The conqueror

Reading this title, you might be feeling it’s a reference to some amazing political personality who has taken up the newspaper columns and is popularly hated or loved. Or probably it is something related to psychology and I’m over here identifying the types of people who are the “go-getters”

Well no, this article is about how you reached this blog, this page and I can bet an arm that the served you used was a google extension. Also, mind you I am pretty serious cause my arm is special to me and just by the way I won the bet right?

So how did this idea bump into my mind? Internet explorer. Did you know it got updated and looks pretty different but baby, Google is love. Most of us have our emails over here, it has the best maps, amazing place to store photos and the beautiful playstore.

When did google exactly take over our lives? When it started to love us, obviously! Less advertisements, no lagging, better search results. Google loved us and we loved it. Tough to find such mutual customer-product relationships in the electronic industry. We have come so far and now I ask you if we should let go?

It’s been years come on! We can’t let a single company have access to our entire lives. That’s how a dictator comes to place. Well, if you ever read about Julius Caesar (not the Shakespeare play- that is not real) he too had to end his life for the independence of Rome. We seriously don’t learn anything from history and then criticise the subject.

What went wrong with yahoo though? It just became too uncool, no wonder dad still uses it. This is the era of net neutrality and start-ups and we, consumers don’t even want to give the competition a second glance?

Who said Google has all your information wrapped up in a pretty pink cloth and put up in a basket which is enclosed in a big lock? Google? I know that feeling honey. It hurts.

Google may seem a sweet thing which is incomparable but no. The world is innovating so fast how could you be still stuck to Google. Did you hear about DuckDuckGo which doesn’t retain your information? Or when was the last time you used Bing or Quora?

To be honest change is beautiful and Google is being that boss in the office who should’ve retired long ago.
