Huh? Maybe you'd be better of living in a cabin in the woods far away from all computers, safe from your paranoia that they will one day take over the world and start eating humans.Cyborg Ninja wrote:
And no way I'm giving Google my cell phone number.
Then again, I'd have to wonder if I'm comfortable with Google storing my email so they can create advertising revenue from it.
But really, there's no such thing as free. If you want "free" e-mail, you have to pay for it by seeing ads. The thing about google is it shows you ads related to what's in your e-mails--a human doesn't read your e-mail, your info isn't shown to anyone else, and they don't make any money off you unless YOU PERSONALLY click one of the ads in your inbox. No one's taking advantage of you.
The only way to get what you want is to use non-free e-mail: buy your own damn e-mail server then you can do whatever you want with it.
