I try to avoid Google every day now but of course certain tasks, especially Google search just works too well. Since last year after Snowden I often think ‘I shouldn’t do this search on Google.’ hmm… I tried a few other search engines and some of them are quite ok and also claim to respect your privacy (duckduckgo.com/) but who knows…
For sure the very early days of being exited and maybe even fan of Google (remember how the smart boys conquered the IT world) are long time gone. Google is not cool any more. Google is not hip at all! ‘Don’t be evil.’ Ha! Ha! Ha! ..*hysterical* :/ … and btw: Hey Google! I don’t care about your happy, surprising animated logos on ‘great’ anniversaries or sports occasions. Your Doodles make me sick! Hello!!! The fun times on the Internet are over! Absolutely! Did you guys notice?!? …
Ok. So, it’s about time to get rid of you, slowly but surely. Let’s just start with the logo. This nifty little Chrome addon DOOD-remove will make the empty Google start page even more white. No more happy colored letters. (And no more dreadful Doodles!! Arrgh…)
Install *click click*. Good bye! AAaahhh… *relieved*. Just pure white! It feels so good. It’s a start!

Greed powers our economy through restrictive licensing deals and claims of copyright. What enables this demand is the ability to control access or demand incentives as compensation for their work. The Internet, built without these restrictions, is being threatened to include protections for licensed and copyrighted content.
G.R.E.E.D. (Glom & Restrict Entities on Existing Domains) demonstrates how a web user’s browsing experience and anonymity can be threatened through restrictions, take-downs, censorship, and monetary blackmail if such license and copyright restrictions are imposed on the Internet.

White-out the over-produced reality of the Kardashians*.
In a time where many wish to marry out of love but can’t because of how others feel about the sanctity of it all, we have celebrity Kim Kardashian to thank for showing us how great celebrity life can be… gorgeous ceremony, romantic honeymoon, million dollar licensing fees, and everything in between.
As the masses drool over her over-produced reality, for others, ignorance can be a true bliss with a little help from the Dash-Out browser blockers.
* Also blocks out executive producer Ryan Seacrest.
