Well said, @desertlap . There is an interesting counterpoint, which I wrestle with, both philosophically and in personal practice: since your privacy is gone, almost no matter what you do, unless you truly live as a luddite, are you just denying yourself some great services and conveniences by trying to avoid using, for example, Google products and services. I have my own limits - eg, allowing any microphones or cameras to function on devices unless I want them to - but for the rest, every secondary, tertiary....app and device sucks and sells all your personal data anyway. Chrome and Maps remain by far the most convenient tools to use among their peers - believe me, I've tried to boycott and suffer, especially when traveling, or switching among many devices. Since I know I can't protect my data/telemetry privacy, I've recently gone back to using these, and boy is life more pleasant. What do you (all) think?
