Ten years ago I believed in Google being the most universal platform for all things online – personal data and media management, communications and sharing, productivity tools, ets. Now, ten years later, I’m fully Mac and IOS invested and pretty much sceptical about Google-anything. My list of Google grudges:
Chrome become bloated and clunky.
Nexus 7 tablet became obsolete in about a year.
Nexus 6 had its share of glitches and abysmal battery life.
Chromebooks never hit mainstream.
RIP Google+ as well as dozens of other Google projects sent to graveyard, not exactly a confidence-inspiring policy to jump on Google’s apps and tools.
Google Docs did not work for me, a pathetic imitation of Microsoft Office.
Google Photos, backup to hard drive is a mess, on/off integration with Google Docs is a mess.
Blogger turned into spammer paradise.
Feedburner, abandoned project.
Google Sites, a great tool if you want to make early abortion to your unborn site. Google search ranking algorithm absolutely hates next of kin.
The pattern is here – confusion, inconsistency, short life.
