Oh jeez, you really need to stop looking at Google through your Android-colored glasses!
Google was a cool tech company a decade ago when they came up with products that benefited the users, namely an email product that offered 1GB of space free when others gave you 20MB, and of course search. Since then they've morphed from a tech to an advertising and data-mining company, and all of their products reflect this.
Google:"Do you want to sign up for G+" or "Do you want to use your real name on Youtube?"
Google:"OK, we'll ask you later"
Do No Evil hasn't existed at Google for a decade, if it ever did.
Whine whine. Your typical slashdot "google this google that...blah blah blah...do no evil...now give me my +5" post. Are you SERIOUSLY suggesting that asking you to sign up for google+ qualifies as EVIL? My god, the bar for that one has really gotten low lately. You've offered me a decent service for free while only very slightly inconveniencing me....EVIL!!!!!!!!11!!!1!!!!!one!!!
Google does a ton of things in the last decade that benefit users, or at least myself, greatly:
1) youtube - Great place for me to host videos to share with my family. They're all private URLs so not publicly searchable, and I know pretty much anybody that I want to share the url with can see them, even on a tablet or phone. And if google wants to do some video datamining of my 3 year old daughter doing something cute, who the fuck cares.
2) maps - Nevermind that it's not even 10 years old. Most of the best improvements (street view, real time traffic, predictive traffic, navigation, public transit) were all created in the last 5-6 years. All accessible from my android phone. It's amazing how useful this is. In 2004 I visited Chicago for a weekend and used only public transit. As a tourist, I remember how nervous I was using it. I had the maps, trying to figure out what bus to take to where, and what connections I need to pick up and seeing how they all timed up. Nightmare to me. I visited there again this summer and unlike last time, I didn't plan a thing as far as how to get here or there. When I needed to go somewhere, I just put in the location and it showed me all the options for bus or rail. In 2004, I didn't go anywhere without knowing exactly where I was in relation to everywhere else. This time, I couldn't tell you shit about where I was, as I didn't need to know. Just followed a few simple instructions and I was where I needed to be
3) google+ - yes, some of us actually use it. I can't stand facebook. You have little control over what you see, they're always breaking your privacy settings, and it's filled with crap (half the "posts" are some score or achievement somebody in farmville or some other crappy game). Google let me control exactly what/who I want to see, and they've always been pretty good at not "breaking" privacy options.
4) gmail - even this is less than a decade old (launched in 2004), but I'll give you a break there. But still, tons of great improvements in UI design over the last 5 years. There has been cool enhancements, like the Google Talk feature
5) video chat - text chat has already been pretty easy to do among different os and device options, but video was a different story. Even 2-3 years ago, I remember trying to do video chats between android and ipad. So very few options. The ones I did try were all buggy (ex: some devices the video would be upside down), and blatantly missing support for obvious features (like rotating displays). The ones that worked halfway decent quickly made themselves annoying after some updates were released. Since google got serious about this in the last year or so, this is has become a piece of cake
6) voice - Thanks google. With the help of a $40 obi device, I haven't paid a penny for my home phone service in 3 years (sadly it looks like that may be coming to and end in the next 5 months or so). The abilty to ring mulitple phones (and use your contacts to control who rings to what phones) is awesome. The spam call detection is fairly good (looking at my history, google has saved me from a ton of useless interruptions)
7) android - I had an i-device, and it always drove me crazy. I've been much happier since moving to android. And all of the above mentioned features are accessible from it.
I'm sure I could go on, but despite your typical troll response with the "do no evil" buzz-phrase in it, I've found much of what google has done to be immensely beneficial to me. Perfect? Hell no. But FAR ahead of most everything else that's been offered by others so far. And I haven't paid a penny for any of it (except my nexus 4)
