And then you land on a website which has AdSense/Google Analytics/Google something else. Oh, and then they have countless social embeds (facebook/twitter/youtube/etc) spying on you as well.
Yeah, this will totally work.

Google is number one ad selling platform on the Internet. They are also number one search engine with no competitors in sight (bing is pretty useless for anything peculiar/professional/serious, yandex' cache is very small, baidu is only meant for Chinese). They are raking in cash even without selling users' data.
It's the "greed" economy, not "data" economy.
I knew this day would be coming a long time ago so there's a very elegant solution to this madness.
1) Use a separate IMAP/POP3 client (thunderbird is nice) to fetch your mail from Gmail
2) Make your Firefox clean your session data on exit (cookies, web cache, offline website data - that's enough)
3) Adbock+/Ublock Origin with anti tracking and anti social lists for good measure
This still leaves your IP address unprotected but if you're concerned enough, use a provide which generates random IP addresses or VPN.
Seriously. It's the Nth time we learn about that and the result is always the same.
There are ways to publish such videos without such insane restrictions. Even youtube nowadays seems a better platform. Also we have vimeo and torrents.
Now at the same price bracket as Note 7/SGS7 here's the list of features you will not get:
Updates to new major Android versions will be ceased just 24 months after the release. Google is out of their minds.
It's also a massive security problem, having no security model.
LMAO. Pretty much all Chrome extensions require access to "all websites" and your "entire browser history" which means they can gather all your browser information, including keystrokes, aka passwords.
So much security, my ass.
Yeah, this update kills thousands thousands of add ons, whiles many others will stop working properly.
Next on their agenda is killing XUL off which means Firefox will become yet another Google Chrome with a tad better cache management.
It looks like Google Chrome, it acts like Google Chrome, it is Google Chrome. Now tell me, what the reason for Firefox existence? Once a unique web browser with unique add-ons (NoScipt, Firebug, DownThemAll, etc), soon only a shadow of itself.
I downvoted this news but it wasn't enough. Will
Is it a slow news day or what?
Google initially built its reputation by offering vanilla Android at affordable prices and that made Nexus 4 and 5 hugely popular devices.
Then for some reasons they decided to compete with Samsung and other big players by offering the largely insipid (in terms of features) Nexus 6 and it's not like this phone tanked, but it was several times less popular than the preceding Nexuses.
With the Nexus 5x and 6p Google seemingly lost the remainder of common sense by offering them at the prices comparable to first tier smartphones like Galaxy S6 or Note 5.
Perhaps Google needs to return to its roots instead of offering barebone phones (no SD slot, no removable battery, no dual sim support, very basic camera setup) for very high prices, since we already have companies which out-android'ed Google: I'm talking about ZTE Axon 7 and OnePlus 3.
