Frank X. Shaw, Corporate Vice President, Corporate Communications, Microsoft writes on The Official Microsoft Blog:
During the last week or so, there has been a fair amount of discussion about how Google is making some unpopular changes to some of its most popular products. You can see some of the concerns and worries about lack of choice and so on in these links.
When we read the coverage last week, it was clear people were honestly wrestling with the choices that had been made for them and were looking for options or alternatives.
The changes Google announced make it harder, not easier, for people to stay in control of their own information. We take a different approach – we work to keep you safe and secure online, to give you control over your data, and to offer you the choice of saving your information on your hard drive, in the cloud, or on both.
So, if the news about Google has you feeling frustrated, or concerned, or both, we have some great, award-winning alternatives:
And to help remind people of these alternatives, we’re placing a series of ads in some major newspapers this week.
If you haven’t tried these Microsoft products and services, give ‘em a shot. If you’ve tried them before and moved on, come on back. We’ve left the light on for you.

A friend of mine is sure tha if Google doesn't wake up themselves in a couple of months of years, then our government will have to wake them up. And you know what's worse? I'd love to leave Google for good, but I can't because my web site gets SEO there, as well as a ton of the people I follow still have accounts on Youtube.
Very good! i change my lifestyle. no google apps!
