RantMS vs Google Pin

So how the scene looks like now.

Google struck the wrong cord and gained the notoriety towards lack of data security.
It's got everything we need, the Google drive is so agile and swift gives a very good user experience.
But our big customers do not want any of the things be shared on google drives. In fact, nothing from google, right from Hangout to gmail. All blacklisted.

And then there's another guy Microsoft. Most of the customers pushing us towards using MS Teams & Sharepoint, but it's just still not very user-friendly.

Just a very basic need - I want to delete a document from a drive. I can understand, it would throw an exception when another user is using the document.

But even when all have logged out, signed off and got back home and sleeping, this stupid Sharepoint says, someone's still using the document and cannot delete or rename it. But wouldn't tell who's exactly using it. This is unbelievably screwing up productivity. But nobody cares and we need to continue to use these and drop off google from the daily use.


Moral of the story - Even if you are dumb, if you exhibited trust & integrity, customers would not leave you. On the other hand, you are the smartest a*se in the world but you break the trust, nobody's with you. Hope google learnt the lesson.

I still don't know which major data-security incident left the customers blacklist Google forever. I think it's a gradual/chronic one? Google kept collecting all the user data and put them to use for advanced AI/ML thing to push ads. I guess that's where it started. Bummer now!.
