What is your value to the economy where you are, and do you pay your taxes?

If the google search engine disappeared, everyone would simply use a different one, so no added value there.

If google's intrusive, privacy-destroying, but ultimately useless ad-targeting stopped, no-one would miss it -- but most of the companies that use it would suddenly find themselves better off (study after study has shown that it results in zero sales improvement over untargeted advertising -- not google's own studies, of course).

If android disappeared, it would obviously be the year of the Linux phone OS!
Or the HuaWei one, which is already looking pretty damned good (I can't read Mandarin, but all those Chinese characters, like I say, make it look pretty damned good!)

I neither know nor care what else alphabet is involved in -- I've got my own life to live, and little desire to waste much of it on them.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
