#Google killed a lot of projects ... It would be nice to kill #chrome too

@hyde to be honest, first time I realized that I relied on a service which could be killed at any time, was, when I was stopped from using Google SMS for free (integrated with Gmail at that time).

It helped me a lot as I did not have phone at that time. Soon when it was removed, I noticed that someday other services will be removed too.

Now I see your site once again I remembered this all. Thanks, so nostalgic.

Which reminds me of my first time when they cancelled a service on me.

That service was my phone. I had just barely 50 MB internal storage available when they decided that 50 MB is the perfect size for their Google Play Services and Google Play Store.
Of course, you could not uninstall those and you could not continue using the Android Market, which was functionally equivalent, just 50 MB smaller.


I mean, in a way, I have to thank them, because that was my motivation to learn how to root my phone, which was the gateway drug to Custom ROMs, which was the gateway drug to Linux, which is kind of my job now. But also, fuck Google.
