Google trying really hard to make me LOG IN
Using Google Maps app, have you noticed how it refuses to remember recently used destinations or favorite search terms unless you log in? Strange, I thought that apps could be build to remember preferences.
And I have no intention to remain logged into Google all day as I don't want all my searches tracked when in a browser using Google in a way that is cookie-independent. And I don't want my searches paired with my Gmail content profile.
So I felt rather smug about Waze which helpfully remembers my preferences like a proper app should.
Now Google comes along to swallow it... and I can guess we'll be forced to log into Google to get the same functionality in future, and probably be forced to use Google+ too for the social bit.
Looks like I'm going to needs multiple Google alter ego IDs in the future.
