Re: Yeah, pull the other one

"My wife isn't tech literate. She came to me a year ago and asked me to de-Google her Android phone.

As far as possible, all Google services and apps have been disabled - only the Play Store was still enabled. Chrome has been replaced by Firefox and DuckDuckGo does the searching. So far, she is very happy, although I did turn Google Maps back on for her - but disabled history."

I have to ask... Why?
