Nice try, but I still think that I will keep my Pomegranate NS08, that is a harmonica, a projector, shaving machine and also makes coffee.

Last thing I would ever want to do is buy into the Googleplex' pervasive monitoring of all my communications, media, internet usage, ad marketing, tracking, etc etc. They get none of my money.

It is inevitable @Godfrey.
As hard as it may seem for all of us that communicate, just three hour ago, from this forum I greeted a fellow user from Norway, and for old times sake, I visited Bergen town's site to check the weather.
Now look what ads are popping on my screen....

This is the world we live in.

I totally understand your point of view, but trust me on this, no matter what, you will be monitored and this will become more and more part of our lives.
When I was young I read a book by George Orwell and a quote from that drilled a hole into my brain - Happiness can exist only through acceptance.
I do not agree, but it seems that most of the people nowdays, just accept facts, and live their life as cows in the green fields of oblivion.
Sometimes I even wish I never had a phone, or a browser.

Such is life....
