Spotify borders on evil. They are buying up podcasts and removing them from the open podcast/RSS framework and locking users into a proprietary platform.
- DuckDuckGo is great. Better than Google search since it's unfiltered. DDG uses both Google and Bing APIs and gives only the real results -- no manipulated results like Google.
- Fastmail is awesome. It provides all the features of Gmail with no ads and no scanning of my content for marketing purposes. I pay I think $3 per month on a multi-year basis. The only thing I noticed when moving from Gmail years ago is that the spam filtering is a bit more aggressive with more false positives than Gmail.
- Newpipe is a great Android app for YouTube videos without informing Google of who is watching what. It also has a download feature.
