Internet & Networking Remember when Altavista was the search engine? Or Yahoo? They stuffed their search pages with useless, distracting crap, and using them became unpleasant. And then, bam, along came Google, with a simple, clear search page and uncluttered search results. However, now that Google has become this massive behemoth, tracking our every move, and tailoring our search results, leading to only being fed those pages you agree with - isn't it time for something new? Something simple? It might be, and you've undoubtedly heard of them: DuckDuckGo. I'm switching. Update: Just got an email from Gabriel Weinberg, the guy behind DuckDuckGo. The OSNews !bang (!osnews) is now live!

A lot of people around the web are throwing out that Benjamin Franklin quote, "He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither" without bothering to acknowledge that BJ lived in a simple age where they wore RED, us BLUE, and once somebody was defeated, they went home to sulk while we set off the fireworks.


I like this a lot.
