Google isn't the only game in town and isn't even the best alternative for many specific search tasks and needs. Here's how to escape Google's grip with Bing, Blekko, BuzzSumo, DuckDuckGo, SocialMention, Quantcast, Topsy, Wolfram|Alpha, and more.

 

As concerns over the de facto monopoly status of Google continue to grow, I'm reminded of the great philosopher Herman Cain and his infamous line  "blame yourself".

Everybody knows that Google and Eric Schmidt is joined at the hip with the US government, Obama, and the New World Order.

Google's getting a little creepy. I think I'll stick with PayPal.
