@dallin "Degree of dependence" is a great point that I've also learned in this journey. My original goal was to totally drop Google. I've come to accept the fact that that's not very realistic (at this point in time). However, I can certainly lessen my dependence on Google...which I'm doing one step at a time.
@micahbp I'm stuck on those two as well as Google Voice. I can't find a service that does everything it does. T-Mobile's DIGITS was the closest thing I could find, but I tried it and it was a total disaster. For maps, I keep meaning to try HERE but have heard very mixed reviews.
Never heard of HERE. I do want to check out Waze I believe it's called.
@micahbp Waze works really well. Unfortunately, it's owned by Google.
Ah, well, forget that lol!
@micahbp Librem One email confused me with the encryption process. If I send an email to somebody with an encrypted email service, do they get it as just a normal email or do they have to click some kind of link just to access the message? I also didn't like how they delete unencrypted email after 30 days...that would never fly for my work usage.
Same. It is confusing! But even so, you could use something like Proton Mail as well or host your own.
