Ah! Now I understand.

I had Google Earth on my Mac until yesterday when it became a question mark!

I looked for it in the App folder but it was not there.

My Mac uses Safari so I guess they knew I had not paid for that app.
It came with the computer when I bought it as shop damaged.

Less than half price. Couldn't resist. Ah well.

Google has been on my banned list for a while now. Consider it more banned.

My new phone is powered by Google and it asks so many questions and wants me to have a Google e-mail account. I just passed all that up.

No One Expects The Google Inquisition, But It’s Coming
It's not enough to just fire Damore, now everyone left at the company who might agree with him in any way has to go.
