Anyone out there hear that google is now personalizing all SERP results? That’s right, you don’t have a choice. Well you do, but you can only OPT-OUT you are automatically set as an OPT-IN. To make matters worse, for the average person to be able to OPT-OUT of this, it’s extremely complex. (I’m thinking of the average user here.. To me it’s not all that complex..)
I see privacy issues written all over this.. Google will be collecting all your search queries and internet activity in order to “personalize” your results. Not that Google doesn’t already have VERY HUGE privacy issues as it is. The more changes I see Google doing the worse they appear in my eyes. Personal data is literally leaking all over the place and if Google wanted to, they could basically track every single user on the internet, I mean lots of sites out there use Google analytics, lots of people use gmail, youtube, and blogger.
Now they’ve got this “personalized search” crap, along with the Google Chrome OS (I won’t ever touch this OS, EVER. ), and they’ve launched Google DNS.
Are they doing this just so they can dominate all online advertising everywhere? They’re banning AdWords advertisers left and right for no particular reason, (Advertisers that were advertising legitimate products/services) and making sweeping changes to the SERPS.
Ever try and contact Google? They’re basically all BOTS you can’t contact them, I really start to wonder if there are even any HUMANS at Google.
So in conclusion, I don’t trust Google and neither should you.
This toothbrush is priced around $100+ or so. You might think that’s a bit expensive for a toothbrush However, if you really want to keep your teeth clean this one will do it. I picked it up only because I’m sort of worried about my teeth in the long run, I have a sensitive tooth and a cavity that has been filled already. (Note that I use sensodyne toothpaste at all times) Of course, I have no insurance to go to the dentist as much as I want (nor can I really go to the doctor) I will probably be picking up some “minimal” insurance that will cover catastrophic problems soon.
So anyway, I think the investment is worth it if you have a reason for it. On with the review…
Compared to a “cheap electric” is there really a difference? You bet! The thing spins like crazy and you can feel the plaque being removed, the smart guide shows me which area of my teeth I should be working on, and how long I should brush my teeth. I have a feeling I was never brushing my teeth for 2 minutes before
After brushing I can definitely “feel” a difference. There’s no plaque anymore, it just tears it right off. That’s a HUGE thing right there. My cheap electric never did that nor did any manual toothbrushes I ever used.
If you’re thinking about whitening more than overall teeth health (Which I’m more worried about the health of my teeth rather than whitening) it does help to whiten your teeth. I had lots of stains from coffee/cigarettes and it does seem to help remove that stuff fairly easily. I struggled with it with my old electric and the stuff wouldn’t come off, however with this one it started to come off almost immediately. A lot of it was just tar that was stuck there so it probably just needed something powerful enough to take it off.
So, overall was it worth the investment? Yea, I really think it was. I mean I spend crazy amounts sometimes on computers and other “junk” that I really don’t need, it’s just a good thing to spend a little cash on personal hygiene sometimes
Recently, I purchased a Braun Series 3 Electric Razor from Walmart. Does it really work well? You bet. Totally worth the cash invested, because now I shave without being irritated, and it’s quick and easy. You can’t get much better than that in my opinion.
Setup is pretty straight forward, and I have a model that includes self-cleaning, so apparently I’ll have to buy alcohol packs every once in awhile. I’m kind of lazy sometimes and really I think without self cleaning I would end up forgetting to clean it, so that’s a definite plus, and I don’t mind the slight added expense.
How does the self-cleaning feature work? Well you just plug it into the base and then you can hear it sucking up the alcohol and running the motor to clean everything out, it’s pretty cool, really. The base also has a blue glow which adds to the “cool factor” I guess
As far as how close it shaves, I was quite impressed. It’s definitely the closest shave I’ve ever gotten from an electric razor, and like I said it just sort of “glides” across my skin taking off the hair and not irritating me at all. So yea, quick and easy shave no hassle or fuss with anything. Quite awesome.
