Seems Google has been purchasing and stealing data from companies almost since birth, and you know what. WE WERE WARNED.
Yes we were warned about it, In 2001 and yet we ignored it and swept it under the rug, Some saw it, amd were dismissed.
The phone thing, you could get a Librem 5 or PinePhone. Both Linux based and has kill switches for the GPS, wifi, sim, et cetera.
