Avoid Google: How To Eliminate Google From Your Life (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Google has gone far beyond search: it's offering up everything from email to video (via YouTube); driving directions to online shopping; book browsing to social networking, and much, much more.

While Google's expansion has made our lives easier, it has also sparked no shortage of privacy concerns and complaints.

If all this criticism has got you concerned, here are some tips for how you can avoid Google--and come close to eliminating it from your online life.
