Google is a Monopoly and the FTC should investigate Google, Smartphone Brain Hacking

I hope 60 minutes will release the complete video about Google being a monopoly. I watched it on TV and it was very interesting even though they gave a lot of air time to the lame CEO of crappy and defective Yelp. Since Yelp has never been able to tell a fake review from a real review their content is pure spam and should be taken out of Google completely.
Frankly I would be happy if Google forced Yelp to go out of business, which is very likely.
However there are many thousands of business being treated unfairly by Google and I do want the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to put new regulations on Google like the European Union has.

Who are the Competitors of Upwork.com? Should you use them?

I am still using and performing ongoing tests with Upwork.com.
I must admit even though ZenDesk gives me poor responses at first, they do not give up and they keep trying. Even after I am very tough on them. I am trying to find reasons to like Upwork.com yet it is difficult as their system needs big improvements in user friendliness.
E.g. I want to send proposals to USA only jobs, so Upwork wants to verify my drivers license and my bank statement. Of course their software for this process is defective, and ZenDesk tells you to keep trying. Then after 3 tries Upwork cuts you off and will not let you try anymore. Next you have to email ZenDesk and send in a screen shot with the Upwork error message. Then ZenDesk support has to reset Upwork.com and then tells you to try again, however not 3 times, and then send them the next error message. Yes I know this entire defective process is totally ridiculous, there are 4 more steps and emails to ZenDesk and finally it works.
ZenDesk did a good job on follow up to make sure it is working properly.


Another big problem with Upwork.com is that you cannot set different prices for different project types in your profile. E.g. I would like to set a price of $120 per hour for advanced programming work and only $70 per hour for on-page search engine optimization (SEO) projects.

Upwork.com is a large service that I do not recommend. You should consider using their competitors.
Upwork.com seems like the "old dying service" and their competitors are eating their lunch. Plus they use ZenDesk which provides average support.

I found another excellent article on this topic:

How Safe Are Password Managers?

This video is very funny and makes an important point.


Based on all the past problems Sony has faced with hackers and the fact that Sony did not do a good job of protecting passwords.  Furthermore with the general public concerned about the US government spying on citizens I thought it would be important to explain why everyone should be using an Online Password Manager for business, personal, SEO and marketing. No one has your passwords except you. We can not see or retrieve them because they are stored in a secure military 256k encrypted vault in the cloud.
