    Yeah, in this case you will not be able to avoid Bing, Google or Yahoo. The alternative search engines do not do at all well with images. You can still limit your use of the the big three when not doing image searches, and the more you do, the less invasive the data mining will be....and the less profit Google, Yahoo and Bing will reap.

    believe it or not I know all the words to this song. It's a stupid song but I heard it once (when I was about 5) and thought it was great.

    Glad it was useful. I am considering a focus on similar internet privacy issues, since this seems to be popular. VPNs? Email? Browser addons? Topic suggestions welcomed!

    Have you noticed how they are trying to sell Voice Commands to us old folks who are not computer literate?

    Don't fall for it!
    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
