1) I don't personally care what happens to Google, one way or the other. Google has no effect whatsoever on my life, positive or negative. 2) YouTube? Really? It existed for HOW long before Google bought it? Heck, I have a number of YouTube subs that predate Google's involvement by years. 3) Search. Google has managed to dominate web search, yes. But it's not as if search doesn't predate Google. Heck, I remember using Gopher on a regular basis.
