I must admit that my perception of Google has varied widely over time. When it first started out I was a steadfast AltaVista user. I resented Google's encroachment (and still prefer the control I had over searching with AltaVista), although AltaVista's demise was probably fore-ordained.
I didn't like any of Google's desktop products, knowing well before most how much data was going to Google when you used it. But, over time, when Google didn't do anything nefarious with the huge data warehouse they had, I gave them the benefit of the doubt.
I tried Google+ when it came out, and it was infinitely superior to Facebook. But, since I'm not a social media fan, over time I stopped using it.

1. Technologies that cause or are likely to cause overall harm. Where there is a material risk of harm, we will proceed only where we believe that the benefits substantially outweigh the risks, and will incorporate appropriate safety constraints.
2, Weapons or other technologies whose principal purpose or implementation is to cause or directly facilitate injury to people.
3. Technologies that gather or use information for surveillance violating internationally accepted norms.
4. Technologies whose purpose contravenes widely accepted principles of international law and human rights.
But Google is happy to build a censoring and monitoring search and data collection service for China
