Google is an ad and data company, so they can't help but push ads and watch what you do.

But on the flip side Apple is addicted to building their ecosystem. They will happily cripple the functionality of their devices to force you to buy their MacBook, AirPods, HomePod, Apple Watch, Apple TV, etc.

I personally prefer companies who sell solid hardware and focus on their niche.
