    Google managed to thoroughly tick me off recently and I want to detach as much as possible. I am looking for replacement services suggestions, specifically a good email service, a good cloud storage, a good search engine and a good calendar program. I would prefer to not use any Microsoft products, as I don't want all my eggs in one basket and I don't want the same situation that Google caused.

    My needs:

    For cloud storage I would like over 5 GB free, as I have just over 4 GB in Google Drive right now. I would also like a program that I can access either via PC or Android.

    For email, something I can access via PC or Android.

    For calendar, something I can access via PC or Android, and allows other people can see my schedule via PC, Android or iPhone.

    For search engine, something effective, that is both somewhat broad and yet able to focus in on my search terms.

    Thank you.

    The oddly named 'Duck Duck Go' search engine works fine for me, I haven't used Google for a long time;https://duckduckgo.com
