Talk Android: Project eelo is an attempt at a non-Google smartphone OS for privacy’s sake

Talk Android: Project eelo is an attempt at a non-Google smartphone OS for privacy’s sake. “Another year, another stab at taking on Google with an alternative operating system. Project eelo is a new open-source OS that will have its own web services and shun Google for the sake of privacy. Why is it named eelo? ‘Because eels are small fishes that can hide into the sea,’ says Gaël Duval, French founder of Project eelo. His Kickstarter page has already surpassed its $30,000 goal with almost $50,000 and there’s over two weeks left. Can Duval succeed where well established companies like Firefox have failed?”
