Hi All,

I'd like to be able to sync my laptop with an android phone without any data going to servers owned by large companies.  It seems quite difficult.  All these companies want my private data to go through their servers.  Does anyone do this?  Has anyone done this?  

My laptop is currently a Mac but a linux solution would be acceptable too.

My ancient phone died recently and I am looking at getting an android phone, although I find that the inability to control what apps can do on android is infuriating to the point of being a deal breaker.
