MyDrive Connects requires otherwise No internet connection

I installed myDrive connect only to find that it would not start, instead displaying a splash-screen containing the message No internet connection.

After several hours wasted, I found in a log file that it was trying to access the URL

That failed for reasons that are not relevant to this discussion. As a result, MDC declares No internet connection.
End of story.

Wouldn't it be be logical for it to test a connection to What on earth has google got to do with it?
