Man! What the hell's going on with Google lately?!?
First we find out they're selling specific search terms to Corporations like BP
("oil" "spill"), and now they're screwing up the only reason people go there and/or are attracted to it in the first place?
I'm sure it won't last, as I'm also sure every Tom, Dick and Harry's couch is shaking in torment as we speak. They'll figure out their mistake
when their shares start plummeting, and fix it. I think it's obvious they want a boycott just as much as BP...or they're testing to see if we will
subject them to it (i.e. testing us).
Death of a Giant: I used to recommend Google everywhere I went (last decade and a half or so), but as of late, I've just reprogrammed all my local
start page's search boxes to either Bing or Startpage.com.
I hate to say it, but good riddance to them, as I've taken all I can take from everywhere else; I'm sure as hell not taking it from some egotistical
meaningless search provider when there are others sooooo much better.
When I do a "Search", I want all possible results for a damn reason! And I'm sure they know exactly what reason I'm talking about.
