Google Blocks Abu Ghraib Images
I went to Google Images to search for it. "Abu Ghraib" brought up only photos of the outside of the prison. Not a single photo from the scandal. Next I searched for "Lynndie England", not a single picture. Next I decided to look for "Charles Graner" her boyfriend who was also prominently features in the pictures, nothing.
See for yourself

Today's entry on the Google blog was altered in a subtle way.
The earlier entry boasted of their Bangalore data center, but the afternoon's version now features the Zurich center more prominently and relegates Bangalore to a footnote. Could it be that the company is a little less boastful in their handling of the outsourcing debate than they thought they could be?

Messaging ogling Google lobby
"At Google's headquarters off Highway 101 in Mountain View, visitors
sit in the lobby, transfixed by the words scrolling by on the wall:"
I thought to actually *message* the viewers with -
I hope you Google-ites get a good kick out of searches!
- no quotes.
Do it, Me-Fi!

What is this?
Why is Google licensing Dilbert for their banner? Compared to the subtle holiday theme banners they do, this just seems....tone-deaf.

Amazon spamming search engines?
Looking around for reviews on Cooper tires, I came across 2 links in the top 20 search results on Google for sites that look legitimate, but are actually redirect pages to Amazon.com (which doesn't even sell auto tires!). What's going on here? Since when is it legitimate for large corporations to spam search engines!??

Google told me
it was Monet's Birthday
. Not only is it a pretty link-worthy event, but Google again created an artsy banner to go along with a holiday. Does anybody have a cache of their special occasion banners?

It's become second nature for many of us to head straight to Google
when trying to find something, and more people seem to be discovering the site all the time. These days, savvy New Yorkers are Googling for love

Vive Le Google!
...or maybe "Viva La Google" or something...
I don't think I've seen Google use their logo to celebrate a non-American holiday before. Will we get holidays from around the world now? Can we expect a glorious logo for St. Swithin's Day? Where will it end????

Google's pretty funny... Let's see how long that light heartedness lasts after The Great Ass of Corporate Opression sits on them.
