Try it!


And did you know one can set-up their Google home page in Klingon...?

Or that the company's two founders tried to sell Google for a mere $750,000 in 1999?

Excite (today minor search player 'Ask') actually said 'pass'... today's Google's worth $200 BILLION...

I’m not much on their political views but Google DID turn on the NSA and say ‘NO’, won some respect from me there

Did you know if a liberal has a scandal a year later Google erases all links to it in newspaper articles but if a conservative gets a parking ticket 7 billion links come up forever and ever.

How come Bing can't do that?

Of course, Bing's geographic location calls to mind an interesting video result for that search (hosted by Google of course):

Tilt is French and the “L” is silent, so I Google it quite often

The NSA? Google is the NSA on steroids. The NSA can only dream of all the metadata that Google collects daily.

You don't say ...

Then please explain why Google is obsessed with the emptiness of Obama's suit.

empty suit

Could it be that Google is data-driven, but you are talking-point driven?

Oh, it’s bizarre watching how they manipulate results- ain’t NO doubt. I wonder what the arrangement between them and HuffPo was. HP dominates most every damn topic, she sold the company for $15M... and HuffPo has never made a profit yet

Seriously, one thing Google DID do was encript search results for anybody’s who’s signed into Google.

Prior to this, I myself could see the words searched and find the house it came from- anybody with Statcounter could. At least that isn’t public info anymore, but as a blogger I myself lost a valuable tool, of course.

Google will always gather data, but you give them access only when you use Google, which is voluntary... NSA hacking my WiFi is a whole other thing, isn’t it?.

I myself have to be open to Google, as I am tied into Blogger, etc. I assume nothing’s private anymore- it’s not at this time.

Sorry but disagree....respectfully

Google frontloads leftist crap....per their RDB founders

That or search engine techie apparatchiks are 95% lefty hipsters....possible I admit

But Google reeks of leftist crap

You have to glean through reams of proggressive agit prop to get to the occasional conservative POV

Its like YouTube...type in Iraq war combat footage and at top you get Bush hating anti war vids with far far less viewing totals and less search title accuracy

All that is not happenstance

Frankly despite all the talk to the contrary

We are getting our asses kicked new or old media and dissemination

Why....is Silicon Valley and Cupertino or Mountain View really all lib kids?

Just look at their ...Google..marquee.....they detest Christ and George Washington

I’ll bet they don’t know much about the black woman they used today except she’s black....or they would not have picked her....ignorance too
,
I despise Google...

They make Larry Ellison look sympathetic...lol

It’s not that they’re leftists... it’s that they think the rest of the world is filled with stupid babies and they’re the only ones privileged with intelligence. That’s why they change your search terms without asking. That’s why they sign you up to their latest fad (wave, buzz, plus...) without even a warning. That’s why they try to mess with Egypt’s internal politics. They believe they know what’s right and what’s wrong in the world, and they believe you don’t.

Then again, given that, it’s not surprise at all that they’re leftists.
