Google ignores 9/11 in their logo
Google.com | 9/11/2009 | smith288

Posted on 09/11/2009 7:05:07 AM PDT by smith288

Google remembers Ghandi, astrology, the first day of spring, Dr. Seuss birthday but nothing about honoring the lives lost and the sacrifice given.

Bunch of shmucks.

...one of their founders is a Russian born Jew...you’d think he would be patriotic to the country that made him rich.

Well, you should be... keep in mind though that there are thousands of libs around our great country that swear that 9/11 was created by the Bush administration. Remember Van Jones?

yes you are pissed but are you surprised?

I am not
For instance I watched the POS stroll out for a moment of silence with the American hating Manchelle and then stroll back in

Bing.com has a lovely tribute photo up.

I don’t use Google anymore specifically because of this kind of crap.

Time for folks to stop using Google and anything related to Google.

Time to put your money where your mouth is, folks.

It may be out of respect. I, for one, would react—probably—negatively to Google attempting to mark this day as they do other days. Let it go and give them a break.

Kind of agree with you.....Twin Towers in the Google symbol would be tasteless.

A yellow ribbon OTOH......

I haven’t used google for a good 6 years now.

Google’s partisanship and anti-Americanism is no surprise to me and many others on FR.

I won’t even give them a hit to see if they honor a holiday or day of remembrance.

Dogpile has a fitting “letterhead” today. I haven't used Google for some time.

Maybe a yellow ribbon in the corner of the screen would be appropriate. Google is in a ‘no-win’ situation with this one, so I can see why they decided to leave it alone.

Agreed. Bing is acknowledging it and I’ve starting using it more and more. Also dogpile.

Who cares about Google and their logo? I use them for search, and right now no one else can touch them, in terms of news search.

If we have to depend on Google to remember 9/11 , what have we become?

I shouldnt be suprised. They haven't once acknowledged the somber realities of the day.

Yet more confirmation that my switch to Bing.com was a good idea.

They’re probably afraid they might “offend” someone.

Perhaps some of us prefer to support a company which shares our values. I’ve been able to find pretty much anything I want on the Web without googling.

They also didn’t think last Memorial Day was worth it. I remember posting comments to the fact they did nothing.

The owners of Google are very liberal. If you want to boycott them on that basis, so be it.

Right now Google is the best search engine and doesn’t seem to discriminate against conservatives in their search results. I will continue using them for the time being. Bing is good but doesn’t have a good news search function. I don’t think it is noticeably better than Google search.

I am shocked they are not touting Van Jones’s “green volunteer day” or whatever the heck they are calling it.

Bing always has a tasteful, attractive even soothing splash page. I switched during the first week Bing was up. I was tired of Google’s frequently offending splash and I didn’t have to endure that any more. It was that easy for me. Great marketing advantage, that.
