RE: Fuck you, Google.
It doesn't do it to me. I have to think how I managed to stop it from directing me to the localised google site... Can't remember though... maybe it was by switching off geolocation in my browser (it does come up with a lot of crap when I use IE, which has geolocation turned on).

Solution: start using Opera Angel

EDIT: Real solution: Depending on your browser, google ways of switching off geolocation (and yeah, I totally get the irony of asking google how to do it)

RE: Fuck you, Google.
The thing I HATE about google is trying to search a question. Say I said: "What is the colour of blah blah blah?"
Results:

Stop picking and choosing google, give me the fucking answer!!

Google shows results using keywords, but when you want to ask a question, it will just pick the words out of the sentence and find each one in a paragraph somewhere on the internet, and give you that result.

You're googling the question in quotation marks, right?


(Or are you talking about the suggestions while typing your search? 'Cause that can be turned off, too)

You can turn off auto-complete someplace too...

RE: Fuck you, Google.
From what I'm reading, it's not only a google issue, but a browser issue as well.

I think I'll be trying out this mysterious Opera you speak of, Vera.

All browsers have the option of turning geolocation off (I'm pretty positive). But I do think Opera is a great browser. Tried it some years ago and have never looked back.

RE: Fuck you, Google.
You can ask a question but google doesnt read it entirely but searchs for each word in any order.

Irony

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

It does if you put in quotes. But if no one has ever asked the same question, you'll get zilch.

Googling is an art. You just gotta know how to ask... Same with asking people out Tongue

Well. Google is still better than Bing. Also, someone just watched the holy grail Smile.
