Somestimes Google Really Sucks!

Sometimes Google SUCKS so bad that there are no words in the English Language to describe it adequately.

Here's a quote from:

1. Focus on the user and all else will follow.
Since the beginning, we've focused on providing the best user experience possible. Whether we're designing a new Internet browser or a new tweak to the look of the homepage, we take great care to ensure that they will ultimately serve you, rather than our own internal goal or bottom line. Our homepage interface is clear and simple, and pages load instantly. Placement in search results is never sold to anyone, and advertising is not only clearly marked as such, it offers relevant content and is not distracting. And when we build new tools and applications, we believe they should work so well you don't have to consider how they might have been designed differently.

What a fucking bunch of unadulterated BULL-SHIT!

Many corporations have these lofty "Goals", "Mission Statements" and "Hype".

Have you ever clicked on the "Contact Us" link in any one of the many "Google" Enterprises / Applications websites?

There is not one "Google owned" enterprise that allows for a direct communication with any of the people involved in the company.

There is no "Form" to fill out where you can make any complaints anywhere on any website. What usually happens, IF, they have it available, is that you get directed to some silly little forum where general people respond to your complaint or question. Most of the time, the responses from the people that take the time to respond are similar complaints the one you have. COMPLETELY USELESS!

EVGA, a company that manufactures high end computer components like Video Cards and Mother Boards has one of the BEST support programs in the entire world! Not only do they make it easy for people to get support, but they allow direct communication with ALL of the principle players in the company. They're not afraid of criticism nor do they brush away complaints that people have.Remember the Google … Focus on the user? Unlike Google, these people are really committed to the users.

The EVIL GOOGLE EMPIRE is the absolute complete opposite of this and it is contrary to their fucking hype of "Don't be Evil"

The corporation is becoming one of the sorriest corporations on this planet. They don't give a flying FUCK about the user. All they care about, just like Microsoft, is WORLD DOMINATION for whatever products they're pushing.

Google, how can you say you are so concerned about the "User" if in your quest to surpass Microsoft there is no place a user can voice a complaint that will actually get some recognition.

There new slogan should be are you Googleized yet?

Look, Don't get me wrong! I think that Google has done some very impressive things and they have some cool innovations; there are a few things about Google that I really like; including the blog software that I am using right now and their search engine. There are some things that I don't like.

Here are a few things that I don't like.

Ever since Google took over YouTube, many of the the videos are now unavailable to people outside the USA. Much of the content has been deleted in other areas.

I guess what really set me off, and it's a small thing, is their home page. What used to be a perfectly good; perfectly pristine page; a page without a lot of extra hoopla and behind the scenes gee-whiz kind of stuff has now joined the ranks of the new web glitz and glitter sleaze. Hey when MTV first started music videos were just that. Great vids of bands playing. I love progress, but some of the newer vids are pretty sorry.

Google's home page now has a fade in. I started noticing it about a month or so ago.

It's insignificant for the most part. For me it's the principle of the thing. Their fade in uses memory and processing cycles I would rather devote to other things and the worst thing like I said before, is that there is no place to ask "Why did you do that cheesy thing? Just because you think it looks cool?"

Additionally, Google has been gobbling up anything and everything that is important in the Internet. Eventually most of the major content will be in the hands of a few "powerful" entities. He who owns the bats, balls, gloves, uniforms and stadiums gets to make the rules of how the game is played.

This means the soon there will be more censorship and control over the Internet content. Google is slowly capturing the #1 spot for control of the content on the Internet.

Our world is de-evolving from a world that was filled with as much variety as there were sands in the sea shore to a new world of corporate sameness. Walmart, Microsoft, McDonald's, Google, GE, etc., How many times a day to we have to hear "I'm lovin it" or "Walmart. Save Money, Live Better Walmart!"

It's a sameness with cheap merchandise from China where the kids all have the same toys, we wear the same shirts and eat the same snacks. We watch the same controlled news and a pay huge sums of money to Insurance Providers that we have to sue in order to get a settlement.

Power is in the hands of the Information Providers.
