Another Google HaterSee 5 Reasons Why I Hate Google.
Another thing. I know there is only 4 reasons. I couldn't come up with the 5th reason. However 5 reasons sound a lot better than 4. Which gives birth to the following contest:
Anybody who by April 31st sends me the 5th reason for which "I hate Google", will be featurd on our "Honours List" and given a suprise gift.
It looks like he found his fifth reason...
Information = Power. All power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Actually, it seems that this Google-hater hates Google for all the wrong reasons. They are too good at search, and that is addictive. Their email service is too good to pass up, but they robotically read his email. You can only find what you search for, therefore you are not learning about stuff you don't already know something about. Their search is so good that people don't surf the web anymore.
None of those reasons are good enough to hate Google. Maybe they could cause mild annoyance. There is only one reason to hate Google... and that is because Google keeps changing their damn algo and makes me work for a living! I would much rather be sitting on some beach than constantly finding more links, reworking pages, adding new content, and just generally working my ass off. Ranking should be a whole lot easier, like back in the days of Infoseek and AltaVista. Grrrr.
