Google pissed me off
Sunday, September 11, 2005
I'm not really pissed off. What I am is very anoyed at google's new google bar.
Google updated my toolbar on the background without my consent. Well, I kind of gave my consent (without reading it) when I checked that checkbox when I donwloaded the software.
The new update has new colourful icons and some new functionality that I don't use.
Google, however, decided to take away the functionality I do use very often: the dictionary link. I.e. You used to type a word on the bar's entry field and when you selected "Dictionay" from the drop down you were wisked away to dictionary.com and by some sort of magic your word's definition appeared on the screen.
I was anoyed to find new cutsy icons and the drop item to dictionary.com gone. GONE, I tell you - I guess I will now have to go to dictinary.com directly.
It's not a big deal, but I will now have to change my working pattern.
I'm also worried about what else I agreed to when I checked that "do no evil" check box: my first borne? My future earnings? Google what do you want from me? Leave me alone...
Yeah that sucks. Jose, I'm not sure how you feel about this technique but thought I might throw it out there...
