Why Google? Why?

Filed under: Rant — Tags: , , — yaadayaada @ 3:57 pm

Why did Google have to copy Bing and have those ugly background images? Very sad day for Google!

Update: Looks like Google heard that we don’t like it. They took the images back! Yay!

p.s. Bing’s background images are any day better!

p.p.s I shouldn’t have to log in to my Google account every time to get rid of the ugly background!


  1. I don’t see why the background images in Bing are necessarily better. I like the ones in Google. And you don’t need to login to your account to get rid of it, in fact it’s quite the opposite. And they haven’t taken it off.

    Sometimes not posting anything is much better than posting drivel – just a reader’s opinion.

    • Kritika, not sure if you saw it first thing in the morning(PST). Until I posted the update, it was the way I said! By default they had an image, and one had to log in to remove it.

  2. YY – Whatcha talking about? what background? you should get a screen shot next time to enlighten folks like me.

    KRITIKA – Sometimes not wrting any comment is better than telling a blogger whats drivel and whats not. Just another readers opinion. 🙂

      • Thanks ‘Me’ for enlightening Boo. I go to at least a million times a day.
        Imagine the horror, when I see a bright colored page instead of sweet and simple google search page.
        Anyhoo, glad Google came to its senses and made the images optional!

  4. Not related to the current post – but don’t see where else I can say this

    I saw your comment on the Tamizh songs quiz at myanasworth – Yabba ! We are not worthy !!

    You are the song lyrics goddess. Please put a scanned xeros of your tiruvadis on the blog somewhere – vandhu kaalla thottu othikkarom

  5. PV, Thanks! I found TPL’s tougher than MyAnasworth. I am not very good at 90’s and most latest songs. So I guess it purely depends on luck! 🙂

    Boo, Too much Oliyum Oliyum indeed!
