Goodbye Google, I’m leaving you…

December 13th, 2005 · No Comments

My dear Google,

For many years you have been my closest ally on the Internet. You have found things I never knew existed, including things I wish you hadn’t found. You’ve been rock solid and not a drama queen in your design and simplicity. You’ve stuck by me through thick and thin…

Trouble is over the last couple of years you’ve been getting rather fat and lazy. You performance in the search department has been lacking and you keep giving me results that I didn’t ask for. You’ve got loads of friends but to be honest, they are paying to take advantage of you and leading me astray with their links…

Hell, even I paid to be one of your closest friends and all you did was bleed my credit card dry and gave me nothing in return.

You’ve stopped going to gym and have turned into a gargantuan who seems intent on swallowing up the world with you mail, stats, mapping services, all of which I have tried to enjoy with you but I can’t help feeling that you’re getting too big to fit into that streamlined home page…

So I’m leaving you. I’m not sure who will be my new search mate but they will most likely be a reflection of what you used to be; fast, accurate, streamlined and a search friend not an enemy…

Goodbye…..
