Google is evil

A friend told me he was interested in the old 4x4 Toyota vans from the 1980's. So I Googled "4x4 Toyota Van" to check them out.



Fifth line down, fifth across.

How could this be? What search algorithm would do this to me?

One that Apple didn't design. Ask WVvan. He'll tell you all about it. He's a big Apple fan.

Re: Google is evil

I believe the software is similar to face recognition technology. Give it the parameters to look for and off it goes.

There is no such thing as privacy anymore.

You're missing the point. It's not a Toyota 4x4 van, they are horrid, horrid things, owned by horrid, horrid people.

Re: Google is evil

Google is your friend. It was trying to politely guide you away from evil and to the path of righteousness. Try searching using exclusions "Toyota 4x4 van -clooney"

I think this could be Z's next business venture. He could use the SMB for "Clooney Sighting Tours". I cant imagine the amount of Single Ladies that would line for an opportunity to ride shotgun with the promise of a Clooney sighting.
