Addicted to Google

I admit it. I love Google. I love Google News Search, Google Image Search and Google Groups.

But it got me to thinking what else could benefit from Google. For instance, Google Refrigerator. I walk up to my fridge, type in what I’m looking for (“tasty soy meal” “ketchup” “spot of tea”) and it returns all my results out of a small chute in the refrigerator’s door.

Have you had any Google visions?

Excellent idea, Chris! Searching for a partner via Google -- what would I put in my search string? Hmm...

I enjoy googling my (unusual) last name. I have discovered that I have distant relatives in Denmark who are microbiologists. And a paper I wrote in college in 1989 is out there for everyone to read thanks to a professor who early on saw the power of the web.

I HATE GOOGLE. There, I said it. I just can't stand it!! I prefer Their system is just a lot more understandable.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
