|Yup, Google sucks big style at the moment. Almost the first page of any search for a product name or a simple set of (non numeric) keywords is "buy this here" or "compare prices for thing at our shop".|
Especially annoying is the increasing lack of localisation. Why do I, searching from google.co.uk, want to know special offers from the US? Very few of the budget resellers will ship to the UK anyway.
That's interesting ........ I thought the localisation wasn't working due to the CustomizeGoogle Firefox extension ........
I'm always surprised by the tactics of the unethical rabidly sales obsessed people. Recently a guy knocked on my door and said "Sorry for the delay but due to a backlog of work the technicians havent had a chance to transfer your phone (to another company) so I'm working all weekend to catch up". Needless to say I hadn't made any request to transfer my phone and the only tool he was carrying was an unsigned contract.
