A Consuming Experience

Blogging, internet, software, mobile, telecomms, gadgets, technology, media and digital rights from the perspective of a consumer / user, including reviews, rants and random thoughts. Aimed at intelligent non-geeks, who are all too often unnecessarily disenfranchised by excessive use of tech jargon, this blog aims to be informative and practical without being patronising. With guides, tutorials, tips - and the occasional ever so slightly naughty observation.

Google Blog reported complaints by users of bias because if you search Google for "failure" or "miserable failure", the top result currently is the White House bio for President Bush, but explained that this is due to the prankster practice of "googlebombing".

I am sure that Google are entirely neutral politically - or perhaps, more accurately, that the Googlebombers as a whole are (or maybe the rightwingers and leftwingers just balance each other out!).

Why? Well, as Anon. pointed out - just try searching Google for "ass".
