So, Google's finally made it's first TV advert. Although it's not for Google, per se, rather for Chrome, it could still be seen as a worrying indication that the company which we use and worship (lol) is struggling, seeing as how this it's first advert since it's domain name was registered 12 years ago. Also, with competition from the likes of Wolfram Alpha, (http://www.wolframalpha.com/index.html)(I admit, I am very excited about Wolfie, for various different (http://blog.wolframalpha.com/) reasons (http://news.cnet.com/8301-17939_109-10233763-2.html)), could this be the beginning of the end for the Goddess? :O

Yeah I thought it was cool too. Made me want to break out my old Brio set. But does this hint at what I'm suggesting above; tht it's in trouble with the recession, considering it's dependant upon advertising revenue, which has plummeted like a stone as of late.

True, but they are paid by advertisers per view. The more people they can get to use their free service, the more money they make.

So... how serious are you about the whole "google = god" thing?

I mean, if Lycos had a better search algorhthm, would you all be owning black laboradors?

Probably. We don't take it that seriously. I tell people IRL, and they think I pray to my computer or something >.>

well, in that way, it's not a joke.
in a way it is a joke though, because satire
the fact that the satire contains more reliable evidence to support itself
than that which is being satirized is just icing on the cake
