O.K. Google: WTF?

Update: As of 14:16 EDT US, the Google search page is back to normal. Hooray!

This morning I find that www.google.com now has a background image that I hate! From what I can tell, the only way to get rid of it is to sign in with a Google account. WTF?!?

Let me think . . . Do I want the company that is in the hot-seat for accidentally collecting WiFi data with the Street-view cars to link all my searches to an account? I think not!

Update: According to Google employee Paul, this celebration will only plague us for one day.  For those who aren’t celebrating, I created a minimal search page on Bovitron.com. Enjoy!

Grrr on companies that think they know what I want better than I do!

  1. The way to remove it is to logon using your google id and click on change background image. As long as u r logged in, the background changes to what ever you want. Once you log out, Google comes out of its cocoon and sucks a bag of dicks.
    New browsers are recording all the network info, macid, your internet subscriber name, zip code, time of logging on, time of internet usage, websites visited etc. Guess its a requirement from the government.
