New bookmarklet turns Google’s unofficial motto against itself
“Don’t Be Evil” tool cuts back on Google’s self-promotion: Remember Google’s new social search feature? It features results from your friends — and Google+ accounts — before other results, even if the other social sources are more popular than the Google+ account. The new “Don’t Be Evil” extension “looks at the three places where Google only shows Google+ results and then automatically googles Google to see if Google finds a result more relevant than Google+,” according to Focus On the User. Would you install this? source

Google, I love you dearly, but you really do need to stop the obnoxious Google+ self-promotion. Face the fact that it’s not as popular as you’d like and move on. That, or give it a major overhaul to attract more users. But don’t push it on us.
I’ll be using this extension.

"We’ll get to the longer answer, but the short answer is that Google isn’t looking for the smartest, or even the most technically capable, candidates. Google is looking for the candidates who will best fit Google."

Very simple. Courtesy of GHacks, link to Lifehacker.

It’s much cleaner and user-friendly, in my opinion. Hopefully they stick with it.

Anyone else keeping up to date on the Google Nexus challenges?

Holy shit. I just found a reddit thread that went through the solution for their third challenge, and wow. Google doesn’t mess around. That was a triple or quadruple-tiered puzzle right there.

Go to Google and search “Do a barrel roll”
Google engineer doesn’t hold back, lays into Google for it’s failure to understand how to create Google+

iheartchaos:

Shortly after Google+ went public, its user base skyrocketed literally overnight and then almost just as quickly plummeted back to number just above when it was launched. What happened?
