Great Googly-Moogly

Life was so simple before the Google IPO.

Should I sell my house to buy more Google shares or is foregoing food and medical care enough?

Will I adhere to Google's tenet to "don't be evil," when I unload my Google shares on an even bigger idiot than I was when I bought my initial shares?

Should I be worried about Google brand extensions watering down their focus? There's already Froogle to find the lowest prices online. How about Poogle to find dog groomers? Or Shoogle to find the best running shoes?

With so many investment gurus insisting that I don't buy shares of Google, I wonder: should I buy even more shares of Google than I originally planned?

I predict that in the next decade we will have Google Appliances, with which we can enter questions, and get answers.

"Where is my girlfriend?"
"Dude, I could call up mappoint, but like, seriously, let's take a look at the google query for 'anger management cheating girlfriend' first? Okay? And seriously, don't do a Google Image Search. You are so not ready."

Have you read this today:

"When The Nation tried to place an ad headlined "Bush Lies" this spring, the search engine rejected the slogan. Google was enforcing an unwritten rule, often cited to advertisers by company representatives, that the search engine will not accept ads advocating against any individual, group or organization. In another case, this one in March, Google removed ads placed by Oceana, an environmental lobby working to end water pollution caused by cruise ships... One of the latest sites to fall victim to Google's advertising hatchet is the progressive website PERRspectives, which features political commentary and satire. Its ads were pulled in June; a Google representative told the owner that his site contains "unacceptable content"."

We tried to get Google to let us post ads on our blog, but we were denied because they found the content too offensive.


But yeah, Google kind of sucks. Of course, Thomas is getting Googley moola on one of his other sites. I'll let him elaborate if he wants.

You guys are totally punk rock. Or runk pock. But for a couple of white middle class guys, you're very anti-establishment.

Yeah, especially you Turner. All that pent up liberal rage. Very runk pock of you.

Except I think you're more Karen Carpenter that Syd Vicious.

Karen Carpenter was so PUNK ROCK! The funny thing is, Google is still running ads on our site and making moola. I guess they have the last laugh.

Yes, I'm generating Google ad cash from one of my other web sites... as of today, it has made $5.63 for the month of August! (They don't send a check until the revenue hits $100.)
Whoa, nelly.
What's worse, you can't solicit people to visit Google ads, or you'll get spanked.
