Google Profiles

Amusingly, Yahoo seem to have gotten into the SERPS for the phrase “Google Profiles”, due to Google’s sometimes arrogant efforts to predict what we, the uers, might be thinking.

Google has an annoying habit of assuming that you mean something you don’t when you type in something even mildly unexpected. So you’ve gotta laugh when they get Hoisted with their own petard. (That means “blown up by your own bomb, ironically.) Take this example of searching for “Google Profiles”. They think you want Yahoo’s profiles!

And I laughed and laughed. Serves you right Google for thinking “Receptional”  is something to do with office answering phones.
