  • Ian Dalziel,

    King Dick's largesse...

    But does it make up for him being such a dick?

    but it's only S-capist literature...

  • giovanni tiso,

    Somebody must have told them that the Bing image search was better. So they went ahead and copied it. Sigh.

    It does, and it loads 2700 images at once, while not telling you where any of them are from unless you hover over them individually. As you say, rubbish!

  • Jake Pollock,

    Google has tweeted an unqualified denial of the NYT article. I've spent a good part of my morning reading various articles on this, and between The Guardian, cnet and Fortune it's pretty difficult to get an idea of what's going on.

    In terms of the google images search, the best I can say is that it's been like that for a few weeks in the US and you kind of get used to it, eventually.

  • Sacha,

    I'd love to know what Google is denying, given it seems clear there have been meetings for some time and a process designed to "compromise" on net neutrality (kind of like being partly pregnant, you'd think).

    However, Twitter is protecting me from distraction by fail-whaling so I can't even read the 140-char denial. Perhaps paste it here if anyone else can?

  • Jake Pollock,

    RT @googlepubpolicy: @NYTimes is wrong. We've not had any convos with VZN about paying for carriage of our traffic. We remain committed [to an open internet].

    That last bit is a paraphrase 'cause it went over the character limit when I retweeted it.

    Which leaves open the version that I linked to on Fortune, which says that Google is making a deal that would privilege classes of data, not sources i.e. voice over video.

    Which makes it classic Quality of Service, rather than a way of making people pay for faster (or not-slower) access to particular sites.
