New Comic Strip every Monday, Wednesday, & Friday.
Sometimes we need to remind ourselves of a simpler time before we had easy access to content via the internet. Back when men were ready to throw it on the line and make sure they were near a TV for the big game, because once it played that was it. …
I don’t know how I ever lived without a smart phone. Hell, in the grand scheme of things, it wasn’t that long ago that I didn’t have a cell phone at all. And a time when we didn’t use the term Google to refer to an internet search. I wonder, if Google hadn’t turned into such a powerhouse, if we might be calling it Yahooing.
Actually, we called it “looking it up on AltaVista”. It was technically better than Google (google returns based on popularity, I’m not sure what AltaVista returned [originally] based on) and it’s the basis for Yahoo’s search engine, but the Yahoo engineers have changed the criteria to return results based on maximum frustration.
I may be being unfair. For all I know all the big search providers are being hampered by government regulations and if they return useful information you go on a government watch list. (I don’t have any problem getting information about cute kittens. It’s technical information that the search engines keep hiding from me.)
HA! its true… we dont NEED to know anything any more. just google it!
I know. It’s somewhat sad really. I try to keep from using google unless I need it as a reference. There is still something to be said about actually knowing something.
