Ungoogle

I was searching for a pals Flickr account having conveniently forgotten to bookmark it when she gave it to me over gchat. Faced with the prospect of quiz questions on the same by her in exactly one hour when she logs in from the US, I tried to search for her album using her name in the Flickr search tool.

The result was interesting. (see text in the red 'rectangle')


Face it Yahoo, you can never do a Google.

p.s. Friends account was not on Flickr. So I got some tarty comments about having no time to go through her neighbors puppies mundan ceremony. Apparently he had a skin problem and had to be shaved.

Friend is right! I am a bad bad girl who does not deserve a pal like her! *sniff*

This is blog abuse so you may well delete the comment but I couldn't resist a hat tip to 'All guys calling Tiger Woods a loser, are wannabe/failed Casanovas in moralist clothing! :p'

Lol'ing at the blog and the Tiger Woods observation (thanks karthik)! :-))

Karthik: lol! That is a cool nick for Yahoo, though I think Yahoo News is really good. And no such thing as blog abuse on the comment on my Tweet. I am fed up of guys treading the moral ground to satiate their jealousy! :p

Merill: Thanks girl! :)

ROFL..!!
On a word document (at least till few months back), if you type "Obama", it corrects you saying "hello.. it is OSAMA". However I guess Microsoft was summoned to the White House to make necessary edits after which they sorted it out! :)
