Google at 20
To this day, the Google homepage remains clean and sparse, offering nothing more than a logo, search field, and two buttons.
The author of this piece has very very obviously not actually looked at the Google homepage in years.

What with this junk and Craig Murray’s latest post The Guardian is seriously going wrong.

I’ll block what the hell I want – it’s my connection, not yours.
I’ll be polite – get lost.
The 500 million arrived.
Now I’ve got to decide what to do with it..
Amazon customer since 2005.

Yet you – yes YOU – you reap the rewards so you get the fucking blame – decide to randomly delete tracks from my disabled wife’s playlists. I have to recreate.
Top tip Jeff – when you can’t fucking move at all shit matters.
And when I try to create them again? Alexa says NO.
Alexa, play Don’t You Want Me by the Human League
OK… track plays
Alexa what is playing?
I get told full information
Alexa add this to my playlist
“I do not know what is playing”
FUCK YOU ALEXA
FUCK YOU BEZOS
Get a fucking grip and don’t fuck with people.
Not a hard request.
I thought my phone was set to be silent from 10pm – 6am unless I had starred the contact. There are exactly 3 such stars – my girls and my dad. That’s it.
1am, fast asleep, the phone rings. Jarred from sleep, answer and get some slithering, scabby knuckled, low foreheaded, drooling fuckwit who wants to know about my “accident”.
I don’t think I’ve said “Fuck Off” with such venom in a long long time.

BBC: “Geraint Thomas became Britain’s third winner of the Tour de France when he crossed the finish line in Paris.”
Technically correct? Yes?
Being really shitty correct? Hell Yes.
Credit him and his nation and his roots correctly.
Geraint Thomas is the FIRST WELSHMAN TO WIN THE TOUR.
Britain did not do this.
Strange post here presenting what they probably think is vaguely original: The worst truism in information security
“Attackers just need one vulnerability, defenders need to be perfect”
First time I saw something like this? 1984. That’s 34 years ago.
BBC – IRA bombs Brighton Hotel
The IRA has issued a statement claiming it had placed a 100lb bomb in the hotel.
The statement read: “Today we were unlucky, but remember, we only have to be lucky once; you will have to be lucky always. Give Ireland peace and there will be no war.”
I bet that type of statement is older than the hills.
Note – I’m not picking on that post or the author. He has valid points. What I am saying is this: Nothing is new.
