Remember when the reverse image search in Google was actually very good?


I doubt that. It took them years to fix the porn images that showed up just by typing in the word Pokemon with safe search enabled.

Was it? I can't recall it once giving me the result I needed.

Man, f*** Google and its s***ty interpretation of what I'm looking for.

I honestly find Google to be crap for nearly every possible use. It's pretty much completely unusable for everything other than reverse image look-ups for me.

As much as people make fun of Yahoo, I get better results for every single search I do there.


I left Yahoo because it wasn't giving me what I needed and I can't imagine going back to try it again. And some of my other preferred engines, like DuckDuckGo, have their own intrinsic issues (in DDG's case, the fact it doesn't save results -- its main selling point -- means that it can never build context for my search patterns, whereas Google or Yahoo would eventually get things right). That and I can't trust Yahoo after a decade of almost-annual massive data breaches.

Then there's stuff like Bing which basically just runs a Google search and pares down some of the results. As such, I imagine it's equally bad at understanding keyword context, plus... I don't have a lot of trust for Microsoft despite using the OS.

Google Lens and Translate via my phone camera is actually quite good. I've actually used Lens to accurately identify wildlife and plants on hikes and I've used Translate to translate instructions where in a Homer Simpsonesqe moment the English instructions were ruined.


I'm probably going to have to get both. I'm assuming they're free apps?

I would assume so. I have buttons for both built into my camera app, but I'm not sure if that's a standard Pie thing or if that's part of Oxygen OS on the OnePlus 5.

Oh come on, why wouldn't you trust a company whose motto is "Don't be evil." to hold your search history? >:)

Almost all the time I look up someone's avatar of some goofy weird anime character, google tells me it's some generic cartoon person.

I'm fine with Google (most of the time), it's the other two that I have an issue with.

That literally stopped being their motto about a decade ago, and they've gone pretty damned far down the road of villainy ever since.

I easily rank them as untrustworthy as Microsoft at this point, if not worse.

They changed the broadcast line up on Raw. I just put it on mute, and fast forwarded to get to the stuff I cared about. Which turned out to be very little. When it wasn't on mute I played Octopath Traveler, and pretended that it was a better product, the show, not the game. I did watch New Japan, and those matches were actually good. Commentary, not so much.

All Elite starts tonight, and I hope that it's good. I'm tempering expectations, but competition is good for the industry. Right???

I read that as, "I want a Pixar Phone, bit it's too expensive."

I was thinking. What the hell is a Pixar phone? I was like, "Is Disney in the phone business now?

I need more sleep.

I'm not sure I trust any major American tech company less than Microsoft when it comes to what the company is doing (as opposed to something like Yahoo where it's a competence issue)

A Pixar phone is one that comes to life when you aren't looking and does stuff with your other things that come to life when you aren't looking. Sometimes it's dirty stuff. Ironically, sleep is the one thing you don't want to do because that's when you're really not watching.
