Richard Jones' Log: Google's latest toys

Thu, 11 May 2006

Google really does make the best toys, don't they? First there was Google Maps Virtual Tourism, and now comparing popularity of random stuff...

There's some interesting trends in there like blogs vs. newspapers.

Some other obvious stuff like (don't forget to account for American English) Seasons really are ... seasonal

Red and blue continue to fight it out though red does seem to be more of a media whore, regardless of what some media outlets might say.

Though what do we really want?

We want game consoles, that's what!

Some of the comparisons are like apples to oranges, really...

Finally, I leave you with this (if nothing else, it proves that the English are bigger potty-mouths than us Aussies :)

(some of these searches inspired by the fine folk at metafilter)
