It's a an ideal that Google has perfected over the years, but it's not something that will work for most other organizations. Executives trying to replicate Google's approach could even create major problems among their workforces."

  • u have the money for this
    but seriously, scaled for their money, is google actually creative ?
    sure they spend huge bucks on throwaway demo projects, anyone can do that if they have the money

    me personally, I think the user interface at sucks, and i bet if it weren't google, most slashdotters would agree with me

      the reason why google became popular was because while all the other search engine home pages were full of all sorts of shit which slowed down the page load, google had a simple logo, text box and search button in the center of the screen... and their results pages also weren't bloated with shit

      if it works, don't fuck with it... but then maybe their tinkering since is the cause of your anguish?

      i personally think google image search has gone downhill
