Why didn't Google mark Memorial Day the way it marks every other event on its doodle page.
Posted by George.nieves on 05/31/2013
On Memorial Day I was shocked that Google didn't commemorate this day to honor those that gave their lives for this country. They routinely honor many lesser events, like independence of Jordan or Cinco de Mayo which pale in comparison for the patriotic and historical significance of Memorial Day.

It seems they have their own agenda.

They had a flag with yellow ribbon in front of the flag.

Very good point and observation. This is what you get when you have a company full of young kids running the place. I doubt you will find even a few that went into the service. Much less have any clue or value for what America is and what our service personnel have done for their sorry butts.

Google is loaded with kids on H1-B Visa's from India, China and other far off lands. They want America to fail (right after they can milk us for every dime they can get). I believe the girl that does the doodles is of Asian or Indian descent. I saw a special on the doodles, a Dennis Hwang was put in charge. I am surprised he has not posted the China national flag yet celebrating some obscure holiday in China.

Having served you might notice this kind of crap chaffs my hide no end!

My memory is that Google did observe the holiday, but I could be wrong.

It shocks me that people notice this stuff in the first place. I personally find changing the pages annoying. I just want to surf for stuff I am looking for. Everyone is different.

They did do a doodle for armed forces day, just thought I'd point that out.
Posted by Ben There on 2013-06-01:
Google did have a yellow ribbon for memorial day, which is I think a much more tasteful way of showing remembrance instead of a fancy moving doodle, but that is just my opinion. Maybe next year they can have an eagle shooting stars out of its eyes while grasping a waving American flag in its tallins.

Google is used worldwide.not just in America. >Old Timer< Lighten up there guy. America is a very important country but there are other countries. The fascinating part is that this complaint is foundless because Google did in fact have a very respectful "doodle" to commemorate Memorial Day.

No cooperation
Posted by Joan.foster020 on 11/05/2012
I have tried repeatedly to change my password for one of my Google accounts. When I change my password for this particular account, it changes my password for one of my other accounts. It is frustrating since I was using tha e-mail address for a work-online job I was doing. It prevented me from being able to sign in to the account or talk to management of the company since they have my e-mail address that I was using to work for them. THEREFORE, NO JOB--THANKS GOOGLE

Unauthorized Charges on My Credit Card
Posted by Dtmbul5 on 08/03/2012
I check my credit card and found 4 charges from YouTubeGoogle.com/chcaus, I called the Corporate headquarters for Google and they sent me to a web site that doesn't exist. I tried to put in a complaint in several areas of Google but nothing helpped.

Now I have to stop my credit card and lose over $40.00 dollars with at this point no getting it returned to me.

That sounds like you have been scammed by a company using Google's name - youtubegoogle.com is not a Google site, even though it is using the name of two Google-owned companies. Contact your credit card company and dispute the charges - you should be able to recover your money that way.

I don't understand why you can't dispute these charges with your credit card company.

I'm not sure this has anything to do with Google - it sounds like it may be scam using their name.
Posted by bhskittykatt on 2012-08-06:
It's not Google. It's a scam site. Dispute through your credit card company. They should be able to get your money back if it's within 60 days, iirc.

I use Google all the time and find what I want almost all of the time after my first or second search. That said, I know some people like Bing or Yahoo better... Have you tried those search engines?
Posted by jktshff1 on 2012-07-21:
I've used google for many years without problems
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2012-07-21:
You might want to re-word what you're searching for. I use all kinds of searches and found if I don't get the results I'm looking for, sometimes it just takes re-wording the search.
Posted by MRM on 2012-07-21:
DB is right on point, re-word what you are searching for. And that is immature when the OP said he dislike the people that came up with the idea.
Posted by trmn8r on 2012-07-21:
Back in the early 90's I worked at an academic institution, and the librarian was a huge advocate for Google, at a time when I thought Yahoo! was the bee's knees.

Google ended up kicking Yahoo!'s butt, and in the last week that person from Google jumped ship and is going to be the CEO of Yahoo!, possibly to see if they can compete with Google again.

I think you just aren't using it to its full potential. The few times I have used Google (I'm a stick in the mud), I got great results.
Posted by ok4now on 2012-07-22:
Google for good reason is the big dog on the block. They are the premier search engine. As DB correctly pointed out sometimes you have to re-word it. Here's an example. If you're searching a name put "quotation" marks around it. This will narrow the search and probably give you what you're looking for.
Posted by DELL Hell on 2012-07-22:
If you put your request in quotes you will get back much tighter results. ie: "Google", instead of Google.
Posted by trmn8r on 2012-07-22:
It was the early 2000's, not the early 1990's, that I worked with a librarian who saw the superiority of Google over its competition. Her other choice was Webcrawler - I don't think she even stooped to using Yahoo!.

Thanks to a rude comment posted on another website by someone who appears to have to comment on everything that happens here, I was able to see I had made an error.
Posted by DebtorBasher on 2012-07-22:
I never even think about Yahoo searches, but when I type in my search on Google, the search word(s) automatically fill in on Yahoo in my toolbar...I just figured it searched both at the same time.

8er! 8er! I used to be a librarian in high-school!
Who wanted to be a cheerleader anyway? Not me!

I want to sue Google for a fictitious ad and the two people handling my add have stopped answering their phone to me. I am very serious about my four hundred $ I have spent and am not satisfied. I made it clear to them and now when I call I can't get them. I am going to try by email to contact them Google, so far I have been unsuccessful. I have an attorney and he advised me to write first.

Improper Regard for Memorial Day
Posted by Susiem on 05/28/2012
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIFORNIA -- Google's sign on page, where the word Google is often modified and morphed into letters that relate somehow to a particular holiday or celebration, is where my complaint is. I love the feature; however, when I signed on today, MEMORIAL DAY 2012, there was a tiny, tiny United States flag w/ a yellow ribbon across the front of it. The flag was not even the size of one of the Google letters !!

I took this as a blatant insult, as a proud American. Clearly, this was an intentional affront to our country, where soldiers die daily for the right of some jerk to make a political statement in this way. Yet, on the 675th birthday of some man, usually, who is hardly known is an elaborate enhancement of the word Google. Please remind the person who does this artwork, is, first and foremost, in the United States of America and whose paycheck is provided by that company. My hunch is that the individual doing the work is not an American and likely not even a citizen.

Well, at least they acknowledged the holiday.
Posted by MM on 2012-05-28:
I really don't think the main purpose of "Google Doodles" (That's what they're called) is to celebrate specific holidays every year. They seem to be something you click on to get more information about a topic or person you may not have heard of before. They also appear not to like reusing the same Doodles over. So there may have been an elaborate Doodle another year but they did not have an original design to use this year.

The head designer of the Doodles is named Dennis Hwang, and he has been working for Google's head office for over 12 years.
Posted by copper_works_ on 2012-05-28:
You think that is insulting? Go to Sears facebook, it isn't Memorial Day, it is "We hope you’re stocked up on ketchup, Happy National Burger Day!" Now that is insulting!
Posted by trmn8r on 2012-05-28:
I don't find anything insulting on the internet. Just look around - there's trash everywhere.

That yellow ribbon acknowledges our troops who are abroad fighting for us and who won't be here to kick back with beer and burgers today, doesn't it? I kind of like that, personally.
Posted by Ben There on 2012-05-28:
I am more insulted by all the sites that turn this day into a sales event. Google is showing respect in a refined classy way in my opinion. Remembering our troops does not require an elaborate doodle that would distract from the true meaning... Just my opinion though.
Posted by FoDaddy19 on 2012-05-28:
I don't have a problem with it. They are simply going with a "Less is more" approach. IMHO the OP is overreacting.
Posted by tnchuck100 on 2012-05-28:
Personally I liked the simple Memorial Day acknowledgement Google did. Not at all a "look at me" approach that many commercial entities do.
Posted by MM on 2012-05-28:
Also, I just wanted to add that they appear to make a custom Doodle for the 4th of July every year.

You can see an archived list here: http://www.google.com/doodles/finder/2012/All doodles

Posted by DebtorBasher on 2012-05-28:
It's the meaning, not the size.
Size doesn't matter. But, I do understand what you're saying.
Posted by Foster on 2012-05-30:
Let's see without our soldiers there would be no google, no democracy and no free enterprise. As brilliant as the minds are at Google, they could do something a bit more brilliant than they decided to do. It seems to me the minority has the say these days over the majority.

Google Obtaining Customer Information With Out Permission
Posted by Grouperss214 on 05/01/2012
I wish to remove Google as my search engine. Reason being is that Google has completed research on customers with out their knowledge or permission. I resent this secret gathering of information and no longer wish to be associated with Google.

This request is impossible to accomplish by contacting Google on line. This conduct is what one would expect from a subversive organization.

If you are using firefox you can click the small google icon in the upper right corner of your browser and either choose another search engine or add one such as bing.com. Or you could set bing.com as your homepage (or any other search engine). If you are using Internet Explorer 9 you can click on tools and internet options and there is a setting on the first tab to control your search engines.
Posted by Suzy on 2012-05-01:
Simply don't use Google search engine for anything then they won't have any information to gather. Find another search engine and use it. I never use Google myself.

Do Not Call This Number!!!!
Posted by Magic1 on 04/04/2012
WILLCOX, ARIZONA -- We get phone calls DAILY AND SOMETIMES TWICE DAILY regarding getting listed at the top of Google listings. At the end of the recording, there is a prompt to press 2 or sometimes 9 to be taken off the call list. Upon pressing the required number, nothing happens. There is no response on the phone and we also do NOT get removed from the call list. Today I pressed 1 to see what this scam was all about. When a human answered, I requested to speak to a supervisor. The person then said that she was the manager. Oh, what luck, the "manager" is taking calls and can barely speak English.

After repeating my request to be removed from this list I was told that this number had never requested to be removed. Oh, what a surprise!

According to their terms of service you can put the music on your "devices" and listen to it. But apparently you have to use google's software to do so.
