It's official: Google thinks you're a moron....

I always try to give Google the benefit of the doubt but this is app seems a little ridiculous.





So, because the average American "smart"phone user is too busy or too dumb to type the name of a book into a search engine or incapable of reading the artist name on a piece of art in a gallery, we get google goggles. Take a picture and google can sell you... I mean tell you more about a product. Like where to buy more of them or how to earn $272/day from your home computer :) Google feels like their losing their mojo....
Since, I'm working on a google theme tonight, how about a little look at Google trends for two search terms: the blue line represents searches for "dollar store" and the red line represents searches for "pawn shops". Both lines have broken past previous peaks seen last year before the holidays. Note the fairly sizable uptick in the past couple of weeks. Everything is rosy, pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.....

Cheers!
