Google.... What are you doing, my friend.

This is what happens when the underdogs start winning...

They do what the big boys can't

google has made a toolbar that implements its own links on existing pages. read the story above... I don't want to explain.

you know, i guess I don't really mind too much. The only problem I see is them getting payed for advertising from sites that aren't theirs. I guess I really don't mind if they want to link to relevent material. heck, I think it is a grand idea. I wish i could have an option were certain words were unlined a special way and it would link to wikipedia, like trillian does. That'd be swell.

But if you don't want the google toolbar to interfer with your site. It is easy enough to fix.

It's gona get to the point where everything we see in this world has an RFID that alerts our mobile device and triggers a search for compainion products or information. So I guess this is where it starts.
I do what I can.
