  3. It just popped up in: About the "My Boyfriend is":

    The first suggestion "My Boyfriend is Type B" is in a number of ways quite legitimate, can't quite say the same about the rest.

    Legitimate as in it is the title of a Korean movie apparently titled "B형 남자친구" or "B-hyeong namja chingu" (copied that bit from wikipedia

    A movie with a plot connected to the Japanese theory about Blood Types and Personality. Could give a lot more junk/information about that, but anyway.

  6. Dear Google,
    I've been using your services for some years now, and i feel it's finally time we met formally. My name is Missy. You know where I live already by my zip code preferences. I have unnaturally blonde hair. I like sea turtles, sea horses (you probably knew that from my searches, LOL),and sometimes vodka and wheat beer. Something you did not know about me is that I love you.

    Love you, thank you,
    missy o

  8. Dear Google,

    I've noticed quite a few people have declared their love for you (Platonic, of course). I'd like to add my anonymous voice to that clan. You have helped me in so many ways! Thanks for being free, and thanks for being you!

  9. I've frequently open google searches 'Dear Google, ' but only when other people are watching. This usage slightly harkens back to the days of Jeeves with the attempted vision of a more personable search engine. It almost always ruins the results and makes the query fuitless, but is good for a laugh.

  11. Dear Google, if you're so smart, can you tell websites that think I'm a guy who loves porn, that I'm a girl, and I'm really not into porn? It really bothers me that every time I go to download a new chick flick or the latest season of something or other on a certain download site, I am bomarded with images of naked chicks in the sidebars. If the internet was smart enough it would know I'm a girl and maybe start bombarding me with sexy, naked men in the sidebars. That would be a nice change, not reminding me everyday of the inequalities and messed up shit we still face as women.

    Thanks internet!

  12. Dear Google

    I have been using Gmail for some time and occasionally I check the spam box. Looking at all the garbage that has thankfully been filtered and prevented from entering my inbox makes me extremely grateful that you are doing such a good (really great) job of keeping some pretty disgusting and annoying things from ever having to cross my path, spoil my day or intrude on my life.

    It helps me feel the world is a much better place than what some of the spam would have me believe.

    THANK YOU GOOGLE ! < heart with smiley inside>

  13. Dear Google;

    Yes, as already stated ahead of me, I too would like to not have to come across porn in my searches and be reminded that there are some really gross 'preferences'(?) dragging the progress of humanity, society and culture into the gutter by perpetuating abuse and inequity in the world.

    We can do, and be, better, internet!

  14. Dear Google;

    Happy Birthday! I'm so glad you are 12 today! Hope you have a wonderful year and continue growing, keeping your youthful innocence, exuberance and desire to be and good, as you move into adolescence - a time always fraught with competing goals, challenges and the inevitable "zit", peer influences and clash of identities.

    Luv Aunty Rhonda

  16. Dear Google, your incognito window has no shortcut key for closing the window. This is inconvenient (Alt+F4) doesn't work.

  17. @Park Centre:

    Both Alt+F4 and Ctrl+W should work.

  20. Dear Google,

    I don't usually give a crap about the special Google search cover pages you do, however I wanted to tell you that I enjoyed the interactive Google (today's) for earth day. This one has touched my heart and put a smile on my face, and that's pretty good for someone who is always a grumpy pants.

    Keep up the good work!

  22. Dear Google, I like what you do with the homepage, switchin it up and all. But I just went to search for something and got distracted by your guitar "app" thingy. I like it but I would really appreciate it if you could move on to the next thing already. :D

  23. Dear Google

    Can I have my news feed such that I don't get any stories about homicides or car/bus/train/plane crashes. I know these things happen but I don't need the play by play. It's disgusting and sad and the global frequency of these stories is well beyond what local me needs. I want "tell me less features" as much as "tell me more" features. Please, give me an easy filter button. This shouldn't be hard. What the hell am I missing?
