Outrage Bus- Queue here for Google

#1
OK I don't often hop on the 'Bus Of Disenchantment', but I am definitely at
Anger State Mildly Miffed this afternoon.

OK, here is the situation, Google do special home pages to commemorate significant events in the past.

Now as most of us are aware there is a certain celebration(?) going on today that affected most of the Western World a few years ago, and Google agrees that there was. However their idea of what should be remembered on the 6th June is very different from mine.

I pulled up the Google Homepage to see in what way they had decided to honour the 65th Anniversary of D-Day, and I found the below.

Was it a Cuneo print of Shermans in action??

Was it fuck, Google in their wisdom have remembered:


The 25th Anniversary of Tetris


Tetris???? What the Fuck????

Microsoft appear to have got it right - Bing is showing one of the D-Day beaches. As you move your cursor across the screen links to searches about D-Day show up.

Your link shows 2 whales.
And behind them is Sword Beach :)

You have probably been redirected to bing.co.uk which does show two whales. If you change your country (top RHS of the webpage) to the United States you will get this

Oh FFS, I though that the details of the "Whale Force" were under a 99 year embargo.

Interestingly, if you change the country version to anything except United States (English) you'll get the whales. Even the US (Spanish) version shows the whales. Are we the only ones who care about it being D-Day 65 years on? Rant out!

Hardly one for the outrage bus. They picked an event that would make an interesting logo and went with it.

It's not as though they don't include forces events as well. Here are some of the logos they've used in the last couple of years:
