I have used google for many years and I liked it very much.
This morning google came up with a background picture (ugly!).
I really don't wanted a background picture and there was a link to change the background .
But to change the background you have to become a registered user

I don't need that shit.

It is time to say good bye...


No, you're never too old to Yak'n'Roll if you're too young to die.

But thats a really weird background
I always tend to use blackle which is claimed to be energy saving but I dont know how


Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.

Not a bad thing if they start using awful pictures.

Try this URL:
http://www.google.com/?background_color_sucks


Looks like the background image is only temporary:

They can do what they want!
I am away from (big brother is watching you)google.
I never have signed in and don't want to do it now.
It's a cheap trick to get anonymous users to go and get registered because only then it is possible to change the background!

It was all rather ill-judged, wasn't it? Perhaps Marissa's having a bit of a mid-life crisis what with recently turning 35!
