Top 10 Google Myths Debunked

I came across this in one of the blogs today. Google Myths impact everyone – they are becoming urban legends.

So Ionut Alex. Chitu, a student from Romania, gave us replies to the top ten myths.

The one that is given the most attention is the conspiracy theory of Google and their use of your information (3 of the 10). The most interesting and self-revealing:

8. Google is the best search engine that will ever be built.

Google is far from a search engine that “understands exactly what you mean and gives you back exactly what you want”. But its goal is to reach that state.

The tenth myth was about Google’s control of the world, the answer was: Those who control information, control the world. Hopefully Google will be a benevolent dictator.

An entertaining read.
