As you may or may not know I hate Google for so many reasons, but the main one apart from them pushing their noses into your business is the fact that the ‘make’ me have Google in the Czech language when I log on to Google.com.
Now that is all well and good if you are Czech! I am sure Czech is a fine language and just as good as any other human language although it does seem to be a little over endowed with odd shapes that sprout out of some of the letters in strange places.
Unfortunately I don’t speak Czech and so I expect when I type in Google.com to my web browser to get Google.com in English or something quite close like American which is as close as you can get to English these days although American is spelt badly.
It is a shame then that Google.com is automatically routed via my browser to the Czech language site Google.cz because my IP address is Czech. Even when I block the web address Google.cz in my browser’s privacy settings I still get ***king Google.cz and have to manually alter the mistake.
It’s not exactly freedom of expression because Google.cz blocks my desire to visit Google.com to say nothing about freedom of speech – I am sure that they are ripping up some sort of constitutional right here and so I need a clever, devious and not very scrouplous lawyer to sue them for damages because constantly having to type in Google.com after I have logged on to Google.com and got Google.cz is driving this cat bonkers oh and of course my usual no win no fee lawyer is apparently indisposed for 10 years conducting Penal research from the other side of the bars if you know what I mean!
Having said all of that I do like it when Google makes a balls up and I hope you enjoy this one, it is a cracker.
The first picture below is the Google.cz homepage and has some dreadful illustration on it, the significance of it, of course, is totally above my head – but hell after all I am just a Cat so what do you expect.
