Google in St George Snub Outrage
Nice article in The Register where they muse on why Google avoided a splash to commemorate St Georges Day. This one was not, as you might expect, written by Orlowski...
They point out that The Register's web site has a tradition of celebrating the national days of those countries where they have either a substantial readership or from which we hope to extract the most advertising revenue. Google has celebrated World Water Day, 22nd March in case you missed it, St Patricks Day, St David's Day (all duely noted by the respective Nationalists at ThreadWatch), but not St George on April 23rd. Sinister, eh?
Accordingly, we demand a public apology and commemoration of one of the following by way of recompense: Battle of Britain Day (15 September); Trafalgar Day (21 October); The Day England Won the World Cup Day (30 July).
And if we don't get satisfaction in the matter, then by the Lord Harry we'll use another search engine to track down Paris Hilton's topless mobe snaps. Consider the gauntlet duly thrown down.
Google PR goes pear shaped again.
