  1. Looks Like We’re Getting Nothing Done Today: You Can Play Breakout in Google Image Search

    If you have a few minutes to kill, might we suggest typing "Atari Breakout" into Google Image Search? It will return images of the classic game, but after a few seconds those images will change into blocks, and your computer will beep and boop at you as the screen is transformed into the Atari classic Breakout. Google doesn't want anyone getting any work done today.

  2. Thanks to Google, the Internet’s Suddenly Not Quite as Much About Porn

    Google has added a new filter to their image search to make it harder to find porn, thus defeating the purpose of Google image search and the Internet as a whole. They insist this isn't a censorship measure, but rather a move to make sure users find "exactly what they're looking for." Are people using Google image search for something other than porn? Huh, I'll be damned.

  3. If You Google Image Search “Dying Grandparents,” You’ll Mostly Get Pictures of Christina Aguilera

    One of the fascinating things about Google's search algorithm is the way it associates certain words with images. For example, if you Google Image Search "completely wrong," you're going to end up with a bunch of Mitt Romney pictures. These tend to be associated thanks to large publications using certain words in their headlines that have certain images attached to them. It can make for some interesting results if folks didn't get the memo. Another particularly amusing example has just cropped up: If you Google Image Search "dying grandparents," the search engine returns a whole mess of Christina Aguilera pictures.

    In case you didn't already know, people were "completely wrong" about presidential candidate Mitt Romney's relatively recent 47% gaffe. This is the mantra that Romney's campaign pushed after the secret recording made headlines and stirred the political pundits on both sides into a frenzy [Romney's apology for the debacle uses the phrase to suggest that he, perhaps, was out of line]. Unfortunately, it appears that this has also had an unintended side effect. Using Google Image Search for the phrase "completely wrong" mostly brings up photos of Mitt Romney.

  5. The New Google Images Is Here

    At a press conference in San Francisco today, Google has introduced the world to its new image search redesign. The new Google Images -- which hasn't yet been widely rolled out as of this post, although it should manifest itself for all soon enough -- boasts as its greatest improvement the so-called "infinite scroll," which means that new images instantly load as users scroll down without the need for a page reload, allowing for as many as 1,000 images per page. Text no longer appears unless you click on an image on the scroll, in which case the image zooms and its metadata becomes visible.

    As many have pointed out, the new Google images looks sorta like Bing:
