I got this from Twitchy, but, you can check it out yourselves.  How did the search giants commemorate the US’ Memorial Day?

    Also, copying a link in Bing, gives you the link. Copying a link in Google, gives you a Google link.

    And what was Google’s answer to Easter?

    Google looks like it’s afraid to upset any foreigners with a show of US patriotism.
    At least Microsoft’s Bing doesn’t mind showing which country it is from.

    I have to stand up for Google.

    Bing I understand. I avoid Bing even though I use MS stuff. I use MS stuff because I have to, mostly. Google wants to help the world, mostly. I give them credit for lots of things even though they are not always not evil. Would they be required to have huge spreads for ANZAC Day? For Nov 11? Veteran’s Day and Remembrance Day are different for different countries. Only one human in twenty lives in the US.

    But: lest we forget. Aussies have fought side by side with Americans since 1917 in the mud and the blood and the beer.

    Sorry guys, I may empathise with the US but I live in Oz.

      I would think it appropriate for Google to commemorate ANZAC day, but as you said, the Aussies and Americans have been side by side for a century. I try to raise a glass to our friends every ANZAC day.

    • suyts says:

      But, I do understand what you’re saying.

      How is supporting and honoring memorial day, by a US company, as a way of honoring the many noble sacrafices of the US service man, dissing anybody else. Anyone that would fault google if they honored memorial day, I do not care about upsetting.

      • Bruce says:

        But Google did honor Memorial Day. You saw the screenshot.

        The flavour I get from my US friends is they didn’t honor it enough.

        If I was Google and had business in Turkey I might just honour ANZAC Day too, but I would want to be subtle there too. Not all Turks regard Aussies as brothers in arms, although many do since Kemal Ataturk commanded the defending corps (very successfully).

        Rubbing their noses in it as Bing has done may not be helpful to those with less than warm views of your country. Which includes many Aussies (not me) and Europeans and etc. It would push many more to Chrome, as perhaps I should. Except I trust Google about as much as I trust Microsoft…

      Mr Bruce, I think you are being too kind to google.

      It is more simple than what you state.

      Leftist / Progressives do not honor Patriotism …. they honor Unions.

      • Bruce says:

        How do you honour patriotism of multiple incompatible countries while offering an international service. Even peacefully they are still rivals. Look at the French. Are they friends of the US? Hardly.

        C’mon guys, where’s your empathy?

        I underline that I honor US servicemen who have served. I like the US (except LA, you can keep that place). Many have served in alliance with Aussie servicemen and women. A Marine gunnery sergeant is an MP for our state of Queensland for example.

        I had a vacation student working for me once couple decades ago. It was very amusing since for weeks she was anticipating a visit of a pair of USN ships to Newcastle. She was that kind of girl.

          There is a way to feed images based upon originating IP addresses – which are country specific. Now for those who like to use spoofing servers that would not matter. But then Google does not care about them in any event.

    • philjourdan says:

      To each his own. However, like the gingerbreadman, you are going to find Google is the fox, not the altruistic helper.

      Check out Capt Starkers.

    Google and Microsoft are both patriots. Via the patriot act they allow all Obama agencies access to all data of all customers.
