Google thinks you are stupid.
Surely you must have mispelled, because nobody searches for apples, but everybody wants an Apple.
The same if you are a foreigner and want to search on english. Surely you must have mispelled a word in your language, because come on - nobody speks any foreign languages. What are the chances you really wanted to search for an english word when you have a french IP.
Ok you want to go to google.com for english words? You are really serious about this aren't you? But your IP is still french, no way you speak english, lets redirect you to google.fr again.
You typed in three words. No way you really want a document that contains all those three words. Let's simply omit one of them and do a little wordstemming on those other two. We are Google, we know better than you what you are looking for.
+ and "" are your friends these days.
