LOL walkman...that's pretty bad. I'm used to the 'Map' being my sworn enemy but could see how those other bonus google elements like news really create problems as well.
Thing that really bugs me is websites getting to double/triple dip in the listings... I find it hilarious that Cutts made a big point about how google 2011 was so much better than google 2000 primarily because it got rid of double dipping page...then they make a huge comeback this year.
To Sgt_Kickaxe...I don't see another startup company competing with google for the simple matter that the patent office as been giving out search engine patents so willy-nilly to both bing and google that I don't know if there are any decent algorithms left not owned by either of these corporations that would allow for a competition search engine. To create an analogy, I suspect the situation is so bad that if search engines were cars, I don't think a startup could create a roadworthy car because of all these patents (or at least without paying google/bing a pretty dime).
