Excuse this if its been brought up before, but ugh Google quit it.
I have bing for my home page but use Google from the Firefox search toolbar in the upper right corner of the browser for more in depth specific searches.
Today I am trying to find the number of Aircel subscribers. Google auto corrected my search from: aircel mobile subscribers to bharti airtel mobile subscribers. It did this in the submit and didn't bother showing the "Did you mean YOUR ORIGINAL SEARCH?" link either.
Come on G, Airtel might be the bigger company but Aircel is no slouch either. I knew exactly what I was searching for and it was a terriblly presumptive act for you to assume that your borg knew better.
I was keeping G around because it does better on some types of searches, but if they are going to intercept my queries and change them on me then that defeats the whole purpose. Stop infantilizing your users while you still have some.
