Rotten Code it can always work better - but at least it should work
So a few days ago I was ranting about how Google might not be such a great company to invest in if their management is as bad as I think it might be. And now, we have more possible proof that Google is not exactly Fortune 500 material.

Hey, I love tech companies, but just why is Google so lauded? Their search results are horrible, the app looks like something college kids threw together over a weekend. What really baffles me is why no one else has really improved on the search engine either. Before some open source evangelist starts railing about how I should shut and build one myself, I'd like to point out that dozens of companies do just that every year, and yet none off them seem to have any better ideas. Since I spend my time writing other, more productive software, I would think I could leave it to such a crowded field to produce one decent offering.

Google's ability to find the most pertinent pages for a given search is exactly the reason I started using it when it first came out. While other search engines have probably caught up to Google (or at least closed the gap), I continue to use Google because its pages are so simple: it loads much faster that way, and is less annoying. Do you hate everything that's popular, or just things that you consider overrated?
