@Gregor – I *hope* it will just be a matter of time before things get better once more. They dont like when the UX is poor, so you can bet they’re working hard on making things better.

Rgds to both

I haven’t had French or non-English results yet – but there’s time I guess!

My tweet was along the lines that Google should give up on geo-targeting until it can manage to do it properly. Perhaps it works in the states but it certainly doesn’t work well in the UK.

Now with wave and chrome OS and all sorts of shitty web apps they are trying to take over personal computing just to get more eyeballs & data to mine for their advertisers
