    I just got a notice from Google that they will no longer be allowing Guns, Knives, and ammunition on there shopping feeds. Seems kind of stupid to limit the listing of one of the only industries that is really growing in a down market.

    Anyone else think this is dumb?

    If you want i started a discussion on google + products page. Please feel free to come let them know how you feel about it. It really doesnt make sense to me to not allow comparison shopping online in one location.

    Google searches should not be affected. But now you will only get to see who pays the most for SEO work. so the prices will be higher to account for this rather than letting the consumer see every ones prices side by side.

    What do you expect from a company that renames their Google Market to Google Play. . . . . And thinks that's an improvement. . . .

    Google (customized page with local info) has been my home page for probably at least 8, possibly 9 years now. Obviously snooping on my search, shopping and online purchase habits has not taught them much.

    Based on search redux for my area of interest and focus on past time (drive in movies) rather than historical significance of D-Day is enough for me to find another home page. Apple is dropping their mapping from iPhone front page and I am dropping them from my home page.

    The shopping filter bugs me, but the funny google logo thing doesn't. They're always funny or celebratory. A somber logo would be pretty uncharacteristic from the other ones I have seen.

    Plastering D-day on a virtual billboard normally reserved for things to be celebrated seems wrong to me.

    Dumb!

    This confused the heck out of me when I went to download a new app!

    They've done google doodles to honor the dead many times, and the liberation of several nations looks to be celebrated looking at their history. Maybe this is different. Seems like a profound day to me.

    Don't know, maybe they have and I just haven't seen (remember) it.
