Google plays another round of peeky-boo. One moment a feature is there, the next it is gone. But only for those nasty iPhone users which they are not allowed to illegally track no more. I still can't believe what got into the programmers at google when they exploited a loophole in the safari browser on iPhones to circumvent the privacy settings and plant an illegal cookie. But that is not my beef today. Nor is it that from Thursday tens of millions of users will become advertising cash cows thanks to google ignoring basic privacy etiquette.
No, what griefs me today is that Google goggles have been disabled for iPhone users.
What a great idea. What a great tool. And then it is gone? As I could not believe it, I tried to look at the web URL for goggles and I got a pretty message telling me that my phone was not supported. I guess from now on only cool android users will get the full benefit of searching based on imagery.
And they did not even have the decency to update their iPhone app on the app store to reflect the latest "policy".
