    That video makes me angry because he keeps saying that you can’t search for any of those things when really, you can search for all of them and the results aren’t censored at all. You just don’t get the words autofilled for you as you type. But if you’re an adult (as he keeps repeating), you should know how to type in what you want and not have to rely on suggestions anyway.

    You’re right – I love how he’s being purposefully oblivious to the text below the search box that says “Press enter to search” for each of those words. Like how the search engines have always worked prior to Instant.

    Except that the video is prefaced with a title that says “Censorship on Google Instant”

    I didn’t agree with Max’s piece. I just included it because I’ve seen other people take this angle, and it was a way to illustrate that Google comes under fire in both directions. But I’ve added a note about this, too.

    If you really want to see some interesting results, just do a google search for “gaping”. If you have blended results running you will get the shock immediately, if you dont have blended results, you will have to click the images link. Suprise!!!

    Because of this non family friendly behavior of the search giant, and it not getting any better any tie soon, I created http://www.mymunka.com a family friendly search engine. It simply shows Google safe search results through adsense for search. Basically automatically blocking the “porn” content and “bad” sites from your kids for you. It is simple and straigt forward, the way Google used to be. You can also set it as your home page for added security for your youngsters.
