<<Google’s online word processor introduces a talking paper clip.>>
AAAHHHH make it go away!!!!

<<Google’s personalized homepage puts up a special logo for your birthday.>>
They could easily do this just ask for you DOB and change the logo on you account for that day, a personalised logo on the other hand....

<<you’re being dumped because of something you said in your blog 8 years ago.>>
Change that to 5 years and that may well already have happened somewhere.

No joke, my wife went to the doctor for her foot once and the specialist told her she could get more information on his diagnosis with Google. Specifically, he told her to "Go home and Google it".

My favorite:

"... you’re searching for yourself to discover new stuff."

Seriously though, I find the entry...

"... a Google ad is actually relevant."

...atypical. One of the strengths for me has been just how relevant Google's ads are. No, it's not perfect, but man, they are consistently close. And even if their accuracy was less, I commend them for being so unobtrusive....

my.yahoo.com usually greets me with "Hello Ian" but I do remember it greeting me with "Happy birthday Ian" on the right day, because I hadn't lied when registering. It made me smile.

Yea, a simple birthday-greeting in text-form would be very easy.

or a own greeting for each time of day.
"Good morning, Stefan"
"Good appetite, Stefan"
"Good evening, Stefan"
or puerility things like that. :p

You forgot one thing: Google doesn't know your birth date.

Is that the only thing they don't know?

yes, then they had to add one (optional) value to the sign up process... ;)

Concerning your first 'doctor tells you that according to Google, you should be alright' – this actually happened to us: Child was sick and had high temperatur, I checked if the symptoms are scarlatina via Google but we went of course to a hospital. The doctor examined our child and afterwards went to his PC, opened Google, entered scarlatina and read the result. Funny thing is, that I had the same search results before. It was scaring and funny at the same time ...

I'd like most of the list to happen.
I just trust google. But till now I don't receive google's greets in my birthday.
I am hoping that.
