Googling for Appliances

Paul Kedrosky (via John Gruber):

Pages and pages of Google results that are just, for practical purposes, advertisements in the loose guise of articles, original or re-purposed. It hearkens back to the dark days of 1999, before Google arrived, when search had become largely useless, with results completely overwhelmed by spam and info-clutter.

It’s interesting how Google is dynamite in many areas but almost useless in others. Search is a hard problem.
