Those poor bastards had to use Bing.

Man, you gotta be kidding me.. I'm in Mississippi. Chrome quit working that day, even after reinstalling cleanly every possible way. The portable version didn't work either. Every other browser worked. Every tech trick of mine in the book didn't help. I gave up and wiped my OS. No big deal since I have a pretty lean work PC, and my virtual machines and data are on a secondary RAID volume. Win8 Pro from a USB 3.0 flash drive to a SSD takes like 2 minutes to install.

Oh well. I guess a clean OS never hurts! ;)

I don't think that I'd mind so much if Google were to vanish. I believe that I could survive without them.

It would be inconvenient for my Android phone, however.

I'm in Atlanta and noticed it immediately. Sites that use google fonts took a while to load and looked strange (guess after a timeout they fell back to default fonts).

I also saw a person that acted as if he was blind... he was wearing Google Glasses :)

I'm can imagine the same reaction as in The Truman Show, when it goes offline and everyone acts as though NYC disappeared in a fireball.

Too many hits at once for "Impeach Obama" :)

I think some of it might have been related to them hating the overturn of the DOMA as well. :)
