Is Google Really Smart?
Consider This Real Story
Today I received an email from a long time internet marketer in which he shared some tips on how to take advantage of the new tabs in Google Gmail.
He also expressed his view that Google is smart. No doubt about some form of smartness Google has. After all they have close to 70% of search engine market. And they are into other things in which they do quite well.
Google can also be positively weird and it can be very ruthless.
But let’s stick to Google being smart subject and look at what happened to me a day and a half ago using Gmail.
I was logging into one of my Gmail accounts as usual and I was using Google Chrome on my own computer. I filled in my user name and password and pressed enter. Google said that the user name or password were incorrect. I used the correct ones but for some reason Google thought otherwise.
As I proceeded to communicate with it, of course not with any of their staff as they don’t talk to anyone, but communicating with their system, I was told that there was no such email with that kind of user name.
No matter what I did, including turning off Chrome and starting all over again, as far as Google was concerned that email of mine didn’t exist.
So I tried to log in on my smart phone into the same email account using the same user name and password and it worked normally. I sent and received a few emails using it on my smart phone. Then I went back to Chrome on my computer and found that my account still didn’t exist.
Then I had an idea to try to log in into that same account using the Firefox browser. It worked there.
So, is Google really that smart?
