Getting closer

These smoke stacks are hardly the tallest structures in Springfield, but everywhere I go, my eyes are drawn in their direction. And this is what I see.

* "The new Google tries to understand you..." Setting aside for now all the questions (why, how, what) that one corporation knows so much about you that it can understand you, I don't want to be understood by Google. I want a search engine to be a tool to figure out the next step, not to give me the conclusion. When I put a question in the search box, I want to know the answer everyone else is getting. Not one tailored to me, based on some undisclosed algorithm. I want to know what everyone else knows.

Well, I guess they don't know as much as they think they do. I would never drive 90 miles just to go out to eat.
