The past several posts I’ve been singing the praises of Google. However, all is not perfect in Google Land. There have been the occasional really bad ideas – Google Wave, for example – and the abandonment of some really good ideas, such as Google Notebook. In this post I’m going to stay away from the more published flaws that Google has had to endure. Instead, I’ll cover just a few things that I’ve found to be a bother.
I’ve already mentioned that until only recently, group accounts could not be used for Google Maps, Picasa, or other many other Google products. That really limited the effectiveness of those accounts. Fortunately, that has been corrected. However, there are still a few things that are not quite right.
