The last week or so, when I did a Google search for images of my blog postings, I noticed that my choices were rather limited.
I didn't pay too much attention at first, thinking the images I was looking for were odd and thus a limited selected. But after awhile, I noticed that ALL my searches were rather (excuse the term) f - cked up.
I looked at my browser and I saw BING! WTF? Since when did I CHOOSE BING as my Internet search provider? Was I sleepwalking and went to my computer in the middle of the night and selected BING?
You all know how I hate Mr. Softee
|Keep those bangs going Gates even though you're closing in on 70|
|How would you like this face as your boss?|
and Microsoft, two extremely ugly individuals in both physical appearance and attitude. Their physical appearance is a perfect metaphor for their company, UGLY.
Maybe hate is too mild a word. I detest them and Microsoft and their bullying tactics, lack of support, monopolistic tendencies and most of all, their unbridled arrogance. Over the years I have literally wasted thousands of dollars on Microsoft based computers. I finally wised up four years ago and ditched the whole frigging mess and went to Apple.
Since I saw the light four years ago and bought an iMac from Apple, my life has been soooo much better. No more hiring my Computer Guy to come and help me fix the every reoccurring glitches on my Windows based computer. You ask, why couldn't you call Microsoft? Are you kidding. They don't have support. That would cost money and take away from the billions (yes folks, you read that right, BILLIONS) of dollars that Gates and Ballmer have accumulated over the years from their gigantic scam of foisting their Windows based operating systems on the world.
Thus it came as quite a shock last night to discover that my search engine defaulted to the odious BING owned by Microsoft. WTF? Since when did I choose BING?
Well guess what folks? I didn't choose BING. It chose me. Am I surprised by this latest Microsoft tactic? NO.
I can't tell you how much this discovery that my computer kept defaulting to BING even though I had Google set up in my Preferences pissed me off. Is there NO WAY I can get away from the odious Mummy Man Gates and Bullet Head Ballmer? Don't they have enough money already? Does Gates need more for his Bill and Melinda Gates (what does his wife have to do with the foundation other than she's his wife?) Foundation so he can Save the World from hunger and disease and get his Nobel Peace Prize? Does Ballmer need more billions to buy another NBA franchise?
Yes, I'm on a rant. I'll wrap it up now.
So last night I was on the computer until 1:30 in the morning, with my Canadian friend Pat (on FaceTime) helping me figure a way OUT of Bing as my default search engine.
I checked the Preferences. I had Google set up and my default but something kept overriding it. HOW.DID.THAT.HAPPEN? Ever notice that when you're trying to look for something good and interesting or do something good and interesting on your computer how difficult it is? But when you don't want something on your computer it's there and you didn't even do anything to get it? And then you try to get it off and nada.
We checked the web forums. Confusing. All kinds of different advice. We checked You Tube. Again, frustrating and confusing. One You Tube video was especially annoying. It was made by a English woman with a heavy cockney accent hold her West
I finally went to bed last night, very frustrated.
I got up this morning, late. Still frustrated. After breakfast I went right into my home office and my computer. I called my friend Larry, maybe he could help me and I could avoid the $19 call to Apple Help Center. I was talking to him on FaceTime. I could hear banging in the background. He said his roof was being replaced. Okay. So, with the musical background (which was very annoying) we started to evaluate our options. After an hour or so, our two heads wasn't coming up with a solution. I decided to call Apple Help, resigned to paying the $19 to find out how to remove this software that I DIDN'T ASK FOR but was shoved down my throat (sorry for the visual but I'm trying to make a point here) by the likes of Gates and Ballmer.
|This loser is no longer in charge of Microsoft - wonder why? He got his BILLIONS though. Now he's puking out everybody with his ugliness at NBA basketball games|
Long story short, the girl/woman at Apple showed me almost immediately how to get rid of BING. Seems it was a third party extension automatically pasted into my Preferences at some point when I was on my computer. Well thank you very much "third party" who obviously gets money by inserting their male ware (which is what it is folks, I didn't ask for it) onto my computer.
F-ck you Bill Gates. F-ck you Steve Ballmer and whoever at Microsoft made more money by loading your crap onto my computer.
Bing is off my computer now and the welcome Google is back. I hope I never have to see the ugly visages of Gates and Ballmer again.
I'm dreaming, right? These two are like stepping in dog shit. You can remove the shit from your shoes but the smell is still there.
