    I was searching for a "computer" image at google, and noticed that Apple is (currently) the number one result for this general term. Beats out Dell.

    Clever, eh?

    (I wonder if this will be Macbyte'd. (Macbytten?))

    BWAHAHAHA!!! Altough I didn't need Google to tell me that :D

    For awhile "evil empire" gave Microsoft as the number one search result. I think that MS threatened Google with a lawsuit over slander or some such, and Google changed it so that it's just an MS 'The Truth' website.

    LOL... MSN Search doesn't list Apple until the 2nd page. Dell is their first result. Seems fishy to me.

    Type "failure" in the Google search engine and click "I'm Feeling Lucky" and a picture of George W. Bush comes up.

    This offends me, just thought it was interesting....

    I am a republican though and strongly think wrong of this :cool:

    Alphabetical

    Apple is at the top of the list because the list is sorted in alphabetical order and most updated. It's funny about the MSN search engine listing Apple on the 2nd page.
