    My friend and I noticed that when you are logged into Google, you get different results then if you weren't.
    I tried this on a computer at my library and i got different results.

    Maybe the one at the Library had cache from someone else's Google searches coming before you used the computer.

    When you're logged in to Google it can use data from your email and other linked services to tailor the results to things you'd be most interested in.

    A lot of people went all "tin-foil hat" when Google revealed their email data was being used in search results but that only happens with YOUR account signed in. Your email info isn't shared with others, if you sign out of Google those search results go away.
