Side Effect!

I was sitting in front of my computer struggling with all the updates and security setting when I unlocked my phone for a Google search for some assistance.

I know these days we are so much dependent on the internet that any question pops up in our mind we turn to Mr Google to seek our answers. But what I noticed is that dependency has turned into over-dependency.

I had just typed ‘will’ when the possible suggestions cracked up intriguing me and leading me to type what the internet suggested and the questions kept me laughing for hours. I mean really, can internet give answers to question regarding what you should do or how one’s love life could be? Can it solve your personal matter? Can it tell you your future possibilities of giving an exam or going abroad or even if you can love again?

I think not!

  1. I love to type in questions to Google just to see what others ask. It’s hilarious lol. I use Google for lots of things like “how to get a wasp out of your house” I didn’t know!

    1. Yes, I am not blaming internet, it is indeed genius but some of the questions asked there makes me feel we are getting day by day dependent on internet rather than ourselves. Will I pass CAT? If you work hard you will, Internet won’t help you there.

  2. the internet can give you many answers to many questions. it is not what or how you ask as much as should you accept the answers? lol
    google and all the other search engines have become what the ancient greeks/romans etc would go to their “oracles” for. 😉 so google is just our modern day oracle. lol

  3. That’s what happens with me every time..
    One day I was searching something and Internet took me on a journey and I ended up searching about : why do giraffe have long necks!
    Btw, what’s the font of your phone?

Your perception holds importance for me.
