Big Bad is marked No Real Life Examples Please, Big Good is misuse anyway, Examples Are Not Recent, fixed Example Indentation, Scrappy Mechanic is for video games, other edits
* BigGood: If not of the entire internet, then Google is at least the BigGood of internet service providers, with their Google Fiber program being universally acclaimed, compared to Creator/TimeWarnerCable and Comcast, [[BigBad who are among the]] [[ZeroPercentApprovalRating most hated companies in America]]. It helps that Google started the program specifically to get the other guys to step their game up.

** Try googling yourself, or your credit card numbers. You can rest a bit easier knowing that Google likes to personalize what you find, but even then, other people might find it... * ScrappyMechanic: '''Google Instant'''. It forces you to search for whatever you're typing as you type it, even though the half-written word/sentence in question probably has nothing to do with what you're really after. The thing is obnoxious when it comes to slow computers, as it takes [[LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading absurd amounts of time]] for every individual page to load. Given the amount of loading it takes for ''one'' page, wouldn't it be a pain to go through several? To make matters worse, [[HopeSpot when it seems like you can disable it through your personal preferences]], it manages to reactivate itself unless you leave cookies on. And even if you ''do'' have a fast internet, the option keeps you from looking at several suggestions. ** In an update to Google's web browser, Google Chrome, there was an unremovable mechanic that detects if a page has [[LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading been loading for a very long time]] with no responses to the keyboard or mouse, and declares it unresponsive, prompting you to either wait for it to respond, or crash the page itself. Clicking wait will only let you wait for it to respond, but ''the damn window showing the unresponsive pages comes '''back up.''''' When you click "Kill pages", you can choose to reload the page. [[note]] That's the ''only button'' on the crash screen.[[/note]] But then, it begins to load ''even longer,'' bringing the window back up again, and ''again,'' '''AND AGAIN...'''
