* AmericansHateTingle: Google is getting a lot of flak from European regulators over privacy concerns.
* AwesomeMoments:
** The release of the ''VideoGame/PacMan'' Google Doodle ([[MilestoneCelebration commemorating Pac-Man's 30th anniversary]]).
** Google Street View taking pictures of the highest mountains on each continent, ''including'' Mount Everest.
** The Google Doodle commemorating the [[MilestoneCelebration 50th anniversary]] of ''Series/DoctorWho'', like the above mentioned''VideoGame/PacMan'' doodle, was made into a flash game. And it was '''glorious'''.
* CreatorsPet: Google keeps pushing Google+, to a lukewarm at best reception from the userbase.
* TheFireflyEffect: The subject of [[http://washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2013/03/21/googles-trust-problem/ this Washington Post article]], when Google Reader joined the company's graveyard of discontinued services.
-->If there's even a 25 percent chance that Google Keep will be canceled in two years, do you really want to be the sucker who spent endless hours organizing your life around it?
* FunnyMoments:
** Going incognito (i.e. private browsing mode) in Google Chrome warns you that it won't protect you from secret agents and people standing behind you.
** Their Doodle [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KX2BQM0D01M celebrating the life]] of [[Music/{{Queen}} Freddy Mercury]]. Probably qualifies for the Awesome and Funny lists as well.
* HeartwarmingMoments: The famous Super Bowl 2010 ad, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnsSUqgkDwU AKA "Parisian Love"]].
* ParanoiaFuel:
** Sure, Google is a nifty way to manage your emails and your documents, but Google also has your personal information. Do you really trust them to "not be evil"?
** Desktop search takes it UpToEleven, quite possibly the only product that does what you want it to do [[GoneHorriblyRight way too well]].
** 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...
* SidetrackedByTheGoldenSaucer: Google's ''PacMan'' "logo" (their first interactive Google Doodle, coinciding with [[MilestoneCelebration Pac-Man's 30th anniversary]]) managed to cause this on the day it was released (spicing up a relatively boring webpage in the process that's typically used for web-searching), to the tune of '''[[http://blog.rescuetime.com/2010/05/24/the-tragic-cost-of-google-pac-man-4-82-million-hours/ approximately 4,819,352 hours of lost time, with a cost of $120,483,800.]]''' And said Google Doodle remains in playable form [[http://www.google.com/pacman/ here]].
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks:
** The Safe-Search filter. As of December 2012, there is no way to turn it completely off. This makes using the internet [[TheInternetIsForPorn for its intended purpose]] ''much'' less efficient.
** The new version of Google Mail is especially hated. The compose feature got rid of a lot of features that professional users rely on.
