Google Removes "View Image"

Liam Jones
Liam Jones

So Google just shot themselves in the foot for some unknown reason. They made some deal with Getty Images to allow their images on Google Images in exchange for removing the view image button. For some reason, Google seems to believe that anyone at all gives a shit about Getty Images.

Is there any hope Google has reached the point where they begin to implode from being too big? Why would they make a deal with some irrelevant company that requires them to make such a big change to Google?

This has to be related to the "trump needs to be shot" thing from the SOTU. The company that was filming there (forget the name) was recently acquired by Getty, who were involved in censoring the whole debacle. I'm not sure what removing view image is even gonna do, but I guess Getty thinks that us not being able to look too closely at an image in native resolution will be a good thing. Like that is gonna stop us.

Google has been making their primary "service" worse and worse every fucking month.

View image.

I noticed when I was steal- creatively commandeering sources for work and that's what I did. Took 2 seconds and is usually better than View Image because it goes to the google link instead of another webpage that may or may not allow me to see the image or redirect me, or store it as a 1920x1080 image, but render it as a thumbnail full of the million more thumbnails and I have to go digging for it. Then 3 minutes later, find nothing.

The left has achieved its self destructive goals, and we're in the middle of the happening. May God preserve us.

To get android to stop tracking your location you can't install any gapps so your phone can't download anything from the google play store which is the majority of the apps.

and even then it still pings google IPs.

Choosing ios over chromeos or android is net benefit for user privacy.

Imagine a world where people use android phones to browse with google chrome to access their gmail and watch videos on youtube with their google fiber connection. That's the world google wants to create.

Wow, that's a radically different claim from the one you were making a second ago when you implied the entire service was nixed. To be fair, the OP is stupid; it didn't even link an article. What it's talking about is the "image view" button that appeared when you clicked on a picture. The significance of this is that it's harder for laymen to download images, deterring "theft" of images. It's not like the whole option is gone.

Grayson Perry
Grayson Perry

I...don't even know how to respond to this. Are you being ironic?

Dylan Gonzalez

I think the whole issue is around having one step more to download the fullsize image instead of the thumbnail, a mild annoyance, but meaningful in the context of Google deliberately offering a worse product to it's customers.

Christopher Robinson
Christopher Robinson

That's not really the point, but, yeah, I concede. Maybe iOS in one sense is a more pragmatic choice, but that doesn't really justify owning an smartphone and subscribing to these unethical services in the first place--and you'd be remiss to think that Apple doesn't have their own counterparts to most Google services or exploit their users just as much; it's just that the Apple walled-garden ecosystem happens to be a lot more insular. It certainly doesn't justify recommending iOS to anyone simply because it's slightly less evil than (but relatively as abysmal) Google's Android. That's just absurd.

Recommending is a strong word, and everyone here is aware of the danger of smartphones in general, but I'm being realistic about this.
You will not convert people to abandon phones, they're too useful and convenient to ever achieve that, so I'd rather take the lesser evil, and the walled-garden is a big part of that.
I shudder whenever I see my friends and famiily downloading any malware-ridden app form the Play Store because 'everybody else does it', and frankly a computer designed to be handled by idiots and protecting them from themselves is just what they need. I'm talking about MDs and lawyers here, mind you.

Very few people realize how technology has the potential of being, and despite all disagreements, that's why we congregate here, but that doesn't mean everybody else doesn't matter.
We need a sensible approach to privacy and security, not absolutist purity spiralling.

I can personally say that I can literally not use Google Images anymore. I'm one of the crowd that brushes off the freetards crusade against Jewgle search in general but Google Images is officially un-fucking usable now. I actually have to find a new image search. They force me to visit web pages to hunt down images if I want the original. It's infuriating

Yeah, but both of those are just as bad honestly. Like, it would be horribly naive to think that either of those services wouldn't exploit their users in precisely the same way Google does if they had the resources and incentive--actually, they do have those two things. Both startpage and searx.me are good, sure, but they're both still technically dependent on other proprietary services--searx less-so because it's a metasearch engine, but there's no real, good, (ostensibly) privacy-respecting solution, so it's about as good as startpage.

Does anyone else use surfraw? The program itself actually kind of sucks; you have to enter your search query and then select what site you want to search with, but I've been using helm-firefox-bookmarks, and the workflow is a lot more streamlined. Actually, helm-firefox-bookmarks doesn't even use surfraw, even though it uses the helm-surfraw url formats when it makes its queries. It makes a lot more sense to lop in your bookmarks and search entries into one Helm buffer, since they're pretty related.

I just wrote a little snippet like this
(setq helm-surfraw-duckduckgo-image-url
"duckduckgo.com/?kp=-2&q=%s&type=list&iax=images&ia=images"
)
(setq helm-surfraw-hooktube-url
"hooktube.com/results?search_query=%s"
)

And it's a lot easier to choose from three headers than entering two separate prompts to make a web search.

The most surreal thing about this is that with links like "Who we are", it reads like the banner to some kind of startup company. The other two links are wild, too, in some kind of absurd, dystopian way evocative of Nazi human experiments. I wrote a short story when I was younger about a scifi world basically like our modern society except everyone has an entire wiki devoted to themselves. When I wrote it, I kind of meant it in a more symbolic way, but jeez.

Joseph Jackson

It wasn't really that hard; it's actually really useful. It was kind of implied, but I should mention that I'm using EXWM. Here's the other snippet:

(defun helm-firefox-bookmarks ()

(interactive)
(helm :sources `(helm-source-firefox-bookmarks
,(helm-build-dummy-source "DuckDuckgo Search"
:action (lambda (candidate)

Oh shit, I completely forgot surfraw was a thing. Reading the man page right now. I like how qutebrowser lets you add keyword searches because I typically search from the same specific wikis/music/pirate sites every time. But I'm waiting for per domain settings before I pick it up again.

it would be a violation of the gpl as android is derived from linux, that said, its kinda pointless to have it open source anyway since the hardware makes it basically impossible to use any code you might want to change unless they accept your pull request, and if youre doing anything interesting, they probably wont.

tfw you think apple google and microsoft arent all equally scummy, what is this, the tech company version of the 2016 election?

yer fuckin delusional if you think anything about apple is safe, if they had access to 90% of websites like google did, theyd do the exact same fuckin thing, every phone with a sims card is vulnerable, just because your phone is glued shut and you cant get to it does not change the facts, google does in fact scan play story apps for exploits, and they do just as shitty of a job as apple.

This is almost worse advice than telling someone to get a console instead of building a Windows PC for games

You can actually drag images to your desktop or right-click to save them, I'm pretty sure that couldn't be done before the update. Guess image search is still half functional

Yes, I know that is the intent, but if you go to both startpage and google and put in the same search term you will get different results. just go try it for yourself... you fucking idiot.

rather not rely on Google at all
why? if you're not looking up politically charged material, then why not use the best there is. If you can VPN (etc) and/or startpage, so you don't give usable data / get tracked, then so much the better.

They removed a lot of semi-advanced syntax long ago. And if you try to use things like inurl etc. more often than once in a blue moon, you will be accused of "unusual activity" and be forced to do involuntary free labor in the form of training botnet ai by solving captchas.

"View image" link is gone but now there's a "Images may be subject to copyright" message under each miniature copy
I guess that's somewhat of a hint. They don't want people to download full-quality image copies anymore.

Excluding words is racist, user. You must care for diversity in your search phrases and include at least five or six words that contribute nothing or are even counterproductive to finding what you intended to find, but make your search more diverse and thus inherently and ultimately and indisputably superior.

can root android
thats not intended tho, and jailbreaking IS rooting an iphone, also if you think rooting your android didnt void your warranty then i got bad news for you...

Chase Jones

thats not intended tho
Wrong, Jewgle are the ones who develop the tools and frameworks that make rooting possible. Most of the time rooting literally just involved patching the running kernel through adb after unlocking the bootloader (which is like 5 clicks in any official rom under developer options)
and jailbreaking IS rooting an iphone
Not at all. The entire iOS userland is sandboxed inside a FreeBSD Jail. thet's where the term "Jailbreak" comes from. "Rooting" an Android device does not involve breaking out of any sandbox, because Android doesn't snadbox the user. Rather, in Android, each usermode application is simply its own user that has different r/w permissions. Rooting an Android is just injecting or enabling the superuser binary. It's nothing like Jailbreaking.

how they removed the ability to put a minus sign infront of words to exclude them from search results
I just searched for "stomach -cancer" and got appropriate results

Jacob Wilson

thats because theres massively more results for 'stomach' by itself, if you want to see this in action, try searching for 'android -phone' instead...

I tried looking for 'best smartphone' expecting some listicles and I was able to do away with some of then by minusing numbers. Minusing is wonky sometimes, but it still works.

False, some makes & models even have specific manufacturer & telco support for rooting:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rooting_(Android)#Manufacturer_support
As opposed to iOS, where the closest thing Apple offers is paying at least a hundred bucks a year for the privilege of compiling binaries that can only run on your personal phone.

And that doesn't even touch on the stuff I ticked off other than rooting, most of which is fully supported on every Android device.
