This is why I love BRAN, the tech podcast by Aussie journos Angus Kidman, Nathan Taylor and Roulla Yiaccoumi: a quote from the latest episode (90): “Every site Sensis has rolled out is … let’s not mince words… TOTAL SHIT…”
I couldn’t agree more. I was amazed at what abject shit the new version of Whereis is compared to Google Maps.Â Yellow Pages is equally useless… I hate the way when you’re trying to find a plumber in your area, the first 50 results are always massive contractor companies with a 1800 number that cover the entire state. The sooner Google’s business directories supplant telco directories, the better. Google gets search, and that’s what directories are all about from the end user’s perspective.
Speaking of search, Sensis’ shit search engine… why do they even bother? Microsoft can’t make the smallest dent in people’s loyalty to Google, and that’s with them having full control of Windows so they can sucker in people who use the default settings in Internet Explorer.
Why doesn’t Sensis just shrivel up and die, in the face of the superior competition?
