My husband was an IT tech, and if he doesn't know how to fix the problem, he finds a way. He understands what he's looking at and can make educated guesses, quantum leaps even, on how to proceed with it.

I, on the other hand, might as well be looking at ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. I can't fathom it. That might be because I don't give a hoot about it and I don't designate any brain space to learn it. I use it up on my own job.

You just nailed it!
Its because most people dont care to learn it. Google will tell you how to solve almost any problem, given enough research time. What counts is how hard/ how much time someone wants to invest into learning the processes neccessary to complete the given problem.

Every job is at stake to the internet dont be fooled. Its why every job should focus on customer service at this point, thats what the internet doesnt have at this point.
Do your job well, with a smile on your face, and be courteous to those you are working with and you thrive, not and you fail, this is the decline of many recent businesses. Its the reason we kick our competitors butts in town even thoug we have a smaller workforce in a. less frequented location

Reading this thread it makes me think you people automatically assume everything you're reading is accurate. I've done some searches on certain things and some of the answers are downright dangerous they are so wrong.

Some of the things I've seen although they will get you there aren't the right way and aren't repeatable. (generally)

Am I missing something? Google has never shown me where the answers where but hasn't told me how to do a darn thing.

This. I see stupid things people post on facebook and share and they don't even look it up, it just passed along. 20seconds online shows the post is only repeated on conspiracy websites and sites full of nuts, and then you find it debunked way down, but people don't do that, they just repost things like coke is made horse pee or all government leaders are really aliens from the Drako nebula.

Everyone knows they're from the Scorpius Nebula. Draco is so 2000
State leaders are from Camelopardalis Nebula.
No one is from the Draco.

Coke is not horse pee. It's shrimp excrement.

Thing about Google is that different people will get different answers. The search results a biased to be 'more relevant' to you based on their knowledge of your use of any of their 60+ products. This isn't conspiracy theory; just read their terms & conditions and privacy statements.

That is just like google's street view, and if you know even slightly the area around you then it is not hard to know what intersection you are looking at.

I like the layout of google better, but the search results of bing better.

Not too surprising that Bing might be slightly better in some cases, as it's pretty much been proven that Microsoft uses and combines search statistics from other search engines, including Google, as a basis for Bing. Which is cheating in a way, using data that others have developed without credit or compensation.

Heck, in a day I could write a fairly competent search engine if I did that.

I stick with Google.
