Google today announced the rollout of a revolutionary search technology dubbed Google Instant. The predictive search technology begins returning results before a user finishes typing the query resulting in significantly faster results saving a typical users 2-5 seconds per search.

When members of Model Mayhem learned of this development, multiple threads were started demanding a return to “classic search”. Some users were confused with the instant results appearing before they were able to finish typing. One forum poster commented “i dont like it! not at all. dey are reading r minds and dats and invation of privacy.”

A user with the nickname WindowsME4evar claimed the thumbnail displays are a hindrance saying “It’s not faster. It actually slows down my U.S. Robotics 2,400 bps modem when those pictures pop up. GET RID OF IT NOW!”

Another member nick named ASCIIART posted on his Friendster update: “This is absolute madness! It does not even work. My website hosted on Tripod does not even come up. It’s all about corporate greed.”

When Google rival Steve Jobs was asked to comment, he issued this statement

they denied my modeling account without giving me a reason.

After hours of unrelenting protest, Google co-founder Sergey Brin finally relented replying “We’ve heard you loud and clear. We have moved classic search to another domain for those who like to keep using that. To use classic search, simply follow this link.”

Following that announcement, Model Mayhem members rejoiced and announced a gathering at a local restaurant to celebrate their win over Goliath. However, none of them were about to find the restaurant as paper maps are no longer sold in gas stations and these members refused to use GPS calling it a gimmicky fad.

In an unrelated announcement, representative of the group announced the banning of a long time member when he was photographed at Bestbuy purchasing a flat screen computer monitor to replace his fully functional 10 year old CRT.
