Agog at Google?

Time maybe isn't something you have on your hands when you're tucked away in a dark corner of your office or bedroom, roll of toilet paper on hand for another (lovely) night of 'hunt the obscure sexual term and subsequent image booty' (yes, we did mean to use that word.) In this day and age, wasted minutes are wasted dollars so companies have to be on the cutting edge of technology to stay ahead, THINQ reveals.

Which is why Google, one of the world's biggest online companies is capitalising on its search engine tool with a new patent, making it more effective at what it's most used for. Yep, that's right, porn search queries. No longer will typing the word 'rabbit' (one-handed) produce innocent pictures of fluffy little bunnies bearing Easter eggs.

'Instead of measuring the selection rate across all independent queries or query classes, the selection rate across all non-pornographic queries can be used to measure distractiveness score. This takes into account that, when a pornographic query is used, pornographic images are sought. One skilled in the art can, within their own experience, surmise what a pornographic query is. While the patent application falls short of detailing precisely what these pornographic search terms might be, leaving it up to the reader's imagination [...]'

Somehow this sounds as if porn addicts are being inspired to be more literate in their enquiries, which is not perhaps the point of the exercise...
