“Is Google a woman? Because it won’t let you finish without coming up with other suggestions”

Is the search engine Google a woman? Many images have been made suggesting this.

“I also reason that Google is a woman; its just as unpredicatable” was posted on Twitter on May 22, 2009. “I swear Google is a woman...cuz I certainly don’t understand her” was posted on Twitter on June 4, 2009.

Google—like a woman?—has an answer to everything. “Someone said i think google is a women cuz it has an answer to everything well i think google is a woman cuz it always tries to correct you” was posted on Twitter on June 19, 2010. “Google is a woman...... Why else would it know everything?” was posted on Twitter on November 19, 2010.

Google’s incremental search/autocomplete feature was used in the “Google is a woman” meme in September 2011. “Dear Google, Please stop behaving like a woman… will u please allow ppl to complete d whole sentence before u start guessing/suggesting!!” was posted on Twitter on September 19, 2011. “How do you know google is a woman?...She won’t let you complete the whole sentence before she starts guessing & suggesting” was posted on Twitter on September 26, 2011. “Is google a woman? Because it won’t let you finish your sentence without coming up with other suggestions” was posted on Twitter on September 30. 2013.


Wikipedia: Incremental search
In computing, incremental search, incremental find or real-time suggestions is a user interface interaction method to progressively search for and filter through text. As the user types text, one or more possible matches for the text are found and immediately presented to the user. This immediate feedback often allows the user to stop short of typing the entire word or phrase they were looking for. The user may also choose a closely related option from the presented list.

Wikipedia: Autocomplete
In search engines
In search engines, autocomplete user interface features provide users with suggested queries or results as they type their query in the search box. This is also commonly called autosuggest or incremental search. This type of search often relies on matching algorithms that forgive entry errors such as phonetic Soundex algorithms or the language independent Levenshtein algorithm. The challenge remains to search large indices or popular query lists in under a few milliseconds so that the user sees results pop up while typing.
