Google is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think a million hits a day is impressive, but that’s just peanuts to Google.

Google vs. Civilization: 5 Google ProductsHated By The World
Google is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly,hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think a millionhits a day is impressive, but that’s just peanuts toGoogle.Google has a huge number of  products, ranging from the mundaneto the extreme: you can plan your month with Google Calendar or you can view millions of DD boobs in a fraction of a second withthe classic Google Search Engine. The point is, with Google, youcan do anything.That is, unless you are living in one of the manycountriesthat hasa beef with the company. Various Google products, and sometimeseven all of Google, have been banned in many countries. We regretto inform you that, if you are living in these countries, you are nolonger a free person.5.Gmail
Hated By:
Iran
What Happened?
On February 10th, the day before the anniversary of the Iranianrevolution’s anniversary, Gmail was banned by the Iraniantelecommunication agency.
 
It wasn’t temporary, either. According to the Wall Street Journal,the ban is to be permanent – i.e.
 forever 
.
But
Why
?
Apparently, there were to be major protests in Iran on theanniversary of the country’srevolution.Such a banning of animportant internet feature was supposed to be a way to prevent the protest from happening. Our sources don’t tell us whether or not itworked, but that isn’t completely relevant. The point is, the Iraniangovernment clearly thought that banning Gmail would work.Yes! I so knew I could convince them to ban it. Ali, you owe metwenty rial.
Why It’s Ridiculous
Gmail is not the only email service in the world. In fact, the toptwo email providers are Yahoo!Mailand Windows Live Hotmail.They have the most users. It would be slightly less ridiculous if thegovernment had banned both of those, but
no
, they chose Gmail.Further, banning the spread of messaging the day before the protestwould occur would probably not stop the protest from happening.
 
Maybe if it was done a week or two in advance it would work, buteveryone probably already knew where to go by the time the emailservice was banned.4.Google Street View
Hated By:
Austria, and pretty much all of Europe
What Happened?
Throughout 2008 and 2009, countries all across the world (butmostly in Europe) complained about Google Street View, a servicethat lets people see a street as if they were standing on itthemselves. But, these complainers decided that they didn’t wantStreet View in their country. So, either temporary or permanent bans were placed on the Google service, making it that much moredifficult to view nude beaches in France.Aww, shucks.
