Is Google psychic?

I understand how/why Google and others place ads based on previous searches, etc. but guessing what I am thinking is a whole new ball game Cheesy
I decided to do a bit of further research into the value/worth of paying for Motor legal assistance and, having copied and pasted 'Motor legal assistance ' into the search field the first option was 'Motor legal assistance worth it' - exactly what I was about to type. I'd expected 'protection' or 'insurance' to come first Shocked

Re: Is Google psychic?

Reviews of stuff I search for are usually the first links, so expect its the common search terms used by most of Us.

Motor legal assistance.....  = P.P.I.   
one of those " scary things " these financial wizards dream up to scare you into paying for something "extra" that you might never need... and .. IF you did need it, they would find some "clause" that you had violated, so that they don`t have to pay for it.... and you are left "dangling"...

Nah, google's not psychic, if it was then it'd show you the info before you've consciously thought about it... Grin
What is psychic is the message thing on a Playstation, the times I've created messages simply through what the predictive text thinks I'm wanting to type is scarily accurate... Shocked
