The Job We Never Had at Google

A Google a Day:

I don't like Google's solution to today's April 12 question. But it's really just due to the ambiguity of the question itself.

My standard for top performance search answering:

I'd only rate myself a B on this question. It took two sets of search terms for me to find the answer. Better than Google's 3 though.
