Priorities

You know Google Image Search? It's pretty cool. Naturally, Yahoo wants to try the same thing. Which is fine; good to see they're finally realizing that ripping off Google is the only way they'll stay in business.

But the interesting part is here, on Yahoo's front page, where they're hyping the image search. They decided to use four different pictures (with captions) to demonstrate the kind of stuff you can look for. You'd like to think that a lot of thought goes into this type of decision, but it seems to me that they relied on a focus group of one 13-year old girl with ADD. Because the four pictures are:

Hilary Duff
Puppies
Sports Cars
Lindsay Lohan

I really would like to have seen the meeting with said 13-year old girl. I bet she tried to get Uggs onto the list too, but they ran out of space.
