So, thanks to
global warming global cooling freaky weather (oh whatever it is, but it’ll get blamed on global warming anyways) Austin is expected to have a wonderful 14F weather this week. Given that insulation in homes here is kinda slim, especially in a garage, I was thinking about bringing in a spatial heater to warm up the wall that has water pipe in it.
Off I go to Google to search for a spatial heater. And I get back…
– The Psychology of Baseball Inside the Mental Game of the Major-something
– Thermal Imaging Camera
– Outdoor wireless access point
– A cockatiel cage(!)
– Electric convection oven.
Allright, I suppose a convection oven could be used as a spatial heater. Kinda. If I open it and point it at the wall. But seriously, how are any of the other results relevant? SEOs won, even though in this particular case it’s a pyrrhic victory, as I won’t be buying a book, a camera, an access point or a cage.
Theoretically, Google probably should have suggested “space heater”, but I did see some people talk about “spatial heater” too (in the context of “cold office, but spatial heaters are not allowed”) as that seems to produce list of relevant results, but even there Google managed to surprise me with some strange graphics for nearby stores block:
Hopefully this case will be fixed.
* Update * The strange thing in the second pic turned out to be “Dr Heater”, that, for some reason, was picked to demonstrate local results (versus numerous DeLonghi/Honeywell products)
