According to Google Blogoscoped, Timo Paloheimo has come up with a sort of parody of Google Search Engine. Simply known as "Google Minus Google", it is an unofficial copy of Google, which looks exactly like the real Google home page, except that the search results that you get from your query, do not contain any inputs from other Google services such as Knol, Blogger and YouTube.

As per Timo Paloheimo, "The tool is by no means perfect, more of a proof-of concept than a final product." This simple yet fun search option was created by Timo after he read an article in the New York Times, about how Google had turned into a media company.

According to Google Blogoscoped, "How does this tool work? You'll see when you perform a search: your query will just be redirected to a normal Google.com search, but it will be appended with [site:google.* -site:google.co.* -site:google.com.* -site:blogger.com -site:youtube.com -site:blogspot.com -site:jaiku.com -site:gmail.com]."
