The smugness of Apple fans, the delusions of BlackBerry fans, and other Google autofill revelations

Google Autofill iPhone BlackBerry

What lies in the collective unconscious of the entire global smartphone consumer base? Google (GOOG) knows the most common questions people ponder in their private moments. Google sees our souls. And when you start typing a question in a Google search box, you see a fleeting glimpse of the collective mind. It’s rarely a pretty sight.

It’s all there — the smugness of Apple (AAPL) fans, the desperation of HTC (2498) fans, the delusions of BlackBerry fans, the weirdness of Nokia (NOK) fans… the whole gamut of human emotion.
