Setting up a Gmail account -- funny things

So, I'm making a Gmail account for my in-law's business, and I'm to the part where you have to create a password. Just for a giggle, I entered 'fuckgoogle' into the box - here's where it gets funny:

Password - as soon as I got to the 'l' in the password, the strength meter jumped all the way to the top, but when I entered the final letter, it jumped right back down to the weakest.

Date of Birth - will only let you create an account if the DoB is between 1 and 150 years ago.So, I'm making a Gmail account for my in-law's business, and I'm to the part where you have to create a password. Just for a giggle, I entered 'fuckgoogle' into the box - here's where it gets funny:

OK, so not that funny.

Don't tie your cell phone to your Gmail account (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 2 years ago | (#39765311)

Your password was strong as it had a lot of letters, it fell when you didn't use numbers, other characters

Now this isn't funny...

After two years of using the cell phone I decided to let my gmail be routed to it as well.

Now I can't use Google without logging in, so have used Bing for the first time ever.

I can't access the speech recognition settings as I'm required to allow the phone
to access the Internet (Google) even when it's not in use.

I've deleted my Email account on the phone but I'm stuck with these log in requirements
and apparently Bing until I get a new cell phone.
