Off topic: Google Chrome


By now I'm sure you've heard about Google's new browser, Chrome. When I read about it on the official Google blog yesterday, I thought, hmm, sounds great. Too bad, like is all-too-often the case, it doesn't run on Mac yet. Sigh. I hope those of you on PCs find some time to give it a whirl and let me know what you think. In the meantime, for the spin doctors among us, this "translation" of yesterday's announcement from Wired just cracked me up. Here's just a bit:

    Google: At Google, we have a saying: "launch early and iterate."

    Translation: Outside Google, it's sometimes misheard as "launch early and dominate."

    Google: While this approach is usually limited to our engineers, it apparently applies to our mailroom as well!

    Translation: Heh, heh, heh. Even our mailroom guys are go-getters.

    Google: As you may have read in the blogosphere, we hit "send" a bit early on a comic book introducing our new open source browser, Google Chrome.

    Translation: The propellerheads thought it was far more interesting than Gustav or Bristol.

    Google: As we believe in access to information for everyone, we've now made the comic publicly available -- you can find it here.

    Translation: We won't try to stop you from reading our promotional material.
