    Mentioned by me in another thread. From todays BBC tech page
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-21956743

    Love the way the singer talks about "Not being Found" then takes part in a BBC piece - Luv the methodology to her Marketing.

    The reference to hyphens may upset a few people as well

    I bet the bbc language people are having a field day working out how to pronounce these things.

    I am surprised at Google's opposition to the Swedes' proposed definition of ungoogleable. Google let go of a great opportunity. The Swedes' proposed definition is what majority of web users attach to it. I wouldn't dream of saying something was 'unyahooable' when I could say 'ungoogleable' :-? .

    .... and everybody now knows how and where to find that band! :lol:

    Google are trying to hang on to their TM ain't they, there was a big issuse some years ago with people saying "Go google for it", they wanted people to say "Go google search it", something about if a word comes into common use, like Xerox in america, they lose some control.

    I don't recall the details, So I'm guessing its on the same lines.
