Anyhoo . . .Since yesterday/today is April Fools day and not one soul played a prank on me, I rather liked Google's bash and gettting their jollies on during this auspicious day. So no berating or stupidity this week, just a bit of fun.
It seems they are in need of an autocompleter and placed an advertisement for which of course, I have applied:
Google's quality team is looking for talented, motivated, opinionated technologists to help us predict what users are looking for. If you’re eager to improve the search experience for millions of people and have a proven track record of excellence, this is a project for you!
As a Google Autocompleter, you’ll be expected to successfully guess a user’s intention as he or she starts typing instantly. In a fraction of a second, you’ll need to type in your prediction that will be added to the list of suggestions given by Google. Don’t worry, after a few million predictions you’ll grow the required reflexes.
And of course there's Gmail Motion. Gmail Motion, Google Docs Motion: The latest beta technology to come to Google products is Motion. Gmail Motion uses your webcam to control Gmail. Unfortunately for couch potatoes, the motions that work with Gmail are full-body motions.
There, a little lighter this week wouldn't you say. Have a fabulous weekend. I get my new specs today so maybe I'll be a little more inclined post something of interest. Happy April Fool's Day.
