BRILLIANT! (Gulp the Google)

Google today announced GoogleGulp, which has got to be one of the best April Fools jokes I’ve ever seen. The privacy notice is priceless.

“Google Gulp and Your Privacy
From time to time, in order to improve Google Gulp’s usefulness for our users, Google Gulp will send packets of data related to your usage of this product from a wireless transmitter embedded in the base of your Google Gulp bottle to the GulpPlex™, a heavily guarded, massively parallel server farm whose location is known only to Eric Schmidt, who carries its GPS coordinates on a 64-bit-encrypted smart card locked in a stainless-steel briefcase handcuffed to his right wrist. No personally identifiable information of any kind related to your consumption of Google Gulp or any other current or future Google Foods product will ever be given, sold, bartered, auctioned off, tossed into a late-night poker pot, or otherwise transferred in any way to any untrustworthy third party, ever, we swear. See our Privacy Policy.”

“Tossed into a late-night poker pot.” Now that is funny stuff. Microsoft – study up if you plan to beat Google. You gotta have FUN doing this stuff.

    Yes, the final slope is enough to get the old pump pumnipg away nicely! I always carry a stick when I'm out so I can pause and rest for a few seconds if I need to.We've yet to see much of the interior layout of any of our neighbours but none of them seem quite the same. The houses are about thirty years old so a fair amount of improvement has gone on. On the outside there's little scope for ground level extension, and the council has consistently opposed adding living accommodation in the roof space. Nice houses, though. The only snag could be that the gardens are small. When you know about Welsh valley development you can understand the reasons.We love the place, though, and have no thoughts of moving on!
