The guys over at zapr have a very cool new
It’s genius and Michael and the rest of the team at
Now, I’ve always found the concept of “US English” & “British English” rather amusing – English is English – and so by definition, it comes from England (or Britain if you like…) So americans spell some stuff wrong…. that’s their perogative I guess….
It seems that if you change you regional settings away from US English then the much publicised changes to GoogleTalk are not available to you…. no chat window in your inbox – I just presumed that I was unlucky not to have it yet…. but no, I was daft enough to ammend my local settings to UK English – heaven forbid! I live in the UK (give or take a technicality – it’s strictly a Crown Dependency and part of the British Isles rather than the UK – but who’s splitting hairs?)
More importantly – I was missing the MUCH Hyped Delete button – what’s going on Google? Does delete mean something different in US English? Has your localisation team been too busy to translate?
I’m disappointed to say the least…..
The nice people over at
I’d like to point out that anyone who gets one as a result of reading this should contact me – as I’ll be very upset if you win and I don’t!! 🙂
make Einstein write how much he thinks you rock! Or make him write “naughty” things….. just too much fun really – or am I too easily amused?
