Quench your thirst for knowledge

In full awareness of the date, have a look at the latest 'release' from Google.
Google Gulp is:

... a line of "smart drinks" designed to maximize your surfing efficiency by making you more intelligent, and less thirsty.

Oddly enough, many elements of the site, particularly the FAQs, seem to be clever satirical references to other Google activities over recent months. Surely not. For example:

4. What if I don't want to use Auto-Drink™?
No problem – simply turn off Auto-Drink™ on your Google Gulp preferences page.
5. Well, shouldn't Auto-Drink™ be default-off?
You mean we should cripple a perfectly useful feature just because of a little bad PR?
6. Yes.
Though that doesn't go far enough, of course. I think retailers should be able to prevent the bottle cap being removed at all.


That's so American. Drinks as chemicals. Nothing about what's actually in them. I think I'll stick to Atkinsons' tea.:)
