    ...I've only just noticed that the word Google is actually "Go Ogle" in one word... It's a revelation!

    Anyone else noticed that? or am i a bit late to the party?

    Huh...it is, isn't it?

    Seems to be just coincidence, though. According to Wikipedia, the name does, indeed, come from a common misspelling of "googol", rather than the play on "go ogle"

    Still very interesting

    I think we are all a little slow. I never noticed it either. I know on some days I slower than on others.

    I thought it might have been on purpose, and that it had just evolved into the one word we see today.

    What's a googol clarinet?

    Go Ogle is similar to one I (and probably others) found some time ago: cow-orkers. ;)
