SOMEONE AT GOOGLE FAILED TO GOOGLE ‘ALPHABET’

MOUNTAIN VIEW, California  (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – So Google is now part of Alphabet, a new holding company that will manage Google and all of its other products. Why is the new company called Alphabet?

Google/Alphabet CEO Larry Page says it’s because Alphabet means a “collection of letters that represent language, one of humanity’s most important innovations, and is the core of how we index with Google search!”

But the domain name for Alphabet is abc.xyz — not alphabet.com (which is currently getting hammered with traffic it seems).

It looks like neither Google nor Alphabet own alphabet.com — BMW does. Alphabet is part of the BMW group and a business mobility solution with a focus on fleet management and financing. Alphabet was founded in 1997, so it’s unlikely that the company will give up its long-established domain name.

The bottom line is, someone at Google didn’t think of googling ‘Alphabet’ before he or she recommended the new name for the giant Internet search company.

Total fail.

Google will hence be called Alphabet, according to the announcement.

The new logo was presented to the media during a champagne reception at the company’s Mountain View main campus Monday afternoon.

GOOGLE’S SURPRISE ANNOUNCEMENT: YOU CAN NOW ‘ALPHABET IT!’

Logo_Google_2013_Official.svgMOUNTAIN VIEW, California (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – In a letter to shareholders on Monday, Google CEO Larry Page announced a name change for the Internet search giant.

Google now falls under a new holding company, called Alphabet, which will be run by the two co-founders, Page and Sergey Brin.

The announcement stunned movers and shakers in Silicon Valley as well as the universe of the Internet as we have always known it.

“Google” has become a household word, synonymous with “Search.”

So now, if someone asks for information and you want them to search the Internet, all you have to say is “Alphabet it!”

It doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as  “Google it!”
