GMail Message

I like the “Grrr!”

It’s the little things that make applications like GMail such a pleasure to use. There are very few excuses for authoritarian messages and obscure error codes in software.

Internet does not enjoy being anthropomorphised — but people sure do like the human touch.

    Really? Often times people say such things are “unprofessional.”

    The only time you have license to type / act this way is when your software is so good, these little bugs (I know not a bug in this case, but all Google errors look this) won’t make people not take your software seriously (like, they won’t think you’re a little kid).

    But yeah. Well done goog.
