I loved the Beta Test for goolge Wireless Brodband Joke. They really go in depth about flushing a connector down the toilet and setting the router on the back of the commode. I wonder how many people are going to buy into this, Hey its on the front page of Google,,,, it must be for real:)

Google Writer not Writely. If you read what it *does* you would see what it is(or should I say: isn't)

This on my brain for days. Maybe we already got the point for Google Writer. I need to make it structured, then post on.

Now, I think Google Writer can be a product that can works at 85% of Ionut's dream.

Recently, I already got the theory result that Google Writher can double the speed of the english sentence inputing. It is 50%.

Philipp Lenssen, can you find investment, or sell this product in advance to Google, MSN or Yahoo? I guess use 1,000,000USD, 60 programmers and not more than 60days can finish this project.

For the left 35%, the draft already in my brain. We can not finishe the final 15%, At least, computer can not know what I am thinking if we not input anything to it.
