Another Corner Bookmark Variation

There are plenty of variations on Google's corner bookmarks, found inconsistently across several of their services. But I found this one considerably odd...

..."Goog Mail"? Perhaps theres now a lawsuit for the word "Mail" in the UK now, as well.

They can't call it "Gmail" in the UK, they have to call it "Google Mail". Since that name's quite long they've shortened it to "Goog Mail"

My point is though... why not just Mail? That's how it is on the rest of the pages.

Yea.

oh and in iGoogle, the night theme has a mini clock kinda thing... there are stars in a formation on the left side and one star disapears per hour... methinks anyway

When I went to Google D&S today I noticed that my Shortcut bar in the top left had yet again changed. Apart from more padding, Google Mail has been changed to "Goog Mail". What's also interesting is that it is the only service that has Google in it's link (well part of it) – all of the others just have their name, eg. Groups.

Note: I'm in the UK, so I expect it to read Google Mail instead of Gmail.
