Innovative Google

One of the things which makes Google stand out is the manner they come out with innovative stuff which is simple and identifies with every user. Apart from the great search engine and other applications they provide, there is a sense of belonging they create. Those who have a Gmail account would have seen this message when they get to the gmail site. For those who dont, here it is copy pasted from the site (I hope Gmail team wont mind that). I give full credit to them:


A Gobble approach to email.

In 1621, a few hundred Pilgrims and Native Americans sat down to celebrate a bountiful harvest. The feast lasted three days, and included fowl, venison, fish, berries, watercress, lobster, dried fruit, clams, and plums. There was no pumpkin pie, however. There was also an alarming lack of user-friendly webmail services.

Now, 383 years later, it's once again time to celebrate what has come to be known as Thanksgiving—a time to gather with family and friends and give thanks for all that we have. We have many things to be thankful for. But mostly, we are thankful for you—our users—who remind us of why we work so hard all year and why we love what we do. That's better than all the dried fruit and clams in the world.

Happy Thanksgiving! Thank you for making our approach to email yours.

Gobble gobble,
The Gmail Team


Not to mention the innovative designs of the pie and turkey which they have incorporated in their Google & Gmail signs.

Just wondering, why dont other big software giants think of something like that with their products?
