Disclaimer

I hate to disappoint the two people who thought this blog is created by Google™. This blog is not affiliated in any way with Google™. I don't work for Google™.

For those who thought this blog tries to mislead people, I say it just tries to be an unofficial source of information about Google™. I didn't use this BlogSpot subdomain to trick people that might be looking for the Official Google™ Blog or other Google™'s blogs. In fact, when I started this blog, Google™ didn't have too many blogs.

Google™ repeatedly said it doesn't build an operating system (or a browser), so the name of my blog is just a metaphor for all their web applications that might diminish the value of a real operating system. It's not the name of a Google™ product.

I try to be objective, although I don't pretend to be a journalist, and try to create the blog I'd like to read in the morning on my laptop. That means the opinions presented here are my opinions and Google™ is not responsible for them.

Note: this post (and hopefully this blog) respects Google™'s Guidelines for Third Party Use of Google Brand Features, Google AdSense™'s terms of use and other policies and terms of use.

  1. Let me crawl out of lurkerland long enough to say that I am one person who very much enjoys reading this blog in the morning, or any time of day. OK, there was awhile there when it seemed like my RSS reader was getting repeats of your posts on a regular basis ...

    I suppose, since we're worried about trademarks, that I should note I regularly refer to the "Google Operating System" because it seems so appropriate, and now that I think of it, sometimes people think I'm serious and I have to explain about your blog.

  15. I read this blog every day, I love it. Always interesting. Ionut Alex. Chitu makes it very clear that this is his personal blog about Google(tm) and not an official Google(tm) blog.

  16. While I never believed this belonged to Google, I totally believe in the power of their operating system. I often (like others) refer to the GOS only to have to explain myself ... then point people here.

    Keep it up.

  17. You !@#$%!!!
    Your blog has managed to get me off to a google investigation spree almost every other day. I'm gonna sue you for the daily $5000 I lose due to wasting my first half-hour at work.
    You get this straight, ok?
    You'd better ask Google(TM) to help you out with the lawyers' fees cuz they're benefitting like nothing else outta this stuff of yours!

    May GOS bless you!
    ;) ;) ;)
