    I wish I had audio on this computer, I might have to check it out again when I get home.

    But as soon as I saw Johnny Lee, my immediate reaction was "oh well that explains a lot". I'm really happy for the guy knowing he's got a job in this kind of thing, he completely deserves it. Engineers like him are extremely rare these days.

    When i read the headline I thought Google had come up with a contextually sensitive system to tell people that the stuff they were posting to Facebook was pointless and to please STFU.
