Google’s New Name In China; Corn Song

Philipp Lenssen informs us that Google renamed its Chinese name to google-chinese-name-s.gif which sounds like “Guge,” according to Philipp. I asked my Chinese employee what it meant, he said “song” something, he said it really has no meaning; it’s just a “cool thing.” Philipp explains it means “corn song” or “valley song.” Ummm… ok? So I just walked back over to my Chinese employee and he thinks the name is really cool, since it sounds like Google.
