Obvious Names

27 Oct 2011

Over at Minimal, a plea for obviousness:

My mind is filled with the complexities this world throws at me all the time. I don’t need to make it even more complicated by having to start searching for what a product does because it is not clear from its name.

I am lazy and do not want to have to work any harder than I have to. This tendency towards idleness includes choosing which apps I use. It has always seemed that Google understands this very well: Gmail. Calendar. News. Reader. Wallet. Scholar. I have always appreciated their stance on name schemes.

So what the hell is Google+?
