Your answer for #4 is wrong. Buzz was a failure from the moment it was conceived.

I won't be running for president of the Google Buzz Fan Club in this lifetime. But I have to assume you never experienced the clusterhole that was Wave. Just look at it:



If you're designing a social network, it might be a good idea to hire some designers with social skills. Wave makes Wuphf look visionary.

Anyway, Google gave Wave the hook just three months after its public launch. Buzz lasted 22 months. Wave "wins"!

Complete this famous line from the Paul Newman film Cool Hand Luke: "What we have here is a …" (80 points)



Woot FAIL. It should read "What we've got here is ..." No "a" or "have" in the original.

Well, that's the great thing about calling the game Failure. Anything we screw up just enhances the concept.

(Thanks for the correction.)

Any chance that Powerpoint playing in the booth will be uploaded? I have a suspicion it was completely unnecessary and the booth's only purpose was to launch monkeys.

While Buzz certainly seemed DOA, Google inexplicably kept it on life support for much longer.

LOL the guy "trying" to throw @ 1:13. Someone failed PE. And why were they throwing them anyway??? Woot monkeys are meant to be "flung" not thrown.

Don't go dissin' on thefenst. He knows that the only way to safely deliver a screaming monkey into a crowd is an overhand toss. If you fling a screaming monkey into a crowd, you could take someone's eye out.
