Google 1

  • 溯洄從之

  • 據說台灣人俗稱google做古狗. 古狗 對 雅虎 (還有搜狐), 又幾襯喎. yahoo, "也好".

    google, 我本來猜它變自 goggle :
    goggle /l; NAmE l/ verb [v] ~ (at sb/sth) (old-fashioned, informal) to look at sb/sth with your eyes wide open, especially because you are surprised or shocked (OALD)


    華利指正, 才知道原來實情是這樣, 特此鳴謝:
    "Googol" is the mathematical term for a 1 followed by 100 zeros. ... Google's play on the term reflects the company's mission to organize the immense amount of information available on the web.(Google fact sheet)


    看了小奧的Google谷歌宣傳動畫, 知道google取名 "谷歌". 忽發奇想: 把 Google 譯做 "枯槁". 論讀音(孤稿)[PS:枯讀夫不是姑, 一直弄錯,噢!], 天依無縫吧! 不過肯定google不會用.
    枯槁形容憔悴。戰國策˙秦策一:形容枯槁,面目犁黑,狀有歸色。(民國教育部辭典)


    取名谷歌, 雅是雅, 然而用做動詞, "等我谷歌下呢個字先", 老是怪怪的. (總不及 "等我google下呢個字先" 順耳. )

    譯名一事, 按圖索驥, 照本宣科, 固難服眾, 即使別出心裁, 匠心獨運, 仍是眾口囁囁, 永無寧日. 除非福至心靈, 眼前一亮, 如見西施捧心, 驚為天人, 方能息議. 然而鳳毛鱗角, 萬中無一. (廢話一番, 只因技癢---順口雌黃. :P)

    節錄自 google 的 fact sheet:

    The Meaning of Google
    "Googol" is the mathematical term for a 1 followed by 100 zeros. The term was coined by Milton Sirotta, nephew of American mathematician Edward Kasner, and was popularized in the book, "Mathematics and the Imagination" by Kasner and James Newman. Google's play on the term reflects the company's mission to organize the immense amount of information available on the web.
