Pushing Google's leavings

When you promise pennies from heaven, it better rain or folks are going to be unhappy.

Google does remind people of a kid with ADHD.

They throw a whole lot of ideas against the wall and hope some stick, but they have a tough time keeping all their commitments. It's as if they don't remember making them.

Those who got the commitments certainly do. So the people who submitted ColaLife to a long-forgotten Google idea called 10 to the 100th (as in 10 to the power of 100), are trying to embarrass the big galoot into following through the project's Web site.

Writes Simon Berry:

Backing off the original vision was bad enough but, more seriously, 170,000 ideas have simply disappeared. Only Google knows what they are.

If you submitted to this project, and remember what you submitted, you can now resubmit it here, Hey, they're on Facebook.

That'll teach that mean old Google. When you promise pennies from heaven, it better rain or folks are going to be unhappy.
