Google Desktop Code Name Confirmed: Fluffy Bunny
In a bit of news that means nothing to all but the most ardent Google-watchers, MarketingVOX has confirmed the code name for Google Desktop was indeed "Fluffy Bunny". Apparently, though, the original code name was "Total Recall", but Google wisely changed it to avoid comparisons to "evil"-sounding Department of Defense code names like "Carnivore" and "Echelon". "The choice of Fluffy Bunny may even have been intended to be sarcastic," says MarketingVOX.
