So, the Ceasar Chavez thing on Easter was a prank? I'll bet that cratered their strong sense of loyatly amoung 2 billion Christians worldwide. What brain dead fool thought that was funny? BING/Microsoft must be loving the sudden surge in Google defections. Very bad mistake...long term ramifications.

By doing all these pranks and showing that it really has a sense of humor, Google has very cleverly created a strong loyalty from its users, which competitors are hard-pressed to beat. How many people feel as positively about the Microsoft brand as they do about Google? Plus, this kind of humor is visibly engrained in the company's culture and the people they hire. You can't just decide from one day to the next, 'ok, let's start being funny over here at X company.' It just wouldn't work.

Google seems to have incorporated animals on a number of occasions in these pranks -- a translating app, and app that allows pets to text their owners, etc. Since many of us love our pets, I think this allows Google to better connect with the public, even if it is only in a jovial manner.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
