28. I miss the whimsical translate tools
But think of the risks Google was taking...

Prosecutor: "You are hereby charged that on the 28th day of May, 2005, you did willfully, unlawfully, and with malice of forethought, release an alleged English-Klingon translate tool with intent to cause a breach of the peace. How do you plead?"

(Google CEO) Eric Schmidt: "Not guilty."

Prosecutor: "That's fine. On the 28th of May, you released this translate tool."

Schmidt: "I did."

Prosecutor: "I quote an example. The Klingon phrase meaning 'Can you direct me to the station?' is translated by the English phrase, 'Please fondle my bum.'"

Schmidt: "I wish to plead incompetence."
