Microsoft Misspells New Code Name

So Microsoft will, after all, launch a beta program for its new Web analytics tool, code-named "Gatineau."

Now, we're sure that there must be a mistake in here somewhere. Surely Microsoft wouldn't use some town in Quebec as a code name. Oh, no. We suspect that Redmond meant to call its forthcoming heavy hitter "Gastineau," after Mark Gastineau of 1980s "New York Sack Exchange" fame. Some temp or public relations person must have dropped the "s" at some point. And -- you guessed it -- we fully expect the next version to be called "Klecko." When does football season start again?
