Hair Today, ...

Bill Gates goes to the hairdressers and asks for his usual above-the-ears haircut. The hairdresser makes some remarks about the weather and the sports results, and then says "Google Chrome is really good, isn't it?"

A little later, he says, "I see Google have a new Music Search feature where you can search for a song, listen to it on Lala or MySpace, and then buy it."

Then after a few minutes, he asks, "Did you know they've just put a Similar Images feature on Google Image Search?"

Gates yells, "Why are you so interested in Google?"

"Oh, I'm not," says the hairdresser. "It's just that every time I mention Google, your hair stands on end."
