Lots. After our recent story in Wired, we received thousands of e-mails, feedback, and requests for trials. However, one of the funniest notes I got was in regards to our name and follows:
“I’m looking forward to trying your browswer. One thing, and please take this as constructive criticism, is that I believe that you should reconsider using “Flock” as the name of your browswer. It’s an awful name. Phonetically, it has a harsh sound. As letters on a page, it looks ugly. It rhymes with “Glock” and “shlock,” and it isn’t too terribly different from the f-word.
In my humble opinion “Flock” is a bad choice for a brand name.”
There is nothing really humble about this opinion, but I respect his honesty nonetheless. I just wish it wasn’t in regards to the name I happened to come up with. 🙂
