Clearing the air on a few important matters

by Linda Sharps on May 17, 2006

Hello, and thank you for visiting the Omni Blog. It's come to our attention that there is some confusion about us and our products, and we wanted to take the opportunity to provide clarification.

Item the first:

When you write us and tell us your “Omni” won't work, it makes us cry like little girls who just finished “Bridge to Terabithia” for the first time.

It is true that all of our product names do involve the word Omni. You know, it's kind of our “thing”. We also greatly enjoy InterCapping words together. It gets AnnoyingSometimes, but that's just the way WeRoll.

However, without the product name that follows the “Omni” part, for all we know, you're talking about O.M.N.I, the Opportunities for Micronutrient Interventions. And we totally can't help you with that.

Item the second:

No, we don't make that OCR scanning thing. Some of you don't believe us, and you get a little irritated, especially during Macworld when it's 4 PM on the last day of the show and you could swear we make that OCR software, but I promise: we don't.

Item the third:

We can neither confirm nor deny dressing this dog in a shirt and taking his photo. It doesn't seem like something we would do, especially during business hours.

THING THE FOURTH

It's OmniGraffle. Graffle. OmniGraffle. Not OmniGraph. Not OmniGraffi. Not OmniGraffo. And under no circumstances whatsoever is it OmniGIRAFFE.

Giraffe:

null

Graffle:

null

Yes, it's a weird name, but if you can say “Shrimp chips” three times fast, then by golly you can say “OmniGraffle”.

(Heh. Made you try. Now do “Toy boat”!)

I think that's all for now. Once again, thank you for joining us, and tune in next time when we address the burning question: What does Omni do when the network goes down? (Hint: some people write dorky blog posts!)
