Microsoft Releases “Sloob” Instead of “Slola”

I’ve already whined about "Why Microsoft Engineers Should Not Name Products" — Microsoft employees write brilliant software; but with names like Snarf, Phlat and Glee. . .they could obviously use some help naming their software.
Recently one of my favorite Microsoft technologies, Silverlight, announced their version 3.0 update. One new cool feature is Silverlight’s "Out of Browser" experience called "Sloob!"
The "Out of Browser" feature is also known as an "Off Line Application" — so I guess the new Silverlight feature could have been called "Slola" (^_^)
