And here's a fun find from the crew at Sesame; they found a little known video clip of Cookie Monster singing about Google (rhyming it with bugle) way back in 1982 — 16 years before our company even existed."

This is amazing to me. I have no category in my brain for three or more books in a single week!
Does anyone out there have a wave profile? What do you think about it? What do you use it for?
