"Interplanetary Reporting Comes To Google Analytics"

From Google Analytics:

"At Google we like to create solutions for the future. And we imagine a future where web use won’t be restricted simply to Earth. Rather, people will want to visit their favorite sites while cruising around the rings of Saturn with friends or relaxing at the (inevitable) Mercury tanning facility.

"When the galaxy is our playground, marketers, analysts and webmasters will want to understand location use beyond Earth. For example, if you had a chain of taco stands and noticed many users visiting your website from the Mars outpost, well, that might help you make a business case to begin expanding your business to serve Mars colonists.

"That’s why today we’re announcing a sneak preview of our new Interplanetary Reports. While currently you only get a partial picture of website visitor location, we want to expand beyond Earth to help you understand visitor activities from neighboring stars and planets. You’ll also be able to drill down on each planet to see greater detail. For example, which colony or outpost your visitors came from similar to the city drill down available for Earth today."

That's great. I've wondered for some time which planets are visiting the JTI.

By the way, I got that from "April Fools in the Tech World 2012 Round-up," Check it out. There's funny stuff, like the Complete YouTube Collection on DVD, delivered to you by trucks.

I thought taco bell was already from a different world, as in 3rd. world, like the 3rd. rock from the sun.

Hahahaha. Good one, Hale. Now martians will be collecting data on us to know what green cheese they should advertise on the sidebar.

I thought hale-bopp posted this stuff in the past, too. But I did it this time. He's probably busy splitting an atom in space.

Sorry orbs, my error. It smacked of hale, lol.
