Mike Allen Finally Discovers LMGTFY

In Playbook today, Politico’s Mike Allen writes:

NOW THERE’S A GRACIOUS, EFFICIENT WAY TO RESPOND when a dopey co-worker asks you something they obviously should have Googled (“Hey, what time does Tunnicliff’s open on Saturdays?”). Two Northern Virginians have opened a website called Let Me Google That For You: “This is for all those people who find it more convenient to bother you with their question rather than google it for themselves. … Inspired during a lunch conversation.” Type in the query, and LMGTFY creates a link. When Claude clicks it, the query types out like on Google’s Super Bowl ad, then an invisible hand shows him how to slide the mouse pointer down and click “Search.” http://lmgtfy.com

But there has been a “gracious, efficient way to respond” for a while now. Let Me Google That For You has been around since at least 2009. Perhaps Allen would have known that if he had gone here.
