✈ United’s Retro, courtesy of Google

I’m heading to California en route to OSCON (where I’ll be speaking on Wednesday at 5:20pm about open source continuity – use code os10fos to get a 20% discount if you’ve still to buy your ticket). I just got a voicemail from the airline delivered as a transcription by Google Voice and it’s definitely trying to put me in a California retro mood:

Hello. This is united with an easy update. Departure reminder message. United flight number 9:55. You will be departing on time, and hence. Yorty 5 hey m once again flight, yeah 9:55. Yum. Yeah, London Heathrow. 2 Yeah Francisco, California. Yawn. You July. Hey extinct. Yeah, we’ll be departing on time, and hence. Yorty 5. Hey M, flight information is subject to change.

  1. It sounds like Google is putting their own spin on the flight update message. The version I get here in the US isn’t nearly as cool, but then again, mine is delivered directly by United.

  2. If only their in-flight service were so laid-back!
