Google Tool Increases Efficiency

The Official GMail Blog had an interesting post on Wednesday about a new function to Send and Archive at the same time:
Turn on "Send & Archive" from the Labs tab under Settings, and you'll see a new button in the compose form labeled just that. The button does what it says: it sends your reply and then archives the thread with one click.
Tasty. It might actually motivate me to get my disastrous inbox in the shape I know it could be. But as far as creating an entire blog post about it? Meh.

But then the Official Google Blog went and did this six hours later:
However, after much consideration, we have with great regret decided that we need to go further and reduce the overall size of our recruiting organization by approximately 100 positions.
Google's efficiency is unmatched; not only did they make the difficult decision to send away 100 people, they apparently used a newly-developed tool to do it while simultaneously moving the records of the newly-unemployed to the Google Archive.
