Prematurely Squirted is the New Word for "Leaked"

Jaiku officially "leaked" their new symbian software. I don't care about the software, but why is an official release being called a leak by the PR team? This is like when your dad wears a jean jacket. We're going to have to drop "leaks" and move to to terminology like "Prematurely Squirted".

Hello!

Ahead of schedule, Jaiku today released its new conversation and presence application for Nokia Series 60 Smart phones, enabling people to engage in real time Jaiku conversations while mobile. The new Jaiku Nokia app also enhances the connection between people by displaying when contacts are online, the last time they were active on the phone, and in what city they're located.

As long as the Nokia phone is on, Jaiku is always running, so that the threads of conversation from your personal contacts can continue for instant viewing and participation from the phone at anytime. People can post new updates and comment on other posts and threads directly from the phone to the Web and also on your friend's phones.

The new app features a visually rich contact list that displays their buddy icons and their real time presence. Status can be broadcast to others based on the ringer settings - as long as it's on, it shows that person as being available. Nokia S60 users can also share their phone-based calendars to notify others of their upcoming events and availability.

Let me know if you have any questions! The full press release is below...

Thank you and sorry about the short notice.
