Google launching a new app call Gbuy apparently some web payment tools. you can imagine how google will struggle in the asian context. can't imagine the ads that i'll see on TV : Purchasing online has never been easier, just pay with your Gbuy!

Buying is easy when you have Gbuy!

ironically that's the quite the case for most in the world, especially when you have cool 'addons' with your Gbuy.

incidentally, Microsoft aptly named one of their latest app: Cibai. in line with the host of CCB applications they shaft down our throats over the years.

For educational purposes:
“GBuy” sounds phonetically similar to “Cheebye”. According to the Urban Dictionary, Cheebye is a vulgar Hokkien (Chinese Dialect) term for:
1) vagina, cunt, pussy, etc
2) expressing something or someone who is an extreme degree of damned.

It is often used by Chinese hooligans (Beng or Lian) in a conversation:
ah lian: that mr pleasemeh damn cheebye sia!
ah beng: why?!
ah lian: he touch my cheebye lor!
ah beng: WAH! CHEEBYE!!!

Anyone remembers this pizza eatery that offered delivery services with the mnemonic call number 7484848, meant to sound like "send for it, for it, for it"?

Guess they too didn't have any Mandarin-speaking people in their marketing team.

PS. Sorry, only Mandarin speakers can understand this.
