Google's CEO Larry Page is back at work after being laid low for a few weeks by an undisclosed illness or bug that caused him to lose his voice. The search giant's chairman Eric Schmidt told reporters on Thursday that Page had returned to Google at the start of this week. "He's still recovering. Larry is doing much better," …

One day somebody will produce a Phone OS that can download official update patches for stupidities like this, rather than leaving the user hoping against hope that a) it'll be fixed in the next full release and b) that release will be made available to their device. I'd buy it.
Until then, rooting and applying some charitable hacker's patch will have to do.
It could be. The same bug afflicts Google Navigator on my HTC Desire. Luckily most of what that daft nasal-sounding bint has to say can be ignored but it'd be nice not to have to turn the music down to hear her.

Is going to be the next news item?
Maybe Google is going for the same strategy used by Teddy Roosevelt ar the beggining of 20th century: speak softly and carry a big stick.
Maybe his mute button accidentally got pressed?
