Computer people are great at coming up with clever quips and phrases. One of Paul Kimmel's favorites is the term "syntactic sugar" meaning something that, like sweets, isn't necessary, but tastes good. That's what the My feature is -- syntactic sugar. The difference between the sugary gooey foods you might eat and the My feature is that My is better for you.
