So will the corporate campus change its name from the Googleplex to the Alphabet Blocks?

Patrick, your comment didn't trigger a notification; sorry for the belated publication.

Google Mail = Gmail
Alphabet Mail = AlphaMail

Yes, I figured that was the source of "AlphaMail" -- but didn't anyone say, "Hey, this is a homophone with 'Alpha Male' -- maybe we should call it something else?"

OK, comicalness!
