Subject Re: finding a new name that isn't PhoneGap

When I read your messages and saw the name "Yaya" I immediately
thought on "Mobi Dick". But given the fact that the meaning of the
second part of this name has probably changed a bit since 1850, it it
is not a good choice :-) Anyway, a Whale as mascot would be cool.
