Think about it.
Do I have to put <fe>markup</fe> around every blasted thing I say? Yes, it is obvious that only one of the four* possible readings yields a date that is still in the future. My point was that google seemed to be making an assumption about their readers.
"On 08/09/12 our engineers will..."
"Huh what? Why do I care what they did back on August 9?"
Matter of fact, when I first saw the topic header I thought the post was being satirical, as in "Oh. Nice of them to tell us... a month after the fact."
* Excluding the two mathematically possible but ridiculous interpretations, hence 2x2 rather than 3!
