Yojimbo

Bare Bones Software apparently has a new product in store:

Yojimbo

According to IMDb, Yojimbo in a film from 1961 by Akira Kurosawa in which “A crafty ronin comes to a town divided by two criminal gangs and decides to play them against each other to free the town.”

What could this new application be? A file comparison tool? A benchmark tool? You guess.

I think you’re being too methodical in trying to figure this out. Look at the icon and have a closer look at the name.

Yojimbo -> Yo, Jimbo!

It’s probably some sort of chat or notification tool.

But the name sort of sucks. Despite the great movie, “Yôjimbô” (用心棒) simply means “bodyguard”.
