According to the Wikipedia page on Quotation Mark Glyphs
This is the right hand quote or the "closed" quote signal as opposed to the left hand side "open" quote symbol
hence, this is the symbol to stop talking as opposed to inviting the start of a conversation
I know it is a small thing
However based on the "Icon Ambulance" post a few years ago where he extolled Steve Jobs for his attention to detail I have to think this would be a UI element that would not have passed muster with him.
Now I am not advocating a "What would Steve do?" approach at the Big G, however I would say perhaps the closed quotes symbol may not be the message you really wanna send with the icon for your unified messaging service.

So this was just climbing to the base camp, not the summit, but still impressive...
And what have you accomplished today?
The 1924 Mercedes Targa Florio
It was built and designed to run in the famous race called the Targa Florio in the mountains of Sicily near Palermo
They took an engine out of a WWI bomber and put it in a light chassis so it would go real fast as well as be highly mechanically reliable.

My guess is they sold out decades ago

Reading William Craig's 1973 book Enemy at the Gates it does convey the true story of the battle that literally turned the tide on the Eastern Front
The German Sixth Army led by Fredrich Paulus
Marshall Zhukov and the Russian counter attack and encirclement tactic so often used by the Germans themselves
Ever since reading this book I believe that WWII was really fought and won between the Volga and the Don between the fall of 1942 and Winter of 1943
Russia lost 20 million in WWII. Germany also lost 20 million. The United States suffered less than a million casualties. Russia was literally begging Roosevelt and Churchill to execute the Normandy invasion in 1942 to draw German focus and forces away from Russia.
It was not until June 4, 1944 that the boats hit Omaha beach. We suffered fewer casualties, but the Russians have always been bitter that the allies let them do the lion share of the fighting and the dying.
It is not surprising this Russian film beat out Hollywood films to be the #1 film in Russia (though usually Hollywood hits dominate)
I am an American and my family has served in the military for generations. But I can view this through the lens of the pragmatic and recognize the Russian angle on this is not entirely without merit.
Hope they withdraw from the Crimea soon and back down over Ukraine. So there will never again be a battle like this.

Ford wanted that as part of the acquisition and it was over that sticking point that Enzo walked. Ford was very upset and this car was built out of pure spite. It did win.
There was only one but it has gone through several colors

In November 3 1888 Bertha Benz drove with the kids 40 km to visit her folks in what is considered the world's first drive
The horseless carriage made by her husband Karl Benz was able to run on gasoline, kerosene, whiskey, rum, or pretty much anything combustible
