If they are not building some kind of awesome space craft, I'll be sad.


#3

A sadpear, no doubt.

One can only hope that the Googleplex 9000 blasts off soon.

Who cares about spaceships when... offshore data... you mean data stored in international waters? Data with no government oversight!


#5

Floating Google Glass showroom.


#6

It is a temporal disruption generator to keep Page from aging until Google research succeeds in their life-extension quest.


#7

There is one in the harbor in Portland, Maine as well:

And apparently two more somewhere...


#8

Three barges are required to properly focus the temporal disruption field...
Rumor is that Apple is ready to slap a cease and desist order on them since the technology is based on Job's reality distortion field.

Yea, must be Google. Couldn't possibly be a front for the NSA.


#10

Google is a front for the NSA.


#11

Forget "the cloud;" I send my data to "the sea."


#12

BoingBoing, home of the 24 hour tape delay


#13

Agreed. Liquid water has vastly more density than vapours.


#14

My bet is this is how the Borg begins.


#15

Ah, a perfect customer for my new sea-based storage solution, "Davy Jones' Locker"


#16

Finally, a real floating data haven bound for international waters. I don't count Sealand.


#17

Maybe they're planning to use OTEC to make a self-sufficient seaborne server farm.


#18

It is the frickin' "Oosh Maker" ... isn't it?


#19

In space no one can hear you search (except the NSA, of course)


#20

No, it´s a prison, a prison to send al those pesky young kids who meddle in grow up affairs, like in that book "Little Brother".

Does Cory know about it yet?
