Playstation Network Got You Paranoid? Find Comfort In Google’s Arms


As I’m sure you’ve heard/experienced, over the weekend there was a massive security breach on the Playstation Network that single handedly crippled their online service and exposed all your most personal and intimate information. I’ve been hearing a lot of chatter through my Twitter about people wondering just how secure their information is with other big companies, namely Google.

We all know Google has more information on us than the FBI. Just try doing a simple image search for your name and you can bring up all kinds of skeletons you may have thought were buried deep in your closet.

When it comes to your Android handset, all of your contacts, credit card information, addresses, even pics are all stored in Google’s cloud somewhere and you want to be assured they’re safe. So where exactly is this cloud? It better be a white fluffy cloud with laser trip wires and 7-inch steel walls to protect all the information Google has on me. Oddly enough, that’s not too far from the truth. Come take a tour with me into the Google Data Center (keep your eyes peeled for a T-1000).

All I know is after watching this video, this will definitely be the first place I run to when the zombie apocalypse breaks out. How about you? Is your mind put at a little more ease knowing that not even Tom Cruise could break into Google’s Data Center?

  1. lol Chris, I didn’t know you were a big fan of Indian movies!! That pic above is from the movie Robot!

    Btw.. Cool video!

    1. Probably some of the most epic scenes ever recorded on film. =D

      1. Indian films actually aren’t that bad. Even with sometimes their production not being all that fancy compared to Hollywood, I find some of their story lines to be a bit more engaging than Hollywood’s BS lately.

  2. the pic used is from a film called robo …..indian film …:-)

    1. You guys are on top of it today! =)

  3. Well I believe in Google, Sony is slowly losing me

    1. I was actually surprised at how pissed people were JUST by PSN being down. Then, the exposed information sent people overboard. =/

  4. fake

  5. Awesome! How did you find that video? I definitely like the idea of “The Crusher”. And a fortress during the zombie apocalypse? For sure.

    1. That guy has the BEST. JOB. EVER. =D

  6. Aish is so hot.

    Anyhow, most of what the video highlighted was physical security. Don’t think the hackers who hacked PSN really care bout that. They are looking for holes in the software implementation of solutions (and there are always holes).

    I’m piss mad at PSN being down for such a long time but I have already taken precautionary measures such as reporting my card as lost/stolen.

    1. exactly, I’m glad Google physically protects data but that video has no bearing on the way the PSN was virtually attacked. Although I’m sure Google has that pretty well covered too.

  7. At least give’credit you didn’t find this the other tech site did

  8. BTW, Sony was hacked last Tuesday or Wednesday, so that on Wednesday night they pulled the plug on PSN.

  9. If people are concerned about what Google or any other company has on you in this day and age then do what Bin Laden does. Hide. Don’t use a cell phone and by all means don’t use a smartphone. Why do you think we call them that? Don’t post crap on Facebook, as a matter of fact don’t have a facebook account. Don’t have a twitter account. Don’t connect to the internet with your machine at home. Buy stuff with cash at every place you go. Burn or shred all mail that you get at home. Keep your money under your pillow, etc. etc. etc.

    If you don’t do any of the above things and you do not heed my warning then don’t complain when sh!t about you is loose on the net. You deserve it for not been diligent enough about your privacy.

    1. I actually do most of the above to a degree…

  10. Currently searching for where I can apply for the “Crusher” job..

  11. “Every Google datacenter has a room filled with black people to meet required corporate diversity standards.”

    stole this from youtube.com’s comments

    1. lol thats messed up

    2. That was something I noticed during the video as well

    3. lol.. i said the same thing to my self.. I was like, “why is there all black people? where are others?” lol.. dats just mad messed up.

  12. My biggest problem with the PSN issue is it cripples Hulu plus and makes logging into Netflix annoying, since both apps insist you be logged into PSN to use them (Netflix will still let you watch after you have attempted to log in a few times and canceled out, but Hulu won’t). Why the hell do I HAVE to be logged into a PSN account to use either of those services anyway? Ridiculous.

  13. Am I the only one who noticed the pic is a shot from the Bollywood movie “Endhiran?”

    1. Nah…. that’s Google’s Data Center. o_O

  14. pic is from Tamil Film “Endhiran” Actor – Rajnikanth and actress – Aishwarya rai ….

  15. the government has unrestricted access to the information stored by google apps they failed to mention that, pieces of shit
