I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. hahah $25K.   Google employees flush $25K worth of water in the bathroom during lunch breaks each day.   Chump change, suckas

    1. 25.000 dollars worth of water is about 6.250.000 liters of water. Divide that by the 32.467 google employees, and you get that each google employee every day flushes down 193 liters of water during lunch breaks. I find that a bit hard to believe. 

  2. Google fined 25k for unauthorized data collecting and NONE of the people they were illegally collecting data from will see a dime. 

    sound’s more like a payoff….
