The G Team as they are called, Nicole Wong, the “Decider”; Andrew McLaughlin, global public-policy director; and Kent Walker, general counsel will all decide when to unplug what for Google.
Keep this in Mind:
Google estimates 13 hours of content are uploaded every minute.
YouTube is available in more than 20 countries and in 14 languages.
and this is just the beginning...

The Pentagon confirmed this month that the cost of the fleet of 28 new super-sophisticated helicopters has jumped from $6.1 billion when the contract was signed in 2005 to $11.2 billion today.
Fuselage: Made of high-strength reinforced aluminum alloy, it can withstand crash impacts in excess of 15 Gs.
Engine: The VH-71 can shift from three 3,000-horsepower turboshaft engines to two, whereas the twin-engine Sea King must land if one engine fails.
Rotor: Five flared rotor blades increase the craft´s efficiency by up to 30 percent over conventional designs when flying at 150-knot cruising speed.
Defense System: The VH-71s, like the EH101s they are modeled on, will probably feature radar-warning receiv-ers, laser detectors and flare dispensers to deflect anti-aircraft missiles.
Cabin: Measuring eight feet wide and 25 feet long, the cabin will include a lavatory and a galley kitchen. The fold-down stair spares the president from ducking during photogenic entrances and exits.

Microsoft just announced that anyone with infomation for the "Conficker" worm which has infected millions of Microsoft Windows PCs over the past two months will be award $250,000!
A computer worm is a self-replicating computer program. It uses a network to send copies of itself to other nodes (computers on the network) and it may do so without any user intervention. Unlike a virus, it does not need to attach itself to an existing program. Worms almost always cause at least some harm to the network, if only by consuming bandwidth, whereas viruses almost always corrupt or modify files on a targeted computer.
Deadly Computer Worms:
"Conficker" current worm. Microsoft offer $250,000 reward.
"Sasser" author arrested Microsoft paid $250,000
"Blaster" remain at large.
"MyDoom" remain at large.
"Sobig" remain at large.

Monash University in Australia are working on microbot motors designed to swim through the human bloodstream.
Researcher took from 1966 sci-fi flick, Fantastic Voyage concept and turn it into a reality.
The micro-motor would carry tiny cameras and sensor equipment and could access parts of the body, like a stroke-damaged artery in the brain, that are beyond the reach of catheters.
So anyone would like a microbot with 1295 rpm swimming up your bloodstream?
