So I just tried something I rarely attempt or get to do. I went to a island in the Caribbean and tried to unplug for two weeks with family. And unplugging really means I get on every few days, maybe up to 4-5 days, to check for emergency customer emails and that is it.

At a very small little place on the beach. I look over and see a Google shirt drying on a rail. Turns out a Google exec that shall remain nameless was staying right next to me! Just can't get away.

But I did smile to myself when I would see him in a hammock with a iPad or iPhone.

Who said anything about being on vacation? Google goes to great lengths to get your personal data! No one said it all has to be done online... :)

google beach view ?


/////////////////////////////////

1700Z_27JAN15

G agent 1337 report to G HQ:

report of target suspect intentionally not using internet for two days is confirmed.

in addition, the following behavior was observed:

1) suspect was distracted by presence of wet t-shirt. suspect seemed mesmerized for approx 30 seconds. local wet t-shirt contest for G interns was not a factor.

2) suspect intermittently grins when no one else is nearby. covert iphone and ipad pictures showing this curious behavior have been forwarded to tech intel dept.


recommendation: continued study of target suspect. thorough profile workup may require two more weeks of field duty.

Perhaps he is researching animal names for a new update. Someone has to do it.

Or maybe they've decided to do away with the animal names. Next up- the Rum Punch Update!

I was in hawaii a few years ago, and driving on a single lane path. Behind me was a google maps car. I felt like I was bing stalked.

Bingo. I was trying to think of something in P, although the Punch Algorithmic Upgrade does have a certain nice ambiguity to it.

You need a vacation :)
