    HA! View the Data Center on Street View in Google Maps and there's a Stormtrooper standing guard inside! Classic!

    Google Faked Some Of Its Data Center Images?

    Remember the story we posted about Google's datacenters? It would seem at least some of the images they used on the website have been manipulated. Look at the image below, taken straight from the website, it has been mirrored using photo editing software. If you cut this image in half, flip it and lay it on the other half, it is identical. While we have no idea why Google would bother doing something like that (hiding UFOs), this is definitely interesting.

    Then surely, they would have built it symmetrical?

    An odd choice to PhotoShop the pic since in reality the rows look like they do at 1m02 in Explore a Google data center with Street View - YouTube

    I wish our datacentre cabs were as neatly cabled... it drives me mad. Don't get me going about @Domino and his tangle of cables either!
