Did anyone else find it funny that the student mourning Google's potential departure was named "Bing"?

"The attackers may have penetrated elaborate computer security systems and obtained crucial corporate data and software source codes, though Google said it did not itself suffer losses of that kind."

So, did they get some trufax or not? Cause it kind of sounds like Andrew Jacobs just made that up…

Folks, you realize that the systems at Google that were supposedly compromised were surveillance systems they use to fulfill warrant requests?

So the system Google uses to narc on users was compromised by the Chinese government? How did they know how to target that? That's far from random.

Very scary.
