Google's data centers are guarded by Stormtroopers! Google's letting us virtually tour one of its data centers using Street View now. Naturally, this means that we'll see all sorts of weird things — like this odd security detail, which +Nicolai Imset noticed.
You can take a virtual walk around the spot guarded by this Stormtrooper — who appears to be standing around Google's data center in Lenoir, NC — here: http://goo.gl/4ZxpT
"Yep, I used to be on a Star Destroyer guarding ships, but now, Here I am... I guess from now on, I will stay on the right frequency when they call me... Now to keep my eye out for the droids we are looking for...Nope, nothing here!!"
The Death Star was often depicted as AT&T's logo improperly reversed wherein the light spot on the globe went black. Verizon had James Earl Jones spokesperson, the voice of Darth Vader. Now Google has stormtroopers guarding data centers. Too weird for too long to be a coincidence.
Phhhfff. Google's stormtrooper are whimps. Their blaster rifles are generations behind the E-11's. Don't even get me started on the detonators... you would expect them to be code key thermal but no, not even close, their not even Baradium-core!!!
The R2 toy is a good idea. I have one and they actually make for a good room guard. It learns the layout of the space its in and will wander around and shout a alarm when it comes across someone. It even works in the dark.
,for a bunch of computer geeks y'all are not well versed in STAR WARS THESE GUYS ARE THE CLONES ordered by the late Jedi Master Sy Fa Dios and now commanded by Count Du Koo, and the syth Lord Palpatine. Thiis is the nerds religion.
Unarmed stormtrooper is not going to impress anyone. Indirect heavy turbolaser fire from a Star Destroyer in orbit would take out the servers as well, so a helmet radio doesn't help. The astromech may be in guardian mode and actually useful. I am disappointed in Google - might as well put the Hutts in charge there.
