Private Cloud generators going for cheap now

I'm very tempted to buy!

What Google does with spam - the inside story.

Just as I arrived at Google this morning, I discovered what *really* happens to the 5bn-odd spam emails that Postini (or more accurately GMS, Google message security) catches each day for 100k businesses and 20m users (oh... not counting gmail users...)

Once caught, the spam is packed densely in these yellow boxes (that resembles some nuclear waste removal boxes), and are then taken away by these friendly people, to be stored somewhere where the sun does not ever shine.
