    Google is starting a singular hardware unit using a former Motorola exec.

    "Google executives have fixated on uniformity. Getting consumers to have a consistent experience across every product bearing the GOOGLE name."

    1st hardware efforts not likely cell phones. Hope for future successes. Whatever the product(s), this could be significant if the Motorola guy can navigate GOOGLE politics.

    Hmm... Google just bought up another 75 acres here. On the opposite side of the industrial area from their present data centers. And there's still about 200 acres vacant in between, where the old smelter was. People have been speculating about what on earth they could fill all that land with. And will they ever actually bring any jobs to town?
