I watched Chronicle on Netflix last week?
That electricity isn't free, buddy!
But not Shaw...
Heroes was fun during the first season..
I like to think of Walter White as TV's version of a super hero/conflicted protagonist.
What can you learn by resolving every single dns query from someone using an internet connected machine?
Quite a bit.
Imagine the scary amount of information Google knows about people who use their service. Especially combined with the fact that almost every site out there now uses Google Analytics and/or Google Advertisements.
I realize it sounds very tin foil but intercepting all DNS queries can give you a pretty good fingerprint of a user.
I wonder if the real reason they kept this on life support for so long was to enjoy 6+ months of DNS queries for 4mil-300 thousand users?
Seems like an excellent opportunity to gather a large amount of intelligence without any messy subpoenas or warrants.

The announcement includes the line:
"...allows Google Compute Engine to give you 50% more compute for your money than with other leading cloud providers"
And we know who "other leading cloud providers" are! A full price table is available and from this, for example, a single core image with 3.75GB and 420Gbytes of storage is $0.145 per hour, which is a lot more power than the same rate would buy at AWS.
Pretty true since there are many 360's and AppleTV's that might as well have Netflix written on them instead of their respective first party logos.
Also any of the Heinlein juvenile books.
Have Spacesuit Will Travel is probably the reason I'm the person I am today.
Hodor Hodor Hodor.
HBO hates money.
You're absolutely right.
I was convinced it was a systemic and complex issue but it's really just fatty's drinking soda.
I just don't believe it.
I'm pretty sure in this era you could straight up call it "Fat Ass Soda" and people would still buy it.
It would probably garner customer loyalty and fandom.
