That's one of the first things that jumped out at me too. While there was a miniature monolith on the moon which started the story, HAL was not introduced yet.
Bacon or "bacon flavor"? That's a big difference.
Two issues I see:
- The advertisers (not Google) may be targeting men
- There are more advertisements for women-only products (makeup, fashion, etc.). The ad algorithm sees a more specific match for the demographic and displays a woman's ad rather than a generic, anyone ad.
They've been bundling the Ask toolbar with the Java installer for years now. It sounds like they are just switching to Yahoo instead - or maybe both. The article doesn't say.
This isn't a Chrome issue. This is a Java issue.
If they are only having problems with the hardware, why not just put an Amiga emulator on a new computer?
For that much money, I'm assuming they are replacing more than the computer that controls the HVAC, they are probably replacing the HVAC system itself. Neither the article or the linked video make that clear.
I've never seen the Bing toolbar bundled with anything (including any Microsoft products). As far as I can tell, it's a 100% opt-in manual download.
Of course there are intelligence agencies in Europe. The difference is that no European country conducts anything resembling the systematic highly intrusive data collection that NSA does.
Making that statement means one of three things: you are naive, you are stupid, or you are a troll.
I guess you and your fellow European citizens had better grab your pitchforks and torches because every major European country has an NSA equivalent - UK and Germany are notable examples.
I think you missed the word "country" in the question.
The American cities that are delivering best-in-the-world speeds at bargain prices are precisely the cities that aren't relying on Verizon, AT&T, Comcast, Time-Warner, etc. to run their infrastructure. In Kansas City, Google built a state-of-the-art fiber optic network largely just to prove a point. In Chattanooga and Lafayette, the government did it. At the moment, the US federal government could issue 5-year bonds at a 1.58 percent interest rate and make grants to cities interested in following Chattanooga and Lafayette down that path. But it doesn't happen, because while broadband incumbents don't want to spend the money it would take to build state-of-the-art fiber networks, they are happy to spend money on lobbying.

Based on most job postings I've read, I'd recommend about 10+ years of experience for an entry level position.
