Google "Google calls itself one of the world's largest hardware makers. For the past 10 years, the web giant has designed much of the gear driving the massive data centers that underpin its web empire, but it treats the particulars of this hardware operation as the most important of trade secrets. That's why the Pluto Switch is so intriguing." It's easy to forget large web companies like Google actually design and build their own hardware.

Google is so unlike other companies ... makes you really wonder if this isn't proof they're actually working with aliens.

Still speculation, not proof... however, looking at what the Soviets designated as Sputnik 3 ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Спутник-3.jpg ) probably dispels most of any doubts.
