    Microsoft is gonna ruin the ocean

    http://money.cnn.com/2016/02/01/tech...ter/index.html

    Microsoft is looking into building huge data centers in the ocean. Data centers put off loads of heat so building them in cold water will save them tons of money in the long run.
    What?

      "Microsoft claims that the underwater data centers' net heat will be zero, since it is completely powered by the ocean itself -- a confusing, but scientifically accurate, theory. It also found that the noise its underwater data center produced was drowned out by nearby shrimp and crabs. The data centers are also built from recyclable materials, and Microsoft believes that the total carbon footprint of underwater data centers will be "dramatically lower" than current land-based centers."

      Bill Gates is saving the planet! He should get an Al Gore award or something.

        Whenever I go diving I wish that those shrimp and crabs would shut up.

          We have to keep the wheels of progress turning. It's too late to stop now.
          I don't know.

            Yeah his underwater data centers won't ruin the oceans and google's underwater data centers wont ruin the oceans and maybe IBM's data centers won't ruin the ocean but eventually someone's going to have to apologize to the fish for building silicon valley 2 off the cost of Washington in the middle of (what Disney has lead me to believe is a beautiful magical) a coral reef.
            What?

              It's a good idea, that will lead to other great ideas.

              However it it will never happen.

              The he liberals are strong with the force.
              A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!

                Maybe Arial could land a job as a data processor....

                  I read this as "driving". Still more enjoyable than it should have been.
                  This sig didn't cost me any money.

                    She isn't Indian so I doubt it would work out.

                        It really isn't we that is doing it. It is places like China. Raping all the fisheries and dumping all types of shit in the ocean. Until we make them stop it will continue to go bad. It's just like the money game. They don't play fair so it is hard to compete. Hence cheap China shit.

                        Personally, I believe China is the worlds biggest enemy. I would fully behind any attempt by us and maybe a coalition of invading them and shutting there ass down. Then make them play by the same rules.

                          We didn't need all this data when I was a kid. We went to the library.

                          We did have to talk to people in person, so it wasn't all good, but the fish were safe.
                          I don't know.

                              Data processors make mad bank. She could probably but herself some bionic legs.
                              What?
