.. but for reasons like this, this is why (on balance) I still love the company.

 

 

Google has launched giant balloons into the stratosphere in a trial attempt to provide internet access to the entire planet.

The release of the large balloons is the culmination of 18-months work on what Google has dubbed 'Project Loon.'

Yup, I know they aren't likely to be doing it for altrusistic reasons and it's one way to grow their businesss expoentially, but still. You have to had it to them, Google are still truly entrepeneurial despite being a mega corp.http://www.itv.com/news/2013-06-15/google-project-loon-launch-balloons-to-provide-internet-access-in-rural-areas-in-new-zealand/
