They need a fleet of planes to transport their robot army more quickly to the major cities.
Google's new jet - corporate air force for emergency comm.?...
Now, I'm a little skeptical about Google's purposes about their acquisitions of late, but I can see a good reason for the new Boeing jet that the Goog purchased: consider a mobile broadband/ad hoc "communication lift" effort for areas in desperate need...
Imagine, a city of more than 1.5 million internet users that all of a sudden suffer a catastrophic communication meltdown (da-duuuuhhhh!). Oh, wait - is it a bird? Superman? Time Warner? No - it's the Google 700 MHz emergency mobile broadband fleet here to create a tightly knit and astoundingly fast wireless communication network to bring people back into the glow of their LCD monitors.
Loudspeaker: The wireless network is up (echo, echo...), go back to the light (echo, echo...)
Little girl: Thanks Google - you helped my find my new puppy online!
Broadband Lift Commander (BLC): Another fine job completed team!
okay, okay - I jest...a little. It could seriously be used in post-natural disaster areas. I'm just sayin', connect the dots, ya know?
