So Google has time for more than attacking your websites with black and white animals. They recently did a virtual ‘street-view’ tour of a Google data center in Lenoir, North Carolina, and managed to include some ‘easter eggs’ in the process.
Here’s the ‘video tour’ with nice audio explaining the various sections of the Street View tour:
