TechCrunch: Facebook To Build Its Second Data Center To The Tune Of $450 Million: Apple is building a $1 billion facility that’s expected to be finished this year. Google and IBM also have data centers in the state.
During the first dot com boom, people bought servers. And then Amazon web services killed the idea. You don't need to buy servers, we got them, they said, a ton of them. But now companies like Facebook that are not in the data center business end up with these huge, humongous huge data centers.

Larry Ellison plus eating up of Sun plus nanotechnology equals data centers that are the size of servers. At that point anyone could launch a company the size of Facebook is today, just like anyone can launch a web company today. You simply log into where your servers are, which are in Seattle, I am telling you on a need to know basis.

Hanuman: She was looking around, and it was sunset so she said, “Any fruit which is as red and as ripe as the sun planet, you can eat it.” Then she left, and he was very hungry. He thought and then said, “Why as red as sun and as ripe as sun? Why not just eat sun?” So he jumped up, and straight away went to the sun planet and jumped on the chariot of Lord Suryadeva. He was extending his hands, and he took the whole sun planet and reduced it to a small ball and put it in his mouth.
