Better dead herring than red herring?
Boy, I really hope those 15% of people who chose the last option are kidding. (These days, you can't tell. Satire is dead.)

Re: Better dead herring than red herring?
@Joe I'm with you. It makes you want to pull your hair out. Thanks to social media it's like the entire world is one big game of telephone now. Hopefully, it's a joke but we both know it's probably not.

Re: Better dead herring than red herring?
Of course it was the Russians! Don't you watch "The Americans"? It's always the Russians...

:D

I do think Google got into a business they had no business being in. I believe they thought it would be easy for them and subscriptions would soar. I suspect they didn't account for the bureaucratic machine.

Re: Better dead herring than red herring?
@Michelle: Indeed. It's a popular trope now. Russian hackers are the new bogeymen.

I've been making this observation/prediction for months now, and it's especially on point with the holiday almost upon us: My prediction for top Halloween costume this year is "Sexy Russian Hacker".

Re: Better dead herring than red herring?
@afwriter: Making it all the more silly: IMHO, the populace is only so concerned of foreign intrusion into politics because such a controversial figure got elected.

Compare: Bill Clinton, love him or hate him, was not a controversial candidate -- and not many people these days remember Charlie Trie...

It's like childhood all over again. Russians are the bad guys on TV again.

 

So...the "dude in a t-shirt and jeans" costume will sell out fast with fake product descriptions.

Re: Better dead herring than red herring?
..well, we need to make sure we maintain an "even Keel" and not be "blown away" by the stuff....the coverage over this stuff is hillarious (and tragic)..and the real things are not being talked about..simple things like say automation in the workplace...or simple things like people being hungry (without getting too overtly political of course).... :)

Meh
On a related note: I suspect many have given up on getting Google Fiber where they live. I know I have. I feel like they approached the whole thing with a great many plans only to find it's actually harder than they thought.

Re: Meh
> "I suspect many have given up on getting Google Fiber where they live..."

Very true. My city was even on Google Fiber's short list a few years.. and then the plans were basically shelved, which was very disappointing. Google hasn't had a great reputation for maintaining projects for the long-term that don't seem to be panning out in the short term. Projects get killed quickly.. and seemingly without much thought to the loyalty of users lost.

It was actually just one Russian? Sergey Brin is a Russian-born American...
