What's next? Maybe for a nominal fee they can get the City name changed to "Google View"

Shouldn't "See related story on Page 1" have a hyperlink?

"Abe-Koga said environmentally conscious Google will be able to fulfill its goals"
"the site appears to maintain some of the highest concentrations of Volatile Organic Compounds"

Yet again, Abe-Koga is off by a full 180.

I am glad I don't work there.

When Google expands on Moffett Field they should build a pedestrian/bicycle/auto bridge that connects the Google buildings on Shoreline to Moffett Field, then open up the Ellis Street gate for Google employees to access the Quad buildings (and hopefully the former-Nokia buildings, etc.) without having to go all the way around the long way.

What a blessing to have Google based in Mountain View.
