Google: Behind the Screen

I just came across an interesting documentary on YouTube. It is 47 minutes long and is a behind the scenes look into Google. I haven’t watched it yet, but being the Google-lover I am, I am very excited to watch it. If you have the time, give it a look and tell me what you think.

Update – just finished watching the video. It contained a lot of stuff I already knew, but it was still an interesting look into the world of Google. Definitely worth the watch, especially for those who are curious about the mystique of Google.

Want to Work for Google?

Want to work for Google? Who doesn’t? Google has become the Internet’s fastest growing phenomenon and their corporate culture is known as one of the best in the country. Working at Google is not easy, however. They receive over 1 million applicants each year and only hire 5,000! Talk about only hiring the best and brightest…

Check out the official Google Recruitment Video and tell me if you would like to work for Google.

Video: America’s Most Exclusive Car Club

I uploaded this video clip to YouTube earlier today. This is a short video of 5th Gear visiting “America’s most exclusive car club,” the Van Horssen Group, which is located literally 5 minutes across the freeway from me here in Scottsdale, Arizona.

According to the owner, Ron Van Horssen:

Owners of super premium automobiles often drive them less than 1,000 miles each year, making it hardly worth the time and trouble to maintain them full-time. Van Horssen Group solves this problem – and goes far beyond the limits of traditional ownership – by offering national access to magnificent vehicles, which are impeccably maintained and delivered to your locations whenever you want to drive them.

What do you guys think? Is this a practical way to drive these supercars, or would you prefer to own them individually?

The Movie 300 – Glorious Guts and Gore! Wow!

After a long and productive weekend, I saw the new movie 300 tonight. All I can say is, wow. An incredible gore-fest that certainly delivered non-stop action, amazing cinematography, and breathtaking visuals. This movie is not for those with weak stomachs – amazing action, but very gruesome. This was one of the first movies where almost every scene was shot infront of a green-screen. All of the backdrops were then rendered by computer graphics.

If you are into action, I highly recommend you check out 300. Check out this video detailing this super-intensive workout the actors had to do to give them their Greek statue look. Pretty amazing…

On another note, I have been working on a website for a new Scottsdale-based IT consulting business I will be launchiing this week. Also, finally, the new blog network I have been talking about will also launch this week. Watch for updates on that.
