That there are coordinates to the whereabouts of six subs according to the PC World article, including a new type never photographed before, also shows the automated nature of Google.

Is Google heading us into the Terminator-type future? Their planned purchase of DoubleClick has raised privacy issues, but let’s forget about them sharing the information with anyone else… what can they ultimately do with it themselves.
