    12. Google takes privacy very seriously and has structured the agreement to provide ads through Google's AdSense program in a way that ensures that personally identifiable information of individual Internet users will not be shared, combined, or merged by the companies. We have designed it so that both companies have stayed within existing privacy and data policies, such as Google's policy regarding logs anonymization after 18 months.
    13. Juniper has been searching for a CEO for some time now...it just happened to overlap with what was going on at Yahoo. Yahoo was not a trigger for Kevin's departure and his candidacy wasn't linked to what would or would not go on at Yahoo.
    14. I think that Yahoo management was pathetic.
    15. As it processes the information, it's building an associative network of people and places and events.
