Re: 1361: "Google Announcement"

I don't get it. I understand it, but I don't get it. Google will just try to farm data by making their DNS server amazing? That's all I get. I think it's just that 8.8.8.8 is not as well known compared to the other services, but still a large project. For the ignorant, i.e. me, what is the 8.8.8.8 ...
