Google Explains How Your Emails Travel to Their Destination
Google has launched Story of Send, a new website that explains how an email travels from your PC, tablet or smartphone to its destination.
The site is an interactive, animated story, showing not only the journey of your emails, but also explaining Google’s efforts to keep viruses and spam out of your inbox.
Google also shows how it saves energy and keeps its data centers up to high environmental standards.
“Our data centers are some of the most efficient in the world, using 50% less energy than typical data centers,” Google says on the site. “Whenever we can, we buy green power from wind farms near our data centers (…) This, along with efficiency and investing in other projects, helps us eliminate our impact on climate change,” Google claims.
