I assume the yellow and green pipes carry urine and phlegm, respectively.

That are part of the series of tubes that carry the data to the NSA and CIA.

"Cables at the data center in The Dalles, Ore., like the cables at all Google data centers, are organized by hue."


Hue has one incredibly mundane job but he must be the master of organization.

Hue was a rock, the best tailgunner in the outfit. Buddy came unglued.

Each server has four switches connected by a different colored cable. Google keeps the colors the same throughout our data center so it knows which one to replace in case of failure.

I thought Google was supposed to be a challenging place to work.

Cool photos, goes along well with the XKCD what if? from last Tuesday.  As a completely random aside, did anyone else have the page reload to be focused on a lower and lower point after every click to switch to the next photo?

Well, that was one of the most painful slideshow experiences ever.  Thanks for having such a shiatty website, Forbes....

There was supposed to be a slideshow in the link instead of just a random photo of some Wonka colored tubes?

I'm pretty sure the yellow pipe is Mountain Dew.

Well done Forbes, why not just link directly to google and better slideshow and larger photos?

Also, annoying slideshow featuring massive banner ads at the top, at no extra charge

Mario Bros. theme music started playing in my head when I saw the first picture with the pipes.

So they're just like all other data centers ?
