Google’s ever-expanding empire has added another branch: subsidiary Google Energy has been granted an order by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to buy and sell energy at market rates.
Does this mean Google is set to become your power company? Not yet — instead, Google wants more control over the high energy costs of its many data centers, and also aims to become carbon neutral. A Google spokesperson told CNET: “Right now, we can’t buy affordable, utility-scale, renewable energy in our markets. We want to buy the highest quality, most affordable renewable energy wherever we can and use the green credits.”
There’s the possibility, however, that Google might become an energy provider. The same spokesperson said to CNET in January: “We don’t have any concrete plans. We want the ability to buy and sell electricity in case it becomes part of our portfolio.”

"Just like everybody else, Google's disappointed by the industry's lack of innovation so they've decided just to do it themselves."

Oh Dear God in Heaven, why, oh why, could you not have stricken Phil with a vocal cord injury instead? I don't think I've ever read anything as recently chilling as this line: "But don't worry, I can still sing."
Now, Phil deserves his props as a drummer. In early Genesis, he was absolutely amazing and had an intuitive grasp of complex time signatures. He rocked. He drank lots. He sang backup to Peter Gabriel and ironically wore overalls on stage.
Now, sadly, it's all "Buster" soundtracks for the lot of us.
Read the painful, spine-numbing details here.

But Padovani never went completely away. As a performer and executive, the Corsican guitarist has stayed around the music world. In 2006, he recorded a solo album, À croire que c'était pour la vie. The track "Welcome Home" features Sting on bass and Stewart on drums -- making it the first recording of the original Police line-up in three decades.
"Welcome Home," along with other tracks, can be heard on Padovani's MySpace page. How does it sound? Drop a comment here.
Padovani also joined The Police for a guest moment in the lights at the close of their 2007 reunion tour.
