In one of the weirdest stories of the week, it looks like Google is building something super-secret near Treasure Island, just off the coast of San Francisco. And boy is it big!

When CNET reporters went down there to investigate they learned that a company called "By and Large LLC" was the newest tenant. Is this a shell company set up by Google to work on something in secret? Could the name be an homage to the fictional company Buy N Large from the 2008 Pixar film WALL-E? And if so, should we be at all concerned?

Only time will tell. But if Google has plans to set up an artificial island nation in international waters, I'd say the least they can do is build us a WALL-E or two to help clean up the mess we've been left with here on land.

Though I'm sure if Google is building WALL-E, Apple's EVE shouldn't be too far behind.
