She uses Dropbox? Really? A VP at Google? Wonder if she requested Sergey and Larry to join so she could get an extra 512MB each.
It does sound odd, I even figured that someone like that would have a corporate-grade wifi tech costing thousands rather than off-the-shelf electronics but who knows. Maybe Google's just trying to patch things up with Apple some more like 'hey we know we ripped off your mobile OS but if it's any consolation, Marissa really likes your routers'.
I don't think it's odd that she shops at Wal-mart as people won't know her. You wouldn't even spot Eric if you walked by:http://gizmodo.com/5503004/steve-job...r-again-photos
It's only if you wear an iconic outfit like Steve would you notice right away. Plus, although the wealthy can get poor people to do the shopping for them, some of them like to stay grounded for their kids.
