Google is Ubiquitous

Our power company installed a "smart meter" some months ago, one feature of which is online monitoring of power usage.

Turns out it has to be "activated" and that is not a service provided by the power company. The power company sends the data to... Guess who. Indeed it does. The monitoring is then provided on a website which has a Google url.
