    Microsoft sinks servers in the ocean

    And no, they haven't gone crazy. A large part of the energy server farms use is for cooling. By putting it into the cold North Sea, they won't need cooling. The downside is that they won't be able to access them for repair. I guess they aren't retrievable.
