+ - Google Kevlar-wraps its trans-Pacific fiber cables to protect from shark attacks-> 1

Submitted by Brandon Butler
Brandon Butler (2829853) writes "As an ode to Shark Week: Sharks have been known to show an appetite for fiber cables underwater, and last week a Google official said to prevent sharks from wreaking havoc on the company's trans-Pacific fiber lines, it wraps them in Kevlar. It's believed that the emission of electrical currents from the fiber piping is mistaken by sharks occasionally as prey."
