When Google Calls

Well, the Gods of Computing briefly smiled on me, and then got all frowny and stabby.... Google called and wanted to consider me for a position once more. I had to go through another phone interview, and after apparently failing that, got a second chance, which I then failed again. So the advice I have for folks interviewing with Google is: Don't implement the naive solution to the problem - that appears to be less-than-acceptable. Discuss the naive solution while you think of a more elegant solution, one that uses a suitable data structure
