Yet again the supplied OS on a machine should always be treated with suspicion. You don't need sinister foreign agencies, just plain straight forward monetary incentives.

Pretty good list - haven't heard Mr. Turner but enjoyed all the others.

Music Oscars from 1968 - Elmer Bernstein for Thoroughly Modern Millie and Alfred Newman & Ken Darby for Camelot.  It was Newman's 9th win, which remains the record for the most musical Oscars won.

The key to fixing knowledge graph issues?  An offer of free doughnuts.

Great handling of a PR nightmare by Greggs here.
High street bakery Greggs avoided a PR nightmare after a spoof of its logo went viral on social media. On Google's search results, an image with the slogan "providing **** to scum for 70 years" appeared for the company instead of its "Always Fresh. Always Tasty" tagline. Hackers also reportedly targeted the bakery's Wikipedia page, before it was quickly taken down.

Did you have a look at Web Development best practices from Google? Awesome resource for beginners and very useful for experts:

This is work in progress but we don't have to wait till it's June release. It's already in very polished usable state.
