Ironically, Google makes more money when users dump Android and switch to Apple's iOS.
Five devices with Android ship for every iOS device, yet Apple gets 90% of industry profits. Even Google gets 75% of its mobile ad revenue from iOS, not from its own Android. Google has succeeded wildly in spreading Android, which is now the most-widely used computing OS in the world with "More than a billion Android devices were sold in 2014, a c cording to the research firm Gartner." Is this a stable situation that can continue?
Corruption at the top levels of FIFA, the international body running major soccer events such as the World Cup, has long been an open secret. Yet FIFA seemed immune to the law. Until, the FBI stepped in.
Reuters.com: "Those arrested did not include Sepp Blatter, the Swiss head of FIFA, but included several just below him in the hierarchy of sport's wealthiest body. Lynch said the U.S. was not charging Blatter at this time. Of the 14 indicted by the U.S. Department of Justice, seven FIFA officials, including Vice-President Jeffrey Webb, were being held in Zurich."

Kind of like this abstracted version because it suits Rafa's get down-and-dirty physical style. He might need that to win this year's French. Please click and click "slideshow" at the top to enlarge. Original from BNP Indian Wells 2011 when I believe he lost the final to Djokovic.

Contextual search always on without switching modes in "M" release. Sounds great. ... except Google Now doesn't work reliably, so forgive me if I'm skeptical about adding functionality.
A 21-year-old Venezuelan-Spanish player, Garbiñe Muguruza Blanco burst on the scene when she beat world number one Serena WIlliams pretty convincingly at last year's French Open. She's through to the third-round at this year's event. Please click my photo then click "Slideshow" to the top left to enlarge. This is from last year's Stanford WTA event.
Tennis stuff: Big lady at 6 feet and a heavy frame. As you might guess, she hits the ball hard, which is how she beat Serena. Forehand is her best shot but her serve comes and goes. Charming smile.
Photo stuff for those that care. I re-edited by old pic to try out the path-blur filter in Photoshop CC14 and also to get a different look. Blurring the racket head makes the viewer look more at her face. Since I rented a D810e the original had oodles of pixels, so I was able to crop this one down a lot. The original shows her leaping high in the air on contact. The racket was largely stopped at 1/1600 f2.8.
