-- Uh oh, did Apple go too far in its iOS7 redesign?
The new iOS 7 software has a ‘flat design’, but critics say the dramatic new look could backfire, confusing users - while others claim it simply looks like Google’s rival Android system.

“He walked up and he said ‘I can tell you’re driving DUI by looking in your eyes,’” Thornton told KNXV.
Thornton was then given a sobriety test.
“I take my glasses off and he says, ‘You’ve got bloodshot eyes.’ I said, ‘I’ve been swimming at LA Fitness,’ and he says, ‘I think you’re DUI,’” said Thornton. “He goes, ‘Well we’re going to do a sobriety test.’ I said, ‘OK, but I got bad knees and a bad hip with surgery in two days.’”
-- Edward Snowden was fired from his job.
Booz Allen can confirm that Edward Snowden, 29, was an employee of our firm for less than 3 months, assigned to a team in Hawaii.

We will work closely with our clients and authorities in their investigation of this matter.
