Google holds its nose, lets the hoi polloi run PHP on its shiny cloud

The main problem with AppEngine seems to be it does not work very well. I signed up and thought - great - just write a bit of code in Python and scale to millions of users but if you look at any reviews from people who have tried they all have issues eg http://techtraits.com/System%20Admin/2013/02/24/The-problems-of-working-in-App-engine/ or http://www.war-worlds.com/blog/2013/06/switched-away-from-app-engine-couldnt-be-happier

I think if Google and fix it so it just works and does not cost more than their rivals then they could do very well

Not actually true - you can run WordPress. See https://developers.google.com/appengine/articles/wordpress

Re: maybe not DOA, but certainly insignificant...

Well maybe - maybe not. I've not actually played with one but looking at the video it looks to me to be the first phone to actually move the state of phone os development ahead of iOS. When the iphone came out it was way ahead of existing phones, then Android / Blackberry 10 / Phone 8 were kind of catch up efforts to try to keep up with Apple. As an iphone user this is the first thing I've seen that looks a clear step forward from current Apple tech.

Zuckerberg escapes scrutiny in Facebook ownership case

Abandoned not by two but five lawyers I believe

1 Terrence Connors

2 Dennis Vaco

3 DLA Piper

4 Edelson McGuire

5 Jeffrey A. Lake

He really is a bit careless with his lawyers and should look after them better

Chrome's quickest

Chrome's quickest and simplest - I've never seen the ads. Also it's often the only one not to get hacked at pwn2own
