If you listen to Fanboys, like the iSheep in this video, their products are always better, prettier and advanced. Let's see what happens if you put an Android phone in a iPhone shell and tell people that it is the new iOS9.
Today the Netcasts will be all about the scandal in Germany trying to suppress journalists that do their job, instead of protecting the citizens against criminal acts of foreign secret services.

But first breakfast with a strong Masala Chai black tea. Energy for the brain ;-)
It was the right decision not to let the EU blackmail you. A exit of Greece would be great for the people long-term, but may be a hard way in the beginning. All good wishes for Greece, the cradle of democracy. Meanwhile at the EU:
