Comcast buys Sky, Google CEO rejects bias claims
This is CNET and here are the stories that matter right now.
US cable tv giant Comcast has won its bid to buyout UK television company SKY, beating 21st Century FOX in the 39 billion dollar deal.
The win comes after Comcast lost out to Disney in its bid to buy Fox back in July.
Comcast did not comment on the deal, but its final offer valued SKy at approximately 29.7 billion pounds.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai has sent a memo to employees advising them that Google doesn't prioritize political views through search, according to The Wall Street Journal.
In the memo sent on Friday and seen by the journal, Pichai wrote Google does not bias our products to favor any political agenda.
And that if any Googler ever undermines that trust, we will hold them accountable.
Pichai also dismissed reports about Google staff considering tweaks to search results.
Google did not comment on the memo.
And finally, Android officially celebrated its 10th birthday on Sunday.
Google first unveiled the operating system on September 23rd, 2008.
With the launch of the T-Mobile G1.
Manufactured by HTC, the G1 was up against phones from the likes of Nokia, Microsoft, and Blackberry.
But ten years later, nine out of every ten smartphones sold now run on Android.
