+<b>1 April, 2014, Tel Aviv, Israel:</b>
+Google announced today that following its popular decision to discontinue
+not-so-popular services such as
+<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Reader">Google Reader</a>, it
+is going to discontinue other services such as
+<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Search">Google Web Search</a>,
+<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gmail">Gmail</a>,
+and <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Docs">Google Docs</a>.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+“These services have been suffering from declining use and popularity”, a
+Google spokesman said, “as a result, Google decided to discontinue
+them in order to remain profitable.”

+After discontinuing these services, Google will focus on more profitable

+
+<p>
+The same Google spokesman also noted that Google is considering to discontinue
+<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AdSense">Google AdSense</a> and
+AdWords, because they too are proving to undermine its profitability.

+<b>1 April, 2014, Tel Aviv, Israel:</b>
+“FOSS developers don’t have enough choice when it comes to licensing.” says
+the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_Software_Foundation">Free
+    Software Foundation (FSF)</a>. Thus, in order to contribute
+to the noble cause of
+<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/License_proliferation">licence
+    proliferation</a>, it announced new versions of the
+<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_General_Public_License">GNU General
+Public License (GPL)</a>.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+The FSF announced the GPL version 4 (<b>GPLv4</b>), GPL version 5
+(<b>GPLv5</b>), GPL version 6 (<b>GPLv6</b>), as well as the GPLv7,
+the GPLv8, the GPLv9 and the GPLv10 — all with their
+<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_Lesser_General_Public_License">LGPL</a> (Lesser GPL),
+<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Affero_General_Public_License">AGPL</a>
+(Affero GPL), and
+LAGPL (Lesser Affero GPL) variants, and all mutually incompatible with
+one another and with the GPLv2 and the GPLv3 (which are in turn now deprecated).

+<b>The New GPL logo now that GPLv3 was deprecated.</b>
+</p>
+
+<p>
+In addition, by popular demand, the FSF introduced some often
+requested <b>variants</b> of the GPL: Strangely-enticing GPL (SEGPL),
+Diamond Encrusted GPL (DEGPL), Zebra Flavoured GPL (ZFGPL),
+Objective GPL, GPL++, GPL Enterprise Edition (GPLEE), Industrial
+Strength GPL (ISGPL), GPL for Dummies (GPL4D), Unusable GPL (UGPL),
+<a href="http://altreus.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/gnu-passive-aggressive-public-licence.html">GNU Passive Aggressive Public Licence</a> (GPAPL),
+Proprietary GPL (PGPL), Non-Free GPL (NFGPL),
+and I Can't Believe It's Not The GPL (ICBINTGPL).
+</p>
+
+<p>
+The Free Software Foundation is also going to introduce one GPL licence each
+day in an effort known <b>“Daily GPL”</b>, where each daily GPL breaks
+compatibility with all the previous daily GPLs. As an FSF spokesman said “We
+hope that soon there will be
+<a href="http://www.bbspot.com/news/2000/4/linux_distros.html">more</a>
+versions of the GPL (“GPLs”? Hmmm…) than GPL-licenced software”.
+</p>
+

+The GPLs’ proliferation has met with some positive responses from organisations
+who need to deal with them. The administrators of
+<a href="https://freecode.com/">Freecode</a>, a releases
+announcements and cataloguing site for UNIX software, noted: “This initiative
+is threatening to make the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Table_%28database%29">database table</a> holding the possible options for software
+licences larger than all other tables. We’re contemplating to just consolidate
+all these licences under one option of ‘Under one or more of the FSF
