    Facebook make a surprise purchase on Monday, buying photo-sharing network Instagram. Just last week the popular Instagram was not for sale, but Facebook’s $1 billion offer evidently persuaded the owners to sell. Instagram is a free app for smartphones that allows users to share photos and to digitally alter images they take.
    Quote of note
    "We were anticipating that there would be no grand jury, because the family has always been hopeful that there would just simply be an arrest. We believed, from day one, that they had enough evidence to arrest the killer of Trayvon Martin and now, as the evidence has continued to unfold, we think there has been a plethora of evidence to simply effect probable cause to do an arrest - not for a conviction, but for an arrest." – Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump, talking after it was announced Monday that the case would not be going to a grand jury.
