It looks like he's trying to buy some goodwill from the EU...
“Today, I announced that we plan to invest 3 billion euros to expand our data centres across Europe over the next two years. That will bring our total investment in Europe’s internet infrastructure to 15 billion euros since 2007. Our investments generate economic activity for the region and support more than 13,000 full-time jobs in the EU every year, according to a study published today by Copenhagen Economics.”

Google may have just ushered in an era of ‘quantum supremacy’
The first computation that can only be performed on a quantum processor’

Google says that it has achieved quantum supremacy, a major milestone towards the development of quantum computers. At least, it seems to have. The announcement came in a paper that was reportedly published on the NASA website before being pulled, according to the The Financial Times which retrieved a copy before it disappeared. “To our knowledge,” Google’s paper read, “this experiment marks the first computation that can only be performed on a quantum processor.” The Google research paper was titled “Quantum supremacy using a programmable superconducting processor.”

Google takes hard line, refuses to pay French news sites despite new law
Google is taking a hard line in negotiations with European news sites.
...
Google believes that France's version of the law allows Google to include an article's headline in a search result, but not the "snippet" that often appears below the headline. So to comply with the new French law, Google will remove the snippet below links to French news sites, as well as thumbnail images that sometimes appear next to news results.

"We don’t accept payment from anyone to be included in search results," Google wrote in another Wednesday blog post. "We sell ads, not search results, and every ad on Google is clearly marked. That’s also why we don’t pay publishers when people click on their links in a search result."

Of course, the change could reduce traffic to French news sites. Google says that if news sites want Google to start showing snippets again, they just have to give Google permission to do so.
