The striker endured an unhappy spell working with Guardiola during the 2009-10 season and referred to the Catalan as a "spineless coward" in his autobiography. (more...)
Facebook is celebrating Star Trek's 50th anniversary with new Like buttons
- September 09, 2016

The Like button is a little uninspired, with a few stars added behind the thumbs up.

And that's just to name a few of the many drawbacks. That doesn't mean I think losing the headphone jack was a great idea, either.
