Sunday 15:25 GMT

Zverev heads a group of younger players including Austria's Dominic Thiem and Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov who are looking to upset the established order in Paris, where a player outside of the big three hasn't won since 2005 — Nadal alone has 10 French Open titles.

Farm bill, immigration redux, Ryan's potential ouster, like a Shakespeare 'play within a play'

Sunday 15:25 GMT

Key members of the Freedom Caucus yanked their support for the farm bill in an effort to force the House Republican brass to concoct a conservative agreement on immigration.

Sunday 14:31 GMT

Alexa privacy fail highlights risks of smart speakers

Sunday 13:36 GMT

The revelation that a woman in Portland, Oregon, had her private conversations secretly recorded by the voice-controlled Amazon virtual devices in her home and then sent to a random contact in Seattle has caused mounting concern about vulnerabilities behind the burgeoning technology of so-called smart speakers.

"That might defeat some of the ease of use, but, seriously, what takes longer: 20 seconds to plug your device back in or weeks of trying to undo a mistake that occurred by something that was misinterpreted by a smart device that didn't turn out to be so smart?"
