The messages show accused drug traffickers stuffing shipments of tuna cans, bananas, and pineapples with cocaine. The FBI said informants provided suspected criminal organizations around the world with 12,000 devices equipped with the FBI-controlled messaging app, which is called ANOM. Operation Trojan Shield, as it's called, gave law enforcement an opportunity to learn the inner workings of international drug and firearms trafficking organizations. In response, Real G sent a photo of packages of suspected cocaine and said it would be shipped in crates of bananas. In addition to the drugs, law enforcement also seized 55 luxury vehicles and more than $48 million in various currencies as part of the operation, Europol said in its release.

Achieved? Google executives’ appraisals sought in U.S. antitrust case

REUTERS/Paresh Dave/File PhotoLawyers for the Justice Department and Alphabet’s (GOOGL.O) Google tangled on Thursday over whether the company should hand over performance reviews of executives whom the government is considering calling as witnesses. John Schmidtlein, who argued for Google, said he found it hard to believe that a performance review would have information that would break open an antitrust case. He also said he had "never heard" of performance reviews being subpoenaed in an antitrust case. The Justice Department filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google in October, alleging the company acted unlawfully to maintain its position in search and search advertising on the internet. A state antitrust case, filed in December, accused Google of seeking to extend its dominance to devices like speakers, televisions and even smart cars.

Three sources said meetings they had conducted with Starline felt very much like in-person gatherings - as long as the system worked properly. Mesh could make it possible to configure 3D displays for workplace collaboration on virtual designs or documents. Google employees leading the Starline effort previously worked on the company’s virtual reality headsets such as Cardboard and Daydream, which were discontinued in recent months after struggling to find an audience.

REUTERS/Paresh Dave/File PhotoA Texas judge hearing a state antitrust lawsuit against Alphabet Inc's (GOOGL.O) Google denied on Thursday a request for the case to be moved to California, where the company is fighting similar lawsuits. Google had asked for the case to be moved for several reasons, including that its headquarters is in California, as are many of the witnesses who would likely be called. "Google has failed to meet its burden to establish that the Northern District of California is a clearly more convenient venue for the ... litigation than the Eastern District of Texas," he wrote in denying the request. The government antitrust lawsuit is one of three faced by Google.

"The Court is particularly concerned that Plaintiffs’ market excludes social media display advertising and direct negotiations," she wrote. "The Court has serious concerns that some of Plaintiffs’ allegations rely on a 'duty to deal' theory of antitrust," she wrote. Google in other cases faces claims about its dominance of search and mobile software businesses.

In-house counsel for Google is barred from seeing “highly confidential” information under the order unless it is given permission by the court or the affected company. The Texas lawsuit accuses Google of violating the law in how it dominates the process of placing ads online. The protective order also requires people who receive confidential and highly confidential information to agree to allow electronic devices used in their work on the lawsuit to be searched if needed as part of a forensic investigation into a potential leak.
