Her abilities in Latin and Spanish were of no avail. Happily after an hour, now in darkness and quite fearful, an American couple who knew Paris came to her aid.
Then again, I wouldn't be surprised if seeing the use of an aid, such as an iPhone, help would still be refused on the grounds this still wasn't really speaking French. /yep still really, really pissed off about this!

Amazon has a legitimate plan at least. Google is completely lost and clueless. They are legitimately worried that Apple's move will drive up the open market price of NAND flash. It very likely will. But Google sells so few Pixels, it is ridiculous for them to even attempt this. Google will destroy the company through mismanagement like they did to Motorola and Nest. The result will be even fewer players with Apple still driving the show. It will be even worse for Google in the long run.
Amazon at least has a decent chance at keeping the memory maker afloat. Not in the same league as Apple, but still head and shoulders above Google.
