Microsoft’s decision to expand on the footprint of its campus in Redmond, Washington, its home since 1986, is in contrast to the highly-

publicised office expansion plans of Seattle-based Amazon.

Brad Smith, Microsoft President and Chief Legal Officer, made the announcement in a blog post on Wednesday, saying, “At a time when space is at a premium and many companies are looking for room to grow, we

recognise that our 500-acre campus in Redmond, Washington, is a unique asset. Neighbouring a vibrant urban core, suburban towns, lakes, mountains and miles of forest, it’s one of Microsoft’s crown jewels. And as we continue to grow and look to create the best workplace in the tech sector, Microsoft will invest right here in Redmond, our home for more than 30 years.”

Google (GOOGL) reported that it has finally ‘corrected’ the placement of the cheese slice in the burger

emoji on Android, after facing some ridicule on Twitter earlier this month. Google CEO SundarPichai had responded to the Twitter trend, saying he would ‘drop everything’ to fix it. It appears he has. The latest Android 8.1 Oreo Developer Preview 2 comes with a handful of tweaked emojis, including the burger emoji, which now has the cheese slice on top of the patty instead of below.

The corrected versions of

emojis were first spotted by Emojipedia, which is now available under the Android 8.1 Developer Preview 2. As per the report, a new and improved cheeseburger emoji will have the cheese placed atop the patty, as opposed to underneath it.

The intense debate on Twitter over the cheese placement in a burger was also joined by Google CEO

SundarPichai, who promised to ‘drop everything’ to address this irregularity with a burger. Later, Google also served ‘Android burgers’ to its employees at its Seattle office.

The debate started when Thomas

Baekdal, Founder of Baekdal Media, tweeted on the difference in the placement of the cheese slices in the Android and Apple burger emojis. His tweet got multiple interactions, which ultimately became a social media trend. The key difference between ‘Android burger’ emoji and any other is that the slice of cheese is placed beneath the patty and atop the lower bun. Apart from Pichai’s humorous response, Google’s Seattle office had also chimed in on the controversy, and served Googlers the ‘Android burger’, with cheese below the patty.
