    Google Drops Bid for DoD JEDI Program

    Google hasn't been doing well lately with the security breach, closing Google plus and refusing to testify at the senate hearing. Dropping out of JEDI is a way for them to save face. They knew they wouldn't win and now they can say that they weren't interested.
