Google has a plan to make your pages load faster. The search giant has developed a new kind of image format that promises to shrink the size of web photos and graphic files down by about 35 percent, which should boost load times for websites. Facebook, Netflix, EBay and several other websites have begun supporting the new format. So if your pages load a bit faster in the near future, you might have Google to thank.

A Michigan sheriff says orange is no longer the new black in his jail because he thinks the Netflix prison drama "Orange is the New Black" glorifies life behind bars. The sheriff is swapping the orange jail jumpsuits for black and white stripes, saying he doesn't want the T.V. show to "bleed over into real life." He also says the new jumpsuits will make it easier to spot when prisoners out on work detail.

No one knows when the bodies will be returned to the families.
