Student or Learner
I'm writing an e-mail related to an IT project.
Are the lines below sounds fine/funny?
I am confused with how I should play with countable nouns.
- In my office there are LAN cables for everybody.
- Everyone has a LAN cable at their desk.
- There is a LAN cable for each employee.
- There is a LAN cable at each desk.
Aredo the lines below sound sfine/funny?

Either that, or taken out of context. Perusing the first page of Google hits shows that."that's a good news" = > 9 million hits.. are they all written by non-native english speakers?

As we say so often in these forums, millions of google hits prove nothing at all about usage. The best places to check whether native speakers use a particular construction are corpora such as Corpus of Contemporary American English (COCA) and British National Corpus (BYU-BNC).
Neither of these records 'what a good news' - not one single example.
