I don\’t know how many multi-million dollar lotteries I have won in the past few weeks but it\’s amazing how lucky I\’ve been. I hope many of you have had the same luck, but I suspect that if you have

They\’ve lost me, I\’m no longer a fan of Google. They are no longer innovating, they are now just chasing everyone else and trying to beat them at the game they just created. The problem is that they
