Well, according to Google, they are now 12 years old today. It's been all over Twitter, the tech blogs, and the news. Congratulations to them. As one woman put it, you have one more year to use them because when they become a teenager, they will no longer listen to you!
I hope that doesn't happen. I still happen to like my gmail.
The other news today was that the guy who was the Segway president ,Jimi Heselden, died while riding off a cliff on the Segway. Oh, I can just hear the jokes now. However, he had donated over 23 million in British pounds to charity over the course of his lifetime. So, for that, let us go a little easy on him.
Given the fact that he was worth only 166 million British pounds that isn't a bad number for donations to charity. Wonder if some of our highly paid executives in the states could boast that kind of percentage?
And, wonder of wonder, the porn honchos are out to take down the "pirates". Enough said.
