  1. Except that everybody and his little brother just loves to hack Microsoft. They’re really umpopular, and it’s common knowledge that they have big-time security problems. Don’t look for Gmail to go away any time soon.

  2. Guess what, I love Google, not only for there “GMAIL”

    They have seriously everything in one, Weather it’s google +, google earth, map, translate, videos, games, chrome, luanguge to text etc, and hundreds of more stuf, google is far better in that way than facebook, yes thats true, just it came out with all these options a bit too late, if they would have came out with them a bit earlier they would have been the hit!!!!!!!
