1Hello Everyone! It’s a brand new weekend with some brand new updates from around the globe, but there’s something special about today.

Google has a knack of appealing to users more than other tech brands, and you have to admit that they use it pretty well. This week, Google has answered some of the oldest internet prayers that users have been making for decades. Finally, there is no doubt and there is absolutely no shred of ambiguity – Google is our internet savior and has been for quite some time. So let’s move on to the news section, after paying your respects to the Lord of the World Wide Web.
