  1. I look forward to the future software/hardware that Google creates.
    Let’s hope they don’t get too greedy and just cater for the big enterprise business and leave the small ones out.

    Ever since they released Gmail, this in my opinion is so much better than any other social email accounts.

  2. Hey Nirmal,
    Google fit is my favorite app. I have been using it from last few days. Thanks for the reaming app suggestions.
