  1. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured
    I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
    My blog covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think
    we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!

  2. Great article but don’t you think too much dependency on google i.e. for trips, flights, contacts, art and culture choice can give google a lot of data about our personality and mindset. In today’s world of artificial intelligence they can dot to dot imitate us virtually. Google is in safe hands for now but what’s in the future, who knows?

    1. You are right, but the technology has so much influence on our lives these days that we can not take chance to miss it. Misuse of technology is a side effect we can say.
