My original iPod was nailed to an Araucaria Cunninghamii when I found out I couldn’t change the battery.

How can Google be called a search engine?

The first page is an advertising directory and the next 5 pages are filled by people who, like Tax evaders, are trying to manipulate the system for their or their client’s benefit. Please give us an organic search engine.

Now – Bill Gates says “By 2035 there will be almost no poor countries left in the world”.

He says our scepticism is holding back the speed at which this will happen.

“The belief that the world can’t solve extreme poverty and disease isn’t just mistaken. It is harmful.”

  2. Foreign aid is a big waste.
  3. Saving lives leads to overpopulation.

The letter is an engaging essay, full of stats, videos, infographics and lots of reasons for us to believe.
