    Start working at<- home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this – 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail

    MSFT is truly brain dead. Yesterday in San Diego they laid off 27 brilliant WP developers who had the misfortune of migrating recently from Nokia. What a waste!
