A few weeks I’ve conducted a survey about the software my readers are using. Today I want to share its results with you.

Just  as  I expected,  there  is  nothing  on the market that users are
really  happy  with.  This means that if you decide to choose software

Dumb luck? Hardly!

Right now in the United States presidential candidates are campaigning in full gear trying to win the nomination in 2016 Presidential Election.

Some of them are flat-out losers. Some a great example of how to promote and get free publicity for free.
