The Video of Siri is HYSTERICAL!
Props to G+ and LinkedIn.
Even though the number of users count may be off. I know a ton of people that have accounts and won’t use it.(I love G+, btw) They’d rather use that evil product known as facebook.
Far as LinkedIn, congrats. I just hope it doesn’t become the new facebook. I see soooo many people improperly using that networking tool. I get so many request from people wanting to be in their network, and I do see an advantage to most of them. You should BRANCH OUT, not connect with current CO-WORKERS.
Just my two pennies.
yeah that Siri vid was funny. :)
