Oh, for God's sake, Google, give it up. You suck at social. Google+ is a failure. Orkut failed. Buzz failed. Google Reader was a modest success but you shut it down. Google Wave failed. Spaces failed. 
Also, you have about 37 different messaging apps. I can't tell the difference between them and I'm a tech journalist who follows these things. What's the difference between Allo, Duo, and Hangouts? I don't know and I don't care because nobody uses any of them. Pick one messaging app and stick with it.

"Any one can do any amount of work, provided it isn’t the work he is supposed to be doing at that moment." — Robert Benchley

I’m farsighted, which means I need to take my glasses off when I’m at the computer or otherwise reading. Which is a lot of the time.
After years of struggling to break the habit, I now accept that my glasses are going to live on top of my head when I’m not using them to see through.
I accept that this will make me universally hated by optometrists, opticians, and ophthalmologists worldwide.
Another reason they will hate me: I don’t know the difference between an optometrist, optician, and ophthalmologist. And I can’t spell “ophthalmologist,” either – not without spellcheck.

Trump's previous threats to Republicans who failed to support TrumpCare means he now has to fight a war against them.
This might destroy the Republicans as a national party – just as we hoped would happen when we all expected a Clinton win.
Yes, the adage about counting unhatched chickens applies here.
Still, this whole imbroglio is like Christmas in March for anybody who values democracy and competent government.
