Was it the vowel outage? The Translate for Animals app on an Android phone? Or perhaps the new functionality on… Continue reading April Snippet
I never really manage to understand how a month can go by so quickly. This one has been no exception. And the end of March means the end of the first quarter to 2010. Wasn't it just New Year's?
