Welcome back friends
Sorry recently I posted about Google’s new era of Computing, Google Glass, while growing in technology, Google also taking care of your personal life as well. Google launched Google’s inactive account manager recently. This is simple manager that decides what happens to your digital life, blogger blog, Picasa photos, Google plus account and Mails after you stop using Google for long time or after some misshapen.
