Searching for information on Google is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Is that true? Was the library of the 19th century more efficient? Explain.
I will disagree on the fact that searching for information on Google is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

By buying the program, we are insure we wil get the real information, and most of the time you get lower prices.
