OK Google, why was your web traffic hijacked and routed through China, Russia today?

Re: Cue Bono?

He seems to be ahead of the game.

With or without you

I still have not found what I am looking for

If he has a few spare minutes, maybe we can ask him to get in touch with Google to assist with forecasting Just hope that this does not lead to another freebie

I was also invited to give my details to be met with an illogical security scam that seemed to be more interested in slurping my details.

I have it on good authority that Ms Rudd is in fact a test for Political AI, coming to a polling booth near you very soon

I took a punt on the Umi Zero a while ago. It is not 4G, so if this is a necessity look elsewhere.
