– Google is super honest about Zeitgeist, otherwise the editorial team would have kicked off Facebook from its #1 search spot (without the world even knowing about it). So hats off to them.

– Congratulations to Way2SMS for making it to the top 10 searches. It’s the only Indian technology brand out there (assuming railways as a consumer brand).
