    If the Earth is the size of a pea in New York, then the Sun is a
    beachball 50m away, Pluto is 4km away, and the next nearest star is in
    Tokyo. Now shrink Pluto's orbit into a coffee cup, then our Milky Way
    Galaxy fills North America.

    So what's up at Google? This comes not long after reports that some
    Gmail users lost all their mail. The new bug is related to Google
    keeping all your details in a .js file, easily hacked into with a page
    header. Are Google getting complacent and rushing out all these new
    services, trying to stay ahead of the game, but not checking everything
    over properly? I know Gmail is not that new, so Google should have seen
    this exploit ages ago.

    It might look like I'm doing nothing, but at the cellular level I'm
    really quite busy.

    Because it is free, they have zero responsibility. I have had trouble with
    gmail for ages, not receiving emails to my address, so I now don't use it.
