Pearltrees : un concurrent à Google ?

Et comme tout ceux de notre génération (ou presque), nous étions « Fans » des premiers Macbooks et iMac. Fans car cela était contraire à la suprématie du géant Microsoft.

Il en va de même pour Google qui au début avait tout les suffrages (contrairement à ses rivaux de l’époque tels que : Altavista ou Yahoo!)
