A real life James Bond, Aimen Dean had stolen files from the terrorist group al Qaeda and became one of MI6’s top assets.

Google has joined the race to *cue Dr. Evil* one million dollars… just kidding, they’re en route to the big bucks, racing with big names Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft to hit one trillion dollars. With an estimated revenue of over eight hundred billion dollars, Google still falls short of Apple’s gigantic wallet, but the second half of 2018 may prove a vital period for Google’s growth.
