(Access for All) (Formerly Facetublebookmazon) a group of simple, accessible versions of Internet services
This is an internet service that combines a simple search
Duck Go (which is like google as of about 2001), with a
simple version of youtube, amazon, iTunes, Facebook,
Dropbox, and the apple ios devices -- no advertising,
just what works, no
games, no crap, accessible to blind

individual pages, or groups or events, no event feature,
This service should be called "xs4l" -- access for all.
