+Google Canada+Sergey Brin​ I have been using Google maps/Local Business since inception issue free. Suddenly I am being harassed by a team in India with extremely poor diction and English comprehension over a business I have run since 09 issue free. Please offer a professional service where people can pay to validate location based info so you can get the right people on the job. I can't tell you how angry I am being treated like that running a fortune through Adwords etc with my clients and then after so long being shut down without a call/notification. This is beyond unprofessional conduct on part of +Google Small Business​ Also, the postcard thing with many businesses gets lost when a credit card with business license would be done same day while profiting +Google​ . Credit cards are tied to locations so this should be a no brainer. More profit+ valid search results + happy clients.

In the grand scheme of things we're just a small part but sometimes you need to go outside to see that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6U3VCneKfs

If you know where to look or click, there's a hidden link from Alphabet to Hooli, the fictional tech company in HBO's Silicon Valley comedy. But hidden links are a no-no with Google's search guidelines.

Does ABC corp's title stand for Always Be Closing +Sergey Brin ? I mean that would be all kinds of awesome if it did for a parent company. Hats off to you!

A website's intrinsic value is an extension of you. Cohesive and comprehensive design with a clear message examplifies the psychology of ease of doing business with an established company. This remains true for big or small. All companies can continue to benefit from improving on this by listening with advanced business intelligence and science marketing.

I'd love to see +Google+  Chrome cache the latest working password instead of keeping the old ones and patch Chrome for Windows 10 weird rendering issues for the navigation and url bar.

How are we all supposed to keep in touch now that google+ is going away? Twitter is a ghost town for activity. FB works fine

lol, so about that online dating thing... 
Here’s some dating statistics below of what it’s like to online dating and below that my reviews of the experiences from each site. Keep in mind, I didn’t elect to date most of these people and am pretty selective about whom I meet. This is after talking online on the dating sites through their chat [...]

I've bought and sold a number of vehicles over the years so this wasn't my first rodeo. It took 15 days to get my truck I picked right off the showroom floor and yet my loan start date started 15 days prior to being in receipt of the vehicle. Sketchy right? I was told by Sherwood Park Chevrolet finance it was not an issue to switch financing after a year by just calling the bank finance setup and to just ask the bank for a lower rate based on sound history with the loan. 1.5 years later with a great history with no missed payments and great credit I decided to call the bank and they tell me that I was mislead by Sherwood Park Chevrolet finance because they don't do that. In fact, the bank representative candidly told me it is sort of the dealership's business to try to get you into a higher rate as the returns to the dealership are higher and I should have easily seen a much better rate originally. Don't be fooled! I went through private financing after this with my bank and naturally got my rates reduced to a great amount. However before doing this when I called in to Sherwood Park Chevrolet to first confront their finance department about the financing that they promised and assured me they kept trying to put me into another vehicle despite my just having bought my truck from them the previous year (2014 Silverado loaded). I outright told them to have salesmen stop calling about selling me another vehicle. The finance department that I called and asked for was messing me around and instead trying to get me into another car instead of returning my calls. That took two weeks just to get some answers out of the Sherwood Park Chevrolet Finance. The rates they came up were for a new vehicle which they had apparently applied for me to get another vehicle when I had blatantly told them absolutely not numerous times. Seriously, I feel like I should have sued them. If they try to sell you on not getting winter tires put into the package don't go for it. The stock all season tires are inadequate from my 1.5 years of driving my truck for Alberta's interesting winters. Definitely opt for some winters into the deal as you'll slide pretty good without. So basically if you want to get conned, someone filing applications for something you didn't ask for and random sales people harassing to buy you after you asked them to stop then go to these guys. No not one or two but three guys calling despite saying no thanks. They don't listen and they certainly don't demonstrate any integrity. I'm a pretty fair person but I honestly wouldn't advise buying anything from them. If for some reason you do decide to buy a vehicle from them I'd use unhaggleme online before going in to get bottom rates and using private financing so you get exactly what you're looking for rather than being mislead. If it comes to the service department I have nothing but good things to say about them. The service department is an absolute pleasure to deal with but I'd definitely avoid buying a vehicle from them.

Customer service for consumer products is great but for business they have a long way to go.

If you call Magic Day Spa you're lucky to get an answer. If you do you're likely to hear arguing in the background in broken English. The management there is horrible and the people I bought gift certificates for were not impressed with the service at all. Not only did they provide horrible service but they lied about not having services anymore that were paid for. The owners of Magic Day Spa are con artists and I would not recommend their services to anyone.

Jesse is a top Calgary photographer. We did a portrait and fashion photo shoot that turned out awesome. I've seen a lot of his work lately and it should be show cased in a museum. I can't wait to do another shoot again!

I've been living in and running my business from the Rossdale House for 3 years. The service and management at the building is excellent. If there's ever any issues they promptly take care of it. If you're a business professional like myself and you like walking the river valley this is a great place to live.

I was astonished to see such an impressive photo realistic quality 3D portfolio coming out of Edmonton. You might expect similar quality coming from Pixar Studios. I asked Pixel 10 to come up with a 3D rendering for a new high end watch company for their upcoming marketing campaign. With in one week using no diagrams, and just the physical watch they were able to produce a watch animation that my girlfriend thought was actually real. I would certainly work with them on other marketing campaigns in the future.
