This is Really Sweet!!!!!!   Thanks +Josh Gauthier for sharing!
Tone broadcasts the URL of the current tab to any machine within earshot that also has the extension installed. We’ve found it useful for quickly sharing documents with everyone in a meeting, contributing relevant links without interrupting conversations, and maybe even the occasional rickroll (https://goo.gl/smp6ig). 

To get started, first install the Tone extension for Chrome (http://g.co/tone). Then simply open a tab with the URL you want to share, make sure your volume is on, and press the Tone button. Your machine will then emit a short sequence of beeps. Nearby machines receive a clickable notification that will open the same tab. Getting everyone on the same page has never been so easy!

It's working flawlessly on our Chromebooks. Windows laptops are having a hard time "hearing" the tone, though.

I use incognito mode to "test" my site and docs to see how they look to public.

I love the way Google+ Photo's HDR setting enhanced this photo of The Biltmore.

This is our Google Education On Air Practice Event for the upcoming Edu On Air Conference. This event is set up exactly like the upcoming event so that we can have a real test. I'll invite my test subjects (Jessica Johnston, Ann DeBolt, Tom Spall, and Mike Wallace) when the event starts. 
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Amy Mayer. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Found this place while visiting Asheville from Texas (home of 1 billion nail salons) and it stacked big time! Friendly, competent, professional service. If I lived here, this would be my go to salon. I got a pedicure and shellac, both are PERFECT! Thanks y'all!

A few hours after they did my gel polish for the second time (including about 10 minutes soaking in acetone), the polish is peeling. I routinely get gel polish and have never experienced that before. My visit was not good. Hope yours is better.

An interesting experience indeed. The check in process feels like one of those creepy promo things you get in the mail where you'll get a "free tv" for checking out the neighborhood. We almost left at that point, but we persevered. Almost all of the houses have the exact same overdone Italianate style, but a few are different. There's a beach house and one modern-style home; other than that, the interiors and decorations are very similar. By the way, this is $15 per person for adults. No sales people bothered us, but we didn't push any of the call buttons or use the little android device they loaned us (in exchange for our driver's licenses.)

Came about an hour after I called on a Saturday, cleared the washer drain of debris, and only charged $100. Nice!

Awesome brew, food, & atmosphere. I would go here every day if I didn't live a couple of thousand miles away.
