Newspapers want to start charging extra for newspapers on Black Friday.  No wonder they are failing? http://consumerist.com/2014/09/18/newspapers-want-to-charge-subscribers-extra-to-receive-black-friday-ads/
If your household still receives a daily or Sunday newspaper, take pity on your neighborhood's paper carrier. It's hard work to haul the ad-stuffed Thanksgiving editions of the paper to subscribers...

Very Proud that Miami University was involved in the You Can Play project and to see schools supporting ALL athletes based on ABILITY and not sexual orientation or gender identity.  If you can play, you can play

Poor Yahoo!  Yet another reason to setup two factor authentication!

Time to get my mom a G+ account, if only to do remote support.

Not a Hipster, but the type of beer lover this speaks to.  Only true Beer Geeks will realize the fake beer names and the real beer names in this video

These guys are constantly spamming me with unsolicited email. If that's what they think is good and effective marketing, then it's pretty clear you should avoid them like the plague.

NSFW but hilarious and scary in it's accuracy 
Everything you ask Google sounds a lot stupider when you actually ask Google.

I’ll never walk back into this dealership and suggest you don’t either. My experiences dealing with them have been the worst of any company that I’ve ever dealt with at least in this lifetime. I don’t remember past lives, but I doubt if any previous existences could top this. Up until recently I’ve had nothing but great experiences. Drove in from Lawrence to have both our Toyotas serviced there and had positive experiences. Friendly helpful service staff so when it came time to buy a car for the spouse, we went to Lewis and everything was great. When I was in a car accident and had to accelerate, pardon the pun, a car purchase the salesperson was great although the transaction was simple. Only one Prius on the lot. Sticker price and done. It’s when I went to pay, believe it or not, all heck broke loose. Since I had a settlement from my insurance I was them what I should do. SIgn it over the salesperson said and the rest I could put on points for my credit card. When I actually went to do this, I was told I couldn’t pay more than $200 via credit card and they wouldn’t accept the check from the insurance company and I’d have to finance it if I wanted to leave today with the car---knowing that I had been dropped off and I had returned my rental car. I was over the barrel. When I called my agent and he said the finance manger was full of smoke (he used a different term) they accepted the check but reminded me that if it bounced I’d be arrested for stealing the car. But wait, it gets better. I was told due to the patriot act they would need my social security number to run a credit check. No really. I knew that was “smoke”-they just didn’t want me to pay cash. I have a credit lock anyways so I would have to unlock it for them to continue. The manager was rude, offensive, belligerent and just downright ornery. Who would have thought paying for the car was trouble? I contacted Toyota national as well as the dealership and my requests fell on deaf ears. Contacting Homeland Security got action as they don’t take kindly to dealers using 9/11 to finance a car. Got an apology from the dealership and an explanation the manager’s wife was dying of cancer and that’s why he was off and no worries, he was retiring. I decided to continue with the dealership based on that Fast forward to a few years later and after spending thousands on dealers service, my car was up for an extended warranty. Did research and contacted the dealership and made sure that manager wasn’t there. I was told he wasn’t and I’d deal with a new person. Went to pick up the warranty and the “retired” manager was there. Same belittlement I received when trying to pay. No paperwork was ready and I had to endure this so-called gentleman for over an hour. When I mentioned to a cashier how frustrated I was and how I regret purchasing from Lewis. I called Toyota to complain and they mentioned the paperwork hadn’t been processed, but my credit card was charged. I then filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and the manager decided to void the warranty and the deal. It wasn’t until I withdrew the claim that they processed the warranty. Seriously, I wouldn’t trust these guys with a tricycle at this point given the shady dealings they delight in.

Keeps spamming me and won't respect opt outs. I did not have an established business relationship with this business and the continued emails were in violation of CAN-SPAM as they did not include a physical address in the email message nor did they promptly remove me from the email list. I do appreciate the review link so I could give others an opinion about the business practices.

Learned about this place from the Caffeine Crawl crew and they have high quality coffee and beans here. The atmosphere feels kinda steampunk with antique typewriters and wood furnished but they have the newest methods of coffee delivery such as pour overs. Took the beans home for brewing and they were excellent The baked goods were ok but nothing exceptional and clearly the focus here is the coffee. Big open spaces make it great for large groups.

We stopped here before an event at Centurylink Center and it’s a fun place to meet a group of people. Seating is serve yourself with some long tables as well as some smaller tables. This is a noisy sports bar and a bit difficult to have a conversation but great to share a sporting event. During events at Centurylink, they have a “limited” menu which means much less choice so be sure to check the website if you have a favorite on the menu and it’s event night. Stricter parking rules as well. It is what it is—typical bar food such as nachos and pizzas however I was impressed with the buffalo chicken pizza. A small selection of microbrews on draft and in bottles lets you do a bit of pre game warm up before the less quality food and beers at Centurylink

This coffee shop is out of this world. Not only does it have great coffee, but it has tasty sandwiches and lots of treats including ice cream sandwiches. Mmm. If that wasn’t enough they’ve got beer . Everything is space themed from the drinks to the wifi password. Service was friendly and they were apologetic they were out of so many items the day after Thanksgiving. The atmosphere (pardon the pun) is very collegial with large tables and booths and excellent wifi. On my way through town I intended to simply stop for a snack and a cup of coffee, but it was so relaxing I stayed a while longer. Totally recommend.

A fun fur-friendly coffee shop with a great atmosphere. Stopped by here while visiting Omaha and love my canines and my coffee. All the dogs here are well behaved and lots of art lines the walls. The coffee was good drip and espresso style. Nothing artisan but a good cup nonetheless. Staff was friendly and when my coffee cup sprung a link the barista was extremely apologetic. The baked goods are brought in and somewhat limited choice but the croissant was a tasty side. Bonus for using Square and knowing how to use wallet.

Classic Italian at it’s best. If you like the old stuff, it’s in there and they move you in and out quick. We stopped here on the way to a show and slightly worried we’d get out in time—boy were we wrong! Despite the long lines they run this place like a military operation. They really work at turning over tables quickly. Our server ran us right on the border of being efficient and rushing us. I’m still not sure. I didn’t feel rushed per say but I would have liked a more leisurely pace to the meal. At one point, when someone was picking at their food during the chat she actually cut his food trying to move him along! It was bizarre and she asked permission, but it was to send the message “eat it or box it”. He boxed it. The place is incredibly large and noisy. This isn’t the place for a romantic meal. Our server upsold most items and, this annoyed me, saying because I was a big guy I didn’t order enough food. I get she needs to upsell but I was quite satisfied with a half portion. Quality of the food was great, but everything was a bit heavy here which is classic red sauce style Italian. Lots of cream or olive oil. I’m not always accustomed to this as I prefer a lighter fare. For the portions, pricing was reasonable but the portion sizes were quite large especially with bread service before. If you want to get a half portion—get it. A nice experience and a great quick meal
