This Generic Brand Video is the Greatest Thing About the Absolute Worst in Advertising.  

To illustrate this marketing strategy equivalent of paint-by-numbers, stock video footage firm Dissolve took its goods and created a masterpiece with the words of Kendra Eash's brilliant McSweeney's piece.

Waze | Outsmarting Traffic Together

You’ve certainly heard of the Waze app – If you haven’t, then download it and begin playing now.
Imagine millions of drivers out on the roads, working together towards a common goal: to outsmart traffic and get everyone the best route to work and back, every day.
Except for being potentially distracting for engrossed drivers, the platform provides a heightened awareness and a benefit beyond anything of the sort before. I’m highlighting it, because of the obvious power in connecting the physical and virtual.

Check out this video on YouTube: it is worth every second. I had no idea there were over 2K detonations since Hiroshima.

We were wondering about N. Korea too, but this goes through 1998.  Their tests were in 2013. http://goo.gl/ITDyB
It is mind boggling how many there were.  If you're interested, I highly recommend the recent documentary about nuke testing.  _Trinity and Beyond_

Consistent, high quality food. Attention to detail and quality ingredients. Pine Yard has been a Chicago favorite for decades. Some consider the Hot and Sour soup to be the best between the coasts. Service is good and many dishes are served in a table side service (soups, mushu). They now deliver within Evanston.

A hidden gem of Vail for value and decent quality. Perhaps the best overall valuew of cost, comfort, and quality. We've stayed many times at the racquet club. Most, if not all, of the units that are managed by the club have been upgraded. The overall compound, while large, is fantastic for families. The outdoor pool is probably the best in the valley and has a great view. The gym and pool are It's not a full-service resort, but has decent amenities. Don't stay there to get pampered, but you'll be very comfortable in this low-key environment. Tips: 1 bedrooms with lofted ceilings often have a loft pace with several beds and feel more like 2 bedroom units. And any of the units that have the lofted ceilings feel more roomy than the condos with standard 9 foot ceilings.

I had an iphone screen replaced in their Evanston, IL location. They did a great job. I give them an excellent, because afterwards my volume control got a little funky. They insisted I come back in. They trouble shot the issue, which may or may not have been the result of the screen repair, and they resolved the issue. They even offered to replace the volume switch wiring for free is the problem came back. I highly recommend these guys.

Don't let the fact that this is co-located with a Holiday Inn fool you, it's a great spot haunted by locals every day. Many think it's the best basic breakfast fair in the Vail and Eagle vallies. Plus there are subtle culinary twists, including southwestern versions and the occasional magic ingredient like sun dried tomoatos.

These guys are great. I had an iphone screen replaced, which they did in under an hour. I give them an excellent rating, because of how they resolve an issue that came up. After the repair my volume control became funky, which may or may not have been a result of the screen swap. When I called they told me to bring in the phone, diagnosed the issue, and got everything working fine. They also asked me to come back if the problem returned and they would replace the volume control for free. Great job all around.

"Eat Food, Get Gas" is on their marquee, but it's anything but a greasy spoon. It recently moved from the original location, which had gas pumps, to this more upscale location which now has a bar and live music. Ollie, the proprietor, and his friendly staff have kept the breakfast and lunch true to the original diner fare, but in the evenings the ex-chef from the Vail Saphire restaurant, puts together a terrific mid-priced menu that combines classic dishes with elements of world cuisine. Breakfast and lunch is moderately priced; dinner is a bit more pricey. Route 6 Cafe is very popular among the locals, and since it isn't near the resorts, it is almost all locals.

Good solid mexican, with more of a culinary feel that the typical place. If you're looking for a standard barrito, rice and beans joint this is not it. If you're looking for mexican influenced cuisine, in a festive atmosphere and great margaritas then you've found your place. Great for adults, but family friendly. On Sunday evening before 730 pm one of the nations most talent balloon men (i.e. animal balloons extraordinaire) hangs out and creates amazing items for anyone who asks... not sure why its at TLMC, but it sure it fun.
