One more reminder about how greedy +Comcast+Verizon Wireless, +AT&T, +Time Warner Cable are.
I already unleashed my phone data with +T Mobile.
Your time is coming soon, Comcast...
First day I get an internet provider alternative -> I run!
Time Warner Cable is the latest ISP to promise better service in advance of a Google Fiber rollout

According to Google Maps, Edward Snowden appears to be selling snowboards out of the White House.
A sign that the whistleblower and President Obama are talking? No. Ironically, it's likely due to a security failure with how Google monitors local listings.

I don't want to see anything about mobile-friendly algorithm in my stream either (it's a beaten horse since June 2013). But +Andrew Shotland twisted my arm & forced me to share it here...

Why Google’s Mobile Friendly Ranking Signal Most Likely WILL Affect Local Pack Listings
http://www.localseoguide.com/why-googles-mobile-friendly-ranking-signal-most-likely-will-affect-local-pack-listings/

P.S.
1) It's silly to think that excluding not-mobile-friendly sites from mobile results won't effect their map results with all existing algo connections to business websites.
2) Google teams don't communicate well - I don't think Gary takes all connections to map results into the account.
3) hmm, stop drinking Google Kool-Aid
4) Stop talking about mobile-friendly update already (+Andrew Shotland  is still holding my arm). If you're only thinking about mobile now (because of some update Google is releasing) - you're out of touch with reality, your market, your customers.

Very nice.

A few years ago I could have identified those chords. If you don't use 'em, you lose 'em.

I was listening but there are still no "out of the box" solutions small business can use. Are there, +Greg Sterling?

Literally for more than ten years I’ve been talking about how marketers miss the majority of digitally influenced conversions because they can’t measure offline store visits or sales lift. However that is now changing at a rapid pace.

Wow! Great food & experience! Too bad I didn't visit here before - it's next door but I prejudged because restaurants were in and out every year at this location in my neighborhood. I guess I didn't want to attach to another fly-by-night business here. But this is not one of those. Exceptional service, clean & comfortable interior and great, authentic food. Totally worth a quick lunch break or visit with the family. I'll certainly be back!

Enjoyed a few chats here with local friends. Comfy and cool coffee house during hot summer days. Great place to get loaded with caffeine and read, work on a project, chat with a friend or have a meeting (all business meetings should be in places like these rather than boring office meeting rooms). Personnel was super sweet and responsive both times I was there. Made a great suggestion when I needed one. Their pies are great! Will certainly stop by here when I'm back in town!

First impression was - what is this nice Italian restaurant doing in the middle of nowhere (in a good way)?: no city center, not a huge intersection, in the middle of the residential area. Beautiful view on the lake and mountain Rainier on the clear sky day. Amazing experience. They have local musicians on Saturday evenings. Very loyal customer base too - my wife and I were there about 10 times now and I saw same groups of people there a few times. There's absolutely no question I'd go here instead of mainstream "Italian" restaurants (I'm looking at you, Olive G.; we never went back to mainstream after visiting Al Lago). Fantastic customer service! Great food & its selection! I can't even name my favorite - I tried most dishes by now and don't have 1-2 favorites anymore. Not a single time that we weren't happy with our dining experience here. We choose to drive extra 10 minutes up to Bonney Lake to visit the place. Well worth it!

Best donuts in town! I love that place! Either getting them on Sunday afternoon or sitting down in the late evening - one of few places open in Auburn after 10. Better get donuts early though - they often sell out. But, unlike Safeway, they make fresh donuts during the day, not just in the morning.

Wish I had coffee shop like this within 5 min drive from my house! My wife and I took a random drive to Burien and West Seattle and ended up here based on my friend's recommendation. Glad we did. Great barista! Trying to figure out what we wanted and seeing others order before and after us - barista knew locals and what they wanted, was super polite, asked about our day, etc. Then we just enjoyed our time there. Nice house! Relaxed atmosphere. Inside and outside seating. Great for chats, great for quietly working on a project on your laptop (free Wi-Fi), great for business chats/interviews. I'd have local business meet up here (and they offer that as an option) instead of boring office space or rental room . Great coffee! Highly recommended!

We took a ferry trip to Bainbridge Island for the first time last Saturday. Wanted to try something different & Marche french style stood out on the list of restaurants. It's nicely situated too with foot traffic & a nice location. Glad we made that choice! We didn't make a reservation (tip: you want to) but were still able to get a nice table by the open kitchen. Just after one visit I can suggest you get a table right by the kitchen, like we did, or on the patio. Modern room & building design with beautiful touches. We felt welcomed from the very start. First by the manager. Then by the chef (I have to admit - that was awesome; we weren't even walking directly by the kitchen; across the room). Jennifer was a fantastic waitress. Another waitress stopped by to check on us as well in casual (not annoying at all) way. Great customer service experience all the way around! It's a fine dining experience. Each dish had its personal touch. Very enjoyable. Portions aren't big but each has an unexpected flavor. My wife and I liked everything we tried. Marche sure was the highlight of our day.
