Join +David Mihm and me at our regular bi-weekly discussion at StreetFight Magazine... this we we explore some of Apple's newest efforts to attack local.
I see [Apple's] messaging platform as the third leg of mobile (joining the web and apps) that we need in place for the transition to non-traditional interfaces like voice, Mike Blumenthal tells David Mihm. Apple is building out a stable of 'body' computers with the Watch and now the AirPods that can provide an interface to the web.

FB Messenger is tool that is readily available, functional and valuable to even the smallest business as a way to open communications with customers.

This feature allows a business to initiate that messaging interaction via FB ads and seems like a real winner.

This "old man" of a tree planted in 1919 as a memorial to fallen soldiers has taken on an air of "maturity".

Another update to the GMB API gives it push notifications of reviews and listing status, a new Category API and soon the ability to update things like your menu URL.

This article reflects a changing of mainstream business attitude towards reviews. From fear to acceptance to embrace the attitudes of businesses have changed a great deal over the past 10 years and its visible in this article.

Mike Blumenthal's +1's are the things they like, agree with, or want to recommend.
This is a new hotel and it's very nice. The location is convenient near both Hobart Williams Smith and Wegmans. The rooms are comfortable, spacious, clean and with very nice beds. The beds were slightly firm but comfortable although there was only one pillow choice that was obvious. The lobby is welcoming and all of the interior space is well designed and attractive. My criticism would be about the value. It is expensive for a room in a 3rd tier market. While not related to the quality of the stay, I find the new exterior design language of their facilities to be quite obnoxious.

A casual, friendly listening space that has some great music. Offers nice beers and a reasonably priced tapas/sandwich. A pleasure to listen to music there.

The food was well prepared, the wait staff very nice and the ambiance was attractive. The serving sizes were modest and the prices seemed high and it wasn't clear why we weren't seated upon our arrival as there were plenty of empty tables. But it was a pleasant dinner.
