"With this app (an Android version is coming soon), Quartz has dispensed with the conventional approach to news and instead introduced a chat messaging interface through which content is delivered."

We'll see if it's a gimick or if it's awesome.

"Yet every time it seems like Mr Trump has made a grievous miscalculation that - at last - will sink his campaign, it ends up as either brilliant strategy or his political armour is just too strong."

Ugh. Why is Donald Trump the only Republican political candidate in the last 12 years to play political chess while the rest of the field plays checkers?
Fox News fires back at Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for his refusal to participate in their debate on Thursday night.

I started writing back the answer and realized it was gonna be a long one, so I told him I would answer here. I’ll start with the list that we used when Daver and I grew #NWITweetup (now NWI Meetup) before retiring and handing it off to Ideas in Motion Media. It’s the same list we used when Kelly and I launched Startup Front which lead to the Elevate Ventures-backed Tech Foundry. Both groups contributed to Valparaiso earning 2015 Google’s eCity o...

"Here is a little revelation. People are not really into using products. Any time spent by a user operating an interface, twisting knobs, pulling levers or tapping buttons is time wasted. Rather, people are more interested in the end result and in obtaining that result in the quickest, least intrusive and most efficient manner possible."

So. Very. True.

So far, so good. I used the basic full wash. I'm not the biggest fan of hot-air dryers (no auto-cloth spin driers though. That's a plus), but I am a fan of one guy vacuuming it, wiping down the inside, and then 4 guys wiping down dry the last of the water from my car - including opening the doors of the car and the trunk to wipe the edges. By contrast, I went to one down the street and it was a teenager with a cloth and he didn't clean the bottom of my doors. I'm not giving it a 5 yet until I give it a few washes. But the guy I was standing in line next during the waiting says he goes there all the time with his Audi and what we were witnesses was the same level of incredible service they give every time he's there.

It's pretty damned cool theater, and you can go there expecting to eat first. And when I say, "you can go there expecting to eat first," I'm referring to the fact that the theater is perfectly centered next to Fuddruckers, Quiznos, On The Border, Five Guys, and several other restaurants located within the relaxing outdoor plaza that would give you much more for the food money. The movie-viewing experience is quite legit. Great seats. Great screens. It truly feels like a destination experience. And if you go, please, wait in line with everyone else who hasn't noticed that there are kiosks just inside the door on the right where you can buy the tickets for the same price in half the time. Seriously, unnecessarily waiting in line is part of the experience. It'll make it that much easier for me to quickly get my tickets and find a good seat.

It makes for a great crash pad. We got in at 4am. The manager initially charged us $10 per dog, then dropped it to $5 when we went to pay because the king room wasn't available (construction: who, by the way, were quiet). He also didn't hold us to an 11am checkout since we got in when the first of daylight was starting to sneak over the eastern ridge. Our little Havanese dogs were quite comfortable. As were we. The linens looked old bit cared for, similar to my grandmother's house back in Chicagoland. We didn't use them, but that's because we use our own pillow and blanket on trips so we don't get too snug and not want to get up the next day. Country accents. Original wood crown molding and pieces. Lantern-style center light and a Coca-Cola bottle opener on the bathroom door frame. Painted brick (actual brick) walls. Small room, but quaint moreso than cheap in the size. It keeps you comfortable. TV and dresser in a little alcove allows the walking aisles to be open. Gabled windows that open out. We missed the breakfast, but that's because we didn't fall asleep til 5am. Otherwise 7-11am breakfast is generous. AC has vintage dial settings, but clean and functional. All in all, it ain't the Hilton but its charm keeps you calm. It's low-key nature and accommodating conditions made it an ideal stay. And the Manager, I swear, works there 24/7. He was the guy that checked us out when we left later on that day. I think he's the owner/operator.

Just order, "Something Lunchy," or "Something Dinnery," and let them go to town. Well, now, make sure you let them know if you have any food allergies so they don't make something to which you are allergic but other than that, let them go to town. The food will be incredible. The place is incredible. So glad RG got us to start coming there in 2011. I'll never be able to thank him enough. Shout out to Mary and her crew!

It was a great little all-in-one stop. Quiznos hit the spot, staff was friendly, convenience store prices were convenient - even had Luna bars. Gas & tires for little issues that could arise on I80. We saved this spot to our Google Maps account for future reference.

Jim Ullom is building a nice little niche brand for himself. All the Realtors in the area I've talked to have nothing but positive things to say about him and his work. He's also been very gracious to us when we've hosted social media events in his accommodating for-rent meeting space. And he'll always give great tips when I ask housing questions. I'm gonna take him up on his offer to help me find my first home in a couple years. Sincerely Nat Finn (try putting your name behind the review, MJ1971!)

I'm shopping around for the best prices for a trip to Palo Alto. Was turned onto Infinity by a few friends. Love what I've read so far. Like what I've seen. I feel I'd do much worse if I'd go anywhere else. Way to be awesome, y'all.
