So I just read that Youtube's comment system will be replaced by Google+ commenting. And I just noticed while looking at someone's G+ profile that it also helpfully shows the info I have about them from my Google Contacts. Google is successfully embedding G+ in so many services that I'm feeling, for the first time since before it actually launched, that I might soon start using it more than Facebook!

Wow, I can't call Verizon tech support from my phone. I'm routed to My Verizon Mobile app, which doesn't work. Thanks, Verizon.

I just read this article and it's really shocking to me.

I can't fathom why. Can anyone in the medical profession shed any light on why doctors would possibly feel this way?
