and to add another dimension to what's stated in the article - Use #Hangouts for  #Meetings  whenever possible.
Bring data, use first principles thinking, and other ways three top technology CEOs run a tight (but effective) meeting.

Audible on Chromebooks

Today is the 19th.  For most of you it's a meaningless day, but for me - it's the day when I get my new +Audible books.  

I've never given much thought to where I'd be listening to a book, since before it ranged from my desktop, to my tablet, and my phone of course... today though, I felt like downloading the new book on my still shiny, but moderately new, HP11 Chromebook... and... I COULDN'T! :(

First, I thought that perhaps I'm not looking at things right.  After all, how can it be available on all Android devices, iOS devices and somehow not on Chromebook?  Well, apparently it does NOT.

So, I jumped into a hangout with Audible... actually, they call it online chat ;) and asked where I can get the app.  The nice lady started the conversation by stating how sorry she was, as if somehow being sorry makes up for the lack of the needed app.

I've talked about 'sorry' syndrome being taken as some sort of magic elixir for customer service done right, which is a total non-sense, and apparently +Audible adopted this ridiculous approach. 

Then the customer service rep told me that due to the DRM - they can't just have it everywhere and if a company doesn't express interest in supporting their platform - well, then there's no software and again she was... you got it - very sorry.

I thought making a statement that Google has no interest in supporting audio books on Chromebooks is totally bogus.  I'd believe it about just about any company, but not Google.  And the fact that they were interested in bringing it to Android and not to Chromebook makes about as much sense as... well, it does NOT, let's just leave it at that.

So, it'll be interesting to see if they do anything.  I've left my official complaint on their feedback follow-up.  It seems +Audible is efficient in terms of being sorry and efficient in immediately requesting feedback after someone interacts with their customer service people... let's see if they actually will come up with some relevant explanation, ie actual date of release of the app, since I'm sure I'm not the only one who has a Chromebook and pays for their monthly subscription... or perhaps I'll just get yet another " I'm sorry *

Monster El Nino may be brewing, experts say

+NBC News: Researchers are keeping a close eye on a giant pool of abnormally warm water in the Pacific Ocean that some think could trigger another El Niño of epic proportions if it rises to the surface.

"Given the drought that California is in the middle of right now, that is really where the heightened interest is," said Mike Halpert, acting director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center in College Park, Md. "It turns out that the odds increase for California to be wet the stronger the event is."

Google+ for Business - the 7-minute interview/tutorial

Excellent, simple to understand, short, yet extremely to the point. +Pepper Oldziey doesn't come across as a talking head or 'guru' you mostly see on G+, but your business will get more relevant & specific recommendations in 7 minutes than listening to 'gurus' for hours.

My sincere thanks to +David Amerland for never disappointing me with his wisdom and bringing wisdom of others to me and mine.
 
Speaking at Digital Marketing for Business
Releigh, NC May 6-8

This is a great conference that has had a large impact on my life and business. Last Year +gopi Kallayil from Google spoke and shared about the use of Hangouts and their potential. This fascinated me and I have devoted most of my own time and work in pursuit of this Social Media Platform, learning how to share it for myself and for my clients.

I'll be happy to see anyone local there next month!

Special thanks to the Google Plussers that have guided my path:
+Mark Traphagen +Jesse Wojdylo +Nikol Murphy and special gratitude to +David Amerland whose book Google Semantic Search has illuminated my thinking and provided his story of the Baker and sparked two of my own business stories that are the examples I share in my presentation.

The Jewish community and local residents in #Warsaw have observed the 71st anniversary of the city ghetto's ill-fated uprising against Occupying Nazi troops during the Second World War.

The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising became an example for Jews in other ghettos and camps. The uprisings that followed, however, were smaller in scope because of their isolation, a shortage of arms and hostile surroundings.

Very cozy place run by competent folks providing good quality care. My mom was cared for by a number of other people and organizations and nobody matched these folks. I'd certainly recommend them.

I've always said that there isn't a single desserts place around that can match these folks. Always incredibly fresh and everything I tried (and that's a decent number of items) is always excellent to incredible. Yesterday I ordered soup and it was absolutely the BEST SOUP I've had in years... many years! I've also had one of their crepes a while back and it was of excellent quality, taste and was pretty unique compared to the kinds of crepes most people sell these days. You absolutely CAN'T go wrong with The French Bakery, in any of their 3 locations. The only drawback is in the Kirkland location, where there aren't lunch items, just desserts & breads, but that's due to location size limitations, which is understandable.
