Another Panda update. Will have to keep an eye on this to see how it impacts our clients' sites.
Panda update rolling out

Earlier this week, we started a slow rollout of an improved Panda algorithm, and we expect to have everything done sometime next week. 

Based on user (and webmaster!) feedback, we’ve been able to discover a few more signals to help Panda identify low-quality content more precisely. This results in a greater diversity of high-quality small- and medium-sized sites ranking higher, which is nice.

Depending on the locale, around 3-5% of queries are affected.

A Better Way to Say Sorry. Really helpful for teaching kids! Four part process:
"I’m sorry for…"
"This is wrong because…"
"In the future, I will…"
"Will you forgive me?"

Apple's built-in iPhone weather app seems to always report a temperature that is about 5-7 degrees colder than reality. I like Weather Puppy a lot more.

PSA: YouTube's embed code is adding an unnecessary ")" at the end of its code. Remove the ")" from the code before adding to your website. #YouTube  

Support for Google+ for Business is apparently so terrible that my support request shows up on my own personal G+ page, which is not what I want at all.
