Trainer Tips  - 
 
I accidentally bumped the wrong sign-in option while walking and now Pokemon Go refuses to give me the options again so I can sign in correctly. I've tried going into Accounts and also Google in Settings (Android phone), long pressing the menu button once the game starts, restarting the phone, going to Connected Apps and Sites, searching Google and YouTube (which all seem to show how to log out normally after you have been playing the game rather than how get back to where you can sign in the right way) and various other less obvious things, including going through a bunch of the screens in the app (clear up to the point where you are customizing your avatar) and cannot find any place where it shows Pokemon as an app or lets you sign out! How in the world do you get to the screen where you can choose the sign in method?

This article is telling business owners to download Ingress in order to access the Intel map to find PokeStops!
 
And on the plus side of the Pokemon Go craze - local businesses can attract visitors for a little over a dollar an hour.
For $1.19 an hour, you can have more customers than you've ever seen in your life

Everyone be careful - both walking / playing and driving.

While driving last night I was watching a guy looking at his phone and he did stop right before crossing the street in front of the car.

You can now request a +Lyft ride in #Pittsburgh via Amazon Echo. But to get credit toward some rides if you haven't used Lyft yet, I'd suggest downloading the app on a smartphone and entering a promo code - PITTS - before requesting your first ride via either the phone app or Echo.
Today, we’re launching our integration with Amazon Alexa so you can get a ride without lifting a finger. Now Alexa can request rides, tip your driver, and even remember your home and work addresses. With Alexa, commuting is now as easy as saying, “Alexa, ask Lyft for a Lyft Line to work.”

A +Kickstarter project for an Escape Room, ending Saturday. Unless it gets a lot of support, it doesn't look like it's going to get fully funded.
THE escape room game. Your team is challenged to discover clues, solve puzzles & manipulate contraptions TOGETHER to escape in time!

No, I hadn't heard that yet. Seeing it now: One Pokemon Go player has made a political statement by taking control of the "Westboro Baptist Church gym" in the augmented reality game and placed a Clefairy named "LOVEISLOVE" as its protector.

A #Pittsburgh based +Kickstarter for a razor with 15¢ replacement blades.
LEAF is a customizable metal razor with a pivoting head and multi-blade support that works with blades that cost CENTS - not dollars!

Where are the blades made...? China?

That's why I bought from Harry's. Dollar Shave Club sources theirs out of China and (presumedly) some Sh!hole factory there.

Great restaurant. Used their charging station for my Hyundai Sonata. Need reservations in advance, though - I was unable to get reservations for the same day.

Short walks to a couple different overlooks. One is more strenuous to walk back up. Tours available to walk under the bridge.
