Thanks +Dan Thompson but no Java on my machine.   Still it is fascinating that our minds work that way and such short distractions could prevent seeing what is right in front of us.

Snow turns a cup of black coffee into a latte

Awesome catch by my friend +Kara Loo​ of some (maybe) unintentional marketing from +Starbucks Coffee​.
 
Gotta love this - coffee on Starbucks sign becomes a latte when it snows :)
“Cup signage becomes a latte in the cold winter weather! Intentional marketing? Idk, but something warm and foamy does sound totally good. #starbucks”

Does Your City Have Its Own Mobile App? What Do You Think Of It?

My city's app needs a lot of work to be of any real use to visitors. Right now they have separate categories for "eat", "shop", "stay", and "play". But, clicking any of them just brings the user to an alphabetical list of businesses that one would assume fit that category. A click on the business leads to a simple page with address and hours. That's all.

The search function seems to only allow for words in the business name itself. In other words, if your pizzeria doesn't have the word "pizza" in it, it's not getting found in this app.

As far as I can tell, there is no functionality for push notifications, NFC, or beacons at all. There's no apparent way to set an itinerary, or check out special events going on during specific dates.

This article gives some insight into what a great mobile app for a city would look like. And, I think they're right on target. But, of course, it comes at a cost, a cost most cities don't see justification in spending. 

But, why waste a few grand on something that no one will use? Just to say you have an app? It would be much wiser to offer the app development team the money necessary to build something truly useful and impressive. Something that gets marketed well, and is used by visitors and citizens alike.

An inviting app will bring advertising dollars from local businesses. And, not just places like restaurants and hotels. Local organizations with an event to promote, companies looking to attract talent, and smaller shops that appeal to travelers and tourists would all like to get in front of this audience...once it exists. This sounds like a project I'd like to be a part of, actually.
Despite many cities and states rolling out standalone mobile applications designed to ramp up tourism and awareness of landmarks, experts believe that they lack the full functionality needed to survive in the competitive travel space, although this may be mitigated by tapping beacon and geo-targeting technology.

The Movie Poster For The Sundance Award Winning Film, Dear White People

An Interview With Designer and Disney Imagineer Nikkolas Smith

"A crucial companion piece to any film is its movie poster which serves to visually communicate the essence of the film and to entice potential audience members to see it in theaters. With such a charged topic as race it is difficult to capture the ethos of Dear White People in a single image.

Designer and Disney Imagineer Nikkolas Smith took up that challenge. After seeing a screening of the film he decided to create a poster which he then emailed to Simien as fan art of the movie. The poster eventually ended up as the official movie poster for the film."
The Sundance award-winning film Dear White People, marking the debut of director Justin Simien, examines the question of race and racism in post-Obama America through a satirical lens. The goal of ...

This simulator allowing fans to replicate Jordan's game winning jump shots sounds amazing! I hope the Jordan brand decides to make this a traveling exhibit now that NBA All-Star weekend is over.

I've gone for the 'cook your own dinner' before. Not my favorite experience, but that's me. Their wine is decent. But, the annual 2-day festival the first weekend in September is an event I never miss. Ever. Great atmosphere to spend the day with friends walking through the vineyard and listening to live music with a bottle of wine.

One of my favorite places to go for lunch when I'm in the area. Great food. The hot and sour soup is something I have to get with my meal every time.

Nice staff. But, I avoid going here because the parking lot is so torn up. Nothing but potholes everywhere getting worse year after year. If they don't care to fix it, I don't care to spend money here.

Went here for an early dinner on Saturday. It has a rustic look with wooden walls and furniture to compliment the wood-fired oven. The lights are in lanterns. Local craft brews on tap. Pizza is great. I liked the service.

First time here this morning. I went through the drive thru and got their "red eye" coffee with shots of espresso. It was really good. The service was friendly, and I like the original menu. I'll be going back again.

The decor of the restaurant is nice. Stone work, aquarium, framed photos of the city, etc. Like many restaurants, the lobby/waiting area is horribly inefficient with people waiting in line to get on the list several minutes before realizing that it wasn't a line at all, just people milling around waiting to be called to their table. The food is pretty much the same cookie-cutter food you would get at any American chain restaurant - you have your burgers, seafood options, appetizers that are the same as anywhere else. I know this doesn't apply to everyone, but there is a real lack of vegetarian options - either a plate full of sides, or the spag-lasagna with marinara instead of meat sauce. At the very least, it would be nice to be able to sub a veggie burger for meat in their burger choices. The food was average - I had onion rings (good batter), chips & queso, spinach dip, salad, and spag-lasagna. Nothing I would have to go back for. The service was good though, and the prices are fair.
