I think that anyone who has browsed YouTube can say that at some point they got distracted by something random. I do too, but today (like many days) I found something cool. I enjoy riding on / in wheeled vehicles. I also li...

When do Map Pin Location Changes take effect?

I try to do some editing daily. Today I visited half-a-dozen businesses and made some edits to a few others. The photos, phone numbers, address, and hours changes often show immediately. But things like Point Location on the Map, sometimes they never change, or take weeks to change.

The example of which I am thinking is for Santa Clara Limos. The address listed is actually for an entire apartment complex. It might be possible that the owner of Santa Clara Limos also owns the apartment complex, but I cannot find that anywhere on the Limo website. I've marked the listing at "Never Existed", but that was over a week ago and no change has yet posted.

Today I discovered a feature in the Local Guides app that shows where I can confirm changes made by other Local Guides. I'm sure that confirmation via non-collaboration is helpful to Google, like a double blind test. But I'm curious as to how many blind updates are needed to confirm?

Aye, but for production environments, there should always be safeguards. I'd rather there be an extra step, than a lot of misinformation.

I have many Android devices (more than most people might ever own). It's a passion of mine. And so, having many I have some bare minimum number of apps that must go onto each. These are those apps.
There's no doubt to anyone that knows me, I'm an Android Fanatic. I wear the shirts, I have the gear, I hack the gear, I am the... well... no I'm not an Android, and I don't want to be one... but I think it's awesome.. *pict...

Realizing that I talk to people every day about the stuff that I think is cool... And not everyone is so enthusiastic as I am. So, taking it to the Web, where I'm sure there is at least one other person who thinks this stuff is awesome!!

This is not a review, since I don't have the unit yet, but hopefully soon.
To anyone else it might have been just another piece of Chinese junk, but to me, it is GENIUS. The Gole1 ("Goal"? "Goalie"? "Go-lay"?) is a Mini PC for certain, but it has embedded in the top a capacitive touch screen that o...

YELP is a BAD REFERENCE

I would like to make a note to other's that it is important to NEVER USE YELP AS A REFERENCE FOR GOOGLE MAPS. Although Yelp can be accurate, the best way to find out is to check the actual location, or call if possible.

Sorry if my post was confusing, I don't mean to "demean" Yelp as a service to people who want to use it.

Presentation and appearance is decent, it looks and smells like a Subway. I'm editing my prior review to say that I was wrong about this Subway. In early September I visited this location and found a very different experience despite the staff not being different. The distinction is that the customers before me apparently spoke the same native language as the service personnel. (I believe it is Hindi). Watching the interaction between women behind the counter and the women customers was very different from my prior experiences. It was cheerful and polite. And once it was my turn, the cheer did not cease. I see now that it was merely my alternative perspective that rated this shop poorly. It's a good shop and good people.

Questionable Business Practices I frequent the grocery store in this strip mall, and have once visited this Taco Bell. The shop is tiny, one of the smallest I've ever seen. On the day that I visited it was warmer than 90 F degrees outside, inside it was like a convection oven (there were fans, but it was very hot). The food did not agree with me. And, so I will not be returning soon. There are several other Taco Bells nearby, I recommend that you visit a different one.

Best Customer Service at a Panera This location is by favorite for several reasons. But before I get to those reasons, I will say that I have driven up to 12 miles out of my way to go to this location because the service is so good. (1) The Register Clerks are always jovial and ameliorative. I've never had less than an excellent experience (in more than a dozen visits) (2) The Preparation team always gives extra of whatever. There's no skimping on any additive, sauce, topping, etc... (3) If there's a mistake in the order, it will be pushed to the head of the line and corrected immediately, at no charge Yes, the food is great. I love the restaurant chain, but the service at this location is the absolute best I've ever had (I've visited every locale in the South Bay).

If Status Quo were a locally owned convenience store... ... it would be called Quik Buy Market. I can't say that they had "everything" that I might have wanted, but as organized as this store is, it at least appeared to have it all. The employee was friendly though apparently distracted, Pokemon Go is pretty popular these days.

Exceeds Expectations This Restaurant always seems to be busy when I visit the grocery store next to it. Although to be fair it is across the street from a University. Nevertheless the college crowd isn't just eating whatever they can get, they're frequenting a good restaurant. I've ordered twice from this restaurant and have been quite satisfied both times. Today, I ordered two large pepperoni and the delivery arrived 12 minutes early. Right On!

High Standard of Quality I truly appreciate the attitude that Chick-fil-A takes toward its customers and employees. I feel that I am respected and have value as a customer of this chain restaurant. The company itself appears to value its employees by paying them well for a high level of quality in performance. That being said, I'm not totally a fan of the food. It's good enough for 4-stars. I feel that some people may rate the restaurant higher because the customer service is top-notch. This location is one of the newest locations in Silicon Valley and it is very nice inside and out.

The Original Location for Citti's Florist As one might come to expect from a shop filled with flowers, Citti's Florist is beautiful inside. The simple exterior is a tad deceiving prior to entry although the displays will beckon. The staff are cheerful and pleasant offering a sense of comfort when looking for an arrangement for your particular occasion.
