Google has patented the ability to create an "edge" or "relationship" between keywords (ads) and based on the performance of competitor keywords, make a recommendation to an "analyst" what the best keyword strategy should be. Doesn't sound ground breaking, but I want to know who'll get access to this insight; Google reps or account handlers?

Great read from the "other side". 

I think if you have to apologies at the start of an article with "First off, this is not a rant against media agencies or against communications planners" then it probably is a rant.

It was a rant, a nice one.

Industry needs clarity; is "mobile", mobiles and tablets or mobiles-only. I think laptops and tablets should be under "desktop".

Going on holiday? This Google patent plans to estimate where you are travelling too and serve you updated weather conditions - probably by a Card. http://www.freshpatents.com/-dt20150507ptan20150127263.php#top

Google's stopped emboldening keywords you searched for in snippets. When did this happen or is it a test? #ctr

Google's going to offer photographic tours using your geo-tagged photography. The idea is that when you take a picture, you don't present the full view of the target. This crowd sources others pictures to then generate a tour. Exploring the world's wonders should become easier.

Really smart hotel. Location is great, rooms are stylish and the restaurant is tasty. Staff at front desk were nice too!

Excellent stay. Sea views are great. Not far from airport. You can hear the traffic during rush hour, but Nice is a city - so you expect that. Rooftop pool and bar are a major bonus.
