Good article about looking past tired link building practices and embracing all that is available to marketers today. Sometimes it is easy to forget how easy it is to share and engage even when you aren't sitting at a computer.

Anyone have any ideas on the potential of Google penalizing sites for rel=author spam? I've seen a few articles addressing sites that give authorship to almost every page they publish, but there hasn't been any talk about repercussions for doing so.

It would seem to me that penalties will eventually be the case. Authorship is used best when attributing meaningful and useful content to it's creator. Not putting your face next to every page on your site.

This looks pretty slick. Microsoft Office Suite and Windows 7 on your iPad. But, $5.99/mo to enable flash. Still, it could be worth it.

I was contemplating different ways to stream Spotify to my speakers when I came across this site that lays all the options out. I think I am going to go the Airport Express route and just use my IPhone to pick songs and playlists.

No more walking across the room to pick songs when I have friends over. Just pass the iPhone around and pick ridiculous music. Perfect.

Ok, I need some help from the Google + masses.

I am trying to verify the email addresses for the different Google + accounts I have at work. This is proving very easy with all of the personal accounts. However, I am receiving error messages whenever I try to verify a brand page. I've tried using all sorts of different emails, but it's the same error over and over. It looks like this:

“An error occurred when sending a verification email to [Email Address].”

I am stuck on this and to further my frustration it has become increasingly difficult to actually google search for help about Google +. This is due to the fact that Google removed the "+" modifier from their search unless you are trying to find a G+ page. So, I have to write out "Google plus" in all my search terms and this leads to much less results and my face in my palm.

So, if anyone has any ideas please comment. Or if you don't please share with anyone you think might.
