A very interesting look (no pun intended) at local search results using eye-tracking

An iUpgrade

We have a pattern we follow around here for upgrades to Apple products... we skip a version of each device, wait for it to come out, go to the Apple store and play with it, wait to see if there are any show-stopper negative reviews/flaws... if after a week or two if all goes well, and we are happy, we buy it :)

It's not like we miss out on the fanfare. When it's a new device that we love the idea of, we do the whole standing in huge lines around the block on release day. We did it for the first iPhone, and the first iPad.

Working it this way though, we've never felt like we got duped into buying the next best thing in an upgrade cycle. We've never been disappointed because it is only a slight upgrade form the last one, never an ounce of buyer remorse, and never unhappy with the new device we bring home. So, yep, the iPhone 4S looks like it will be a nice upgrade (from our 3GS), and I'm looking forward to the huge bump in features...

...if all goes well in the next few weeks ;)

Introduction
SMB Internet marketing consultant w/ a 17 year background in design and development for the web. I run Enhanced Path Marketing here in NYC with my lovely wife


The Longer Version

The Internet has been home since 1994 (personal site launched), and work since 1996 (the first site I designed professionally). Internet marketing for small business is what I do, and I love it. I am the SEO, design, and code half of Enhanced Path Marketing. With the help of my wife (who handles the copy writing, client relations, and project management half), we get to help small businesses grow and gain an understanding of web marketing. It is very rewarding work, and there is nothing quite like a happy client (especially when they say they love you, or call you an angel, that just warms the heart). More and more we work with environmentally conscious businesses. They do good for the world, and we get to help them attract an audience to it. 

Computers are important to me, and I use them for most tasks. PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, they all get daily use around here. I program, mostly in PHP (for the web), and on rare occasion in Objective-C (for iPhone/iPad apps) or Vb (for Windows apps). I've written a couple of programs over the years that have made their way into public use. I'd never thought these programs would be "important" to anyone, though when one got mentioned in a computer security book, and I was contacted by a military communications officer who found the other software useful; I was humbled. I haven't touched either program in years, but I'm glad they've been helpful.

I also enjoy music and listen to quite a bit of it. Anything with a beat will do, but I prefer Rock, Electronic, and Industrial. I have played bass guitar in a few bands over the years, but these days I mostly make my own music using computers.
