Just five years ago, some would argue that the best feature search engines had to offer was spell check. Now, among other things, they are able to filter results based on our geographic location at any given moment. We’ve only just begun to realize the potential of these location-based searches, both from a consumer and business standpoint.
What would happen if you combined E.T. with Cloverfield? Well, you’d get Super 8 which is directed by J.J. Abrams and produced by Steven Spielberg.

Yet another burger restaurant opened up in Boca Raton a few months back, called Boardwalk Fresh Burgers and Fries. I decided to check it out the other day, and I must say, it’s a pretty good place. If you’ve ever been to a Five Guys Burgers and Fries you’ll feel somewhat familiar at Boardwalk, as they are remotely similar.

Just the other day, I heard about this strange new website called Fiverr. Apparently, people would list things they were willing to do for five bucks, such as complete a three-minute voice over, wear your t-shirt for a day, make an intro for your video, draw a cartoon, write a short article and so on. This sounded like a great idea for those small business tasks that could be outsourced, so I decided to check it out.
