Liz Alton Absolutely, George. I think an apprehension over the project due to specific features is, as you say, part of an old discussion. The question is more about how those services are delivered and what that means for how we interact. I'll be curious, to your point, to see who does object on the basis of individual features like GPS though.
Liz Alton Alex, you raise an excellent point here. I'm interested to see (haha) the same thing. One thing that's interesting about this project is that it's something that many others are also trying to accomplish - so it seems like if the project is set to happen, Google is a natural leader to get it done. Thanks for the comment!
Liz Alton Hi Max - Absolutely! There's risk in every advertising decision a business owner makes. The question is whether the ROI is worth it on the deals, relating the cost back to the business generated. The reactions seem mixed. There are a variety of different business models that seem to be springing up around participating in deal sites. It will be interesting to see how the industry continues to evolve. Best, Liz
