Google’s Music Beta first look: it’s miserable Google’s Music Beta is supposed to provide users with a way to access the music anywhere, anytime as easily as physically possible.

It’s a Saturday and you want to watch your favorite YouTube star’s show , a big Hollywood movie , a clip of your friend’s weekend in Austin, a newly-released music video , a global sporting event , a live concert and breaking news from Japan .

I am a big advocate of low-cost virtual assistant program Fancyhands: $35 per month for up to 15 tasks requested by email. I’ve posted some pretty complicated requests over the last 6 months or so that I’ve been subscribed. People ask me about the service often, so I thought I’d show readers here how it’s been going over the last few months.

Archaeologists Find 17 Pyramids, 1K Tombs, 3K Settlements Using Online Satellite Images Exceeding the discovery of 2,000 new archaeological sites using Google Earth, scientists have now found 17 Egyptian pyramids, 1,000 tombs and 3,000 Nile Delta settlements previously lost to sand and time. The tech-happy group from the University of Alabama purchased imagery online from orbiting satellites and used image-filtering software to identify the locations, which they spot-checked and test-excavated in person. Pulling down images from a satellite orbiting at a height of 400 miles but which can capture objects less than a yard across, the scientists used infrared imaging to highlight differences in soil density. Given their use of denser mud brick for much of their construction needs, the ancient Egyptians left clear evidence of structures no longer visible to the naked eye. These include the streets of the legendary city of Tanis, used as a major plot point in the adventure film, "Raiders of the Lost Ark."

A few weeks ago I wrote about United Linen, a professional laundry service. Looking back, I think there are some valuable lessons small businesses should learn from they way United embraces and supports their community. United shows a commitment to its physical community in various ways. For example, they began posting hometown team sports scores through their social media channels, and more recently, they started promoting the local symphony orchestra. During winter, United gets road conditions from their truck drivers and reports back to residents. In short, United uses social media to report on and champion their local community.
