The New Haven line of Metro North is not a subway. Had this been an NYC subway conductor, Ms. Raju would have been summarily dispatched from the train before the iPhone camera was even on.
I vote for the profiles being fake.
"And it seemed real. It seemed like us and it seemed like, well, our home. If not Arizona, then a land not too far away. Where all parents are strong and wise and capable and all children are happy and beloved. I don't know. Maybe it was Utah. "
Ot maybe not. Holy Bing lookalike + scrollomatic widgets = nightmare!
Botched launch by my perspective. Was on "[plus]1" webmaster waiting list... got e-mail from Google telling me to "get the code" at:
First attempt to click through: 404 page (the result of various redirections to a URL that spelled it "buton")
Next attempt (hours later): redirect loop between 2 URLs
Current attempt: "Too many redirects occurred" error
All done on a Mac. Same behavior observed in Chrome as Safari (current behavior: "This webpage has a redirect loop").
What a joke. Maybe they should just stick to search, e-mail, advertising, and other webmonkey work. For what it's worth, if the "[plus]" character is percent encoded in the URL with "[percent]2b", at least you can visit the page describing how to add "[plus]1" code. I'd put the encoded link here, but again, this editor is mangling it after I save it.
Either I'm totally wrong about URL encoding and special characters, or I'm the only person on the planet having this problem. I think the "[plus]" is getting rendered as a space by browser clients, at least on the Mac side (e.g. http://webdesign.about.com/od/forms/a/url_encodin... and that's the source of the problem. Yet another reason that "[plus]1" is a dumb-ass name for a product.
