Yelp Suffers Outage. Now Where Will We Eat?

Yelp may be down for some of you right now. We’re experiencing networking issues, but working to get back up to speed ASAP.
— Yelp (@Yelp) May 16, 2014

Just as thousands of people in the Eastern time zone started casting about for a place to eat lunch today, Yelp suffered an outage.

OMG! Yelp is down! How will I find a mediocre overpriced lunch place today?!?

Google Names Ivy Ross As First Head Of Glass Division

Google has added another executive with retail experience to its Google Glass management team.
Late Thursday night, the company announced that Ivy Ross will become the first Head of Google Glass — the person in charge of the overall Glass division. Ross will start at Google on Monday (May 19).
She has VP-level experience at The Gap, Old Navy and Mattel, in addition to being the Chief Creative Officer at The Disney Store. Most recently, Ross was CMO at She talked about that experience in a letter to current Glass Explorers:
I have spent my career — Calvin Klein, Swatch, Coach, Mattel, Bausch & Lomb, Gap and, most recently, — at the intersection of design and marketing, trying to answer questions like this in different ways, for different products.

Advanced Gmail Filters That Aren’t Available in Gmail

Gmail filters help you automatically sort email messages based on rules. So if your boss has sent an email message, the filter can mark it as important. If the email has the word “Unsubscribe” somewhere in the message body, it can be marked as a promotional message and so on.
How to Create Advanced Gmail Filters
While the built-in Gmail filters are powerful, they do have certain limitations.
For instance, you cannot have a Gmail filter that does case-sensitive search. It will treat WHO and who as same. Gmail filters won’t do pattern matching (regular expressions) so you cannot have a filter for messages that contain phone numbers.
We often get spam messages that have a few dozen addresses in the TO and CC fields but there’s no filter to automatically redirect such messages to the SPAM folder of Gmail. That’s where Google Scripts can help. You can setup advanced filters that aren’t available in the native version of Gmail.

What you see above is a set of 10 Gmail filters that were created wi…
