Buzz Out Loud 1327: Have a little Gap-bone (podcast)

On today's show, all the ways Google is going to take over the world (even though some of them might be good), and Amazon is bringing back the short story, the essay, and the self-published manifesto. I'm working on mine as we speak. Plus, lawyers get rich, and why on earth would people get excited about a Gap logo, and even worse, why would Gap cave? --Molly

I was listening to show 1325 where Google Gets a C- From the Better Business Bureau and I had an idea that Google is missing out on. Google could offer phone tech support and launch a new advertising platform, “Adwords for hold queues” or maybe just a preroll targeted ad before your call.

Thank you for holding, Google tech support will be with you shortly, this call was brought to you by Best Buy….
