Now You Can Book Salon and Spa Appointments Using Google Maps

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 11:00:00 GMT

(image)

I travel a ton, which means I tend to skip scheduling things like future haircuts while I’m at the salon because I’m not sure I’ll actually be in town when it comes time for the appointment.

(image)

When I headed off to college (longer ago than I care to admit), my dad and I made a deal where he would cover 90% of the cost of tuition and room and board, provided I maintained a 3.0 GPA, didn’t move in with any boys, and we sat down before every semester and talked about my career goals and financial plans after…

Sometimes you end up in a position, for instance, Press Secretary at the White House, that you’re not exactly cut out for. Everyone has to quit a job at some point.

According to a 2010 New Yorker profile, he’s “only around five feet eight, but he seems taller, because he stands with his chest out and his back straight, as if held up by a string.” Wired writer Graham Starr thinks Zuck seems tall for another reason: He stages his photos to…
