In what seems like an effort to aid restaurant goers in scoping out a place to eat (or relate to picky urban foodies who need reassurance that the place they're dining at is actually the best), Google announced this morning that it has acquired the food rating site Zagat.
"Moving forward, Zagat will be a cornerstone of our local offering--delighting people with their impressive array of reviews, ratings and insights," said Marissa Mayer, VP of Local, Maps and Location Services, in a blog post this morning on Google's official BlogSpot. "I'm incredibly excited to collaborate with Zagat to bring the power of Google search and Google Maps to their products and users."
Ready for your summer holiday? Who isn’t? Researching, planning, and booking can, for many, be as much fun as the actual vacation itself. The anticipation, the build-up of excitement, and no opportunity yet for lost luggage, wet weather, or “gastric difficulty.” Regardless of careful planning, once you get there you may need new things to do, places to see, treasures to find. Turns out your iPhone or iPad can be your best travel companion, getting you into places and out of jams. Follow along and you’ll be well on your way to the best vacation ever.
