When Cops Tweet
good and good for you
Kansas City Royal fans have waited 29 years to watch their team make another post-season appearance, so when the opportunity presented itself last night, they were determined to see it.

Good things come to those areas blessed with Google Fiber, and so it is with Kansas City. Last summer, GOOG the Beneficent gifted the metropolitan area with its own brand of ultra high-speed Internet. Local startups have already been taking advantage of Google Fiber’s 100x speed, but there is more.
So very much more.
Few social networks are as adroit at triggering man’s aspirational impulse as Pinterest. Of course, different people covet different things.

For weeks, Google has been teasing us with a landing page for “Google Fiber.” With a name like that, one might picture a roughage-based breakfast (Googl-Os!) or something better left to the laxative aisle in your friendly, neighborhood Duane Reade.

Google flips the switch on its experimental high-speed Internet network in Kansas City on Thursday, and to celebrate, the company has released one of its cutesy commercials.
Unfortunately, we are too distracted by the travesty that is that abysmally bad cover of the Leiber and Stoller classic “Kansas City” to even pay attention to the content. Via AllThingsD:
