How did people survive without Google? A colleague, Bill Harbaugh, emails:
I stink, and I needed a Laundromat in Lyon. Google translate says that's called a laverie in French. Google maps says there's one 4 blocks away. Is it open on Sunday? Laundromats don't have websites. But Google street views shows the front door - Ouvert 7 Jours.
Then the washing machine swallowed my last Euros.
