You're standing dazed on a street corner in Palo Alto. Suddenly you realize, 'Oh crap, I need to rent a car so I can rendezvous with the guys at Fronty's Meat Market!!' You whip out your Nexus One, search for car rentals, and bingo! A hyperlocal ad for an Enterprise location just half a mile away appears.
Now you've got your wheels, and the Donbot won't have to teach you a lesson.
If you happen to live in a metropolitan area, this is actually pretty cool. Sure, they're ads, but if they can be this relevant the majority of the time, they're pretty dang useful.
Well, useful to a lot of you, anyway. I'm not certain there are a lot of hyperlocal Google Mobile Ads being served for northern Manitoba, so I won't be getting much use out of them.Read | Permalink | Email this | Comments
