The Internet Solves Another Family Dilemma

We hear all the time the big ways the Internet has changed our lives -- the way we buy things, the instant global communication.

It's also interesting all the smaller ways the Web has helped us in our day-to-day lives. Take getting directions. It used to be we would have look at maps or call ahead to someone to get driving directions. Now we can look up a route online at any time and be prepared when we venture out to somewhere new.

Now local search solves another of my family's small dilemmas, as well. That's the problem of where to go out to eat. We might want to go out, but we might not agree, or we might want to go out somewhere, but no one has a really clear sense of what they want.

It used to be that in those cases, we might just get in the car and drive around the neighborhood, hoping to get a good idea of where we wanted to stop in. But a website that acts as a quick and easy local yellowpages puts a variety of local restaurants right in front of us.

No more frustrated hunting and searching. Now sitting at home first we can pull up the site and talk amongst ourselves and settle on a restaurant before going out. We can even see how the restaurants are rated -- and rate them ourselves, too.
