Google Project Fi came on my radar recently. (HT: Andrew Hyde)
Given where we live in Wisconsin, this looked like a great option for us, who don’t have a cell phone currently. Lower costs, good coverage and what appear to be good phones to select, it all seems to be a great fit.
According to this map from the Project Fi site, we have coverage. The green shaded area shows coverage.
Then proceeding to get signed up for the Project Fi service I get this screen.
My question becomes, which is it Google? I understand this is your service and you get to set the qualifications for said service. However, you show me that your service coverage is available in my area, and yet when I attempt so sign up, nope, no service for me.
Now we continue to seek a quality cell phone service.
The ads the google is placing at the top of one of my gmail areas are in no way related to anything I’m looking for. Neither are they anything related. Massive #FAIL Google.

Why this alert box appears from time to time is annoying and tells me no useful information.
First off, I’m not editing a cell. Were I doing so google docs alreay knows that “All changes saved in Drive.” So why the alert box?
This is only sightly annoying and certainly not nearly as annoying as the continued pop up, pop under and other ad assaults we endure each and every day as we surf the web.
It is now 2013 and no developer has figured out the key to block the ads? What has happened to innovation in technology?
