Don Dodge, director of business development for Microsoft’s Emerging Business Team, says, “Newspapers should own local search results.”

Rob Hyndman, a Toronto lawyer, disagrees.

The conversation reminded me of why I prefer Yelp over any newspaper’s local reviews section. I always use Yelp before I travel to any U.S. city. I also post reviews there from time to time. Why? To pay them back for all the good advice I have found there.
