    Mattress Firm has its headquarters here. They actually call them the "bedquarters". I shit you not.

    There are MF stores across the street from each other. They bought competitors and made them all MFs, so there are stores adjacent to each other in the same strip mall. It became the subject of speculation and ridicule. Some wag suggested renaming "Montrose" to "Mattrose". The company explained that each store was like a billboard, keeping the MF name in people's heads. Later they accused a group of their own employees of defrauding them in a real estate kickback scheme that led to all of these useless stores.

    You can delete the app, but you'll always have everything that goes along with Google still in cyberspace

    Yes. But they are turning it off within a year. I was specifically referring to my google+ and the space it is taking on my 32Gb iPad and lesserly on my iPhone.
