As with anything Google creates, their commercials tend to hit you right in the feelings. They've had "Dear Sophie," where parents chronicle their child's life through Google videos, documents, and calendars; "Dog," where a family finds a stray dog and adopts him; "Parisian Love," where two people fall in love in Paris; "Google Chrome: Jess Time," which tells the story of a father/daughter who recently lost their wife/mother; and "Brother and Sister," which follows a sibling rivalry-turned-friendship. So it's hardly surprising that they're latest commercial focuses on how wonderful moms are, just in time for Mother's Day.
What do you think? And don't forget: tomorrow is Mother's Day, so do something nice for the wonderful women in your life!

Mothers Day is now less than a week away, and many of us (yes us, I'm including myself), are still trying to figure out what gift to get for mom on her special day. There is no perfect answer, because everyone is different, but here are some ideas that may help you figure out what you want to get:
Flowers - Getting your mom some flowers is a must. Most moms love flowers, but if all you are planning on getting is flowers, you may want to keep thinking. Flowers are good; flowers plus something else is great.
Candy - There are tons of options for the mom with a sweet tooth. Things like chocolate or gummy bears are always welcome, but if you want to step-up your game try sending her a candy-gram. That would help make a simple gift like candy become awesome.
Jewelry - I know my mom is a sucker for jewelry, as many are. There are so many different options, but if you find the perfect one for your mom she will be bragging about it all year.
This week we're talking about Mother's Day and helping out everyone that hasn't gotten something yet. Meanwhile, a mom watches The Matrix for the first time and then describes it, and in the process comes up with a unique re-telling. Finally, Iron Man 3 is already smash hit.
