Great post on HOA.
 
What is the difference between an UNLISTED and PRIVATE Hangout On Air?

You're probably going to see a lot of excited posts about Private HOAs now being possible. In fact they have been available since December '13/January '14. 

What is new is that if you drop public from the Audience you can create a scheduled HOA that will create an unlisted YouTube video.

Till now this functionality has been available via YouTube so the exciting part isn't that it's available, but that it is now available via the SHOAE form. (blue button ➤ http://goo.gl/eXEBvU)

Remember that there is a live video stream involved in a HOA.
A private HOA secures that stream. Unlisted does not.

This event form was created using the technique for making an unlisted video (http://goo.gl/XoxUdk). The video is unlisted but you can watch it right? This means that if you create an event this way, anyone with access to the event page URL or YouTube URL can watch the unlisted video at any time, even during the live broadcast.

Note that you can view that event form in a browser that isn't even logged into G+ using the "Event Page" link. Not very private at all, is it?

If that isn't what you want then you might want to look into setting up a private HOA instead.

Actually, those technical issues are definitely worth another google HOA.

+Molly Richardson good point! Don't be afraid to play with a hangout, you aren't broadcasting when you start it. That's what +Sarah Santacroce and I meant by the "green room". 

In fact the interface for private video calls is the same, so you could launch one of those to test lighting, etc.

+Agatha C. Melvin I've tried locating some info on that and the advice ranges from desk lamps to professional LED broadcast lighting systems.

One thing to remember is that different types of bulbs/lamps will have a color temperature that may not be very flattering. Certain types of fluorescent and LED lighting might make you look pale.

There are also filters available from the hangout window but they will load your processor. If you have a fast powerful computer, they won't matter so you can use them.

If you have an older system, using the built in filters might cause you to get a little "laggy".

If we could figure out a way to harness the energy from these powerful storms for later use, we might be onto something that could minimize the cost that these storms incur. Just a thought!

Since I've been upgraded to Android 4.4, it has pushed email notifications on my computer, but there are no instructions on how to stop this from happening. Can someone assist? 

FYI: This notification is off on my gmail account, so no luck in stopping it there.

+Colin Leong Pushbullet replied promptly to my questions. Issue has been resolved satisfactorily. You have to directly to the Pushbullet app on your phone. Then, click on the 3 dots to access their settings, then choose settings again. You can then choose to select or unselect the apps you want to have the two way notification, thus reducing all the redundant notifications showing up on your PC. So if you want to give it another whirl, it should work quite smoothly. Cheers!
