I'm using hangouts for all calls. Fortunately I don't use the phone much because these issues still exist and are really irritating.


The Google Hangouts Dialer VoIP Calling feature just released on Android recently is not quite ready for prime time. Here are big 8 issues I found using it.

So now when I post a youtube video to public on G+ it won't show up as a youtube comment and (worse) get responded to on youtube?

This is the best beer drinking bear story you'll read all day.
When state Fish and Wildlife agents in found a black bear passed out on the lawn of Baker Lake Resort in Washington state, there were some clues scattered nearby — dozens of empty cans of beer.

I started at Kiryu Aikido in 2009 after training for over 15 years in a variety of styles. I enjoy the consistent attention to basics and weapon work (staff and wooden sword) and how the weapon movements help our open hand techniques. Andrew Blevins sensei constantly pushes us to improve by both focusing on technical details and working just outside our comfort zones so we can continue to move forward in our understanding of aikido.
