Stumbled on that with the Android App. Could be an interesting feature if you were at a concert or public event so that you could see what others were saying

For those interested in Google+ for business... don't do it yet. Personal profiles used for business will be removed. Business platform coming later. If you want in on the pilot, there is a link below.

Google+ users are a persistent bunch :-).
Here is a quick update on Google+ and businesses:

We have been watching Google+ take shape over the last week and we’ve seen some really great companies get involved. But frankly we know our product as it stands is not optimally suited to their needs. In fact, it was kind of an awkward moment for us when we asked Ford for his (or was it her?) gender!

How users communicate with each other is different from how they communicate with brands, and we want to create an optimal experience for both. We have a great team of engineers actively building an amazing Google+ experience for businesses, and we will have something to show the world later this year.

The business experience we are creating should far exceed the consumer profile in terms of its usefulness to businesses. We just ask for your patience while we build it. In the meantime, we are discouraging businesses from using regular profiles to connect with Google+ users. Our policy team will actively work with profile owners to shut down non-user profiles.

Over the next few months we are going to be running a small experiment with a few marketing partners to see the effect of including brands in the Google+ experience. We’ll begin this pilot with a small number of named partners. If you represent a “non-user entity” (e.g. business, organization, place, team, etc.) and would like to apply for consideration in our limited program (and be amongst the first to be alerted when the business product launches) you can sign up here:

Please keep all of the feedback coming, we are listening and really appreciate the time everyone is putting towards helping us build a better social experience through Google+.

Don't you need a boot to put the gear in? (I'm thinking of the smell...)

via Ciena Corporation "Can you imagine a world without your desktop? Your laptop? What if the only thing on your desk was the newest smartphone? Smartphones are replacing computers as the main way people access the internet. What does this mean for the network long term? Is it good or bad? Why?"

How will this change the telecom market? How does a service provider differentiate if bandwidth is commodity?

A third of all American adults own a smartphone, and a quarter of users do most of their Web surfing on their mobile device.
