Maybe the idiots journalists that keep claiming that The Plus is dead should take a look at this!
 
Bringing the new Google+ to more people

Last November, (http://goo.gl/Yn6mjA) we introduced a preview on web of a fully redesigned Google+ to make it easier for people to discover and connect around unique and interesting things. From a Japanese astronaut sharing his experience in the International Space Station (http://goo.gl/JZQ7wH) to food lovers sharing their passion for breadmaking (http://goo.gl/wEh0C8), people are using Google+ to explore their interests more than ever.

Since introducing the new version, twice as many Collections are followed per day and there are 1.6 million daily new Community joins. Many of you have also shared feedback and requests, and we’ve been listening (http://goo.gl/rPpAzY).

Today, we’re announcing three new updates for Google+.

First, some new features. You can now have richer conversations by adding links and photos to your comments. We’re also offering Community owners and moderators more control over who posts what with approved posting. Finally, we're launching a new notifications center on the web where you can see and manage your recent activity on Google+. These features will be available across the web, Android and iOS in the coming weeks.

Second, if you haven’t yet previewed the new Google+, over the next few days we’ll upgrade you to the experience when you sign in on the web. You’ll still be able to toggle back to classic Google+ for the time being.

Finally, businesses have told us that they’ve found Google+ to be a valuable way to help employees share ideas and expertise via Collections and Communities, and we’re looking forward to making it available to more organizations. Today, Google Apps users already using Google+ (http://goo.gl/GxGRXo) will also see the new experience (goo.gl/IJtbah) when they sign in and in the next few weeks, Google+ will become a core Google for Work service.

From the interesting (http://goo.gl/yP2QJp), to the surprising (http://goo.gl/3dk0Xs), and the delightful (goo.gl/gix7s6), we hope Google+ continues to help you discover amazing things from passionate people.

Nexus baby!
 
Keep your connection speed high and your data bill low with Wi-Fi Assistant, a feature that allows you to automatically and securely connect to more than a million, free open Wi-Fi hotspots. Originally a Project Fi exclusive feature, we are now expanding Wi-Fi Assistant to all Nexus users in the United States, Canada, Mexico, UK and Nordic countries. This will roll out to users over the next few weeks. Learn more: http://goo.gl/8I4wcA

Oh, well, that sounds like a good update, then. Grab it by the processor, when it's available for you.

That moment when you realize you forgot to pack your toiletry kit.

I'm not living in Philly but this is absurd! These people put their life on the line for you and you steal from them?
 
Keep an eye out:
Tinicum Township Police said the stolen U-Haul is a 16 foot long Ford F-450 with Arizona license plate AD-21774. Anyone with information is asked to call Sgt. James Simpkins, Jr. at 610-521-3830.
#Cycling  
The theft happened hours before the group's annual Soldier Ride in Philadelphia.

#FREE through 9/2!

"A frightening tale worth reading!"

5 ★

"McAllister has done it again, except this one leans a bit more toward the horror end of Scifi. I really like the main character in these books who is a detective who has an unusual power, he can see murders happen. Stage fright is frightful and not for the squeamish, but hang in there for a well crafted tale with characters you will look forward to meeting again."
-Theresa Snyder

The truth that this article speaks of regarding Black Lives Matter can be applied to so many other ”movements” in the US that it's not even funny. Plain and simple people, everyone's life should matter all the time. Not just when it's convenient for you to get attention...

... Mass hysteria...


I think Microsoft's newest leader is just what was headed to keep the company relevant. Balmer was expecting the world to continue using their products because they've always used them, he was never going to change. Now it's being positioned for the long term, as a services company. It's the way of the future where the computing device isn't important because everything will run in the cloud...
 
#Microsoft Open-Sources #PowerShell , on #Linux—World Turned Upside-Down
It’s never going to replace Bash, Perl or Python. But for Microsoft-centric dev/ops types, it promises to be a wonderful widget in the toolbag. Especially as more workloads move to “the cloud.”
Happy Friday, everyone. And hold on tight. In today’s #ITNP , we predict dogs and cats living together…

Microsoft PowerShell on Linux and macOS—yes, it’s now open source. If you think the world’s gone mad, you might be right. For die-hard Linux-heads, it’s never going to replace Bash, Perl or Python. But for Microsoft-centric dev/ops types, it promises to be a wonderful widget in the toolbag. Especially as more workloads move to “the cloud.”

And yet another reason I'm glad I switched.

It kills me that one of the wealthiest companies in the world is trying to nickel and dime their customers to death. And because they do this, most other carriers are going to follow suit which means we'll all be screwed in the long run...
Verizon sought $1 to $2 per device, would install apps on Android phones.

It was an alright room for the price. Would have been better if the heater in the room wasn't so loud and if breakfast was earlier than 8am.

Much better then going fast food for about the same price. Small menu but everything I've had is really good.

Used to be decent BBQ, no longer worth even considering! The wife's brisket was chewy and looked like it was reheated. My pulled pork was flavored with liquid smoke. Horribly small kid's menu with only one BBQ option! Don't waste your hard earned money...
