Thoughts? Do you agree?
Though it’s been declared over more times than we can count, it looks like Google’s social network is finally on death’s door.

G+ Questions - Mobile  - 
 
I see a lot of people posting polls for votes and can't find a way to do so on iOS app. Is that because it's not possible or am I missing something.

+Fernando Maldonado They haven't stopped supporting it. It is just on a different cycle from Android. I would not recommend giving up hope.

As hangouts become a Google+ independent service, and photos become a Google+ indEpendent service, has the meaning of Google+ changed?

With the introduction of real identities, Google+ was an upgrade to a typically Google account ... A plus version of your Google account if you will ... Google+. It brought additional features to your Google account that a plain Google account did not ie the ability to share posts between accounts, hangout with friends, manage photos.

Everything that made a Google+ account a plus account is now available with just a normal Google account ... The way it should have been in the first place. Granted, upgrading to a Google+ account made sense except that this was not seen as an upgrade for Google users, but instead seen as a sign up to a social network. As a result, people just refused to sign up for another social network and lost access to the plus version features.

Google has now rightly realised that these plus version features should not be confined to an upgraded Google account, but rather to everyone using a Google account.

So if the + in Google is gone, and all Google accounts are equal (with hangouts, photos and real identities being drawn out of Google+) then what is left in the plus portfolio? Nothing but streams of posts.

As a result, I suspect that a Google+ account will fall away, and Google+ itself will be replaced with Google Hangouts, Google Photos and Google Streams.

Is this the end of the substance that we know as Google+, and the beginning of its successor, Google Streams. What are your thoughts?

T-Mobile is petition again to ensure that the next major auction helps - not hinders - competition. 

http://www.tmonews.com/2015/02/t-mobile-yet-again-petitions-fcc-to-change-600mhz-auction-rules-to-promote-competition/
In a filing to the FCC published on Friday, T-Mobile yet again put a case forward for how it thinks the next major low spectrum auction should be run. As it stands, T-Mo doesn’t think that the Commission is setting enough spectrum aside for the smaller carriers, or carriers who don’t already have shedloads of hoarded spectrum. In a

Your Feature Requests  - 
 
I'm guessing my question would fall into the feature request.... Any idea when the G+ app on iOS will be getting an update? I really love how Google has kind of changed it to a hub for all Google services but hate using it on my iPhone. (Looks like it stuck on iOS 6!) It really seems like its the only app that Google doesn't update on the app store.

So Google+ updating its iOS app isn't suitable for a section of a community speculating on updates of said app? Is it because I'm asking about the iOS version? I read the guidelines and I don't see how this can be a problem.

I can't believe how Sony is completely dominating with the ps4. And this chart shows why Nintendo isn't making games for Android or iOS.
 
I just read an article claiming PS4 was the top selling console in February, so it prompt me to do the research and see. Let me start off by saying that I LOVE all my 8th gen systems. I have my own personal preferences, but I acknowledge each has their own unique differences and that's why different people can buy different ones.

That being said. How is PS4 pulling so far ahead of XB1 despite costing $50 more? I would have expected PS to be favored in Japan and even Europe because of the way its been going since launch. But I really thought XB1 picked up since it was the best selling console in the US in December. When it decided to maintain the price drop, I saw that sticking.

Now, I'm not here to say I hope XB1 beats out PS4. I prefer the ps4 myself, so the more people who have one to play with me online, the merrier. However, (and this is far from a dismal amount), what do you guys think is making the XB1 sell so much less? I preferred the PS3 over the 360, but PS3 sold almost half that of Xbox 360 systems in the US. PS3 was just my personal choice in platform. What I want to know though, is what is drawing previous 360 and Wii owners from last gen to buy PS4. What is Wii U or XB1 not cutting it why people didn't stick with their last generation preferred console?

Its three things I think. 1. Microsoft burnt fans with the initial "deal with it" attitude. 2. Nintendo lost the hardcore audience last generation by catering to the casual auidence. This casual audience has now moved on to mobile and don't care to get a new game system. Nintendo is still fighting to win back the hardcore crowd. Then the "its what my friends have" aspect that 360 had last gen. People might not really care which console they get, but if the whole group of friends are gaming online on PS4, the others will pick up what their friends have.

Add that in, plus the fact that Sony started this generation humble. They didn't do what they did with ps3 and feel they couldn't get knocked off their high horse (something Microsoft is learning the lesson of now). My .02.

I will never vote for these racist cavemen. The Republican Party is still stuck in 1954.
