I really don't like how Google keeps making their services more useless and unreliable. First they lobotomised their awesome G+ Photos platform, and now they're removing one of the key features from G+, namely Events. Some of my friends only use the Events feature on Google+, and pretty much nothing else.
Cognitive dissonance: it somehow feels like I am expected (on behalf of working at Facebook) to be happy about this news, but that's actually not the attitude I experience here.
Microsoft has that "be at war with everyone else" culture. All I have seen so far here is a lot of love and caring about people. And exiting markets or segments Google doesn't care for always hurts. (I still mourn Reader.)
It's sometimes subtle, but I think lots of small things like using words like people instead of users probably helps work in the message that we care about those our apps and ecosystems serve.
Including things that have measurable negative impact, like the real names policy. There is a lot of internal debate and will power to improve all the things, and being here is a pretty neat vantage point to cheer it on from. :-)
The idea of no upgrades seems shockingly minimal to me.
Note: I am a digital packrat and still have every work file and email since '97 either on my main machine or several of there portable hdd's in the case. This probably explains my horror at being hard limited on storage.
I'll be more comfortable when that can be said again.
As a start, I'll settle for enough world powers agreeing on the problem and getting to work on the solution. I agree that the timeline of the caption in the first poster is off, but that doesn't change what could happen (the second poster) or what should (a unified, decisive and focused response).
What. How did I miss this? Now I really want one. :-)
I still have my old ZX Spectrum, but the keyboard cable is broken, so it's unusable.
