This is where all your private Google account data ends up, FYI.
One of the NSA's most powerful tools of mass surveillance makes tracking someone’s Internet usage as easy as entering an email address, and provides no built-in technology to prevent abuse. Today, The Intercept is publishing 48 top-secret and other classified documents about XKEYSCORE dated up to 2013, which shed new light on the breadth, depth and functionality of this critical spy system.

+Arvid Olufsen - You're basically saying that even though there is no evidence whatsoever and even though it would go massively against Google's rational business interests, we should assume they are helping the NSA because "they could be doing anything in secret".

Even if that made any sense, Google's management is really not that good at keeping secrets.

I really need to stop responding to Hangouts that start with "Hello". Inevitably, when I ask "Why are you messaging me?", it ends up being pointless or a spam bot.

If you send a message for the first time to someone, be specific as to the purpose right in the opening message so it's obvious you're not a spammer.
 
Friendly reminder that if you are trying to contact me outside of G+, such as on hangouts, email, or other personal communication methods, get to your point. I do not respond to 'hi' 'hello beautiful' 'hey sexy' and especially not 'hai'. Hai sounds creepy coming from a guy who isn't Japanese or Stitch. If you want to talk tech, wonderful, but start with it. I don't need girl in an elevator talk.

And if you try to contact me using a nice direct inquiry that seems legitimate (first, you should just privately share a post on G+ as that will likely reach me quicker), your message may be stuck in my Invites folder, which I do not check every day.

So, Google+ integration with Gmail, YouTube, and Search/Knowledge Graph all seem to be being deprecated gradually. G+ is being isolated from the rest of the Google empire.

Given that G+ makes no money itself, and will have less ties into those products that do, I think it is very real to consider the possibility that Google is planning on shuttering Google+. As Google+ aficionados that we are, that begs the question: Where do we go?

I really don't like G+ anymore. It's slow, it's buggy, and Google keeps making it more difficult to follow my friends' posts. But I'm here mostly because of all of you that I talk to. Where would you go if Google+ was to get a shutdown date?

Neither Facebook or Twitter have a particularly strong traction with me. Facebook emphasizes friends and friends of friends communication only, whereas I enjoy a lot of public interaction here. And Twitter's character limit makes commentary too short for real intellectual discourse. What are your thoughts?

+Aaron Glett People you have in your circles are already added to your contacts list. I doubt things will ever be automatically shared that'd be a privacy nightmare.

I no longer like Skype. If you block a person in a group chat, you can mutually still see each others messages in group chats. :/

Introduction
Fair warning, if I choose to circle you, I will probably regularly comment on you too. It's what I do.

I am an IT geek, a gamer, and a scifi nerd. I have --Asperger's Syndrome-- autism (seriously, no strikethrough here?), my cute little mental disorder that is responsible for my peculiar obsession with minor details and ability to remember excessively complex numerical systems.


I'm an avid Android user, possessing multiple Androids, in addition to the variety of Windows computers I run on a daily basis. I have an odd obsession with 2.5" SATA hard drives, don't ask why.

A list of my computers can be found at http://www.ocdtrekkie.com/machines.php

And if this is Navi, I still love you.

A great addition to any Paris vacation. We had a lot of fun exploring their video games exhibition and their submarine! A particular bonus was number of displays that were available in English as well as French.

Reasonably priced buffet. Food is decent/good, selection is small though. Drinks are free. Dining area is reminiscent of a cafeteria.

A decent-priced hotel in an extremely convenient location in downtown San Francisco. I was impressed by the service and style of this hotel located in this over one-hundred year-old building. RFID-based room keys and such were a nice novelty. On the downside, my heater did not work, and was not repaired during my four-night stay. They did provide me extra blankets. And the walls are very thin. One morning I awoke to the couple in the adjoining room (which is only a single door for separation) having some fun in bed.

Let me preface by saying that I don't like Mexican food. But that being said... Despite that it was too spicy for my tastes, the salmon I had was incredible. Service was great, and honestly, the prices were quite fair as well.

I was looking for somewhere relatively cheap in an area where food is a lot more expensive than home. For less than the cost of fast food, Jasmin's Cafe provided a great meal, that was freshly-prepared. A worthwhile place to grab a meal while near Union Square.

Easily the nicest hotel I've stayed in. Hotel Avante has a great atmosphere, and great service. The cleaning staff always leaves a friendly note with a couple pieces of candy behind. The hotel is geared towards "creative people", with Idea notepads around the room, as well as various puzzles. Wi-Fi is as good as at home or better. A truly enjoyable stay.
