Also, Google just tried to "upgrade" my Google Talk to Hangouts in Gmail again without my permission. The Revert option is still there, thankfully. But interesting observation: Hangouts only shows about five people available (green circle) from my contacts. Talk shows close to forty. There's a HUGE amount of information that you lose access to when you switch to Hangouts. It disconnects you from people you know. #hangouts

+David Roszkowski Plus is too memory-intensive. Easier to just keep Talk in Gmail.

So, does Gmail no longer natively preview PDF attachments anymore? It said it couldn't preview the download, but suggested third party Drive apps as an alternative? Why does Google keep crippling their own products?

This is a huge provision to be aware of: How a company will handle your data if they're acquired or go bankrupt.
Some consumer websites say they will not sell users’ data, but unrestricted-data clauses allow them to transfer it if a merger or other transaction occurs.

Tim Wu is kinda a big deal, though in fairness, Yelp is part of this study, which they're obviously one of the most infringed parties by Google's recent behavior.
An anonymous reader writes: Columbia Law School professor Tim Wu — the man who coined the term "network neutrality" — has published a new study suggesting that Google's new method of putting answers to simple search queries at the top of the results page is anticompetitive and harmful to...

Also, the metric they used, "clicks" doesn't tell you anything about quality.  It's actually, a shockingly bad metric to based this kind of conclusion.

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. :/

Microsoft's CodePlex seems to perform amazingly poorly these days. I often cannot even get a page to load on it. Since they're embracing GitHub now, and clearly they have nobody ensuring the hamsters are still working at CodePlex, they should probably migrate all their stuff and close that sucker down.

The Supreme Court denied a Google Inc. appeal that sought to stop a billion-dollar Oracle Corp. lawsuit by seeking limits on software copyright protections.

Jake, that is only 1 small facet of the issue.  The primary issue will be killing innovation, preserving the big players, etc.  Switching providers will now be harder because you will have less options.

+ʞɐıuzoʍ ǝʌǝʇs has taken the most... unique approach to the topic I've seen. That robots will take over... but that they'll treat us as pets and nuture and care for us.
Speaking at the Freescale Technology Forum about the growth of artificial intelligence, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has claimed that one day robots will be in charge and will treat humans as their pets.

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.
