Easily find 360° videos on YouTube

360° videos are a wonderful way to experience the scene as in real life. We all know the photosphere images that allow us to view a place from all angles. Now imagine that as a video.

Youtube now supports 360° vids and they're easy to find too. +Peggy K​ explains how. The only thing missing now is cardboard support.

Customise your Moto 360
I just love to make my high tech smart watch look like a vintage watch. Old design, new tech.

How about you? Have you done some unusual customisation with your Moto 360? Would love to see pictures.

Bell & Ross Aviation Collection
Still one of my best creations.

Though creation is probably taking too much credit for myself. These are #watchfaces I made for my #Moto360 that were originally designed by Bell & Ross for the Only Watch charity auction taking place in Monaco. The individual pieces are all inspired by instruments for aeronautical navigation and comprise the following: the BR01 Horizon, Altimeter and Turn Coordinator, created in 2012, and the BR01 Heading Indicator, Airspeed and Climb, created in 2013.

All parts of these watch faces have been created in #Inkscape and put together with #WatchMaker . They are created for the Moto 360, but should fit all round #AndroidWear smart watches. For all watches other than the Moto 360 you'll have to delete the shadow I added at the bottom to soften the impact of the flat tire somewhat. That's easily done within +WatchMaker​​.

You can find them all in my +FaceRepo​​ collection: http://goo.gl/x69r57

May the Plus be with you,
+Jens Graikowski​​​

Our education system
It's about time for some serious changes.

Being the father of two teenage daughters I sometimes can't believe how outdated our education system is. Times have changed, but our school system is still the same it was 150 years ago. How long will our children still have to suffer and go into life badly prepared, because those responsible are scared of change?

I think this is just a bunch of bull. Taking the ones who learn different and have special needs out of the equation, we simply have become a society of lazy people who could care less about education. Its all just fun and games, me, me , me. I even saw the original poster make a comment on his daughter being a top athelete, but can't play because she can't pass. Are you freakin kidding me. That back asswords thinking is what's wrong with our country and its lack of education. Why learn it when I can google it. Sounds like a teenager but you are supposed to be the parent. Here lately it seems everyone wants to be famous in order to justify their inability to study and learn something useful, so they can make a living being nothing but them. Just sit around and let the doctors, scientists, and engineers take care of things. Its easier. Doesn't work that way for the large majority. Suck it up, wipe those baby tears, open up a book and join the team. Theres nothing wrong with the education system. If anything, it's the parents at fault, followed by the fed up teachers giving up, which is more than likely a direct result of what the parents have done. This world might solve more problems, if more people took the time to think about others than themselves.

The truth about tech journalism

"In general, the great masses of tech journalists and bloggers are a band of trendy and easily influenced conformists who sometimes care more about staying in tune with the echo chamber than about objective reality." (+Mike Elgan​ - tech journalist)

I couldn't have said it better than Mike Elgan in his piece about what the tech journalist crowd as a whole is getting wrong about Google Glass. That is why Mike is one of my favourite tech writers.

Three lies about Google Glass.

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/gDPFTd )

Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt shocked everyone last week by telling The Wall Street Journal that Google isn't killing Google Glass.

Schmidt's comments were viewed as a surprise and a revelation, even though he was repeating what Google had said previously about its smart glasses project.

People thought Google was sunsetting the Google Glass project because they believed the press.

I love my peers in the tech press -- individually. But as a herd, we can get it wrong.

In general, the great masses of tech journalists and bloggers are a band of trendy and easily influenced conformists who sometimes care more about staying in tune with the echo chamber than about objective reality.

The perfect example for this is how the tech press mob convinced everyone about three Google Glass lies: That Google Glass was an unacceptable invasion of privacy; that it was an overpriced elitist plaything; and that it was a failed and now dead project.

Here's why they were wrong on all counts:

Thank you ever so much!

To all of you, who send me birthday wishes yesterday, a really big thank you. I tried to keep up with it at the beginning, leaving comments to start with, then trying to keep up with the flood by +1ing and even that became impossible in the end. Hundreds of you thought of me yesterday and really made my day.

A heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you!

Story
Tagline
Living on a sub-tropical island, enjoying the scenery.
Introduction
Isn't Google+ just a wonderful thing? I'd have never guessed, when I started here in Summer 2011, that I'd have so much fun. Heck, I became addicted to this place, just like so many of you. So, if you'd like to join me on my trip, here some info about me.

➢ How I roll ...
One of the most important things you should know about how I make most of my G+ experience is, that (imho) interaction is the key. So, if you want to get into my circles, the only way is to interact and you'll soon move up on my Interaction Ladder.

➢ That's what I post about ...
Mainly G+ related stuff  like my Google+ Quick Tips or my How I  posts. I love helping Goobies (G+ newbies), but please don't mistake me for an expert! I'm just a normal guy who likes letting others participate in his learning process. 

I'm also pretty active in the Google+ Formula 1 community. I'm host of The Google+ Paddock Show (you'll find my F1 related posts there, rather than on my private profile), organise regular race hangouts, so F1 buffs don't have to watch the races alone and am moderator of the Official Sauber F1 Team Fan Community.

I also (though not that regularly) post about (future) technologies, Android and mobile topics, some funny stuff and good causes.

I have so called Targeted Circles (Notification Circles) set up for all of the above (and a few other things). They are opt-in only, so if you don't want to miss any posts let me know if you'd like to be in any of them!

➢ Find out more ...
So, there you have it. Quick and painless, which is not usually my way (as you will find out, when you read my posts). Of course there is so much more to me, but to find that out you'll have to ask me. Send me a PM or leave a comment at my posts. I'm immensely looking forward to getting to know you too.
Bragging rights
I taught myself to be a finswimming trainer to train my oldest daughter. She made it to "British Champion" of almost all categories and disciplines in that sport. I speak three languages (German, English and Spanish) in varying degrees of proficiency.

Wenn man gerne mal typisch kanarisch essen gehen möchte ist man hier genau richtig. Hausmannskost, aber nett angerichtet, großzügige Portionen und zu einen fantastischen Preis. Während ich fast immer den Pulpo (Tintenfisch) esse, kann man eigentlich jedes Gericht empfehlen. Ganz lecker auch die Costillas con Piñas (gekochte Rippchen mit Maiskolben). Rustikale Atmosphäre, lecker Essen, guter Preis. Was will man mehr?

This restaurant has it all. Great service and food and a wonderful atmosphere. We like to sit in the patio which is partly roofed, partly open to the skies (wonderful for a warm summer night). The food is excellent, especially the fresh fish.

We found this place via Google Local and though the décor is fantastic, the rest is rather poor, though that is due to the fact that this is not a typical restaurant but a "Guachinche". For those not familiar with Tenerife here a quick explanation what a guachinche is. Guachinches are sort of seasonal restaurants. Once unregulated, they are now bound by certain laws. They should only open for three consecutive months, offer a maximum of three dishes (none of which should be dessert or fruit) and serve only their own wine – they aren’t even allowed to serve beer, coffee or tea but they can sell water and one alcohol free beverage. In return for these limitations guachinches get certain tax reductions. The problem with this particular guachinche is, that it sticks meticulously to the rules. I've never seen a guanchinche do that. Wherever you go in Tenerife you get all kinds of drinks, deserts and food in a guanchinche. Not so here. We were offered salted fish, t-bone steak and "garbanzas" (chick peas) for lunch and either wine, seven-up or water. There was no desert whatsoever. The food was edible, but nothing to write home about. It was nice to go and see the place once (it is really quite beautiful), but we won't return.

The first time we went to eat in this fabulous restaurant was about 15 years ago. We enjoyed it so much we came back the following night. Since then we've never been disappointed once. This is one of the best restaurants in Puerto de la Cruz. Everything is top notch. Excellent food, a fantastic atmosphere in an old Canarian town house and the friendly and professional service make every visit an event to remember. And considering how good it is, the prices are also surprisingly reasonable.

This is one of the more enjoyable experiences in Canarian and Spanish cuisine in Puerto de la Cruz. There are restaurants with better food around and there are cheaper restaurants around, but if you are looking for the perfect value for money you are in the right place. The service is extremely friendly and professional and the food is really good. I especially recommend the fresh fish.

We've walked past that restaurant several times, always wanting to try it out. We finally did and are glad for it. We had fresh fish and it was wonderful, filleted for us by one of the waiters at the table. What I didn't like was the fact that there were many more economic meals advertised in the menu outside the restaurant which were not available once seated. The waiter then pitches you toward the more expensive fresh fish. That is why the service only got a "Good" rating from me though the waiter was friendly enough and very knowledgeable. The restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere though there is not much of a view. Since it is situated in the harbour of Los Cristianos it is a good place to go and eat after/before a stroll along the beach. Harbour-style decoration makes this a nice place to sit down and eat.

This is one of the top restaurants in Tenerife. All their food is to die for, but their speciality is smoked fish. They have their own smokery and really know their stuff. The service is extremely friendly and professional with the owner-chef checking in on his guests personally when time permits. The atmosphere is rustic and cosy inside with large terraces outside set in a park like plot. I like my food and though I'm no expert I know excellence when I see it (erm, taste it). There are few restaurants (especially in Tenerife) as perfect as Casa Juan. A bit on the pricey side, but worth every cent.
