Showing off doesn't always pay off
Saw this in a YouTube video posted +Brian Hoover​ and thought I make a quick GIF out of it.

There were more funny taunts gone wrong in that video, but this one was my favourite. You can find Brian's original post here:

Little treasures

I had a few minutes before work and by coincidence I passed by one of our local beaches. I've been that way thousands of times before but today I looked out of the car window and saw this spot that had completely escaped my attention before.

The are many benches on that stretch of the beach but due to the wisdom of the gardeners the view from every single one of them down to the beach is obscured by bushes, trees and other, undoubtedly beautiful, vegetation. This is the only one that offers this magnificent view in between two trees. A little treasure that I had the good fortune to be able to enjoy for a couple of minutes. A good start to the day.

Android 5.1.1 on the Moto 360
Youtube vid by Phandroid about what is different in the newest version of Android Wear.

#AndroidWear 5.1.1 has finally come to the #Moto360. As always the rollout is gradual, so if you haven't got it yet, don't fret. It'll get to your watch too in the next few days.

I have mine already and am quite happy with it. Wanted to write a post about the changes, but this video explains it quite well, so why go through the trouble, right?

What do you like best of all the changes Android Wear 5.1.1 brings? Is there stuff you'd have liked to see in this update? How do you like it in general?

May the Plus be with you,

A little fun, since we now know that Saturn's largest moon Titan has more oil than Earth :) http://www.space.com/4968-titan-oil-earth.html

"Saturn's smoggy moon Titan has hundreds of times more natural gas and other liquid hydrocarbons than all the known oil and natural gas reserves on Earth, scientists said today."

My watch face for today: Star Trek
With a 24mm watch strap on a 22mm watch.

Did something a bit different today. I saw a cheap €8,- watch yesterday, but I liked the canvas watch strap, so I bought it, binned the watch and cut corners out of the 24mm strap to make it for my 22mm +SteelConnect​ adapters. It hasn't turned out perfect (I'm still practising), but the idea is good. Paired with my Star Trek watch face it makes a nice combination.

May the Plus be with you,

Larsson & Jennings - black
This is a simple and elegant watch face, but for all its simplicity it was still a bit of a challenge.

With dark and pretty much uni-coloured watch faces like this I find that they're lacking in depth on 2D smart watch screens. So I don't use a photoshopped background, but completely recreate it with vector graphics in Inkscape and add lighting and shadows where I find it necessary to create a stronger 3D effect. The hands have dynamic shadows and lighting, meaning the shadows and darker sides of the watch hands will always face away from the virtual light source (which in this case comes from the top left).

Enjoy, and may the Plus be with you,
+Jens Graikowski

Very simple and elegant watch face. Since it is rather dark, dynamic shadows and lighting has been heavily used to create a 3D effect.

And here the yellow gold version of the watch I posted yesterday.

Again with dynamic shadows and lighting for the hands. Goes great with any brown watch strap, especially crocodile.

I wanted to make the yellow gold version of this watch, but noticed that I have almost no watch faces for my new black crocodile leather watch strap, so I decided to make this white gold version first. It's the first time I'm using dynamic lighting for the hands, thanks to code provided by +Javs Mb​.

The yellow gold version will follow soon, but I hope some of you might like this one too.

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.
