I'm not usually into watching sports (I'd rather do them than watch 'em), but I have shared a few of the hilarious #WorldCup memes. So to provide balance to the force, this share is for my friends on the other side. ;)
There seems to be a lot of both going around, but most of what you'll see claiming to be the new iWatch are the following popularly shared concept designs, by Todd Hamilton goo.gl/Du6QpJ & Thomas Bogner goo.gl/SMPFrK .
So do you think either of these are gonna catch on, or that the rumored iWatch is going to be very much like any of these?
Whatever happens Apple's certainly not sparing for talent, it seems they've just poached some more engineers to work on the iWatch from Nike's Fuelband team. goo.gl/c19N3U

It’s now easier for you to share files with friends and family—simply insert Google Drive files directly into your Gmail messages on your Android phone or tablet. If the file isn’t shared with the person you’re sending it to, you’ll get the option to change your sharing settings before you send it. And you’ll notice improved autocomplete suggestions for your contacts when composing messages—just start typing in the To, Cc or Bcc field to see better suggestions, faster.
These features will be rolling out over the next few days. If you aren’t already using the Gmail Android app, download the latest version from the Play store (https://goo.gl/3vcM7k).

Looks like this one coming up will be an interesting one to watch. After seeing a lot of G+ influencers talk about this, I'm curious about what particular angles they'll highlight on this.
Google+ and Blogger go together like peas & carrots, most of the integration has already been done for you. The other day I suggested using Blogger with your Google+, but importantly I feel you should also set it up with your own domain name.
I was asked a number of questions on working with these together, so let me refer you to the informative & official Google page that explains a lot more on this topic...

Martin was recently invited to give a presentation for a group of Toyota dealerships on using Google+ for business. This presentation looks like it was well prepared for & I think it's also a good example of how one can give presentations to your local businesses about Google+.
Yeah so, I thought I'd have some fun with the title, can you think of a better title mashup? Looks like a good project too by the way & if you have a worthy charity, you can actually apply for the Google Glass project.

A fascinating look at how the next generation of mobile phone display technology. You saw my earlier post about the leaked iPhone 6 Sapphire Crystal display & here's a tour of the factories where they actually make this stuff.
At $30 a screen this stuff is not cheap, but prices are coming down to $15 shortly & soon enough they'll be on every modern mobile you can buy.
