Social Media Now for a Non-sports Person

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. ;)
100% accurate right now haha

Leaked iWatch Plans, or Concept Designs

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  &  Thomas Bogner .

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.

Authorship Photos Gone from Search: What Now?

[Recommended reading] I'm sure this is the most in-depth article to date on the recent Google Authorship display changes in Search, namely the removal of profile images from search. +Mark Traphagen has spared no detail in analyzing & explaining these changes.

There's also a detailed look at some of the myths and/or research that have been done on the big CTR question & whether recent statements can be reconciled with them.

And, as an added bonus has given us some of his personal theories as to why he feels some of these changes may have come about, which also make some interesting reading.

Last & importantly, Why Google Authorship Still Matters. Big thanks to Mark for this comprehensive article.

You're welcome +Mark Traphagen, I thought it was a great in-depth analysis.
And I left a little wiggle room on the conjecture. ;-)

Android Sharing Gets Easier from Drive to Gmail

Well this is neat! Handier sharing feature just announced.

#GmailUpdate #AndroidGmail #DriveUpdate  
Insert from Drive in the Gmail Android app
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 (

What's Changed With Authorship Rich Snippets?

An informative look at what happened to the authorship profile image & why the change was made, as well as how these changes affect authorship. Thanks to +Ray Hiltz for his insights.

The chief point I want to leave readers with is Authorship is very much Alive!
In fact, if you have Authorship successfully set up, your byline will show up in search results.

Enhanced Voice Search on Google Search App

A Voice search demo & it keeps getting better. Can't help but realize though how years from now we'll look back & remember how primitive voice search was. Looking forward to AI.

More On Connecting Your Blogger to Google+

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...

What Every Business Needs to Know About Google+! +martin shervington's Fantastic Presentation

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+.

How Unbreakable Sapphire Crystal Glass is Made

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.

iPhone 6 Unbreakable Sapphire Crystal Display

+Marques Brownlee seriously scored when he got his hands on this piece of "breaking" technology. You gotta see him try to break this glass, then next up I'll be sharing how they make this stuff.

+Boston's Hidden Restaurants what is the problem? Gorilla glass 3 got same specs. It cannot be scratched by keys or knife. Only when you really try(like this display too). Still display will break when it falls from high.

Great place to take the kids, the staff is friendly and helpful. And the kids naturally have a blast looking at all the cool exhibits and animals. Have taken my kids there many times over the years and they never got bored. Thankfully the lions stay in their pens and the snakes don't get out of their boxes. But if you like to touch animals & don't mind smelly goats, the children's petting zoo is the way to go.
