Exciting day for high speed sailing.  Tiny Vestas Sailrocket hits over 71 MPH peak speed and looks to have smashed the record for the fastest sailboat in the 500 meter.  Kiteboarders still faster but perhaps not for long!

so cool... thanks !!! when are you bringing it to Monterey bay?
 
wow im surprised at the way that thing holds together at those speeds - it looks so fragile.
I do love the design of the boat, its genius having the sale one side and weight countering it to get the speed up
 
Carbon Fiber is a wonderfully strong substance
 
Why would you publish a video on Google+ that cannot be viewed in Germany? That sucks.
 
+Johann Blake because he probably had no idea it wasnt available in germany since he doesnt live there? dont be so rude, go search for another version if you must
 
Not available on mobil... I thought there is something like "Mobile first" 
 
+Larry Page You're tripping for posting video not available for mobile viewing on G+..lol. I know today was a major launch day and all with the N7,N4,and Nexus 10, but come on.... :-) 
 
It all happened so fast.
 
#nexus4  would you care to please express couple of thoughts on today's nexus 4 debacle?  Early first day playstore nexus buyers are big-time Mavens.  thanks sincerely!
 
I wouldn't even be able to step foot near one of those things for fear of injury.

Awesome high speed sailing. Personally, I have been on a motorized speed boat and I got to tell u that the feeling of going 90 MPH over water is just amazing. The water looks like a sheet of ice, the extreme wind in your face, and the exhilaration feelings are all but once in a life time. I lived to tell about it and I can relate to this experience. Congrats!

Marvelous.  I can see this becoming a popular racing sailboat. Yow.
 
As a fan of big catamarans, I'd like to see this technology added to more symmetrical traditional boats.
 
Awesome! I've only been sailing a few times.
 
Muy interesante este trineo del mar navega como las revelas como diria un vecino mio que era marino, interesante seria conocer mas detalles como es el timon navega contra el viento, como se sustenta la vela sin volcar la embarcación, cual es su peso, puede llevar mas tripulantes, de todas maneras es una maquina admirable y muy bien diseñada.-

Hi Larry, the boat might be faster soon but compare the money spend on a kite and board to the cost of the sailrocket!! Same fun on almost no expense....
 
Hey Damian maybe it's good you couldn't place an order... Some people in UK who did got same day, overnight shipping while others who received an order confirmation were told the next day "sorry but they sold out, try again later". Myself in the US waited diligently for the order page to come live and put in one of the first orders for the Nexus 10 however I'm still waiting on it to be shipped while others who ordered well after me got their order shipped yesterday. So we all paid a fairly high shipping cost to get anywhere from one night process and ship (worth the price) to what amounts to a one week shipment (no where near to being a good value). Google should not sell product when they can't figure out how to be consistent. Has me rethinking my purchase of Google products in the future.

Hey Larry, speaking of great things we need Google fiber in Albuquerque
 
So while you're off sailing, your company has completely screwed up the launch of the nexus 4.

Let's review:

1. No pre-orders. Hey, we'll make a big splash on launch!

2. No announced time when the device would go on sale. The longer we make them wait, the more time they spend wanting it, right?

3. Plus, since we don't want to do pre-orders, it can help prevent a huge spike to the server load at that time. Two birds, one stone!

4. Yay, it went on sale! Wait, the website is crashing! Ooops. Maybe we should have built a system that could handle the hype we generated. If only we knew of a company know for building systems that can handle enormous amounts of data and traffic...

5. Hm, it seems we may have underestimated the demand. If only Apple didn't patent pre-ordering.

6. Wait, it looks like our poor preperation might have caused some people to mistakenly place more than one order! Damn their fingers clicking faster than our JavaScript!

7. Aargh! And we forgot to limit customers from ordering more than one of each device! Goddammit I knew I forgot something before we started sailing!

8. Fortunately since we're Google we know how to make a great back end and there won't be any screw ups in our inventory, right guys? ...guys? Sergey?

9. With this many screwups we're bound to have a lot of unhappy customers. We should just tell EVERYBODY that we're taking three weeks to figure this out. Plus, we have sailing to do!

10. Note to self: I should probably look into hiring a computer guy, he could probably have figured out how to search the database and filter out the customers without multiple devices or redundant orders so we can ship the rest.

Way to go Larry, you guys have managed to alienate your most ardent users in an extraordinarily inept fashion.
 
How about this one... The we'll confirm your order and charge your card the $500 but when you want to cancel because we can't tell you when or if you order will ship we won't let you cancel until you get a tracking number which we can't tell you you'll get... What a crock of crap. Is this a big boy company or a bunch of fools. No I'm the fool for letting you get your grubby hands on my $500 in the first place. I'm going to deny the charge with my bank tomorrow for fraud as that what this is....

For the fourth of fifth time, my Toxic Reverend profile is being reviewed again to see if it complies with the Google+ Names Policy. Reviews are usually completed within a few days. In the meantime, I have full access to Google+ and all other Google services. My question is how many times do I have to endure this ? Being that I am legally blind, I am getting rather fed up with this and would think that the records of my prior responses and subsequent approvals of being able to use "Toxic Reverend" because I am known by far more people by that name than my ral name  would have been enough to prevent this repeat, if they had been checked.  This is now bordering on harassment, +Larry Page 
I do find it a bit more than coincidental that this re-evaluation comes so soon after my posting a comment at your profile, as comments # 114 and # 116 at

I'M SICK AND TIRED OF THE GOOGLE AUTO DIALER CALLING MY OFFICE 5-6 TIMES A DAY.  I DONT HAVE A GOOGLE LISTING, DONT WANT A GOOGLE LISTING.  I AM ABOUT TO OFFLOAD GOOGLE CHROME COMPLETELY !!  DONE WITH YOUR INCONSIDERATE AUTO DIALING.  IF YOU REALLY WANTED BUSINESS, YOU MIGHT PUT A REAL PERSON ON THE PHONE!
 
haha. how can i assist you? ill help for free like on-line, ok? because its good and just and the right thing to do as you really seem to be experiencing serious problems with your phone. i feel sorry about that. :( google though not a bad company id say...

i tried to watch this clip but it says not available in my country... hm actually im not interested in sailng anyway. vestas - wernt they only producing wind-turbines?
 
that's lame one of the founders of Google to set the video to not to be seen on mobile.. lame and incoerent 
 
Hi Larry,

I have been working on "what should be next in internet technology" and I have a battery of ideas that can further improve the search experience and it could help Google increase its revenue continuously by at least 50% annually for the next 15 years. All I need is 10 minutes meeting where I could present my idea. 

Looking forward to meet you!!!

Thanks,
Ramanand Dang
 
As the sun feasts on the oceans for hydrogens, the percentage of this gas is very pretty small when compared with oxygen. When water is split, the sun enriches itself and expands and the oxygen falls back to earth and is utilized by earth's life; undecomposed water condenses and falls as rains. Soon the oceans will dry up. Where are sailors to sail?!
 
I want.
Put AdMob ads in the APP, and divide the revenue with developers.
Like this, put AdMob ads on android os, is to divide the revenue with users.
However, you will need to establish a new payment method, in order to prevent abuse.
For example, payments will be split equally to all users.
 
no communism but effective money spending to things that are important. social security is. renewables are.
people with good ideas will always earn more... its ok, but they have to take care about weaker members of society!

its like your life. you dont buy stuff you dont need.

problem with communism was it was not effective because of centralist planning of economy.
 
Off topic but maybe add in a suggestions account to make it easier for people to add suggestions. Like I still hate that the category list for games in play is packing. Please add a strategy and simulation category.
 
what do you mean simulation categorey
 
I mean create a have category called simulation and strategy. Simulation
games are any games with simulation like the tycoon games or even airplane
flight simulation. I think it's pretty self explanatory.
 
yeah simulation and strategy
but divide them
 
Divide them or at least group them together like brain & puzzle. But seriously the categories don't even exist which is kind of pathetic given that google probable has a team overlooking this issue. All the main categories of games should be listed to help potential buyers find the kind of games they are interested in as well as help expose current and potential developers products in  a cleaner and more intuitive way. It's a shame I have to use app review websites to find strategy games for android instead of being able to do that through the store.
 
Larry Page, how fast is google branching out their self driving car technology to all the different car companies so they can build a sleeker design?  Get with the program.
 
hi folks,

i wonder if a design like this could be used to develop fuel efficient cargo boats - they might useful for shorter haul work, maybe not cross -ocean tasks.   think about it!

have fun,   biz
 
hm.. i dont think they can change from fuel.
but they have some kind of sailor ?! that is set up in front of the cargo ship, it saves some percentaeg.. thats true
 
yes, perhaps a hybrid design using wind and a fuel powered engine could have synergies to lower overall fuel consumption.  the cargo boat doesnt have to be fast, but if the foil design leverages power available from the wind, then there might an useful application to a problem domain for cargo shipping....

have fun,    biz
 
yes no tv. no radio. no earphones. just me and my laptop

Dear Larry,

I am writing to express my interest to get an opportunity at GOOGLE.
Please let me know when are you available to discuss my motivation and interest to contribute with the important work of GOOGLE Inc.

Thanks for your attention and time.

It needs a centrifuge or wings and flaps for stabilization. They could also use special hydrofoils to maintain control. Check out the original design on my profile if you feel like it
 
Saw this awesome boat in this month's Southern Boating.   Did you ever think that spinning Google+ off as a publicly traded company with  a new name and a new image might be the resolution to trumping facebook.  A new name--try a contest with video submissions on why you think your name is best.  Toronto did this to come up with "Raptors" for it;s basketball team. Winner gets a chunk of shares in the new spun off CO.  Your public buys shares  in the new named social network company.  Company pays a Q'ly dividend, but not in cash.  Dividend is paid in some sort of social media capital.  Think about it this way.... If facebook were yoursm, what would you do next to cannibalize it?  ...Love that boat!
 
In my view the way to beat Facebook and Twitter is to give people hope for a better way of living. Bullied children in schools is not dealt with. Amanda Todd would be alive today if she was able to be Homeschooled and her mother could earn from the Internet with support! Has Facebook banned the man that posted underage pictures of her? Has Facebook banned all the bullying children that destroyed her life? Did Facebook care? I dumped Facebook last year as I want to be part of a real network of people that care about others and speak out for change!
