Thanks to +Melissa Daniels for sharing Google same-day delivery early signup form. Check it out. You may still be able to get in. 
 
Do you live in the San Francisco Bay Area?

If so, then listen up! I have a special treat just for you! (If you're not in the SF Bay Area, I'm sorry!) 

If you want to try free same-day delivery for 6 months, use my priority code F&F2 to get an early invite to Google Shopping Express http://goo.gl/PFc4J 

I've been using it for quite some time (used it again today!)-- it's great for on-the-fly purchases, or when you really don't want to stop at the store on your way home. Cut out the hassle and ship straight to your door!

This does blow.

Thomas Hawk finds himself (yet again) in Flickr's crosshairs.

I won't be surprised if Google+ gains genuine adoption now that its features rock.
 
As it's about to turn two next month, +Google+ seems readily for its second act, a big push of features it says will be "game changing" to boost adoption. It'll need that given how many still fail to recognize the value the service offers. My look at some of the recent changes as well as the "What Is Google+?" and "Why Should I Be On Google+" challenges the service still faces.

Using G+ to rank higher on Google is, obviously, a touchy subject for Google.

She was great in the office. Writes funny too.

+Thomas Hawk: why do you want a +flickr pro account when you have all the high quality photos you want on +Google+?

How much do you pay G+ for your photos (looks like you have more than a terabyte)?

+Robert Scoble's really nailing these G+ gifs with his +Google Glass. Wonder how it's done. 
 
Fun evening tonight. Went to Keens Steakhouse in New York, met up with +Liva Judic for drinks, then +Dave Winer for dinner, along with my son, +Patrick Scoble. After seeing 'The Iceman,' With Michael Shannon as Richard Kuklinski, http://4d2.r2.ly/ (good movie, recommended) moved onto Times Square, which got its name for the New York Times, here's its latest headquarters. More photos from New York soon. 

We got stopped by a few people, including the police. Why? Everyone wants to talk about Google Glass. Me? I just love these new animated GIFs that Google+ makes. Don't worry, I'll tire of them soon.

By the way, did you watch any of my SRI videos? That's something you can't do at the New York Times: http://thenextweb.com/insider/2013/05/19/what-the-future-looks-like-inside-the-lab-that-brought-us-siri-the-mouse-and-the-internet-itself/

Just shoot a bunch of photos of one thing, upload them, and Google+ does the rest of the work automatically.

I love +Flipboard's editor and wish it was possible to have my curation public on the web. But, I guess that'd mean you can access their content without using their apps. cc: +Josh Quittner, Mike McCue    
 
Make your magazines even better this weekend. Here's how Flipboard Editor makes magazine curation easier than ever.

"hehe - it's fun to do photos like this, but man, do you ever look like an idiot." Therein lies +Google Glass's biggest challenge with adoption. 
 
Here getting a donut at the Google campus, using Glass to get this photo with speech... hehe - it's fun to do photos like this, but man, do you ever look like an idiot.  To see how embarassing it actually looked, see the stream of +Curtis Simmons ! ! :)  haha... I look like I really worship donuts, and maybe, maybe I do.

Is it cheating if you submit picture of a fennec fox for your photo contest entry! :)
