It took a while to happen, but I had a feeling I'd eventually see this! Yes, an Apple Watch with a huge bumper case!
So much for all the effort that goes into form, style & beauty!
I can respect the fact that they want to protect their (significant) investment, but wow, is it a sight!

I can't think of any other watch that has a bumper as an accessory! ;p

More +Google+ wonkiness...
Sometimes View Activity is there (so you can see who +1'd your post), and other times, not so much.
And if it doesn't show in the Preview, it also doesn't show in the post either.  Odd.

Spot-on, +Jeff Jarvis​ !
 
You’d expect me to say this but Google’s transformation into Alphabet is a brilliant move that enables +Larry Page, +Sergey Brin and their company to escape the bonds of their past — They’re just a search company. Why are they working on self-driving cars and magical contact lenses and high-flying balloons? — and go where no one has thought they would go before.

To Wall Street and countless bleating analysts — not to mention its competitors and plenty of government regulators — Google was a search company, though long ago it became so much more. I don’t just mean that it also made a great browser, the best maps, killer email, an open phone operating system and some of the best phones, and a new operating system (and the damned fine computer I’m writing on right now) — and that it acquired the biggest video company and the best traffic data company. I don’t just mean that Google has for a long time really been the powerhouse advertising company.

No, Google long ago became a personal services company, the post-mass-market company that treats every user as a customer it knows individually. That is the heart of Google. When they say they “focus on the user and all else will follow,” they mean it.

But Google was also a technology company, working on projects that didn’t fit with that mission.

So this move lets Page and Brin move up to the strategic stratosphere where they are most comfortable. It lets them recognize the tremendous job +Sundar Pichai has been doing running the company that is now “just” Google. It lets them invest in new experiments and new lines of business — cars, medical technology, automated homes, and energy so far, and then WTF they can imagine and whatever problems they yearn to solve. It lets them tell Wall Street not to freak at a blip in the ad market — though, of course, the vast majority of the parent company’s revenue will still come from Google’s advertising business.

A journalist asked me a few minutes ago whether there was any risk to the change. I couldn’t think of any then. I suppose one risk is that this will only freak out especially European media and regulatory technopanickers, who will now go on a rampage warning that — SEE! — Google does want to rule the world. But what the hell. They were going to do that anyway.

A few weeks ago at Google I/O, I had the privilege of meeting Page. To introduce myself, I said that I wrote a book called What Would Google Do?. “Oh, I remember,” he said with impish grin and then he asked: “What would Google do? I want to know.”

See, I don’t think even Larry Page knows what Google — er, Alphabet — will do. He is now setting himself up for discoveries, surprises, exploration, experimentation, and a magnificently uncertain future. Who wants a certain future? That’d be so damned boring. So horribly conventional.

Disclosure: I own Google — er, Alphabet — stock. And I now lust after Alphabet swag.

Was excited about the new Hangouts update - - till I learned that Group messages still don't work with my Google Voice number...

Still coming in as separate messages from each person...

CORRECTION
Thanks to +Alex Chapin for pointing out this post, which clarifies, and answers my concern.  It's simply not rolled out yet!  Whooops!

Finally!  Finally!  Hangouts has Group SMS!  

No more individual message chaos when someone includes me in a group message!

It's the little things that make my day!  :)

+Jonathan Brown so far, it appears I can only receive them.  If I try to create a new Group Message, it wants to send it as a Hangouts message from my Gmail...
I too, mostly just receive them, but it would be nice to be able to send a Group message to all my family, when needed...!

For months, I've had my Zenwatch synched to UP by +Jawbone​ but just learned that the sync stopped about 2 wks ago.
The UP by Jawbone app doesn't find the watch & just takes me through an endless loop.
I factory reset my watch & re-paired with my Moto X. Still nothing.
I think the watch is jacked, because the UP app on the watch keeps going from reporting steps for today, to reporting zero steps...
I don't want to wear yet another thing on my wrist or elsewhere on me, but looks like I'm gonna have to, because this crap is for the birds...

If you've been to any kind of tech event/meeting/etc in the Louisville area,then you've probably met or seen +Steve Goldberg​ before.
He was called home today - I believe it was heart failure. Steve was an odd duck, but a gentle soul. And smart?! Wow.
I'm glad I knew him, and glad I saw him recently at a meetup. Rest in peace, Steve...

What?!!!  Really? We called him "Dancing Steve".  He used to go to Red Lounge and other places where we used to go years back and dance without a care in the world, totally happy.  We saw him last at the Robert Scoble event. He was a very jovial guy. Always positive. Sad

Absolutely LOVE going to El Caporal! Excellent food, reasonably priced. I indicated a $12/person cost, though my wife & I usually extend beyond that due to drinks! I'm also basing that on dinner pricing - lunch specials are an even better deal! We always leave pleasantly stuffed, with doggie bags of leftovers - YUM! Enough to have El Caporal for lunch the next day! Entire staff is very friendly. Highly recommend eating here if you're in the area!

I've rented items from Doo Wop for over 20 years, and it has always been satisfactory. Not sure why so many (anonymous) people give such poor reviews. I always get what I need for a decent price, and my rentals have varied from full sound systems to guitars to recording equipment. Some of the workers can be a bit flaky, but hey, it's a music store in the Highlands!
