it appears that if i change the "to" settings for a g+ post when sharing a thing from the ios youtube app, said change will propagate to other devices and browsers.

i don't like that.

one of the more subtle but useful implications of star trek technology would be the ability to store everything you own as a transporter buffer pattern. putting a thing away would just be a matter of stuffing it into a matter disassembler. when you need a thing, you just key it in and open a cupboard.

I really should start public-sharing things more often.
 
IF Apple announces the new iPad today... I'll give one away!

UPDATE! IT was announced! I'll order it today, they ship on March 16th so when I get it, I'll send it to the winner!

Here is how to enter:

1) You gotta have me in a Circle. Got that? Cool.
2) Publicly share this post!

That's it! So, if you want to be one of the first people to get your hands on an iPad3 here is your first chance!!! I'll announce the winner one week from today.

Oh, and this is only for US and Canada folks. Sorry! I love you guys across the pond but shipping is very, very difficult and expensive for these types of things.

PS - For those of you who are skeptical, YES - I really am giving away the new iPad. And +Cali Lewis and I give away stuff all the time. Most of the time we get things donated because of our show (GeekBeat.TV), but in this case I'm paying for the new iPad out of my own pocket and one of you lucky souls will win it. Enjoy!

PS Again! - I got the order in! Here's a sneak peak: https://plus.google.com/109938202835872364257/posts/P9RQ38Li5aB
