Lots of overly obvious points. Who thought this was a good idea in the first place.

Suddenly making really good progress through the cryptonomicon. At this rate I might actually finish someday. Good book though. Would recommend.

I keep trying to use google+ but always give up. Here are my top wishes that would keep me around.

Views for "grouped" circles (multi-reddit style). If I have a friends circle and a family circle, I'd like to be able to see those at the same time without having to put my grandma in my friends circle or the guy who lives down the street in my family circle. I'd also not want to manually put every person in those 2 circles into a "People I know" circle. Following the programming concept of DRY (dont repeat yourself), if EVERY person in Family and Friends should be in People I know, I shouldnt have to include them in both... I might miss someone. The main driving factor is that I have a lot of news/blog sites that I have circled that I don't want to have pushing my "real people" off my feed. Sometimes I just want to watch people I know.

Which brings us to item 2, columns - tweetdeck style. Combined with multi-circles i could have a "people I know" column (family groups, friends group), a news/blog column (lifehacker, gizmodo) and a tech/nerd column (cyanogenmod, natural selection 2)... heck even a realtime search column (twitter style) to watch for posts about a topic all on the screen at once. and lifehacker can post 50 articles a day and I wont have to go diving to find that post from my brother. Also makes leaving google+ open on a second monitor just to watch stuff scroll by a lot more interesting for me

And my final request - where the hell is sort options. Facebook has "top stories" and "most recent" ... i HATE "smart sort" stuff. It's useful if i havent opened facebook in a month and need to see top news. but I check it every 30 minutes, i dont need to see neat new stuff from yesterday, i need to see the most recent 30 minutes of stuff. I can't find anywhere to change the sort options and disable the smart sort. Maybe it exists but I can't find it.

If we had those 3 things, I'd actually be really stoked about this and would even work to convince friends to convert. They all have android phones anyway. But until then, it's a pain for me to use.

I wish I had that option.
 
I had small salad and chicken... But the lunch choices at Google never fail to amaze me.
