Introducing Auto Awesome Photobombs with +David Hasselhoff 

Google+ Auto Awesome is all about fun surprises that bring your photos to life. Capture a quick burst of photos, and you’ll get an animated GIF. Take a series of portraits, and you’ll get a photobooth-style collage.

Today we’re announcing Auto Awesome Photobombs. What’s more fun than Benedict Cumberbatch photobombing U2 at The Oscars ( Or Michelle Obama at The White House ( A good photobomb can turn an ordinary photo into something special and put a smile on your face. Now with Auto Awesome, celebrities can make a spontaneous appearance in your pictures!

We’re starting with +David Hasselhoff naturally, everyone’s favorite crime-fighting rockstar lifeguard.

To get your own photobomb, upload a new self portrait or group photo with friends, and leave a little room for The Hoff. He might just make a surprise appearance. :-)

P.S. You can also mention +David Hasselhoff in your public posts and comments. If you’re lucky he’ll add some awesome to the conversation.

+Heather Hagge and I had to drive by the Plummer Building at Mayo Clinic in Rochester last night to see the "tree" they lit up in the windows of the building for Christmas.

The past couple of days there sure have been some really large and noticeable sun dogs from Rochester!

And that Google+ Auto-Awesome adding the snow is a lovely touch.

Straight from shorts and t-shirt weather to jeans and sweatshirt weather. What happened to jeans and t-shirt weather?

Great excuse:

"The outage is the result of a network issue."

And the network issue, well, was the result of an outage.

It is sad to see Frame Rate leave +TWiT, however I am excited to see it live on independently by the show's hosts, +Brian Brushwood and +Tom Merritt.

At first I thought it was a bummer when a (good) show stops airing on TWiT. However, the nature of +TWiT in the first place was to be independent of larger networks and be a pioneer in New Media. Doing so has had some really good consequences and inspired many people to do the same!

So, go support #Cordkillers on +Patreon!

Here are some photos I took with +Heather Hagge at the Holidazzle Parade December 14th, 2013. This is the last year of the parade, so we braved the cold weather to see it!

The pics are from my phone and it was dark, so the pictures aren't the greatest quality and my experimenting with Google+'s auto-awesome feature animating some pics didn't work as well as I would have hoped. However, I was pleasantly surprised as I forgot Google+ did add some sparkles to a couple of the photos.

Nothing like adding 50GB of free storage for 2 years to my Google account! Fall of 2015 will be a realization moment - will I need this much online storage by that point and then need to pay for it?

I really like it. I hardly ever use the power button anymore with the active notifications. It wakes up to tell me things when I pick it up - pretty handy! The camera could be better, but its not too shabby.
