That seems to be the piece I've been missing on Google+ from the beginning.
 
Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.

Watch Elon Musk announce Tesla Energy in the best tech keynote I've ever seen

This presentation is really well worth watching.... hard hitting and down to earth. Stating the environmental problems with the challenges around generation of electricity, and a potentially simple solution. Essentially we are geared up to generate huge amounts of power for peak periods (apart from SA's +Eskom Official) and much of the rest of the time this level of generation is not needed. After dark most solar generation units are not generating power (newer one's that superheat steam are in fact generating power for quite a while after dark).

His solution is quite simple really and it all dovetails together. Use solar and other renewable energy sources to generate power (using existing rooftops so that open land need not be used), use decentralised batteries to store the power, and use these batteries during peak times or after dark.  Yes not everyone will have batteries so we will not eliminate power generation required after hours overnight, but it can be much reduced and hydropower and other forms of generation could handle this.

Yes Musk is in the business of solar, batteries, electric cars but he is helping solving energy challenges we face today.  All the technology we have at Google, Microsoft, Apple, Dell, HP, etc requires more and more electricity to operate. Elon Musk is doing something now that is viable to keep this all operating in the future.  Admittedly Google is a big user of its own green energy and has invested in utility renewable energy generation too, but Tesla Energy is really going the extra mile in making it domestically available and a commercial enterprise.

The real punchline for me was his demonstration that the whole building and the keynote was actually running off stored energy from the sun, and no grid power was being used!

And of course he also stated that they will be open sourcing their patents around the technology...

I've watched a lot of handsomely paid CEOs get on stages for keynote presentations over the past decade, and none were as good as the one I saw Elon Musk give Thursday night in California as he...

Wieso Steuermillionem für Fleischwerbung?

Fleischkonsum ist ethisch, ökologisch usw. relevant.

Erhlich gesagt hatte ich immer vermutet da sei Sekundenkleber im Spiel. Ist es nicht schön überrascht zu werden? Zu erkennen, dass manches doch wunderbar ausgewogen ist? In diesem Sinne, auf ein ausgewogenes 2015.

Bei einer Auslastung vom 90% hast du 10 Leute in der Warteschlange. Plane mit 85% Auslastung, dann hat man im Schnitt 4 Wartepositionen.

Mehrheit gegen Dummheit bilden! "Gut - also jetzt über ‪Schwarmdummheit‬". Meine Rede darüber ist jetzt in drei oder vier Tagen schon von mehr als 10.000 Leuten angeschaut worden. Es müssen aber viel mehr werden, weil man sonst nie eine Mehrheit in Meetings gegen die Dummheit bekommt!

Sometimes unconventional ways lead to more happiness instead of conventional struggle to achieve conventional goals.

Be happy!

This is another great example of how twisted things have become. Why is housing so expensive? It is a need, not a luxury. And sure some places are more convenient in terms of placement or rooms and finish/options, but I come on!

I am sure that +K10 Slevin​ has something to say about it as well.

This is truly amazing. Ubuntu Convergence now a reality: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3PUYoa1c9M LibreOffice on a Nexus 4 with HDMI on an Big Screen. Auto-Switch between Tablet and Windowed Mode when connecting a Bluetooth Mouse. #innovation #ubuntuphone
 
Making videos is hard.  It's taken a lot longer than I hoped to get this finished.  Anyway, here you go - Convergence In Action.

All the Unity & Mir code will land in the trunk once the teams are happy with the quality.  Some of it is already there.  We're still not quite satisfied with Xmir, there is more work to do around the input stack, so please bear with us while we get the bugs ironed out and then we'll get the alpha version ready for you to try on your own devices.

If you can get to MWC, come and see us in hall 8, 1F41.  If you can't, that's why we made you this video, and I'll capture a few moments from next week and share them here.

Filmed in Potatovision.

(Huge thanks to everyone who helped get us this far.  Thanks for staying up late, getting up early and working through lunchtimes to fix bugs, add features and get the demo's working.  It is enormously appreciated.  Go Ubuntu!)

Toyota following Tesla is releasing patents for new technology to foster innovation in the whole market.
Great news!
 
Krasser Schritt!
Just last year, Tesla Motors, the California-based electric car company, left many with their jaws hanging open after CEO Elon Musk announced that it would release its patents to the world in a bid to boost the market for electric cars.

This man has guts! 

Francis told cardinals, bishops and priests on Monday the Vatican was riven with "existential schizophrenia", "social exhibitionism", "spiritual Alzheimer's" and a lust for power, all of which made for an "orchestra that plays out of tune".

"The Curia is called on to always improve itself and grow in  communion, holiness and knowledge to fulfil its mission,'' Francis said.
Catholic leader tells stony-faced cardinals, bishops and priests of church's '15 ailments' in unusual address.
