This is precisely why we didn't use a dongle for +PreSonus Audio Electronics Studio One. A decision that I am very happy we made.
 
that moment your Steinberg eLicenser stops working.. let the real nightmare begin! Read more about the "fantastic" support by Steinberg, Vengeance Audio and ReFX!!!! #broken   #elicenser   #steinberg   #support   #hardwareissue   #license   #loyalcustomer   #brokenelicenser   #refx   #vengeance   #nexus  
eLicenser by Steinberg broken - so let the nightmare begin! Vengeance refusing to send new licenses and much more not so funny answers from support

Google+ is Google No More

When Google+ launched over 4-years ago, the idea was to both promote a new social network, and create a unified account system and social spine for all things Google.

As this latest blog post from +Bradley Horowitz admits, they didn't get it all right.  Google+ the identity layer was forced on people who had no desire to use the network; integrations with the network became nearly ubiquitous across properties; the 'social spine' became a privacy nightmare for some people; and the effort became at times so obnoxiously in-your-face it soured people on both the social network and the larger ecosystem.

In short, Google+ was the branding equivalent of New Coke.  Much like the Coca Cola Corporation, Google is recognizing this, as recent deintegrations (removals of Google+ features from other Google properties) have shown.

Now the final, major step will be made: instead of Google+ accounts, Google will now simply use Google accounts, which by themselves aren't tied into social anything, private and unsearchable.

So is Google+ dead?  No, fortunately not.  While the Google brand reverts to Google Classic, Google+ will finally receive the type of focus many of us suggested it always needed: no longer a would-be "Facebook killer", the network can now presumably focus on what its most passionate users agree it is good for: discovering great content and accounts to follow (i.e. Twitter without the obnoxious limitations and fewer bots).

Google+ (the social layer) is Dead.  Long live Google+ (the network)!

In my exhaustive research for today's comic, I read that John Steinbeck often signed his books with a drawing of the Pigasus, a mythical flying pig. He also included the Latin motto "Ad astra per alas porci": "To the stars o...
