Is there any way to link multiple google+ accounts yet? Due to various businesses I work with I have multiple google app accounts, plus my Gmail account all with Google+. would be awesome if we could choose a single g+ account that can handle all. I know this feature has been requested for years but just wondering if there is any progress on this? Thanks!

I requested it on behalf of other users who regularly switch between apps accounts.

It may be possible in the future, but as things currently stand there is no changing it. You'll need to find a workaround that works for you.

The Office Workout
Just because you’re at the office does not mean you can’t workout. This is the kind of exercise routine that can be carried out anywhere you have a little space and some privacy.

This is an interesting thought - but as someone who has had a computer in front of him since he was 8 (Commodore 64) - I feel a bit opposite of this. Ironically I work in the tech industry and could be part of my thoughts on this. Don't get me wrong, I would never ditch my smartphone, and all the great tech I have. But I also do think, that we're creating a society that doesn't communicate face to face. I do believe we need to re-learn how to create personal, real, close, and PHYSICAL relationships. Sitting on facebook and google+ all day doesn't create a closeness that you can/will develop with close REAL friends who you know deeply and they you. What are your thoughts?
 
Why I'm not unplugging.

Today at sunset, we're all supposed to unplug for 24 hours. It's called the National Day of Unplugging. 

Screw that. I'm not unplugging jack squat. Here's why. 

Organizers say the purpose of the Unplugging is to "start living a different life: connect with the people in your street, neighborhood and city, have an uninterrupted meal or read a book to your child." 

I don't want to live "a different life." I was born in the 1960s. I spent most of my life "unplugged." Yet I'm young enough to understand what being "unplugged" means. It means ignorance, wasted time, wasted opportunities and being a prisoner to time and place.

I've travelled all over the world, and have seen how the majority of people on this planet live -- unplugged. If only they could afford Internet connectivity, their lives would be transformed for the better. 

I'm supposed to "connect with the people in my street." But why are people in my street better than the people in my circles? They're not. What kind of narcissist believes that people physically near me deserve special attention?

The unplug movement assumes we're all prisoners of connectivity. I don't know about you, but being connected has set me free. It lets me go anywhere, work anywhere, live anywhere, and yet stay in constant contact with my sons and my family and friends. 

By all means, unplug if you want to. As for me, I'll unplug when I'm dead.

What I really want is more connectivity. A LOT more. I want faster speeds, and cheaper satellite data and longer battery life. I want to be able to connect from the middle of the Sahara and the top of Kilimanjaro and the middle of the ocean. I want to be "plugged" 24/7 and 365 days a year. 

What about you?

I totally agree. I've got a friend who took his daughter and her friends somewhere for their birthday party. You'd expect a van full of girls would be noisy - but instead, every single one of them were texting to friends not there. So instead of enjoying each others company of who's right there in front of them they were opting to talk with people somewhere else. Sad.

Disconnecting can be an amazing thing, and done far more often than most do. When I take my boys camping I am so excited because typically even if I tried I wouldn't get service...

When was the last time you put in this kind of heart into your endeavors? This teen sure gives me hope for the future generations. Media is always talking about the negatives happening - lets start sharing more of these positive stories to encourage each other instead of depressing us all :) Way to go Jhaqueil Reagan!

Wow this is incredible!
 
From Police Academy to even awesomer.

I am by no means an amazing beat boxer, but I have very vivid memories of marching around my house as a kid beat boxing into my hands and amazing myself. (others... not so much.)

Michael Winslow was a personal hero to me and I emulated him constantly. Here's confirmation that my assessment was accurate. He still kicks many asses.

You can always count on Scott Adams to cut to the chase brilliantly. 

A big part of my personal evolution is driven by the learning that data is not the problem. It is the way Senior Leaders think that is the problem. Or more precisely it is the way they imagine the possibilities that is the problem.

Our leaders do feel that data is important, yet they don't use it. So why are so many analysts and IT folks and big data initiatives are still funded? The last pane of the comic explains that. Even if you want to ignore the data, you want it to be very very accurate. 

The comic is funny. It is painfully true.

These ominous cloud formations could be of a completely new type

What you're seeing here is a cloud formation so rare that it defies classification. Meteorologists suspect that these are undulatus asperatus clouds — an entirely new cloud type that was proposed only three years ago by the Cloud Appreciation Society. The one featured here was photographed by Witta Priester in New Zealand.

With all that you juggle every day, its easy to lose track of appointments, plans, and reminders. With today's expansion of our Gmail Search Field Trial (http://goo.gl/dQGNs), we've added Calendar results to your Gmail and Drive results. You can learn your entire schedule for the day by searching for [what is on my calendar today]. Or if you'd want to know when you're meeting up with your friend Bryan for lunch, type [when am i meeting bryan]. 

A search is a search, and with the field trial you can securely see results that are important to you, no matter where the answer may be.

I've been to a fair amount of buffets and I typically loathe them. I came here with my family of 6 (4 kids, my wife, and I) and it cost us $35. The food was surprisingly very fresh, tables and overall facilities were kept clean, and employees were very pleasant. The dessert bar was amazing with some wonderful cakes and pies. I gave this a 4 instead of 5 stars simply because the restroom was a bit of a mess, and it's overall pretty hard to get 5 stars at a buffet in my book, but this was quite close.

My family of 6 stayed here traveling from socal to sacramento and we paid only $50 through hotwire. We didn't expect much for the price but everyone on hotwire was satisfied so since we just needed a place to sleep and nothing else so we tried it. To my surprise, our stay was absolutely wonderful. The carpet throughout was slightly stained but otherwise our room rivaled that of places charging 3 times what we paid. Very spacious room. Having a refrigerator and microwave, along with a seperate couch and spacious clean bathroom made the room very plesant. The service was incredible as we called ahead and told them we would need a crib and ensure the room had two beds for our family. We also told them when we would arrive so tgey made sure the ac was set and room was cool inside. The night we stayed the low for the night outside was 90 (hot!) They were pleasant and the crib was in our room as requested. We have done this request many times with many hotels and rarely is it fulfilled in advance as requested. Lastly the breakfast. Some say don't bother on other google reviews. I say it was wonderful for what we paid. Our family of 6 can easily spend $50 on breakfast alone and that's what our whole stay cost. Our family had sausage, fresh made waffles (you make them), english muffins, oatmeal, hardboiled eggs, coffee, juice, cereal, and other miscellaneous items. The person managing the breakfast area and front desk was very polite, accomodating, kept food well stocked, and tended to requests quickly with a can do attitude, happy to help. This very well could be our standard stop when traveling through, and would highly recommend to others. For the price, my overall score would be 5 out of 5 stars on value and overall experience.
