Paper Camera is one of the cooler photo taking/transforming apps I've seen on Android. And it's free today on Amazon's appstore:

Incredible modern music video from a collaboration between OK Go, Google Chrome, and Pilobolous. Make sure you watch it in Chrome!

Like Google+, but don't want to have to choose between it and Facebook/Twitter? Now you don't have to: this Chrome extension lets you easily republish anything you post on Google+ to Facebook and/or Twitter.

Even more tips

Some useful-but-maybe-not-obvious features of Google+:

* In your stream, "Incoming" means "other people who are sharing with me" -- people who aren't yet in your circles. You can browse through it to see people who have added you.

* "Notifications" gives you the same sort of stuff that you can see in the notifications menu in the top right. (The one that turns bright red when you have an update -- not yet available in all countries) Who's added you, when you've been mentioned in a post or tagged in a photo, etc. Also, that menu at the top? Very useful.

* "Sparks" lets you get cool content relevant to your interests. Random side note: While debugging the system, we often used "Chocolate Cake" as a test interest. It turned out to be a really distracting interest.

* Hangouts are more awesome than you may suspect, because they require so little work.

* You have to click on the "Chat with people on Google+" link to enable chat within Google+ (long story as to why), but then you get IM functionality.

* The mobile app has two features of surpassing awesomeness: Huddles and Instant Upload. Huddles are everything that messaging was supposed to be but never was -- group of people, persistent conversations so you can keep chatting with people, a hell of a lot faster delivery than SMS, etc. Instant upload means that you will never have photos stranded on your phone again.

* The delete circle animation is enough fun that one is tempted to create circles and delete them just for the heck of it. Andy Hertzfeld FTW.

I'll probably think of more of these later... there are a lot of features in here, and there are even more on the way. This is called "The Google+ Project" for a reason; the future is bright and exciting.

Welcome to Google Plus, newcomers.
* +1 is the same thing as like.
* You can tag people in posts just like Facebook
* Someone adding you to a circle does NOT mean you've added them.
* When you post something, you control which circles see it.
* Download the Google+ app, and use huddle
* If you've got a good internet connection, try using the hangout feature.
* Please send feedback! You have been selected as field testers, and we need your help to polish this product.
* Feel free to share this post to welcome others to Google Plus :) Enjoy

I came in expecting an experience, and that's exactly what I got. And damn that ramen was tasty. Just don't expect it to be a fun group activity.

Pizza: 4/5. Usually I like thick crust, but the doughiness of it actually made up for that. Pretty tasty, though as other reviewers have said, slightly too oily/salty. Would have liked to see some more involved options too (they only had 1 or two basic toppings). Experience: 5/5. Tiny place, sitting at a bar right in front of the chef. He immediately makes the pizza before your eyes, throws it in the oven, and bam: it's cooked and in front of you. Great service too.

Service is unbelievable. All of the employees greet you all the time as you walk by, and they seem dedicated to making sure you're as happy as possible. Rooms are cleaned 2x daily. The view leaves something to be desired (or maybe I just wasn't up high enough). Hotel bars/restaurants are decent but way overpriced.
