I just updated my Blogger template that's based on GWSK.

I got the Blogger PageList (navigation) working and cleaned up some things with the header and mobile menu. I'm still planning on adding more Blogger controls like colors and fonts...

you can check out my blog for a demo of the template: http://www.extremis.com

+John Skeats​ has a great tip/truck for removing yourself from someone else's Circles: block then unblock.
 
Concerned about Unknown People Circling You on Google+? 

Many people who are new to Google+ get concerned by notifications that a person they do not know circled them. The truth is that having someone circle you is completely harmless. Circling on Google+ is not like "friending" on Facebook, which is a two-way relationship. 

The most common concern is that the unknown person might be able to see your private information. They cannot. A person who adds you to their circles can only see information that you share with Public or possibly with Extended circles if that person is in the circles of someone in your circles. People who add you cannot see posts or anything else shared only with your Circles unless, of course, you add them to your Circles.

Another common concern is that unknown people might be able to spam your Stream. That too is impossible. Having you in one of their circles allows people to attempt to share posts with you but the posts will not appear in your Stream unless you add them to your circles. 

That being said, some people simply do not want to be in specific people's circles for one reason or another. You can remove yourself from a person's circles by blocking them. Blocking can cause complications for you, however, so a simple trick is to block a person and then immediately unblock them. (Unblocking does not add you back to their circles.) Using this trick would not prevent them from circling you again, but the odds are excellent that they won't notice that you are no longer in their circles.

If you have further concerns about your privacy on Google+, I encourage you to read the following post about controlling your privacy on Google+:

Yahoooooooo!

I love Aviate. You could say it's the "Yahoo Directory" of mobile launchers.

Yahoo Mail is third place in my book, behind Gmail and Outlook, but it's definitely gotten 1000x better under +Marissa Mayer​'s watch.

Yahoo Weather is beautiful and Yahoo News provides incredible news notifications.

I'm not sure what's going on with Yahoo Messenger, but I know people still use it (no one I know, lol, but people).

Yahoo is a great Internet company and is rising again under Marissa Mayer's leadership.

I've used aviate since it was in beta, I can't imagine using anything else.
As for yahoo mail, I found it to let some spam through than AOL mail.
Yahoo messenger, is that still a thing?

Why is Tech Journalism so bad?

/rant

Google Wave, Buzz, and Orkut were all a part of Eric Schmidt Google. Not Larry Page Google. They were "shut down" in a world where Google Labs existed and shutting projects down was actually the plan... projects would grow until they could be incorporated into whichever main product made most sense. Wave became Drive collaboration. Orkut and Buzz became the Google+ Profile and Stream.

Splitting up the G+ products is more about consumer behavior: people who want to communicate will use Hangouts, those who want to share photos (and videos, oddly enough) will use Photos, those who want to blog will use Stream.

Facebook has also split! Messenger_must_ be installed now. Instagram and WhatsApp have remained separate communities. Google has simply decided that separate apps (products) make most sense for their organization.

That means nothing about the future of G+. It still exists exactly as Larry Page described it from the very start. Google is search. Google+ is everything else:
Google+ Streams (Wave, Buzz, Orkut, Blogger)
Google+ Photos (Picasa, Drive)
Google+ Videos (YouTube)

We should be talking about "What's the future of Blogger"... not Google+!

+Jeff Bond There will be more done in the future to make the platform easier to host yourself. Also, hosting providers running Sandstorm wont be able to effectively snoop on your data with any luck, so they'll also be decent options.

I'll defer to my Personal Beer Expert. +Chris Jenkins​, is this an accurate decision tree? ;)
 
Pick your (delicious) poison with this flowchart to different types of beer! Maybe you're in the mood to try something new?

Man, I love everything. I don't have a go-to beer. Lately I've been drinking a lot of the Weyerbacher Merry Monks, but I also love ESB's, amber lagers, hoppy IPA's (the more imperial the better), Imperial Stouts...hell, the only thing I can't really get down on is sours.

Google Play services 7.0 - Places Everyone!

We're now rolling out a new version of Google Play services to Android devices worldwide. This update brings the latest and greatest APIs from Google including a new Location Settings Dialog and new Places API:

Location Settings Dialog - We’re making it easy to check for optimal location settings and offer a one touch control for users to change their settings with the Location Settings Dialog.

Places API - Brand new to Google Play Services is the Places API, giving you access to all of the places and business details through the Place Picker dialog or through your own UI using the getCurrentPlace() API and our autocomplete search results.

Google Fit - Fit is slimming down their memory usage and splitting the Fitness.API into multiple separate APIs as well as added support for body fat percentage and sleep data.

Google Mobile Ads - Google Mobile Ads SDK integrations will now automatically provide Google Analytics integration, giving you extra insight into your users.

Google Play Games - Announced at GDC (http://goo.gl/6ewnwr), this release adds the Nearby Connections API, allowing games to seamlessly connect smartphones and tablets as second-screen controls to the game running on your TV.

App Indexing - We’ve simplified the App Indexing API to make it even easier to get your app into Google Search results.

You'll be able to get started with the new APIs as soon as the Google Play services rollout is complete -- a process we expect to take several days. We'll then release the updated Google Play services SDK and you'll be able to download it through the Android SDK manager. Watch for more information coming soon.

Check out the post below for details.

I supported +Martian Watches​ on their first crowd funding campaign. Even though I'm now am Android Wear fanboy, I seriously respect this company for sticking to their vision.

Not all smartwatches need to be the same. They don't all need full color displays.
 
Lots for everyone to see at Mobile World Congress #MWC15 #smartwatch #wristwatch #fashion #tech

I love wearable devices and ubiquitous computing:
