Amazing press from today's Apture Hotspots launch. So proud of the team:

"When you see the web rewrite itself like this, it’s kind of like magic. Every time we search, we’re effectively teaching the web that a synapse is missing, and Apture fills it in."

One thing I don't like about the Google+ integration with Google.com: that when I'm on google.com and I click on "+Tristan", there's no obvious way to get back to google.com proper and just search. I feel like I have to go back to my address bar and search from omnibox, or type Google.com.

I'm pretty capable but feel like some people might get confused when the static gray bar at the top suddenly changes all its search-related tabs out for "Gmail, Calendar, Documents, Photos, Reader" etc.

C'mon not like that's a big deal or anything... just shifting around a few links on the top of a page that generates billions of dollars per year shouldn't be too controversial :)
