Motorcycles are different from cars because of their weight primarily. So it is very easy for 2 guys to show up in a pickup truck, pickup the bike and cover it with a tarpaulin and make off. The only way to prevent this from happening is via motion sensing.The moment the motorcycle is moved, it should start making a noise. Another thing that bikes need to be fitted with are cameras both daylight and infrared so that these can record and transmit whatever they are seeing. Let’s assume that the thieves are using some sort of noise cancellation and are wearing masks then we would need two more things: GPS and engine immobilization. GPS would help us track the vehicle down and engine immobilization would render the stolen vehicle unusable.

g+ ux feedback MAJOR FEATURE

Its time for Google to junk +1

What google needs to do is to put 5 buttons -2, -1, 0, +1, +2

These correspond to our reactions:

-2 strongly disagree
-1 somewhat disagree
0 no comment
+1 somewhat agree
+2 strongly agree

respectively

so far so good but here is the kicker. based on our past reactions, google predicts our reaction to each post and puts it next to the reaction box.

so some post might carry -1.63 and we might respond as -2 or -1 or even 0 or +1 because google CAN get it wrong on occasion.

that said, collaborative filtering can be uncannily accurate

another way google can go about this is to keep the +1 system as the public rating and the -2 to +2 system as the private rating, which also means that the predictions too are kept private

g+ ux feedback (1) how not to get the scope wrong - before posting, google prompts - are you sure you want to post to such and such (2) how to correct it later, click on scope and change it, again google prompts, just okay the change

in iOS app, the keyboard hides the scope, so users are more likely to get it wrong

Comment replies are a weak point, if not the weakest.

Agreed, threaded comments are messy but it is still possible to implement replies elegantly, here's one way.

When I am reading the comments, i simply tap on the check-box of each comment, then i tap on the text-box for writing my comment, the screen splits into two. The upper half shows only comments that i checked and the lower half has the comment text-box.

Naturally the upper half is scrollable. I just flick my finger to scroll up or down the checked comments, but here's the kicker:

in any comment, if i tap and hold a sentence, the commenter's handle as well as that sentence gets copied to my text-box, if i tap and hold some other sentence from the same comment, it is simply appended without the name.

But if I tap and hold a later comment by the same person, the handle reappears with the sentence and is placed below the first transfer.

Similarly if i tap and hold a prev comment by the same commenter, the handle reappears with the sentence but is now placed above the others.

All such transfers are chronologically ordered.

The reason why it is necessary to duplicate handles of the same person is because after my comment is published, tapping on these handles first takes the reader to the original comment from where, the reader can go to the commenter's profile if he or she wishes to do so.

some refinements

dividing the screen in two parts does not leave room for the keyboard. we can solve this problem with horizontal swipe.

swiping cycles through 5 views

post, all comments, checked comments, replies to selected comment and our own comment

views 2,3 and 4 support sorting comments by most replies, most plusses, date, ascending, descending and so on

in view 1 if we tap and hold above reshare line, the resharer handle is transferred but if we tap and hold below line, the original poster's handle is transferred

also all sentences transferred are put in double quotes

google's implementation of circles is still too primitive.

for starters, make them dynamic. a dynamic circle would be like a trending hashtag on twitter ie about a topic as opposed to a group of people.

if a user wants to say something about ios apps now gone free, all he/she has to do in include that particular circle.

google can implement dynamic circles via scope too. after we are done typing and click on the scope dialog, google can offer multiple circles to post it to in order of relevance. of these we can select all circles which appear relevant

this act can be made scientific by providing an AIRTIME rating or even full blown stats wherein for any post, google provides the list of relevant dynamic circles sorted by AIRTIME rating

AIRTIME rating is calculated by estimating how many people would read the post, how much time they would spend on it, how many would click links within the post, how much discussion / +1s would happen, any resharing or propagation potential and so on

Yes, I agree on the trending hashtag suggestion a la Twitter. When I visit the circles, I don't have a good grip on what's trending, and what people are talking about the most in the circles.

g+ ux feedback if you have a particular handle in your circles, it appears in a different color. if that person also has you in some circle then the handle appears in yet another color. this way just by looking at the color of each handle, you can tell thr connection and maybe even correct it based on the current situation

quite unexpected but ultimately google would have to deploy decision support wizards
Blake Ethridge originally shared:
 
From article:

Google chairman Eric Schmidt presaged the shift from links to answers, stating that "we're trying to move from answers that are link-based to answers that are algorithmically based, where we can actually compute the right answer."
Search optimizers and Google's 'answer' strategy have made search links irrelevant. Read this blog post by Peter Yared on Digital Media.
