Saent is a new device that blocks distractions and helps you find your optimal work rhythm so you can be more productive. I've been working with the company for a few months and we just launched our Indiegogo campaign. Any support would be awesome!

This would be extremely beneficial in an 'open office' environment.  Many companies have changed their cubicle farm design to lower walls to achieve a more spacious feel.

Although this has been accomplished, it also makes for very loud phone calls, which are quite distracting.

Another area that might benefit from this are patient rooms in hospitals; especially shared rooms.

I wish you the best with this product and look forward to updates on your progress.

I've been working on a project in my spare time and weekends for a few months called Dickens. It's a new breed of software for fiction writers. It's almost ready to share with the public, but in the meantime, if you write fiction, I'd love to hear about your writing process and the features you'd love to see in software for writers. Please take a moment to fill out the survey here:

So I did finally get the new G+ later this afternoon... but I'm probably not motivated enough to do anything like these people......
Google+ overhauled its interface, and many users have already uploaded new cover photos. We've found 13 cover photo hacks on Google+.
