So if someone adds me to a circle, even if I block them because I have no idea who on earth they are, they can still see my public posts? And that makes me want to use G+ why exactly?

Randomly tried plus.google.com, thinking I'd get the "sign up to be notified" dialogue - instead of which it let me join and create a profile straight away. Now to figure this thing out ...

Ben - It didn't take long to get Android up to speed. By keeping the PLUS platform 'open' I am hopeful that in time it will become more useful.

While reading about HP's decision to effectively kill the last vestiges of Palm, our mail guy asked me to sign for a package with an old grayscale hand-held scanner running Palm OS. Made me nostalgic for the good-old days (says the guy who owned a Pilot, a Palm III, a Palm VII, an m505, an m515, a Handspring Visor, a Tungsten C, three different Clie models ...)

As much as Google has been discouraging businesses from using + and emphasizing it for personal connections, I find myself being added to circles almost hourly by people I've never heard of who seem to have a professional angle. Anyone else having this experience?

I seem to be getting a lot of adds from Arab finance professionals. I wonder if G+ is becoming a haven of sorts, the way Orkut did for Brazilians? (Not that there's a problem with that in the slightest, I find the whole process fascinating ...)
