This Makes Me Miss My Nexus One

It also makes me think that I will definitely be buying a Nexus going forward. My current phone (also an HTC) has fared fairly well, but still has lagged for long periods of time.

The lack of ICS on Nexus One is understandable, but still a kick in the groin.

Trick or Treat!

Thanks +DJ Nourse for instruction how to bake-in this cool ring icon :)

A Huge Android Circle

I've been collecting Android developers and others associated with Android development for weeks now. My circle is over 1,500 people, but Google+ only allows me to share 500. Enjoy, and add me to your Android circle too!

Daphne Chagrin shared a circle with you.

This is one of the coolest ads I've seen in the last year. Incredibly creative and visually striking.

And now for something from the WTF category...

Wow, this presidential campaign is getting very interesting. I've never seen anything even close to this. Kinda creepy, but kinda cool too.
And now for something completely different #politics

First off, I'm only sharing this because it's so radically outside of the box.

That being said, I can't help but share these publicly. I'll stop if you guys want, just let me know.

Please keep comments on topic and in relation to my questions - this isn't a left vs. right thread, and I'll delete comments that steer it that way.

Sadly, I have to have this disclaimer / warning.

This is the most insane, crazy presidential campaign ad I've ever seen in years.
IMHO, it easily tops the smoker in the parking garage..

Succeed of fail, will Herman Cain's campaign be remembered as bringing humor back to political advertising?

What are your thoughts? Unprofessional? Refreshing?

Would you consider this a positive or a negative ad? Will it appeal to independents?

The Reagan campaign is remembered for its masterful use of imagery. Will Cain's be remembered as mastering the viral nature of social networks?

Do these have to potential to go viral? (Asks the man who shares the video). Heh.

I can't help it, this made me laugh.

Post has shared content - Your Google+ powered blogging platform.

I invite you all to check out my latest project,, a blogging platform which repurposes your public Google+ posts as Blog posts. Your Blog will be updated daily and will include any photos, videos and comments that are found on your posts.

Can the Blog be customised at all?

Yes, it can! You have control over the following settings:

- Theme (There are currently two themes that can be used, with more to come.)
- Number of posts on each page
- Toggle post pages to show summaries
- Whether or not to include photo posts

You are also able to choose to hide certain posts from your Blog, it is as simple as unticking a box and it will be hidden.

Future plans

There are many things planned for the site, here are a couple I am excited about:

- Custom CSS stylesheets (Style your blog to look however you want it to.)
- Subdomains (Use to access your blog)


Please keep in mind that this site is going through a beta phase so if you come across any bugs please let me know of them. I also welcome any suggestions for features that people may have.

Google have graciously provided me with an API boost so you should not have to worry about the site running out of quota and people missing out.

Please help spread the word, your reshares are appreciated

What Would Women Give Up for Google+?

People LOVE Facebook enough to give up sex. What would we give up to keep our hands on Google+?

It's obviously a subjective measure, but drives home the point of how pervasive Facebook has become, and how important it is for many people as a form of communication, entertainment, and business.

Being perfectly honest, I'm not giving up sex yet for G+. Or Facebook for that matter...

What I Want in a Google Music Store

I'm assuming that Google will provide all of the stuff that is being established as the min-bar, including cloud storage. As for the twist, here's where I think Google could innovate and perhaps even leapfrog Apple to a degree.

Discovery - When I want to find music to listen to, I fire up iTunes. Then I go buy on Amazon. Apple is king here now, but they leave LOTs to be desired. Their social play has yet to take off, and Google has lots of ways to be creative here with Google+. Add a Music tab along with photos, videos, etc. to my profile. Bring sparks into the equation.

Subscription - Google does cloud better than anyone but maybe Amazon right now, from a consumer perspective. I don't even think about gmail, calendar, etc. being "in the cloud" anymore. It just is. If Google can get the vendors to line up, they have the pull to make a subscription model in conjunction with an effective cloud offering work from a consumer perspective. At the end of the day, Google could solve all of these licensing issues in one fell swoop by acquisition...

Commercialization - This is a bit outside of the box, but it would be great to see Google figure out the right model for offering free access to a massive library of music. They've cracked the monetization of the free web, they're doing pretty well at monetizing free access to video. Why not do Pandora right?

What did I miss?
