The best part about Google Hangouts when it first launched is that it was passive. You started a Hangout, told it which people were allowed to join, and they could see it in their feed and join at their leisure.

But now it rings everyone in a circle I invite like a phone call, quite possibly annoying them if they're not interested. Not cool, +Google.

Maybe. Just keep an eye on it.

Hmm...unlocked bootloaders? A whole line of Nexus phones, please?

I agree with you. I'd have a Moto now if they had unlocked bootloaders. But instead I have a Gnex. I will be excited to have my next phone be a Moto Nexus I can buy unlocked. ::crosses fingers::

And this is what I'm talking about when I say Police State. And as if the raid isn't bad enough, Obama's DOJ is expected to ask the case to be dismissed so it won't set a precedent. Reading this made me sick and very sad. :(

‎Among the most disturbing emails in the Wikileaks GIF files is this one, written by a Stratfor analyst to the head of the firm. It gives us a troubling taste of how these private security companies view their role as intermediary between the government and the people:

"Regarding SF landmarks of interest--they need something like Trapwire more for threats from activists than from terror threats. Both are useful, but the activists are ever present around here."


If this doesn't scare the shit out of you, you are part of the problem.

If a social network didn't have ads, respected your privacy and personal information, and focused on the user experience instead of trying to generate ad revenue, would you pay for it? I'd seriously consider it.

‎"So we have a widespread network of surveillance cameras across America monitoring us and reporting suspicious activity back to a centralized analysis center, mixed in with the ability to imprison people via military force on the basis of suspicious activity alone."

In case you didn't think it was time for a regime change. +Gary Johnson 2012!

Story
Introduction
I block random people who randomly Circle me, so state your business if you add me.
Inspected the used vehicle I'm considering purchasing free of charge. They took it for a drive, and even put it up on the lift and let me have a look under the car for myself. That's earns them a good mark in my book.

I made it very clear I did not intend to put down a deposit to hold the vehicle I was interested in, and that I would be taking it to a mechanic for an inspection. I was told that would be fine, so I drove two hours down from Wisconsin, only to be told I'd have to commit to a deposit before taking it to the mechanic. On an as-is car! I am absolutely furious. Hours of my time, gallons of my gas, money blown on tolls, wasted. And not a shred of sympathy from these scumbags. Do yourself a favor and shop somewhere else.

I did not buy a car from Mike, if only because I ended up not being interested in it. But he's the first car salesmen I've ever met that actually seems to know more about cars than what their price tag is, so that's worth noting.
