We’re starting to roll out verification badges on profiles so you can be sure the person you’re adding to a circle is who they claim to be. Check out the video below (or my profile) to see what these verification badges look like.
For now, we’re focused on verifying public figures, celebrities, and people who have been added to a large number of Circles, but we’re working on expanding this to more folks.
Thanks again for sending in your feedback!
Many celebrities and public figures are joining Google+, and if you’re like me, you want to be sure the person you’re adding to a circle is really who they claim to be.
Today, I’m happy to announce that we’re starting to roll out verification badges on profiles.
When you visit the profile of a celebrity or public figure, you’ll see a verification badge next to their profile name. This will help you easily determine which profiles are owned by real, verified people.
Here’s an example: In my profile on the top right, you’ll see a grey checkmark next to my name. When you mouse over it, you’ll see that this is a “verified name”.
You might be wondering how to verify your own name on Google+. For now, we’re focused on verifying public figures, celebrities, and people who have been added to a large number of Circles...but keep in mind that this is just the beginning. We’re working on expanding this to include more people in the future, so hang tight!
We hope this improvement helps you feel more comfortable adding people to your circles. Thanks for listening, I’ll see you on Google+!
Why? I'm not really sure. At first, I thought it was just because I became really interested in G+ itself. It focused my mind, and made me start reading & thinking in a voracious manner. Then as I started to write and rewrite this post, I started to think it was the G+ community that's sharing and writing stuff that's getting me excited. Maybe I'm being inspired by others?
I read a quote from Lady Gaga where she said she just hopes she gets all her songs out before she dies. I'm kinda feeling that way right now. I have too many ideas to tackle at once and the more I consume my feed on Google+ the more I add to the list. And I'm not talking about business ideas -- I'm talking about people I want to meet, places I want to go, things I want to write, and ways to make the world better.
One month ago I was trying to decide between COD4 and Tiger Woods Golf. Pizza or Thai food. I'd been in that mode for several years. I'd chosen things in life that were enjoyable, but more passive. Sitting on the beach, watching movies. Even snowboarding & surfing to me was not "active" -- it was relaxation. I loved relaxing in that manner, and it may have been in reaction to an intensive 6 or 7 years of work. But it's also been thrilling to feel the spark of creativity come alive in me.
I never really thought much about what makes you creative. But I think there's some power in these here interwebz. If you're getting the itch and wish you could spark some creative juices right now, as an experiment, try browsing around G+ and adding the most interesting people you can to your feed. Let me know how it goes in the coming weeks. Or maybe some of you have already experienced this already yourselves on G+ ... ?

Quoted from the Chrome Blog
"A few weeks ago, we announced that Google’s Instant Pages feature would be available to our Chrome beta channel users. Today, we’re happy to let you know that Instant Pages is on by default in the latest stable version of Chrome. This means that sometimes when you click a Google search result in Chrome, the page will appear to load much faster than before. How much faster? In the video below, you can see a side by side comparison of Chrome with and without Instant Pages enabled."
"We’re also really excited to announce that print preview is available for Windows and Linux users in the latest stable version of Chrome. (Hold tight Mac users, it’s coming!) Many people have been asking for print preview in Chrome for a long time, and we wanted to do it right, using our fast built-in PDF viewer and an easy “print to PDF” option. Thanks for your patience as we’ve plugged away on this feature."
"In addition to adding new features to Chrome, we’re continually working to improve our old favorites. The omnibox, Chrome’s combination search box and address bar, has gotten much smarter in the latest release, making it even easier for you to get back to pages you’ve visited before. Just type part of the page's address or title and look in the dropdown for matching pages from your history. Enjoy!
