Google Wallet nee Checkout has suspended my account. It didn't tell me of course, just says transaction failed, try again in 24 hours. Only when you try to update the credit card does it say that I need to proof who I am by uploading a variety of documents. Adding another credit card gives the same result, so it seems my account is suspended, not my card.

What fraud detection algorithm thinks it is plausible that I got an account 9 years ago, spend thousands of dollars and now have gone rogue trying to buy 10 dollars in credit for making phone calls from hangouts?

I'm in San Francisco. Mostly as a surprise for +Stephanie Hannon birthday, but also for some light meetings. Ping me if you want to hang out!

What an awesome surprise it was!  I am only sad that you didn't get to see Randy, Gabor, Andrew, Brandon, Jochen, Greg and ACD at the shindig.  It was a happy Sydney and Zurich reunion.

We all know that the pc market is shrinking and that people are moving en masse to mobile. So what's going on here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usage_share_of_web_browsers#StatCounter_.28July_2008_to_present.29

In the last half year mobile web use seems to have been flat. Android's market share vs iOS hasn't shifted much either. Are people happy to use the facebook app on their devices and stay away from the scary web out there?

Every single mobile web page says "hey why not use out app" all over it before crashing.

Jun Mei, one of our programmers, take on what you could do with glass based on the +Triposo data.
 
#ifihadglass
I’d travel the world with new eyes.
I’d navigate myself and start experiencing.
I’d discover hidden gems and start indulging.
I’d join local festivals and start celebrating.
I’d hear a new band and start rocking.
With Glass, my life would be spontaneous and free.

This is the place to bring your friends if you want them to experience that distinct type of rudeness you get from time to time in Berlin. It was getting late and we asked for the bill but were pretty much ignored. Then at exactly 1AM the entire staff set down at the bar and started smoking. Ignored and now being smoked at we decided to wait outside for the bill. That did draw their attention and we were called some names. We had the money ready but were told never to come back. Not that there was much of a risk of that of course.
