Google+ is now broke Bradley Horowitz. Streams without API's or RSS (whatever that is) is a joke. FriendFeed still exists and is of more use.

Google Photos - mweh! Instragram and flickr have my ass covered. 

I am really curious about how Google is going to mess up Google cars.

Sorry for all the negatives - but seriously Google why should I get excited? Maps, gmail and android are awesome. Adwords are awesome for google's cashflow...

Mastering Vim
Understanding Vim's Lesser-Known Features for More Effective Editing

By Damian Conway. Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: September 2014 Run time: 3 hours 25 minutes

Summary
Vim has literally thousands of commands. No one can know them all. This 3 hour tutorial series will explain and show some really use commands and vimrc setups

Reaction
The pros and cons of watching a video instead of reading a book! With a book you can quickly flick to a page. But O'Reilly has something for that. You can play the video back at 1.5x and 2x speed. Which is very useful. This product is for beginners and intermediates. I am not a VIM expert and I use spf13-vim on OSX. I found that not all the commands worked (like CTRL+Y). There are more than enough useful tips. But watching videos take time. It is useful if you need to see it working. Otherwise the "UNIX power tools" book from O'Reilly is a gem and contains great information about VIM, bash and regex.

O'Reilly publishing approached me with a view of reviewing books for them. Having a lot of respect for them I agreed. That does not mean automatic good reviews. While the information and advice contained in the video is of high quality I am not sure I can recommend this product. The reason simply being the content is in Video format and it does not suit me in this case. Because the information contained is good it does get 4 stars.

The Project Management Tool Kit

100 Tips and Techniques for Getting the Job Done Right
By Tom Kendrick, Publication Date: December 19, 2013. Publisher: AMACOM.

Summary
This book based on the “Project Management Institute (PMI) PMBOK® Guide, Fifth Edition (2013)” is a quick reference book. Each technique starts with a "what, when, result" intro and then moves to define the issues and develop an approach to solve them and how to communicate to customer. Each tip is very process oriented. The tips and techniques are organised in a start to finish scenario.

Reaction
I would recommend this book to beginners but it is a good quick reference for those more experienced in the project management field. The book covers many scenarios common to every phase of a project. It provides approaches, not case studies. It is a reference book and may not be 'as fleshed out' as you may wish for. But I found it a very useful and succinct book.

It covers a wide range of issues including conflict resolution, cancelling projects, motivation, planning, costs, resource issues among other things.

O'Reilly publishing approached me with a view of reviewing books for them. Having a lot of respect for them I agreed. That does not mean automatic good reviews. In this case I have no hesitation in recommending this book.
