“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”

As an inspiration, Steve Jobs will live on.

Keep an eye on Facebook today. I'm actually fairly excited to see their next phase of evolution, as up until this point it's simply appeared as a game of catch-up with G+. I really do want to see Facebook as an innovate platform again.

Everything I wished I could do in Hangouts. Implemented. Good luck keeping up, Facebook.
Beyond thrilled to announce a slew of new Google+ features today AND we are now in Open Beta!
::cue music:: I wanna rock and roll all night and party every day!

Introducing the stars of our show...

1) Open Beta - This means invitations are no longer needed - 18+ only.
2) Search in Google+ - Organizing the information within Google+ and making it easy to discover content you're allowed to view! Find people, posts, and hot topics!
3) Mobile Hangouts - Now you don't have to tell your friends "Oh dang, that party last night was killer!" Now, you can party with 9 friends in real time via your mobile phone! (Available on Android devices to start)
4) Hangouts with extras - A preview of new features including named Hangouts, note-sharing, screensharing, and Google Docs collaboration!
5) Hangouts On Air - Tune into a live public stream of a Hangout inside the Google+ stream and once you’re “On Air,” up to 9 others can join your hangout, and anyone can watch your live stream. (limited number of hosts at start)
5) Hangouts API - The world is your oyster with the Hangouts platform - we're releasing a basic set of APIs today!
6) Mobile has too much good stuff so I made them a section (see below)!

Mobile is rockin' out - here's what's new

1) Renaming Huddle to Messenger - the evolution of something great!
2) Set your profile photo from any photo of you on your phone, tagged of you, or in the cloud - because you express yourself anywhere, at anytime.
3) +1 comments and see who else +1’d a comment (coming soon) - Yay!
4) Move your Google+ app to your SD card (Android only) - Yay!
5) Improved +Mention support - we're always looking to make your experience better!
6) Send a photo in Messenger - making conversations richer!
7) Granular push notification options - so you see just what you want!
8) Receive and participate in Messenger, Post to Google+, and receive Google+ Notifications via SMS (US and India only) - Yay!
9) Playback user uploaded videos (not just YouTube videos) in your stream and share videos that have been uploaded via Instant Upload (Android only) - because we're always wanting to share those cool vids our friends share with us!

Would love your feedback in the comments below, and as always, I love +1s and +mentions so I know how you're feeling.
