If you run a Linux box, please read this.  A leap second was introduced over the weekend and it is causing several applications to peg the CPU at 100%.  This article refers to java, but I saw mysql, thunderbird, and firefox also exhibit this behavior.

Don't trust rebates from +Target Mobile . I've been waiting 6 months for a rebate I was promised when I signed up for my new +Sprint phone at Target. When I called Sprint I was told that I had to talk to the Target store where I made the purchase. I've been calling Target since November with no luck, despite promises from the manager there. The signup rebate was the ONLY reason I bought the phone the day that I did, because it was supposed to pay for my disconnection fees. Instead I had to pay those out of pocket. In all fairness, this may be Sprint's problem and not Target's, but I can't take my complaint directly to Sprint because Target was the middle man in the purchase. From now on I'm only going to deal directly with carriers when purchasing phone contracts.

I did eventually get my rebate, but it took 9 months and I had to finally get a hold of them through Facebook.

Since Google+ supports Google Apps now (and for various other reasons) I am switching back to my regular email account for Google+ and Google Talk.
