why I'm not enjoying engagement on google plus so far? no threaded comments. just like it plagued friendfeed, it's an utter LACK of engagement as it merely encourages commentors to ignore threads and say something directly to the original poster. thats not community, thats not engaging, its flat and uninspired. and yes, that's just my opinion.

My disagreement was just to the statement that in order for Google+ to replace Facebook, Google must not just make incremental improvements to Facebook.

I agree that the larger the set of beneficial changes Google+ makes over Facebook, the better chances it has. Has it made enough? Who knows. Time will tell I suppose. I already like it more due to how it links people up differently.

But the real truth of the matter is, challenging Facebook is likely near impossible, regardless of how well you execute. Google+ could do everything right, but people still may not come over because of the difficulty in getting people to change social networks. Social networks are unlike most other services because they offer next to no benefit to an individual in isolation. When that individual comes over if the majority of the invdivudal's set of friends also don't come over, the service is useless.

I think it's helpful to keep in mind that no one has ever defeated a business like Facebook. Some might say that Facebook defeated Myspace, but the world of social networking was vastly different when Facebook arose. Myspace wasn't like Facebook is today. Many people weren't on any social networking whatsoever. Back then, it really was good enough just to be slightly better than another social networking site, because many people hadn't made a choice yet. You didn't even have to be better really. You could simply serve a different set of people and have a chance (which is in essence what Facebook did).

Cracking social networks in the post Facebook era is really tough. I think Google+ has a chance (but I am of course biased) because Google has a tremendous amount of other products they can tie in to Google+ that Facebook doesn't. But, many of the other changes Google can make to Facebook, Facebook can simply replicate themselves. They've got smart and focused engineers working for them too. ;)

why is it that the default behavior of having signed up to use G+ is that anyone who follows me is allowed to dump their crap in my inbox?

Poor choice of terms by google. Your stream is your inbox not the folder called Incoming.

Dear Jeremy,

I hope you will open your heart to understand this mail..I am Mrs Jessie Barcelo, my late husband worked with the Chevron/Texaco in Qatar for twenty years before he died in the year 2006.We were married for ten years without a child. My Husband died after a brief illness that lasted for only two weeks.

Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home. When my late husband was alive we deposited the sum of USD$5 Milllion with ACE CONSULT SECURITY SERVICES LTD UK,. The management of the Company just wrote me as the beneficiary to come forward to sign for the release of this funds or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf if I can not come over.

Presently, I'm in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for CHD, Coronary Artery Heart Disease. My doctors have told me that I have only a few months to live. It is my last wish to see this funds distributed to the needy and poor within. Because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness, I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them.My health condition is worse presently.

Please, I'm seeking for any honest person who will get the Funds from the security company and will use this money to fund the poor, orphanages, widows and less previllaged.I am glad to have your contact and your willingness to do it.

I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and I don't want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by his greedy relatives. I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going.

Due to the state of my health,I do not need long telephone communication. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the director of the Security company with the letter of Authorization i will give to you as he will be the one to assist you in releasing the funds.To enable me prepare the letter of Authorization,please furnish me the details listed below.Here is my phone number +447968648911,you can reach me ,Via Short message.

1.Full Names:
2.Address:
3.Direct Telephone No:
4.Nationality:
4.Age:
5.Copy of your identity:
6.Bank Account/Bank Name
7.Swift code

Awaiting your response.

Sincerely Yours,
Mrs Jessie Barcelo.

Thanks +Jeremy Toeman and +Maksim Ioffe for giving me a very complete look at the Dijit/Griffin Beacon (find more about that here: http://www.griffintechnology.com/beacon ).

This turns your iPhone into a very cool remote control.

What do you think? Is this the future of your home entertainment system?
