Awesome new features coming to a phone near you!
Google+ Hangouts v2 for Android: SMS, Location, GIFs & Status!
A couple days ago we announced we’re adding a bunch of new features to Hangouts for Android, including SMS support, location sharing, animated GIFs and more.  

Here’s a bit more on what we’ve added in Hangouts v2:

- SMS/MMS (Android 4.0+): send and receive text messages in Hangouts! No more chasing conversations across apps, texts will now appear in Hangouts and you can reply right there. We also let you import all of your existing text messages into the app, send/receive group texts and even text emoji to your friends on Android, iPhone, etc.  

- Animated GIFs: view and send GIFs in your Hangout, you can even send your Auto Awesomed photos (and kitten GIFs, of course). 

- Location: you can now quickly share your location into conversations.

- Device, in-call, mood status: share what device you’re using, whether you’re on a call, or your current mood. Status appears in conversations right alongside the “read up to here” indicator. 

There are also some general improvements we’ve made: it’s quicker to start new conversations, you can now attach photos from other sources like Google Drive, and we added some butter to make the app faster & smoother. 

Starting today, you can check out Hangouts v2 on #nexus5 , and over the next few weeks, we’ll be rolling it out to everyone on the Play Store. 

We’re pretty excited about this release (and hope you are too) so hang tight, and we’ll get it in your hands soon enough. Enjoy!

Dear Americafriends. As an alien, I'm basically powerless to do anything worthwhile to protest SOPA/PIPA. But you can. Please contact every representative you can, from city to federal, and let them know that you're against baseless censorship and cronyism.

It's an incredibly unpleasant feeling, watching the free and open internet be held under the gun in such a fashion and not being able to do anything about it. Innovation on the internet as we know it will come to a screeching halt.

Here's a quick and easy way to find your representatives:

Now go make some noise.

Ohhh man. I just discovered Caravan Palace (thanks +Spotify!), a Parisian electroswing/gypsy jazz band. Their music rocks.
They've got it all: Jazz guitar, jazz violin, woodwinds, and the just right amount of electronica.

Yup, this is music is bliss.
