Unreal, all this over a silly phone. GET A LIFE PEOPLE!!!
 
When I post things like that +LockerGnome article, I don't think you guys understand my intent. I want to be clear on this:

Last week, I ordered an iPhone 5 as a second line. And I was ridiculed, berated, called an "iWhore," told they hoped for my DEATH or threatened me with bodily harm. Over a cell phone. 

I'm not attending the Android BBQ this year because of it. Which bums me out, because I kind of wanted to see my friends there. But I'm not going to risk being assaulted, because I work in technology. 

It shocks and upsets me that a community I've always championed would treat a member of it so cruelly.

The fact of the matter is this: When I bought my HTC EVO LTE (or my SGS2, or my EVO4G, or my SGS3, or my Nexus 7, or my Galaxy Tab 10.1), I didn't get a single comment from the iOS community with those kinds of comments. No Apple Genius said "u r a TRATOR" or "ur the dumbest bitch ever." It was radio silence. Apple fanboys might be smug, or sanctimonious, or whatever else you might want to call them -- but the one thing they they AREN'T are the kinds of people who are sending me messages like the ones I've gotten in the past week.

As much as anyone out there might read this post and think, "I didn't do those things, so I have no responsibility to stop others from doing so," I've seen it encouraged and amplified to the point of insanity. 

Civil discourse is great. Criticism is great. Sociopathy over some circuit boards and tiny screens is not great. 

And no, I'm not opening comments on this, because I don't feel like being verbally abused by some of you today.

When you attack others on a personal level for their choices (when they don't align with your choices), you're a bully.

Google Groups for Business gets a facelift

After over 11 years being one of the most popular message boards on the web and one of the most comprehensive archives for 20+ years of Usenet articles, Google Groups for Business has a new look (http://goo.gl/HdkEO) as well as a host of additional features (http://goo.gl/5QRxR) to help you better communicate within and outside your organization. We welcome your feedback so that we can continue making it a valuable and relevant communications platform in the years to come.

Updated user interface
The updated user interface has been modernized and simplified to match the new look and feel of the rest of Google Apps, with features like a configurable welcome screen and the ability to take and assign messages to members of the group.

New Collaborative Inbox
The new Collaborative Inbox lets you create a common mailbox shared across multiple users. With Collaborative Inbox, messages can be assigned to an individual and taken through a workflow based on your business needs. You can even create custom configurations by setting different permission levels to group members and with settings that apply to the entire group. 

Finding what you need in a group gets easier
Messages can be labeled using tags for convenient categorization, filtered to show messages that meet certain criteria or queried using new search operators. Group members can use their own preferences to find the information they need.
