...welcome comment trolls from YouTube
When we launched Google+ over three years ago, we had a lot of restrictions on what name you could use on your profile. This helped create a community made up of real people, but it also excluded a number of people who wanted to be part of it without using their real names. 

Over the years, as Google+ grew and its community became established, we steadily opened up this policy, from allowing +Page owners to use any name of their choosing to letting YouTube users bring their usernames into Google+. Today, we are taking the last step: there are no more restrictions on what name you can use. 

We know you've been calling for this change for a while. We know that our names policy has been unclear, and this has led to some unnecessarily difficult experiences for some of our users. For this we apologize, and we hope that today's change is a step toward making Google+ the welcoming and inclusive place that we want it to be. Thank you for expressing your opinions so passionately, and thanks for continuing to make Google+ the thoughtful community that it is.

The editing control they give you over these things is really inadequate

Right now I bloody love the BBC World Service on Google+.  A lot of organisations would have let it run but they just zapped a 'phobe, not so much for offensive language (no 4-letter words) but mostly just for being disgustingly ignorant.

Which artist would you like to see represented on your country's stamps? The Finnish postal service is launching a set of stamps to commemorate the work of the late Tom of Finland - one of the country's best known exports, famous for his emphatically masculine, proudly homoerotic drawings. In this interview Timo Berry, who helped design the stamps, explains what makes Tom of Finland's art unique.

Yes because heaven forbid people decide what to view for themselves.

Bit of a double-edged sword. Hope they offer the same control over third party tagging for this as they do for photos etc.

So not only will this be chasing you across a post-apocalyptic wasteland trying to kill you - it'll be able to read your email at the same time.
Google has bought an engineering company that developed the world's fastest-running robot:  http://bbc.in/1cw1a9z

#BostonDynamics is the eighth robotics firm to be snapped up by the technology giant this year and has contracts with the US military.

Analysts say consumer internet companies are increasingly interested in robotics - and it isn't long since Amazon announced plans for a fleet of delivery drones.

Do you think we'll see a #Google Robot soon?
