+J phase​ how are you doing buddy? Randomly saw your name and wanted to say Hi. 

+Evernote   With the launch of Android Wear, the one feature that would make Evernote & Android Wear killer together would be geofenced reminders!

+Adobe  shame on you!  I give a unique email address to each online service.  Today I received SPAM in my email address designated for Adobe!  Shame on you for either A) sharing my email address with a third party OR B) Email addresses have been compromised from your servers.

Hey +Evernote I randomly saw that post-it support was in the Android version... finally! Your blog is in my RSS feeds and I never saw it announced. Don't let such a big announcement be on one platform for so long next time. Thank you.

So ever since I upgraded to OS X Mavericks, my Macbook Pro had been running really slowly. I looked into it a bit and Mavericks alone takes up like 1.5GB of memory and my laptop had only 2GB. This past week I ordered the max amount of ram I could for the laptop. This evening I installed the new 8GB of ram which makes the machine feels like new again!

This is the exact reason I will not buy a computer which are glued together (which prevents memory/hard drive upgrades). While 2GB of ram was OK back in 2009, it is no longer good for 2014. If my computer had been glued together, I would be looking at a new laptop instead of a $113 upgrade.

Thanks to my wife for helping deal with the tiny screws and tight fit areas that my big fingers couldn't manage.

This is pretty awesome.  With the functionality shown in the video, I'd want Google Glass today!

I just found a cool tip online, where everything you write into +Google+  ends up in +Evernote.  It's one of the 15 tips in the linked to article.

I agree!

To all those criticizing +Marissa Mayer for her no more telecommute decision.  Having worked at a company which required workers to be in the office or on sick/vacation helped the productivity of the teams in mu opinion.  At another job having been in a situation where the person you need to talk to is out of reach is annoying and counter-productive.

I'm betting once Yahoo rebuilds itself to be more successful, this no telecommute mandate will soften.
