Interesting to see Obama featured so prominently. Also that "women" is bigger than "men". Is "Mitt" slightly bigger than "Romney"?

Hadn't heard of this service before, fascinating. Wonder how legit it is?
I was quite excited by the announced NBC Olympics coverage until I realized that they wouldn't broadcast nor stream the opening/closing ceremonies live and that to stream the Olympics I was required to have a cable subscription with MSNBC or CNBC (which I don't have).

The solution is simple: spend $4.99 and enjoy a better coverage of the Olympics via the BBC.

After testing various solutions (proxies, VPNS etc..), I found out that the easiest, cheapest and best quality solution to stream the Olympics is to use the http://unblock-us.com service. Β They offer a free trial of a week (no credit cards required) and the way their solution works is great. You change your machine or router's DNS settings to use their DNS and they take take of the geo-protection issues so you can watch the great BBC coverage of the Olympics on your computers and/or your mobile devices:Β http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/olympics/2012/live-video

Because you don't have to go through a VPN, your bandwidth isn't limited by the VPN's capacity. I probably wouldn't recommend this solution long term (seems quite hacking/fragile) if you are planning on watching a lot of European content, however it seems to be the best solution for the Olympics.

Ha! Wait, who was expecting the iPhone 5?
That awkward moment when you were expecting iPhone 5 and all you got was iOS 6 with turn by turn navigation, something Android has had for years.

Congrats to +Shannon Bullard Sweetser on her new role at +Google as the Boston Community Coordinator for Google+ Local! Look forward to seeing more from Google on this and how it will impact community and events here in Boston.
So, I have news... exciting news!

Starting June 4th, 2012 I start work full-time as the Boston Community Coordinator for Google+ Local!

That's right, I'll be spending my summer working alongside Boston's very own Caped Crusader +Adri Cowan, Boston Community Manager for Google+ Local. Together, we'll be working on building engagement within the Boston community, planning large scale events, and also getting people pumped to share places they recommend with people they trust on Google+.

My 9 year anniversary of living in Boston is coming up in August 2012. I look forward to spending it at Google. If you want to help get my time at Google off to a good start, I invite you to take a few minutes to write a few lines on your favorite Greater Boston restaurant, bar, or shop in Google+ Local (https://plus.google.com/local).

NOTE: If you have already written reviews on Google Places, it's easy to import those reviews into Google+ Local. Just go to the Google+ Local homepage and look to the right-hand side of your screen. There should be a tool that prompts you to import your reviews from Google Places into Google+ Local.

Sending lots of freeze frame high fives to you all. Stay tuned for more from me as the days of Google begin.
