I'd like to be able to watch the Kindle keynote. Please, Mr. Amazon?

What would happen if Hangouts was simply a way to watch movies with your friends? You can already watch YouTube videos together, so movies is a natural extension. Heck, you can already do this with the Godfather. What happens if Google Hangouts becomes the new movie theater? +Vic Gundotra

A small masterpiece... simply hilarious

+Bradley Horowitz +Vic Gundotra Here's a point of potential concern for me:

Let's say I share an invite to a party, or something partially private to one circle. The people in that circle simply see that the post is limited, and don't see who else saw my plus. But they might notice by chance other people that I have in all my circles and assume that they have seen it as well.

I guess my point is that there should be some sort of way to say
'these are the people that can see the post that you are seeing.'

But that's a minuscule point compared to some of the stuff you're probably working on updating, so I'll let you do that more important stuff first....

Can Google please get heir software team for Mac together? Chrome needs some work, true, but I'm really talking about Picasa.

Seriously, someone please pay attention to that.

1) The first thing that needs to be done 2 years ago is to make the default minimize shortcut the default minimize shortcut, and not a shortcut to import. This displays a complete lack of understanding of Macs to begin with.

2) Update it for Lion. Put it on the App Store? kthanks.

Here's a draft that will be going up on the blog tomorrow. Any feedback?


Long before this post, many have argued that in fact the battle is not truly waged between Apple and Google, but truly Apple and Amazon, a dark horse in the race to the throne of the tech world.

Google, meaning however well, produces lackluster products (with a few exceptions granted). Apple produces arguably the most consumer-oriented products out there. Amazon is moving into place to compete.

But Amazon needs to be especially mindful of one, key thing. Software. Amazon Instant Video does a perfectly fine job of streaming video, but it has failed to placate its Mac users with an option to download video. Heck, the whole experience of purchasing more than one song on Amazon MP3 is less than ideal. Amazon needs to deliver on software if it wants to be a contender.

Amazon needs to buy doubleTwist. Imagine if it did. Amazon would be large enough to propel doubleTwist into the position oposite iTunes. An Amazon-backed doubleTwist would be strong enough to put up a fantastic fight against Apple and its prized iTunes.

But Amazon and doubleTwist could only pull this off if they truly integrated their products. DoubleTwist would have to be able to sync music between computers, storing all the music in the cloud, as Amazon has done, but in addition, it must enable easy download and streaming through the program. That goes ditto for TV shows and movies purchased, or for that matter, rented on Amazon Instant Video (streaming is nice, but I want to be able to watch offline and without buffering).

What else... Well, since Amazon has already rolled out an Android app store, and a Mac app store, integrate those as well, like Apple has done. Oh, and what the hey: throw in a Kindle reader.

Amazon: you can take on Apple in this one move. You can make the fight a fair one. Please, for the sake of all of the consumers out there, do this.
