It seems to have been an authentication issue with the new application. I saw issues on my android and not the iPad. Login, posting, comments notifications and viewing new comments on others posts. Maybe lasted 2 hours. Accessing #Google+ from a browser on any platform worked ok.

I just had to post this, I replied to a post concerning quotes and Internet.

http://listverse.com/2007/12/19/top-25-quotes-of-harry-truman/

A very remarkable president, basically he stumbled into the job, very underrated man. He made some important, long lasting decisions that basically shaped the free world for over 50 years.

I strongly recommend this book

Conflict and Crisis Harry Truman 1945-1948.

+Chris Lichowicz great comment.
A lot of people may not like him for using the A bomb twice and I can understand that. No knew if it would even work or if the atmosphere of the earth would burn up if it was used. Heck, he didn't even know it existed until after FDR died. He stuggled making that decision the rest of his life. He even wanted to demonstrat the bomb (a test) for Japan without using it on civilians.

There's apparently a way to peek at someone's private photos simply by reporting their profile image as objectionable. Read this blog post by Lance Whitney on Digital Media.

Mario, the word needs to spread outside of the technical community.

Hit the main stream in a way that consumers understand what this means to them personally.

We are talking about personal information stolen from at least 140 million users without their knowledge or consent.

Even (which I doubt) if the data never left their phone. Personal information has to be the least protected asset uninformed people have.

There is no way that this collected data is used for true system diagnostics. I always love these unambiguous words like "user experience" Follow the money... being able to uniquely identify someone from this and other collected data is the goal.

The commerce of this century is user identity and ways to exploit the data.

I truly can not personally blame CarrierIQ for this, they are just trying to be better then the next guy with their product.

They were caught and this should be the RED FLAG to enhance consumer awareness of common practice and business models.

Hopefully, Laws will catch up with technology and be enforced to protect PII information universally.

Thank you for this blog and keep them coming. I am also trying to spread the word :-)

India orders Net firms to censor themselves

Some of the world's top websites will have to purge themselves of all content that is offensive to Indians by February 6. The companies must update their progress on the effort within two weeks, a court in New Delhi ordered on Saturday, the reports say. The demand is the Indian government’s latest attempt to monitor and control electronic information.

Imagine a job like, submarine defense... With a wooden mallet rowing up to a submarine and striking the periscope with it.

I just learned it today, but it would make a great Monty python skit, right next to the fish dance.
