Is Google under the impression that their Google+ app for iPhone actually works? Let me disabuse you. Despite the checkbox settings, the app never remembers me the next day. Then, every time I try to log in - despite the "remember me for 30 days" checkbox - the app asks for my authenticator code. When I switch out of the app to open Authenticator to get the code and return to Google+, it makes me log in again!!! Guess what, morons, the codes don't last long enough to get through your login and code entry ceremony. Utter fail.

G+ has gotten more interesting since I started following +Robert Scoble. Ok, a little spammy, but in a good way.

There are a few people like that, but the nice thing about G+ (unlike Twitter, for example) is that you can stream just the circle you like, and filter out the spammier contributors when you want.

The only trouble with Ted's burgers is you have to eat them twice a day for three days.

My Magic Mouse chews through batteries so fast I feel like I'm delivering electricity by sneakernet.

How do you specify which people you want to see in your stream (except one at a time, which reverts the next time you come back)?

Put them in different circles, and then you can tell which circle(s) you want to see

Yet another brainless G+ admin story. The policy merely sucks; its application is random and capricious. (The traffic from a Hacker News link may have taken the website down. Keep trying; it's worth reading.)

But come to think of it, Public could mean anything Google+ decides it means. I once posted a criticism of Trumer Pils (skunky taste) on Facebook and got an immediate comment from the beer company. I'll post this to Public and see what happens. :)

They said (from memory): "No skunks here."

Yah... I think they're opening up invites in batches. Agree with you though, wish they'd just open the floodgates.
