I can't believe that google hangout effects doesn't have a Borg Effect. I'm fed up with meetings being chaired by a pirate or a man with a snorkel. Lets have a borg in command.

One reason I don't use g+ much is that the android app is very hard to read, text too big, images behind text, cluttered with profile images and, well, clutter. Please make it simpler for me to scroll through and browse stuff.

Mike, this is a screen shot from the g+ on "play" https://lh5.ggpht.com/H3elx1Lfmjjdc31A8TCBMtWdNsh29LX1hIUDuh6wAbMrY5K0OoLM8qwrPtl9tv90F4i5

and this is a screenshot of facebook app

I find the g+ one very hard to read, with white text against images, particularly when I'm outside, and when the images are slow to load, which is most times I'm not on wifi.
The font size can;t be reduced, so I can't get more on the screen than about one and a half updates, and I don;t really need to see such big bars with avatars and my friends names on.

I'm not bothered, I just tend to avoid it, but that means I'm not using g+.
