The modern day equivalent of the "if a tree falls in the forest with nobody to hear, does it still make a sound?" question:

Do animated GIFs on Google+ carry on animating once they scroll out of sight?

Week after next is fine - Google docs may be easiest as it is a bit more collaborative. Do you want to send me a link when you have done your part?

Not my Facebook page obviously... that is boringly lacking in anything which would upset Father Christmas!

It's official! Due to the Lerner Laws and Regulations Concerning Christmas and Other Holiday Media, I haven't been able to post anything Christmas-y at all. Until now. Thought I would share since it appears an overwhelming majority of us are anti Faceybooks and #LordZuckerbeast.

Pretty close to what I do on a good day - save that I don't use e-mail to manage it, but you've got me thinking about that now, thanks :)

Kindle Fire... small Android tab with no microphone, camera or native email client? Guessing they will sell ok at £250 and with Amazon's backing, but it's not going to be replacing my iPad in a hurry.

Kindle Touch looks interesting though...
Amazon.com today unveiled its Kindle Fire tablet, as well as a new thinner and lighter touchscreen Kindle called the Touch and a cheaper, $79 Kindle.

Brilliant... I should send more telegrams!

After discovering my senator, Dianne Feinstein, had no Twitter account, I sought a more low-tech to communicate my displeasure over her PIPA support. Wow, no Facebook or Google+ account, either.

Adding funny text to photos

Adding a few words can turn a silly photo into a ROFL, or draw attention to what you find most interesting. Today we're rolling out a feature that makes it easier to add big, bold text on top of your photos.

To try it out, drop a photo into the sharebox on Google+, then click the "Add text" button underneath the photo. Type in something funny, then share and enjoy.

This feature will be rolling out over the next few days -- I hope you enjoy it! :) We'll be keeping our eyes on the stream for the funniest examples, so have fun! #funwithphotos #googleplusupdate

We made a few to get you started:
