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?

Surely this has to be something from an episode of the Simpsons?...

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:

Will MS Office make it on to the iPad next year? My thoughts on what it should look like if it does.

3D video... just what I have been missing!
Tyranny of the feature checklist. Posted November 8, 2011 By The Macalope. Ben Brooks on Consumer Reports smartphone picks: If only I had a phone that was completely shit, but allowed me to capture 3D...

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.

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!
Matt Lerner originally shared:
 
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.
