I usually access Google+ through the app, but I'm curious how this new desktop layout feels.

I have to think that there is market research that pushed them in this direction. While I know they want to keep us happy that are here, but I do understand that they have to try to bring in new users somehow

Guys, this is taking it too far, is not even functional just cosmetic, if you can call it appealing. Control your powers of doing awesome shit people.

And here are even more images. http://motherboard.vice.com/read/biohackers-are-implanting-led-lights-under-their-skin
Inspired by bioluminescent organisms, the DIY biohackers at Grindhouse Wetware have unveiled their latest creation—a magnetically activated, LED-equipped silicone implant.

Um why? I've never wanted something imbedded in me. Tattoo ink excluded. It just seems like your opening yourself up for trouble.

Would you go through all the trouble? It does seem much more simple in one app though. Someone tell Justin.
If you want a single app that offers truly private calling and messaging on your Android phone, Signal might be worth a look.

Yeah, but I don't believe that will happen. I wonder what happens with broad scale implementation. Can it be supported etc.

So it's true, Google Music subscriptions turn into YouTube Red!

Yup, it's the same mentality with pirating that people use.

I already subscribe to Google Play Music and love it... this may be a no brainer for me
 
YouTube Red will banish ads — for $9.99 a month.

I wish the podcast was around to talk about this!
 
Yahoo thinks it can make your password a thing of the past.
The Internet giant is trying to get more people to use its email service. In the process it also wants to rid the world of passwords.

True on both counts. I know Intel is trying to do stuff as well with True Key and LastPass was just bought by someone.

This is one of the topics that saw some disagreement from the group in the pre- Alaina days. Justin admittedly doesn't care and Mark Ryan shares my love of the Grado headphones
It's not a trick question. Do you think sound quality enhances musical enjoyment?

Headphones for sure. I don't typically use speakers too often.

I am usually not a fan of gold colored phones but Nexus 6P Special Edition looks really nice.

Hey guys, the first 25 or so minutes of this podcast is really interesting. A good conversation about phone design with Scott Croyle, I think I spelled that right, he used to work for HTC and the design of those M7 and so fore. Now works at Nextbit. The rest of the podcast is more about the Nextbit phone, I didn't know about it until last podcast. 
Behold! It's episode #113 of my podcast (1 hour 10 min) with mega special guest Scott Croyle of Nextbit (and formerly HTC)... Join us for an in-depth chat about the Nextbit Robin and the general st...

They'll play with these for hours:
Programming is a valuable skill for kids of all ages to pick up, and when they learn by playing with their favorite characters and games it’s even more fun. Code.org has two new tutorials that will appeal to many kids based on Minecraft and Star Wars.

I wasn't exactly expecting 10/10 of these controllers but wow. Have any you got your hands on one.

Do you think maybe it's just because it's different from what we expect on a living room? http://www.engadget.com/2015/11/10/we-hate-valve-steam-controller-because-its-different/

Helpful article
 
I'm surprised how many many people haven't heard of CEC, so I did a little write-up and video. Please share this if you think I did a good job explaining it. Thank you.

HDMI-CEC is Awesome, especially with Google Chromecast!

Extremely expensive, but I need to know what is needed to get the full benefit of this gear.
 
The best stuff is never cheap, but even top-tier headphones sell for a tiny fraction of the cost of the world's best speakers.
For those who crave the very best, take your pick from the Audiophiliac headphone list.

Wow, it's really a bad time for Tech Fetish to be on hiatus. I am so very intrigued and confused by the new Chromecasts.

On a different note, that Surface Book really has me tingling for a Windows laptop... and that is weird.
Shop at the Google Store for Android phones and tablets, Chromebooks, Android Wear, Chromecast, Nest, plus a selection of accessories.

I have a Nexus Player... I finally unplugged it and put the Chromecast in because it didn't work as well. Not all apps worked with it as they did the Chromecast.
