At least there's one carrier that gets it.  Thanks +T-Mobile! 

No Corporate Logo, No Bloatware, no crap you don't want on the #Nexus6 from +T-Mobile​:

That's Un-carrier - listening to our customers and giving them what they want, not sticking a stupid corporate logo and a bunch of crap software I know you guys don't want on your #Nexus device.

We know you guys buy a #Nexus6 to avoid that kind of thing!

Google did want to highlight the Virtual Preload (VPL) capabilities on Lollipop, so we made MyAccount available if you want it... But you can totally delete it. That's what we do.

Hope you like what we've chosen to do there (or more importantly, what we've chosen not to do).

I'm with +Dane Jasper.  This is a great idea.  Let's have real competition with our already existing infrastructure.

The article does a bad job of explaining unbundling, but it basically means you can choose a different company that your phone (or perhaps even cable) company and use the same wires that already come into your home.  This would allow new entrants to offer fiber internet over existing infrastructure, and compete on price and speed.  

Love +Sonic.net!

The time I emailed Steve Jobs


In 2010, I wrote an email to Steve Jobs about my feelings on the changing nature of Apple's products.  He never responded.  I came across it today when searching for something, and thought I'd post it here.  I have no idea if he ever read it.  I stand by most of my criticisms, and still hope Apple will reverse course on the iOS-ification of their product portfolio.  I wish I had spent a little more time editing this down, as I read it, but that's true of most things you read years later, I suppose.

I really wish he was still around.

Emailed 6/30/10: 

Mr. Jobs,


I have been a loyal Apple customer/evangelist since I first got a Performa 575 (IMO, the first iMac) with System 7 in high school (1995ish?).  I currently have 2 Macs at home and both my wife and I use Macs at work.  I even havea Newto... more »

I really wish he was still around.

Emailed 6/30/10: 

Mr. Jobs,


I have been a loyal Apple customer/evangelist since I first got a Performa 575 (IMO, the first iMac) with System 7 in high school (1995ish?).  I currently have 2 Macs at home and both my wife and I use Macs at work.  I even have a Newton MessagePad 110.  My wife and I love our Macs, and would never use that other pay OS :).  I write this letter to let you know that as a long time Mac user, I am feeling pushed away by the company, and am disturbed by the direction Apple has taken over the past couple years.

For as long as I can remember, Apple was a small, disruptive company, friendly to hackers and geeks.  Over the past few years, that Apple has been replaced by a deeply walled, closed company.  Some examples of this are: the iPhone/iPad OS, iAd, the app store ecosystem, etc.  Not being able to use Google Voice on the iPhone, for instance, is why I don't own an iPhone, and one reason why I can't recommend it to others.  Features and apps shouldn't have to be approved by Apple; users should decide if they are useful to them or not (malware/viruses obviously excluded).  In addition to this, my wife has had 3 iPod classics replaced in the past year due to hardware (drive) failures, and our 2 year old iMac 24" is now failing.  The quality of Apple hardware seems to have changed for the worse, and it saddens me.  I don't mind paying a premium for quality hardware, but it needs to perform and it needs to last.  My Newton, on the other hand, is still ticking somehow.

Mr. Jobs, I admire you deeply, and I write this letter only to voice my feelings as a longtime Apple user and fan.  I hope that Apple will focus more of its efforts on openness, standards, and quality, and allow its geek base to tinker, learn, and create with Apple's products even in ways they were never intended.  I simply ask that you consider the loyal, savvy users like myself when drafting new policies and strategies.  Linux doesn't have to be the only refuge of the geek.  I want Apple to be the model of a successful open company, and I want to continue to support an innovative, and disruptive company.  


Open wins.



Cheers,

Matt Ruhstaller___

Very exciting news!  I'm thrilled to work with the team and make Play Music even more awesome!

Exciting news today — we’re thrilled to welcome +Songza to Google. They’ve built a great service which uses contextual expert-curated playlists to give you the right music at the right time. We aren't planning any immediate changes to Songza, so it will continue to work like usual for existing users. Over the coming months, we’ll explore ways to bring what you love about Songza to Google Play Music. We'll also look for opportunities to bring their great work to the music experience on YouTube and other Google products. In the meantime, check out their service on #Android (http://goo.gl/urYGx6) or iOS (http://goo.gl/c0egja) to find a playlist for any mood you’re in — whether you’re feeling a little mellow or a lot funky.___Very exciting news!  I'm thrilled to work with the team and make Play Music even more awesome!

Woo!

Music was made to be loved. We just made loving it easier. With Google Play Music for Chrome, you can now keep all the music you love in the cloud so that you always have it. To add new music, enable the “Google Play Music for Chrome” lab at play.google.com/music/listen#/labs. Then simply drag and drop songs into your Google Play Music library. If you have a lot of music in iTunes or if you want new music to be added automatically, you can configure this by clicking “Add Music” at the top right of play.google.com/music. 

But, wait, there’s more! This new lab has extra goodies. You can now open a handy mini-player by clicking the arrow in the bottom right corner of our web app so you can see what’s playing or skip songs from any tab. Plus, download songs, albums and playlists directly from the web. Let us know what you think! 

We built this lab using Chrome Apps and Native Client technology, developers can learn more at developer.chrome.com/apps/about_apps and developer.chrome.com/native-client. Uploads, downloads and the mini player are just the start, and we are excited to push the boundaries of what’s possible on the web.___Woo!

A special service of CircleCount.com is the following button.

The button shows the number of followers you have directly in a small button. You can add this button to your website, like the +1-Button of Google or the Like-Button of Facebook.






You can add this button directly in your website. For more information about the CircleCount Buttons and the description how to add them to another page click here.
