Kyle Beck66So, I know a lot of my friends who have joined +Google+ wonder "What's the point? I have a Facebook." Well that comparison was flawed from the beginning, although many people made it while trying to describe G+. There are similarities, but one of my favorite features in G+ has been the ability to share Circles with others. In fact I'm not sure I would see the point if I hadn't been shared this very circle by +Robert Scoble (IIRC) early on in my G+ membership. It has proven an invaluable source of up-to-the-minute Tech News over the past year and really showed me how G+ is very different from FB.See, when you visit FB the information you receive is solely from your family and real-life acquaintances. This can be great for keeping up with people you don't see regularly, etc., but it is very hard to reach out to new people who share your interests through FB. Not so on G+. You can create and share groups of friends and pages (Circles) to organize your social interests. In effect, this creates dynamic communities where you can choose who you interact with.Anyways, I hope you will consider adding this Circle, packed full of Tech Enthusiasts. If you don't really use G+ or wonder what the point is, that goes double for you!2012-06-30 00:28:364881003CC G+

Robert Scoble1,146,151Here are 500 of my favorite Tech Journalists, bloggers, and pundits. I'm sharing this since I am seeing lots of new people coming over and I'm sure they are looking for some great people to circle here. Unfortunately I can't share everyone that I have in this circle (I have 575 in this circle on my screen, but Google+ only lets me share 500 with you). Lots of interesting tech bloggers and journalists here. Hope you enjoy. This is the circle that starts my morning every day.Speaking of Tech News, I'm off to +VMware.

Last month, when Aereo launched in Houston, I reviewed the controversial streaming TV service after using it for a couple of weeks in its beta period. I liked it a lot, and considered it a good alternative for those wishing to drop cable TV but still have the benefits of being able to record local broadcast channels.

I’ve been using Aereo regularly since then, and while I still like it, I’m starting to be more aware of its shortcomings. Aereo is still very much a work in progress, but if you’re going to rely on it, you’ll have to lower some of your expectations.

T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon all have new programs to let you upgrade your smartphone faster. They involve buying phones on installment plans, and skipping a contract for service plans. But AT&T and Verizon aren't dropping their plan rates for those with non-subsidized phones, which means you're paying the same inflated voice/date prices as those with contracts and hardware subsidies. T-Mobile restructured its pricing to do away with subsidies. 

I'd hope no one would fall for the game AT&T and Verizon are playing, but I'm afraid some will.

When I got my iPhone 5 back in September, I hustled to get a case on it ASAP. I wound up choosing a clear silicone one from Rocketfish, Best Buy's house brand. I loved its protective minimalism, but worried it, like most clear silicone products, would yellow.

It yellowed all right - and kept going, all the way to light, sickly greenish black. Yuck.

So, over the weekend, I replaced it.

Oh, and I corrected the link in the previous item, so go back and read that one, too. I apologize for my doofusness.

I've been pretty happy going cable-TV-free . . . until last night's Rockets vs. Thunder playoff game. But is the Rockets' playoff run worth going back to paying $1600 a year?

Also, very cool: Using Google Now on iOS to keep up with the game while I was doing my Technology Bytes radio show.

So Google has changed how it tracks versions of Android. Instead of using device check-ins to Google servers, it now tracks deliberate visits to the Play Store. Does this make the numbers less valid?

And a question for Android device owners: How often do you visit the Play Store each month, either to download something new or update an app?

I'm on the verge of giving up my cable TV service and getting all my TV content via the Internet. It may be a bit of a hassle cobbling everything together, but it will be worth it: well under $300 a year vs. more than $1,600 a year.

Office users were pretty upset when Microsoft changed the licensing so the software couldn't be transfered to a new PC. Now, the company has reversed itself.

I hear several times a year from people who've been hit with this scam: someone calls on the phone to warn you that your PC is infected. They want money to clean it up. 

Here's a peek inside such a scam, via Fred Langa at Windows Secrets.

I really like Microsoft's Surface Pro, so long as I'm using it as a notebook PC. As a tablet? Not so much . . .

Apple CEO Tim Cook, in a detailed intervew with Bloomberg Businessweek, describes a former workplace where employees couldn't be bothered to check out new products set up in building lobbies. Is he describing his previous employer, Houston's Compaq Computer Corp.?

When folks ask me about giving a smartphone as a gift, I usually have one-word advice: Don't. 

But if you must, here's what you need to think about.

The tech-savvy among us know better than to discard a cell phone without first wiping it clean. The less savvy? Their personal information ends up in a book.

Oh, and if you live in the Houston suburb of Sugar Land and recently discarded a Razr flip phone? You may want to read this . . .

Since I wrote back in September that I'd decided to stick with iPhone and AT&T (was considering a switch to Android & Verizon), a LOT of people have asked if I've been happy with those decisions. For the most part, yes.

But there are some caveats.

If you've been one of Apple's newest stores, such as the one in Highland Village here in Houston, you know that they can be unbearably LOUD. There's evidence the company may be considering changes to fix that.

Microsoft's Surface tablet makes a great first impression, but as you use it, its flaws become more clear.

I was tempted to say "...it's all downhill from there", but that's a little harsh. This is a good first step for Microsoft, but I'd advise waiting for version 2.0, or waiting for the Windows 8 Pro version, due in a few months.

I wanted to go to a Toyota dealer, but Apple's Map app sent me to a uniform and apparel business instead.

Yelp's partly to blame.

Here's my first-looks review of the iPhone 5. The double speed, bigger screen and LTE support make this a great smartphone experience.

And seriously, if you're a smartphone user - regardless of platform - you want LTE. Trust me on this.

Been obsessively checking the order status page on that iPhone 5 you pre-ordered on Friday, but not seeing the status change? Your Beloved may have shipped anyway. 

Here's how to check.

I finally decided which carrier to go with just a few hours before I ordered the iPhone 5 ... but it wasn't actually the carrier I WANTED to pick.

Since late July, I've been agonizing about whether to switch from an iPhone to an Android device, probably a Galaxy S III. On Wednesday, I made up my mind. Agony over.

AT&T customers in Houston are reporting serious connection issues with the carrier's LTE network during workday hours. It seems to be fine late at night and early in the morning, but about when folks start heading to work, the network becomes almost unusable. 

Is anyone seeing this pattern in other cities with AT&T LTE?

An update: AT&T says this issue has been resolved in Houston. How 'bout, Houston AT&T LTE customers? Everything aces?

If you're an Android user and you're not outraged over Google's Motorola not putting Jelly Bean on its new, otherwise state-of-the-art Razr HD phones, you should be.
