Vago Damitio8,732Creative Circle #5 of 11 or was it #4 Crap.Creative Circle 1 of 11I am so impressed and enthused looking at the MicroVictoryArmy Stream  that I'm going to do something radical. I"m going to share my other circles, invite the members to join MVA, and then I'm going to delete all those circles so I can give more attention here.  I will keep  one circle of people like the +Dalai Lama  and +Richard Branson  who I would love to have join MVA but I don't want to lose track of if they don't. And that's it.  The Micro Victory Army is Victorious in my Circles and if you join - so are you. https://plus.google.com/communities/100245247140773385767  #microvictory  for figuring out how to enjoy G+ and manage my circles better! I'm about to delete you (unless you are in MVA - it's not personal - I still love you)2013-01-12 23:35:21143000

Harshit Gupta0Hey all, try this long ago +Robert Scoble shared circle of techies....it's what can get you started here on g+2012-07-11 14:48:57243112
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 00:28:364881003

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. They are announcing new Cloud Foundry stuff this morning. So, you'll probably see some tech news from the folks in this circle.2012-04-11 16:01:035005137103
Armando Lioss9,370“Active Engagers Shared Circle” 2.0In this shared circle you will find some interesting people to add to your circles, all of these GPlussers currently are actively participating commenting on my posts or sharing them as well as other GPlussers’ posts, so you can be sure they are getting involved in the G+ community.If you do not wish to be included in my future shared circles, please let me know with a comment to this post. I will remove you from this and any future shared circle I create, but I will keep you in my G+ circles.Furthermore, with each version I try to include new active engagers that are looking to meet other GPlussers to interact with, but I understand the old users may not have as much interest to meet new users and won’t circle them back, so I will prefer including users that really want to interact with new users.For TIPS TO GET PEOPLE TO CIRCLE YOU you may want to check: https://plus.google.com/u/0/111635150542674847021/posts/Q6c3ikBhdT3Thank you for your help making Google Plus adventure and exhilarating one…#SharedCircle #CircleShare #ActiveUsers #Engagers #Commenters #TopCirclesP.S.

My wife bought a Chromebook at Best Buy on Black Friday and we're delighted with it, but we need a printing solution. Is there an inexpensive print server that supports Google Cloud Print? We don't want to dedicate a PC as a print server. The only cheap solution I've found so far is to build a print server using a Raspberry Pi:

This caught me by surprise. In my Google Now cards I see "listen for a TV show." Click and ... it listens for about one second and ... figures out that Elementary is on my TV. Here's the really spooky part: It worked even during a commercial. #googlenow   #lollipop

Is "Internet Speed Monitor Toolbar" a trojan? Trying to figure out how it got onto my 87-year-old mother's Acer Chromebook. I can't find it in the Chrome app store. Before she called me, she had already managed to get into a phone conversation with scammers trying to get her to pay $80 to "fix" her computer.

My 87-year-old mom's computer (running Ubuntu) was getting long in the tooth, so we bought her an Acer #Chromebook for Christmas. Virus-free, maintenance-free, right? Not quite. Today she called me: Somebody was wanting to fix her computer for $80. Apparently she had installed an "Internet Speed Monitor" toolbar, and got a popup that she thought was real, and before long she's on the phone with some scammer trying to get her to install Remote Desktop. And maybe they did, because they asked personal questions about a picture on her screen. Anyway, you can't be too careful, so I changed her password and deleted the toolbar extension. Do I need to powerwash?

It's been a long time since I used a manual-focus camera. Today I strapped a legacy 50mm Nikkor prime lens onto my Olympus and forced myself to pay attention to some things the computer usually handles for me. 50mm on a Micro Four Thirds camera is equivalent to 100mm, so there is some nice selective focus ("bokeh") when I open up the lens and use a fast shutter speed. Good practice.

Google News is just sad. It's getting overrun by plagiarist sites and political misinformation sites. Actual journalism -- discovery and reporting of something new -- isn't valued by the algorithm. Three days later, the plagiarists pop up in the stream with rewrites.

We have a G1 but I rarely use it, because my ZS5 is always in my pocket and has that killer zoom lens. The ZS5 has served me well, all over the world, but it's aging. Now I'm looking at the ZS40 and ZS50, noting the advances in low-light capabilities (a real weakness of my ZS5) and the viewfinder. I note that the year-old ZS40 has GPS and a higher pixel count than the new model, and currently is priced around $50 less on Amazon. Any comments as to the real-world differences? 

Oh, and here's a gator shot from a walk through my neighborhood today that I would never have been able to get without my travelzoom:

Lollipop has been a laggy hang monster on my Moto G (2014), sometimes not even able to answer or place a phone call, so I just did a factory reset/wipe. Next week when it gets done re-downloading all my apps I'll see if it helped. I had expected the Art runtime to improve performance, but it's been really awful.

Sad that Radio Shack is going under.

Not only did they play a key role in the personal computer revolution (TRS-80 Model I and Model II) and also create the first REALLY portable computer (Model 100), used by sports reporters everywhere ... they played a key role in MY first computer.

 I actually built an ANALOG computer for a science fair project (Grant School, Fairview Heights, Ill.) in the 1960s, and all the parts came from the hulking old Radio Shack store in downtown St. Louis. I didn't win the science fair. Bigger kids tore off the knobs.

It was better than an atomic wedgie.

So far, Lollipop (5.02) on my Moto G has been a disappointment. It hasn't delivered any particularly exciting benefits, and it has brought performance issues and apparently memory bugs.

After a few days, the phone began killing processes -- if, for example, I clicked a link in Twitter, it killed Twitter upon switching to Chrome, making the return path annoyingly slow.

Then it got worse: Chrome would stall and Android would pop up a dialog claiming Twitter wasn't responding (responding? It was supposed to be sleeping and Chrome was supposed to be responding.) Voice commands took longer and longer to process, eventually just stalling. Everything just ground to a crawl.

The final straw was not being able to place a phone call from the "speed dial" screen. Clicking my wife's image popped up a prompt to choose (mobile or Grand Central), but the prompt dialog... more »

The final straw was not being able to place a phone call from the "speed dial" screen. Clicking my wife's image popped up a prompt to choose (mobile or Grand Central), but the prompt dialog was unresponsive. Eventually I tried to reboot, which caused the phone to immediately place the call.

I did reboot, and that seems to have cleared up the problem for the time being. But this is the kind of crap I expect from Windows. Not good at all.___

Found this tip in a Chromebook group. I am a heavy user of multiple Chrome profiles (to keep work/home stuff separate). I hate the new interface, which requires extra clicks and is downright ugly. This restores the UI that went away a few weeks ago.

OK, I know this waiting is driving some of you nuts, so here's proof: Motorola is rolling out Lollipop 5.0.2 OTA to retail Moto G 2014 customers. I just got the upgrade on my phone (unlocked, Amazon). Here's a shot. I'm glad to have received 5.0.2 and not 5.0.0. The purpose of the slow rollout is to discover and fix bugs before getting them widely distributed. After the download, the update takes 20-30 minutes, as all your apps will be recompiled to use the Art virtual machine instead of Dalvik. After that, it wants to update Google Play Services again, and will take a few minutes to stabilize. Then you're off and running.

Is there a way to control the order in which Thunderbird recommends/autocompletes email addresses? T-bird used to keep track of frequency, or recent usage, or something like that. Since the latest update, I've been accidentally sending emails to the wrong people, home addresses ... I had to disable my personal address book entirely, so now I'm stuck with the LDAP server and its idiosyncrasies.

After avoiding it as long as I possibly could, I finally upgraded my laptop to run Ubuntu 14.04LTS. I don't like Unity, but I can tolerate it if I an find a way to make it STOP opening windows in full mode -- making the window bar disappear so I can't move it around and get to other apps (or other Chrome windows). Is there some way to make the "full" go away, forever?

Previously I posted about needing a printer solution (and not wanting to dispose of my current printers).

I have successfully built a Google Cloud Print server and I'm able to print from a Chromebook to a non-cloud-friendly HP OfficeJet 2620. Here are the details:

1. Buy a PogoPlug storage server. I ordered one for under $6 and got a phone shell instead (inept Amazon seller), so I bought a better unit for $19. This is a tiny Linux appliance with multiple USB and an Ethernet port.

2. Buy a $10 SanDisk Cruzer 8gb USB stick to serve as a "hard drive" for the PogoPlug. I'm now up to $30, if you're counting.

3. Installed Debian Linux on the PogoPlug using Qui Hong's excellent tutorial here: http://blog.qnology.com/2014/07/hacking-pogoplug-v4-series-4-and-mobile.html This basically involves installing a replacement bootloader on the Pogo Plug,... more »

3. Installed Debian Linux on the PogoPlug using Qui Hong's excellent tutorial here: http://blog.qnology.com/2014/07/hacking-pogoplug-v4-series-4-and-mobile.html This basically involves installing a replacement bootloader on the Pogo Plug, and installing a basic Debian system on the USB stick. Reboot, and you have a "real" system.

4. Installed CUPS, which is the printer system used by Linux and Mac, along with HP's printer driver package.

5. Discovered HP's package is outdated and doesn't support my printer. Cursed HP, then downloaded HP's tools to completely rebuild the driver system, which required a complete C/C++ development kit on the PogoPlug. This was easier than it sounds, but took quite awhile to download and recompile everything. 

6. Installed some Python tools and cloudprint daemon, following the excellent tutorial by Dennis Schutt: http://dev.shyd.de/2012/01/remote-printing-debian-google-cloud-print/

There were lots of details to chase down to pull this off -- upgrades, missing Debian packages, adding swap space, etc.,, so I would not recommend it for anyone who isn't comfortable hacking around in Linux without a GUI. But it does work, unlike our "cloud print ready" Samsung laser printer that doesn't. ___
