Johnny Johnsen5,985#F1Johnny  Circle :I have had some Formula 1 circles this season.Some from them from the one and only +Jens Graikowski  , some from others and some i have made myself.The things that matters for me is that the person in this circle is above average interested in Formula 1. If you do not get many (sometimes to much) post about Formula 1, you are probably in my "Motorsport " circle or or another one :)I want the person in this circle to feel that he or she belong there.If you want to be there but isn`t. Notify me !If you are in there and think this is to much Johnny !!!!! Notify me !  :-)Now Googla is on fire with "Communities" and this is great news for usFormula 1 fans. Now we can move in to the #F1 #Communities and just chat about Formula 1 all winter :-)Here are the links to the one i`m in :  http://bit.ly/VEMMJhhttp://bit.ly/TRWt1PI will also post and share my Formula 1 circle and my Motorsport circle.I hope that Formula 1 2013 season will be THE season for F1 followers on Google Plus. I think communities and the fact that it is so many more members here at the start of the season will make this to a great team.Google Plus will crush FB and be a good addition to Twitter in 2013 season :-)98,5 days left to the start ;)PS: If there is a lot of spelling mistakes, the reason is that Google Translate is not at work today :-)Have a great wintertime, and a fantastic Christmas.Johnny2012-12-08 17:42:33302805
Jens „Google Plus Yoda“ Graikowski10,635Last share of the F1 circle (Part one) ...As I have completely changed my circle system and am working exclusively with my "Interaction Ladder" (http://bit.ly/VfSrjs) for incoming and my "Targeted Circles" (http://bit.ly/XSXBoR) for outgoing traffic I have decided to delete even my last themed circle, the #FormulaOne  circle.I believe that creating a #Formula1  community via a circle is impractical and cumbersome. A #GooglePlusPage  is better suited for this endeavour, so if you want to be part of a large #F1 community I recommend you try some of the pages around, like +F1 Circle (the page that belongs to this circle) or +Formula 1 Fans. I will share this circle in two parts (One of the reason that it is cumbersome. You can't share circles larger than 500) so it doesn't get lost for those who are still interested in it. I will delete it from my circles afterwards.This is part one with F1 aficionados from A to L. The M to Z part will follow in a second.Don't get me wrong! I'll keep on posting about the F1 and I'll do so publicly. You can still all read my Formula 1 posts. If you'd like to be notified of them I'll gladly add you to my Formula 1 targeted circle. Just +1 the first comment underneath this post!I hope we'll all enjoy the last race of the season 2012 and am looking forward to see you all again in 2013.And now go and share this circle all over the place, will ya!Greez,+Jens Graikowski ***************************************************************** #jgformula12012-11-22 23:02:21367418

Max Huijgen27,573Will Red Bull be allowed to race this afternoon? FIA finds fault with their engine mapping suggesting that Red Bull uses illegal torque maps. Technical delegate Jo Bauer put forward his findings after Saturday's qualifying session, claiming that both cars are in breach of the regulations.The effect of the strange looking torque maps is that maximum power is not delivered in the mid RPM ranges suggesting that the exhaust flow is used to influence the aerodynamics. Strictly forbidden after last years 'exhaust-blown diffuser' exploit of the rules. Sanctions could range from grid penalties to exclusion of this race!find below the first F1 circle; I will share the second one in a minute2012-07-22 10:39:5350021216

Jens „Google Plus Yoda“ Graikowski4,830the SUPER F1 CIRCLE (first installment) ...here it finally is! ... the collective effort of hundreds of F1 buffs all over the world ... the SUPER F1 CIRCLE! ...this circle started some time ago with three guys roaming G+ on the search for #formula1 fans ... +Brian Titus +Max Huijgen and my humble self put everybody who posted #F1 posts or commented on them in a circle and this circle has been circulating (you see what i did there, don't you? ... circle? ... circulating? ... no? ... well, never mind!) G+ for weeks and months now ... now we went one step further ... in one of my last posts i asked all members of the circle to send me their's, since it was probable that they had some #foreveralone aficionados in their private F1 circle that weren't yet in ours ... and there were! ... our SUPER F1 CIRCLE has grown to impressive 593 members! ... since i can only share 500 in a circle, this is the first installment ...the next installment will follow in a second, but there might be a problem ... since google in its infinite wisdom decided to make every movement in your circles a circle addition i can't split the circle properly ... i tried to and because i had moved some of the F1 buffs around already, my circle page told me that i had exceeded my limit to add people to my circles ... i had only added about 20 but since i moved hundreds from one circle to another i was told off ... well, that is the subject for another post ...anyway, i'll share the second installment in a sec, but there might be some doubles ... that doesn't matter though if you just add the second circle to the first ... doubles will automatically ignored then ...if you still have your ow F1 circle, send it to me (share it with just me) ... i will add to the next update then ... like this we should be able to collect the majority of the F1 buffs in one all encompassing circle ... thx for your collaboration! ...please don't forget to share this post publicly! ... we want to reach every F1 fan out there and we can only do that with your help! ... and don't forget, we are going to start our formula 1 race hangout at around 6pm GMT! ... you better reserve yourself a spot ... read more here http://bit.ly/Lg58Xj ! ...greez,+Jens Graikowski ...************************************************************************permalink to this post: http://bit.ly/KJbun4 ... #jgformula1  if you'd like to be notified about these kinds of posts, please read http://bit.ly/JPJxor ... if, on the other hand you are already receiving these notifications and would rather not anymore, please let me know in a PM (no questions asked) ...2012-06-10 15:52:2850116412

Jens „Google Plus Yoda“ Graikowski3,652newest version of our #F1 circle ...updated on the saturday, the 14th of april 2012» honey, they're here!+Max Huijgen has finally shared his eagerly anticipated #formulaone circle ... just in time for the race weekend in china ... i added it to our already existing circle and we gained a whopping 96 new members! ... thx to his excellent work our circle is now 344 #formula1 buffs strong! ... that's impressive, though there must be more out there ... please share this circle publicly, so we can find them all! ... if you are reading this and are not yet included in the circle, but would like to be, give me a shout in the comments! ...» who are we?originally this circle was curated by +Brian Titus (with a bit of a helping hand by myself) to bring all the F1 fans at #googleplus together and discuss our favorite subject ... we have our own +page too, called +F1 Circle ... don't forget to add it! ... apart from discussing the news around the formula 1 circus we'd like to do more though ... i for example will invite the whole circle to a hangout at every #race (if i can't or won't watch a race, like bahrain, we'll find somebody else who starts the hangout) ... like this, we can watch the #grandprix together (it's always nicer in good company) ... if you have some other great ideas about activities, that could make our little circle more interesting, let me or +Brian Titus or +Max Huijgen know! ...and now, let's all have a great time together! ...greez,+Jens Graikowski ...****************************************************************************** #jgformula12012-04-14 18:59:363441007
Max Huijgen20,565Will Rob Smedley start driving the Ferrari himself? An F1 circle of fans!A few weeks ago I started collecting people who are real fans of F1. Now crowd sourcing has the disadvantage that there are always people who want to be in a circle no matter the subject. I have taken my time to go through comments and posts all over G+ and came up with the following hard core fans. Now I´m pretty sure there must be much more and I will gladly add you if you have a clue about the post titlle :)Now, there is already a +F1 Circle and +Jens Graikowski and +Brian Titus have been curating this. Last year +Kol Tregaskes and I made the same effort. The goal is of course to get to one circle to rule them all ;)It makes no sense at all to have fragmented circles so I checked mine against the existing ones and found 98 new names compared to the latest shard one, so that´s good news.Before I merge I want to be sure we have as many people who really love #F1 as possible and avoid taking on board too many people who just want to be in. If you already have the latest circle you can just add this one to it to win the 98 new ones. What I hope for however is that we will find even more F1 fans thanks to this post and that I can share an even larger one next time. So if you´re in it and feel others are forgotten please mention them. Oh, and if you don´t want to be notified just say so, and I make sure someone else can be on the selected list for notifications.2012-04-14 14:56:1417056622
Jens „Google Plus Yoda“ Graikowski3,553newest version of our #F1 circle ...if you are a #formula1 buff, this might interest you ... a circle of birds-of-a-feather ... these are either people whom i've found all over G+ commenting and posting about the #formulaone , or peeps who specifically asked to be added to the circle ... being in this circle is fun! ... if you are interested in formula one you'll find fellow fans here ... there are always interesting, sometimes even heated, discussions going on ... we organise hangouts at #race weekends, to watch the #grandprix together ... if you'd like to be added, you can either add yourself and share the circle on, or just let me know in a comment at this, the original post, and i'll add you to the next up date (we do them regularly) ... also if you'd like to be taken out of the circle, please let know ...we are 230 strong now, but this can not be every F1 fan on G+, so please help us find the rest! ... add your own F1 followers, but don't share this circle only with your formula 1 peeps ... please share it publicly, so we can reach every living soul here on G+ (and of course all the ghosts too) ... #jgformula12012-04-05 16:40:4423017137

Hangouts: now smarter, faster, and a lot more fun

If you’re like me, you want to stay connected with friends and family without technology getting in the way. Hangouts lets you focus on the people you love talking to, so your conversations feel as in-the-moment and natural as they do in real life.

Today we’re updating the Hangouts app for Android to make it easier to express yourself, and have more fun along the way:
    - Like the saying goes, a sticker is worth a thousand words. From penguins to pirates, koalas to cats, 16 new sticker packs (and more to come!) have tons of ways to say what’s on your mind.
    - Give your video calls some extra flair with video filters including sepia, vignette, black & white, and more. Just swipe during a video call to try these new styles. 

We’re also making it easier to start conversations with friends and family:
    - Confirm your phone number so your friends who already have your digits can more easily find and message you in Hangouts.
    - Know when your friends are ready to chat right now with “last seen” timestamps, so you never have to type, “You there?”

Hangouts is also introducing the start of something new -- smart suggestions right in your conversations:
    - When you’re trying to meet up with friends in real life and someone asks, “Where are you?”, Hangouts can now understand what you need and offer to help.  You’ll see a one-tap option to share your location right in the conversation, without you needing to hunt around in a map, drop a pin and send your position. 

Try all the new features by updating the Hangouts app on your Android device  (http://goo.gl/v7FTL - rolling out to the Play Store over the next few hours). Note that “last seen” timestamps will roll out in waves over the next few weeks, so you may not see this feature for all your contacts right away. Today’s updates will also be available on the Hangouts iOS app soon. 

P.S. We’ve added a few other surprises to this Hangouts update, but we’ll let you find them on your own. Woot!___This looks promising.

Hope it will roll out to my devices sooner rather than later!

Stephen Hawking, one of the most brilliant minds of our time, shares his thoughts on A.I. evolution and the possible dangers, as self-aware system, could pose to human beings.

As a technology and science enthusiast, I have to admit that I am looking forward to the day when true A.I. will exist within our world.

Although I tend to think that such breakthroughs may surface past our era, the time will most likely come, that a machine will become self aware. It could be through neural networks, quantum computing, or even something different altogether. 

That said, I too agree that it would be of high importance to weight all the aspects of such a new "life-form" and the possibilities it would bring on the table.

Going out on a witch hunt is definitely not the solution, but dashing forward blindly, could prove wrong, or even dangerous and I can definitely see the point Hawking is trying to make here.

A.I. is an inevitable future. I can only hope it will be a good one.___

So, +DNews​ seems to be fun and interesting. They have a +YouTube​ channel where they make a short clip, touching on either tech or science stuff and trying to explain it.

And they have this +Google+​ account. Where they post regularly. And they always have the comments disabled. All of them. That is their policy. Period.

Kind of a weird and alienating way to reach and connect with your audience, don't you think so +DNews​ ????

So it looks like that Google decided, that instead of improving the hardware, they could improve the software to take better pictures with android devices.


From what I see on the samples, it looks like they did a pretty good job.

PS this is not your typical bracketed HDR

Using computational photography to take better pictures

As anybody who has tried to use a smartphone to photograph a dimly lit scene knows, the resulting pictures are often blurry or noisy. Equally frustrating are scenes where there is a large range of brightness levels, such as a family photo backlit by a bright sky; photographs will either come out with an overexposed sky (turning it white) or an underexposed family (turning them into silhouettes).

HDR+ is a feature in the Google Camera app for Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 that uses computational photography to help you take better pictures in these common situations. Learn how on the Research blog, linked below.___So it looks like that Google decided, that instead of improving the hardware, they could improve the software to take better pictures with android devices.

Fun stuff :-p

Hello ghosts and ghouls — Halloween is coming up and we can’t wait to get our costumes on and put up the cobwebs to prepare for tricks and treats. We’ve got something to help you celebrate with Google+ Photos. Here’s how to join in on the fun:

1) Simply go to photos.google.com
2) Choose your look from Spooky or Fun  
3) Pick a photo of yourself and up to four of your friends that you want to #Halloweenify… or simply pick any photo you’d like to transform with a Halloween theme. 

Want a different look? Try again or with another photo!

If you have an Android device, you can easily get a spooky or fun look by going to your photos view in the app and by clicking the star button in the top right corner. From there, follow the instructions and you’ll get your very own Halloween makeover. 

Share with your friends on Google+ or download the photo and share it anywhere. Or really get into the Halloween spirit and make it into your profile pic. 

Check out other examples at https://plus.google.com/explore/halloweenify or get started at g.co/halloweenify. Currently only available in selected languages. http://goo.gl/QwTfKG

Happy Halloween! ___Fun stuff :-p

Why Copyblogger Is Killing Its Facebook Page

"The Copyblogger Google+ community’s statistics blow Facebook away by miles. Twitter is an amazing platform at both the brand level and for many of the individuals in the company (plus, you retweet posts like nobody’s business).

And we’re grateful.

Which is why Copyblogger is going to continue putting its energy into those outlets and the Copyblogger membership communities (free and paid)..."

Ψάχνοντας πληροφορίες για τα κουτιά πίτσας και την ανακύκλωση τους, βρήκα αυτό:

"Ερώτηση
Κουτιά από πίτσα, συσκευασίες έτοιμου φαγητού, ανακυκλώνονται;

Απάντηση
Τα κουτιά της πίτσας είναι από χαρτόνι, οπότε μπορεί να σκεφτεί κανείς ότι είναι ανακυκλώσιμα. Οταν τα πετάμε όμως είναι γεμάτα λάδια και λίπη. Μάλιστα, όσο κι αν προσπαθήσουμε να τα καθαρίσουμε, αυτό δεν γίνεται ολοκληρωτικά, καθώς πάντα μένουν υπολείμματα, ενώ και το ίδιο το χαρτόνι μοιάζει να έχει «ποτίσει». Επομένως,όχι μόνο δεν ανακυκλώνονται, αλλά δημιουργούν πρόβλημα στη διαδικασία διαχωρισμού (διαμορφώνεται μια λερωμένη μάζα). Το ίδιο κάνουμε και τις συσκευασίες έτοιμου φαγητού.

Καλό είναι οι συσκευασίες να είναι καθαρές από υπολλέιμματα γιατι υπάρχει ο κίνδυνος κάτι να τρέξει και να λερώσει και τα υπόλοιπα υλικά στον κάδο."

I do not always agree with +Mike Elgan 

But when I do, it's about +Google+  ;)

Why Google+ is the place for passions

The single biggest controversy about social media, and one that has persisted for two or three years now without resolution, is whether Google+ is a dying wasteland of non-activity, or a hive of conversation and engagement.

It can't be both. So which is it? And why can't this fundamental question be answered?

I believe I have the key to the puzzle, and I'll attempt to solve it once and for all.

Here what the Twitter people and the Facebook people don't understand about the Google+ people:

Looking for new router.

Needs to:
1. Be reliable (like REALLY reliable)
2. Support Wireless (N at least)
3. Reasonably priced (nothing in the 100+ region)

Workload:

- 2-3 wired devices (no gigabit connections available, can add switch later if needed)
- 3-4 wireless devices (tablet, phones, streaming to WD TV)

I was thinking of going for the super cheap Linksys E1200, but I wanted to know what others might have to suggest.

So, any ideas?

FYI

Restrict your content by age and location
As a content creator you may want to reach customers and fans of all ages, all over the world. Or you may want to engage more carefully, sharing only with age-appropriate audiences or audiences in certain countries. Google+ now enables both pages and profiles to restrict their content based on user age and location.

So for example: you can now decide that only users 18+ or 21+ should be able to see your posts. You can also specify ages on a country-by-country basis if you need something more custom.

To get started just visit your page or profile settings, scroll to ‘Audience,’ and choose your desired option. From then on your posts (old and new) will follow your restrictions.

Check out our Help Center if you’d like to learn more (http://goo.gl/1UTF7Q), and let us know what you think in the comments! We hope today’s update helps you reach your audience even more easily, and responsibly.

Questions about bending iPhones gets German magazines on the Apple blacklist

I wrote about Apple's blacklist last year: http://goo.gl/H15zEU

The column was weirdly controversial; people actually argued that Apple doesn't have a blacklist. 

Anyway, the German publication COMPUTER BILD tested the bend-ability of iPhone 6s, published a video of their test and then Apple did something uncharacteristic: They actually informed the publication that they were now on the blacklist.
