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 two) ...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 two with F1 aficionados from M to Z. You'll find part one further down in my stream.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 23:06:413141048

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
Martijn van der Meulen4,273Looking for other Nexus owners? Don't fret!Two days ago I started a search for people that love their Nexus device.

I found quite a few people and curated the Circle, just to make sure you're only adding the best of the best to your personal stream here on Google+.Please add and share this Circle.

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
Martijn van der Meulen2,841Looking for people that are active on Google+?People that both post great content, but also engage? Then this is the Circle you want to add. Yesterday I managed to get a group of great people together who love interacting with others - so if you post quality content you know that with this Circle you can broadcast it to an audience that's very active here.It has taken me about two hours to get this ready, so I hope people will appreciate it. And please re-share it if you think that your own followers will benefit from it as well.Just two small disclaimers:1) Being an "engager" doesn't mean that these people randomly click on any of the people that have them circled and start interacting. Like I said, it just means that if you post great content than this time you at least know that you're broadcasting it to people that are very active on Google+. (thanks +Annie Yim and +Meirav Berale for pointing this out).2) Most extensions for adding all people in a post are broken, so I had to add everyone by hand. Apologies if I've forgotten a few of you, such as +Missy Hope and +Arvid Bux. Make sure you add them! :)Enjoy!2012-04-13 13:10:34291481132

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
Lawrence Duffy411MotoCircle Maxed OutMotorcycle Circle for all to share.There is a weird rule on +Google+ that you can only share 500 people and pages from your circle so here they are. The other 500 will have to wait.Any of you tech wizard bikers out there got any way around this. I notice that the Science Circle have got this page http://goo.gl/UEdlB and a database!! in the background.Special mention to +John Cloonan +Timothy Pickett +Ride The Wild Wind - Motorcycle News & Opinion +Jason ON and whoever else made the connections.I now have endless streams of motorcycle goodness. #motocircle #motorcycle2012-03-31 20:17:33500624
Sir John Hardy17,427There have been a few circles shared about lately. None, however, is as good as this one. Each person in this circle has been crash tested in a laboratory, simmered in a social incubator and boiled in the crucible of interaction. All have come up with a pH reading of 4 or higher.2012-03-11 14:36:3337538720
Martijn van der Meulen940A few days ago I shared my #Chromies circle, aka a circle full of other Chromebook owners. It consisted of 91 people at the time, but soon after sharing I got bombarded with messages from other Chromebook owners who wanted to be added to it.The list now consists of 150 Chromebook owners(!). I curate the list properly so every one in the list is relatively active on Google+. Feel free to add them if you own a Chromebook as well and if you want to hear updates from Chromebook owners. Feel free to share this circle amongst your friends if you think they are interested in it as well.The list also includes ChromeOS Community Manager +Melissa Daniels who is definitely worth following for all the latest and greatest when it comes to Chromebooks.Enjoy!2012-02-17 12:15:44150311

Here it is. My very first smartwatch, the Sony Smartwatch 3 aka SWR50 running android wear.

I've had it since about 11am this morning, so I've had about half a day to get used to it. There are still many things to learn and appear in ways of notifications.

My initial impressions of the watch is that it is OK looking. Nothing special, but certainly not out of place for the purpose I want it for, which is in the work place. I certainly have no intentions of wearing it out to a dinner party, that's what real watches are for. This is not a piece of bling, this is purely for practicality.

But I don't really want to talk about the watch though, I'd rather talk about the experience. The first thing I noticed about this new device is that it's boring. Boring in the sense that you can't do anything with it. In fact it's much like a new born baby. You... more »

+Red Bull F1 360° Experience

This footage is every Formula One fans dream. A 360 degree footage of an F1 car on track. Load it up on the +YouTube app on +Android and then move your device around to look about as the car circuits the track.

Absolutely amazing. This is the future of TV my friends.

The mystery that is Google Photos gets more complicated with the latest Google Drive Integration

So can somebody with some official knowledge clarify this: How many copies of my photos exist, and which ones are safe to delete?

Let me explain. When I take a photo on my android device a copy is saved on the device in the Camera Roll Copy 1

This photo is then auto backed up to Google Photos and saved in the "Auto Backup" album Copy 2

This photo now appears in Highlights, is this another copy Copy 3 or is it just one or all of the previous/future copies.

If I then copy that photo to an album called "Latest Photos" the photo isn't removed from "Auto Backup" so I have Copy 4

I then decide to share that individual photo in my "Latest Photos" album with a small G+ circle. This creates a copy in the "Photos From Posts" album Copy 5

Later I decide to share that same photo in the "Latest Photos" album in a hangout message. This creates another copy in my "Photo's From Hangouts" album Copy 6

I now have the option to add the photo to a folder in Google Drive Copy 7

If I later decide to delete one copy of the photo from any of the instances above, does it also delete it from somewhere else, all of the above, or does it depend on which copy you delete?

Please help me understand this chaos, my head is spinning. And don't even suggest i share it more times in different posts or hangout messages___

Some people buy gold because it appreciates in value. Some people buy Rolex watches because they appreciate in value...And some people will buy a Gold Apple Smartwatch because they have way to much money.

One thing I'm sure of, this version will only loose you money because it'll loose functionality within years. The gold won't be worth anywhere near the original price tag of £8000 that Apple has slapped on its top end version of the watch. And most people won't think much of you for touting one either.

So if you have £8000 to spend, please please buy a real time piece in the name of a Rolex or Hublot to name a few. Support the real art of watch making, and not yet another printed circuit board. And if you still want an Apple watch, buy the other version that does the exact same thing for a 5th of the cost.

That's all.

So here is something I just found out, thanks to +Sauber F1 Team​

On +Google+​, when you share a photo you can allow your viewers to download a full resolution copy of the photo to keep for themselves. Now I knew this was a feature, but what I didn't realise is that +Sauber F1 Team​ (and maybe others) allow their followers to download all the photos they share intentionally.

Basically, if you like any of those amazing photos of that gorgeous blue and yellow car, feel free to help yourself and download a copy (for personal use only I'd assume).

Thanks +Sauber F1 Team​!

I hate Bluetooth. It is the worst technology that man has ever invented. It is so unreliable no matter what equipment you are using.

I can't wait for the day a hands free kit in a vehicle works more than 50% of the time. Its about time somebody invented NFC technology for hands free systems where you can put your phone in a holder and it connects to the hands free system without the need for wires or Bluetooth whilst charging at the same time.

If +Android​​ Auto is going to rely on Bluetooth I think its going to be a royal pain in the arse with constant dropping of connectivity.

What's your experience with Bluetooth. Is it just me that hates it?

Oh America (followed by other parts of the world), you are on such a slippery slope.

Yesteryear you decided to mass medicate the population by adding fluoride to public water supplies because some people don't brush their teeth regularly.

Today you wish to mass vaccinate the population because a few people got measles, ebola, or some other horrible illness.

And tomorrow who knows what chemicals your governments will decide they wish to put inside every one of you because of a few minorities. This could be in your water, your food or by injection.

Maybe it'll be to save smokers from lung cancer.

Maybe it'll be to save alcoholics from liver disease

Maybe it'll be the flu vaccine that the UK just decided was only effective in 3% of people, and quite possibly hospitalised more people than it saved.

Or maybe it'll all be one big experiment that goes catastrophically wrong.

Either way, it won't be your choice so I hope everyone enjoys the ride set out by a few individuals.

Me, I'll be getting off on the next stop with quite a few others, hoping good old hygiene and healthy living protects us. And where it doesn't, then I will rely on good old medicine which I choose (including vaccines once researched and decided necessary).

All I ask is that everybody is respectful to others, and not share your germs. And if that means wearing a mask (I applaud you China), or locking yourself away for a few days, so be it.

Here's my problem with Google, Android, and in particular, Nexus devices.

I think anybody that knows a little something about me will know by now that I'm a fan of all those things mentioned above. But I still have an issue with them.

Back on the 25th June 2014 Google told the world about android L and the new material design. How excited was I along with many others, especially as I already owned two Nexus devices.

But then we had the long wait for the official Android Lollipop release which got announced back on the 15th October 2014. You would think that would mean the wait was over and soon after we would get our upgrades. Well guess what, it has taken until today for my final device to get Android Lollipop; a 2013 nexus 7 with 4G

So for a fan with a nexus device to have to wait over 7 months to get upgraded to something that was teased all that time ago, it is an absolute killer. And quite frankly I hate it. I hate the way the technology industry announces products that aren't yet available, or even have a planned release date. The next time I hear about a new product, I want it available within a week if not sooner!

Isn't that what the Nexus range was meant to be? Cutting edge, with fast updates. Com'on, 7 months, seriously???

So guess what, in 4 and a bit months time, I'll probably be learning about what I'll have in 2016.___

For those of you that like all this home automation stuff, here is another toy to add to your inventory (although it has nothing to do with home automation).

This Power Ethernet 2  gang socket (well 1 gang really), can replace a standard 2 gang socket, and enable you to run a network over your existing power cables. It uses the Powerline technology so it is compatible with other manufacturers products. The advantage with this is its appearance because it isn't a plug in module, but fits flush like a standard socket. The downside, you lose a socket outlet.

All you need to do is plug an ethernet cable from your hub, and then plug any ethernet enabled device in to another powerline device, ie your smart TV, and presto you have a hard wired network throughout your house without having installing any fixed wiring. Bingo.

This here is the single most reason why I am yet to invest in a +Nest​ thermostat. If I purchased the device complete with installation at £249, it would need to reduce my energy consumption by 68% to pay itself off in the first year. But that's a unrealistic expectation I know. As you can see from the photo, my gas usage is already pretty low and under control at £367 per year, way less than the UK average.

A 10% saving is what I would really expect. But even at that figure, it would take 6 years 10 months to make my money back. Now this doesn't take in to account any electricity used by the device, although probably very low.

Now let's be really honest here. Is anybody expecting their nest thermostat to still be working like new in 7 years time? Some how I think this is going to be just a very expensive toy.

So sorry, but I'm out.

This is a very interesting post regarding simple math. Put yourself to the test and vote for your correct answer on the original post. Thanks to +Max Huijgen for yet another post that gets the brain thinking.

What I found to be most interesting from this is that the Calculator App on Android Lollipop actually follows the basic laws of mathematics. I put it to the test with the simple sum of 1+5x5= ? Now dependant on your own mathematical knowledge the answer is either 30 or 26.

A little hint. so long as you don't press = until the end, the Calculator App will get it right :) Impressive, but also highlights the need to make sure you enter your sums correctly when using the App.

Googlers: I know you're handy with words but how about some simple math?
Solving 12 : 4 × 3 (or 12 ÷ 4 * 3) looks easy, but can you multiply that total with 1 + 2 x 3? Pick your answer below and let's see if G+ can solve the kind of 'math' we expect from current primary school students.

Now that I have lollipop installed on my Sony Smartwatch 3, I have disabled the tilt to wake screen feature. This makes me a very happy man because with the transflective display, it just makes complete sense.

The only thing that remains is for Google to remove the long press to change the watch face feature. Now that you can change the watch face from the settings menu on the watch, and from within the android wear app on your phone, the long press feature is unnecessary. In fact, having the feature enabled is just a pain in the @#£% because every time I cross my bare arms, the watch thinks I'm trying to change its face.

So glad to see +Jenson Button continue in this sport. I actually began to think that he had made a personal choice to leave the sport due to the death of his father before this last season. I thought maybe he had simply asked for the team to keep it quiet so he could slip away under the spotlight.

Thankfully I've been proven wrong and the gentleman of the show carries on for one more year at least \o/

I found this quite interesting. Just because you move out of the US doesn't mean you can avoid paying a US tax bill.

Thats crazy and almost makes US citizens a prisoner to their homeland. Why would you go live abroad to then have two tax bills?

In reference to the debate on the original post, here are my views.

I think the real problem isn't the nipple, it is our adult views and perceptions. Since when did seeing a woman breastfeed a baby become so taboo, because of the risk of an exposure of a breast or nipple? And why do places like Claridges feel the need to ask breastfeeding woman to cover up and consider other peoples feelings (see the recent news)? And why is breastfeeding never shown in family TV shows?

The most natural act of simply feeding a baby should be embraced and rewarded, not shamed and discriminated. Breastfeeding should be so common place in public that, seeing a baby have a scientifically produced formula milk fed through a plastic beaker should be the action that raises eyebrows. Not the sight of a baby having natural breast milk from its mother, like so many other animals do. Formula... more »

Free the nipple will release in two days
The movie that is, the movement is well on its way albeit with little success.

The weird thing is it's a battle about the freedom to show an extremely small part of the human body. And even that sentence is incorrect as only the female version of the smallest part imaginable of the human body is 'forbidden'.

In the majority of the US states you can be arrested and fined for showing off a nipple if you're a women that is Even in free haven New York where both genders are allowed to walk around without a top the actors of 'Free the Nipple' were stopped by police as 'the public could have been confused'. 

Prudency laws are arbitrary wherever you are, but they are always sexist. Can't show your hair in Saudi-Arabia, can't show your face in Afghanistan, can't show your tits in the US. All true, but only for women, never for men.

Heck, nowadays you can't even breastfeed in public in most of the Western world. As good as 100% of men grew up on breast milk, but almost universally they don't want to see these same nipples again. Or I should precise here: not for free. 

Nipples went commercial. They made it big time after feeding the boys. Billions are made by showing these forbidden extremities, but we call them porn. Not the breasts: they are fine for reasons unknown but these little tipping points trigger censors all over the world. 

Why do we live in a society that's afraid of getting aroused by the same breasts that fed them once? Is it the incentious thought of being attracted to 'mamas'?

High chance that this post will disappear as Google, like other social media is governed by the worst of American censors. I made a copy of the text and will repost with a 10x10 pixel blur.....

Go back thirty years and imagine a European forum and my text would have been irrelevant and the photo one of so many...

We - the west that is - collectively followed the Taliban. The world went backwards as a whole.

the movie  #freethenipple  http://www.freethenipple.com/ is expected to debut on the 14th.

The most natural act of simply feeding a baby should be embraced and rewarded, not shamed and discriminated. Breastfeeding should be so common place in public that, seeing a baby have a scientifically produced formula milk fed through a plastic beaker should be the action that raises eyebrows. Not the sight of a baby having natural breast milk from its mother, like so many other animals do. Formula Milk serves a purpose, but it should never be considered the norm like it is in today's society. Instead it should only be considered the backup when breastfeeding is not an option due to medical grounds.

Sadly our society has taken one massive step in the wrong direction, but a movement is coming. Breast feeding is returning. So you better get used to seeing the odd breast or even a nipple in public. But instead of feeling uncomfortable with the sight, we should all feel proud for the momma, and happy for that tiny little baby because they are getting the best start in life. So many are unaware of the health benefits to both baby and momma. Sure you can pump more chemicals in to your baby by ways of vaccines to protect against certain illnesses, but breast milk does the same and more. The mother's immune system is passed on, to help protect against everyday colds and infections, as well as those illnesses we vaccinate against. In fact it is believed breastfeeding is more effective than vaccines alone.

So stop making woman feel uncomfortable. Just let it be for the babies sake, if not for anybody else.

My favourite feature of the SWR50 is its transflective display.

The fact that in bright situations the display is highly visible even without the backlight activated is just brilliant, but the fact that when it's in dark environments the watch face is completely black with no backlight leaking through is just fantastic.

Some may argue that this is a poor design, but I actually think it is the perfect design. As soon as I raise my wrist or touch the screen the backlight kicks in and the display becomes visible. So in dark situations, ie cinemas, there is no distractive light being emitted. Perfect

A duck catches bird flu in the UK so 6000 other healthy ducks are slaughtered to protect the human species, even though it hasn't been confirmed humans can contract it

Thousands of humans catch ebola and die, yet no human has been slaughtered even though it can be passed between humans. Instead humans do everything they can to protect lives (except a slaughter), even releasing a bloody christmas song.

Perspective right. It's only a duck afteral.

P.s I eat meat, I just find this amazing that its socially accepted to kill a healthy animal for no real reason.

Here it is. My very first smartwatch, the Sony Smartwatch 3 aka SWR50 running android wear.

I've had it since about 11am this morning, so I've had about half a day to get used to it. There are still many things to learn and appear in ways of notifications.

My initial impressions of the watch is that it is OK looking. Nothing special, but certainly not out of place for the purpose I want it for, which is in the work place. I certainly have no intentions of wearing it out to a dinner party, that's what real watches are for. This is not a piece of bling, this is purely for practicality.

But I don't really want to talk about the watch though, I'd rather talk about the experience. The first thing I noticed about this new device is that it's boring. Boring in the sense that you can't do anything with it. In fact it's much like a new born baby. You... more »

Boring in the sense that you can't do anything with it. In fact it's much like a new born baby. You have to wait for it to request your attention. Sure you can poke and prod at it, even talk to it, but the best experience is when it calls for you when you are least expecting it. It'll do something that makes you nod in appreciation.

Right now I couldn't tell you what the best thing about it is. There is nothing I dislike about it, and nothing that has me jumping for joy. Has it made a difference in the short few hours I've had it, probably not. Am I enjoying it, absolutely. But the real test is going to be the period after the honeymoon. Hopefully this isn't going to be a 5 minute wonder, but instead bring some real benefits to my everyday work.

We will see.

P.s On the watch front, boy does that band collect every bit of dust (See photo).___

+Brian Matiash​​ Each time I take a photo on my Nexus 4 running the latest version of android 4.4.? and the latest update to Google Camera, my phone goes nuts.

It started happening with the Google Camera update prior to the last one (about 2 weeks ago). I was hoping the latest update was going to fix the issue as I left feedback. Here is a screen shot of what happens. Often the phone will reboot straight after.

My wife's Nexus 4 does exactly the same so I'm wondering if it is an issue related to Nexus 4 devices only. Can you pass on the screenshot to the team. Thank you.

Is anybody else experiencing this?

I'm not sure how I managed this but I've got a Sony SWR50 due to arrive at my office on Monday 10th November, and wait for it, I only got charged £155

I preordered it at over £225 just a week or so back and was given a lowest price guarantee by Amazon. This watch is suppose to retail for £189 I believe, so I'm well happy with this cracking deal. What a steal.

Now the question is, will I enjoy it? I still love the look of the LG G Watch Round, but I think this watch has more potential with its GPS, NFC and WiFi capabilities. Only time will tell.

I want to share with you all a new product that I'm bringing to mass market.

I don't have anything to show you at the moment but the specs are above anything you have ever seen before. It will blow all its competitors out of the water.

I can tell you that it will be released sometime soon. And that it will cost you some money.

Now that I hopefully have you hooked, this is what I see everyday in the tech world. Promises of new things to come, surrounded by a load of hype. No actual details, no prices, and no firm release dates.

Why don't tech companies wait until they actually have a product ready to sell before they announce it to the world. Look at +Virgin Galactic. Is this ever actually going to be a thing, or is it some massive PR stunt?

+LG Mobile Global / LG G Watch R, I'm looking at you right now!

I'm slightly confused, so I'm hoping somebody may be able to shed some light for me.

I've always been under the impression that the android wear OS isn't customisable by manufactures much beyond watch face designs.

So in regards to the article below, is that update specific to the moto 360 or is it an android wear update that all android wear watches benefit from?

I've always liked the sound that comes from a piano and now I think I have fallen in love with it. I decided to go searching for acoustic piano sounds and this song was the first I came across on +YouTube. It is truly mesmerising. Be sure to listen to it in complete and utter silence, with no disturbances. Maybe even close you eyes and feel the story behind the music.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Now I am going to explore some other songs by +ThePianoGuys and I may even share some more with you all if I like them.

P.S

Something makes me think +Jean-Baptiste Quéru may appreciate this, as I believe he loves a good sound system and some decent classical sounding music.

My thoughts on the Jules Bianchi accident, and solutions.

Please visit my original post in the F1 Community if you wish to comment.

First I want to start with; what happened to Jules Bianchi is a terrible thing...

But...

I can't stop thinking that everyone is looking at this all wrong. People keep calling for the cars to be made safer, be it enclosed cockpits, or roll cages.

Others are saying the race should have been stopped because of the rain. Personally I think unless you can't see the track in front of you, these are skilled drivers who should be pushed to the extreme of racing in the most slippery of conditions. That is their skill so it should be tested to the extreme.

Others are calling for safety cars to be deployed when a recovery vehicle is on track, again I feel double yellow flags is more than adequate. It signifies to slow down and be prepared to stop. Something I think the drivers tend to ignore.

But what I haven't seen criticised is the recovery vehicle itself. Now I personally feel what happened where a race car came of at the same corner in which a recovery vehicle was already on circuit and then collided with it was a freak accident. It has occurred in the past though, so it is a danger and it needs addressing. I can't help but feel we need to turn our attention to the physical aspects of the recovery vehicle itself. That vehicle is a huge lump of weight that has a high ground clearance. Any race car that collides with it is going to be subjected to a huge impact, and as seen with Bianchi, the car is likely to partially end up going under the recovery vehicle. So what struck me was, why are recovery vehicles not surrounded by an impact absorbing material that stretches down to the ground to stop race cars from going under the vehicle and also reducing the impact forces? Tyres, barriers, water barrels?

I can't help but wonder that if Jules Bianchi had hit some form of protective barrier, the barrier, wheels, nose cone and cockpit would have absorbed a lot of the impact reducing the incredible stopping forces that occurred.

Am I being too simplistic?

So to sum up, the issue isn't the car, it isn't the weather and it isn't the race procedures. The issue is with the recovery vehicle itself!___My thoughts on the Jules Bianchi accident, and solutions.

On top of this I keep hearing the 6+ is as bendy as a stick of celery and you shouldn't keep it in your pocket.

This is not what I expect from Apple. Their products are usually top quality, even if they aren't my personal preference.

So is it all true or is this overinflated just like the hype?___

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.
