Martijn van der Meulen5,976A few people have asked me about my Chrome OS circle, so here you go. The best Google+'ers you can find here that know about all things Chrome OS, Chromium OS, Chromebooks and Chromeboxes.Shout if you want to be included or if you recommend someone.2013-03-03 14:16:5024231224CC G+

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 17:42:33302805CC G+
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 23:06:413141048CC G+

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 10:39:5350021216CC G+
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.

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 14:56:1417056622CC G+
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 13:10:34291491133CC G+

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.

Martijn van der Meulen0A 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 12:15:44150311CC G+

Today we’re launching Google Camera, a new app for your Android phone or tablet that makes it easy to take quick photos and videos. And being behind the lens just got more fun with new creative picture modes.

Sleek Design. The 100% viewfinder gets out of your way while capturing the maximum resolution of the scene (no dropped pixels). And the extra large capture button is easy to press so your eyes never lose sight of the subject.

Lens Blur. Emphasize the subject while blurring the background for an SLR-like shot with shallow depth-of-field (or bokeh). You can even change the subject in focus after taking the shot.

Improved Panorama. New higher resolution panoramas capture the full width and detail of a scene.

Photo Sphere. Immersive 360 degree photo spheres let you look up, down and all around...now at up to 50 megapixels! For the first time available onn... more »

If you could produce an additional $1.5m in sales for just one day, do you think your boss would be happy,?

Well I bet +Google Glass has done just that, if not more.

By opening up the explorer programme to every US citizen who meets a small set of criteria with limited places, surely Google has shifted around 1000 units on Tuesday. I've seen rumours it could be 3500 so maybe they turned over $5.25m

Not bad for a development product that isn't ready for public sale yet.

Are smartwatches waterproof?

Every watch you buy these days is waterproof. Well it's pretty much presumed they are anyway.

So will this be the case for smartwatches? I know they have electronics and touchscreens but aren't some Sony smartphones waterproof?

I will be highly disappointed if I find out the +Motorola Mobility smartwatch isn't waterproof.

People walk about in the rain and hopefully wash their hands regularly. Some people even want to know the time whilst in the bath, and others whilst they are swimming. So it just makes sense to me!

That and an actual scratch resistant screen, not says it is, really really is!

Looking for some public opinion to help with a decision I'm trying to make.

Currently I own a +Nexus 4. For whatever reason I am having massive problems with the Bluetooth connection dropping constantly. Not any good when I'm often driving 200miles a day.

I'm now considering trading it in for £65 and putting that money towards a +Motorola Mobility Moto G as an upgrade. Difference being around £60.

Question is would you consider the Moto G an upgrade, worthy replacement or a downgrade?

I personally think its a worthy replacement (with limitations) but I'd like to eventually get the Moto X +1 later in the year (bearing in mind I won't pay over £300 for any phone)

Your thoughts...

I was sat in traffic earlier today and decided to download +Waze. I had heard bits and pieces about it but I had never given it a try before now.

As we approached the accident I reported it using the app as it wasn't already on the map. Only reason I decided to do this was because I've noticed reported incidents now appear on +Google Maps which I use a lot.

So I thought that was the end of it. But I was wrong. When I got to my destination I decided to play with the app. Upon opening it I was greeted with a thank you from two other Wazers for my report. How freaking cool was that :)

So now I want to use the App more. I opened it up on my commute home and to my surprise I was greeted by a notification that there was a stationary vehicle on the hard shoulder. Sure enough, there was.

I'm well impressed by +Waze I'm actually going to try it for... more »

Several people have been asking me about the new "view count" number which shows up on your profile, and I've been answering on a bunch of threads, so let me give you the key answers in one place.

What does this number count? This is total views on your profile, your posts, your photos, and your videos. 

What constitutes a "view?" For your profile, when someone goes to view your profile page. For other things, it's when they look at it -- e.g., when one of your posts shows up on someone's screen. (That's because this is how most people read posts: showing up in a stream, without clicking on it explicitly) Looking at your hovercard doesn't count.

Is this related to +1's, reshares, etc.? Only in that someone who +1'ed your post also probably saw it. You can already see counts for those on individual posts,... more »

I'm really looking forward to this Formula E championship which is starting in September. A little disappointed to find out that for the first season each team will be racing an identical car, and then after the initial season each team will develop their own cars. I guess it's a good way to set a benchmark though.

Well here's a little something to get you just as excited. Listen to that engine motor :)

Why hasn't +Google integrated Formula 1 in to Google Now yet.

It'd be nice to have cards showing practice, qualifying and race results after each session (either in full or for the teams/drivers you search for).

Additionally it'd be awesome to have a live card during the race showing current position, current tyre choice and number of pit stops, for your favorite drivers.

There are already full tables shown if you search for F1, so it shouldn't be that hard to implement a Google Now card.

And as the US grand prix is getting near. What a great time to get it working.

Come on Google. Get talking to Mr Ecclestone and Formula1.com

I'm just not a football fan.

+Motorola Mobility* Moto X Users,* do you have problems using Bluetooth?

My Nexus 4 cannot hold a Bluetooth connection for shit. Since +Android KitKat arrived I have had endless troubles to the point I am ready to throw the phone out the car window while traveling at 70mph.

Whether I am using my +Plantronics Voyager Legend headset, my SX1 Stereo headset, my Parrot in car Bluetooth system, or the inbuilt KIA Bluetooth system, my connection constantly drops in and out like a yoyo.

Whether I am in a call, listening to music, or the phone book is syncing the experience is dreadful.

I'm not sure what is causing it but the common object is the phone so maybe it's time for me to go Moto!

This is the cheapest option I have found to be able to watch F1 legitimately in the UK.

For my £10/month I'd have liked to have been able to use it on Tablets and watched it in HD. But for now it'll do. Watching it on a 4" screen in SD quality is BS but I refuse to pay the additional £34/m on my virgin media package just to watch 2 F1 races a month.

At least tomorrow I will get to get up stupid early and watch the first race of the 2014 Formula 1 championship in Australia Live :)

Your privacy relies on the security of others

Here's something I've never considered before, but I've just realised: If you share a lot of information with somebody on a social network, if that said person gets hacked, not only does the hacker get access to their personal data, but they also  gain access to yours as well. That is everything you have shared with that person, from photos, calendars and even files.

This is why I ask everybody to consider setting up 2 step verification. Help protect my data as well as your own. It's really no hassle at all once it's set up.

Thank you.

Now your chromecast can display a 24hr time format.

That's right, I put in a feature request and now you have the choice. (I'm sure I wasn't the only one asking)

Download the latest app and choose your settings now.

Wow. What a generous offer. £9.99 for 24 hour access to +Sky Sports F1 on Now TV

So to watch every session of the season it would cost £569.43

Do you think I've lost my mind?

So there is this thing starting tomorrow. It has been done many times before but this time it's different.

This time I'm exceptionally excited, but I still refuse to pay around £30 a month to watch it. +Sky Sports you suck. Give me just the F1 channel for £10/a month and you can have my money. But I'm not paying for all those other sports (channels) I care nothing about.

So F1. How will I watch you live. What am I going to do Saturday Morning when qualifying begins. I need a solution. I can't take it anymore.

+Sauber F1 Team how can I watch the international feed?

I can honestly say, upgrading from a Consumer +Google Account to a +Google Enterprise Apps for Business Account has been one of the most painful, frustrating, and time consuming things I've ever done.

In fact it was easier when I went from not working in the cloud at all, to working in the cloud exclusively.

If it wasn't for the fact I am committed and can see the future benefits, I would have walked away after about 2 hours, and Google could of kept their 30 day free trial and I would keep my future monthly premiums.

But, reluctantly I persisted. Signing up for Google Apps for Business and purchasing a Domain was the easy part. Migrating my data was the impossible task.

Let's start with Contacts. Quite straight forward. Export my Work Group contacts, and import them to my new account. Good start even if it was a... more »

Solution required.

How on earth do you transfer ownership of files and folders on +Google Drive from a personal account (@gmail) to a +Google Enterprise Google Apps account (@yourdomain)

I've recently signed up for a domain and Google apps account, and now want to transfer my business files over from my personal account but Google says I can't transfer ownership to somebody outside my (gmail) domain.

That makes no freaking sense.

Advice needed.

I don't understand our government. Why is it so hell bent on helping parents pass off their children to be raised by somebody else?

Why is it so taboo for a mother (or father) to actually choose not to return to work and instead raise their child as if it were their own (oh shit, it is their own).

I personally think the whole thing is backwards. I know it's not every persons cup of tea to spend every waking hour with their baby/toddler, but if that's you then maybe you should reconsider having kids altogether; they aren't a status symbol. But for those that want to nurture their kids, and share their own wisdom and knowledge of the world around them up until their school years (or beyond for home schoolers), why are they seen as lazy and crazy parents by most?

I guarantee you, any stay at home parent works harder and more relentlessly than any full... more »

Absolute Beginner’s Guide to 2014 #F1 Regulations: 02 - Aerodynamics.

While all F1 teams strive for more downforce by using all kinds of aero elements like front and rear wings to press the cars to the ground (for higher corner speeds), the FIA, on the other hand, regularly tightens regulations to slow the teams down. This has been an ongoing balancing act for many years now. The most important changes for 2014 are:

➤ For safety reasons, the height of the nose tip has been lowered from 55cm to 18.5cm, thus reducing the risk of a driver being hit in case of a collision (as well as making sure cars won't lift off if in contact with an opponent's wheels). Due to their unfamiliar shapes, 2014 noses have been given all kinds of names by fans and the media. The FIA is already thinking about changing the rules for 2015 in order to get rid of unpleasantloo... more »

Absolute Beginner’s Guide to 2014 F1 Regulations: Educational, fun to read, easy to understand. 01 - Wind tunnel and aero simulations.

Starting today we will introduce you to the new 2014 #F1 regulations. Don't miss any of our 1 to 2 daily posts, follow +Sauber F1 Team!

Let‛s start with a change that many of you may not have heard of yet: Wind tunnel usage and computer simulations a.k.a. CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics), are now regulated. Teams used to test up to 24/7 but in recent years needed to agree (FOTA agreement) to limit “wind-on time” to 60 hours per week or to limit CFD solving to 40 teraflops or a proportion of each to not exceed 100% in total. Don‛t worry about the details, it simply means that teams were limited in using their wind tunnels and supercomputers.

This has now become an FIAregulatio... more »

How to configure Auto-Backup of Photos in your Local Folders on your Android Device with the latest +Google+ Update

Following on from yesterday's post I reshared of +Gerwin Sturm's https://plus.google.com/112336147904981294875/posts/dezYpbr292q , it appears some of you are a little confused about how to configure which Local Folders Auto-Backup. And where has your Camera Folder gone?

Luckily for you, here's your how to guide

First off, open the +Google+app and head to settings/auto-backup. Make sure it is turned on, I recommend having it backup your images in Full Size. Then check that box next to "Local Folders"

Now return to the home page of the app, and from the side menu choose "Photos". Notice how the menu changes before it disappears. Head back in to the side menu and click "Folders"... more »

One more hidden feature of the latest Google+ Android app: Auto backup can now be extended to other folders, meaning photos taken/edited with other apps can be backed up as well!

You have to enable it in the settings first, and then can disable it for separate folders if you want.

I keep hearing good things about this free website. Yet to watch a movie myself but it certainly looks like it could do the job well. But what's the catch, nothing's free right?

Has anybody installed the android apk? Is it safe? Does it work with Chromecast yet? ;)

New photo features in Google+ for Android

Today’s update to Google+ for Android is all about photos. In particular, the app includes:

Non-destructive photo editing across devices
Starting today you can start your edits on one device, and continue (or start over) on another. This means you can backup full-resolution photos from your desktop, edit them in seconds on your phone, then add some finishing touches from your tablet. (And you can revert to your originals at any time!) The technical term for this experience is non-destructive editing in the cloud, and we think you'll really enjoy it.

Brand new filters and creative tools
Now when you edit your photos, you’ll have a powerful set of tools (like crop and rotate), 1-touch filters, and Snapseed-inspired enhancements (like Drama, Retrolux, and HDR Scape). Mix and match to make yourpho... more »

Public beta channel for the Google Cast extension

Earlier this month, we made the Google Cast SDK publicly available, allowing anyone to enable multi-screen experiences in their apps/sites.  In Chrome, this functionality is provided by the Google Cast extension, which was automatically updated to enable SDK features.

Going forward, we’ll continue to fix issues and add features to the Google Cast extension.  Similar to Chrome’s beta channel, today we’ve released a public beta channel for the Google Cast extension, so developers can test out the latest features before they’re released to the public.  Our goal in doing this is to work with the community to achieve several goals:

Only 126 days until the 7th annual Google I/O, when we come together with amazing developers like you to talk about what's next. On June 25-26, 2014, we’ll be broadcasting live from Moscone West. You can join us in person in San Francisco or remotely, via a live stream and through I/O Extended community events around the world. 

More details to come next month, including registration info. In the meantime, you can check out highlights from last year at https://developers.google.com/events/io/. 

Also, quick note for those who want to join in person: this year we’re making some changes to registration, so you won’t need to scramble the second registration opens. We'll be implementing a new system, where you can submit your interest to attend Google I/O 2014. Successful applicants will then be randomly selected and notified shortly thereafter.

Can somebody enlighten me regarding Google Apps - Drive.

If a business sets up Google Apps, can the business then create a common Shared Folder in Drive for all the employees to save files ie Documents, Spreadsheets, PDF's etc in which all or selected employees can then gain access.


Does one/each employee create their own folder and share that with other employees. If this is the only solution I'd be concerned company files would become very fragmented across employees. And I also wouldn't want any one employee to be the host of all the files.

If you are seeing this post, it is because you have me circled (or because somebody stupidly +1'd it and now you are seeing it because they share their +1's, which is actually quite thoughtful of them imo)

Anyhow. If you no longer want to see my smile, or no longer find my posts interesting, feel free to remove me from your circles. I won't be offended.

Sometimes you just need a good spring clean to keep your stream relevant. And spring is just around the corner, honestly :)

This is your Google+ experience, so go enjoy it.
