Paul Snedden4,705Shared Circle of IrrelevanceI'm doing this for you, my Google+ family. I am not one for joining the masses and doing whatever the latest fad is, but posting my top 100 relevant persons seemed like a reasonable thing to do to celebrate the 12 month anniversary of Google+ (yes, I'm late). If you got this notification, you're in my top 100. Each one of you is awesome, giving me the content I want to see whilst also giving me lots of laughs along the way.Please enjoy. #top99  2012-07-24 23:55:3310126011CC G+

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

Robert Scoble1,146,151Here are 500 of my favorite Tech Journalists, bloggers, and pundits. I'm sharing this since I am seeing lots of new people coming over and I'm sure they are looking for some great people to circle here. Unfortunately I can't share everyone that I have in this circle (I have 575 in this circle on my screen, but Google+ only lets me share 500 with you). Lots of interesting tech bloggers and journalists here. Hope you enjoy. This is the circle that starts my morning every day.Speaking of Tech News, I'm off to +VMware. 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 16:01:035005737104CC G+

How much should an ultrabook with a 4th generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD cost? What if it also has a touchscreen display? What if it can also detach from its keyboard to function as a true tablet?

If you try searching BestBuy.com for a device that fits that criteria, you will find the Surface Pro 3 is not over-priced. Microsoft still has to fight against that common misperception, though.

Do we need any more evidence, that 1. Comcast should not be allowed to buy Time Warner and expand its monopoly, and 2. Comcast should be investigated and probably fined--heavily--by the FTC??

There is some good advice in here. Record your ...calls with companies like Comcast. Then, even if you end up resolving the issue, make sure you share those recordings with everyone to publicly shame the company if it involves any of the shady "negotiating" Comcast is guilty of.

(Warning: NSFW)

Is this how Comcast "negotiates"? Comcast agent, technician, and supervisor lie about $180 charge!

The driving force behind the demand for Android tablets isn't really Android. It's the fact that there are so many Android tablet options that are ridiculously dirt cheap. Microsoft and its partners seem prepared to go toe-to-toe with the Android market with a slew of affordable Windows tablet.

Smaller devices like the Kindle Fire and iPad Mini have carved out a place in the tablet market, and proven that tablets are not one-size-fits-all. The new trend is in the opposite direction--with devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 seeking to demonstrate the value of a super-sized tablet.

Whether you buy a Toyota Prius, or lease a Toyota Prius it is still a Toyota Prius. The difference is in how you pay for it.

The same thing is true about Office vs. Office 365, and the same thing will be true if Microsoft chooses to offer... some sort of Windows 365 option. Paying for Windows using a different business model is entirely different than using a cloud-based Windows-as-a-Service.

Security should be a primary consideration for any developer. When you streamline and accelerate the development process with DevOps, though, integrating and managing security becomes much more crucial.

I was not a fan of the idea of an iPad Mini when the rumors first started. I think the original / standard iPad size is quite nice. Eventually, though, I accepted that the iPad Mini is also quite nice and serves a different need.

The same may end up being true if the speculation about a larger iPad is accurate. At least with the larger iPad I can understand the need, as long as Apple takes care of some other things to go along with the bigger display.

The Surface Pro 3 is pretty special right out of the box. It is larger than its predecessors, and yet somehow thinner, lighter, and more powerful at the same time.

Just because something costs more doesn't mean it's better, and just because something is cheap--or even free--doesn't necessarily make it a great deal. Value and price are two separate things, and value is relative.

There has always been a lot of talk about security awareness--that if we just educate users about the risks and threats the world will be a safer place. A new survey from Kaspersky seems to disprove that theory because awareness is high, but many users are not taking even basic precautions to do anything about it.

A new survey from Kaspersky seems to disprove that theory because awareness is high, but many users are not taking even basic precautions to do anything about it.

Some things don't need to be reinvented--like the wheel. However, some things--even very simple things that seem to work OK--could benefit from a little reinventing. One of those things is the butter knife. Check out this Kickstarter project.

It is awesome to be able to control your lights, or thermostat in your home over the Internet from anywhere you are. It's also pretty cool to have news and weather updates displayed on your refrigerator. However, if you can connect to your ...devices over the Internet, or your appliances can connect to the Internet to get information, they are also potentially vulnerable to being attacked and compromised via the Internet.

The point-of-sale system compromise only impacted about 50 of the 4,000-plus UPS retail locations, but if you were unlucky enough to have used one of those facilities between January and August of this year attackers probably have your credit card information.

There are cheaper Windows 8 tablets out there, but none of them can match the Surface Pro 3 in terms of providing the full desktop PC experience in a tablet. No other tablet can claim to be "The tablet that can replace your laptop"...that is until now. Dell has followed the Microsoft playbook closely with the Venue 11 tablet.

How much should an ultrabook with a 4th generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD cost? What if it also has a touchscreen display? What if it can also detach from its keyboard to function as a true tablet?

If you try searching BestBuy.com for a device that fits that criteria, you will find the Surface Pro 3 is not over-priced. Microsoft still has to fight against that common misperception, though.

Do we need any more evidence, that 1. Comcast should not be allowed to buy Time Warner and expand its monopoly, and 2. Comcast should be investigated and probably fined--heavily--by the FTC??

There is some good advice in here. Record your ...calls with companies like Comcast. Then, even if you end up resolving the issue, make sure you share those recordings with everyone to publicly shame the company if it involves any of the shady "negotiating" Comcast is guilty of.

(Warning: NSFW)

Is this how Comcast "negotiates"? Comcast agent, technician, and supervisor lie about $180 charge!

Revenge. It's generally not a wise choice, but it does seem to be a natural, visceral response to being attacked. When it comes to malware and cyber attacks, there is a growing push to stop being passive victims, and return fire. There are some legal and ethical issues, though, when it comes to attacking another party--even if the motive seems justified.

The problem is that taxicabs are guilty of the same things and worse, so Who's Driving You? doesn't make a very compelling case.
