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 23:55:3310126011

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

Robert Scoble1,146,151Here are 500 of my favorite Tech Journalists, bloggers, and pundits. I'm sharing this since I am seeing lots of new people coming over and I'm sure they are looking for some great people to circle here. Unfortunately I can't share everyone that I have in this circle (I have 575 in this circle on my screen, but Google+ only lets me share 500 with you). Lots of interesting tech bloggers and journalists here. Hope you enjoy. This is the circle that starts my morning every day.Speaking of Tech News, I'm off to +VMware. They are announcing new Cloud Foundry stuff this morning. So, you'll probably see some tech news from the folks in this circle.2012-04-11 16:01:035005737104

I don't have a PlayStation. I have an Xbox--the old Xbox 360 kind, not the Xbox One--and I was busy yesterday morning anyway. For those of you who planned to chill out and spend your Sunday gaming with others on the Sony PlayStation Network, though, yesterday was probably very disappointing.

You know what's fun? When you look up a product on Amazon that you have no intention of buying--purely for morbid, sarcastic entertainment purpose--a device you probably wouldn't use if it was given to you for free...no even if they paid you to use it <cough>BlackBerry Passport</cough>--so then Facebook and the Interwebs decide you must want one and shows you the ad for it on every webpage you visit.

I really like the new iTunes, but why did Apple make the icon red? It makes it seem like something is wrong / broken. It definitely stands out on the Task Bar, but it stands out in a bad way.

So...that was weird. I got a phone call and it rang on my iPhone AND my iPad at the same time. I had forgotten about the feature of iOS 8 that lets you receive and answer phone calls and SMS text messages from a Mac OS X PC or another iOS 8 device.

That's pretty cool because my iPad doesn't even have cellular capabilities, and it means that if I'm using my iPad in the living room while my phone is charging on the desk in my office, I can just answer the call from the iPad instead of rushing around the house looking for my phone.

Radio show this morning was teasing a story about which year Rolling Stone Magazine has dubbed the "greatest year of pop music", and I immediately thought "1984". I was right.

Then, I looked at the list. Holy crap that was an AWESOME year ...of music. It was a year with Michael Jackson, and Prince, and Madonna, and Bruce Springsteen, and Van Halen, and, and, and...Even one-hit wonders like 99 Red Balloons have stood the test of time.

Note--Prince is responsible for FIVE of the top 10 singles of the year. Three are by Prince off the Purple Rain album, and he wrote Glamorous Life for Sheila E., and Chaka Khan's "I Feel For You" is a cover of a Prince song.

Radio show this morning was teasing a story about which year Rolling Stone Magazine has dubbed the "greatest year of pop music", and I immediately thought "1984". I was right.

Then, I looked at the list. Holy crap that was an AWESOME year ...of music. It was a year with Michael Jackson, and Prince, and Madonna, and Bruce Springsteen, and Van Halen, and, and, and...Even one-hit wonders like 99 Red Balloons have stood the test of time.

Note--Prince is responsible for FIVE of the top 10 singles of the year. Three are by Prince off the Purple Rain album, and he wrote Glamorous Life for Sheila E., and Chaka Khan's "I Feel For You" is a cover of a Prince song.

Dear, Apple:

Oh! I forgot, there is another issue as long as we're airing our differences. I appreciate that you offer me a choice between three different routes when I ask for directions in the Maps app. Once I have selected one, it would be great if you could just stick with that decision. Why is it that if I pull into a Starbucks drive-thru for a minute and you're forced to "recalculate" you default back to some other route that is not the one I chose? Is it that hard to recalculate based on the route I already selected?

OK. I think I'm really done now. For now, at least.

Dear, Apple:

One more thing. What is up with playing a music playlist on shuffle from an iOS device? Just because I am not in the mood for a particular song on a playlist and choose to skip it does not mean that you should break out of the playlist entirely and just start playing whatever random songs from my library of music that you choose. It just means I don't want to hear that one song right this minute.

Kthanxbye.

FYI-- Apple is hosting a media event right this minute, ostensibly to unveil its new iPhone(s) and/or possibly some sort of iWatch if the rumors and speculation are true.

Enjoy it. It will be the only news in the world today.

I am not liveblogging the event, and I am not going to race to regurgitate whatever Apple announces as quickly as possible. I will wait for the melodramatic superlatives, breathless headlines, and marketing rhetoric to die down a bit, and write a more thoughtful analysis in a few days.

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.

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.

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.
