Jens “Google Plus Yoda” Graikowski580,948_*PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE YOU CLICK ON "GOING" OR "MAYBE"!*_ It's race weekend again! Let's hang out! Here is how it works: ➢ We all watch the race on our own individual TV sets. There is not going to be a race broadcast in the hangout for several reasons. ▸ A broadcast would take over the hangouts audio and would make it impossible for us to talk. ▸ It means, we can all watch the race in the language we prefer (in my case it's German). ▸ The broadcast would take up a hangout spot. I'd rather have one of you guys there. ▸ Since it's a HoA (Hangout on Air) we'd have copyright issues. ➢ I'll invite participants in two steps. ▸ About an hour before the race starts (find out here, when exactly that will be in your time zone: http://bit.ly/16HoQeb) I will invite all of those of the _Google+ Paddock Club_ ... ▸ Just before the race I will invite my _Formula 1_ circle. *Get your _Google+ Paddock Club_ pass! ...* So if you want to make sure, that you get a spot, clicking on _"Going"_ will get you into the _Google+ Paddock Club_ and clicking on _"Maybe"_ into the _Formula 1 Circle_!

martin shervington1,116,527Have you heard of a chap called Kevin MacCleod? Well, you almost certainly have heard his work... It has been estimated that in the region of 800,000 videos on YouTube have included music he has created. 800,000! And so many of those videos have thousands upon thousands of views. He has over 1000 entries on IMBD as the composer the music for movies as well. WOW. Kevin is not only a powerhouse who has transformed how people access music through a creative commons licence, he is one heck of a nice fellow. We met in a hangout the other day and he has agreed to an interview on everything from why 'giving it away' works, about his most successful tracks (will a quick taste if we are lucky), and all about the documentary they are making on him as well. Should be a lot of fun.  Hope to see you then!Interview with legendary Composer Kevin MacCleod, the chap from Incompetech!2013-05-08 20:00:0022  
Jens “Google Plus Yoda” Graikowski580,948Yeeehaaaw! It's Race weekend again and we are going to hang out! Loads has happened in this #Formula1 season already, some of it good, some not so good. Our _Formula 1 Race Hangouts_ have been created to discuss those happenings with birds-of-a-feather and to watch the races together. Last year, when I started with those hangouts they were rather poorly frequented. This year things seem to have settled a bit at G+ and I'm really happy with the turn out. We've always had several, highly knowledgeable #F1 buffs in attendance and I can only imagine what is going to happen once the European races start. I therefore invite everybody who wants to join in with the following system: ▸ The race starts at 1 pm GMT. About an hour before (find out here, when exactly that will be in your time zone: http://bit.ly/17JhW5Z) I will invite all of those of the _Google+ Paddock Club_ ... ▸ Just before the race I will invite my _Formula 1_ circle. You can request admission to the _Google+ Paddock Club_ by clicking on _Going_ and to the _Formula 1_ circle by clicking on _Maybe_. We all watch the race on our own individual TV sets. There is not going to be a race broadcast in the hangout for several reasons. ▸ A broadcast would take over the hangouts audio and would make it impossible for us to talk. ▸ It means, we can all watch the race in the language we prefer (in my case it's German). ▸ The broadcast would take up a hangout spot. I'd rather have one of you guys there. ▸ Since this is a HoA (Hangout on Air) we'd risk copyright infractions. Hope to see you all on Sunday and *Please share this event!* Greez, +Jens Graikowski  Formula 1 Race Hangout - Grand Prix of Bahrain2013-04-21 13:00:0023

Jens “Google Plus Yoda” Graikowski580,948HANGOUT FOR THE FIRST F1 GRAND PRIX OF THE SEASON Last year we did several "Formula 1 Race hangouts" and though I'd have wished attendance to have been a bit higher, we had great fun with the few who did come. This year (after G+ has settled down a bit) I hope that we get a few more peeps to watch the races together with us. Here is how it works: ➢ We all watch the race on our own individual TV sets. There is not going to be a race broadcast in the hangout for several reasons. ▸ A broadcast would take over the hangouts audio and would make it impossible for us to talk. ▸ It means, we can all watch the race in the language we prefer (in my case it's German). ▸ The broadcast would take up a hangout spot. I'd rather have one of you guys there. ➢ I'll invite participants in two steps. ▸ About an hour before the race starts (find out here, when exactly that will be in your time zone: http://bit.ly/Ynm5nT) I will invite all of those of the "Google+ Paddock Club".  ▸ Just before the race I will invite my Formula 1 circle. GET YOU GOOGLE+ PADDOCK CLUB PASS! So if you want to make sure, that you get a spot, join the "G+PC"! To join the club you can either click on "Going" at this event or +1 the second comment at this post: http://bit.ly/ZfYUhL. Either way you'll be added to the "G+PC" circle.

Our education system
It's about time for some serious changes.

Being the father of two teenage daughters I sometimes can't believe how outdated our education system is. Times have changed, but our school system is still the same it was 150 years ago. How long will our children still have to suffer and go into life badly prepared, because those responsible are scared of change?

My watch face for today: Star Trek
With a 24mm watch strap on a 22mm watch.

Did something a bit different today. I saw a cheap €8,- watch yesterday, but I liked the canvas watch strap, so I bought it, binned the watch and cut corners out of the 24mm strap to make it for my 22mm +SteelConnect​ adapters. It hasn't turned out perfect (I'm still practising), but the idea is good. Paired with my Star Trek watch face it makes a nice combination.

Little treasures

I had a few minutes before work and by coincidence I passed by one of our local beaches. I've been that way thousands of times before but today I looked out of the car window and saw this spot that had completely escaped my attention before.

The are many benches on that stretch of the beach but due to the wisdom of the gardeners the view from every single one of them down to the beach is obscured by bushes, trees and other, undoubtedly beautiful, vegetation. This is the only one that offers this magnificent view in between two trees. A little treasure that I had the good fortune to be able to enjoy for a couple of minutes. A good start to the day.

Larsson & Jennings - black
This is a simple and elegant watch face, but for all its simplicity it was still a bit of a challenge.

With dark and pretty much uni-coloured watch faces like this I find that they're lacking in depth on 2D smart watch screens. So I don't use a photoshopped background, but completely recreate it with vector graphics in Inkscape and add lighting and shadows where I find it necessary to create a stronger 3D effect. The hands have dynamic shadows and lighting, meaning the shadows and darker sides of the watch hands will always face away from the virtual light source (which in this case comes from the top left).

Enjoy, and may the Plus be with you,
+Jens Graikowski​

Android 5.1.1 on the Moto 360
Youtube vid by Phandroid about what is different in the newest version of Android Wear.

#AndroidWear 5.1.1 has finally come to the #Moto360. As always the rollout is gradual, so if you haven't got it yet, don't fret. It'll get to your watch too in the next few days.

I have mine already and am quite happy with it. Wanted to write a post about the changes, but this video explains it quite well, so why go through the trouble, right?

What do you like best of all the changes Android Wear 5.1.1 brings? Is there stuff you'd have liked to see in this update? How do you like it in general?

I wanted to make the yellow gold version of this watch, but noticed that I have almost no watch faces for my new black crocodile leather watch strap, so I decided to make this white gold version first. It's the first time I'm using dynamic lighting for the hands, thanks to code provided by +Javs Mb​.

The yellow gold version will follow soon, but I hope some of you might like this one too.

My new watch straps have arrived!
That's a good occasion to get out one of my older creations again.

I don't really like to use the word "creation" for my watch faces. After all they were not designed by me. This one for example is the recreation of a IWC Le Petit Prince. I only copied it (or, as my G+mate +Klaus Koehler​ would say, I "recycled" it). I like it though, because it shows off nicely the advantages of vector graphics over "real" watch faces.

I like to create my watch faces from scratch (even the copies), using Inkscape. The designs are sharp and crisp and I have complete control over every design element. It is loads of work, I know, but I find it quite therapeutic and relaxing.

Creativity is everything
This is the kind of person I admire.

I'm about as creative as a rock. That is why I deeply admire those who create beautiful things and if they do it with few funds it's something to be even more proud of. Steve Areen built himself a home for only $9000 and I've rarely ever seen a dwelling as unusual and beautiful as this one.

Past Decisions
I'm just watching an episode of one of my favourite TV shows, Castle, and something Richard Castle says to his daughter Alexis got me thinking.

You see, I'm in a pretty good section of my life right now. I have two absolutely amazing daughters who make me very proud. I have an intelligent and beautiful wife, a job that pays the mortgage and is fun at the same time. I have (almost) everything I'd wish for (isn't there always something else and isn't that what makes life fun?), but it wasn't always like that.

I've been through bad times too. Actually there was a time when I could've been called the black sheep in the family. When I look back at those times I often think how different my current life could be if I hadn't made those mistakes. And then, watching TV, this quote by Richard Castle comes along:

"One day you'll look back and you'll realise that every experience you ever had, every seeming mistake or blind alley was actually a straight line to who you were meant to be." ~ Richard Castle

Maybe this is not the deepest thought I've ever heard, but it gives me a sense of content, of belonging. Maybe if I had done only one thing differently in my past life, maybe even one of those decisions I'm least proud of, I might not have those two wonderful daughters now whom I love more than life itself. Maybe I wouldn't be with that wonderful wife who drives me mad at least once a day. Maybe my life would've turned out differently, but I doubt it'd have turned out better.

Early cancer detection in our smart watches?
It's still early days, but Google has secured a patent that might just make a difference in the fight against cancer.

Still experimenting with "Collections" I wasn't right sure if I should put this in my "Future Technology" or my "Android Wear" collection. But since this technology is still far off I guess FT is the better fit.

A Wristband that Destroys Cancer Cells

Google has now secured a patent for a potentially cancer cell-destroying wrist-worn device. In combination with the magnetic nanoparticles in Google’s cancer-detecting pill, the device could generate its own magnetic field, allowing it to corral the particles, with targeted cells not far behind. The device will presumably offer a readout of just how cancer cell-saturated your blood is. Think of it like a wearable glucose monitor - only instead of sugar, it’s counting tumor cells.

The truth about tech journalism

"In general, the great masses of tech journalists and bloggers are a band of trendy and easily influenced conformists who sometimes care more about staying in tune with the echo chamber than about objective reality." (+Mike Elgan​ - tech journalist)

I couldn't have said it better than Mike Elgan in his piece about what the tech journalist crowd as a whole is getting wrong about Google Glass. That is why Mike is one of my favourite tech writers.

Three lies about Google Glass.

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/gDPFTd )

Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt shocked everyone last week by telling The Wall Street Journal that Google isn't killing Google Glass.

Schmidt's comments were viewed as a surprise and a revelation, even though he was repeating what Google had said previously about its smart glasses project.

People thought Google was sunsetting the Google Glass project because they believed the press.

I love my peers in the tech press -- individually. But as a herd, we can get it wrong.

In general, the great masses of tech journalists and bloggers are a band of trendy and easily influenced conformists who sometimes care more about staying in tune with the echo chamber than about objective reality.

The perfect example for this is how the tech press mob convinced everyone about three Google Glass lies: That Google Glass was an unacceptable invasion of privacy; that it was an overpriced elitist plaything; and that it was a failed and now dead project.

Here's why they were wrong on all counts:

There's been far too much negativity in the sport in the last few years. The greedy little dwarf has made the F1 into a money making machine for himself and his share holder pals and not much more. There's more off-track scandals in the news nowadays than on-track triumphs. It somehow doesn't seem to be my kind of sport anymore.

I still support Sauber
The +Sauber F1 Team​​ is making headlines again. Unfortunately more off, than on-track. I still support Sauber.

Last year the tabloids had a field day reporting Sauber's financial dilemma and this year it's another off-track topic that dominates the Sauber headlines. The Dutch driver Giedo Van Der Garde sued the team for a seat in this year's car, saying that it was promised to him and that his sponsors gave the Sauber team money (it is said 8 million euros) under that condition. If it is true, it would mean that Sauber sold two seats to three drivers. That would be a major f*** up, highly un-ethical, if not illegal. So, why do I still support Sauber?

First, I don't have all the facts. Just like last year, when I said that everybody should wait for definite information from the Sauber team, rather than believing everything therag... more »

Last year the tabloids had a field day reporting Sauber's financial dilemma and this year it's another off-track topic that dominates the Sauber headlines. The Dutch driver Giedo Van Der Garde sued the team for a seat in this year's car, saying that it was promised to him and that his sponsors gave the Sauber team money (it is said 8 million euros) under that condition. If it is true, it would mean that Sauber sold two seats to three drivers. That would be a major f*** up, highly un-ethical, if not illegal. So, why do I still support Sauber?

First, I don't have all the facts. Just like last year, when I said that everybody should wait for definite information from the Sauber team, rather than believing everything the rags write, I'm waiting for an official statement from Sauber now, before I go and judge anybody.

Second and more importantly, if it is true and somebody at the Sauber brass tore up Van Der Gardes contract without regard for the consequences, then it was most certainly not a team decision. An F1 team is not a democracy.

For me, the team is not (or not only) the top floor. For me, the team is all those mechanics, technicians, designers, drivers and everybody else who've worked hard since last year to present a reliable and competitive car for this season. All those who have no part in making decisions, but are still responsible for providing us fans with everything we need for a race season full of excitement, tears and triumph. And for all those, I still proudly support the +Sauber F1 Team​​​​!

May the Plus be with you,
+Jens Graikowski​​​​

A vision of the future
Though I'm concerned about our political future, I believe there're great things to come in our technological one.

Some of the things in this video seem far fetched, but while I was writing this I was thinking "could I have imagined 20 years ago, that I would read and share this with hundreds of thousands of other people?". Technology to me is pure magic. I don't understand any of it. That is, why it's so fascinating to me. I don't have to understand how a telephone works to make a phone call. I know how to use my mobile reasonably well (the thing I do least with it is making phone calls), I do marvelous stuff with my PC and even embrace new technologies (like my smart watch). I love future technologies and am excited to see what we're going to come up with in my life time.

How to Google and Google+
The one and only Denis Labelle has done it again.

When #GooglePlus first started, I was a little bit more than a month late to the game. It was then still an invite-only beta and by the time I heard about it and managed to get an invite, there were already quite a few peeps here. One of them was +Denis Labelle​ and he'd already made himself quite a name as the G+curator. Today I'm proud to call him one of my oldest G+mates.

No matter if you're an old hand at the platform or a goobie (G+noobie) you will always find something worthwhile in his excellently curated lists. Browse through this one yourself, learn and share, share share! Even if you can't learn anything new here, there are those amongst your followers who'll be grateful for this fountain of information.

Google+: Discovering, Sharing and Socializing the Web with You.___How to Google and Google+
The one and only Denis Labelle has done it again.

When #GooglePlus first started, I was a little bit more than a month late to the game. It was then still an invite-only beta and by the time I heard about it and managed to get an invite, there were already quite a few peeps here. One of them was +Denis Labelle​ and he'd already made himself quite a name as the G+curator. Today I'm proud to call him one of my oldest G+mates.

No matter if you're an old hand at the platform or a goobie (G+noobie) you will always find something worthwhile in his excellently curated lists. Browse through this one yourself, learn and share, share share! Even if you can't learn anything new here, there are those amongst your followers who'll be grateful for this fountain of information.

May the Plus be with you,
+Jens Graikowski​​​​​

This is like Xmas
Somebody upstairs really means me well right now.

Yesterday my +SteelConnect​ adapters for my Moto 360 arrived and today it looks like "The postman always rings twice" is very true. My new vintage watch straps turned up on my door step (new, vintage, really?)!

I consider the Moto 360 to be the most beautiful of all current smart watches anyway, but now it looks stunning even for a normal watch. Look how fantastic that watch strap goes with the vintage pilot watch faces! Can't get the stupid grin out of my face.

Now, this is pure beauty!
I'm often asked why I decided to buy the Moto 360, rather than the LG G Watch R. This!

A picture says more than a thousand words (and this one is cr*, because of the bad lighting). Yes the LG has the better battery life. Because of its smaller screen the resolution is slightly better (I'd rather have a bigger screen) and it doesn't have the "flat tire" (but a huge bezel instead). But just look at the Moto 360 fitted with stainless steel adapters by +SteelConnect​​​​​ and an anti-allergic brown leather watch strap. Compared to any other smart watch on the market, this is a looker!

Thanks a bunch to +SteelConnect​​​​​ for their fantastic adapters. Thx to +Alex Curran​​​​​ for making the most powerful watch face editor for Android Wear, which Imade this watch face with (ha... more »

Google gets my data, I get search and email and that. Help help, I'm being OPPRESSED!

Google may get my data, but they don't sell it with personally identifiable information. They use it to tell advertisers how many people of my demographic are using their services. In return, I get some awesome services for free!

There's an additional benefit to Google knowing my demographic: The advertising I see is actually of value. So while Google get to charge more, I'm more likely to click on ads I see.

The Formula 1 is back!
Ok, It's still a bit to go till the beginning of the season, but pre-season tests have begun.

My favourite F1 team, +Sauber F1 Team, has had their first tests in Jerez. According to them everything looks fine and I certainly hope that's true after the less than successful season last year. If you haven't circled them yet nor joined their very active community, now is the time to do so.

At exactly 09.00 hours Marcus Ericsson took to the track for the very first time. The car worked fine right from the beginning, and Marcus was able to complete 73 mainly trouble-free laps.

Ok, It's still a bit to go till the beginning of the season, but pre-season tests have begun.

My favourite F1 team, +Sauber F1 Team, has had their first tests in Jerez. According to them everything looks fine and I certainly hope that's true after the less than successful season last year. If you haven't circled them yet nor joined their very active community, now is the time to do so.

May the plus be with you,

Got WatchMaker?
If you've got the watch face editor WatchMaker you can use these watch faces on your Android Wear smart watch.

Bell & Ross Aviation Collection
Here they are all together, for those of you who might have missed one or three.

The "Bell & Ross Aviation Collection" is a series of watches modeled after aviation instruments, made by Bell & Ross to be auctioned off for a good cause at the "Only Watch" auction in Monaco.You can have them now all on your watch. I colour coordinated all watches now and adjusted fonts and other stuff to make it look more like a series. Of course they all feature dynamic shadows and lighting.

Suitable for all Android wear watches
The watch faces are made for my Moto 360, but work for all other watches too. There'll be a little work involved though. To lessen the impact of the "flat tire" of the Moto 360 I usually add a little shadow to the bottom of my watches. To make it easily removable it is an extra layer though, so feel free to delete it in WatchMaker. For all those of you with square watches, feel free to download this square frame from my Google Drive ( http://goo.gl/CnxnLL ) and place the round watch inside it in WatchMaker.

Special thanks to my LUA-script-go-to-guy +James Taylor, without whom some of these watches would've never seen the day of light. 

Here you have the +FaceRepo download link for each watch:

I hope you'll enjoy the watches and if you feel like it, why not take a pic of it on your watch (maybe with a nice aviation background. Be creative!) and share it here at the community.

The most powerful watch face editor around
If you're one of the lucky ones who already have a smart watch running Android Wear and are interested in making your own watch faces, look no further!.

I'm in love with my Moto 360 and I'm addicted to making watch faces for it. I've tried a few watch face maker apps, but they all pale in comparison to WatchMaker. Powerful, easy to use and with an extremely helpful community and developer it is still the best one out there. Give it a go!

Disclaimer: This app is addictive! I won't be responsible if you stop eating, drinking and suffer from sleep deprivation. Also don't blame me for decrease of social life, divorce and loss of friends.
