A note from Mr. Obvious:

If Google were currently plotting the demise of Google+ -- as some are now speculating, given reports that G+ Photos may morph into a standalone service at I/O next week -- the company probably wouldn't have bothered creating, implementing, and promoting the intricate new Collections feature for the G+ social stream this very month.

A hint of steel for your smartwatch

Nice-looking new minimalist face here by +Dale Drechsler. Tapping the weather icon brings up detailed weather info along with your watch's current battery level.

This is a face for Watchmaker, so you'll need either the free (https://goo.gl/fbxsd1) or premium (https://goo.gl/ijnTXg) version of that app in order to use it.

Once you have Watchmaker installed, open the appropriate link below from your phone, download the face, then select to open it with the Watchmaker app. That's it!

For Moto 360: http://facerepo.com/app/faces/details/dd-steel-14d76af067c
For any other round watch: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5vc38ahg11ppv80/dd-steel-v101-round.watch?dl=0

R.I.P. Ripples

Remember Ripples? They were interactive charts that made it easy to see how any post or Web page had been shared on Google+.

As recently as yesterday, you could load them either by clicking the down-arrow on a G+ post or by using a bookmarklet to view the Ripples for any external page (see https://plus.google.com/+JRRaphael/posts/Sn1zUBPXiWG). 

Today, though, the option is gone from the G+ dropdown menu and the URL from the bookmarklet leads to a 404 page. I was surprised to notice that when I tried to view the Ripples for an external article this morning. Turns out Google quietly announced the discontinuation of the feature in a community post last night:

Thanks for your support as we continue to make Google+ a simpler, more streamlined experience for all.
(https://plus.google.com/+googleplus/posts/dbVpERPaqYA)

Damn shame. Maybe the feature wasn't widely used -- I honestly don't know -- but it was an incredibly handy way to see how a post or page was spreading on G+ and how exactly it was being shared. I looked at it in one way or another almost every day.

But alas, Ripples' time has evidently expired. So farewell, old friend. May you ripple happily through the rivers of the digital beyond.___

Android Wear support is on the way to Shazam

A new way to identify songs via your smartwatch -- and get a glimpse at lyrics, too.

The update doesn't seem to be live in the Play Store yet (for me, anyway), but hopefully soon.

I've been using Sony's TrackID app for this same purpose. Will be interesting to see how the two compare.

Sudden realization: The obnoxious Samsung whistle sound bears a striking resemblance to Woody Woodpecker's laugh.

Compare: 

(1) Samsung: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvewGmGO06Q
(2) Woody: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s637-5A9Gro

That might at least partially explain why that sound is so damn annoying.

Simplicity ("it just works") vs. complexity (lots of features and options)

Yet another example of the fascinating reversal of roles between Google and Apple when it comes to smartwatch design and philosophy.

Think about it: If you saw these two platforms a few years ago, you would have assumed Apple made the former and Google made the latter.

Hi. I collect.

After much contemplation and consideration, I've created a bunch o' collections to which I'll now be sharing my various G+ chatterings. These categories may evolve over time.

If you're already following me, this shouldn't really matter, as you'll just continue to see everything I post like you already do. But if you aren't following me -- well, then you probably aren't reading this. But if this message somehow reaches you telepathically, you can now follow specific areas of content I share instead of following it all, should you be so inclined.

Yay for options!

Anyone else notice that hashtags are no longer showing up on G+ posts? Neither automatically nor when they're typed manually into a post.

Wonder if those have been intentionally phased out (due to the arrival of Collections, perhaps?) or if something weird is just going on.

A quick LG G4 camera comparison

The same shot, taken seconds apart:

1) In Auto mode
2) In Auto mode with HDR force-enabled 
3) In Manual mode, saved as a RAW file
4) Image #3 following some (intentionally aggressive) post-capture processing

Just a quick taste of the spectrum and the types of things that are possible in different configurations. Many more samples and detailed thoughts on the way soon.

Looks like Trusted Voice just made its way to my Moto X. Neat.

Can't see any real reason to activate it, personally, as I'm pretty well covered with Trusted Devices, Places, Face, and now also On-Body Detection (which I've been trying out over the past few weeks) -- but I love the fact that Google is coming up with so many interesting ways to make security more manageable.

My favorite response to criticism of smartphone software:

"Well, you can root it, anyway, so who cares? Why are we even talking about this?"

It's the age-old philosophy of "This factor doesn't matter to me, so it shouldn't be discussed at all." Combine that with the folks who say there's no point in discussing a phone's physical form or design since they're just going to put a case on it -- and those who say we shouldn't waste time talking about camera quality because, OH-EM-GEE, who takes pictures that matter on a smartphone, anyway? -- and I think we have an obvious solution on our hands:

Henceforth, all smartphone reviews will consist of bulleted spec lists and nothing more.

Huzzah! My job just got a heck of a lot easier.

My favorite response to criticism of smartphone software:

"Well, you can root it, anyway, so who cares? Why are we even talking about this?"

It's the age-old philosophy of "This factor doesn't matter to me, so it shouldn't be discussed at all." Combine that with the folks who say there's no point in discussing a phone's physical form or design since they're just going to put a case on it -- and those who say we shouldn't waste time talking about camera quality because, OH-EM-GEE, who takes pictures that matter on a smartphone, anyway? -- and I think we have an obvious solution on our hands:

Henceforth, all smartphone reviews will consist of bulleted spec lists and nothing more.

This was how you subscribed to the Microsoft Bob email service

Yup -- by mailing in a physical postcard. No joke. 

I propose we implement a similar system for leaving comments on websites today. That'd seriously cut down on the riff-raff.

Nice -- you can now use the Android Device Manager "Find My Phone" feature right from the Google search box!

We’ve all been there — you’ve searched under your car seat, tossed around the sofa cushions and you still can’t find your phone. If you know where your computer is, you can now ask Google to find your Android phone from your desktop. If the pesky phone is hiding nearby, Google can ring it for you — or you can see it on the map if you, say, forgot it at the bar. Just make sure you’ve got the latest version of the Google app!___Nice -- you can now use the Android Device Manager "Find My Phone" feature right from the Google search box!

First-gen Moto G on sale for $25 (!) off-contract right now

That is an insane deal, even if it's a year-old phone. Just note that it's a Verizon Prepaid model, so it's presumably CDMA-only and won't work with a GSM carrier. Could still make for a solid Wi-Fi-only device for around-the-house use, though.

Seems to be a short-term sale, so jump on it fast if you want one.

This is getting to be a real problem -- and something I'm seeing far too often lately (on multiple devices, both with my account and with others): numerous Play Services-related errors piling up in the notification panel, accompanied by an authentication-related error when trying to get into the Play Store. Talk about a maddening loop.

The issue usually seems to resolve itself with a few attempts of opening and closing the Play Store app (and/or a few minutes of simply waiting it out, maybe while a new Play Services update downloads in the background), but man -- that is not a good user experience or something anyone should ever see.

This system is interesting for a couple of reasons. First, obviously, its price. But second, it has the same internals as the upcoming Asus convertible Chromebook -- the $249 Chromebook Flip.

Here's what it's like to use.

Handy new feature on one of my favorite Android Wear watch faces: an option to get a notification when your watch is on the charger and reaches 100%.

Love it when an already-awesome app just keeps getting better.

"The Apple Watch ... is kind of slow."

"Sometimes apps take forever to load, and sometimes third-party apps never really load at all. Sometimes it’s just unresponsive for a few seconds while it thinks and then it comes back."

"It’s also surprisingly heavy."

"[The] side button is extraordinarily confusing."

"In the first of many moments where the Watch felt underpowered, I found that the screen lit up a couple of ticks too slowly: I’d raise my wrist, wait a beat, and then the screen would turn on."

"There’s no particularly great digital face, and there’s no ability to load up your own watch faces or buy new ones from the store."

"There’s no master switch to turn all notifications on and off, which is a huge pain."

"By the end of each day, I was hyper-aware of how low the Apple Watch battery had gotten."

"You only get a charging cable, which is lame. For $700, you should a nice charging stand, like you get with the $249 Moto 360."

"There’s virtually nothing I can’t do faster or better with access to a laptop or a phone except perhaps check the time."

"There’s no question that the Apple Watch is the most capable smartwatch available today."

If you want the best possible camera or the longest possible battery life, the M9 isn't going to meet your needs. But if you can live with a phone that's decidedly average in those regards, HTC's new One will give you an experience that's delightfully extraordinary in others.

My in-depth review of the HTC One M9. This phone may be familiar, but it isn't forgettable.
