Jessica Wood11,521There was a request to share my The Walking Dead Circle. Here it is!For an incredibly complete of all TWD fans I highly suggest everyone follow our page +The Walking Dead Circle If you are not in my circle let me know if you would like to be included. Remember it is SHARED PUBLICLY so if you don't want random influxes of followers it isn't the circle for you.

Margie Hearron5,622I feel like sharing people This circle is filled with 50 wonderful fun people. I like to share people on GPlus. I remember when I got started on Plus, and I couldn't get anyone to share me out to others. I have the followers I have now mostly because of +Jack C Crawford, +Melody Lynn, +Hannah Roberts and +Peter G McDermott.  I've always been thankful when I get shared. I'm not in a lot of circle shares, so I understand what it's like to fight really hard to grow a following on G+.If you are new on G+, and need to get shared out to the community, just comment on this post or privately drop me a line, and I'll share you next times that I do a circle share. :-)2012-07-10 23:04:18511019
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
Karl Hughes7,360Geeks, Designers, and Interesting PeopleThis is my most watched circle, so I figured I would share.  These people tend to post the stuff that I read and respond to most often, so if you like technology, you should add them.Enjoy!2012-06-13 14:22:22446124
Alister Macintyre7,115Some people appear to be well informed on many topics, and like to share what they have figured out.  Here is a circle of prolific writers about tech topics.  You might want to put some of them in separate circles, to avoid being washed away in combination streams into a roaring torrent of information.2012-06-09 23:29:01244010

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 16:01:035005137103

Robert Scoble700,661Yes, it's a ghost town of TECH INDUSTRY JOURNALISTS AND BLOGGERS. Pay no attention to anyone from the Wall Street Journal who snuck onto this circle. Yes, this is 500 people, but they are almost all active.2012-02-28 03:05:115005536100

Randy Hilarski55I have not shared a circle in a while, here is my list of journalists and article writers. For the new folks this circle will provide your feed with lots of content.2011-11-16 14:46:39249001
John Mark Troyer900Here's my weekly share of my virtualization, cloud, and enterprise IT Circle. 415 people are in the Circle.How to use it: just drag onto one of your Circles and Google+ will happily create the union of the two circles - no need to worry about dupes.If you already grabbed it you'll need to grab it again. Google+ just takes a copy of my Circle for this share, so this week's Circle has more people in it that you'll want to add.How I add people: randomly. If you comment on this post, I'll add you. If I recognize your name from Twitter, I'll add you. If you post about VMware, I'll add you. If I'm having a bad day, I might not recognize your name, so please don't be shy and just ask to be added.Ethics of sharing this I'm unclear on the ethics. Most people didn't ask to be in this circle, and some people asked to be removed since they are not using Google+ to talk with strangers like we do on Twitter. My goal is to establish a community here, so I'll keep sharing this for now, but I may stop in the future.What these people share on Google+: anything. They may be IT people, but I did not pick them for their insightful sharing record. You'll get cat pictures and jokes as well as articles and blog posts about IT. That's life.2011-11-10 02:18:33415305

Robert Scoble158,666I'm sharing two circles today. This is the first half of my "Tech Journalist and Blogger" circle. The ones with last names that start from A-M. These are people who are thought leaders, reporters, journalists, bloggers in the tech industry. As with all my circles I try to remove people who aren't active (if you see any here, please let me know). And, if you know of folks who should be on these circles, please let me know, I'll add them.Robert Scoble shared a circle with you.2011-10-08 18:10:07341292544
Robert Scoble152,040This is the best circle for Apple tech news tomorrowThis will be the best circle to watch for info on Apple tomorrow (it's of 250 of the best tech journalists/bloggers/thought leaders on Google+). I will be in front of my three big screens pulling in the best data from around the Web. I'll be watching Twitter, Facebook, Google+ all at the same time. Plus, I'll be live on +Shira Lazar's show starting at 10 a.m. tomorrow with live reports.Anyway, if you want to see how the tech press covers this, follow this circle (make sure you put these in a new circle of your own so you can delete them if they get too noisy for you).I'm watching thousands more, too, and will share anything good.You will be flooded tomorrow with Apple news. If you can't handle this, just unfollow for the morning and everything will calm down pretty quickly after noon.Robert Scoble shared a circle with you.2011-10-03 21:26:3925067127124

How Well Does Today's Internet Can Be Used With Speeds Of 56K to 1MB?
How today's internet use worked or not worked was something I  wanted to know recently too as it seem was the case in other recent articles online going around. So, I network speed shaped my own connection to 56K, 108K, 128K, 256K, 512K and 1MB in a symmetric D/U ratio. The answers are:

- 56K: Nothing works as it should. You can only browse with Lynx or a Mobile Browser emulation that will still be incredibly slow. Apps you can connect to? IM, IRC, E-mail, RSS (no photos) if you use an app for them.  No media content whatsoever can be streamed no matter how low the quality. You cannot upload anything as uploading now times out.
-108K: Same as with 56K. No difference.
- 128K: Same as with 56K. No difference.

From 30mb/3mb on Coaxial Cable to 100mb/10mb on Optic Fiber
I have now been enjoying the change for 2 days now and the difference is just Immense. Now I can set up YouTube to choose highest quality available and it will stream instantaneously and non-stop. Even when the quality is 1080p-60fps and up to 4K. Netflix 1080p starts up right away too.  Wish I had Netflix 4K content available, but I bet that is also the same case.  Even downloading some 4K content is now also something I don't balk at. Be it 8GB or 24gb.  But also very important is that I now can finally fully use my OneDrive and MEGA cloud storage to backup my stuff online too without worrying about the upload failing. Needless to say, I am quite happy. Biggest jump in internet speed bandwidth I have done in 10 years. Previous one was going from 512K/256k to 2MB/1MB.  And this change felt just as or more noticeable.Next jump wi... more »

Next jump will probably be to go to 300mb/30mb in about 30 months from now.  Yet I doubt that  will feel as big of a jump as this one.___

- 128K: Same as with 56K. No difference.
256K: Same as with 56K, Only that for doing those same things now all feels fast.
512K: You can then browse with a mobile Browser emulation and have it to be bearable even with it loading the images. Browsing with a desktop browser is very slow but fine if you don't mind that websites will never stop loading or load up broken because of HD-ready image assets. You can only have 1 or 2 tabs open because of how some sites got updating content in them even if you don't see it.  You can now enjoy 240p quality YouTube videos with the Flash based player if you leave them to buffer for 30 seconds before starting to watch. What you can do normally in 3minutes will take you 15mins at this speed.
-1MB: Apparently the very minimum passable Internet speed for 2015 IF it is symmetric in its D/U ratio. You can now browse normally even if it will be slow and you can only really have up to 5 tabs open. You can do normal web based and app based SM, IM, IRC, RSS and E-mail.  YouTube in 360p is now possible. Even if it will still work better on the flash based player than the HTML5 one. 480p possible if you leave it buffering on the YouTube flash-based player for as much as it can buffer. 720p and up is of course most of the time impossible.  Soundclound, Deezer, Spotify, Grooveshark, etc are now perfectly usable too. You can also use your social networks and blog providers normally and even upload photos and audio to them normally. The same is true to any cloud storage provider. Even Netflix and Hulu work if you don't mind they giving an almost unwatchable video quality.  There is however internet usage still out of limits: PSN and Xbox Live. You would find they just connect and disconnect constantly.

Conclusions from this experiment?

Any internet speed below 5MB down - 1MB up  will not be enough to experience the apps and websites and supplemental internet use in your house the way they should be experienced.  And in this experiment I didn't even took in count the scenarios of a multi-user environment.. But needless to say bandwidth would be quite limited if there are more than 2 users at a time on a 5MB/1MB connection.

I think that the only positive thing from this experiment is that no matter how data heavy content, web sites and usage gets. The essential utilitarian uses for the internet still work as fine as they did 20 years ago.___

Really shocked how low the minimum specs for Windows 10 Phones and Windows 10 tablets will be. Almost baffling.  No wonder they decided to keep 32-bits around. Otherwise they could had not been as low.  Now there is really no doubt Windows 10 will be able to run on almost anything.

Rakuten Buys OverDrive
Makes all the sense in the world as a way to strengthen Kobo. And now there is really only two eReader and ebooks giants.  Amazon and Rakuten. Kindle and Kobo. In my case I prefer Kobo as you can actually load it with whatever you want.

Rakuten Starts Accepting Bitcoin
Starting with USA but it should extend elsewhere in time just like Overstock did. Rakuten also owns Buy.com, Play.com, ebates, Linkshare, Kobo, Viber and Viki so they are a HUGE deal. Recently they even also invested in Lyft . And if there is something that will force out Amazon's hand on giving Bitcoin a try even if they were to limit it to woot, is the fact that now 2 of their 4 competitors accept it.

Turns out things in the past 2 years were way way worse than I thought at GigaOm. Shocking to now know that they had raised not $22M but $40M USD in total and that they were in the red for the last 2 years! What the hell they were doing with the money? http://recode.net/2015/03/14/the-long-story-behind-gigaoms-sudden-demise/

ProTip - Peer2Peer Tipping For The Web
An On-Blockchain Flattr-Like Service for Bitcoin Addresses is something I have wanted for 2 years. Which is why I was very supportive of Flattr back when they momentarily had some Bitcoin Support. But an app that allows you to keep things decentralized is a great idea and I wholeheartedly support it.

Facebook Is Officially Shutting Down Friendfeed
Yes, it was still around and it will have been around a whole 5 years after being acquired by Facebook and put into Zombie Mode.  All in all it was around for 8 years. And it was popular during almost 3 year of those. Friendfeed was one of the pioneers of the format and model of the Social Messaging Network along with Pownce and Rejaw. And for which the most successful example is actually Google+. Even if at first Google+ was more or less a brazen rip off of Diaspora put into tech Google had from Google Buzz and Google Wave. Anyway, amazing it had been around this long in a 100% usable form.

Always thought it was a really bad idea for GigaOm to take on funding given the risk it would put on its future and because it then made it harder to sell the company.  Guess what? IT WAS. They are shutting down.

Now that Google+ has been giving another assurance that it will live for another year for sure. It would be great if Google stopped being a jerk and built a Windows Universal App for Google+. With that one there is no way that they could say it would not see enough users as it would work in W8.1/WP8.1 from day one and would later work in W10.  Which brings me to think that the best way to see if Google is serious about keeping G+ afloat is to see if they do build a WUA during 2015.

YouTube Is Officially Too Big
That would mean YouTube Viewership is now well over 1.5 Billion viewers monthly. No wonder that it was in 2013 when it finally got to profitability. 2014 must have been a massive year for YouTube in terms of profitability. 2015 should also be so.  Right now there is really only 1 YouTube-like big competitor and that is Youku.  Nothing else really is even worthy of being talked about in the same breath as YouTube.  That is of course a bad thing in the end. As I have argued the only way a YouTube competitor could arise would be by trying to do a repeat on the Hulu model. And that would require a cooperation of Microsoft-Yahoo-AOL to make it happen. Anything else will probably fail as the amount of content, reach and money you need to setup a YouTube competitor is just massive.

Video is playing for effects. In this case for counters. But spoiler alert, the answer is NO.  An even on the case of the Xbox 360 and PS3 versus the iPad. It will remain being the case for at least another two years before an Apple chip. Be the A9 or A9X + games done on Metal clearly beats the Xbox 360.  Right now the only things the current iPad can beat for sure is the First Xbox, the Wii and the 3DS.  And maybe even most PsVita games.  I am also sure iPad games will not reach the level of X1 games in less than 6 years. The reason being Optimization of the X1 alone is not even half way. However. I do believe it should be possible for iPad games to beat the Wii U games before 2020 and that will be impressive enough as it will take Windows PC Slates like the Surface another 5 years to match up the X1 of 2015 and be able to play the games at the same level of quality.

First Tizen OS Device Has Arrived And It is NOTHING like what was meant to be
Originally it was supposed to be able to run Android Apps too and to be excellent for those wanting to develop Web Stack based Apps on it just like FirefoxOS or OpenWebOS. The result is that in its first released device of a 2.0 version release, it has neither of those things. Pathetic all around as even FirefoxOS 2.0 looks like a better platform.

I bet these releases is only to prove it actually exists and to be able to say it got released before Windows 10 for phones.  But Ubuntu is so late on this it will it find it hard to beat FirefoxOS and TizenOS devices. Forget about it even competing with anything else yet. Could be worse though. At least it will no longer be vaporware.

GTA V Has Sold 45M Copies So Far
And it is projected to do 5 Million more. So it will sell 50M units MINIMUM. Now, the obvious criticism would be that that don't makes it the best game. True. Only the very best game of its kind by far.  Like I have said before, only Elder Scrolls Releases come close to GTA and they are on a whole other genre. I am actually waiting for the PC version to start replaying it. But I am happy to buy it Twice given the PC version will look a lot better than what I already played and can be played in a completely different way.

Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered 
I am do giving this a try for sure since I do liked the game. Originally played the First Xbox version. On what is actually different in this version:
- Topped up res at 720p with a Cinematic Widescreen fixed cut.
- Touch controls support added.
-  PC controls support added.
-  Uncensored
-  Cleaned Audio
And that is it. It is after all a remastered version not a remake. The only problem with this release is that it will make you want Heavy Rain and Beyond Two Souls PC releases once again.

It just recently started to be reliable. So, I guess that is why they finally did the switch. But the YouTube HTML5 player for some reason is still not as reliable as its Flash Version.  To think it took the HTML5 video players 5 years to get to be as reliable as the Flash versions, specially in Windows.
