Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/1)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca   #sharedcircles   #circles   #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:25:36432623256CC G+

Peter Vogel24,368ICT / Ed Tech CircleIt's a long weekend here in Canada (we celebrate Thanksgiving well ahead of our neighbours to the south). Here is a circle of people with a passion for technology in education and who have shared that enthusiasm here on Google+.

Consider this a Thanksgiving gift from Canada. 2012-10-07 00:18:36420315CC G+

Peter Edenist4,879Worth Following Circle - Hard Curate this week!!!Amazing people in this circle. Following a Hard Curate, I have dropped the circle size to a much smaller one. This one is going to be notified for once since I want to know if you are reading this!... reason for dropping? 1. Lack of support (reshares or mentions links to other posts).2. Moving down the value chain on the relevance list.3. Lack of engagement.I am very sorry, I need to curate. Over time, some people become inactive, and have to clean my circles. If I have dropped you inadvertently, please let me know and I will add you back. Please reshare to support my initiative #worthsharing   #worthit   #worthwatching   #topcircles   #publiccircles   #publiccirclesproject   #publicsharedcircles   #public   #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circle   #circles   #reshare   #reshared   #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   2012-08-29 13:47:0313931820CC G+

I kept this circle largely free of celebrities, pages, and organizations, so these should (nearly) all be actual people. Enjoy!By the way, topic-wise, it's a bit of a potpourri, but with emphasis on technology, science, progressive politics, skepticism, and other fascinating things.Note that I don't always agree with everyone in this circle, so don't take this as an endorsement of their ideas...merely that they tend to be thoughtful when presenting them.2012-07-03 14:29:094671718CC G+

I've gone through and weeded out some of the inactive users myself in order to stay under the 500 person limit. These guys make up a big portion of my stream and never fail to keep me informed about awesome shit.You may also be asking why I didn't sort them out into sub-geek categories? The answer to that is because I'm not your damn secretary :-)Just check'em out :)2012-05-26 19:20:2947711714CC G+

Best Hotel Booking Sites, Game of Thrones Beer Tasting, & Promposals
In this Spring-themed episode, our exclusive analysis of hotel booking sites uncovers a surprise winner; the boys evaluate three Spring beers, including the new Game of Thrones beer, left in their Easter basket; the growing teen trend of Promposals is explained, explored, and approved.  With their signature, eclectic approach, +Clinton Whitmire's and +Chris Porter's beer tasting covers a lot of ground about both beer and HBO's online content strategy.  One of the hosts makes up for not having attended prom with a Promposal of his own.

Recently there have been a lot of rumors that +Google is working on a home screen replacement for Chromecast.  While I think this is a great idea, I have to admit that I cringed a little when I heard the news because I’ve been working on a prototype for a very similar concept. And although this is still in early stages, I thought I would go ahead and share it with the world to help me determine whether or not I should continue developing it.

Let me be the first to say that I really like the default Chromecast home screen.  The images that Google picks from the amazing collection of Google+ photographers are breathtaking and far better than anything my friends or I are capable of creating. 

But since day one of owning a Chromecast I’ve wanted to be able topersona... more »

Fire TV Review, Whiskey Aging, & NCAA Unions
+Clinton Whitmire and +Chris Porter reveal the truth about the Amazon Fire TV, discuss home-aging spirits in oak casks, and debate pay for college athletes.  In addition, a discussion of HBO's "Girls" informs us a little about Whitty's taste in girls, as does a brief discourse on Belle Knox.  The blindfolded sherry taste test is a show highlight that reveals Whitty's lack of smell and why that might not be such a bad thing. #fthebs

Auto-Upload Question
Anyone know of a way to transfer a video auto-uploaded to Google+ to YouTube without uploading all over again?  It seems to me like any video that comes out of Google+ should be able to be linked to a YouTube account of my choosing.

HD Video of Earth From Space
Whoa! The technologies we've been dreaming about and seeing in movies for years are finally starting to become a reality.  

Skybox sandwiches their HD satellite video between static satellite imagery (underneath) and a MapBox map layer (on top), based off of OpenStreetMap.  The results are pretty awesome!

If the video below isn't enough, they also have a pretty impressive gallery of satellite imagery:

Home Theater Tip
Magnetic latches can be a quick and inexpensive way to hide your home theater equipment. You can use an IR repeater or mesh speaker cloth to make sure you can still control the equipment without having to look at it.

Superhero Phone
I'm really digging the way this black Bugdroid case (http://goo.gl/Bhg6dG) looks on my bright red Nexus 5. I find the blindingly red color much more attractive as a secondary accent color than as the primary shade. Now it looks like something a crime-fighting superhero might carry.

Or am I off my rocker?

HTC One Camera Won't Focus
The rear camera on my HTC One can't focus on anything more than about 10 feet away. The phone is rooted and I've tried lots of different ROMs and keep getting the same results. The front camera still works great. Has anyone else experienced this or know ways I can fix this, or is my camera defective?

AirCast - Play Any videos on your Chromecast

I spent a couple hours yesterday reverse engineering the Chromecast protocols. Great success! I am now able to get around all the developer whitelist restrictions. I'm actually not using the Chromecast or MediaRouter SDKs at all anymore.

AirCast is an Android app that lets you share videos from your Gallery, Dropbox, or Drive, straight to your Chromecast enabled TV.

It's straightforward to use, share, play, and control the stream via the remote in the app (or notification area).

And here's an APK!
http://download.clockworkmod.com/test/AirCast.apk

The APK will self destruct in 2 days; just looking for bugs and feedback right now. Any crashes, etc, should be accompanied with logcats.

Issue list:

Ok, here it is. The first public beta of #CheapCast . I decided to put this up for free since I believe it could potentially useful to a whole lot of people. If you like it and it works for you, feel free to just use one of the Donation options within the App.

I will also make the Source Code available in the near future (I'm still cleaning it a bit up). Just watch this space: https://github.com/mauimauer/cheapcast
I hope to further improve the App and welcome anybody who wants to contribute.

In my first PoC-Video I've showed CheapCast with YouTube, I've just uploaded another video showing Google Music streaming to a Nexus 7 running CheaCast: CheapCast - First Alpha, Showcasing Google Music

As this is the first public Beta please expect things to fail. I appreciate your feedback. Please log your issues/bugreportsh... more »

Chromecast and RSS Video feeds

I wrote my first Chromecast app. Send anything in your gallery to your TV via the standard share button. Images and movies (at full framerate). It works like magic.

Also looking at sending music and playlists.

I'll do a video later, but I'm not allowed to distribute the APK, as that is against the terms of use of the beta SDK for the time being.

Chromecast First Impressions
Okay, I've only had the Chromecast for a couple of hours, but here's the first take from an audio/video integrator:

1) It gets really, really hot.
2) My IOGear HDMI splitter doesn't recognize it.
3) My Onkyo TX-SR605 A/V receiver doesn't recognize it.
4) The power adapter is awkward and makes it difficult to plug in to a surge protector without consuming multiple outlets.
5) The bulge on the back of the device almost necessitates the use of the HDMI extender (thankfully included).
6) If you don't have an HDMI switching receiver, there's no way to get audio to your amplifier outside of running digital optical or analog RCA out of your TV (less than ideal, especially if your TV is in a different room from your equipment).

I want to love this product, but I don't yet. In fact, it feels a bit... more »

I've been waiting on this functionality for a while now. Now if someone will just write an app that lets me mirror my Android display via AirPlay, I will finally achieve dual platform digital nirvana.

UPDATE: This AirAudio app is awesome.  You can also use the microphone on your phone to send the audio to your AppleTV. So your phone just becomes a wireless microphone for your audio system.
