Jens “Google Plus Yoda” Graikowski575,264_*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_! I'd also like your ideas on how to make the _Formula 1 Race Hangout_ more interesting. _*Please guys, share this event!*_ Let's give the whole G+ community the opportunity to join our F1 circle and this week's _Formula 1 Race Hangout_!

martin shervington1,447,788Have 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” Graikowski575,264Yeeehaaaw! 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” Graikowski575,264HANGOUT 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. I'd also like your ideas on how to make the Formula 1 Race Hangout more interesting.Formula 1 Race Hangout - Melbourne/Australia2013-03-17 07:00:0048

LG Watch Style
An underwhelming piece of wearable.

Since there probably won't be a #Moto360 3rd gen I'll have to look elsewhere for my next #smartwatch and I had great hopes that my favourite tech company #Google would come up with something I could give my heart too. Looks like my heart will have to wait for something else to come along though. Luckily I'm not in a hurry.

This thing has no heart rate sensor, no #NFC/#AndroidPay, no #GPS, and no #LTE. It looks cheap and that at $249,-? Really, +Google​?

No more Google Home on Amazon?
Looks like Amazon is not selling the Google Home anymore.

I bought my #GoogleHome on Amazon Germany. It was the only place I could get it. Actually I'm not aware of any other supplier in Europe where you could get the voice controlled smart assistant. Looks like that is a thing of the past too now, though.

I can't find the Google Home on any #Amazon website worldwide. I know there are other places in the US where you can get it, but that leaves us Europeans with nothing. I wanted to get at least one more for my house, but I have no way of laying my hands on one now.

Was it too much of a competition for Amazon's own #Echo?

Do you know of any other place where to get it in Germany, Spain or the UK?

Shop with Google Home
The voice controlled smart assistant just got a shopping feature.

#GoogleHome is still in its infancy and to keep up with the #AmazonEcho it still has a lot to learn, but nobody can say that Google and third party developers are not working on it. In many ways it is already better than its main competitor and now you can shop with Google Home just like with the Echo. I have just one issue with that.

I do understand the need to monetise the device, but my priorities would be on more basic features. Is #shopping really more important than for example being able to set a reminder via voice? For #Google it obviously is, for me not so much.

Portal to the centre of the earth
Covão dos conchos

The Covão dos Conchos is a giant mystical water hole belonging to a hydro-electric dam. The tunnel was built back in 1955 to ensure the water diversion from Ribeira das Naves to Lagoa Comprada in Portugal. The 1519 meters long hole creates the illusion that the dam is broken, similar to a portal to the center of the earth.

Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge: Android 7.0 Nougat update to be released by end of February

And not one minute too soon, I might add. It's not really the OS update I'm after for my #GalaxyS6edge, but the #GoogleAssistant, which I will hopefully be able to install (as I mentioned here: https://goo.gl/wXCN4n ) once I've got the update. Then I only need the voice controlled smart assistant on my #Moto3602nd (which should arrive with #AndroidWear 2.0 very soon, as mentioned here: https://goo.gl/t5cFYz ) and I'm all set up on all my #Android devices. That's all I wanted ever since I had my first experience with the Google Assistant on my #GoogleHome.

The flying cars are coming
Dubai will look even more futuristic with passenger drones in the sky.

Many, like my G+mate +Mike Elgan​​​, don't believe that we're anywhere close to having #flyingcars, but it looks like #Dubai is proving them wrong (though passenger drones are not strictly speaking flying cars, since they don't drive on roads).

I believe, the only way that flying cars are going to become a reality is to make them #autonomous. It'll be easier to get the necessary permits for pilotless #passengerdrones and everybody could "fly" them, since there's no actual piloting involved. And that is exactly what Dubai’s Roads & Transport Authority are planning to do.

I'm going to keep a very close eyes on this project, that's for sure.

Any Colour You Like
No, this is not about the song by Pink Floyd.

Up to now the #GoogleHome is mainly made for those good guys in the US, but you can get it in other corners of the world, like the UK, as well. What you can't get outside the US (to the best of my knowledge) are the different coloured bases. Don't fret, just make your own.

Google Assistant for non-Pixel phones?
A new alpha version of the voice-controlled smart assistant hints at the app coming to more phones.

#GoogleAssistant works so much better than its predecessor #GoogleNow that to me it's the best thing #Google has come up with in a long time. I have it on my #GoogleHome, will get it on my #Moto360 soon and might get it on my #Samsung #GalaxyS6 too. Yes, according to #AndroidPolice an alpha version of the app suggest that it might come to more devices than just the original #Pixel phones. That would be great news indeed. The alpha also hints at a "Recent topics" feature and "Lite mode", payments in Google Assistant and the ability to download pages for offline search results.

Brace yourself! Android Wear 2.0 is coming!
The new update for Android Wear devices promises to be more exciting than I originally thought.

Though #AndroidWear 2.0 was announced in May 2016, #Google took its sweet time to finally send the developer preview out and that has also been finished with now. At least that should mean that we'll see the new OS on our watches very, very soon. First impressions were rather underwhelming ( https://goo.gl/6wLZ8y ), but I have to admit, I had to change my stance on that considerably after finding out what Google really has in store for our little wearable darlings.

Android Wear 2.0
The post will be divided into sections as follows:
Compatible smartwatches | New features

Compatible smartwatches
So let's check first if it's worth it for you to carry on reading. No sense in wetting your appetite, if your watch is not among the lucky ones to get AW 2.0.

The first watches to get the new OS are, of course, the new releases by Google itself, better said, the smartwatches they're making in collaboration with #LG, the #LGWatchStyle and #LGWatchSport. But there are plenty of already existing #smartwatches by all kinds of manufacturers that are about to get an eagerly awaited overhaul. Here is the list:

➢ #ASUSZenWatch 2 & 3
➢ #Casio Smart Outdoor Watch
➢ Casio PRO TREK Smart
➢ #Fossil Q Founder
➢ Fossil Q Marshal
➢ Fossil Q Wander
➢ #Huawei Watch
➢ LG G Watch R
➢ LG Watch Urbane & 2nd Edition LTE
➢ #MichaelKors Access Smartwatches
➢ #Moto360 2nd Gen (Yes!!! I'm a happy customer)
➢ Moto 360 for Womenoto
➢ Moto 360 Sport
➢ #NewBalance RunIQ
➢ #Nixon Mission
➢ #Polar M600
➢ #TAGHeuer Connected

So, hang in there!

New features
Judging by the final developer preview in the video Android Wear 2.0 will feel like an entirely new OS rather than just a mere update. Heck! We'll get the new #GoogleAssistant on our watches! If that won't excite the geeks among you, I don't know what will. But there's other interesting stuff as well.

Major overhaul for the UI
As the video shows, the #UI is practically brand new. No more cards, a keyboard, a circular app drawer, configurable complications (you can now display data from other apps), the hardware button gets more use, etc etc. I find it all far more intuitive. Especially owners of round watches, like myself, will love the new app drawer. See for yourself.

Standalone apps
In an attempt to make smartwatches more of an independent device Google provides them with standalone applications now. As part of cutting the umbilical cord between #smartwatch and phone, we can expect a separate app store where we can download apps straight to the watch without having to install them on the phone. That should make a huge difference for all #iPhone users (are there any of those along my followers?)

Stay fit with Android Wear 2.0
#Wear 2.0 can detect when you start walking, running or cycling and opens the relevant application automatically. And since your #watch doesn't have to be tethered to your phone anymore, you can track your exercise and even listen to your music playlists while your phone is safely at home. Your still have to do the exercise yourself though.

Google Assistant
Now, that is what I was waiting for. Ever since I got my #GoogleHome I've been a great fan of the new #GoogleNow successor. One of my pet peeves is, that up to now you can only get it on Google's own #Pixel phones (though there are tricks around that, as I reported here https://goo.gl/p1NHtT ). Having the voice-activated personal assistant on my #Moto360 2nd gen will make me very happy indeed.

Summary
All in all this update is really exciting (Yes, I know. I had to change my tune). Our smartwatches will become easier to use, partly untethered from our phones and get loads of new features. IMHO, Google Assistant alone is a killer feature. For a very explicit write up about all that is new, head over to this article at http://wareable.com: https://goo.gl/w32HI7 .

Let me know what you think about the all new Android Wear 2.0! Does it meet your expectations? Were you hoping for more?

Oh please, make it happen
Firefly could get a reboot.

I must've watched the only existing entire series of the #SciFi TV show 5 or 6 times already and I'm not ashamed to say, I'll probably watch it another 5 or 6 times. IMHO it's the best SciFi TV show ever made and I'm not alone with that. I could never understand, why it was so prematurely cancelled. So, let's bring it on again, shall we?

How can we convince #JossWhedon to take Fox up on their offer to reboot #Firefly if he can fit it into his busy schedule? And what about the rest of the cast? Will #NathanFillion, #MorenaBaccarin, #AdamBaldwin, #SummerGlau, #JewelStaite, and Co hear the #Browncoat's pleas? What can we do, to make that happen? Any ideas?

YouTube Go beta is here: save videos to watch offline
This has been designed with areas of bad Internet connections in mind, but it might come handy for frequent travelers too.

With the #YouTubeGo app (still in beta) you can #download vids for #offline use, but it has some draw backs. The highest resolution seems to be 360p which might help those with slow #internet speeds but should keep those who want to download #YouTube videos for use on planes from making use of the app. But hey, it's still in beta, so send feedback and #Google might reconsider.

#ZTE launches first Android Wear watch
And it'll come with 3G cellular connectivity.

And it doesn't look half bad. Since +Moto​​​​​ decided to get out of the #wearable market I'll have to look for another alternative eventually. I'm very much a superficial kind of guy, so my #smartwatch has to look good. Showing it off is everything, right?

I love my #Moto360 2nd gen and I won't replace it anytime soon. Apart from the fact that it has a decent battery life (the only thing I hated about my 1st gen) the design is just gorgeous. So, what will be next? I quite like the #FossilQ Founder, but it doesn't have a heart rate sensor, so that's a no-go.

Real wood and leather covers for Google Home
A gorgeous way to customise your Google home assistant.

There have been several wraps for #GoogleHome around for some time, but none of them looked particularly appealing to me. They covered the lights on top of the device and had a plasticy feeling to it. Now #SlickWraps came up with some real wood and leather covers for the home assistant device. Not exactly cheap, but if they deliver to Europe I might just go for some wood.

Attorney General Sally Yates fired.

This is going to be my last post about Donald Trump, for one simple reason. Anybody who hasn't realised yet, that it was a huge mistake to vote Hitler II into one of the most powerful offices in the world, can not be helped. Just like in the Third Reich there will always be deranged people who will support leaders who promise them a solution to all the alleged problems they perceive. Never mind that history has already taught us where that leads.

Trump gets rid of the opposition any way he likes, promotes hate and racism. Builds walls, physical ones and in the minds of his supporters. He's mentally ill and will pull the US and the rest of the world into deep shit. But there will always be those who don't mind. The Germans of Nazi-Germany said they didn't know about the going-ons.

That was a load of crap then, but it is more true so nowadays in the age of information. The Americans do know, but they either don't care enough or actively support it.

I hope that the American people will wake up and impeach that president of theirs or dispose of him any other way before it's too late. For all our sake. But I've lost hope. "Every nation's got the government it deserves", they say and that is probably the case here as well.

Due to current events ...
I recommend this book to all my US followers (but not only to them).

Read "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich" in its entirety and you'll understand many of the current going-ons in the #USofA and other places in the world!

How was #Hitler ever allowed to rise to such great heights? What did he offer the German people, and why did they tolerate, even revere, his #dictatorship? The scheming, manipulating, hedging, debating, waffling, double-timing, delaying, posturing, intrigues and full-on violence are already partly repeated in the modern day #Trump era United States.

Many believe the #Nazi nightmare is a thing of the past. No it isn't! It's only been asleep, but current events in Germany, the US and other countries prove that it's still very much alive.

What's the best HUD app?
There are several head up display apps for Android, but none are really convincing.

I just ordered this little gadget, the Mpow Universal #HeadUpDisplay. As I do when I get new toys I go on a research rampage, trying to get as much information as possible. In this case I needed to find #HUD apps. Well, that proved to be more difficult than I thought. There are a few around, but none of them are anything to write home about. Lack of features and ugly or impractical UI designs prevent me from going apeshit over any of them.

My favourites so far are #Hudway (Play Store: https://goo.gl/ovNDyR ) and #NavierHUDNavigation Premium (Play Store: https://goo.gl/VxO1sW ). I might write a proper review of the one that I like best once I've had the time to mess around with them.

What are your favourite HUD apps? Are there any really good ones? None of the ones I can find seem to have features like music or phone calls. What I'd really like is an app with #AndroidAuto functionality, but with a head up display. I know some stuff won't be possible, mainly because you lose your touchscreen by placing the phone on the HUD device, but I guess quite a bit could be substituted (and even improved on) with voice commands. I wonder if an #Android app developer would pick this up and create one. I wish I could do it myself, but as everybody knows, I'm severely technologically challenged.

Android Wear 2.0 developer's preview
iOS support, new navigation drawer for apps and support for NFC Host Card Emulation.

I was expecting more from the newest version of #AndroidWear. Though that's purely subjective. Compatibility with #iOS devices just wasn't high on my wish list, a new app drawer might be nice, but not essential and where I live there's no Android Pay and such, so adding #NFC abilities doesn't do it for me either. I can imagine that one (or all) features will be of some interest for other users.

Good riddance
The end of an era. And about bloody time, and all.

Ecclestone might have made F1 what it is today, but in the last decade the greedy little dwarf has been more of a nuisance than anything else. I've been waiting for this day for a long time.

Love must be wonderful

I'm not sure if I should feel sorry for #MelaniaTrump or if I should just say what I say to the whole US of A, "you made your bed, now sleep in it".

Unfortunately I have to post this again 😐

I will block everybody who posts that damn' rainbow image!

For a few days now people find it funny to post a mile long multi coloured image. Apart from the fact that it takes half an hour to scroll past on my phone it also seems to make Google+ crash. Since after several days of that crap I fail to find that funny anymore I will instantly block anybody who posts that image!

Time until Trump leaves office

If the world is lucky, he gets impeached before that. If we're unlucky he'll plunge us into a 3rd world war and will never leave until he's dead, just like Hitler (who, let's not forget, was originally democratically elected).

Google is listening
And I don't mean "big brother" style. I mean, they listen to you.

I hardly ever use a PC anymore. I'm almost entirely "mobile only". I therefore have very little experience with the "new" #GooglePlus Web layout but obviously I see all the discussions about it. No matter if you like it or not though, one thing is clear. #Google is listening to what you have to say about it. And they take constructive critique seriously. So, if you have a pet peeve with the design, let them know via the feedback feature!

Some of you might rightly recognize that items on this list were present in Google+ Classic but were added to the new Web preview over the past fourteen months. Why? We completely re-wrote the Google+ Web app from scratch. Rather than rebuild every nook and cranny that developed over the five year history of Google+, we started with a clean slate of the features people used the most (based on our data & research). We then released this preview version to collect feedback and find out what people missed the most of what we left out.

Not every feature/setting has returned but we have been continuously listening and making updates (as seen above). And we’ll continue doing so. To make your voice heard, please send us your ideas/issues using the Send Feedback menu item. Thanks~___Google is listening

400 Obama Accomplishments so far, With Citations

"In 2008, we elected the most progressive president in history. And regardless of the negativity, when you actually look at the record, there has been a lot of progress since January 20, 2009. If you’ll recall, when he took over the reins of power, the economy was in free-fall and we were practically a world laughingstock. That is no longer the case."

Though that has changed now again with the election of the #TweeterInChief Donald Trump, it is still worthwhile highlighting Obama's achievements amongst all the negativity.

Feel free to discuss in a civilised manner. All hate comments or comments with rude language will be deleted. Repeat offenders will be blocked!

Get the Pixel's Google Assistant Working on Other Android Devices
Ever since I got my Google Home I've wanted the terrific Google Assistant on my phone as well.

#GoogleHome runs the amazing #GoogleAssistant, the next generation of #GoogleNow. Unfortunately the only phones that come with GA up to now are Google's own #Pixel. There is allegedly a way to get the Assistant working on any Android phone running Marshmallow or higher. Since I'm happy with my #Samsung #GalaxyS6 I'm not prepared to buy another €800 phone. I haven't seen the need to root a phone for ages, but to run Google Assistant on my Galaxy I might go for it again.
