On Track Tips | Wiser Sites2,265*Is Your Content More Interesting than Your Customer's Wife?*  What’s this all about? It’s about our interview this week with special guest @110720576611232766643  and a point he makes in his keynote about how in social media, our posts are not just showing up next to other businesses, but they are sandwiched between school, community, family, kids and wives. The bottom line is you need to be more interesting than your customer's wife in order to get them to click on your post. So how do we do it? That’s another question altogether.  Another topic we’ll touch on is the bi-directional highway of online / offline for brick and mortars. Of course there’s a need for businesses to get out of the Yellowpages and get onto Google and the question is, “How do we make that transition into the digital space?” But something that too often gets overlooked is the value of having people talking offline about what they discovered online; hopefully it’s your brand they're talking about. We're going to be speaking to online businesses and we're going to be speaking to brick and mortars. We're going to be speaking to YOU.  Make sure you show up this week and ask your questions.

On Track Tips | Wiser Sites2,265*Budget your Health with the Power of Practice* This week we are getting back into our 4-part Budget your Life series. This is Part 3 and our topic is Budget your Fitness (Health) with special guest @100115151299388347151. Lisa teaches people how to use the Power of Practice to create radical breakthroughs in their health, wealth and happiness. She is an entrepreneur and a teacher, trainer, a coach, and an author. We’re going to be taking a deep dive into the Power of Practice. Practice has been an integral part of Lisa’s life since she was 8 years old. She was a dedicated soccer player and loves to run.  As a runner, she understood that mental training is just as important to performance as physical training. She started getting the results she wanted when she started practicing in a ‘certain way’.  Budgeting for your health is about choices. You need to choose to value your health. And stop being over-committed, overworked, overwhelmed, and overweight. But this won’t happen overnight. Lisa will share 3 keys to making choices for a new way of being IN AND WITH your body. ⇒ Shifting from a 'workout' mentality to a 'practice' mentality  ⇒ Creating a partnership with our body  ⇒ Taking Responsibility and being proactive, not reactive One of Lisa’s favorite quotes is “It’s not about doing certain things. It’s about doing things in a certain way.”   Join us for this discussion about the Power of Practice.  Lisa has a special offer on her products for On Track Tips viewers of this episode, available here - http://jtw.bz/Breathe29.

On Track Tips | Wiser Sites2,265*6 Vital Steps to Using a Google Calendar* This week we are getting back into our 4 part series on Budget your Life. In part one we met with our three experts, @116569643508850916988 who talked about budget your time, @100115151299388347151  whose topic is Budget your Fitness, and @104267556228949747305 who will discuss Budget your finances.   This week we are diving deeper with Phyllis Khare into how to Budget your Time.   Phyllis is going to present some strategies from her Google Calendar System, Time Bliss Me that literally transformed my life. http://jtw.bz/TimeBliss  It’s an innovative way of using Google Calendar that will give you clarity, productivity and less stress.   Does this sound familiar? You wake up stressed. You go to bed stressed. You live in a space of “lack of time” overwhelm, feeling like you've forgotten important things you need to do, feeling two steps behind – all the time…   Phyllis used to feel this way. Big time. She was forced into finding a better way of managing herself. It was either that or go crazy – or completely give up on her career!   With her back against the wall, she developed a new way to use Google Calendar to schedule her day… and it ended up transforming her life, and mine. http://jtw.bz/TimeBliss   She’s going to share 6 Steps to Using a Google Calendar. ⇒ Why a To-Do list is a flawed system ⇒ Why Checklists DO NOT work ⇒ How to use Google Calendar for a mobile office  ⇒ What does it mean to have a reality based experience with time ⇒ Time-sucking tasks you need to STOP doing right now ⇒ Time Management and outsourcing See you this week on Get on Track, Stay on Track.  Oh! and don’t forget to push the BIG red button http://OnTrackTips.com ====================================================== Start asking questions now AND invite 2 friends!

Daria Musk3,832,676*Expand to read the story and learn how to join live!* Three years ago to the day, I stood in front of my computer - a guitar in my hands, songs in my heart, fingers trembling - about to press a button that said, "Hangout". I was still waterlogged with rainy nights of lugging my amps into tiny clubs and tears from the not-knowing-what-would-happen to my dreams. That night, when I hit "Hangout" you saved my dreams, you saved me. Your faces popped in. We sang all night. Six hours later my heart was six million times bigger and I would never be the same. Every year I want to celebrate that day. I want to thank you face to face. I want to meet back at our special place and sing your praises. It's time for Hangoutiversary III.  *PLEASE, BE CELEBRATED* So please, meet me on July 16th. Right here, inside the place where we had our virtual first date. Comment back and let me know that you're planning to come, I will organize special circles of you all, so we can rotate the 10 seats and meet and meet and meet again. I'll sing our songs of celebration. I'll sing new songs of adoration, to you and this crazy world that gives us a chance just when we think maybe it can't. Come with your hopes and your dreams to be amplified and your updates and your friends and families and fantasies. Let's sing 'til our throats go weak and dance in front of computer screens, like the silly beautiful people we know ourselves to be.   *HOW TO HANG* In case you're new or rusty all you have to do to join this Hangout is:   ✪ RSVP a big fat *yes* here. ✪ On Wednesday, July 16th come back to this page when the Hangout starts (6PM Eastern US Time). ✪ You can watch or click "join" to on my page @100974258168375166691! ✪ Don't for get to comment and let me know if you want to join and around what time. I'll be sure to circle you and invite you when you're web-camera-ready! ✪ Come with song requests, stories and even a "dream to amplify". The theme of this hangout is #amplifyyourdreams  cause that's what you guys did for me. You turnt it up to 11! *SRSLY, MESSAGE ME* Send me a private message or chat or comment to me here if you'd like to arrange a special invite or if you're new and want to join the family and need some tips for getting in. I think I'm going to make invite circles for each half hour, so let me know when you want to join. Everyone's invited. It's really the greatest possible gift, just to let me sing for you and get to know you again and again and again.  *SPREAD THE LOVE* Share this invite too. Let's grow the family. Any friend of yours is a friend of mine and deserves some showcased virtual face-to-face time. *XO, Daria* PS. *CONNECTED BY* This concert celebration is being supported by our new friends at CO-OP Connected Credit Unions.

We will focus on discovering ways to promote a strong music culture on Google Plus and in helping independent musicians reach a wider audience. During our first show of the season, _Music On The Plus: Past, Present, Future_, we will take a look at how the music scene on Google Plus has evolved, how large (or small) it is today, and what the possibilities are for the future. To do this, we have invited several guests to our panel, including: @107707592416977920764  Since Google+ went live in June 2011, Tom Rolfson has been a leading visionary regarding the group video chat hangout technology. He invested in the very first @100974258168375166691 concert which took place July 23, 2011. That landmark event brought Tom’s know-how to the right place at the right time. Tom was the first person to sell concert tickets online (in 1994 before Ticketmaster) and sold his first dot com business in 1995. He is a serial entrepreneur, an investor, a producer, a marketer and an innovator. Boardwatch Magazine said he was one of the first 100 people to make a living online. He was just one of a handful of those who saw the potential of combining business to social media and cutting edge technology.  @101052845941647002594  Chris is a musician/songwriter for the Grand Rapids, MI based band @101439746092215731211. Always an early adopter and technology enthusiast, Chris was among those who received an early invite to Google Plus, Ingress and Google Glass. He is a writer at TechDissected and provides guitar lessons online via Google Helpouts.  @107024462526027907806  Mark is a Hangout On Air enthusiast, promoter and consultant. He launched a very popular website, www.hoashows.com, which is a showcase and calendar for Google Plus Hangouts On Air. He also provides advice and consultations via Google Helpouts to help HOA hosts improve their shows. Mark ran a website dedicated to help promote indie musicians for several years and now blogs for www.MyMusicHangout.com in his column "The Broadcast".  @100451775464181355098  Drummer, songwriter, pianist, singer of alternative rock project Electric Mute (@118419533895257515329) and social media mentalist from London, UK.  Watch Live on Google+:  My Music Hangout on YouTube: https://youtube.com/user/MyMusic On The Plus: Past, Present, Future2014-06-04 19:02:0087

Jason T. Wiser22,457*Storytelling for Business Building with Chris Brogan* There’s a lot of talk lately about storytelling in business and for good reason. Stories help people to understand and relate to your business journey. Where did you get the idea? What was the first thing you did when you realized that you had a good idea? what worked? what was your biggest mistake?  This program is produced by http://ontracktips.com/storytelling-business-building-chris-brogan/ It’s the answers to these questions that interviewers love to ask because viewers want to experience the journey of the successful business owner. They want to imagine themselves walking this path and living this dream. But aside from telling your rise to the top story, what other stories can we tell as business owners? what other stories do people want to hear? That’s why I have invited @118320665823821681206  to “Get on Track, Stay on Track” because Chris is passionate about small business and he understands the value of telling story for branding, for marketing, for business. *Chris is the Author of* "Trust Agents", "Google+ for Business" "The Impact Equation" "Social Media 101" and the soon to be released "The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth" http://jtw.bz/ChrisBr (affiliate link) Some of the questions I’m going to be asking Chris are: ⇒ Other than your rise to the top story, what day to day stories can we tell in marketing? ⇒ What are some of the best examples of companies that are using storytelling in business today? ⇒ How much of your personal life do you share in your business story? If this interests you, start asking questions now AND Invite 2 friends! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------   Did you click "Yes" on the event invite?

Lisa Engles7,088When was the last time you received a true honest-to-goodness heartfelt hug? Hopefully it wasn’t too long ago because science shows that a brief hug… as little as 20-seconds can increase oxytocin, the powerful hormone in our body that fortifies bonds with our loved ones, decrease cortisol secretion which in turn lowers stress and can also reconnect the mind with the body.    In this weeks episode of The Power of Practice, I'll be interviewing +Lisa Marie Keller  physical therapist and founder of Design Your Health who will share with us the art and science of hugging.    * 5 Reasons To Give (and Receive) More Hugs * What Type of Hugger Are You? * How To Give A Hug That Heals * How To Know If You're Hug-Deficient “We need 4 hugs a day for survival. We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance. We need 12 hugs a day for growth.” -- Virginia Satir *The Power of Practice* is a weekly google hangouts on air show dedicated to giving you the tools and resources you need to turn stumbling blocks in to stepping stones-- In these 20-minute episodes, +Lisa Engles interviews guest experts from across the world to ask them one question: "What one practice can you share with us that can create radical breakthroughs in health, wealth and happiness?"

Lisa Engles7,088Link to join the hangout :  http://youtu.be/bxPKDKkAn3k Do you ever find yourself saying, "I wish I knew how to meditate, but I just don't know how to get started." ?   Most of us have heard that daily meditation is good for us.  But we don’t feel like we 'know how’ to meditate… often we might find that quieting the mind is easier said than done and quickly give up on the idea of sitting for 10 or 20 minutes per day to meditate. This week my guest expert Warren Broad, clinical hypnotherapist and behavior specialist will be teaching us a very simple practice called Hypnotic Meditation that he’s used for the past 10 years to help his clients access the magic of meditation, but without all the struggle. Please join us this Thursday at Noon PST/ 3pm EST for a live hangout on air.  Simply bookmark this page and when you come back at the start of the show you'll see a link here as well as the youtube video player to join the hangout.

Ronnie Bincer115,203Want to know what to call that thing? Hangouts are more than they used to be so we will do some name claiming of what certain parts are to help you 1) understand what they do & 2) explain hangouts better to others. The NEW video of the Hangout presentation is now here... the prior broadcast had some sound sync issues so it has been re-done. Please share this *Updated Video* with those that could benefit from the show. Here is the update video link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qsQqV1SRZE *This HOA Discussion/Show will be all about calling names.* We'll be calling out the parts and pieces that make up the new Google Plus Hangouts and giving them names. We'll also discuss how the parts and pieces interact with each other and how things work now since the changes happened Mid-May 2013. Join us if you have ever wondered what that 'part' is called or what the _thing that holds that other part_  is best named. If you create any training or teaching materials (or write posts, books, articles, etc.) you know that we need to have consistent names for parts. I've been busy building loads of training materials and constantly need to know what to call that 'thing' so I'll be sharing with you what I call it and why. You may join into the discussion in the comments or in the filmstrip if you like, just let me know you'd like to be considered for inclusion. If you are in the 'filmstrip'... you'll need to agree to a talent release which will  allow me to use your image/likeness, etc. as part of some training materials I'll be offering in the future.

Daria Musk3,832,676*WILL YOU BE MY VALENTINE? ❤* _Come for a song and a virtual kiss and let's share the love!_  My relationship with you G+niuses was literally love at first sight. That first Hangout filled up with your gorgeous faces and my heart's been yours since. On Thursday, Feb 14th let's get romantic and revisit the scene where it all started... I'll bring the love songs (and rockin' anti -love- songs too), the roses and the chocolates... You just bring _you._ If you've got a hot date you can show off your candle-lit night and treat your sweet to a live love song. If you're flying solo, I'm your wing-girl. Love is in the air! Hangout On Air that is ;)  *You are loved.* ❤ Share this invite with someone(s) you love!! XO, Daria _Ps. Find your global time zone start times here:_ http://bit.ly/V7kacp _Pps.

Donna D’Errico is a full-time, single mom of two (no nannies!).  For nearly a decade, she also raised three stepchildren full-time as well.  D’Errico does not use any domestic help, a rarity in Hollywood.  She proudly cooks, cleans, does household laundry, washes windows, tends a vegetable garden, and everything in between – herself. Beautiful, sweet, and funny, Alabama-born D’Errico is the epitome of a down-home, southern gal.  But don’t underestimate her – she’s tougher than she looks.  D’Errico is educated, well spoken, and fearless.  After spending weeks in a hospital ICU with a near-fatal MRSA infection in late 2010, Donna decided to do what she has dreamed of doing since she was eight years old: climb Mount Ararat in search of the Biblical Noah’s Ark. This past August and September 2012, Donna embarked on a dangerous expedition up Mount Ararat in Turkey to search for the Biblical Ark.  Due to the danger involved in climbing Mount Ararat, including the threat of kidnap by local rebels, Donna chose not to bring a film crew for the documentary she is currently producing about the search.  A surprisingly skilled videographer and photographer in her own right, Donna handled all filming and directorial duties throughout the entire two weeks that she and her climbing partners were on 17,000' Ararat.  After climbing to an altitude of about 12,000’, Donna lost her footing and nearly fell to her death.  Incredibly, though injured, D’Errico refused to give up.  Trained in emergency response and first aid, Donna treated her own wounds, dusted herself off, and carried on with the expedition and documentary. While in Turkey, D’Errico was also searching for Donald MacKenzie, a Scotsman who disappeared on MountHangout on TWANGOUT with Donna D'Errico Actress, Explorer and Documentary Producer2012-10-18 02:00:00111

Do you wonder why your posts don't get the same interaction or response as they do on Facebook or Twitter when you use the same format on Google+?

Consider just 2 things:

1. Google has an ass-kicking algorithm to detect and filter-off spam in Communities. Racing about and repeatedly posting the same keyword stuffed post just gets auto-filtered to neverland and then is neverseen.

2. MILLIONS of members of Google+ have quit Facebook because they were sick of spam posts containing no information and were just link-bait ie: #TheBestWeightLoss   #TheEasiestWayToMakeMoney  by clicking through. Google+ users EXPECT something useful in the post and are more likely to click through if you give them value and earn trust with respect and by investing just a little time to create a genuine post.

Dear +Niantic Project +Niantic +Pokémon GO, as people are already talking about CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS against you for being injured, robbed, crashing their cars, etc while playing Pokemon GO, please consider me as witness to attest that the game Ingress with play requirements almost identical to Pokemon Go is perfectly safe when played with common sense and obeying the law. Having played the game since the first week of it's launch over 3 years ago I have observed many hundreds of people playing and seen or heard stories of people being in car accidents or injured. None of them were caused by the game itself, but rather people not paying attention to their surroundings, driving recklessly or being victim of other drivers not paying attention and hitting Ingress players who were driving perfectly safe and obeying all applicable laws.

Dear +Niantic Project +Niantic +Pokémon GO, as people are already talking about CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS against you for being injured, robbed, crashing their cars, etc while playing Pokemon GO, please consider me as witness to attest that the game Ingress with play requirements almost identical to Pokemon Go is perfectly safe when played with common sense and obeying the law.

None of them were caused by the game itself, but rather people not paying attention to their surroundings, driving recklessly or being victim of other drivers not paying attention and hitting Ingress players who were driving perfectly safe and obeying all applicable laws.

This game play is no more liable for causing accidents than using a phone, tuning a radio, switching CD's in a player or a dozen other activities one might do.

I would urge you to start a petition or create a list of thousands of Ingress players who've got years of experience in playing an augmented reality game with no harm to them and able to attest the game has NEVER "Made someone hurt themselves" but rather the negligence of inattentive players being the cause.

Next we'll see Nike accused of causing every injury to a runner who's twisted an ankle or been hit by a car. People need to be accountable for their actions including minors who need to be taught the same by their parents.

How about it +IRDABEERMAN +Ian Q +Bill Folk, do you agree? Can you tag a few others who have been playing for years as well?___

Meet Sarah Gotstein - the physical therapist who's most recently been treating my neck using the Graston technique. In the video you will see her using it in action. While you see the skin quite red and irritated, the minor pain is worth the results.

I know most of my friends on G+ "Get It" when it comes to video marketing, but here's some stats that might help you to convince others.

Hangouts are a great tool, if you haven't checked it out look at Zoom.US as it's got some great recording features Hangouts don't. And finally, if you need a good offline video company I can recommend many around the U.S.

Total +SUBWAY Restaurants Rant Ahead! Can anyone do worse?

It's not often I'd bother with a formal complaint with a company, but +SUBWAY Restaurants has just proven the most inept at handling customer issues of any company I've ever seen. This incident was a joke... first the credit card reader didn't work and the cashiers indicated they didn't expect it would since they have had many problems. Then I was charged for the bag of chips (Not a big deal, but I wouldn't have purchased them except they were the weekly special per my phone text messages so I figured "Ok, why not?"). Then as I was traveling and 50 miles from home I got to my destination to eat only to find the dressing packets were expired months earlier.

Now it gets better. I go to their website on May 2 to let them know about the incident. No response from them in over a week, I contact them via Twitter. The Twitter response was for me to call. I call they tell me it's the local restaurant's issue. Can you say "circle jerk"?

1. Bad card reader - slight inconvenience pay cash.
2. Charged for chips that were supposed to be free. (So much for text promo)
3. Expired dressing (Roast beef on Italian w/o dressing - BLAH dry)
4. Contact company via website no response for a week.
5. Contact company via Twitter - told to call 800#.
6. Call 800# and told it's local franchisee's issue and he's given 2-3 days - when told franchisee didn't contact me corporate says they can do nothing.

What do I want? From them now, nothing. I'll be eating at Cousin's.___

Do you wonder why your posts don't get the same interaction or response as they do on Facebook or Twitter when you use the same format on Google+?

Consider just 2 things:

1. Google has an ass-kicking algorithm to detect and filter-off spam in Communities. Racing about and repeatedly posting the same keyword stuffed post just gets auto-filtered to neverland and then is neverseen.

2. MILLIONS of members of Google+ have quit Facebook because they were sick of spam posts containing no information and were just link-bait ie: #TheBestWeightLoss   #TheEasiestWayToMakeMoney  by clicking through. Google+ users EXPECT something useful in the post and are more likely to click through if you give them value and earn trust with respect and by investing just a little time to create a genuine post.

A great piece by +Christina DesMarais! I'll admit I've found myself guilty of one or all of these things, particularly at times I'm fatigued or dealing with pain. But these aren't excuses, they're just other factors I need to be aware of when making decisions and taking actions to get or keep myself on the path I choose... as opposed to falling into the 'sabotage' she references.  

Have you found yourself in one or more? How do you spot it, how do you get out of it?

Hint: They really did have more than the 9-10 songs that still make any radio play.

You know how you sometimes stumble onto a service provider you just have to tell others about? Here's the best place I've ever found for #CellPhone  repair. 

I brought an out of warranty Samsung Galaxy S5 in for a camera replacement. They did the job with same-day turn-around and for about half of what +Samsung Mobile repair offered to do it. (This is an extensive teardown & re-assemble labor intensive with a risk of breaking parts as you go into the phone.) 

Having now met and spoken with Dean Thompson I'd highly recommend trusting him to repair your phone... even if you had to FedEx it from outside the #Brookfield  (SE Wisconsin) area. 

Save the link below so you can reference it or make a mental note to reach-out to me if you forget the who/where, I'll keep his current contact info handy.

One of the most informative posts on SEO I've seen in a long time. Read it, learn from it. 

“The internet has become more competitive and it’s simply getting more difficult to rise above the rest. Forget about blaming changes to Google’s algorithm — there are just a lot more people creating great content and it’s just getting harder to get found. According to this data compiled by Qmee from PCMag data, there are over 800,000 websites launched every day and over 2,000,000 blog posts written [not to mention hours of video and tons of tweets] — and that’s in 2013 data!”___One of the most informative posts on SEO I've seen in a long time.

Just a quick note of thanks and apologies as I haven't been able to reply to everyone for all the well-wishes.

The surgery went well, I've got a pretty zipper that runs the entire length of my neck and will need to wear a brace for 3 months. So... while you won't see me in any Hangouts - know that I'll be watching many of you expecting to see lots of great programs.

Thanks again for all the awesome and genuine wishes/offers to help and be well!

More great (and some amusing) features for Hangouts!

Hangouts: now smarter, faster, and a lot more fun

If you’re like me, you want to stay connected with friends and family without technology getting in the way. Hangouts lets you focus on the people you love talking to, so your conversations feel as in-the-moment and natural as they do in real life.

Today we’re updating the Hangouts app for Android to make it easier to express yourself, and have more fun along the way:
    - Like the saying goes, a sticker is worth a thousand words. From penguins to pirates, koalas to cats, 16 new sticker packs (and more to come!) have tons of ways to say what’s on your mind.
    - Give your video calls some extra flair with video filters including sepia, vignette, black & white, and more. Just swipe during a video call to try these new styles. 

We’re also making it easier to start conversations with friends and family:
    - Confirm your phone number so your friends who already have your digits can more easily find and message you in Hangouts.
    - Know when your friends are ready to chat right now with “last seen” timestamps, so you never have to type, “You there?”

Hangouts is also introducing the start of something new -- smart suggestions right in your conversations:
    - When you’re trying to meet up with friends in real life and someone asks, “Where are you?”, Hangouts can now understand what you need and offer to help.  You’ll see a one-tap option to share your location right in the conversation, without you needing to hunt around in a map, drop a pin and send your position. 

Try all the new features by updating the Hangouts app on your Android device  (http://goo.gl/v7FTL - rolling out to the Play Store over the next few hours). Note that “last seen” timestamps will roll out in waves over the next few weeks, so you may not see this feature for all your contacts right away. Today’s updates will also be available on the Hangouts iOS app soon. 

P.S. We’ve added a few other surprises to this Hangouts update, but we’ll let you find them on your own. Woot!___More great (and some amusing) features for Hangouts!

New to Inbox ?  Take a moment to read +Shawn Willden's excellent review and tips for more power and efficiency.

#Inbox   #Tips  

Google Inbox

Here's my take on Inbox, after living with it for a while... and getting it configured correctly.

My first impression was that it was really clean, and I liked the consistency between web and mobile views, but I found it difficult to manage the large volume of e-mail I get on my work account (my personal account is a Google Apps domain, and Inbox isn't yet available for Apps accounts). It was taking me far too long to get through my e-mail, so, reluctantly, I went back to the regular Gmail interface which felt complicated and cluttered in contrast, but had the singular virtue that I mostly managed to keep up with my hundreds of daily e-mails.

Then I ran across some tips for how to use Inbox, spent some time thinking about it and setting it up and now I have to say I think it's awesome. It's so awesome that my inbox is often completely empty. I've always liked the idea of keeping a clean inbox, conceptually, but never really been able to do it.

Here's what makes the difference:

1. Snooze. The lack of snooze was the single biggest reason I haven't been able to keep a clean inbox in the past. I didn't know "snooze" was the missing killer feature, but it was.

The reason is that there are always some e-mails in my inbox which I need to respond to, but can't address right now, either because I don't have the necessary information, or because they require work but I have other priorities right now, or whatever. So I had to leave them in my inbox as reminders until I could get to them. With Inbox, I snooze them to an appropriate time, so they're gone but will come back later when (hopefully) I can address them.

This "gone but not forgotten" state can be overused by procrastinators (like me), but, frankly, if I'm going to procrastinate I'll do it regardless. This way having a bunch of procrastinated stuff in my inbox doesn't cause me to fail to notice other stuff I really need to get to because it's hidden in the clutter. That happened to me, and not infrequently. With snooze I can make a specific decision about when I'm going to address something, and it gets out of the way until then.

2. Bundles. In particular deferred bundles (my name for them). You create a filter (which Inbox makes super easy, more on that below) that applies a label to some set of messages, then have Inbox "bundle" messages with that label together. That's nice, because it lets me deal with related messages all at once. Since I know the context (e.g. from the OpenSSL mailing list), it's easy to quickly scan the subject headings to see if I care about any of them.

I could do this with the old UI, of course, but it requires deciding when creating the filter whether I want the messages to show up in my inbox or not. If I don't have the filter "archive (skip the inbox)", then they all show up as individual messages in the inbox. If I do have the filter archive, then they don't clutter the inbox, but I have to click on the label to see them.

This always meant that I ended up not paying attention to non-inbox messages because I had to go look for them, so labels that might contain fairly important stuff had to stay in the inbox. Priority Inbox helped with that by picking out the stuff I was most likely to be interested in. But sometimes it missed important things, and they got ignored.

With bundles those messages show up in the inbox as a single entry, so I get reminded to look at them, but they don't clutter my inbox. Even better, I can tell Inbox not to show me a bundle every time a new message arrives. Without that option, bundles which receive many messages per day keep reappearing throughout my work day, meaning I can't just deal with them in large batches. With it, I set those bundles to only appear once per day. So my inbox silently accumulates them and then shows the bundle at 7 AM. Each morning I look at everything that has accumulated since the prior day, pin the messages I care about and bulk-archive the rest with a single click (or tap). Then I can address the pinned messages.

This method is so efficient that I've moved all of my low-priority mailing lists, the ones I used to just automatically label and archive to glance at once in a blue moon, into daily bundles. I read and respond to more of my e-mail, but spend less time doing it. In fact it's so much more efficient that although Inbox does support automatic prioritization (by moving stuff into a "low priority" bundle), I haven't even bothered to figure out how that works yet.

With the old UI, I leaned heavily on automatic prioritization, and that sometimes screwed me. Not often, because it's pretty darned good, but sometimes. I accepted that as the cost of doing business because without prioritization my e-mail load was unmanageable. With Inbox, my e-mail is manageable even without it, just by bundling related messages and letting me handle them en masse -- but I'm actually looking at all of it, at least the subjects, which I didn't really do before.

Deferred e-mail bundles are the bomb. Seriously.

3. Simple filter construction. One of the things that most annoyed me about Inbox when I first looked at it was that I couldn't figure out how to build filters. I'm sure they'll add that to the menus eventually, but I found it really annoying to have to jump back to the old UI... and then I discovered that Inbox not only provides a method for creating filters, it's dramatically easier and much faster. So much that filter creation has gone from being a chore (and, for many less-technical people, a black art) to so breezily easy that I do it without thinking about it.

How do you do it in Inbox? You just move a message to a label. Then Inbox asks if you always want to do that, and you click "Yes". Done.

Of course, this method doesn't have the power of Gmail filters, but nine times out of ten I don't need that much power, and Inbox is really quite good at building the filter that I would have built. For the cases where it isn't, no problem, just go to the old UI and edit the filter. I haven't yet had to do that, though.

4. Mobile/web consistency. I'm actually surprised at how much impact this has, but it really does, at least for me. I do most of my e-mail in a web browser on a 24" monitor, rotated 90 degrees so I have more vertical space. When you have a lot of e-mail to deal with, the screen real estate is valuable. With the Gmail web and Android UIs, though, I found I never really used the mobile e-mail client much. It just didn't fit my normal e-mail workflow. Having nearly identical interfaces on all devices, however, means that I can and do manage a lot of my e-mail from my phone or tablet now. It just feels natural and seamless to move back and forth.

This, of course, is the fundamental point of Material Design. Interfaces should be consistent across different devices and screen sizes, and MD is carefully designed to make that work seamlessly. It works.

The bottom line: I'm a fan of Inbox. I get more done, faster, and I feel like I'm in better control of my e-mail than I have been for quite a while. My work e-mail, at least. We'll see how it works for my personal e-mail when Apps domains can start using it. I think it will be just as good there.

Check-out +Ronnie Bincer's review of how the Interstellar movie's Hangout On Air was run.

It's a great example and great insight on the production of HOAs. 

Interstellar Movie Release Hangout on Air - nice production
It appears that Google setup and ran this promotional Hangout on Air (HOA) broadcast using various aspects of what HOAs can offer.

They must have used some high end cameras and video switching equipment for the main cast, and also allowed some standard use of the HOA Filmstrip to bring in some additional video guests during the show.

They also had the Showcase, Applause & Q&A apps running at the same time. To me the most valuable for the production was the Showcase app since viewers can use the links shown to get more info, purchase tickets and more.

In addition, they used the YouTube Video Editor to trim off a bit of the start (the countdown timer they had added at the very beginning of the broadcast) such that the initially shared and promoted HOA Video URL would not need to be changed.

This is a great demonstration of how the special tools offered to us can work for very large audiences... which is my guess why Google is pushing these extra tools (Showcase, Q&A and Applause) on us so forcefully, but for most of us we do not have such a large audience when we run our HOA shows.

The good news is if you know what to do you can disable the extra tools and still run a great show that involves live viewer's comments making for a very engaging Live Interactive experience.

Many people in the Hangout Mastery membership are asking for a training session on how this event was run, so we'll provide some tips on how the filmstrip was incorporated into the broadcast and address other questions as well. Join us in the membership area to learn how you too can run HOA shows efficiently and with all the extra effects. Visit www.bit.ly/HangoutMastery for details.

Color me foolish... I really didn't know or think that +Verizon Wireless as a trusted ISP would have the audacity to modify my URL requests. They claim to not share any personal identification with the "Precision ID providers" but nefarious ways this can be used without that are immense. 

Verizon, stop this practice immediately or you will not only lose a customer but have one more name to the list of what will surely be massive when the class-action lawyers jump on you for this one. 

IF you're a Verizon customer and want this stopped, please share this and act now before the practice spreads. This is one more place to take a stand before they say "Well, everybody does it so it's not wrong or can't be reversed."
