Jens “Google Plus Yoda” Graikowski580,966_*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_!

martin shervington1,273,036Have 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” Graikowski580,966Yeeehaaaw! 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.

Jens “Google Plus Yoda” Graikowski580,966HANGOUT 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.

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.

Donald Trump diagnosed as a “Textbook narcissitic personality disorder.”

"Narcissism is an extreme defense against one’s own feelings of worthlessness. To degrade people is really part of a cluster-B personality disorder: it’s antisocial and shows a lack of remorse for other people. The way to make it O.K. to attack someone verbally, psychologically, or physically is to lower them. That’s what he’s doing.”

He still has me worried. A people who voted a warmongerer like George W. Bush into office twice is capable to elect this maniac too. He's dropped in the polls by 12 points which seems to be the light at the end of the tunnel. Let's just hope that light is not a train.

I'm a simple mind
And sometimes I wish everybody would be more simple.

I've just spend more than an hour going through my G+ stream. Right now Sanders, Clinton, Trump and Co. are taking up loads of real estate there (though it has become unnaturally quiet around Trump for a few days). And there's one thing I really don't get. Might be because I'm a simple mind.

There are those amongst the candidates that are undoubtedly in the pocket of the 1% (I don't even have to name anybody, because be honest. You read this short description and you knew straight away who I was talking about). Than there're others who are racist, woman hating, warmongering lunatics (so, who could that be?). All these things are well known. My stream is full of it. And then there is one who's different. One they can't dig out any dirt about. One who's been on the... more »

One who's been on the side of the common man all his political life. One who figures for free tuition, affordable health care, against wars, against corrupt bankers and all his adversaries can think about is how "impossible" his ideals are.

There is a man who wants change. A man who fights for the masses and even those highly intelligent amongst my followers can do nothing better than ridiculing his ideas instead of using their intelligence to find ways to make his ideas possible. I don't even understand how Sanders isn't already leading all polls by a huge margin. You should all be voting for him and then use your considerable intellectual resources to help him make his dream come true! But I can see it coming already. You'd rather vote for Hillary "Miss Wallstreet" Clinton or Donald "Hitler" Trump, because a reassuring lie is so much easier to believe than an inconvenient truth.

I don't get it. But then, I'm only a simple mind.

Don't let that walking mucus bag become president

See what #DonaldTrump 's own family has to say about him. This might be a hoax though, but I don't care, since it is so close to the truth it might as well be true.

Tesla Model III
Fully #electriccars are becoming more affordable and practical.

There won't be any free #Tesla charging stations on my little rock in the Atlantic in the foreseeable future, but I'd have the advantage that 320 km per charge would take me once around the whole island. I would never have to recharge the #TeslaModelIII more than once a day.

With $35k this car moves towards my price range and it is gorgeous too. Now, if they'd just make a #convertible version of it.

Gabor Balogh inspired

It's been some time since I made a new watch face. Thing is though, I only make watch faces that I want to wear on my Moto 360 myself and to be honest, in between my own amateurish creations and the designs of the amazingly talented watch makers in the #WatchMaker community, I had everything I needed. I seem to come back to the same watch faces over and over anyway. But I saw the #GaborBalogh Smartwatch-Concept ( https://goo.gl/BELczu ) some time ago and I thought, well that is a project I'd like to tackle.

This is quickly becoming my daily driver, because it provides me with all the information I need for work and private life. A tap on the icons will take me to the corresponding app on the watch. Google Keep, weather, my agenda and a heart rate sensor.

Best Super Bowls of all time
I'm currently watching those "old" Super Bowls to get a feel of the game.

I was always interested in #AmericanFootball, but due to not being able to watch games live on my little rock in the Atlantic (or only with difficulties) I never really got into it. I have a very good friend, a Cuban called +J.A Rico​, whom I used to watch games with, but he left me all alone and moved to Miami. Since then I basically forgot about the sport. Until I visited family in Wales over Xmas and my brother-in-law (with his Sky Sports subscription) got me into it again.

I now found a way to watch games here, but to be honest, I find the rules confusing. To get a feel for the game and prepare myself for #SuperBowl50 I decided to watch a few old games. I'm using this list as a guide. I might as well watch the best games, right?

The are quite a few games on #YouTube, so if you need your dose of football, have a look at this list, type into the YouTube search e.g. "Super Bowl XLIX full game" and chances are it's on there somewhere.

What games do you think I should watch? Doesn't have to be a #SuperBowl. What game do you think was the best of all time?

How does #BB8 work?
The mechanism of #StarWars little adorable #android.

I just love that little fellow. I was thinking about getting the #Sphero for Xmas, but what put me off was the price and the size. It is just too small. So, you might want to build your own. There are quite a few videos on YouTube of people who have done so or at least tried, but I think this website might give you a good insight on how to make one work. If you ever build one, let me know how it goes.

The Song Remains The Same

I had a dream. Crazy dream.
Anything I wanted to know, any place I needed to go

Hear my song. People won't you listen now? Sing along.
You don't know what you're missing now.
Any little song that you know
Everything that's small has to grow.
And it has to grow!

(Excerpt from The Song Remains The Same by Led Zeppelin)

Very few people in this world follow their dreams and I have tremendous respect for everybody who does. +HEATHER FAY​ is an exceptional artist and a long time G+friend of mine and she follows her dream. Why don't you come along?

BE PART OF MY NEW RECORD!
I'm making a new record and I'd love for you all to be part of it, My Loves!  The Girls From Ruby Falls (my new band) is a dream project of mine. I'm collaborating with incredible musicians to bring this project/story/album to life....but I can't do it alone.  

You all have always been so incredibly supportive of my musical dream and have been integral in my journey.  If you'd like to contribute to the making of this new record, please head over to our indiegogo campaign and pre-order our album. There are some super cool PERKS too!!

As Always,  THANK YOU!

All My Love,
Heather

p.s.- If you've been wondering where I've been lately...I've been busy dreaming up this new project!

p.p.s - It's never fun to ask people to donate to an artistic endeavor...especially when there are so many people and charities needing help.  Thank you for never making me feel badly for reaching out to you all for support.  I hope that my music, in some way helps to make the world a better place...even for a moment. :)

Caerphilly Castle
This is Wales' biggest #castle. An impressive #fortress.

It was my first time at #CaerphillyCastle near #Cardiff in #Wales and I have to admit, I completely underestimated its size. I figured two hours would be enough to explore the place. How wrong I was.

I'm pretty happy with the way the #photospheres turned out though. Even the indoor ones are quite satisfactory.

#StFagansNationalHistoryMuseum (or short #StFagans) is an open-air #museum in Cardiff chronicling the historical lifestyle, #culture, and #architecture of the Welsh people. It's one of my favourite places in and around #Cardiff. I never miss a chance to visit.

There are outdoor and indoor #photospheres in this album. All of them turned out reasonably well, with the stitching of the indoor ones a bit off again. Nothing I can do about it. This is also one of those occasions where I'd wish the #Streetview app would let me do some post editing before I publish my images.

Body tracking for Android
Upgrade your Samsung Gear VR.

One of the biggest advantages of the full blown #OculusRift over its little cousin #SamsungGearVR is the body tracking ability. Also called skeleton tracking this feature allows Oculus Rift to determine the exact position and stance of all your body parts and therefore allows for much better control of the #virtualreality image. With the Oculus Rift you can, for example, get closer to an object or look around it while with the Gear VR you can only look left and right or up and down. You can also control different aspects of your VR experience via your limbs (arms, legs, hands, etc).

To achieve that you need a bit more than just #VR goggles like the Samsung Gear VR. Goggles can only track your head moving vertically or horizontally. To track your head and the rest of your body in a particular space you'll need... more »

To track your head and the rest of your body in a particular space you'll need outside sensors. Oculus Rift already has them, but Gear VR doesn't. This might be remedied now with the #VicoVR. This nifty little device tracks your body in space and connects via #Bluetooth with #GoogleCardboard, Samsung Gear VR and other #Android HMDs. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Graffiti Wall
Longest legal graffiti wall in Wales.

This #graffiti wall is in Hailey Park in #Cardiff, right behind Wales' first graffiti art gallery, "The Boilerhouse". As you can see with all the water on the floor, the weather was crap (again), but I was lucky to catch some very rare sunshine for about 15 minutes.

Some more examples of taking photospheres indoors.

Taking #photospheres indoors is still a bit of a hassle for me. Especially when there're people around like in a museum. The ones you see here really took some serious patience.

In the images the #NationalMuseum in #Cardiff looks deserted, but that's just an illusion. The place wasn't packed, but it wasn't exactly empty either. Some of these photographs took me 10 to 15 minutes because I had to wait until peeps got out of the way. As you can tell I still have some feet who miss their owner in one of the pictures, but apart from that everything turned out quite nice. Well, that's probably because I binned three pictures that weren't up to my standards.

Please vote against #DonaldTrump
You don't have to be German to recognise the danger.

Many of my followers will think, why is a German living in a subtropical island getting concerned about US politics? Well, I don't usually, but being a German is exactly the reason why I do now. We've had our Hitler already. That's in the past and the past can't be changed. You (and I'm talking to all my US American friends and followers) still have the chance to prevent yours.

If you can't be bothered to vote FOR your candidate, make sure you go and vote AGAINST DONALD TRUMP!

While final exact figures for the 2012 presidential elections are yet to be calculated, the Bipartisan Research Center has stated that turnout for 2012 was 57.5 percent of the eligible voters, which they claim was a decline from 2008. Roughly a bit more than half... more »

While final exact figures for the 2012 presidential elections are yet to be calculated, the Bipartisan Research Center has stated that turnout for 2012 was 57.5 percent of the eligible voters, which they claim was a decline from 2008. Roughly a bit more than half the US population went to vote in 2012! I do understand your frustration. Many of you don't see an alternative to the governing party. You might think, "Why should I go and vote? They're all as bad as each other" and you might have a point there. I'm not urging you to vote for a particular candidate (if you have one, please do), but I'm begging you to vote against Donald Trump!

Don't let him become president by not voting!

Being German and considering our mistakes in the past I feel that I have to do everything I can to prevent this maniac to become the next American president. If he does it will have terrible implications for the whole world, just like Hitler's rise to power had unspeakable implications for the whole world in the 30s and 40s. If this man wins the elections the "4th Reich" will be coming out of the US this time. You think I'm being overly dramatic? They probably thought that of the "Weiße Rose", "Edelweiß" and the other German resistance groups too. I really hope you won't be making the same mistake.

Streetview on the Samsung Gear VR
How to view Streetview on the new VR headset.

I just found a #SamsungGearVR set under the Xmas tree! Anybody who knows how much I love #photospheres, #Streetview and #VirtualReality will be able to imagine what a wonderful present that is for me.

Until I found out that I can't use Streetview on the Gear VR!

You see, as soon as you clip your phone into the Gear VR headset, the Oculus software turns on automatically and from there there is no way to get into the Streetview app. Hopefully +Samsung Mobile​ and #Oculus will change that in the future (I'd like YouTube integration too, please), but for now I'll have to work with workarounds.

So, I got myself a nifty little app called Package Disabler Pro (get it on the Play Store: https://goo.gl/kvkYd0 ) which prevents the Oculus software from starting. It's easy. Install the app, open it, scroll down to Gear VR Service and tick the box next to it. Done! Now you can use any other app on your #Samsung Gear VR. If you want to use your Oculus software again, just untick the box.

Now open the #GoogleStreetview app on your phone (if you haven't got it yet, get it on the Play Store: https://goo.gl/faS4qM ), go to the area you want to explore on Streetview. Choose an image, tap on the cardboard icon on the top right and clip your phone into the Gear VR headset. Vióla! If the image you chose is one of Google's own Streetview images you can even move around (jumping from one image to the next) by tapping on the touchpad.

Cardiff castle
Some more Streetview photospheres from my day at the stunning Cardiff castle.

Not all of them are good. I'm especially struggling with indoor shots, but they are most definitely getting better ever since I started using a monopod. If you have any advice on how to perfect the art of taking indoor photospheres (or any other photospheres, for that matter) I'd greatly appreciate it if you could share it in the comments.

Get more juice for your Streetview camera
An external battery pack will prevent you from running out of power.

I've spent quite a few days now taking Streetview photospheres in Wales and had the same problem basically every time. At the end of the day I ran out of juice. Since I use my phone for a bit more than just taking pictures that is unacceptable. So, I got myself an external battery pack. After some research I went with the Anker Astro E3. It's 10000 mAh gives me plenty of power to get through a day of photo taking and it's nice and slim, which makes it very portable.

So, if you frequently run out of juice when you're on a photosphere run, get yourself a battery pack. It makes your hobby so much more enjoyable when you dint have to worry anymore if you can still make a phone call at the end of the day.

Get more juice for your Streetview camera
An external battery pack will prevent you from running out of power.

Christmas is for sharing

This is a Sainsburys ad, but I thought it's quite nice and I'd like to use it to wish you all a very merry Xmas and a happy and prosperous new year.

Cardiff Castle
View from the main house over to the Norman castle.

I'm just getting into Streetview. I've been messing around with it for a bit, but none of my photospheres were ever good enough to share them around. They're still not perfect, but I think I don't have to be too embarrassed of them anymore so I'll let you guys partake in my Streetview adventures.

I just bought a monopod and this is my first day with it on the road. Or better said in a castle. To be specific, Cardiff castle. It's a beautiful place, one of Wales’ leading heritage attractions. Find out more about it on their website: www.cardiffcastle.com.

This photosphere was taken inside the castle court, right outside the main house. It affords beautiful views of the clock tower, the main house, the lawn and the Norman keep.

They keep it coming
More features for the new #GooglePlus due to user feedback.

I turned my back on the other large social network because Facebook has absolutely no connection to its users. That is what fascinated me about G+. Even now platform/user interaction is second to none. Many posts have been written about what's to like and not to like about the #NewGooglePlus, but the best way to change something is to use the Send Feedback link.

Here are the changes in the last update.

G+ Web Preview Update 12/11
Today we're rolling out several updates to our G+ preview on the Web including:

* Visible links to categories on Community pages
* Auto-play of animated GIFs (with a setting to turn on/off)
* Ability to pin posts within Collections
* Clearer indication of notifications on the home stream
* Warning to ensure you don't lose new posts when changing pages

Some of these changes were unanimously requested (people want community categories visible!). Others required us to strike an appropriate balance between opposing feedback (some people love animated GIFs, others don't!). In all cases, we really appreciate your thoughts so please keep them coming using the Send Feedback menu item.
Thanks~___They keep it coming

The slightly different #drone
Want!

I'm thinking about getting a #quadcopter for Xmas. Drones have always fascinated me and even more so the autonomously flying ones. Unfortunately €699,- is slightly out of my price range right now, otherwise I'd go for this one straight away.

Google+ Quick Tip
Go from Google Now birthday reminders straight to G+ again.

Haven't done a #GooglePlusQuickTip for ages, but I just noticed something and I thought I'll let all those know who haven't caught onto it yet. 

From the very beginning of #GooglePlus and #GoogleNow it was possible to tap on a #birthday reminder in Google Now and it would take you straight to the affiliated G+ profile. Then a bored technician at #Google who obviously had to justify his wages got rid of that extremely useful feature. Gone! But Google listens and though it took them long enough the feature is back (I just sent them another feature request last week. That must've done that trick). :-D

I've no idea how long it's been like this now, but it wasn't there last week and since then I haven't seen any comments about it on G+, so I guess... more »

So, here you are. You can send your birthday wishes straight from Google Now (mobile) again. Why don't you go and share this with your followers

All about car detailing clay
Larry Kosilla from +AMMO NYC​ gives us the rundown on one of the most important tools in car detailing.

As I have mentioned before, my two most important low tech tools in #cardetailing are the microfiber towel and the #detailingclay bar. Today I'll let my car detailing go-to guy, #LarryKosilla talk about the latter in this video.

In most tutorials I've seen detailers use a special lubricant or claying liquid for there claying. On my little rock in the Atlantic it's rather difficult though to get even the most basic car detailing products (Heck, I pay €40 for a clay bar, just because I have to have the stuff imported). I have to come up with alternatives and what I use as a substitute in this case is water with just a dash of car shampoo. I spray that on my clay and the paint and it works great for me.

Donald Trump diagnosed as a “Textbook narcissitic personality disorder.”

"Narcissism is an extreme defense against one’s own feelings of worthlessness. To degrade people is really part of a cluster-B personality disorder: it’s antisocial and shows a lack of remorse for other people. The way to make it O.K. to attack someone verbally, psychologically, or physically is to lower them. That’s what he’s doing.”

He still has me worried. A people who voted a warmongerer like George W. Bush into office twice is capable to elect this maniac too. He's dropped in the polls by 12 points which seems to be the light at the end of the tunnel. Let's just hope that light is not a train.

Stuffed baked potatoes with yogurt sauce
Takes 40 minutes in the oven, but it's very easy to do.

For the potatoes you'll need:

Large potatoes
Sliced bacon
Sliced cheddar cheese
Grated cheese

Slice the potatoes, but not all the way through. Stick the bacon and cheddar in bergen the slices. Sprinkle the grated cheese on top (I usually use a four cheeses mix) and put it in the oven for 40 minutes at 180°C (I put it on a special oven paper I bought to prevent the cheese from sticking to stuff.

While the potatoes are in the oven you can prepare the sauce. You'll need:

Natural yogurt
Dijon mustard
Lemon juice
Salt
Pepper
Chives

Just mix the yogurt, mustard and a dash of lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper (they don't use that in this video). Pour over... more »

All about microfiber towels
A guide to microfiber towels by the "Chemical Guys".

If you ask me what the most important inventions for #cardetailing are you won't here me talking about "Rupes" random orbital polishers or paint thickness gauges, because they're all for the professionell guys and I'm a driveway car detailer. My two favourites are detailing clay and #microfibertowels, because that is what even the most basic detailer will have to use.

This video by the #ChemicalGuys is all about the latter. You'll learn all about pile, plush and thickness, waffel weave towels and what towel to use for what. Quite interesting, especially for those who're just starting out with car detailing.
