RESHARE: I don't know what I'm most surprised about. The fact that they have a robot throwing a ball to a dog... or the dog's interaction with it. You can tell the dog knows that he has to start running before the ball is thrown.
Reshared text: Hey there, I'm Brett, and I'm an engineer here on the Google+ Circles team. We’ve been hearing that you want a way to reorder your circles -- so when you add people, view your stream, or share, that list of circles is in the order that works for you. We thought it was a great idea, and today, we’re launching this on Google+.
Let me show you how it works. Go over to the Circles tab and down to your circles. Now you can move your circles wherever you want, just by clicking and dragging with the mouse. Plus, that order will now show up everywhere across Google+, even in the dropdown menu when you add people to circles.
I hope you like it. And as always, please keep letting us know what we can do to make Google+ better for you.
Para los que quieren aprender a cocinar, o saben alguito y les gustaria preparar platos de todo tipo de forma facil aqui tienen este Blog que inició la estupenda +Ysimer Gonzalez .
Ustedes saben que yo soy loco con la comida y vivo publicando fotos de lo que ella me vive preparando. Ya no les tengo que dar tanta envidia, pueden hacer esos mismos platos exquisitos ustedes mismos :D
Lo interesante es que la gran mayoria de las comidas tratan de ser lo mas sanas posibles, sin dejar de tener un exquisito sabor. Lo mejor de ambos mundos :D
Asi que Súbele el Fuego y ponte a cocinar! :D Son bienvenidas todo tipo de sugerencias y comentarios! Esperamos que les guste!
Allen Iverson viene a jugar para RD! Para los que somos fanaticos y seguidores del Basketball esto es una tremenda noticia. Aunque es por 1 mes, podremos ver a uno de los PG mas talentosos que ha dado la NBA.
Starting today you can actually share your favorite circles with others! So if you’ve got a great Photographers or Celebrities circle, for instance, then you can share a copy with your friends.
To get started, just click on a circle from your Circles page, and click Share.
(Importantly: when you share a circle, you’re only sharing its members at that time. Also: the circle name is always private to you, and any changes you make afterwards are private as well.)
Let us know what you think in the comments!
Hi, my name’s Owen, and I’m an engineer on the Google+ team.
One of my favorite parts about circles is how they help me control who I share with, as well as what I read. In fact, many of you have created lots of great circles around topics that interest you (like Photographers) to bring lots of great content to your stream. In these cases, we've heard that you actually want to share your circles with others. Both to save your friends some time, and to connect them with interesting people and content.
Today I'm happy to announce that we're launching exactly that feature. We let you take the circles you've created, and share them with others! Let me show you how it works.
From your circles page... select the circle you want, add a comment, and then share it.
When your friends receive your circle, they can then pick and choose who to add to their own circles.
Note that when you share a circle, you're only sharing its members at that time. The circle name is always private to you, and any changes you make to your circle afterwards are private as well.
We hope this new feature helps you share and find lots of great content in Google+, while still giving you important controls over how you read and share. Thanks for listening, and please keep sending feedback!
Reshared text: Some more Google+ experiments that are rolling out as we speak:
You can now + reply anyone who commented on your post regardless of whether they have "find me in search" enabled. Hey, if they wrote to you, seems to make sense that you should be able to write back, right?
We removed the "blocked circle" and added a new menu for managing your blocked people.
We added a new invite dialog that provides a URL you can give out to your friends so they can join. I know, Vic already posted this one. Just re-posting in case you missed Vic's post.
For technical reasons, the little black bar across the top of the page, and the rest of the page, used a different event system. Now they don't, which means that if you add a friend from the notification bar on the top of the page, they will immediately show up as a friend on the bottom of the page. I know, crazy.
Fixed the count for # of followers. The number used to be capped at 10,000 in the people editor (even if you had more), now it is accurate. Also, we used different algorithms for calculating your followers in profiles vs. the list on your circles. We now use the same algorithm for both so they should always match.
My team just got a list from our consumer operations group of over 25,000 suggestions of great stuff we should be working on. Almost 6,000 of those were about the #s not matching in profiles and the circle editor (fixed!). A couple hundred were questions about whether sharing to your circles included your block circle (fixed!). Needless to say, much of what we do is based on what you guys ask for. We even had a few people tell us it was just cruel to show photos of their X's in their block circle, so, we removed photos for people you've blocked =)
Now, off to go address a few more of the issues. Stay tuned, lots of great stuff coming.
As I bet you've noticed, we are facing pretty incredible demand for Google+ invites.
As Engineering Director of Google+, I wanted to take a moment to explain why we're growing the system slowly. First, we want to make sure our infrastructure scales so the service remains fast and reliable. Second, we want to ensure that bugs are fixed while there are still a relatively few people in the field trial.
Things are going well with the systems right now so we feel comfortable enough to open up invites for a brief period. Our goal is to double the user base in the field trial. (Sorry, we're not giving details about how many folks are in the field trial yet).
So, in a few minutes, we'll open up invites again.
We continue to throttle invites, so please don't mass invite folks as it won't work. If you invite a handful of your most important friends and family you're much more likely to get these folks into our system.
Thanks again for providing so much wonderful feedback!
RESHARE: Very important stuff!! Changes are rolling out daily. Nice going Google =D
Reshared text: The sharing changes +Kelly Ellis mentioned earlier today are starting to roll out:
1) The next time you share something, you'll see a dialog explaining how to edit or delete your post, or disable comments or reshares.
2) When you try to share a limited post, you'll see a friendly reminder to be thoughtful about who you're sharing with.
3) You can't share limited posts publicly. (You can still share limited posts with other individuals and circles.)
And just to reiterate: as the author you always have the option of disabling reshares entirely on a given post. Just click the triangle menu at the top right of your post, and select "Disable reshare."
Google debe hacer algun tipo de campaña o estrategia para mover al usuario "comun" hacia los servicios de ellos mas alla del Search y YouTube. Porque cuando uno usa todos los servicios de google es que esta integracion que lograron en Google+ hace sentido realmente y se ve la magia del producto.
Parece que Google está comenzando a entender mejor como brindar productos verdaderamente sociales para el mainstream y no para los Google Geeks.
A quien mas le ha salido el nuevo compose window de Gmail? Es una chuleria, cuando vas a redactar un email nuevo la ventana te sale flotando en una equina y puedes navegar en el correo y los labels en caso que quieras buscar algo y la ventana de compose se mantiene ahi.

RESHARE: No me sabia esto. Es por cuestiones de seguridad que son tan pequeñas. Al final dicen que un avion sin ventanas seria mas seguro, mas barato y tendria mas capacidad de carga. Pero seria atractivo para alguien durar mas de 1 hora en un espacio totalmente cerrado...
Para el tema que habia el otro dia donde +Luis Manuel Then Alvarez publicó unas estadisticas de los efectos de tomar Coca Cola.
Aqui incluso menciona que el refresco de dieta tiene a veces hasta mas repercusiones dañinas, porque el que la toma cree que no está "pecando" y se da la libertad de incluir otras comidas dulces en su dieta que llevan a la obesidad y a desarrollar condiciones como la diabetes.
Reshared text: Google+ vanity URLs rolling out to public More and more posts showing up from people who got the vanity URL for their profile. It is obvious that Google has started the rollout for profiles AND pages. To check if you can get your vanity URL, go to your own profile ( http://plus.google.com/me ) and see if there is a small popup showing up. (See screenshot). Google pre-approved a vanity URL which is in most cases your profile name. So Moritz Tolxdorff will become +MoritzTolxdorff
If you don't like the choice Google made, you can select a different vanity URL for your profile.
Keep in mind that you are not allowed to change your vanity URL once you've claimed a name!
Siempre he pensado que uno como empleado le alquila sus servicios, conocimientos y experiencias a la empresa para la que trabaja. Entiendo que no es que te pagan para realizar un trabajo X, sino, que necesitan que alguien con tus capacidades, conocimientos y habilidades desempeñe una función necesaria para lograr las metas del negocio. Con esta optica, es que me he tratado de mantener durante mi vida profesional.
Tenemos que entender que no nos estan haciendo un favor por tenernos en la nomina de una compañia. Muy por el contrario, te tienen alli por algo, porque necesitan de alguien como tu. El asunto está en mantenerse lo suficientemente relevante para que quieran seguir con los servicios de tu empresa.
En los ultimos dias he visto mucha promoción y consejos de que uno debe habilitar el Two Step Authentication. Particularmente no lo uso, no por desconocimiento, sino porque no lo veo necesario para mi actualmente... Sin embargo, con esta reciente ola de hack attacks me he visto inclinado a habilitarla.
Quien por aqui lo usa y que cosas negativas ha encontrado utilizando este metodo de seguridad de doble verificacion?
Apex Launcher en la Nexus 7. 100% recomendado. Lo he estado usando en mi S2 desde hace varios meses y me encanta. Ahora cambió mi experiencia de uso totalmente con la tablet. Primeramente, me permite que el desktop rote, ya que el launcher default solo permite portrait . Ademas, de que puedo dejarlo fijo en landscape como toda tablet debe venir (en mi opinion no hace sentido tener el desktop en portrait).
Tambien los gestures son un gran plus para mi. En fin, si todavia tienen el default launcher en su Nexus 7, denle un chance a Apex, vale totalmente la pena.
Looks like some information about the unannounced Google Nexus 7 Tablet have leaked this morning, just days before the Google IO developer conference in San Francisco. Sadly I won't be there this year, as I leave for Nicaragua tomorrow morning, but it is nice to get a little sneak peak. Here is what Gizmodo Australia found:
- 7-inch tablet called the Nexus 7 - Built by ASUS with both ASUS and Nexus branding on the back - Android 4.1 Jelly Bean - 1.3Ghz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor - 1GB RAM - 8GB / 16GB onboard storage options - NFC with Google Wallet and Android Beam - IPS Display (1280 by 800 pixel resolution) - 1.2 MP front facing camera - 9 hour battery life
$199/$249 for the 8GB/16GB versions respectively
At $199 and $249, the Google Nexus 7 Tablet is going to be hard to pass on. While I know some will complain about there only being a front facing camera, I RARELY take photos on any tablet I have owned, so that doesn't phase me. The one spec I don't see yet is a micro SD slot. While I will be getting two anyway (one for my wife), having expandable storage is one of my favorite features of Android tablets. I love the 7 in form factor for both size and weight when traveling. A 7" IPS screen is more then enough for showing of my photography work while on the road. Crossing my fingers and awaiting the official announcement in a few days from Google.
Game 5 of the NBA Finals. What if OKC wins tonight?! They will be going back home with the series 3-2 for the next 2 games!!
Miami and LeBron James are playing an incredible basketball game... but I'm staying confident that Durant will provide a performance for the ages tonight in Game 5. I mean... he MUST... Is do or die for OKC at this point.
If OKC returns home for the closing of the series, I believe they have a pretty good chance of getting the title. No team in NBA history has made a comeback from a 3-1 deficit... but I believe!!! It doesn't get any better than this for Basketball fans!!!
