Google+ starts to roll out verification badges

Google+ has now started rolling out verification badges:

We’re rolling out profile verification badges for celebrities, public figures, and people who have been added to lots of circles. Stay tuned as we expand this feature to more Google+ users.

So if you’re not a star or really popular then you won’t be getting this any time soon, not that we are sure, you’re really bothered.

Google introduce the Google+ project – Social Network

Google today introduced their social network, the Google + project.

Among the most basic of human needs is the need to connect with others. With a smile, a laugh, a whisper or a cheer, we connect with others every single day.

Today, the connections between people increasingly happen online. Yet the subtlety and substance of real-world interactions are lost in the rigidness of our online tools.

In this basic, human way, online sharing is awkward. Even broken. And we aim to fix it.

We’d like to bring the nuance and richness of real-life sharing to software. We want to make Google better by including you, your relationships, and your interests.

The social network seems to consist of the following five components:

  • +Circles: share what matters, with the people who matter most
  • +Sparks: strike up a conversation, about pretty much anything
  • +Hangouts: stop by and say hello, face-to-face-to-face
  • +Mobile: share what’s around, right now, without any hassle
  • +Huddle: Coordinating with friends and family in real-time
Here are the introductions videos:
and here is the link to the Google Blog Post:
Will you be checking  this out, we sure will.  We are hoping it is not going to end up the same way as Google Wave.
Google have also informed us that they are taking our security very seriously:
You and over a billion others trust Google, and we don’t take this lightly. In fact we’ve focused on the user for over a decade: liberating data, working for an open Internet, and respecting people’s freedom to be who they want to be. We realize, however, that Google+ is a different kind of project, requiring a different kind of focus—on you. That’s why we’re giving you more ways to stay private or go public; more meaningful choices around your friends and your data; and more ways to let us know how we’re doing. All across Google.
Google+ is currently invite only and is under field trial right now.  You can show your interest by navigating to:

Samsung introduce “The World’s First Samsung Chromebook”

Samsung introduce “The World’s First Samsung Chromebook”, the Samsung Chromebook Series 5.

But has this “NetBook” come along a bit too late with the recent rise of the tablet?  Having said this we must not forget that Chromium OS encourages you to live in the Cloud, making use of all Google’s amazing products.

As a side note, we are also still liking the MacBook style naming of Chromebook’s.
