Our favorite privacy violator has updated Hangouts to include SMS (text) integration. According to a fierce debate, Google opted not to include SMS backups to their cloud in fear of user privacy concerns.
Google is already all over my privacy so uploading my sms’ to their cloud doesn’t bother me. The stuff they got on me through my use of Gmail and Youtube and Chrome and Search and Android and Google Docs and Google Keep and Google Plus and Google Drive does bother me.
Google Keep is cool because it has search. However, they should let you share cards so that individual cards can become visible to several people. A Public checklist for example, or instructions to give someone. They should be editable by participants or locked but visible. I think it could work and it teaches Google what type of topics or interests similar groups of people share and consequently lets Google build a better relationship map in their database. Gotta make sure Google gets their share too.

When a non-tech person shows up for an interview they do their best to convey they belong on the team. When a software developer shows up you have to convince them that they belong on the team.
Software developers are dangerous. They control your assets and your access to them. Because there is such demand for them they have the upper hand. How do we stop them?
Wait, the iPhone 4S was sort of a disappointment because it didn’t present any innovations and was a meager update of the iPhone 4. And the iPhone 5 is sort of a disappointment because it didn’t present any innovations and is a meager update of the iPhone 4S. Apple post Jobs is just like any other fruit at this point.
If I had to pick three genres to be stuck with listening to for the rest of my life, it would be Jazz, Reggae and…
