Steve Gillmor
Gillmor Gang Live 04.05.13 (TCTV) -
Gillmor Gang - John Borthwick, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, John Taschek, and Steve Gillmor. Recording live today at 1pm Pacific. - Steve Gillmor
We're on! - Kevin Costain
Hi Gang - Keith Teare
For some reason I have the feeling that we're going to hear about Facebook Home, right? Well, here's my take, it's all about engagement, the more you engage the more you click on ads, and ads are money, so Facebook Home is all about the money. - Nir Ben Yona
I finally got my first piece of "healthware" today... so far it's pretty sweet!! - Matthew Voshell
Facebook Home isn't it like carrier cruft? - clive boulton
I just don't see how anyone would *want* Facebook Home. - Kevin Costain
I think the Facebook Home has quite a good potential in emerging markets. - Nir Ben Yona
SInce Robert is in Miami, I'll say it: Facebook will be able to push notifications styled like Home "cards" to Google Glass too. Just change the presentation to horizontal and tweak to use Mirror API. Those Chat Heads could also be pushed to Google Glass, If you like that sort of thing. - Alex de Soto
Google+ coming to you phone Home soon - clive boulton
@Matthew nice. I recently got the Fitbit Aria scale myself. Also, I'm currently testing 4 different activity trackers. Withings is releasing one of their own soon. - Mark Krynsky
FB Home = Microsoft Bob for Android - Kevin Costain
That's pretty funny Kevin Costain ... - John Taschek
Google Glass already has pop-up faces in circles, at least in the original promo film - Kevin Marks
:) It just doesn't make sense why Facebook didn't just fork Android. That would have seemed like a more prudent move. - Kevin Costain
theywant to run on all android phones - Kevin Marks
even the ones google isn't on - Kevin Marks
Indeed @Kevin, and for that, they likely will fail. - Kevin Costain
The movie referred to is The Truman Show with Jim Carey - Ed Schlesinger
Imagine though, every single app wants to become the launcher? The launcher? The Path launcher? - Kevin Costain
harder for them to pull it off - Kevin Marks
@Mark... i almost bought the firbit aria as well.. but it's WIRELESS B?!?!! - Matthew Voshell
By being the top-most layer app on the home screen, Facebook fans will be more likely to use Facebook services (check-ins, messaging, photos, even email) instead of using other apps "hidden" on the device. Smart. They really want a Facebook app-centric phone. - Alex de Soto
Now, on a more simplistic level - Facbook Home is a worse launcher itself than any of the older, more crude versions of Android. It's a regression for launcher features. - Kevin Costain
also the data speaks for itself too - Ed Schlesinger
@Mark.. add this to your list.. i'm waiting for mine - Matthew Voshell Zuck's vision statement - Keith Teare
its not meant to be a good launcher, it's meant to be a good screensaver and notifications shell - Kevin Marks
Yea, when you go to a website in mobile safari and if it has an app it shows the bar along the top... thats really useful for me - Matthew Voshell
it's goal is to de-emphasize launching apps - Kevin Marks
is zuckerberg just trying to open up the data intake like a beluga whale to sell on the back end? - Matthew Voshell
@Kevin - yes, clearly it's what they're trying to be. But, as an Android user, do I want to give up features to get "Chat Heads"? I'm not so sure. - Kevin Costain
#Chatter should be the Social Home Page for the Cloud - Ed Schlesinger
us here aen't the target - Kevin Marks
I just wonder, if people aren't that unsavvy, this might not be very popular. The mass install has to come from downloads - not from buying the phone (Zuck said it himself in the presentation). - Kevin Costain
And, my feeling is that on the HTC First, the launcher won't be replaceable from FB Home. If that's the case - brutal. - Kevin Costain
Facebook is to the social web what Goldman Sachs is to the giant sucking octopus - clive boulton
Google glass "cards" are another example of closed notifications. They all have to go through the google servers. No apps can run locally on the device. Apps can only live in the cloud. - Murray Macdonald
@Matthew I'm aware of that device...and many others :) - Mark Krynsky
Like, are we talking about Facebook home turning a "Smart" phone into a "Feature" phone? - Kevin Costain
kind of, Kevin. - Kevin Marks
I for one am sick of this "Mobile First" mantra. I still use my desktop much more than mobile. Call me old school....and get off my lawn. - Mark Krynsky
.. all in the name of simplification (hello Metro tiles) - :) - Kevin Costain
The dumbing down of OS's is just another step towards our march to Idiocracy. - Mark Krynsky
No, get off MY lawn! - Tina Chase Gillmor
Android can't respond placing Google+ on Home w/o risking run-in w/ t/ regulators - clive boulton
they can make it more pluggable - Kevin Marks
@Mark - maybe we're all just getting old :) - Kevin Costain
the next phone I buy wiil have a higher res screen than my laptop - Kevin Marks
Google could copy Facebook Home using Google+ exclusively on a new Motorola phone as a test bed. - Mark Krynsky
I am an assembly programmer. (embedded microcontrollers) - Murray Macdonald
Murray - rewire works great on Windows. I'm a Cubase (Steinberg) user. But audiobus does it on the iPad - - John Taschek
Galaxy S4 to Launch in Korea Packing a 1.8GHz Exynos Octa-core Chip, woohoo!! - Da
Kevin EXACTLY! How is it that we can get these mobile devices to have such awesome resolutions and PPI specs and you have to pay a fortune to get an LCD monitor with that resolution? - Mark Krynsky
Consider this: In all the years of Windows, how many applications took over the shell (easy to do) and became our "Facebook Home" on Windows? - Kevin Costain
Jet here... low and loud - Tina Chase Gillmor
@John...ah the memories. I used to play with Cubase Digital Audio on an Atari Falcon with 8 tracks of digital audio! - Mark Krynsky
It seems to act more like those live wallpapers that Android used to offer, back in the early days. - Nir Ben Yona
John: I'm a Cubase/live/metro user. I agree Rewire is brilliant. - Murray Macdonald
I've got a 12 volt car battery as a mophie - Kevin Marks
the 3800mAh Extended Battery for my VZW Galaxy Nexus is awesome - Da
Mophie Steve. Mophie. - Tina Chase Gillmor
He's used as a battery inside the Matrix - Mophieous :) - Kevin Costain
Yeah, Lowbat! Android screen sucks battery compared to iOS why? - clive boulton
CPU isn't the issue. Getting connections across walled-gardens is the problem... - Murray Macdonald
it's more the computations per energy curve: - Kevin Marks
Boy I sure feel extra ranty today. I blame no Scoble. - Mark Krynsky
Google Glass only uploads to G+ - Murray Macdonald
running two Youtube videos on a Galaxy Note 2 is great - Da
yup - "Getting connections across walled-gardens is the problem..." - clive boulton
John Borthwick has a nice head of hair. Just had to be said ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
i used to have - Keith Teare
OLED displays will save battery. - Murray Macdonald
That's a mod mop Tina! ;) - Alex de Soto
The Nexus 4 is great, except for the speaker phone... Can't beat the $300 no-contract price. - Murray Macdonald
I'm actually more excited about the HTC One than the S4 but I do like how Samsung is going down activity health tracking with the S4. I currently have a Nexus 4 but see myself upgrading to a new phone this year. Ah, so nice not to be tied to a contract. - Mark Krynsky
I am tempted by the Nexus 4 to replace my craked galaxy, but I think I shoudl get a 1080p one to examine - Kevin Marks
Alex ah, true. - Tina Chase Gillmor
If glass takes off all that content will go to G+, not FB. - Murray Macdonald
4 hours of Ingress portal battle chews up a 10k mAh external battery pretty well - Da
Mark - why are you so cranky ... :) I had an HTC Thunderbolt -- good phone. I'd get another HTC. It just that HTC didn't innovate as fast as others. And at the wrong time. - John Taschek
I don't think Google is even worried about Facebook Home taking anything away from G+. Won't sway the few that use G+ more than FB. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
My ear has been "stuffy" lately. It's been driving me crazy! - Tina Chase Gillmor
John...I think the HTC One is pretty comparable to the S4. - Mark Krynsky
I've seen Dropbox on Facebook Home. - Nir Ben Yona
If Glass takes hold, G+ will be the only place to get all those social shares and notifications. - Murray Macdonald
Path is already working with Google's Mirror API for Glass. - Alex de Soto
The mirror API doesn't allow for local applications. Everything has to be done as a restful cloud service that talks via the googleapis servers. - Murray Macdonald
Yes Murray...all in the cloud. ¡-) - Alex de Soto
somebody is clicking an old school bic retractable ballpoint (or so it sounds) - Andrew Hazlett
It's not much of a risk actually. What's the big deal if it flops beside maybe FB's stock view of future potential. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
I don't think G+ has evolved yet. If I were Google, every percentage of ad revenue makes a difference. If FB takes over some part of the monetization of search, then Google can be hurt (emotionally perhaps). - John Taschek
I don't think even "normal" people are ready to give over *all* of their lives to Facebook - Andrew Hazlett
Really, there can only be one launcher. What if *that* catches on on Android? - Kevin Costain
the Facebook folks listen to GG - Tina Chase Gillmor
Mark -- think that's why HTC is in the mix too. - John Taschek
Alex: That rules out decent speech recognition and image processing applications. I think we'll see other real headsets that allow local apps, like the Vuzix M-100 - Murray Macdonald
Good point John - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
I'm very interested in how apps are developed on FB and deployed on Home. I don't think that was analyzed well. - John Taschek
@John - maybe apps aren't allowed? Just merely exposed through their own launching mechanism? - Kevin Costain
Official FB home promo video resonates - clive boulton
I wrote about this, with links: - Kevin Marks
Facebook Home highlights Apple closed ecosystem - people can either get trapped in Apple or be free with Android - Da
it will allow efficient web apps that flow like native. - Murray Macdonald
The old specs were ambiguous. - Murray Macdonald
I love that I can chose many, many different browsers for my Nexus - Da
Forking and spooning ... very different - Tina Chase Gillmor
Fork You. Don't even start talking about pull requests. - Murray Macdonald
Kevin getting TESTYYYYY - Matthew Voshell
Where is Scoble to set everyone straight!!!??!! - Kevin Costain
one of the best vanity plates have ever seen, on an Audi Quattro - "IV Q II" - quite an accomplishment to get it past the DMV (SecOfState here in IL) censors! - Jerome Hughes
I disagree. HTML5 has resolved that. PhoneGap developers hit cross-platform HTML5 everyday. - Murray Macdonald
They care about standards? HA! They want to MAKE the standards! - Kevin Costain
They're open-source. Port the source. Chrome extensions are just web-page extensions. You just need an environment that supports the standards and required events. - Murray Macdonald
HTML5 is just beginning to be standardized - John Taschek
Fact is though, browsers still render the same page differently. That (after how long the web has been around) is pure BULLSHIT. - Kevin Costain
HTML5 has a standards process that is working - Kevin Marks
Kevin is right -- every browser renders differently - John Taschek
oh, I thought he mean a mac mini - Kevin Marks
I am very glad that HTML5 will be a stronger standard, but it is moving slowly - John Taschek
3 Brits - Tina Chase Gillmor
Yea.. every brosers does render diferntly :/ - Matthew Voshell
it isn't any more becasue the browsers ae now moving quickly to deploy changes - Kevin Marks
You guys are ending this too early :( - Kevin Costain
Open Mikes! - Alex de Soto
been a good show, me thinks - Tina Chase Gillmor
Browsers are all standardized -- as long as you use Chrome (that's why I use it!) - John Taschek
Another good show. Have a great weekend everyone. - Mark Krynsky
taschek, I should show you some html presentation stuff - Kevin Marks
You're dreaming Steve. The major players are going to fight to keep their notifications isolated. Apple and Google will be holdouts. - Murray Macdonald
Thank you everyone! - Kevin Costain
Good show. Thanks. - Alex de Soto
5 stars - Jerome Hughes
Show shows Moore's Law is mobile - clive boulton
"Sir, I need you to put that away - ok" - clive boulton
Really good show, if I do say so myself. Thanks everyone - Tina Chase Gillmor
I hate it when I have to actually work on Fridays and miss the show ... - Laura Norvig

The Quantified Self Evolves: A South By Southwest (SXSW) Vision of How Gadgets Will Teach Us About Ourselves -
Great article. There's a push from "big data" to "my data" so that self tracking technology can provide actionable data to help move us towards proactive decision making. This data about our lifestyle will also give us more control over our health. The information should help us make behavior changes and eventually allow doctors to make a major shift from treating illness to assisting with prevention. - Mark Krynsky
Steve Gillmor
Hanging out, waiting for the famous call. - Robert Scoble
I have Android angst. Will I blow up on today's call? - Robert Scoble
@Robert is switching to android like dating a stripper? She looks great but once you find out she sleeps all day and can't stop flirting with guys you realize hose bad of a decision it was? NOT a personal story at all :/ - Matthew Voshell
Heheh. Matthew, it's not quite THAT bad. But the notifications suck. :-) - Robert Scoble
Android angst? Can't wait to hear what that's all about. And isn't it amazing that while Google Reader will be gone soon Friendfeed is still around? - Alex de Soto
have you tried google keep? - Matthew Voshell
Yeah. That'll be more interesting with Google Glass, but then I'm still partial to Evernote. I don't trust Google as much as I used to. - Robert Scoble
We could also talk about algorithmic user interfaces (like what Facebook is moving to). That bugged me a lot at first but now I'm very intrigued. - Robert Scoble
Tina, you there? - Robert Scoble
I completely agree Evernote is amazing... when did google try to play catch up and not just be the innovators they are? are they getting TOO big? - Matthew Voshell
Hmmm, Gillmors can't be reached. Steve is in New York. Tina must be having troubles. - Robert Scoble
how can you dislike android notifications? dislike some apps for doing them badly, sure (twitter) - Kevin Marks
I just got back through and Tina is having trouble with one of the machines. Please stand by. - Robert Scoble
Kevin: all apps suck on 4.2.1 all notifications are single lines and totally useless. Forces a click through which iOS doesn't. - Robert Scoble
@robert are there not third-party mods to change the notifications? - Matthew Voshell
Matthew: I don't know. On iOS I don't need to do third-party crap. - Robert Scoble
@Robert yea true.. so you're saying apple got something right?!?! - Matthew Voshell
Yup. But Apple sucks because of the keyboard. Android, er, SwiftKey, is far superior for me. - Robert Scoble
Danny Sullivan: please stand by. Tina is experiencing technical difficulties. - Robert Scoble
@Robert What about google voice dictation? I use the google search app on my iPhone 100% of the time.. and i know it's builtin to the keyboard as well? - Matthew Voshell
Matthew: voice is a wash. Google is better at some things, Apple better at others. - Robert Scoble
have you done the pull to expand thign on notifications - Kevin Marks
2-finger pull down on any one give you the same UX as the top one - Kevin Marks
Kevin: yes. That just expands groups, like Gmail, into multiple messages. All single lines. - Robert Scoble
@panel... I've been saying this forever... why dont you guys do this on a broadcasted google+ hangout? - Matthew Voshell
Matthew: we should. If I ran this I would do that. - Robert Scoble
.... and save tina that aggravation :) - Matthew Voshell
Been waiting here since 1 PM! - Francine Hardaway
Thanks, we are running! - Robert Scoble
Are you hearing OK? - Robert Scoble
Aloha! - Nir Ben Yona
What are you doing indoors, Kevin - Francine Hardaway
I just got my Basis! - Francine Hardaway
Nice Francine! I've been wanting to test that. - Mark Krynsky
I tried the street outside, but that was even noisier - Kevin Marks
also there was a lady wearing google glass having a phonecall - Kevin Marks
Mark, I can't even open the box it's packaged so tightly - Francine Hardaway
@kevin... was it as awkward as not realizing someone has a bluetooth headset on? - Matthew Voshell
I'm back on. - Robert Scoble
well, we were debating who each latte was for, so a bit odd - Kevin Marks
10 seconds for try #2. - Robert Scoble
I have a headset on too now though - Kevin Marks
That Basis is almost as good as a lie detector: heart rate, perspiration, skin temp... - Alex de Soto
@Kevin LOL - Matthew Voshell
Nexus or always behind - clive boulton
geez... thanks for hanging in there folks...all good now? - Tina Chase Gillmor
@Robert... so why didnt you get the nexus 4? - Matthew Voshell
stev face the camera - Tina Chase Gillmor
I need to give Scoble my tweet notification app. - Kevin Marks
Robert, you should ask Danny about his multi-device activity tracking. We're both doing this right now. I'm testing 4 activity trackers simultaneously right now Nike Fuelband, Jawbone Up, Fitbit One and Bodymedia Armband - Mark Krynsky
Danny is knackered after SMX? - Kevin Marks
talk about Google Keep. Does anybody care about that AT ALL? and the timing after killing Reader? Not good. - Laura Norvig
Laura... you talk about it and see if the gang picks it up - Tina Chase Gillmor
I just did ;-) - Laura Norvig
Keep makes me wonder whether Tasks will evaporate suddenly. - Tinfoil 2.0
And will News ever go away on Google? - Alex de Soto locked up. - Mark Krynsky
Spotted Chomebook Pixel's this week, one in the wild. - clive boulton
...and it's back - Mark Krynsky
no InstaGram is a no-go for kids fo-sho - Tina Chase Gillmor
Yep daughter uses instagram now more than facebook. - Mark Krynsky
Photo apps are taking over social media! - Steven E. Streight
instagram on Android tabets is nicer than on iPads - Kevin Marks
Facebook fatigue is really setting in - clive boulton
@Laura Robert and I spoke about it earlier in this stream - Matthew Voshell
We were promised vacations on Mars...and all we got are these stupid cat photos! - Steven E. Streight
turn your ipad inot a netbook! - Kevin Marks
Ah, thanks Matthew, I was at lunch! - Laura Norvig
I pre-ordered this months ago and ti got puched back, but i think it's WAY better than the other activity trackers out there - Matthew Voshell
Mark - same. very little FB all Instagram - Tina Chase Gillmor
I'm using the Logitech keyboard for the mini. They ship quickly from Logitech. It's great but can't use a protective case for the back with it. - Alex de Soto
But how does instagram pay off for young kids when they go to get a job in 10 years?!?! haha - Matthew Voshell
It's a generational thing.... - Mark Krynsky
Gen X is still pretty privacy wary...the new generation isn't...this will affect adopted technologies. - Mark Krynsky
A generational saying "So..." at the start of every sentence. - Steven E. Streight
ditto my 16 and 18 yr old neices - Instagram, not Facebook anymore - Laura Norvig
Path too. - clive boulton
mine use fb messenger a fair bit - Kevin Marks
They'll care about privacy when hit by identity theft or predators. - Steven E. Streight
So its where you friends are? growing up is all about fitting in... - Matthew Voshell
my eldest was live-tweeting a school conference this week... - Kevin Marks
Fitting in...or being a Steve Jobs. - Steven E. Streight
it never stops scoble :) - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
My students, year 3 and 4, don't know shit. I have taught them body monitors, sensors, 3-D printing - Francine Hardaway
Most of them have iPhones - Francine Hardaway
kids just want to communicate with their friends - Tina Chase Gillmor
Yea i think for events, organizations, these social networks are amazing... but for personal life? just building a case to not get a job or be trusted :/ - Matthew Voshell
Silence and Solitude will be the New Black. - Steven E. Streight
Hello GG friends. - Darren
Robert: Will kids run away from the contextual or embrace it? - Alex de Soto
Alex: for a couple of years. Why? Price. - Robert Scoble
But after the glasses get cool enough and cheap enough, we'll see kids use them too. Particularly for sports or concert videos. - Robert Scoble
@Robert so it goes the way flat screen TV's have? Please tell me we dont become the people from Wall-E :( - Matthew Voshell
My students (journalism) use Twitter, hate Facebook but still use it. Are amazingly tech illiterate and uncurious. Remember, outside SV, there's a whole other world - Francine Hardaway
Facebook made the social graph too much the past you were - clive boulton
Glad to see we aren't talking about SendGrid today. - Darren
When Google Glass tells us what to do, and Google Cars drive us contextually to where they know we should be, will thinking be obsolete? - Steven E. Streight
Kevin is at The Creamery in Sf. Oneof the loudest places in SF - Tina Chase Gillmor
If its cool... does that mean is useful? i dont think they are mutually exclusive. - Matthew Voshell
but quieter than the street outside - Kevin Marks
SendGrid are a disgrace - Kevin Marks
Twitter is for very short messages, not real conversations. What does that say about us? - Steven E. Streight
The kids of the people on this call are NOT normal - Francine Hardaway
I plan on limiting my kids tech usage growing up; kids nowadays get punish by having to go outside and turn off their xbox's; when i grew up and we were in trouble we WEREN'T aloud outside... :/ This pushes towards childhood obesity... is tech to partly blame? - Matthew Voshell
Twitter conditions us for short bursts of talk, rather than what we had in blogs, longer communications in depth. - Steven E. Streight
Patrick is not the norm - Francine Hardaway
Matthew: yes. Technology plays a big part in obesity. - Robert Scoble
Francine - not normal - true. but their friends are and it's the same - Tina Chase Gillmor
I would agree that I've gained weight due to more time on the PC and eating late at night. - Steven E. Streight
Maybe part of a bigger conversation regarding trust in cloud services is the bigger issue. - Mark Krynsky
Hi everyone, just checking in because I miss you all. Am I late? I have been traveling a lot lately :) - Charlie Isaacs
I have been experimenting with new curation and discovery tools like RebelMouse and Swayy to find stuff to read. I wonder if this type of discovery is going to replace systematic RSS reading of blogs. - Laura Norvig
Will smart phones and tablets totally replace tower PCs? I doubt it. - Steven E. Streight
Hiiiii Charlie - Tina Chase Gillmor
Hiiiiback Tina! :) - Charlie Isaacs
RSS seems to be in trouble. - Steven E. Streight
Does Google want to replace RSS with GooglePlus, Robert? - Steven E. Streight
rss is just fine - it's used as the backbone for more things than ever - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
*sigh* - Darren
Twitter not supporting RSS, XML or Atom anymore - Laura Norvig
I think Flipboard and Social Networks.. RSS will live but be like cash vs. credit cards today... it'll be the undreground - Matthew Voshell
No Tina, your kids all llive in SV. Tech is in the air - Francine Hardaway
I think RSS readers may go the way of blog rolls. - Steven E. Streight
twitter stopped supporting rss and atom because they, at the time, lacked capabilities to handle it - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
Syndication is a necessity...regardless of what the technology ever iterates to. I still use RSS and will welcome whatever new technology comes to evolve it. - Mark Krynsky
Google Reader with RSS was incredible ROI for Google. Not a lot of money for a lot of geek love. - Kevin Bryan
RSS serves a very relevant B2B purpose (syndication) and there are no relevant alternatives. Until there is it isn't going anywhere. Proprietary APIs are not that. - Darren
When does "content curation" turn into plagiarism and duplicate content? - Steven E. Streight
Does google just have the balls to say No? Jobs was renowned for the ability say no. - Matthew Voshell
you use email and you don't know its SMTP ? - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
promoting TWIT on GG??!! - Tina Chase Gillmor
Very sad about Reader because it makes a lot of very vocal people not trust Google. - Francine Hardaway
Steven, I'm surprised that is not contested in courts more. All the tools I have seen do link back to original source - Laura Norvig
Apple updates Podcasts app with new features and design changes Read more: - Charlie Isaacs
Google Reader was the Velvet Underground of Google services. Not many people used it, but everyone who did started a blog. - Kevin Bryan
Tina: I need to keep up on the other shows that I'mnot on. :-) - Robert Scoble
Google doesn't say n directly, just has passive agressive arguments about traffic - Kevin Marks
Laura, Twitter si barely supporting Twitter any more - Kevin Marks
rss and other "notification" tech is important as infrastructure if only to keep things from not being silo'd - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
Scob - yeah you have the time to do that! - Tina Chase Gillmor
@kevin so they are more motiviated by money and not as much be delievering a product people love? The supposed opposite of apple? - Matthew Voshell
Francine - when are you coming to SV again? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Was there this week. Mid April - Francine Hardaway
I come once a month - Francine Hardaway
not money per se, more that when they have an instinctual dislike they'll find a data-driven justification - Kevin Marks
Could they have merged Reader into "Google News?' - Alex de Soto
Danny - right. couldnt they have utilized it somehow? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Google offerings last 1459 days - clive boulton
Google Plus is not solving any of my information overload problems at all. - Laura Norvig
Explore on GooglePlus has been demoted in the More tab. - Steven E. Streight
I know a Government agency that leveraged Google Reader to dynamically parse feeds/information specifically related that Govt. agency. A young innovator built the app to save taxpayers money...oh well. - Charlie Isaacs
I gain a lot more followers on G+ than on FB, but get more interactions on FB. - Steven E. Streight
Robert's right. Discovery on G+ is very difficult - Francine Hardaway
the call-out about Google Alerts failing was interesting too - Kevin Marks
Like I said, the Explore tab on G+ is hidden in More. - Steven E. Streight
I use google alerts a LOT... please dont say that is next :/ - Matthew Voshell
Why doesn't G+ have a private message feature like all other social media does??? - Steven E. Streight
I have been getting incredible value out of a "secret group" nptech community of practice on Facebook lately. The trust in the group (of about 400) ripples out into public facing parts of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn. - Laura Norvig
@Steven... tech it does? if you share a link with a specific person, they are the only ones that see it - Matthew Voshell
Limited on G+ gives private message - clive boulton
it has gtalk integrated, steven - Kevin Marks
facebook will always be a non-starter just because all of the tech people I interact with are not on it :/ - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
or you can just put one person in the circle field - Kevin Marks
@Francine But when you come you dont call ;-( - Tina Chase Gillmor
Does G+ support private hangout? - clive boulton
Thanks Matthew, but that's a bit clunky of a workaround for private messaging isn't it? - Steven E. Streight
yes, you can invite a circle to a hangout - Kevin Marks
so make a small circle - Kevin Marks
LinkedIn is iterating fast. I am starting to read a few things there. - Laura Norvig
Ah. cool. small circle hangout - clive boulton
It is hard to survive in business without being on LinkedIn - Charlie Isaacs
Mike: really? Nearly every tech person I've ever messaged is on Facebook. They might not post often, but almost all are there. Except for the weirdos like Dave Winer and Ryan Block. And they are on Twitter. - Robert Scoble
To private message in G+ I have to go to my Gmail page, get on GTalk and hope the user is active at that moment? - Steven E. Streight
Sounds interesting Laura. I'd be interested in that nptech group. - Mark Krynsky
I found my job at Aol through linkedin, it showed me one of my friends that works there and had them submit my resume... boom! Very powerful - Matthew Voshell
LinkedIn continues to have some usability issues. - Steven E. Streight
I'll add you, Mark! Oh. Are you going to NTC? - Laura Norvig
Why did LinkedIn get rid of the Amazon reading list? - Steven E. Streight
steven - pop up the chat window and choose the person, easy - Kevin Marks
Unfortunately not Laura. - Mark Krynsky
Long press the notification to disable it - Kevin Marks
Thanks Kevin. But I still think G+ needs a Private Message function on the G+ page itself. - Steven E. Streight
I should use Linkedin... I dont - Tina Chase Gillmor
@Steven... yea you are making this more difficult than it needs to be; if you want instant messagin, sure gchat (prop across gmail and google+) or you can post a message only to them; - Matthew Voshell
long-press the notification to get to the app setting menu to diabel that apps ones - Kevin Marks
Tina, your job is secure ... I think - Laura Norvig
I wonder if the average non-geeky user of G+ understands how to private message someone on G+ though.... - Steven E. Streight
Must see battery life talk. Performance from the Radio up. - clive boulton
WhatsApp is a mainstream app - Kevin Marks
I'm not "making it too difficult", I'm advocating better usability and intuitive functionality for average users of G+. - Steven E. Streight
it's located directly below your "posting" section where it says "who do you want to share this with?" and you select either all people, a couple circles, or a couple people. It allows targeted "messaging" in a powerful way... just no one is on there to send it to ha :/ - Matthew Voshell
Who is using LinkedIn status updates as much as they use FB status updates or Twitter tweets? - Steven E. Streight
I autopost to LinkedIn - Francine Hardaway
WhatsApp nothing hotter - clive boulton
LOL Matthew. Thanks. I think. - Steven E. Streight
Laura ...maybe ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
Yea, i NEVER post on linkedin really... I just see who' changing jobs and connected to people i'd like to keep tabs on for future job searches - Matthew Voshell
Autopost using what tool? - Steven E. Streight
Facebook is HORRIBLE about explaining their UI, features. "Normals" have NO IDEA. - Laura Norvig
So LinkedIn status update tool is not used much? I am starting to use it more. - Steven E. Streight
They have a lot of controls that only appear on mouseover, too - Laura Norvig
Facebook's the new SAP, too much privacy configuration complexity - clive boulton
I aspire to be on everyone's "With Friends Like Him I don't Need Enemies" list - Charlie Isaacs
Good question, Steven. Set it up so long ago I forgot. - Francine Hardaway
Laura - -right again about FB features - Tina Chase Gillmor
Too convoluted to configure privacy on FB? - Steven E. Streight
Buffer, Steven - Francine Hardaway
I'm in my own "I wouldn't want to be part of a group that would have me as a member" group. Wait, whut? - Laura Norvig
nice one Laura :) - Charlie Isaacs
Tech people seem to be very active on LInkedIn status updates. You have to click on Home to see the updates. Notifications are not implemented on your LI profile...? - Steven E. Streight
Someone is video-bombing Kevin - Tina Chase Gillmor
I have a google circle of all the circles that don't contain themselves - Kevin Marks
Tech people know how to autopost - Francine Hardaway
Am I hearing this right? Scoble converted Steve to Facebook. It's cold in Hell today. - Laura Norvig
I think she's just using the bathroom - Kevin Marks
now gone - Tina Chase Gillmor
All I personally want is regex filters. - John Mann
Notifications can be a major security whole. Authentications to your phone ala google etc.. - Murray Macdonald
Kevin my head hurts now. - Laura Norvig
Autoposting can lead to duplicate content and truncation issues? - Steven E. Streight
I need to give Scoble my flowpast android app, but I need to port it to twitter API 1.1 first - Kevin Marks
Scheduling Facebook posts is an awesome feature. I do it for pages I manage - don't know if personal accounts can do it too. - Laura Norvig
only on Twitter. If it makes it past Twitter, it's good for LI - Francine Hardaway
oh curate this - Tina Chase Gillmor
Instead of autoposting, I do copy and paste, then make sure no truncation issues exist. - Steven E. Streight
A smart phone would only fetch notification when the phone is slightly moving. If it's been sitting still on the counter for 30 minutes, why update notifications. - Murray Macdonald
FBs convolutions likely due to MySQL under pinning, they really need a big graph database - clive boulton
Android apps CANNOT modify or read the notifications as this would be a major security hole. - Murray Macdonald
Im not using Foursquare that much. People dont need to know how many freaking times I'm at Home Depot - Tina Chase Gillmor
@Murray: I often set my phone on my desk for hours at a time, but still want notifications. - John Mann
No. FB privacy setting convolution is deliberate - Steven E. Streight
Then shake it. - Murray Macdonald
...I'm at Home Depot A LOT - Tina Chase Gillmor
I've never seen any reason to use FourSquare. - Steven E. Streight
here's what Android notifications can do: - Kevin Marks
Google Glass Notifications: You just ran into a wall. You just hit a pole. - Charlie Isaacs
I use foursquare to find places to go, and also to tarck where i've been - Kevin Marks
My big question is why video chat/conferencing is not popular with average public. - Steven E. Streight
That might freak me out - Francine Hardaway
Google Glass reference is the new Beatles reference - Tina Chase Gillmor

deliberate FB privacy setting convolution -- i'll buy it. - clive boulton
If you check in using Google Checkins, does that benefit Google Now over time? - John Mann
lost kevin... - Tina Chase Gillmor
Speaking of Roku, i got the Roku 3... The headhone port on the remote is AMAZING... my wife is much happier with me :) But it has crashed twice in 3 days :/ - Matthew Voshell
Matthew: that is cool. - Robert Scoble
Kevin: That's what the notification interface supports, but you can't create any alternative to it, nor can an app read notifications as this would be a huge security hole. - Murray Macdonald
I'm intereseted in usability testing Google Glass, but I don't go out much, so my context is limited. LOL - Steven E. Streight
Come back, Kevin - Francine Hardaway
I have an old Roku. Wondering if there is any reason to upgrade. - Laura Norvig
kevin call back in if you are able - Tina Chase Gillmor
connectio dropped for me - Kevin Marks
I got a Roku 3 too just for the Time Warner app which now enables me to return the HD Cable box I've been renting from them. - Mark Krynsky
Tina, Home Depot should give you a kickback now. - Laura Norvig
If GoogleGlass can alert you to a mugger approaching, by criminal record context, and what kind of weapon he has -- that would be useful. - Steven E. Streight
Occulus Rift is what I want to try :) - Mark Krynsky
That means it won't work in the sun, unless it is shaded like ski goggles. - Murray Macdonald
it seems like seeing through it would be distracting to the way the brain processes stuff. Harder to read. - Laura Norvig
Will Google Glass recognize facially someone you look at and link to their profile pages? - Steven E. Streight
someone tell Robert that he needs to drive 3 hours East to use thos - Charlie Isaacs
will try to get you back Kevin - Tina Chase Gillmor
It's called google glass. see Steve... you want one. - Murray Macdonald
@Laura not unless you want the heaphone jack to stream without bothering people; otherwise the new OS, which the new global serach is brilliant, will get pushed down to the older roku's soon enough; - Matthew Voshell
Google Glass as predator alert system. - Steven E. Streight
it was me sorry - Kevin Marks
Please augment my reality, Google Glass! - Steven E. Streight
I think Glass has a LOT of potential uses, but I don't think Glass will actually do much of what people will wish it can do. - John Mann
We want the Humachine super powers. - Steven E. Streight
Danny talk about your activity tracking devices testing. - Mark Krynsky
I Scoble wanted to go "all-in" he would use this instead: - Charlie Isaacs
Danny is keyword optimization chasing now obsolete for SEO? - Steven E. Streight
yes. Google Glass as predator alert system - I'd buy for my daughter - clive boulton
Robert looks like The Fly. - Alex de Soto
Talk about personal drones you can buy now. - Steven E. Streight

I have those same ones on, Danny. I also have a Fitbit, and I'm currently charging my new Basis - Francine Hardaway
The iWatch. We will be James Bond or Get Smart. - Steven E. Streight
Notifications to the lock screen is a MAJOR security problem. - Murray Macdonald
What's a watch? - Murray Macdonald
shoot Kevin disappeared again - Tina Chase Gillmor
Like Danny I'm testing all of those and a Bodymedia armband simultaneously...I'll be writing a full comparison soon too. - Mark Krynsky
iWatch is a wrist worn computer. Love it. - Steven E. Streight
Google Glass lightning rod? - clive boulton
Apple just has to call it a body monitor and everyone will wear it - Francine Hardaway
I'm also providing all of my data to someone who reached out to do a data comparison. - Mark Krynsky
I will get one of the watch devices as soon as they can make it totally waterproof - Charlie Isaacs
I think the creamery is shutting me down for overuse - Kevin Marks
iWatch will mean you don't have to carry a smart phone around. You just look at your wrist. - Steven E. Streight
I might write a comparison, and I might be too bored - Francine Hardaway
A notification watch is a huge security hole... - Murray Macdonald
They all suck as truly useful devices. Very primitive - Francine Hardaway
Hopefully Apple will add additional sensors to the watch...if not, it's a missed opportunity to replace activity trackers. - Mark Krynsky
Google Glass -- send an email by twitching your cheek? - Steven E. Streight
Right Mark - Francine Hardaway
Jack in? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Google Glass is the next step to internet implants in your skull. - Steven E. Streight
I can't use Microsoft office 'cos it sucks - Kevin Marks
Do you use Open Office? - Steven E. Streight
moores law doesn't work on batteries though - Kevin Marks
What if the whole band for the iWatch was a solar cell? - Alex de Soto
You don't like the activity trackers Francine? Strange. I gain quite a bit of value from them. - Mark Krynsky
A watch screen should be electronic paper. It doesn't need to change that often. - Murray Macdonald
are we in a Gibson novel? - Laura Norvig
Robert is the poster boy for the Singularity :) - Mark Krynsky
Well the internet is a drug - Tina Chase Gillmor
the Gibson novel is here, just not evenly distributed - Kevin Marks

Irregularity - Steven E. Streight

scoble is the guy at the corner with the sign that says "The End is Near" - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
I carry two Mophies an an external charger that can charge my iPad an iPhone simultaneously without a power outlet - Charlie Isaacs
Kevin sendvideo - Tina Chase Gillmor
there were so many product placements on this show. Sponsors, baby! - Laura Norvig
Each one logs a different number of steps and different functions Mark, and none of them gives you actionable intelligence other than "do more." This is data, not information - Francine Hardaway
Robert: Carry an extra battery that fits IN your phone. - Murray Macdonald
I carry a Mophie and my Ford Sync charges my phone en route - Francine Hardaway
I've been through 3 Mophie packs, the USB connector is very fragile - Charlie Isaacs
Why don't they just solar power all these devices? - Steven E. Streight
Francine, there is definitely compelling stories about people getting competitive about their steps, though. Louis Gray is a fanatic. I think he cheats, though. - Laura Norvig
Down with Batteries. Up with Solar Cells. - Steven E. Streight
But what's the end goal, Laura? Is it fitness? Burning calories? Harming your body? - Francine Hardaway
Heheh. - Robert Scoble
I was very competitive for years as a runner, and simply overdid - Francine Hardaway
Solar needs to be unrealistically large to power your phone. - Murray Macdonald
Then long distance walk instead - Steven E. Streight
Francine: I ran four marathons in high school so get that too. - Robert Scoble
Francine, I can draw some interesting correlations and value from the reporting I get but I agree it can get better and I'm seeing some aggregation services that are starting to draw more actionable information as well. - Mark Krynsky
Murray: yeah, solar doesn't work most days in half moon bay. - Robert Scoble
Solar is still so primitaive? - Steven E. Streight
Now I have to walk. Trashed back, bum hip - Francine Hardaway
Talk about the batteries: you should read the new novel "CyberStorm" by Matthew Mather. - Alex de Soto
Hilarious show - Francine Hardaway
Thanks. Just caught the tail end, looking forward to watching the show tomorrow. - Michael Roberts
that was fun. bye. - Laura Norvig
It's bizarre that solar panels still need to be huge. - Steven E. Streight
great show as always - even the parts I was yelling at the computer about :) - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
Btw...awesome interview on Charile Rose last night with data scientist Jeffrey Hammerbacher yesterday worth watching - Mark Krynsky
solar panels need collection area - Kevin Marks
Steven: farming photons takes space. - Robert Scoble
Ok...good bye all...until next time. - Mark Krynsky
if you want more power you need to gather more flux - Kevin Marks
Thanks EVERYONE!!! - Tina Chase Gillmor
Solar works great. I have a 6sqft solar power charging a 12v car battery. If I run it all the way down it takes two sunny days or four not-so-sunny days to recharge it. - Murray Macdonald
Have a good weekend. Lots of fun. Chat room was rocking, too! - Robert Scoble
Solar cells could be magnified by amplifiers - Steven E. Streight
flux capacitor - Tina Chase Gillmor

Really? Crap...I've tried many clients and loved that. - Mark Krynsky

Everything else is being miniaturized and amplified. Why not solar panels? Someone get on this. LOL - Steven E. Streight
Slide over and jack in... definitely a keeper - Tina Chase Gillmor
Tina. Is there an email address I can send you something at? - Murray Macdonald
yes Murray tina - Tina Chase Gillmor
thanks Tina, that was great - Charlie Isaacs

Re: Bodymedia, Nike Fuelband, Jawbone Up, Fitbit One Activity Tracking Roundup Update -

HI there - Kevin Marks
hey Kevin. Hey everyone! - Tina Chase Gillmor
Hi Tina! Gonna be a fun show today. - Robert Scoble
Ah, this is what it's like in the GG Green Room, eh? - Tom Guarriello
here - Keith Teare
Tom: yeah! :-) I guess we'll talk about Samsung today, huh? - Robert Scoble
Or we could talk about how Windows 8 is sucking air. - Robert Scoble
Or we could talk about my drunken escapades at SXSW. - Robert Scoble
Samsung? Did they do something this week? lol, that Radio City show was really cheesy! - Tom Guarriello
Or we could talk about the death of Google Reader. - Robert Scoble
Or we could talk about Facebook's new News Feed. - Robert Scoble
No Google Reader jokes! I'm still in mourning... - Tom Guarriello
Or we could just sit around and stare at each other. :-) - Robert Scoble
Tom: I stopped using it in 2009. You gotta come into the future eventually. :-) - Robert Scoble
Actually, as long as Reeder survives, I'll be fine. - Tom Guarriello
I tell ya the new Facebook news feed blows away most things for me now. Can't wait for everyone to get it. - Robert Scoble
You're funny, Robert. I can't do the research I to do with all that noise on Twitter, etc. I've got plenty of filters with lists, etc., but nothing beats reading those feeds in one place. At least not for me. - Tom Guarriello
Tom: the Flipboard Cover Stories does that for me. That is getting better and better. - Robert Scoble
But Facebook's new news feed is definitely eating into my reading time. By the way, you try Prismatic? That's rocking too. - Robert Scoble
stand by folks. Onboarding Gangsters now - Tina Chase Gillmor
I'm with Tom - Keith Teare
Downloaded Prismatic but haven't dug in yet. Same with, which looks very classy, Keith. - Tom Guarriello
Thanks Tom. Lots more to do.. but OK so far - Keith Teare
Hi Robert. Glad to see you back and in one piece from SXSW - Tina Chase Gillmor
Tina, standing by waiting for Skype call. - Robert Scoble
almost out of the gates - Tina Chase Gillmor is the Skype Version I'm running. Hopefully it all works. Updated this morning. - Robert Scoble
robert do you see us acalling - Tina Chase Gillmor
Version for me - Keith Teare
Robert: So with such a terrible Samsung launch are you still going to switch? Does anyone care that the launch sucked when it comes to buying the phone? - Michael Roberts
Finished setting up my profile, Keith. - Tom Guarriello
So, the breathing is too loud, but the potato chip crunching is hunky-dory?! - Evan Prodromou
Or you talk about how all these fake viral videos (like the recent pepsi ad) are getting tiresome. How long before people get tired of it and the hit count drops. - Michael Roberts
The chewing... - Tom Guarriello
Steve just checked out which Beatle glass he's drinking from - Tina Chase Gillmor
Think it'll be that reliable, Robert? - Tom Guarriello
The Samsung photo features were very cool. - Murray Macdonald
Google glass is a great toy right now, but I suspect it will take a gen. 2 before I'd drop a real phone. - Michael Roberts
Robert: I don't get it, do you have a special eyeglass lenses prescription for the Google Glass? - Nir Ben Yona
Samsung did that last year with with their WiFi direct photo sharing... - Murray Macdonald
When you consider that the Nexus 4 requires no contract, the competition gets even stronger. - Murray Macdonald
I suspect apple will catch up on all the specs, but the problem for apple (at least in Canada) is android phones are cheaper in terms of plans than apple, and as Robert says google glass connecting better with android phones matters. - Michael Roberts
Strongly Disagree... - Murray Macdonald
Samsung has done touchwiz UI for ages too - Kevin Marks
Robert's got a green screen behind him today. maybe next time i'll surprise him with an exotic background - Tina Chase Gillmor
Apple is still leading for now with Bluetooth LE. - Murray Macdonald
you can type with one hand on an android phone with swiping - Kevin Marks
The Google Glass IS pretty damn good. I think it'll shock a lot of people. - Robert Scoble
Nir: there will be prescription versions of Google Glass when it ships. - Robert Scoble
Robert: Gotcha! - Nir Ben Yona
eye detection in the browser: - Kevin Marks
I think the technology is advancing so fast, features are not as important as carriers, ecosystem, and connectivity to other devices. For now I'll stick with apple, but in a year maybe if google glass matures, and one cannot easily connect to google glass with an iphone, maybe getting android might matter. - Michael Roberts
Photos faster than your iPhone... Quad core - Murray Macdonald
I have a Samsung refrigerator - Tina Chase Gillmor
That's what MS said 4 years ago - Murray Macdonald
android shipped face detection in Ice Cream Sandwich; Samsung is just using it: - Kevin Marks
We have Samsung Washer and Dryer and you can use an iOS app to check for trouble. ;) - Alex de Soto
can I use my phone to check my frig to see if the milk is bad? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Google sponsored openCV while apple didn't. Computer vision developers are very pro google - Murray Macdonald
Please invite your friends to watch our live show - Tina Chase Gillmor
tina Mitch Wong says stream is down: - Kevin Marks
Darn, I have to watch the show later. Have to catch Cuban blogger @yoanisanchez now speaking at NYU. Enjoy the show folks! - Alex de Soto
Steve: you were all about screen res when the retina came out. Now that Samsung is in the lead your story changes. - Murray Macdonald
oops dropped out down to audio - Kevin Marks
the better screen changes all the time, today samsung, tomorrow apple, next week, someone else. It will ebb and flow all the time. I agree with Gillmor. - Michael Roberts
he's gonna blow today. I can feel it - Tina Chase Gillmor
the samsung phone has 4 times as many pixels as the iPad Mini - Kevin Marks
Kevin will you mute your mic? Your breathing sucks. - Robert Scoble
surely it blows - Kevin Marks
Speech recognition on Android is significantly better than iOS. This will be increasingly important as we get into wearables. - Murray Macdonald
I have tried Prismatic. It's okay, but I like Feedly better, and it will let me switch easily from GReader - Francine Hardaway
Does Camera Upgrades really matter, when Instagram lives on crappy pics - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Name droppers - Francine Hardaway
<eye roll> - Evan Prodromou
Stream your video to others over Wifi Direct. The idea of people having to look at your screen is wrong. - Murray Macdonald
Murray I was just thinking that - Tina Chase Gillmor
Apple could make an iPod Touch Maxi. 6 inch screen - Moe Glitz from iPhone
I'd never swtich to Android because of Samsung, I'd switch because android's ecosystem becomes so strong with their google apps and glass integration. google apps and glass would be the only reason I'd switch away from an iphone, never for the phone itself which to date has never been as slick as anything apple has created. - Michael Roberts
stream video into their glasses - Kevin Marks
Kindle fire HD? - Frank Paynter
iPad mini is 1024x768 Galaxy 4 is 1920x1080 - Kevin Marks
why not carry it around. It's not that big - Tina Chase Gillmor
Having joined late, I apologise if you've discussed this topic, but what's your take on Samsung trying to move away from Google Android? Yesterday, it felt like Samsung is building dependence on Samsung branded software, so when they are ready with Tizen (or other alternative), they can switch without damage. - Petr Faitl
I take my regular size iPad with me everywhere - Tina Chase Gillmor
HTC One is also 1920x1080 - Kevin Marks
The google ecosystem is already excellent. Gmail, Google Maps, Google Earth, turn-by-turn, Google Drive, etc... - Murray Macdonald
+1 Murray - Frank Paynter
Motorola will release one that size soon too - Kevin Marks
Kevin: And so does the Sony Xperia T. - Nir Ben Yona
not even google thinks motorola is building competitive phones - Ludwig Ederle
Murray: I agree, but I think like many who have invested in Apple, it would take something like a google glass to be the tipping point. Clearly that's the case for Robert. - Michael Roberts
Still waiting for the 7" Samsung Note - Frank Paynter
Is there a Google product that has changed the game as much as Android in the last decade? In fact, since Google Search? - Evan Prodromou
Nice that Dan is back in the tech fold but his bandwidth needs help ;-) - Tina Chase Gillmor
Then they'd better find a word for it besides "third half" - Francine Hardaway
It seems crazy to frame Android as some kind of sinking ship. - Evan Prodromou
Google glass... how to walk into lamp posts without hardly feeling it. - Frank Paynter
Third eye? - Kevin Marks
Third eye is perfect Kevin - Francine Hardaway
andy rubin is just tired of running android, he wants to build new cutting edge stuff - Ludwig Ederle
nothing to do with android/chrome os - Ludwig Ederle
Jeff Huber going to Google X too is interesting - Kevin Marks
Robert: that's clearer, thanks. - Evan Prodromou
Keath: I agree. I think if google really started to tightly integrate their apps with android, glass etc. the way apple does, I think would be amazing. - Michael Roberts
The Smartphone Market has peaked. Rubin knows this - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Talk phablets - Frank Paynter
Google glass/wearables/ okay fine bye - Frank Paynter
these new 5" 1080p phones are phablets - Kevin Marks
Is 5" big enough? - Frank Paynter
talk online, whether mobile or desktop or glass is not important, content and context is important - Ludwig Ederle
No joke - Frank Paynter
only 5''? @Frank :) - Ludwig Ederle
Seven or eight inches is the form factor that I find most comfortable but I'm in the senior citizen demographic - Frank Paynter
I think Dan's right on - Tom Guarriello
Right: the focus should be the mobile operating systems for both apple and google - and everything else hangs off that. - Michael Roberts
Chrome of Android is already excellent. - Murray Macdonald
Hoot APPLE LEADING THE WAY!!! Can I quote you? - Frank Paynter
it is on 4.0+ yes. they need to backport to 2.3 too - Kevin Marks
Buying NeXT was hardly open-source. - Murray Macdonald
FreeBSD was open source. Webkit is - Kevin Marks
Google Glass needs something to use as a base station, it will either be a phone or a tablet - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
honestly I think the iPone size ( iPhone 4) is getting to be too small of a form factor sor me. May be my advancing year - Tina Chase Gillmor
Chrome Pixel - Tom Guarriello
When Google looks over their shoulder they're not looking at Apple, they're looking at Microsoft. That's a better quote. - Frank Paynter
Why not make the android OS run on the desktop. The base is android. - Michael Roberts
All comedians want to play Hamlet... - Tom Guarriello
Michael: Android already runs on your desktop if you install the emulator. - Murray Macdonald
you can apparently run android on the chromebook pixel - Kevin Marks
They're hedging. Why bet the farm on one platform? - Murray Macdonald
Murray: I guess what I'm saying is why have an emulator at all. If you notice IOS and OSX more and more they look the same to the point where IOS is changing OSX more than the other way around. The same strategy could apply for google. - Michael Roberts
Heads up display like the US military aviators have used for a couple of decades needs to find its way into the marketplace. So it goes. - Frank Paynter
Having touch on the Chromebook Pixel is not competing with MS; it's just covering holes, and making sure bases are covered. You don't want someone else sneaking up on you and delivering a nice touch laptop experience and leave you in the cold. - Kevin Bryan
running Android or Ubuntu on a Chrome Pixel: - Kevin Marks
Thanks Kevin - Frank Paynter
These OS are just front-ends to the cloud. The cloud is stickier than a front-end client. Clients and client OSs will come and go while gmail and other cloud apps will persist. - Murray Macdonald
+1 Murray - Frank Paynter
These cloud/HTML only machines are VERY secure. They may find a market in the enterprise. - Murray Macdonald
Compute in the cloud is the only way to do Computer Vision and Machine Learning for the next 5 years. - Murray Macdonald
Chromium was the only OS not taken over at Pwn to own - Kevin Marks
Right now, Apple is chasing Market Gaps in their Product Range. Bigger Smartphone Screens. Mini Tablets. Budget Overseas Phones. Tim Cook is taking Apple back to the pre Steve Jobs era, too many splintered products - Moe Glitz from iPhone
you can do some vision clientside - Kevin Marks
Keith: I agree, and the trend seems to be this UX experience is getting to be incredibly important. - Michael Roberts
Glad it has no cell radio. That will significantly help the battery life. - Murray Macdonald
Google has patents on eye tracking... It would be hard to compete without it. - Murray Macdonald
L.L. Bean has a wearable tech shirt in the works - Frank Paynter
Barcodes are passe. Computer Vision will recognize the object before you can touch it. - Murray Macdonald
At last Google has found their Holy Grail. Eyeball Advertising right in your face! - Moe Glitz from iPhone

Thank you Neal Stephenson - Frank Paynter
I think we are winning at first world problems here - Kevin Marks
boomers want things *now* - the next generation may reject all of this instant access and return to a more in-the-now experience - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
I agree with Dan that this is beginning of the wearable computing. Apple will respond to Google at some point as well as others. The question is how far ahead is Google? - Michael Roberts
Google Glass in casinos? I don't think so - Tina Chase Gillmor
Casinos that aren't online? For how long? - Murray Macdonald
While cycling more than driving - Kevin Marks
SXSW is the only use cse for many apps - Francine Hardaway

Vibrating seats. - Murray Macdonald
I'm interested in Google Glass. But really dont know what it's going to be like in praticum - Tina Chase Gillmor
I'm crying nerd tears for Google Reader right now. I use it every day! - Kevin Bryan
It probably won't understand me any more than Siri does - Francine Hardaway
We used eye-tracking to shut down kiosk displays when people look away 4 years ago. Also shut down the screen if someone was looking over your shoulder. - Murray Macdonald
I'm furious about Google Reader - Francine Hardaway
Reader in Glass - killer app - Kevin Marks
those brain cells are floating - Tina Chase Gillmor
Seriously pissed off about Reader - Tom Guarriello
it's not that people have shifted from RSS it's shifted from RSS *READER* - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
Yes, and that's because I don't get all the health care feeds, or all the world news from Twitter feeds - Francine Hardaway
RSS is still there and present - it's the reader that has been removed - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
Anyone using Google Reader right now, try out Feedly. It migrates data very well with Google Reader info. - Kevin Bryan
There are LOTS of RSS readers. - Murray Macdonald
Kevin B I did - Francine Hardaway

@Francine cool! - Kevin Bryan
I am too limited by getting all my news from Twitter and FB even with the number and types of people I follow - Francine Hardaway
I live in Reeder daily - Tom Guarriello
We need open feeds and flexible (user-controllable) filters. - Murray Macdonald
It was sooooooo fast for me to read - Francine Hardaway
Focusing on Google Reader simply to consume feeds is short-sighted. There are 6,142 recipes on right now and many other people use it as plumbing for other functionality. - Mark Krynsky
NetNewsWire - Tom Guarriello
Yes, Mark. I have several IFTTT Reader recipes - Tom Guarriello
Right, Kevin Marks, I depended on Google search to give me news - Francine Hardaway
Remember Yahoo Pipes? 475 results for Pipes using Google Reader - Mark Krynsky
this is great news for the Activity Streams folk IMO - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
Superfeedr is ready to do that - bear (aka Mike Taylor)
Reeder is a nice skin for Reader's crawl on desktop and iOS devices. - Tom Guarriello
Thank you Kevin Marks for explaining why Reader was so dominant and useful. - Kevin Bryan
Filter in the cloud. Use notifications when something changes. Polling is a non-starter. - Murray Macdonald
Activity streams could get rebooted by this yes. Also Pubsubhubbub - Kevin Marks
the difference is reader is public streams primarily - Kevin Marks
Track, FTW! - Tom Guarriello
anyone publish/curate using ?? - Frank Paynter
Activity Streams would be a welcome reboot Kevin. - Mark Krynsky
Open sourcing or cloning of the Google Reader API that becomes distributed would be nice too. - Mark Krynsky
Filtering and machine learning can solve that problem. You need to merge RSS, Email, Social Streams, SMS into a single filtered feed. - Murray Macdonald
the mobile devices have higher res screens than the laptops we were using in 20005 - Kevin Marks
Exactly, Steve. - Tom Guarriello

Keith Teare, I'm with you. Robert, I hate the Flipboard interface. Distracting - Francine Hardaway
if borthwick can add Readability to digg+bitly... - Kevin Marks
That's why I called this Google Reader move fratricide. - Tom Guarriello
Smaller niche blogs will suffer. My blog still gets much referral traffic from Reader and Feedburner - Mark Krynsky
Smart filtering needs to be a cloud service, not something managed by each respective feed. We all need to merge our feeds into a single targeted feed. - Murray Macdonald
Flipboard is great to read, but I can't sort through 150+ news articles at a glance in Flipboard. Only Google Reader. - Kevin Bryan
Everything is pushing us small bloggers away... - Mark Krynsky
OPML -- that's right - Francine Hardaway
you can still get OPML out of reader - Kevin Marks
Maybe dropbox will take this on now that they bought Mailbox - Michael Roberts

It's in the shoes - Frank Paynter
Feeds and SEO are becoming less important and becoming good at finding how to promote through social media has become critical so that you are funneled into the "new" news feed. - Mark Krynsky
frank - but Steve is drinking out of his George Harrison glass - Tina Chase Gillmor
