Google Well, here we have another attempt. After the failure of the overly complicated Google Wave (remember that? It was supposed to change the world and all that), Google is undertaking another attempt at social networking. It's called Google+. Update: Forget the crap I wrote here, this article is seven pages on insider information on Google+. Surprised by the beautiful interface? It's been designed by Andy Hertzfeld. The Andy Hertzfeld.

Google slows

Am I the only one who finds that Google is slow and prone to random failures? I've got Chrome on both of my Linux systems and when doing my APT updates, the Chrome repo update takes much longer than all the Ubuntu and Launchpad updates combined. I've had Google-based services take ages to load, or simply failing to load. It's not as bad as it was a few months ago, and nowhere near as bad as wordpress.com, but it still gets bad. They shouldn't be expanding their services until they sort their capacity problems out.
