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.

Oh right. I remember now. That's the search engine I used to use until I switched to DuckDuckGo.com because of privacy concerns with Google. And it's the email service I used to use before I switched to gmx.com because I got sick of Google scanning my private email to target advertising at me. And now it's the social networking site I won't use for the same reason I don't use Facebook.


Good for you. Now tell me - have you ever suffered any damages by using any of the google services you are so adamant of staying away from? Did gmail kill your puppy or sth? What's wrong with targeted, non intrusive text only advertising?
