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.

The 1 GB of space wasn't the only thing Gmail offered. It has a good UI (a first for web mail), great search, and now also IMAP. I still have my Hotmail address to sign up for various bullshit and log into it now and then, and even though it has improved in various ways since back then, it's still utter shit compared to Gmail. Same goes for the other web mail services I've tried.

I imagine Google could still utilise some of their strengths in this new thing as well. Android integration comes to mind.
