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.

Give Thom a day or two to actually publish the story before you start claiming that Google hacked into their servers and is blackmailing them.


Who said anything about hacking?

Also though, I submitted the story on Friday. OSNews obviously isn't going to publish it. There's no point anymore. It's 5 day old news now.

Continuing this behavior after getting sued by the government for doing it would be just about the stupidest thing Google could possibly do right now.


They haven't been sued yet. They are just being investigated by the DOJ. A determination of whether any antitrust regulatory action will be taken against Google remains to be seen.

OK, you're right. You only accused them of blackmailing.

I know Thom said it somehow was removed from the queue accidentally, and I was taking that further to mean you thought Google did it. But it could also just mean Thom was lying to us, because he was being blackmailed.
