Any special plans for your loved ones today?
Is it just to boost your ego, grasp business opportunities, rise on the stepping stones of those who taught you already in 2011 or shared your content when you were a nonentity?
Without remembering them now?
Then you are no better than any black hat SEO business that Penguin caught.
You know who you may be. A twinge in your conscience?
You're caught by the human factor.
Well, cheers. I hear these stories and they're not pretty.

Microsoft Thinks Women Use Computers for Weddings and Babies
A snippet from the article:
"They're funny, sure, but ads that misrepresent the relationship between technology and women aren't harmless.
They perpetuate the idea that women are less equipped to interact with technology and imply that specific devices must be marketed to women to be appealing..."
* * *
What utter idiocy from Microsoft!
This is why Google doesn't need to use any mudslinging techniques like MS has resorted to against Google products:
This company is so stupid it rolls around in the mud all on its own.
The blue screen of death looming?
- I'm so happy, that I'm using an iMac with Google tools... Would not go back to Windows, ever.
#Women #Tech #Microsoft #Fail
Women build computers, program computers, and use computers every day, but with its new "Honestly" ad campaign Microsoft is trying to bring us back to what really matters to women: marriage and babies. The campaign shows off products like the OneNote and Windows and touts features like touchscreens and affordability....
Guaranteed to introduce you to at least a few new names..
Go to your profile's About tab, click on the Edit under the box that displays your circles and uncheck the "Show people who have added me to circles".
To change who can see the people in circles, click on the Edit under the Circles box.
If you wish to hide who follows you, uncheck the "Show people who have added you to circles".
You can also customize the view, if you wish to display none, all your circles YOU follow on your profile or just a part of them.

Open up a new post, click on the Photo icon. Then choose "Your Google+ Photos", choose any of your images, click Add and then you get a new post with the image added, and also the text editor possibility.
Changing the text after saving is not possible, unfortunately. But you can redo another share of the same image.
If you just wish to create several meme's, share those image posts with yourself only and before sharing click on the add to an album, perhaps later downloading them to your computer.
See the photos for detailed instructions:
#Photos #Meme #Texteditor #Jaanatip
PS: If you wish the album like this one to display a name instead of the date like here, create a new album or add the photos to an existing album.
Which I forgot to do, again... :-)
Now I can change the name of the album created when I click it open and edit the name on top, but the name change does not happen in this already shared album.
A pro tip for post sharing
If you wish to share some advice, a recipe or how-to instructions:
Preferably create an album of the photos / drawings / images and share that. You can open a new post and add several images at once, but add at least two.
Because you can go back any time and edit the album contents, change the text added to the photos, add extra photos, delete a bad picture, reorganize the album etc.
Why is this good?
Because every one of the reshares is updated at the same time!
Also, if you have a Mac, you can now stay up-to-date with the latest topics people are searching for on Google with the new Google Trends screensaver.
Just watch here: http://g.co/trendsviz or download the screensaver for your Mac from the same website, top right.
Warning: You may find yourself putting your computer to sleep just to see what’s trending. :-)
I took some screenshots of the ways you can customize the region and layout, explanations included.

This question has been asked in the Google+ Help Community:
How can I share an image from Google+ to Facebook?
Click the image open in the lightbox view, copy the URL (web address) and paste to Facebook. The album / image must be from a Public album or shared in Public.
After pasting, the link opens up and you can delete the actual link so you don't have to leave the long link in the post.

The Facebook post:
You can also share any post from Google+ to Facebook by right-clicking on the time stamp and copying the URL.
#Sharing #Photos #Facebook #Jaanatip
If you give a +1 to a post inside Google+, you can later find it here:
Settings -> Google+ -> Apps & activities -> Log
or click through:
When you recommend a site or a blog post outside Google+ by giving them a +1 and perhaps sharing the article via the existing +1 button or Chrome extension, you'll find those on your Google+ profile's +1 tab like this:
If you wish to delete a link just click on the small x. Clicking on the article / blog / site +1 again, removes it from the list.
If you want to keep a website or a blog post on top, whenever you remove it and then Plusone it again, the link is displayed on top of the list.
Even if you share a link to a private community via the +1 button, it is always Public and ends up in this tab. You can hide your +1 tab from the settings here:
Where are my Google+ settings?
You can find your desktop settings from under the top right small profile pic OR the left pop-up pillar OR clicking through here:
There are many things that are more easily done on a desktop / laptop than on a mobile. I rarely use G+ on mobile so I can only share this Help Center link with you:
I hope this helps!

I've been using the 40°C for colours and 60°C for whites with just one program on all my washing machines. Our clothes are 99% cotton that doesn't need to be ironed. Maybe twice a year I powerwash sheets, towels and feather pillows & duvets in 90°C - still using the same basic program.
Who needs all the 50 buttons / choices?
Couldn't the manufacturers make a sturdy basic model with steel door and parts, instead of the silly plasticcy "space age" machines? WTF is "Skin care" program??
Is it for laundering the family?
I have an old Bosch LogiXX 8 Sensitive, a very good and fairly simple machine, perhaps that's why it was quite expensive. Made in Germany, too. With a family of five, washing 10 - 12 times per week (8 kilos each) was normal for over a decade and a half.
Here is a snippet from the article:
"I decided to visit the nearest store with electronics. They had about 50 different types. I explained to the shop assistant, that I’d always had problems with user interfaces of washing machines and I wanted to buy something really, really simple. She didn’t understand me well. Therefore I had to tell her I was a total idiot, looking for a “washing machine for total idiots”."
I agree with everything.
When someone makes a proper large washing machine with this simple UI, I say:
Shut up and take my money!

There is a post / photo stealer, black hat SEO company on G+, FB and Twitter!
Do report the post and profiles for spam, my dear Circleverse!
This is an #AdWords partner???
These are trying to look like they are Google endorsed company!
Their local page is: https://plus.google.com/+GoogleaccountmanagersCoUkppc/posts
Google Account Managers - This too me suggests they are impersonating Google. This name also does not match the correct company name of INSTANT ONLINE SUCCESS LIMITED - I'm not sure if Google have a policy about the places page matching that of the actual company name.
My original post with a photo I took in the Googleplex:
This is what they've been sharing as their own:
And this is the manager of the business:
Sorry guys, you're messing with a wrong person!
Reported copyright violation to Google and to Facebook.

If we're to believe the old sayings, the day when winter is over is on the 24th FEB.
That depends where you are in Finland... :-) South or North. The difference is many weeks between the south coast and Lapland.
This winter has been abnormal here in Central Finland: It's actually raining at the moment. Very little snow.
Let's hope for a speedy spring and warmer weather!
These snowdrops are from May, last spring.

"We’re just mere hours away from the start of Ragnarok, the Viking Apocalypse, a series of events, natural disasters, and battles that lead to the end of the world.
The wolf Fenrir, Loki’s son, will also break out of his prison and there will be an epic battle fought by Norse gods like Odin, Thor, Loki, Týr, Freyr, and Heimdallr.
The Earth will split open and the beings of the underworld will be unleashed..."
Bugger that, I missed the whole thing!

❥ Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain in the center of your chest. It lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back.
❥ Pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.
❥ Shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort.
❥ Other signs such as breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.
As with men, women’s most common heart attack symptom is chest pain or discomfort. But women are somewhat more likely than men to experience some of the other common symptoms, particularly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting and back or jaw pain.
If you have any of these signs, don’t wait more than five minutes before calling for help.

After having the elephant photo as my profile pic since June 2011, it's time for a a new one.
With the wrinkles. :-)
Here is the story behind my elephant pic:
Linda Liukas was at a meeting with officials at the Finnish Ministry of Education when her phone started buzzing.
As she stepped out the room, she discovered that her phone had clogged up with push messages from Kickstarter, the crowd funding exchange site, where her project, a children’s fantasy book aimed at teaching concepts of computer coding, had reached its $10,000 minimum funding goal target in just a few hours, a good measure in terms of time to achieve funding goals.
A Kickstarter project doesn’t end when the funding target is reached, and with two days left to funding deadline, her project has raised more than 340,000 pledged dollars.
The book is called Hello Ruby, and its plot follows a small girl with a huge imagination called Ruby (which is also an open-source programming language), as she stumbles around in a magical world and meets robots and a lonely snow leopard, and solves problems with the help from wise penguins...
