I'm currently trying to acquire an invite (not with any sort of effort, though)...but I'll drop some off here if I get any or when they're nearer to the end of the testing phase.

First look: Google+ lets you hang with a small (or large) circle of friends
Google's latest try at social networking could give Facebook a run for its money

Google's Google+ social networking service, now out in a limited release, isn't the Facebook killer that Google no doubt hopes it will be. However, it's an innovative platform that takes a new approach to social networking by putting you in control of how you share with people. It also includes a number of intriguing features, such as one that makes it easy to ferret out content that interests you and share it with others.

Those who were put off by Google's previous failures in social networking, including Buzz and Wave, will be surprised at the usefulness and simplicity of Google+. It's a worthy enough product that you'd do well to sign up as soon as it's widely available.

The anti-Facebook

In some ways, Google+ is the anti-Facebook. Facebook is predicated on the idea that all "friends" are created equal -- that you want to have the same online relationship with your mother, your best friend since high school, your boss and that person you never met but whose invitation to be a Facebook friend you absentmindedly accepted. Post an update or a photo, and every one of your "friends" sees them -- unless you remember to use Facebook's Custom Privacy box to specify who can or can't see the post.

At first glance, the user interface of Google+ bears a superficial similarity to that of Facebook.

Google+ takes the opposite tack. It lets you create "circles" of friends -- one for your family, one for friends, one for acquaintances, one for work, one for a book group and so on. That way, if you want to share plans for next Thanksgiving with your family and include photos of last Thanksgiving, you can share only with them, rather than with people you work with or people in your book group. You're put firmly in control of whom you communicate with and how you communicate with them.

And it doesn't hurt that Google+ ties into other Google services. Messages sent to you in Google+, for example, show up in Gmail, and chats in Google Talk show up in Google+ and vice versa. Google+ ties into Google's photo site, Picasa, as well.

Well to be clear you can't be 100% sure of anything. DNA testing (and science on the whole) is one of those things and few people would seriously claim that it does. The extent of it's accuracy (99.9% etc) tends to remove reasonable doubt, however.

I want to see a dead body or it didnt happen. He must show in his dead hands 2 forms of government ID, Sarah Palin taking notes and al qaeda 2nd in command on hand to confirm his identity.

I'm guessing you want his long form death certificate?

News / Osama bin Laden Killed by U.S. Strike
« on: May 01, 2011, 11:02:45 PM »


Osama bin Laden, hunted as the mastermind behind the worst-ever terrorist attack on U.S. soil, has been killed, sources told ABC News.

His death brings to an end a tumultuous life that saw bin Laden go from being the carefree son of a Saudi billionaire, to terrorist leader and the most wanted man in the world.

Bin Laden created and funded the al Qaeda terror network, which was responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States. The Saudi exile had been a man on the run since the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan overthrew the ruling Taliban regime, which harbored bin Laden.

...because for god's sake I don't think there's anything in comics that is even remotely as good as his current creative exodus.

He's amazing in his own right...but his run on Batman has set and surpassed the bar on what can be done with the medium.

Go read it from the very beginning.
