Am I the only one who's pissed about Google+? Come on Goog, you want people to jump on your "social network", but you don't want them to. I'm confused.  If it wasn't ready for prime time, the it shouldn't have been released.  All your doing is putting a bad taste in everyone's mouth.

You open it for registration, then shut it down less than a week later.  You have billions, but yet can't build enough server space? Are hamsters running the Google+ servers? Did Mark Z. call you and tell you to stop before he calls his mommy for you?

Seriously, I've only heard great review, and you are only killing the momentum by keeping people out.  I'm I saying this because I am one of the people who can't get in? OK, that's part of it.  But I have heard enough people wanting to get in and it is obvious that it's hot.

Ok, it's only been a week, actually not even. And yes, you did say it was limited field trial, but that doesn't save you from the criticism.  YOU ARE GOOGLE. Let us in. Save me from that other "social network"

My First Post

My technology friends, this will be my sounding board for probably my favorite subject to speak on, anything tech.  From smartphones, to TV technology, to car tech.  I love groundbreaking innovation.  Have you heard about Lytro? NVidia's Kal-el chip? Google+?

A little bit about me.  I am 35 years young, and while I am not a computer geek, I have spent 26 of those years in front of a PC.   I subscribe to dozens of tech sites, so I keep in the know.  I love gadgets, and spend 95% of my time awake using some gadget or another.  There's nothing like a well made piece of electronic hardware.

I read a lot, and of course have opinions.  I felt this would be a good way to exercise my view points.  And I want to hear from you as well. Hey, If I'm wrong, let me know, then I'll prove you wrong again, just kidding. Let's discuss it, argue, yell, scream, laugh, whatever gets the point across.
