Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great and productive week. So, this week, we finally found out what the whole “big secret” Microsoft was hiding from the world. Surface, which according to Microsoft is “a great PC that works like a tablet, a tablet that works like a PC”, was revealed on Monday. Initial analysis indicates that the soon to be born PC/tablet, may just have what it takes to rival Apple’s iPad and other existing devices. Don’t know about you, but if the price is right and they get it to work properly (MS has always an oopps moment), I may just get my hands on one Microsoft Surface folie, as soon as it gets out. How about you? What do you think of the Microsoft Surface? Will consider buying one? Why, why not?
First look… You can also watch the full presentation here.
On another front, George Takei (Star Trek celebrity), talks about his experience with FaceBook and why he loves it over “other” networks. The interesting part about the whole story is the mission Stephanie Van Pelt launched on Google+ to convince George Takei to use the network. He said that if he got 250K people circling him on G+, then he may consider using the network, to prove that it is not a “ghost town”. As of today he already amassed 63K+ and counting.
All right all. It's here. It's #TakeiTuesday ! Help us get @GeorgeTakei to join us over here on G+!!!!
Send him a Tweet and let him see all the G+ love we have to offer!
I don't know about you, but I'd love to see #GeorgeTakei join us here on G+. Just putting the word out there that I'm on a mission to get his attention. I was thinking that on #TakeiTuesday it might be a nice time to try to reach him on Twitter @GeorgeTakei to show him how much love he'd see from this community.
All right my Trekkers, who's in?
Finally, if you heard about the new FaceBook plugin, you may want to consider reading what people have to say first, before thinking of installing the plugin. It is very promising indeed and I am testing it on a demo site. For now, I am waiting for the next update, which I hope would address the issues mentioned by users on the forum. If you really want to give it a go, this quick tutorial, should help. Yeah, its not your normal install and activate plugin.
