Get your own Google+ Url

Unlike other social networking sites lke Facebook and Twitter, Google+ doesn’t offer vanity URLs for user profiles, making it more difficult to share your Google+ Profile. Instead, Google uses a long string of numbers to denote users (e.g. 117679391504351387685). 
The reason Google+ doesn’t use vanity URLs is because those could lead to spammers figuring out the email addresses of Google+ users (as many Google Accounts are linked to Gmail accounts).

HP TouchPad

Hewlett Packard launched HP TouchPad on July 1 showcasing its ability to compete in the increasingly crowded tablet market. Powered with the latest version of webOS, the TouchPad looks a lot like its peers:
It's black and shiny with just a few buttons on its frame. The screen, 9.7 inches (24.64 centimeters) at the diagonal, is the same size and resolution as Apple's iPad.


With the launch of Google+, Google has finally developed a product that can reduce the mighty Facebook to the levels of myspace and hi5. Though it is too early to say so, but the concept and its implementation look brilliant.
