The Man behind Google+

Google has boldly revealed its new face on 28th of June, 2011 by challenging the biggest social networking sites of our times, Facebook and Twitter. Google Plus has been in a process of development ever since the failure of Google’s first social networking site, Orkut. Several alternative ideas have been tested such as Google Buzz, Google Wave etc. but were not big enough to compete with its rivals. Never mind the struggles, the tough gets awesome by repeated attempts, and hence Google is back with a bang. We are yet to see whether it’s worth the present hype. However, Google+ is obviously a strong rival for Facebook, which has got over 750 million active users.  Google+ is fresh and fun. With the initial survey reports, there are 280% active registrations going on worldwide for Google+. The interesting fact is, large communities of Facebook users are still unaware of the new Google magic.

Now to break the silence, the master brain behind Google+ is that of an IIT (Indian Institute of Technology) graduate from India. It’s none other than Vic Gundotra, the Senior Vice President of Social for Google. Born in 1968, he fell in love with the power of software in his childhood days. He joined Microsoft in 1991, and later became the General Manger of Platform Evangelism, a part of Microsoft. He specialized mainly on Windows Live services and MSN to compete with the Web based software applications of Google. In 2006, he signed an agreement with Google and resigned from Microsoft. After spending 1 year in charitable endeavors due to a Microsoft employee non-compete agreement, he joined Google in 2007.

At Google, he has played a major role in the realization of Google Real-time Search, Google Buzz, Development of Android applications, Google Gadgets, Google Gears etc. The biggest contribution being the inception of Google+.

Google+ is an integration of Google profiles and Google Buzz along with new additional features such as +1, Circles, Hangouts, Sparks and Huddles. Google+ is way much advanced in comparison with Facebook in areas such as E-mail, Voice & Video chats, News features etc. Though Facebook has recently integrated Skype, its way much behind the Video call experience offered by Google+.

+1 is a feature much similar to the ‘’Like’’ of Facebook.

Circles, is the revolutionizing feature of Google+ offering a new social networking experience enabling users to group people without any social obligations. This is much different from the traditional friends list used in Facebook. It helps users to categorize the people into separate circles without letting the people know where exactly they have been placed. The user’s advantage here is in having the privacy of not revealing how many and what all circles he/she has. Hence other users could see the list of friends in ones profile as in Facebook, but they will be completely unaware of the circles. This eases and adds more fun to the networking experience.

Hangouts, is actually an enhanced version of the conference video calling in Skype.  It comes with more user friendly features like having around 10 people in a group video chat at any given time.

Huddle, is a messaging or chat like feature within any given circle, available in Android and i0S mobile devices.
         Instant upload is a feature for mobile devices enabling users to store pictures and upload when they wish to.
            Sparks, is an enhanced Google search feature which works in a customized fashion.

Personally I find Google+ more advanced in every possible way. Am loving its fresh and simple interface. It was Orkut which took me into the world of social networking and was an active user for almost 3 years. Then, to keep up with the race, I finally configured a space in Facebook. In between I got into Twitter and LinkedIn. Social networking sites have always been an integral part of our lives with lots of personal attachments mainly owing to the people involved. One thing which we should keep in mind, no matter what social network we are into, is nurturing and prospering with our real life relationships.

The Silent Global Warfare: HAARP.

Having been through almost 8000 earthquakes and still counting, I obviously felt something fishy about the natural source of these stupid DJ’s rocking down the earth. I wasn’t disappointed in my quest for alternative sources. Alarming and shocking were the possibilities of manmade impacts in the present scenario. The potential of a US military venture known as the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) designed as part of a Strategic Defence Initiative (SDI), in being a serious threat to the planet is horrifying. An understanding of the research schemes and the execution of the basic experiments at these sites is more than enough to throw dirt on the glorified image of HAARP.  

According to Wikipedia, HAARP is an ionospheric research program jointly funded by the US Air Force, the US Navy, the University of Alaska and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Its purpose is to analyze the ionosphere and investigate the potential for developing ionospheric enhancement technology for radio communications and surveillance purposes. The objectives put forward for this mysterious research work includes improvement of communication and navigation systems, remote sensing of mineral and oil content throughout the planet, observation of meteors, Lunar echo experiment on extra-terrestrial high frequency radar echo’s and other high profile crappy stuffs !!  It's quite interesting to note, how systematically the defence personnel’s have disguised the potential of this technology in jeopardising the global warfare’s in ways humans could hardly manage.

Loads of critical environmental concerns have been raised against HAARP, as its very basic working involves disruption of our ionosphere. Possible outcomes from such manipulation of our atmosphere could generate serious natural disasters ranging from earthquakes, drastic variations in global weather patterns, hurricanes, floods and even flipping of Earth’s magnetic poles!! It’s shocking that the tax paying people out there are totally unaware of the kind of battlefield in which they are trapped in. It’s big time for the world to wake up and fight against the cruel intentions of these heartless watchdogs playing with human lives, in the name of classified military training experiments. What if I say, Haiti, Japan and Christchurch are mere test fields or rather targets for the technicians working at these high security defence research centres?

This geo engineered tectonic weaponry is originally based on technologies developed by Nicola Tesla almost a century ago. HAARP uses a billion watts of power to manipulate the Electro Magnetic Field (EMF) of our planet, creating extremely lethal frequencies known to profoundly affect the biological and mental functioning of all the living beings on earth. The disruptions of these magnetic fields could create vibrations dangerous enough to vigorously shake the tectonic plates. It’s frightening that the outcomes of this fatal weaponry are beyond the control of human hands. These unconventional deadly weapons have been in use for a long time by the cold blooded crazy scientists and security personnel’s of the powerful nations, to manipulate world population by creating secret weather warfare’s. The droughts in Venezuela, floods in Pakistan, heat wave in Russia, frequent storms and hurricanes in US, recent earthquake’s in Haiti, NewZealand and Japan; Tsunami in Indonesia etc. are some of them.

The people of these days should stop drowning within the entertainment tactics forced upon them by the new world system and arise with superior intellect, intelligence, courage and moral fibre to fight for a green and peaceful life on this planet. If you are still not convinced about this deadly technology, checkout this not so popular unclassified report The Defense science board’s Task Force on Directed Energy Weapons.’’ Straight from the office of the secretary of US defense and start connecting the dots.
