Google Buzz and Augmented Reality

Google buzz is here to stay. There are some annoying factors around following and conversation threading but other than that I like it.

Here is a screen shot for Buzz:

Already the spam and porn accounts have jumped on. This adoption is even more faster than what happened with Twitter.

I would have to say that Google came out at the right time. Especially with the latest change that Facebook has implemented. I’ve talked to quite a few people about this Facebook change it does seem that it made the system more confusing.

I know I don’t like it, but I also have close to 4,800 friends so this might have something to do with the usability.

Augmented Realty

One of the best uses of augmented reality I have seen is here from Microsoft.

The technology here is amazing. The uses and interaction are stunning. This type of feature set is the key to this reality taking off.
