A few times recently I’ve found myself using Google+ instead of email (when sharing with my techie friends and colleagues), and just discovered a compelling reason to do that – you can edit a post after you’ve shared it. :)
Of course, I’m not ready to give up inboxes, labels, filters, stars and all that Gmail goodness… but this is an interesting trend for me personally.

Use iTunes Match to upgrade your older purchases to higher bit-rate DRM-free music and then upload it to Google Music for free. :)
How to upgrade tracks to iTunes Match, fast
by +Jason Snell Macworld.com Nov 14, 2011 8:35 pm
“So you’ve bought iTunes Match, which gives you access to shiny new 256kbps AAC versions of your audio files. But by default your iTunes library is still packed with your old files. So how best to upgrade all of those old files, in place, to the new versions?”
Hat tip to +Danny Silva for the link. I went through these steps this morning, and left iTunes downloading the upgraded files. When I got back to my computer this afternoon, Google Music was automagically uploading the new tracks. (Note: This tutorial doesn’t explain how to setup Google Music – you’ll need to do that independently. It was already setup in my case and worked perfectly… though I may have some duplicate songs in Google Music though because of this… I’m not sure if the duplicates were already there.)

This looks like a great deal on Android phones (if you happen to care where your money goes… and happen to be progressive or left-leaning in your political views): http://action.credomobile.com/specialoffers/nov11/monsanto.html?ph=droid&pc=314294&&id=30991-2504876-oD4bD7x&t=2
