Comment: Poor social media integration (Score 4, Interesting) 456 456

Google+ has poor integration with other social mediaapps. Foursquare, Yelp, Twitter, instagram, Pinterest, Flipboard. All these share with each other or at least twitter and facebook. Google+ isn't even an option, and you have to manually copy or create updates on it, which is annoying.

Every time I mention to my social network of 200 that Google+ is dead or dying, I get the same 5 people who say it isn't and also happen to be the only 5 people in my circles who share anything.

Comment: OS/2 Somehow still alive (Score 1) 342 342

Some community banks still run OS/2 to power their Voice Banking systems. The reason being is that the hardware dies before the software does.
The other amazing thing is how OS/2 will run on PC's just made a few years ago. As long as it has a PS/2 port, IDE port, and a PCI slot for your ancient 3com NIC.
