Woz delivers a Mac

It’s not everyday that you see Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple, the multi-billion dollar technology company that makes all our iPhones, iPads and Macs, deliver a Mac computer right at the doorstep.

Got my Google+ invite today. I think it’s going to be the first social service from Google that I will actually use besides eMail. Google+ has several features you’d expect from a social software like streams, photo/video/link sharing and group chat.

If you’ve used JoinDiaspora, it’s similar to its Aspect feature. All the social networking software that i’ve used so far, except Google+ and JoinDiaspora, does not allow multiple channel relationships which I believe is an essential ingredient to a good social software. Not even Facebook has it — yes you can classify people into lists but that’s just about what you can do.
