Re: Disaggregating the smart phone...
I think that's the strategy here - by disaggregating the smart phone, Google can gain better marginal profit.

Re: Disaggregating the smart phone...
I'm looking forward to finding out whether Google can make modularity competitive on price. I assume that having multiple components magnifies cost, since each module needs to show a profit. With a traditional phone, there's only one profit margin to consider.

Disaggregating the smart phone...
The  smart phone is so smart because it uses a mobile computer for functions that have little to do with phone messaging. Just as these functions were gathered together into a market leading iPhone, they could be disaggregated into a set of devices, discreetely connected together by one operating system, and using the phone's display and keyboard. That way, you could talk to someone at your destination at the same time you were using GPS to find it. Project Ara is most interesting, to me.

Re: Photos now divorced from Gogle+
@AngelFuego - thanks. I feel like I am usually wayyyyyy behind on most of these things here. If the first time I'm hearing about it is here I feel like I've failed.

Re: Google's Celebration Of Diversity

@mak63    You raise some great questions.   I agree.  It really is amazing that a computer can now fit on an SD card.  It takes a lot for us to be impressed today, but this certainly does it.

 

I had not even considered the implications as of yet, but now that you mention them - you are right again, this type of computing power in the wrong hands could potentially wreak havoc !

 

Ironic that computing expansion is making the World better and (far) worse by degrees.

Re: Photos now divorced from Gogle+

@Progman2000    I see.  Well if it works for you that is the main thing.  Some have unrealistic expectations when it comes to these types of services. 

I would probably use it if I had to - especially for as you mention freelance materials.

Re: Google's Celebration Of Diversity
@Technocrati. I agree, Project Vault looks promising and interesting. It's really amazing that they can put a tiny computer in a microSD card. I like the idea that you can use your own (kinda) OS in your phone or computer, and have encrypted communication with another person. I wonder if the Vault will be misused for people with not all that good intentions.

@majiec

I thought of Marty's jacket too. I'll be in line for the shirt as well, when it gets the blow dry technology... ;)

@nasimson

I agree, it is good that they acknowledge that Google+ was a flop. Nice try though...
