We kick off the show with a the latest and greatest to hit the Internet from the guys over at Google, being Google+.  What does the service mean for the average guy? Will people use Hangouts?   What does it mean for Facebook?  Will people switch?  Circles?  Will this fix the list problem?

Listen Mobile:

As well as the launch of Google+, Google have also made some seemingly minor, but significant changes to the look and feel of Gmail, as well as the search page that we are all so familiar with.  You’ll notice that there is now a black navigation bar across the top of your Google search windows, with shortcuts to Google tools such as Gmail, Calendar, Google Maps, Google ImagesNews, and Video, all starting with your +Name.  The new look and feel can be seen throughout all of the Google Applications – check it out over at www.google.com
