Inbox by Gmail will have invite system

It seems that all the buzz about Gmail's Inbox app is about to get louder. Google has decided that it would prefer to let its new service, and competitor to Mail (owned by Dropbox), grow virally rather than use its enormous user base to force its growth. This is an interesting approach as it was how gmail started, as well as the approach that Mail did when it first launched. There are some who believe that this is more of a marketing ploy than anything else. I personally do not agree. I believe that this is more about making sure that the user base is grown naturally and slowly so as to build a strong evangelical user seed base. This is what I believe was wrong with Google Plus. Google Plus is a great service, but no one uses it, and I believe this is because the service had no leaders. I believe that Google has learned from this mistake, and is trying a different approach. I, as a marketer, am definitely curious to see how this works out.

@onesmile same here, if it weren't for Youtube, I wouldn't even have my profile. I'm excited about this new inbox. I really want an invite! :P
This sounds pretty awesome to me; I agree I really hated Google+ mostly because they made me use it to get my youtube working, and I still don't want to use it! It's kind of ridiculous, but this seems way more appealing because I don't have to use it. This seems like a good planning tool, but I'll have to try myself before I really pass judgement on it~
I really wish I could have inbox right now. ..looks so cool!!

Google Play is SHADY!!
Que tal peeps! SO I'M NOT TRYING TO START ANYTHING BUT AFTER SPEAKING TO GOOGLE PLAY O THOUGHT I SHOULD SPREAD THE NEWS. I'VE NOTIVE THAT THE SONGS THAT I PURCHASE FROM GOOGLE PLAY WERE NOT TRANSFERRING TO MY OFFLINE MUSIC APP THAT COMES WITH MY PHONE. WHEN USING AMAZON MUSIC ALL I HAD TO DO WAS PRESS DOWNLOAD AND ALL MY MUSIC WAS SYNCED TO MY OFFLINE PLAYER. WELL IN MY LAST CARD I WAS SO HYPED ABOUT GOOGLE PLAY HAVING THE ELECTRONIC VERSION OF BTS HER "L" VERSION X WAS ABOUT TO BUY THE ISH. THEN IT DAWNED UPON ME...HOW WOULD I GET IT TO MY OFFLINE PLAYER. THAT IS WHAT I WAS TOLD. I'M LIKE YALL SHOULD AT LEAST WARN PPL BEFORE WE BUY X WHAT IF SOMEONE DID NOT HAVE A COMPUTER?! I TOLD THEM THEY ARE SHADY AND IF AMAZON COULD MAKE MUSIC ACCESS EASY IN 2017 THEY SHOULD TOO. GOOGLE GET TOO MUCH MONEY TO NOT HAVE THIS FEATURE. SO LONG STORY SHORT IF U BUY MUSIC FROM GOOGLE PLAY KNOW THAT YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DOWNLOAD IT DIRECTLY 2 UR OFFLINE PLAYER. IF YOU DON'T HAVE A COMPUTER U MIGHT BE SCREWED! @strawberrylover @sukkyongwanser @TaeSky @divanicola05 @BabydollBre @SimplyAwkward @QueenPandaBunny @Vay754 @MissMinYoongi @EvilGenius @punkpandabear @Seera916 @VeronicaArtino @RKA916 @jiminakpop @PolarStarr @jjrockstar @SarahHibbs @kitkatkpop @simpsonsamantha @AraceliJimenez @SweetDuella @CArcelia @Gracielou0717 @DefSoul1994 @EvodiaEbraheem @JustBrea @FernandaMedina @aliendestina @KayLeeRose94 @IsoldaPazo @AgentLeo @Starbell808 @KoizuniHime19 @AlexisJ15 @impulsegurl666 @MonieManhiM @EvodiaEbraheem @Ttwolf74 @gyapitt @krystalrikpop @Indiglow @KarenGuerra93 @StephaniePoore @MRich @JJiBin @JohannaTlatench
Virtual Reality Lets You Hang With Totoro
British VR developers FirePanda have been hard at work the last few years. While most of the anticipation surrounding Virtual Reality has been game-centric, there are other VR developers who understand that there might be people interested in VR, but not in the gaming aspects of it. FirePanda are using VR for larger goals than just games (though they do have a game or two as well). They've used VR as an educational tool, for medical students to get some virtual hands-on practice in a RESUS room. They've also now begun rolling out little VR experiences taken directly from the films of Studio Ghibli. Check out this VR video: If you don't have any kind of VR headset like myself, this is a hard video to watch properly. The VR displays a mirrored image onto both of your eyes, hence the two displays in the video. Without the headset, this is just a strange video. But iconic. Everyone who's an anime fan has seen Totoro, and even if you haven't, you'd be familiar with the rotund spirit. So far, they have VR-d scenes from My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, and Howl's Moving Castle. My personal favorite is the Howl's Moving Castle one, because the scene they picked is the fields outside of the house from Howl's childhood. That is definitively my favorite setting in the film, and the chance to experience it in VR is astounding to me. I don't have a VR headset yet, but if I ever get one, this is the first thing I'm gonna do. Check out all the anime VR stuff FirePanda has to offer here.

Underwater Eco-Village Plans Released
Sometimes science and technology boggles my MIND. And today was one of those days. CNN released some incredible images of what Belgian architect Vincent Callebaut is designing and planning, an underwater village he is calling an Aequorea. These 'oceanscrapers' will be constructed using recycled plastics from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. The design has plans for houses, as well as science labs, offices, hotels, sports fields and farms across 250 floors and reach a depth of up to 1,000 meters (3,280 feet). The Ocean is a huge resource too. Desalinated ocean water it will be used for drinking. Micro algae will be used for farming and organic waste. Also, sunlight would be provided through bioluminescence. So far, it's just in the concept and research stage. But other attractions like this have worked across the world, including a hotel in Dubai that has underwater rooms. I couldn't be more excited about these images and the plans. Please excuse me as I sing "Under the Sea" for the remainder of the day. Ocean and Tech buddies-- what are your thoughts? @Cereal03 @RobertMarsh @loftonc16 @thefeels @missophiestik @ButterflyBlu @Krazypoet @marshalledgar @quietone @Luci546 @smnthcarter773 @DroPuenteAG93 @ChriSingularis @Emescia @nikkinjg @TessStevens @konaskorner @DaivonUnderwood @gaeljames92 @Zekiya @Krazypoet @AzamSharif @NerukaWong @shantalcamara @RachelParker @TessStevens @ZacharyColeHall @RaquelArredondo @ChriSingularis @lovelikematoi @danidee @thefeels @ChosenKnight @Ambie @WiviDemol @ButterflyBlu @inuyashagal @ToniEliseHolden @BeannachtOraibh @Aubrey1990 @MaighdlinS @DasiaB @Aubrey1990
