Google Tips: Sharing posts in Google Reader

“The latest Reader update is "a disaster". One of the reasons could be that most of the initial members of the Reader team left Google and the new team doesn't understand the goal of the product”, says Brian Shih, a former Google Reader Product Manager.
"It's as if whoever made the update did so without ever actually using the product to, you know, read something. Reader is a product built to consume information, quickly. We designed it to be very good at that one thing. G+ is an experience built around browsing (similar to Facebook) and socializing. Taking the UI paradigm for G+ and mashing it onto Reader without any apparent regard for the underlying function is awful and it shows," says Brian.



There's also a privacy downside: +1's are public, even if you only want to share a post with one or two people. Moreover, Brian says that sharing a post in the new interface is much difficult than ever. Now, it is required to click "+1", then click "Share on Google+", select your audience and then click the "Share" button instead of clicking "Share" or using a keyboard shortcut. Besides, +1's are public, even if you only want to share a post with one or two people. This is a major flaw of the new interface. However, there is a way to share a post without first clicking +1. From the Google’s navigation bar, you can use the “Share” box.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications.

The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou…
