Google+ user #1

This week we read an anonymously sent letter from a top Blackberry exec about the company’s failings, the dance is over for Californians skirting sales taxes online, Zynga files for a billion dollar IPO, hackers announce the President’s assassination, Apple orders 25M iPhone 5s for the fall, Verizon kills all-you-can-eat data, Google may buy Hulu, and ends Realtime search.

After the break we examine the phenomenon that is Google+, one week later, including plans to fold older services into G+. Then we take a first peek at Facebook’s new Skype-integrated video chat.
