    But I don't see why they even bothered to announce KitKat. I mean, beyond the fact that its name will be KitKat, what has Google said ?

    So great, its name will be KitKat. That's so interesting.

    It's marketing, you get people talking about your product.

    No different than last year's JB -- all we knew was the name until about mid-Oct.

    Jellybean was released with the Nexus 7 in July 2012 (June if you were lucky enough to get one at I/O)

    I knew that...

    Still, we knew nothing about JB until shortly before that time.

    Nobody's on Google +?
    October 24 is the announcement.
    I hope that means Nexus 5 then too.

    Someone needs to write an app that generates patterns of vapor on your screen, and then name it "vaporware". That, my friends, would be pretty damn epic.

    Nobody's on Google +?
    I have an account there, but I've never used it. Nobody I know is on there (well, ok, one person I know is on there) so I don't see much of a point in bothering with it.

    Where did you get the date from? Can't seem to find it anywhere.

    Google+ isn't Facebook. It isn't just about people you know. Follow some people, ideas, trends, and concepts you are interested in, and you'll see the difference. Follow KitKat and you'll see where I got that date from.

    I'm still left wondering why it's just never really caught on. I remember when Google was really talking it up as the next big thing. They did much the same thing with Wave, which they did get rid of, and I can remember wondering how long it would be before they got rid of Plus.

    In fact, I'm still kind of asking that same question.

    Would you consider Twitter and LinkedIn to have not taken off?
    More people post on Plus than either of those.
    I can ask them to stop if you're eager for Plus to go away.

    I found Google+ had heaps of mates join on the first week of release then went nowhere, its picking up with members but not really posts for my circles.
