So are you used the Facebook Like Button yet? Do you use it all? I try to stay away from it as much as possible, because I don’t want that company’s feed or product crap in my news feed on Facebook, but there are a few select. Well it seems that earlier this week, Google wanted to get in in on the action. There’s isn’t so much just a product placement thing, but more of a recommendation engine, powered by your friends and colleagues. This new idea is called Google +1. The idea is that you can click on something to +1 it, and it shows up in your friend’s search results next time they might be searching for something that you have searched for previously. It is the same basic idea that the Like button is on Facebook, but as of yet, isn’t as intrusive in your personal stuff. This will help you in future purchases, research or just about anything Google has their finger in. So I say, go give it a try and see if you like it. Check out the video below from the Official Google Blog:

Well it seems the iRadar app/detector combo is finally coming to Android phones next month! It seems according to Engadget that the device was announced at the gdgt event at SXSW in Austin, Texas. It has been out for the iOS party for quite a while now, and somehow I missed this. This little device does 360 degree radar and laser protection and uses bluetooth to communicate to your iPhone to give you visual warnings as well. This all will be the same as it is ported over to the Android platform, so here is a video to give you an idea to be on the lookout for next month android users:
Ok, so this is way uberly, nerdy cool. This kid took a Kinect and turned it into a home automation system. Watch the full video below, its cool how he can setup different zones for different lights to be on. Now the only thing is, I would have to go back to a studio apartment or get a house with a man cave!
