Google+ gets search…and more

For those still using Google+, here’s an update for you:

The Google+ project has been in field trial for just under 90 days, and in that time we’ve made 91 different improvements (many of which are posted here). Google+ is still in its infancy, of course, but we’re more excited than ever to bring the nuance and richness of real-life sharing to software. Today we’re releasing nine more features that get us that much closer.

9 new features:
– Hangouts on the phone (Android now, iOS later)
– Hangouts On Air: Same as before, but you can broadcast to as many people as possible and also record the session
– Hangout extras (counts as 4): Screensharing, Sketchpad, Google Docs and Named Hangouts
– Hangout API
– Search (duh!)
– Open to everyone, no invites necessary anymore (if you aren’t a Google Apps user)

Google Street View cars in Cologne

Got this image via the internets. I ran across one of Google’s cars a few weeks ago (could also be 1-2 months). Looks like it can’t be too long until we see a german version of Street View.
