I can’t entirely figure out why Google’s opted for such a limited release. Surely one of the largest tech companies in the world can’t be short of server capacity? (disclaimer: I am not a network engineer). If it’s just for testing and early feedback, and it’s not ready yet, then why the all-singing, all-dancing assault of videos explaining what it does?
I’d have thought Google would have learnt the lessons of the Wave fiasco. That doesn’t appear to have been the case. Google+ might the best social service that the world has ever seen, but until it’s widely accessible, it’ll be terrible.
