Google+ opens up, takes fight to Facebook

Google and Facebook have trotted out a variety of new social networking features in back-to-back, underscoring their intensifying competition for web surfers.

Google integrated its flagship search engine into its three-month old social network - with membership now open to the internet public - and expanded its "Hangouts" video-chat feature to allow mobile use and broadcasting.

The company said on its official blog its well-received Hangouts feature - where up to nine people can link up and chat with a user on video - will be available on camera equipped smartphones powered by its own Android software. Support for Apple iOS devices "is coming soon", it added.

And a user can now host an online broadcast with this feature - recording a session and broadcasting it live for public access online. Black Eyed Peas front man will.i.am will host the first "Hangout on Air" on Wednesday, Google said...

Bill Withers...drilling out as a top leader

Knowing what makes good management, turning profitable business and keeping it that way are just some of the key roles of an effective and intuitive leader. The Financial Review Leadership conference in August this month will be showcasing some of the most prominent and compelling leaders in Australia who will be advising their most valuable management practises that our multigenerational, multicultural and multinational business environment is currently challenged with. Such a leader who will be demonstrating his tools in identifying what is best for the workforce is Bill Withers.

As the Managing Director and founder of acQuire Technology Solutions, a Perth-based exploration and mining software firm and the premier Geoscientific Information Management System (GIMS) , Withers has driven its success since he wrote its original business plan on a plane trip from Brisbane to Perth in August 1996.

Taylor’s diamonds... “Fun when the sun shines”

Taylor’s diamonds... “Fun when the sun shines”

The late Dame Elizabeth Taylor (1932 - 2011) had lived a big life. She had once said,"'The more the better' has always been my motto". Indeed with three Oscars, eight marriages, 12 bestselling fragrances, and countless carats of gemstones, she was a one woman epic, dressed for the part with towering sculptures of ebony hair and artfully blended sweeps of jewel toned shadow. Yet despite her timeless beauty, juicy personal history, and legendary film performances, her most extraordinary role was that of a tireless fundraiser for AIDS awareness. For Taylor, living large meant giving big. Though she never gave up diamonds and dressing gowns, her larger than life persona expanded to include significant largess. She was a very early and very public champion for HIV/AIDS research. She was surrounded by beautiful diamonds, both figuratively and physically. Now her art, clothing, and jewelry collection – which are worth an estimated $145 million – are scheduled to be auctioned off in December at Christie's New York.
