In the case of smart watches, the screen sizes are too small for the category - at least in its current format - to go mainstream. Look at what happened with smartphones, the screen size continually crept up until it reached around five inches. There's an optimum screen size somewhere - whatever it is, it will be bigger than the inch or so on wrist devices.

One other overlooked aspect of wearables — the screens are too tiny to be useful. Look how excited everyone got when smartphone screens got bigger. There's an optimum minimum screen size and whatever that size is, it's larger than the one inch or so displays on smartwatches.

All good points, but my Google+ experience has shown up two annoying flaws.

1. It's impossible to know what's going on. If I go to my feeds or whatever they are called, old messages sit at the top of the page. Newer ones are scattered throughout - that's just confusing.

2. About 50% of the people following me, or adding or whatever the term Google+ uses is, are flaky. The only option Google's email message gives me is to follow them - what's more it bundled the non-flaky incoming requests with the flaky ones.

I hope Google+ is a work in progress and some of these rough edges get knocked off before too much longer.
