Use This Handy Trick to Battle Rude, Reclining Airplane Passengers

Washington Post columnist Gene Weingarten knows that flying is uncomfortable enough (strict carry-on rules, awkward TSA patdowns) without a rude invasion of space by your fellow passengers. Cramped quarters on most airplanes make it downright inhumane to recline your seat, minimizing the already-meager leg room of the person behind you.

In an effort to avoid such problems, Weingarten created a printable card for travelers that asks the occupants of the seats in front of them to refrain from reclining.

The Google+ Project Takes Aim at Facebook [VIDEO]

After several prior failed attempts to challenge social media behemoth Facebook, Google introduced a new service on Tuesday that it hopes will finally do the trick.

Called the Google+ project, it’s currently only available to a select group of Google users — they’ll soon be able to invite others — and it will let people share and discuss status updates, photos and links, just like they do on Facebook.

But there’s one key difference: Google+ allows you to share with select groups — like co-workers, friends or the moms in your child’s playgroup — instead of with everyone. It features what it calls “circles,” which are small groups of friends based on how you know them. Google+ also offers group text messaging and video chat.
