Google- In Social Media

So, you want to know who defriended you or removed you from a Circle on Google+?  Are you sure you want to know?

Google- (Google Minus) is an application that monitors the circles you are in and notifies you when you are removed.  It's a shame it doesn't come with a reason, or perhaps its a blessing that you don't have to enter a reason when removing someone from a circle.

GMail getting an updated look.

I've been using Google Labs for awhile and tweaking the theme that I use, but I'm not a fan of the upcoming design update. Supposedly a more modern email experience, with broad headings and large buttons. Web 3.0?

Either way, thanks to labs I'll hopefully be able to keep generic old gmail design for as long as possible. What do you think of the update?
