Google tells me to be on the lookout for a better Google+ notification experience in email in the next week.
And by “email” they mean Gmail. And by “better” they mean more precious email real estate given up to a service that I don’t use. And by “to users who’ve upgraded to Google+” they mean everyone, since you can’t seem to get rid of Google+ no matter what you do.
Great products are not forced on users. Google’s a little more like Microsoft every day.
Thank God for IMAP.
