Google+ trends: Flickr gets bigger photos, Apple blocks One X, Evo 4G smartphones from entering US

The popular online destination has introduced high-res photos on the main photo page and a new “liquid” design that adjusts the photo page and image size according to the size of your browser window.

“flickr's finally showing some movement. As a long time user it was a bit sad seeing no changes coming from flickr and slowly losing out to facebook, instagram, etc.” say Google+ users while others link to a Gizmodo article titled “How Yahoo Killed Flickr and Lost the Internet.”

Apple has reportedly blocked imports of HTC’s One X and Evo 4G into the US over patent issues, which may delay the release of the two smartphones in the country.

“The US availability of the HTC One X and HTC EVO 4G LTE has been delayed due to a standard U.S. Customs review of shipments that is required after an ITC exclusion order,” said HTC in a statement. “We believe we are in compliance with the ruling and HTC is working closely with Customs to secure approval.”

Fantasy action role-playing game Diablo 3 was launched in North America, Latin America and Europe on May 15 but Plussers are still talking about the game and posting about how many hours they have spent sitting in front of their computer while playing.

The Los Angeles Kings ice hockey team have beaten the Phoenix Coyotes 4-0, marking their seventh consecutive away game win.

Plussers are linking to articles about Facebook’s Initial Public Offering (IPO) and writing “General Motors is no longer placing ads on Facebook. Who will be next?”
