You mean, the way you can log in to one of g's tentacles and if you forget to log out, you find yourself pre-logged-in next week when you happen to visit one of the other tentacles?
Well I tend to use my Twitter account, not Gooogle, but I don't mind still being logged in as it's all annoying and I like being able to get access without jumping thru hoops.
Seriously, I have hundreds of passwords, maybe thousands, it's simple too much and OpenAuth solves the problem.
Not like I'd want to use it for banking for anything like that, but the forums and blogs I visit and post on regularly would most certainly be fine to have a single login.
It also avoids the problem of someone trying to steal your online name and fake an account in your name because everyone would know your Twitter/Facebook/G+ account was the real thing, especially if it's verified :)
My understanding is that "everybody" uses FaceBook and "nobody" uses Google+.
Who are you calling a nobody?
Guess I know a bunch of nobodies then.
Seriously, I was surprised when a bunch of my old school techie friends jumped all over the G+ stuff and now use it as their primary social media site.
Plus I'm sure G+ may also be used as a signal in Google Search, or will be soon, kind of like voting up an article in Digg back in the day.
