Actually, I reckon that they shouldn't use https. That way, we have no expectation of security and therefore cannot be disappointed :)
Extreme forum posting. Only not in the way 4chan is famous for..

The move is Mountain View's latest attempt to create some buzz around its ID-slurping "network thingy", which the ad giant has failed to successfully market as an alternative to Facebook or …

But someone at Google thought that going all full steam against the farcebooks of the world was a good idea.

Yes, the paranoid on me says that if they're pushing it on you it can't be good for you. It's like that pretty girl throwing herself at you on the street, she must be full of stds! But the same girl on a club it's the one of your dreams if she just glances at you. Still full of stds...
I was an early, early rube on G+. Then I discovered it TOTALLY screwed up the Picasa album sharing process.
