Troubles with G+ & Chrome, photos and sorting / upload and multitasking

I can't deal with the incompetency of Google programmers... yeah, they have their beautiful offices with toys and relax area like children and so on... but they really haven't the mind ready for the user experience.

Now I'm uploading on G+ some pictures, obviously the upload order doesn't matter at all and they are uploaded in a messed up order.
G+ can't into selection files order (if I upload fileC, fileD, fileB, fileA I expected that the files will be sorted with my order)

So, how can I obtain the right pictures order?
Renaming (with Powershell) all photos in file_00001, file_00002?
Nope, because G+ can't into natural sorting too. (

Date sorting in the album settings doesn't work (don't know why).
Manually sorting 300+ pictures? I don't think so Jim.

Chrome... I said I'm uploading pics in G+, so I have 1 tab with G+ website and other tabs.
When the G+ tab is visible the upload process uses the max upload bandwidth, when I'm in another tab (doing nothing, the webpage is loaded, nothing nothing nothing) or the browser is reduced to the taskbar there's no upload or minimum usage of upload bandwidth.
Is this multitasking? I should look the progress bar in the G+ tab for all the time to speed up things?
How can this feature be useful to the user?

Red = upload
red peaks = upload, when G+ tab is visible
red -flat- line = upload, when G+ is not visible, another tab selected

Apparently the productivity of multitasking is no longer fashionable (Windows 8 modern UI docet)

This is the analysis of a user about the two mobile operating systems using them in several devices.
I agree with many of his observations.

The html5test says clearly that this browser has the better support of HTML5.

In my old pc versus Chrome 18 and Firefox Aurora 13, DOM test:

Try and test it by yourself: it has a lot of built-in features!

Some comments from a tech-blog:

I use both iOS and Android and I really don’t think the notifications experience is better on iOS than on Android..
Apple’s implementation is not as good as Android’s.
Tell me one thing it does better than Android’s. One.
You won’t find one (against ICS).

Dat answer:
The ability to view notification center within a full screen app

And I agree. Can't be that Android-ICS developers have not thought about that and iOS 5 was shipped with a better "Notifications"  feature.

Top & Flop of 2011

About tech, games and other things.

- Android mobile OS: downloads from the market and impressive number of activations, ICS (Android 4) is released
- Apple Iphone 4S: despite a few news and the same design, has sold a lot
- Tablets, tablets everywhere, Kindle gold year too

- Samsung and Apple patents war: Apple is ruining its name with its patents troll war
- Apple MacOsx Lion: good sales, but a lot of bugs, many users complained
- Nintendo 3DS: nobody gives a sh** about this (no games)
- Sony was hacked a lot of times, stolen user data
- Duke Nukem 3D: after years proves a disappointment
- 3D Tv: who bought them?
- Google with Google Plus (can't beat Facebook) and Google Wave (it's closing)
- Chromebooks: google laptops that cost as a normal laptop but only work online

In the middle (can't say if is a top or a flop, next year maybe):
- Metro interface on Windows 8: we see only the Developer Preview so we can't say anything (waiting for Beta)

I forgot something?
