Google+ trends: tributes to Bollywood superstar Rajesh Khanna, Nexus 7 tablets arrive

Google+ users are paying tribute to India’s first Bollywood superstar Rajesh Khanna, whose funeral was held on Thursday.

“Rest in peace dear Rajesh Khanna. I love the timeless songs from your movies I grew up watching. I still remember watching ‘Anand’ as a kid. It did have an effect on me and changed my perspective of life,” say Plussers remembering Rajesh Khanna. “Once upon a time, there was a Rajesh Khanna. Men aped him. Women worshipped him. And girls married his photographs, smudged his car with lipsticks.”

Google+ers excitedly post that they have received their Google Nexus 7 tablet and are talking about their first impressions of the device.

“Yay, finally got my #nexus7,” “Some impressive battery stats #Nexus7” and “So far loving the #nexus7 - great size, very responsive and just awesome. So glad I sold my Xoom and bought this,” read some of the comments.   

Others are complaining that the tablet they pre-ordered weeks ago hasn’t arrived and bricks and mortar stores are now selling the device.
