The Verge Takes On Online Photo Storage Services
/via +Casey Newton for +The Verge 

Regarding Google+, he says: "Google’s take on photos is still easy to recommend. It offers you unlimited free uploads at a size of 2048 pixels, and it applies some really fun effects to your photos: turning bursts of pictures into looping GIFs, and automatically creating slick vacation photo albums whenever you spend a few days away from home.

Friends are always complaining to me that their camera roll is insanely huge and they can never get through it all. This little app actually makes it fun. It's $1 but it's the most useful iPhone utility I've seen this year.
The Verge
When iOS 8 came out requiring 5+ gigabytes of available storage to upgrade over the air, many of us feed up space the easiest way we know how: deleting lots of photos on our camera rolls. The thing...

I went to Europe and back with the industrial designer Yves Behar. Here's what I learned.
