+Google have decided that I can't buy any more apps ever, unless I send them copies of bank accounts and passports due to EU law making it a requirment for payment providers to verify the identity of users. (They said "federal" but I thought I'd let that pass).  This is utterly crazy, I don 't need Google to be a bank.  I've always used my real name and address when signing up for Google products, and I've only ever make a handful of transactions rarely above €10, most are 1 euro apps.  I've been on the phone to them to tell them how unhappy I am and escalated up to management but to no avail. 

Google have to stop pretending to be a bank and just let us buy stuff. I've been a fan and advocate of Google products since day one.  It's such a shame that it has to end this way. I'll be due a new phone soon and do you know what kind of phone I'll be getting?  Not an Android. And so much for my plan to replace Dropbox with Google Drive...looks like that won't be happening either. 

Warning to all other Android users...according to Wallet support, you'll probably be asked to supply these sensitive documents so you too can continue buying apps from the Play Store.

I think I've just found the source of my atheism, some 24 years ago:

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Dr. Barron, I cannot, I will not impose a set of commandments on these people. To do so violates the very essence of the Prime Directive! 
Dr. Barron: Like it or not, we have rekindled the Mintakans' belief in the Overseer. 
Commander William T. Riker: And are you saying that this belief will eventually become a religion? 
Dr. Barron: It's inevitable. And without guidance, that religion could degenerate into inquisitions, holy wars, chaos. 
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Horrifying. Dr. Barron, your report describes how rational these people are. Millennia ago, they abandoned their belief in the supernatural. Now you are asking me to sabotage that achievement, to send them back into the dark ages of superstition and ignorance and fear? NO!

This is what I looked like when I first became a dad.  Yes, I looked about 12.

It seems that Google+ Photos via Drive recognise DNG files.  This opens up all kinds of backup ideas.  How much is a TB or Google storage again?
