This would be a great tool, but it only provides read-only access to files in Team Drives?!!

We've been waiting for this tool to simplify our sharing of files and folders across our team, but it's totally useless if it'll be read-only. #GoogleDrive #Google #GAFE +Google Drive +Google

Delighted to hear that The Big Walk fundraising has now topped £100k for the Sheffield Scanner!

Anyone able to help me take my contribution to £800? I'm just £41 off, thanks to the amazing generosity of friends and family who have sponsored me so far.

And here it is... my Big Walk Video diary, so you can get a sense of what it was like to walk 52.1 miles in 22 hours to raise money for Sheffield Scanner.
It was honestly the most difficult thing I’ve ever done, not only physically but also mentally, particularly in the last ten miles when I had to keep convincing myself to just keep going. It turns out 52.1 miles is a very long way!

Thank you so much to everyone who has sponsored me. I can't believe I'm currently at 245% of my original £300 target, thanks to your generosity. Every penny of this money will go towards the Sheffield Scanner, and will help to bring the future of medical imaging to Sheffield, directly benefiting patients in the teaching hospitals, but also enabling us to continue world-leading research to find new ways of diagnosing and treating diseases that could affect any one of us or our families. You're helping to make that happen, and we really appreciate your support.

And if you haven't yet sponsored me, and would like to support this fantastic cause, it's not too late. How ever much you can donate, it will make a difference. Thank you.

To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"'

Please will you sponsor me, and help Sheffield take the next leap forward in medical and research imaging?

On 30 June, I will be taking part in The Big Walk 2017, attempting to walk 50 miles in 24 hours!

It's all to raise £2 million for Sheffield Scanner campaign to bring a ground-breaking MRI-PET facility to The University of Sheffield.

The scanner will be used by health and medical researchers, and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, and will lead to easier, faster, and safer diagnosis, and treatment of diseases such as cancer; motor neurone, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease; heart disease; diabetes; and stroke.

I've had an email from #Evernote to say it's starting to charge for sync on more than two devices in a month's time.

I need sync on iPad, Android phone, Mac and two PCs, so I need to act.

I'm considering switching to Microsoft #OneNote, which has a migration tool to import notes from Evernote, and has apps for all the platforms I need.

Has anyone else made this transition? Any advice?

"The Chrome App Launcher is going away." Bad decision, +Google and +Google Chrome. The App launcher is the quickest way to launch individual +GoogleApps on Windows and Mac OS. #SaveTheAppLauncher
