Apple photos, Google photos, flickr

Lots of discussion recently about merits of each.

I found one thing thing in apple photos that I really like.

I don't have ipad here with me , so I don't remember how I did this.

I clicked on a clump of pictures and a beautiful map of czech republic showed up. My pictures taken in prague are on the map. Those I took in nearby town kutna hora are in another place on the map.

I don't see that in google photos.

Found a new use for the galaxy note pen.

I was on a trans atlantic flight and was trying to tell an Egyptian fellow the name of a los angeles restaurant.

pulled out the stylus on the galaxy note and wrote the info on the screen.

every so often i annotate a photo. For example - I take a picture of a really sumptuous dinner. I can easily mark up the photo and identify what each dish is.

Mobile hardware has moved on so far since Steve Jobs sneered at styli at the introduction of the iPhone. Yet still the tech world is under some kind of spell that he set and for some reason doesn't want to adopt digital pens as an option.

Re tech talk u.k. remark that android mfgrs are producing phones at too fast a clip.

Again, very similiar to motorcycle and car industry. Start up costs for new devices / cars / motorcyxles are a lot. I am quite sure the mfgrs have a plan to what they're doing.

Phone mfgrs are scrambling for lock in and brand loyalty. The more lines they cast in the water, the more bites they get. To use a fishing analogy.

I transfered a bunch of photos between a windows phone and an iPad tonight using software from ShareIt on both devices.

Highlight of my day!

"qi charging is the end all be all"

I tend to look at mobile from a travel standpoint.

I take a lot of pictures when I am on vacation. Many times I run a battery down to nothing by noon with the amount of pictures I take. In that respect, qi charging is useless to me.

I will stick with removable batteries and external charging station for an extra battery for as long as they are available.

I've got some devices that support qi charging and some qi charging plates. But I don't use them. My qi chargers don't work with the case on and it's easier to just plug in a cable or stick the phone/tablet in a charging dock.

It does help having a combined speaker/radio that can charge 3 devices at a time (apple lightening and 30pin and any a socket for USB cables for charging).

With a family of devices of different specs, adapters and ages it wouldn't be possible for us to just use qi charging. And if I charge on the go a USB charger is fine.

And at work with clean desk policies a qi charger is more hassle than a USB cable into a pc.

Re "relics that fell off the truck"

for USA readers only
I noticed tmobile is selling refurbished samsung galaxy note 2 phones for $288 (no contract)

Major catcheroo. Samsung only updated the Sprint version of the galaxy note 2. So you would be on a version of android Jelly Bean.

I actually saw one of those blackberry devices in the wild here in frankfurt. The one with squarish screen and larger qwerty keyboard.

Ah a passport! Saw one in a Car Phone Warehouse (large chain here in the UK) it looked weird, but strangely alluring. I of course had a play with it. Quite nice.

Milan cathedral

While I was touring the Milan Cathedral the other day, the subject of maintenance of the cathedral was mentioned. From the day construction ended (17th century? ) maintenance began and has continued.

Samsung contributes to the maintenance fund. Huge billboard on the side.

@RobTiffany: Microsoft, not carriers, will now be in charge of Windows 10 Mobile updates http://mashable.com/2015/05/18/windows-10-mobile-software-update/#:eyJzIjoidCIsImkiOiJfbm42OGhlYmttYW5rZ3VheSJ9 via @mashable

Microsoft will push updates for Windows 10 Mobiles, rather than waiting for wireless carriers to do so.

Lenovo’s new monster phone features ♡♡4GB♡♡ of RAM and a 4,000mAh battery https://www.yahoo.com/tech/s/lenovo-monster-phone-features-4gb-ram-4-000mah-013014103.html?soc_src=unv-sh&soc_trk=tw via @YahooTech
Earlier this week, we posted a video showing you why having 4GB of RAM on your phone is awesome — basically, it lets you seamlessly multitask even when you’re running several graphics-intensive applications at once. Now Lenovo has come out with a new phone called the K80 that combines this capability with a massive 4,000mAh battery to boot.

+Andre Wolff​ I'm loving my M8, the audio quality, performance, visual and tactile feel...The battery life is decent but I've had my expectations built up by the likes of the 1520, z3c, Blackberry Passport etc.

Just looking at your comment about the Withings active pop watch and the battery that's replaced after 8th months, no charging inbetween. That sort of performance in a smartphone would be brilliant.

Let's hope this works out

Ultrafast aluminum battery offers safe alternative to conventional batteries

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/04/150406121031.htm
Scientists have invented the first high-performance aluminum battery that's fast-charging, long-lasting and inexpensive. Researchers say the new technology could replace many lithium-ion and alkaline batteries in wide use today.

I like to get a sandwich here at the deli on my way to the beach. This is a small neighborhood supermarket in Brentwood. Everybody is very friendly here and there is always parking.
