Re Google cardboard

I tried it out for the first time this morning. Have no clue how to use it. Somehow I saw a picture of the city of Chicago that tilts and swivels. Very impressive.

Reminds me of the first QuickTime 1.0 video I saw - a postage stamp size video of an Saturn rocket taking off from Cape Kennedy. Lasted ten seconds. My computer could BARELY play the video.

That was the start. That must have been 1998.

I did a search in my google photos for "bambino" and they showed me pictures of children (paintings and human)

the way Google search lets me mix languages together and come up with results always surprises me.  Especially in the maps app.

While rebuilding my Google Photos library, I came across a treasure trove of pictures that I exported from Ovi before they shut down. Here's an oldie but goodie. Notice how small the screen seems compared to today's behemoths.

+Luke Van Eede​, perhaps, due to the Java virtual machine, the Android OS runs at a further "distance" from the hardware, so, in effect, there are more layers between the apps and the phone. More layers take up more memory. Also, there's much more going on behind the scenes in terms of background activities in the newer operating systems, many threads dedicated to exchange of background data, syncs, etc. Whether this is always a good thing is another matter, but we've come to expect certain services that do come at a cost. No doubt Android could be more efficient, though, and that's something that Google and others say they're working on.

In one story your podcast is concerned about loss of privacy from google services.

Then in the next story you talk about flashing android phones with a rogue ROM.

I would trust my data with google services over rogue roms.

Just a data point. The note 2 was never going to be used as a primary phone. The iPhone is for that. It was purely something to pass a little time and enjoy the possibilities :-)

Mac vs. PC

I have about 7500 photos from my europe trip that I am sorting thru.

I first imported them into apple photos. My iPad CHOKED because it only has 16 gb ram.

Last night i noticed a huge difference between mac and pc.

In the finder on Mac, I can not sort a folder of pictures by "date taken".
I was stunned.

Why do I need that? I combined MY pictures with my friends pictures. His smartphone names pictures differently from mine.

How to sort them chronologically? Only by date taken.

Windows exposes date taken in windows explorer, along with A TON of other fields.

I love to use folders to organize my pictures. Then sometimes I just use paint to edit.
(Thanks Stephen quinn)

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.

"Radio apple"

I am dead set against this idea.
This is a typical American attitude that everybody around the world wants to listen to one "brand" of music branding.

Long live radio berlin, the BBC, KCRW here in Santa Monica and all radio stations with some local flavor.

I will never listen to radio apple. ever

Re Google photos

When the city name is part of the name of the photo, Google photos is able to group the photo into a location.

Really liking google photos

i wiped all my photos from PIcasaweb and Google this week. Last night I started re-uploading my entire collection. It goes pretty fast when I allow Google to compress the photos.

Java teacher told us this funny story about running scripts like the photo extractor script. A few mistakes and his script deleted every file on his computer :-)

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.
