So after recently merging my Google Drive photos and Google+ Photos together my AutoBackup hasn't been functioning quite right...

I usually have my photos set to upload at "Standard Size" (2048x2048) so as to not chip away at my Google Storage. However now that I have my Google Photos in Google Drive (and vice versa) my photos are being AutoBackup(ed) at their full size.

I will add to this though that once I disconnect, and then disable and re-enable AutoBackup uploads are finally back to their "Standard Size."

Thoughts are always appreciated, but I think this may be something on Google's servers/app that needs to be taken care of.

Do you have an android phone? 
if so
Something that seems to have worked for a few people is this.

Go to your device settings
go to Applications
Go to All
Find the Google+ App
uninstall all updates for the google+ app
clear app data (this doesn't delete any photos, it just resets your settings)

Go to the play store
go to my apps
update your apps from the play store

go to your device settings
scroll to account
tap into google
tap into your email address
ensure all boxes are checked, so that sync is on for that item
especially the Google+, Google+ Photos, and Google+ Uploads
(Google Photos can be left off as it syncs your Picasa images to your gallery app)

Ensure sync is on for the whole device
Go to your device Settings
Go to Data Usage(this has moved to Accounts in Android v5+)
Tap the menu button
Check Auto-sync data
(depending on your device you may have a quick switch in your notifications drop down panel)

it should work as per normal now.
go to google+ app 
log into app
ensure settings are to your requirements

go to the Photos app
go to the left side menu
go to On Device
if the Autobackup Cloud icon is highlighted blue tap it to switch it off for a particular folder that you don't want to be backed up. 

This is optional
go back to the Google+ app
From the settings go to the autobackup settings
select the option to backup all photos now 
do not dismiss the notification for it. 

Do all the steps described you don't have to do the optional one, but please ensure that you do the steps in that order

Hey +Phil Nickinson​, love the +Android Central​ podcast, and I heard you guys talk about the Nexus 6 & 9 not loading people's Google+ profile pictures as the devices profile picture.

Here is your solution...

If you open up the Google+ app, you're pretty much automatically signed in, but if you go into the setting, and contacts, you need to turn on Google+ Contact sync! Your profile pic will load then.

As a #woman  in #tech  or any other industry, the #wagegap  between you and your male peers is probably a very real thing. There is a surprisingly high gap in pay not just for women though, but also minorities (http://goo.gl/qGS6Ax).

If anything, +Sarah Silverman's solution is by far the best... She is trying to raise $29 trillion in lost wages for women to pay back women the money lost by being a woman (in jest). The money will actually go to support the +National Women's Law Center who promotes and pushes legislation to support equal pay.
Help crowdfund the wage gap that women face just for having vaginas. The money raised goes to the National Women’s Law Center.

I'm willing to bet many of you are at least some what aware of the situation of Hong Kong, the protests for democracy and what have you. Coming out of it though are some interesting uses of technology, like FireChat, that were actually predicted by +Eric Schmidt, mind you used in a very very different way.

I've spent too long neglecting a lot of different things, my personal blog/site is most definitely one of them. With all of the changes in structure I am making in my life (and to be honest, some of them are not exactly my choice) I want to take the time to revive this baby, and really make it shine!

If you haven't heard of +Google Ideas thats ok, they're not really the biggest group out of +Google. They may however be one the most interesting, but they also have been called out by Julian Assange for having an agenda!

Slight problem I see with this campaign, and maybe its just how jaded I see the world. But if they are unpaid spokes people for tobacco, doesn't that mean their opinion are not bought or sold by money? That they smoke of their own free will and because the enjoy it?

This isn't tobacco forcing their product into movies or television. These are adults making a decision to do something that they enjoy. What's wrong with that?

I understand that there is a desire, and a general health benefit, to helping kids realize that smoking isn't cool. But these are adults who are of legal age to smoke and are. Just as if I was skimming through a magazine and see a celebrity over 21 drinking alcohol, what's wrong with that?

I'm sorry, I appreciate what your program stands for, but this campaign rubbed me the wrong way.

Introduction
Please allow me to introduce myself. The name is Mehdi, and I am an extraordinary gentleman that will keep you thinking about how in the world you were able to lead a seemingly normal life without knowing me.

I've raced Olympic swimmers and former world record holders. I've traveled numerous times to amazing locales likes Italy, Germany, Turkey, San Francisco, and many other places. (San Francisco is still by far my favorite) I'm an amazing cook, primarily inspired by Caribbean styles of cooking. I enjoy a variety of books and usually am stuck reading through a few books at the same time.

I was pleasantly surprised to find this place in Westville. The food was pretty darn good, and the place had a swanky vibe. Would definitely come again!
