Why you want Google Photos!

(Read my full review: http://goo.gl/9BsDjT )

We all love to take pictures. Smartphones make it easy.

Because it's so easy to take pictures, we take a lot of them. (I personally have more than 80,000 photos and videos which take up more than 215 gigabytes of space.)

That's when the fun ends and the hassle begins. The truth is that managing, sharing and editing photos is harder than it should be. Most of us lost control of our photo collections long ago.

Labeling, tagging and organizing photos is difficult and time-consuming. But if you don't do all of those things, can be hard to find a specific photo.

Pictures are inconvenient to share, too -- especially when people are scattered across different social networks. (And there's always that odd relative who isn't on any of the social networks.)

Editing pictures can be difficult and time-consuming. It's also tediously labor-intensive to do creative things with pictures.

And at some point, all those photos can max out the storage on our phones. Yet we hesitate to delete them because we're afraid of accidentally getting rid of pictures we want to keep.

The only product or service that solves each and every one of those problems is Google Photos, which Google announced Thursday at its Google I/O developers conference.

Here's why I think you'll switch to Google Photos:

Simply fascinating use of radar
My first thought is for people with parkinson's disease and could this technology still be a useful tool.
I wonder if the research could discount certain movements for people with degenerative muscle or nerve damage and help them interact with computers down the road.

I have had consistently good service at this location. Today I brought my glasses in that I sat on and broke - thanks Jeff for fixing them so fast. Sometimes they can get very busy but they always tell you what to expect. There is plenty of parking. Plenty of other stores nearby to shop and eat.

I would definitely give them a second try. Very nice accommodations in a pretty new shopping center. Their style is a mix of Persian and Afghan cuisine. The staff was very attentive and the seating very comfortable with the big pillows. I might have to come back on a Friday night for the belly dancing.

Very impressed so far with the care and assessment provided by Dr Zimmer and his staff. Easy to find but parking can be a bit tight and challenging depending on the time of day.

Dr Nekoba has been my primary care physician since 1994. He is very professional and is quite thorough. There is always plenty of parking and a convenient grocery and pharmacy store in the same plaza.

Small bar with very good burgers. The staff is nice but everything is a bit cramped to include the bathroom. I've only been there on week nights so I'm not sure how busy they can get.

Great service and very consistent food. Traffic can be a pain depending on the time of day and parking is adequate. They have about 12 tables inside and a few outside.
