Walk down memory lane

Photos help us reminisce about the things we've done, bringing back events from one, two, or even ten years ago. Today, Google Photos is introducing a new opt-in feature where you can choose to privately rediscover your memories from the past. If you snapped photos on a hiking trip this time last year, chances are that Google Photos will let you know. And with a lifetime’s worth of photos and videos in one place, you’ll have lots of memories to look back on.

By opting in, you’ll get cards in the Assistant view reminding you of photos from events in your past, including a collage featuring people and places from that day. Share with whoever you want, however you want, whether that’s via email, a social network, or by showing the person next to you. Or savor the moment for yourself; it’s completely private until you decide to share.

The new feature is rolling out today in the Google Photos app on Android, iOS, and at http://photos.google.com

Why Google Eddystone is an Apple iBeacon killer (or should be).

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/HjdzjD )

Google rolled out yesterday a new Bluetooth Low Energy beacon technology that competes directly with Apple's industry-leading iBeacon offering.

It's called Eddystone. And it's a big deal. Here's why:

Check out the new Google Photos app — which comes with unlimited storage for photos up to 16MP and videos up to 1080p HD resolution. Just choose ‘high quality’ when you upload them through the new Photos app or Photos desktop uploader if you’d like them stored for free.

Just like before, the images and videos you keep in Google Photos will appear in Google Drive automatically and any you upload or sync using Drive will always be the uncompressed, originals and will use your available storage.

Really excited about our big news, announcement of Alphabet!
As Sergey and I wrote in the original founders letter 11 years ago, “Google is not a conventional company. We do not intend to become one.” As part of that, we also said that you could expect us to make “smaller bets in areas that might seem very speculative or even strange when compared to our ...

At its 2015 I/O keynote, Google focused mostly on optimizing Android — but that's actually a pretty big project. A lot of the updates involved reducing friction: there were updates to Android...

Story
Introduction
I'm a stay-at-home dad, disabled with rheumatoid arthritis. I enjoy photographing my family as we discover and explore historic and nature sites around the country.
Bragging rights
My ankles have been replaced with titanium & cobalt chrome alloys and polyethylene. As a teenager I received injections of gold (ionic compounds). I occasionally burn ketones for fuel. My Cyborg conversion has begun!

A neat historical experience. Kids loved exploring the nation's third navy ship. Can't beat the price... Free.

This place is a lot of fun. I liked the wide open spaces with wall-to-wall trampolines. You can jump easily from one bounce area to another. On a Saturday afternoon it was packed with people but there was still room to jump. The kids loved jumping into the inflated air pads area and running up and down the angled trampolines. For parents who are just watching there are benches situated throughout. Our 9 year old is looking forward to his 10th birthday party there. A bit more expensive than a typical "pizza party" but worthwhile for the occasional special day.
