Auto awesome provides an interesting but creepy animation from a visit to an Armenian cave in 2007.

Over the Memorial Day weekend, eight California cavers visited the karst in the Marble Mountain Wilderness in northern California. This area has the deepest and second-longest cave system in the state (Bigfoot), along with dozens of other caves. The caves are at altitudes ranging from roughly 5500 to 6600 feet, with ambient temperatures typically 35-37°F; many are also fairly wet, so proper attire is a must for safe caving. Four of t...

Today, we take more photos every 2 minutes than everyone, everywhere took in the 1800s. Help our users share and save what matters. Our Google Photos team is hiring: https://goo.gl/A7cIxe #io15

Alas, poor RX100. After 2.5 years of faithfully taking photos in wet, gritty, dusty, crappy conditions, it finally died of a disease known as Too Much Cave. (And sadly, with two days of caving left.) It mostly won't even stay powered on anymore, and when it does, the focus mechanism reduces all photos to Impressionistic efforts. You served well, faithful camera, but you're probably not worth repairing at this point.

7 Things To Love About the New Google Photos App

I’m super excited about today’s Google Photos launch! The team has been working hard to deliver a wonderful experience across Android, iOS, and web. I wanted to highlight a few of my favorite features for those of you who might not have had a chance to play with the app yet. So without further ado; 7 things to love about the new Google Photos app.

Never lose a photo again. Auto Backup is one of my very favorite features. Google Photos can upload every photo you take and store it securely in the cloud so that you can view it across devices, and keep your memories safe in the event that you lose or break your phone. You can even install our desktop uploader (https://photos.google.com/apps) and get quick access to your entire photo library in the palm of your hand.

Store all your photos and videos online. Forever. For free. We’ll store all your photos and videos in high quality (16mp and 1080p respectively). at 16 megapixels, that’s big enough to print at 24x16! Oh yeah, and it’s completely free :)

Search your photo library like a magician. Looking for that photo of your dog playing in the snow from 5 years ago? No problem! Google Photos’ new search feature will help you find it instantly. Search your photo library just as easily as you search the web. Seriously… it’s amazing.

Never run out of space on your phone again. I don’t know about you, but I get really tired of having to delete photos and videos from my phone every time I run low on space. The new Photos app can detect when you’re running low on storage, and will offer to help clean up old photos from your device that have been safely backed up to the cloud.

Share photos anywhere. Want to share on Facebook? Instagram? Twitter? No problem! You no longer need a Google+ account to get all the Google Photos goodness.

Easily make gorgeous movies with your photos and videos. Google Photos comes with a beautiful movie creation and editing platform. Just pick the photos and videos you want to include, choose music and visual effects, and you’re done! Google Photos will make a beautiful, professional-looking movie in seconds that would take minutes or hours in traditional movie making apps.

Your very own personal assistant. Everyone who installs the new Photos app will also get a personal assistant. Your assistant works around the clock to make cool things from your photo library like stories, movies, animations, collages, and more. These creations show up automatically in your Assistant view and you can choose whether you want to keep them or not. All you have to do is use your phone and let your assistant do the hard work!

So those are some of my favorite things about the new Google Photos app. There’s still a ton of other cool stuff to discover. What are your favorite features?
Google Photos is the home for all your photos and videos, searchable and or...

This is a massive upgrade that the team has been working for a while, and it's pretty awesome:

-- free, unlimited storage (up to 16MP per photo)
-- totally amazing search capabilities... no more endless scrolling to find the picture you're looking for
-- sharing with any online service is now easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy
-- no longer requires a G+ account
-- oh, and it's available today for Android, iOS and the Web

Many are uneasy about a court ruling that said Oracle can sue Google over copyrighted API's. Now, the White House has just sided with Oracle.

This little guy was at the bottom of a 50ft pit in Trail Junction Cave, about an hour's travel in. Surprised to see a non-cave-adapted cricket this far back in. Maybe there's a cricket-sized entrance nearby?
