(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:
On the other hand, it's not guaranteed to be large enough to store all the energy from a days good sunlight with a 4Kw rooftop solar panel,,, and it's not large enough to last a full day in most of our houses without some careful reviewing of our usage... I would want 2 batteries, which is not utterly unreasonable given the price.
It would make rooftop solar a much more viable proposition tho, since currently the peak generation is during the day when most of our usage is lowest, and so with a solar system you have to sell that electricity to the grid for 3p a unit and then buy it back later for 14p a unit. (UK prices)
If there were no subsidy, and assuming you could use all your solar energy, not just about 25% of it then you would be saving 11p per unit on about 3000 units per year, by having these batteries... so it would pay for itself on the order of 10 years... the lifetime of the pack is probably a little over 10 years... ultimately this means that financially it does not save you a huge amount of money over its lifetime, but what it does is give you a degree of self reliance, certainly 10-20Kwh per day is a massive amount of energy in a disaster situation where the grid might be down... or just as a UPS for the 5 minute outage that might loose your work on a computer...it's providing you a benefit...
What it is doing tho, is correcting the fact that 75% of your solar energy goes to the grid, at 25% of what it costs you to buy it back... 75% of 75% is 56%, which means that not including subsidy) your solar installation makes more money for the electricity company than it does for you... which is why you need a subsidy to justify it in many countries.
I am very happy to have that extra money go to green energy companies like solar installation companies and companies like Tesla, rather than have it go to large energy companies to pay for coal / gas fired power stations.
Anyway, I posted a 4k video on Youtube, but have no idea how to place a link to the 4k video. If anyone knows how to do this, please let me know. Otherwise you the viewer have to select the 4k quality option.
My thoughts are with his wife and children. They lost an amazing man.
