Another social media site. This one is looking good though. I've signed up so if you're on there, search for me.

Is this the 'Facebook alternative' that the world has been waiting for?

So the image review on my J2 really bugs me. I just found out though that if you half press the shutter, the review goes away. Still a bit annoying but way better than sitting there waiting 2 seconds for the image review to vanish.
This might be common knowledge among 1 users but I only just found out after having the camera for a year.

So +Google Photos​ isn't very good.

As well as no longer being able to add location info to photos, when you download photos, the location info is lost and not in the meta data.

So with this new #photos  update on Google+, I can't seem to geotag photos anymore.
Is there something obvious I'm missing? Before, you used to be able to click the i icon on the side to bring up the photo details and you could add location info from there. That seems to be gone now though which is a shame. I don't want to have to download all the photos my phone has backed up on G+ just to be able to geotag them just so I can upload them again.

Moving water with the camera on my phone.

I like this mode but it's rare I find anything to use it on. #galaxys4

So the royal family are getting a 6.7% pay rise while the rest of the country's wages have pretty much stayed the same for the past 5 years. Can we get rid of that lot yet? It's mad that we give this "special" family money every year out of our own pockets.

"Palace officials have confirmed that the Royal Family’s funding will rise this year by 6.7%, marking the fourth year running that the public funding to the Monarch will have risen. Royal officials have said that the rise is justified by the backlog of overdue property maintenance works required, including a proposed £150 million renovation to Buckingham Palace."

So, are you for or against having a royal family in this country?

Having done a bit of work at Buckingham Palace - it is a little tatty.
I was definitely below stairs though.

After trying the +Google Photos app again on my phone, I have to say it is just plain dreadful.

1.Your options are to auto backup or not have your photos on Google at all. There seems to be no option to upload your photos manually.
2.If you do backup successfully but you decide you don't want that specific photo on your #GooglePhotos you can't delete it from just the photos app, it gets deleted from the phone too.
3.There is no way to edit the time, date or location info of a photo.

A bit rubbish really. I'm going back to using Google Plus on my phone where the photos at least get backed up properly and don't affect the photos on my device.

Can someone tell me how you can upload photos from your phone to the new +Google Photos app?
It looks like your only option is auto backup or sharing a post to yourself. What if I want to add a new photo to an album?

Really knows his stuff and an absolute pleasure to talk to. I'm always blown away by the quality of his set ups.

I don't know what the other person is talking about with bootleg CD's...maybe they can give us an example? The Rockbox has been the go-to place for music lovers for years. The staff know their stuff and are passionate about the music, the selection of CD's and vinyl there is huge and if they don't have what you want, they're happy to order it in for you. The Rockbox has managed to outlast all other music stores in town which is brilliant for an independent record store. Visit the Rockbox if you want to experience a proper record store.

Had a lovely meal for a friend's birthday. The portions were very good and half of us didn't manage to finish our main meals because we'd had starters first! Only one steak was cooked wrong but they were happy to cook a new one for us. I would definitely go back there again.

Great food and great service. Nicest Chinese I've had in the local area. Only took 15 minuted to cook and the man even brought it out to my car for me. £24 for set meal B for 2. Plenty left over for a 2nd meal for each of us so good value for money!

Lovely and quiet in the afternoon with very friendly staff. Lunch in the front room was so relaxing as the sun streamed through the window. The food came out promptly and didn't disappoint. The burger was so large I couldn't finish it so they happily got me some tin foil to take the rest away.

I went away here for my 2 year anniversary with my girlfriend and had a lovely time. Paid for a small room but even that was large and with uneven flooring and nice decor, it was full of character. All the staff I met were very friendly and able to answer any questions I had. Breakfast was included in the price and could not be faulted. Cooked to order, high quality food made with care, home made jam, a choice between salted and unsalted butter, the list goes on. Would definitely visit here again if I'm in Bath.

Been going here for years. Good deals on food although it has got a bit more expensive in the past few months. Drinks are still very well priced with a huge selection. Avoid Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights if you're over 20. Full of 18 year olds. Needs a lick of paint. No garden. Apart from that, nice atmosphere with no music to try and talk over the top of.
