Google Photos is pretty awesome. I've moved my gigantic photo library over to it.
I take Google's latest cloud photo storage service for a spin.

+Robert Wallis, you make a good point about work being seen, but it's still work.  Professionals should be compensated for their time, effort and investment in education and technology.  That's how it works.  Doctors don't work for trade.  You can't mow their lawn to pay down your surgery bill...  

if that were truly the case, Jurassic World would be streaming for free on YouTube rather than raking in $208.5 million opening weekend.  

Books would be free to read, and Barnes & Noble would merely be a place to get coffee (are there any book stores still open?!?!).

Steven Spielberg would volunteer his time, education, innovation, and artistic prowess, and Star Wars would be public domain.

Picasso's works would be sold at auction for a couple of dollars rather than millions.

We place VALUE in art.  No matter what form it is.  I get it:  Google photo is for the everyday schmo who takes selfies, and crooked shots of the NYC subway with their phone.  Everyone wants to share those photos

I was merely cautioning those budding professionals who might think it's a good idea to hand Google the 'keys to their kingdom'.

Gotta admit, this is one of the best ads I've seen in a while. Really well done.

Wow. That is a very good commercial. A little 1984 and Brazil, and clever.

Love this video. Not because it represents the vast majority of underage YouTubers emulating their favorite tech how-to channels, but because it is a great textbook representation of what can happen when one or more things are "off" during video production.
A good video production has high marks in multiple areas. Good Camera work, lighting, audio, editing, and story telling are key. When you're missing one or more of these things, it's noticeable.
Was this video good? Not really, but there is something there that can't be taught, and where it fell short was certainly capable of improvement.
Rather than discourage this youngster (like so many commenters want to) I'd encourage them to try scripting themselves, then reading from the script slowly, and as many times as it takes to get it right. Over time, the vocal presentation will improve.
Lighting is also an easy fix, as is the camera positioning. Beyond that, this wasn't a terrible video.

Every year this topic gets covered by Delighted Robot at HP Discover, and each year the technology continues to improve. I, for one, welcome our new digital print overlords.

So, if this keyboard goes nuts and spits out random keystrokes... would it be insane in the membrane?

There's something about 60 FPS that makes everything look a little on the strange side. I suppose subconsciously we're so used to 23.976 and 30 FPS that it takes getting used to. Great review, though!

"Apple is dying." That party line still makes me laugh. Apple is doing just fine. The sooner we realize that it doesn't matter what phone you buy, or what OS is on your computer, the better.
The iPhone continues to carry Apple. As part of the company's latest quarterly earnings announcement, Apple revealed today that it sold 74.5 million iPhones and 21.4 million iPads during its fiscal...

Introduction
My name is Ryan Matthew Pierson, and I've spent the past fifteen years working in the field of broadcasting, customer interaction, and journalism. I'm passionate about audio, video, and still photography.

Currently, I spent most of my work day writing technical documentation and doing multimedia production for clients. On my free time, I enjoy PC gaming, Dungeons and Dragons, and shooting photos.

I'm also a frequent contributor at a number of technology-based sites including: Delighted Robot, LockerGnome, LogicLounge, RocketTheme, and Windows Secrets.

You may have seen my work on the Alex Jones Show, including having served as a producer/director of the infamous Charlie Sheen Unleashed interview that coined phrases like, "Tiger Blood," "Vatican Assassin," and "Winning." 

Google+ is an amazing community, and I look forward to connecting with you. Please feel free to reach out if there is anything I can help with.
