Drag test? Cool. Seeing how amazing the P85D is? Cool. Doing it on a public road? Not cool. Idiotic and dangerous. Go find a track, or at least someplace isolated and at night.

There's a lot to like about the new Google Photos experience; sadly, the uploader is apparently unable to tell the difference between the photos on my local machine and the bit for bit identical versions that were already uploaded via Picasa...so it duplicated 37,000+ of my photos. #sigh  

The question is, how do I delete them all and start over again from scratch? I can't find a global "nuke" option, and the checkbox + shift function seems to only work within the confines of an album.

Is there a "nuke from orbit" option hidden somewhere? :-)

Chris: I'm using the "full quality" uploads in Google, so it shouldn't have duplicated all the images and videos. From the first sync I had it set to use up my storage. I ended up using the iOS app on my iPad to delete them because I could select entire months and delete 1000-3000 at a time. So it "only" took me about 30 minutes of constant deletions to get to them all.

Pieter: Sadly, I'm convinced Picasa is dead. Google has little interest in desktop clients. They want it all in the cloud and in the browser. Which is sad, because Picasa is wonderful. I wish they'd never sold to Google. :-(

I always find it weird when April Fool's Day content is published on March 31st. Because, ya'know, April 1st is the actual day. But this still made me chuckle a bit. ;-)

Great video! I'm really excited about the D750. One thing I was expecting you to point out was that this camera in a lot of ways is what D300/D300S owners have been waiting for. The D7000 series lacked features the D3xx series had, and it lacked a strong buffer. The D600 series lacked several key controls (dpad click to zoom) and functions (wide bracketing) and was designed to be more of a beginner's full frame. I briefly owned both a D7100 and a D600, and returned both of them because I felt like I was losing out on key things about my D300 that I loved.

But the D750 nails it from what I've seen so far. It has everything the D300 has, and much more. I've been waiting years for Nikon to release a D400 or something similar, but my wait is over. I'll be ordering a D750 very soon!

Some great picks! Some...less good ones (IMO), but that's the great thing about music, it hits us all differently and it's very subjective. This video reminded me of how utterly fantastic Amy Whitcomb from Delilah's voice is. Truly stunning. Thanks for posting this!

After Google Photos duplicated all 37,000+ of my photos, I went through the manual and painful process of deleting them all. I did it on my iPad, as the iOS client allowed me to select them a month at a time. When I was finished, and I emptied the trash, for a few days I saw various images pop back into my collection. Eventually that subsided.

The problem now is shown below: I have an endless sea of gray bars that will not go away. When I upload a few test images, they appear in the right spot - on top of the grey bars - but deleting them, emptying the trash, etc. has no impact on the grey bars going away.

Any idea how I can get rid of these? My account needs a bit of a reboot I think. :-/

UPDATE: This has been like this for 4+ days, so whatever process Google runs would have happened by now.

Thanks Zachary, I'm glad they're aware of the issue. I used the feedback tool, but I assumed it went into some black hole - I'm glad Google is aware of this issue. What's odd is that it sort of comes and goes - when I first logged in today, I saw all the grey boxes, After clicking around in the Photos site a bit, I went back to Photos, and I see the "No Photos" image and no grey boxes. Then I upload a few photos...and when I look at All Photos I see the new photos and the endless sea of grey boxes. :-/

Great video! One correction though: many audio companies have worked with musicians in the past, but they were selling expensive headphones/in-ear monitors meant for other musicians or audiophiles. Some brands, such as UltimateEars before they were bought by Logitech, dipped their toe into the waters of marketing their products as musician-endorsed as a way to sell to consumers who cared about audio. Beats took it to a whole new level though by working with sports stars and pop-culture icons, having bold and colourful hardware designs, leveraging mainstream TV shows (American Idol was a watershed moment for Beats), and generally making headphones into a mainstream thing that people cared about.

We've bought two products from Furniture Factory Direct, and while the overall sales process was OK, the extended warranty is a complete waste of money, and it's dishonest of the company to continue to sell it to customers. They make their money off it and clearly don't care about customers getting screwed by the warranty company. We had three issues with a couch we bought, the first two were minor and we thought we'd get them fixed if something more significant happened, warranting a service call. Well, the more serious thing did happen, and it turns out the first two issues were NOT covered by the extended warranty because we didn't report it within 90 days. It would have been nice to have been told that! Worse, the more serious issue - the sliding armrest came off the rails - isn't covered by the warranty. We waited months to get that answer, and the store was zero help. Even worse, when we simply said we'd PAY for the repair, we're getting a run-around by the store and the repair company. No one will help us get the right parts to do the repair. Furniture Factory Direct does not stand behind the products they sell and I cannot recommend anyone buy from them. UPDATE: The local store helped us order in the parts we needed, which I appreciated, so I added two stars to my review. I'm still unlikely to buy from them in the future again though.

We hired the Pure Clean team to clean our carpets and they did a great job. The tech showed up on time, was courteous, and our carpets look great. The only slight glitch was that we had to remind them about a discount we were offered - if we hadn't we would have been charged more - but this is a minor issue. We'll hire them again next time!

The Colortronics tag line on their invoices says "The Competent Ones". They're not fooling me! The short version: I've been without a working dishwasher for SIX WEEKS now, and Colortronics tried and failed to repair the issue. Worse, we now have water leaking into our wood floor, permanently damaging it. I will avoid them at all costs in the future. And this isn't the first time I've had poor service from Colortronics - they "fixed" our oven and the convection still doesn't work on it. The long version: We bought an extended warranty from Lowes on our Bosche SilencePlus dishwasher in 2011 when we purchased it. 2.5 years later, it would no longer work, so I called Lowes to use this extended warranty. Colortronics is the vendor Lowes uses for appliance repair in my area. 1) It took a full week before we could get any kind of appointment for the tech to come out. We explained to Lowes what the issue was, so I assumed the Colortronics tech would come out with the parts to fix it. 2) The Colortronics tech showed up, identified the problem we'd already identified, and said a new mainboard was needed. He didn't come with any parts to repair it, so the parts would need to be ordered. 3) After three weeks, I called Colortronics after hours and left a voicemail asking for an update on the status of the part. They didn't call me back. 4) Thirty-six (36) days passed while we waited for...something. You see, Colortronics didn't contact us at all to tell us the part was back-ordered, or explain to us why we were still waiting. 5) I called Lowes, and starting making noise on Twitter and Facebook about the poor service I was receiving. The part must have come in - or maybe someone at Colortronics decided to finally do their job - because low and behold an appointment was scheduled to do the repair. 6) On day 40, the Colortronics tech came out with the mainboard did the repair. I wasn't here when it happened, my wife was, but apparently after the swap he started an empty load and it worked. Victory, we had a working dishwasher! No. Keep reading. 7) That same night we loaded up the dishwasher, excited to finally have a working appliance, turned it on, and the same problem occurred. We still let the load run, hoping it would "work itself out", but the next morning the dishes were still dirty, the soap hadn't been released, etc. 8) So after SIX WEEKS of not having a working dishwasher, I called Lowes and will ask for anyone BUT Colortronics to do the repair. They clearly are unable to repair my dishwasher. Not all of the above might be Colortronics' fault - it could be that the part was back-ordered and there was nothing they could do. But you know what? YOU TELL THE CUSTOMER THAT. Don't just go silent and let the customer suffer without an explanation. Great customer service is about more than solving the customer's problem,it's about TREATING THAT CUSTOMER LIKE A HUMAN BEING, which means keeping them informed about the progress (or lack thereof). UPDATE: A few days after the Colortronics "repair" I was stepping on my hardwood floor and noticed some water squish up through the seams. Yes, that's right, not only did Colortronics not fix the problem, they failed to identify the fact that it was leaking water and now I have permanent damage on my floor.
