You won’t be disappointed with Google Photos

I’ve been using Google Photos for only a few days and I’m already hooked on it. This is much, much more than a photo uploading service. Once uploaded, you can browse your collection according to people (via facial recognition), places, and even events.  I love the added feature whereby it attempts to create animations when you take a few photos in one spot.

It’s a must. Get it, use it, love it!  Mossberg’s review below goes into great detail.

The new Google Photos brings the company’s expertise in artificial intelligence, data mining and machine learning to bear on the task of storing, organizing and finding your photos. And that, combined with its cross-platform approach, makes it the best of breed.

Did you get your Windows 10 Free Upgrade notification today?

This morning I saw an interesting desktop notification for the first time:

After opening it, was somewhat surprised to see that Microsoft determined I was ready for the free Windows 10 upgrade.

Very smart marketing. Got to admit that I’m intrigued. So I started the upgrade process. I’m a little nervous as I really can’t afford to “break” anything but right now, I’m proceeding with the download.

Using your  Apple Watch while driving could get you a ticket.

Better check local laws that dictate how you can use electronic devices while driving.

Macesin was hit with a $120 fine for violating the Quebec Highway Safety Code, which states “no person may, while driving a road vehicle, use a hand-held device that includes a telephone function.”
