goog finally change how google drive and google photos interact

following a long campaign by myself (#flickralt) and others goog are finally changing how google drive and google photos interact

From 10 July 2019, new photos and videos from Drive won’t automatically show in Photos. Similarly, new photos and videos in Photos will not be added to the Photos folder in Drive. Photos and videos you delete in Drive will not be removed from Photos. Similarly, items you delete in Photos will not be removed from Drive. This change is designed to help prevent accidental deletion of items across products.

From 10 July 2019, Google Photos and Google Drive will no longer automatically sync. We’re making this change to simplify how things work between the two services. You can read more about the changes in our blog post

  • When you upload or delete photos in Google Drive or Google Photos, changes won’t be reflected in the other product.
  • On photos.google.com, you can use a new feature called ‘Upload from Drive’, which lets you manually choose photos and videos from Drive to copy into Photos
  • Once items have been copied into Photos, items are not connected between the two products.
  • If you copy Original quality items from Drive into Photos, they will count towards your storage in both products. Learn more.
  • These changes are for all devices and platforms, like iOS and Android. 
  • Your existing photos and videos are still in Google Photos and Google Drive. Google Photos backup will continue to work as before.

goog auto @youtube channel creator #chatbots and #robots

whats the deal with youtube videos that have comments beginning with

Provided to YouTube by ....

and ending with

Auto-generated by YouTube.

is there some sort of goog youtube chatbot or robot that record companies can email CDs to and the youtube robot turns them into a youtube channel and playlists with hidden videos ?

specifically

i dont think official answer explains exactly what is going on

my suspicion is that these could be PAYED FOR PRODUCT PLACEMENTS deeply embedded in youtube system

latest more info on the pesky @googleuk #backupandsync 100% cpu #bug only occurs with SSD drives

latest more info on the pesky @googleuk #backupandsync 100% cpu #bug only occurs with SSD drives

two similar PCs one HP8440 i5 Win 10 Pro and the other a HP8560 i7 Win 10 Home so was it cpu or os causing the problem ! no i think it was the SSD drive as once videos had been copied onto HP8560 google b&s didnt use 100% cpu

steps to reproduce

  • get 24G of videos (a dump from your dashcam is pefect)
  • put on a PC with a SSD
  • run goog B&S
  • cpu goes to 100%

workaround

  • get 24G of videos (a dump from your dashcam is pefect)
  • put on a PC with a normal HD
  • run goog B&S
  • cpu does not go to 100%

when is too much data too much data ? @googleuk google location history google timeline #locationhistory #timeline #bigbrother #bigbrotherishere #bigdata

i know where you were last summer ! well at least google DOES !

because i have NOT disabled google location history google timeline KNOWS that

  • 10 cities visited last month (5 new)
  • 15 places visited last month (11 new)
  • 3 mi (6 km) walked last month
  • 30 hours spent in a vehicle last month
Screenshot_2019-02-04 Timeline

map showing every town i visited last month

even @googleuk have bugs in their apps especially their #backupandsync or #googledrivesync app using 100% cpu and 100% bandwidth #fail

even @googleuk have bugs in their apps especially their #backupandsync or #googledrivesync app using 100% cpu and 100% bandwidth #fail

but there is a workaround to the 100% upstream bandwidth bug just goto

  • preferences
  • settings
  • network settings
  • choose 50% of your adsl/fibre bandwith as your MAX upload bandwidth

be careful if your child renames their PC some random word it may not be random #childcare #parenting #advice #nsfw #nsfc #firstworldproblems

be careful if your child renames their pc some random word it may not be random #childcare #parenting #advice

the random word “despacito” meant nothing to me when my 10 year old renamed his PC “despacito” (actually “despacito 2”)

from a quick search on @goog #utube it turns out that despacito is a somewhat innocent (aka modern) pop song which has had over 5 billion views and which may or may not be #NSFW or #NSFC but that “despacito 2” is 100% #NSFW and #NSFC

btw my child claims its a complete coincidence that he added the number 2 to his computer name (so i suppose at least his understanding of english is pretty advanced – probably from watching too many inappropriate #utube videos)

(you may have to do some searching on your own as i do not feel it appropriate to post the NSFW / NSFC link on this supposed to be family friendly site)

although im broken hearted that @smugmug have killed @flickr i am joyful that @googleuk are killing #googplus tomorrow #flickrip #flickralt #smn #bmn #mktg #fail

In December 2018, we announced our decision to shut down Google+ for consumers in April 2019 due to low usage and challenges involved in maintaining a successful product that meets consumers’ expectations. We want to thank you for being part of Google+ and provide next steps, including how to download your photos and other content.

On April 2nd, your Google+ account and any Google+ pages you created will be shut down and we will begin deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts. Photos and videos from Google+ in your Album Archive and your Google+ pages will also be deleted. You can download and save your content, just make sure to do so before April. Note that photos and videos backed up in Google Photos will not be deleted.

The process of deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts, Google+ Pages, and Album Archive will take a few months, and content may remain through this time. For example, users may still see parts of their Google+ account via activity log and some consumer Google+ content may remain visible to G Suite users until consumer Google+ is deleted.

As early as February 4th, you will no longer be able to create new Google+ profiles, pages, communities or events.
