    You all know I love Google. Well I dumped over 12,000 into their photos app and let it organize everything for me cause my shit was mess. You've all heard that part of the story. A lot of those pics were taken with various iPhones that didn't have the orientation flag set right and they were sideways. Well today google said "we found all your sideways photos, would you like us to rotate them?" And I'm all "yes" and BOOM 1,000's of photos that ive been fixing here and there are now correct. No effort needed on my part.

    Google photos is the greatest computer service ever created.

    I'm obsessed on their guitar sound the last 10 years or however long. That song aint bad at all. Even Kirk dialed it back kept it simple so he didn't embarrass himself. It's that squashed mish-mash wet paper distortion I can't fucking stand. They are the biggest metal band ever maybe? Pay someone to get you a good tone since you're all obviously deaf.

    What kind of permissions are you granting them when you load your photos into it?

    None. They store/organize/fix em for me and that's that. Nobody has access or anything unless I grant it.

    Just throw a few hundred or 1,000 in there and you'll see how insanely awesome it is. If you don't like it just delete them and forget it.

    I'm home with my 2 or 3 meg upload service. I'll wait until I get back to work with 150 meg up. Not that i would ever take care of personal business on work time.

    They won't accept them that quick anyway. It took me a few nights to get them all done. Idk if they process them during upload or what but you'll never saturate that 150 connection.

    I get the craziest notifications.

    "Your Assistant created a new panorama for you".

    There are 5 or 6 panoramas, almost seamless, that it made from photos never intended to BE a panorama.

    It just recognized three or four photos shared adjacent info and stitched them. It's crazy. And the gifs. It will make animations for you.

    I even have a movie, with music, titled "They grow up so fast" that shows my daughters posing together thru the years. All done automatically by the photo assistant.

    The pictures I take on my iPhone show correctly in the photos app of my Mac for me.

    Wow!!! They did all of that all, While they analyzed them for facial recognition and gathered as much information as possible for their clients and then making sure you're not a terrorist for the fbi... Impressive..
