It’s no secret that I’m a super huge, nerdy Android fan. In fact, I’m already speculating about what the next OS is going to be called. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Android, they name each OS that comes out after some type of dessert. And not only is it just any desert, it follows the alphabet. So here’s the name of the OS from C (cause the names were generic before C) to the current one, O:
- Donut 🍩
- Froyo 🍦
- Honeycomb 🐝
- Ice cream Sandwich
- Kit Kat
- Lollipop 🍭
- P? TBD
My current guesses for P are Popsicle, Pancake, Pastry, Poptart. Really rooting for Popsicle though!
Anyway, I got what’s called a subrogation investigation in the mail the other day. Big words, I know. The gist of the letter was stating that an incident occurred 2 years ago that resulted in me going to the ER and the insurance company wanted extra information. Why they waited two years for the information, I have not a clue. So I’m sitting here thinking, I can’t even remember what I had last Monday for breakfast and I’m supposed to remember something from two years ago??
I talk to the husband about it and he suggested that maybe it was when the jerk bit me real good. I told him I couldn’t remember so he suggested I go back and look through Google Photos, find the injury picture (cause I mean you can’t not take a picture of your injuries, especially the wild ones) and check the date stamp on the picture.
If you don’t utilize Google photos, I’m telling you right now, you should. Not only do you get unlimited cloud storage but it’s so easy to go searching for pictures because you can search by dates, faces, names of objects, etc. It’s fantastic! I go through my photos for the date this supposed incident occurred and sure enough:
Husband was right. The date of my incident was my cat bite. So I called the woman and talked to her about it and basically she wanted to make sure it wasn’t some feral cat at someone else’s house because there’s a special claim process you have to go through for that sort of stuff and I told her no, unfortunately it was my own that is lucky he’s still alive. She laughed and then closed the investigation.
Point of all this, besides me sharing a random life story, is Google Photos is great. Every picture I take on my phone is automatically backed up to the cloud as long as I have a WiFi or data connection. Same for videos as well. I wanted to hate this tech at first because the cloud just seemed like a scary place but I’ve lost a lot of photos and videos from years before from computers unexpectedly dying or external hard drives getting lost. There’s even a back up application that uploads photos on my computer regularly as well. It’s such convenient tech.
Do you guys utilize Google’s services even if you’re an Apple person? What is your general opinion of cloud storage? Which “P” dessert name do you think Google should go with? Let me know in the comments below!
