Easy Photo Storage






Photo storage has never been easier (and free)! If you’re like me, you often get those annoying pop-ups on your iPhone that say your iCloud storage is full and to fix it you need to purchase more storage. Not so!

Google Photos is the answer that provides unlimited photo and video storage (all backed up in the cloud). All you need to do is download the Google Photos app to your device (iOS, Android) log into your Gmail account and let it do the work for you. Note: On your first login, all photos on your phone will be backed up, so this may take some time. Once done, every photo and video  will available online at: https://photos.google.com/. You can then delete everything from your phone and avoid those annoying messages/alerts.

With Google Photos, you can create albums, share them with others (via email, Facebook or Twitter), make a video or keep everything for your own personal viewing pleasure. Whether working from your cell phone, iPad or desktop, all your images will be fully accessible to you anytime, anywhere (and others if you so desire).

You can also preserve old by photos scanning them (the high tech way) with Photo Scan (watch).


Marriot hearts Netflix

watchI love when two companies I love join forces! I think there should be much more of this!!! Recently we saw Starbucks and Spotify combine forces to partner on a music streaming service. Now, Marriott and Netflix are teaming up! And you KNOW how I feel about Marriott!!!

Marriott Hotels Becomes First To Offer Netflix On Guest Room Televisions: The partnership allows members to sign in to their existing accounts to stream content on their hotel room’s internet-connected TV or if guests do not have a Netflix account, they can sign up on the spot! (Remember Netflix offers a free 30-day trial). The service is available now at 6 hotels (New York Marriott East Side, San Jose Marriott, Princeton Marriott, Newport Marriott, Dallas/Fort Worth Marriott Solana, Bethesda Marriott Suites), with six launching this summer (Marriott Marquis Washington, DC, San Francisco Marriott Marquis, Atlanta Marriott Marquis, Dayton Marriott, San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino, Anaheim Marriott). The press release also makes reference to the Netflix being available at 24-other properties (no mention of locations) with more on the way. By 2016 all of Marriott’s 300+ properties will offer Netflix.

I have loved to have this while I was traveling across Europe!!! Let’s hope they introduce this internationally! Marriott Netflix


Rock the Vote‘s mission is to engage and build political power for young people in our country. It fuses pop culture, politics, and technology to mobilize the millennial voting bloc and the youth vote, protect voting rights, and advocate for an electoral process and voting system that works for the 21st century electorate. RTV’s latest venture includes a video from Lil Jon and Lena Dunham with the new slogan #TURNOUTFORWHAT, a play on Lil Jon’s popular song, Turn Down For What.

According to Urban Dictionary, “turn down for what” is a rhetorical question. “turn up” is the act of getting drunk and high and being reckless so “turn down” would mean sobering up. turn down for what is really saying i am fu**ed up and will continue to be all night no matter what.
