Having the 2022 Winter Olympics on the other side of the world in China brings both the good and bad for me personally in terms of time zones. It makes it very difficult to follow the games while sleeping however, on those rare insomniac nights I have something more interesting to watch than a testosterone enhancing infomercial.
Many of you are likely iPhone owners, but do not sleep on this first article I am sharing, as it can benefit you as well. Google Photos has announced some changes to its allotment of free storage, which will force people who rely on Google to store their family videos, photos, and memories to think and be more proactive in the amount of data they are storing and uploading. A link to the article here explains that many Apple iPhone users do not realize that they too can benefit from Google’s commitment to 15GB of free storage for their customers.

I remember growing up and the old rotary phone ringing during dinner time and we’d frustratingly find out that it was telemarketers. This was before caller ID or the ability to just silence the ringers.
