I have never been completely happy with photo management—specifically, with regard to photos in the cloud. Options were limited and always involved making concessions:

  • Either fill up your device and not have photos available on others, which is what most people do, which has always baffled me
  • Use Photo Stream to have *some* of your photos in the cloud available on all devices (and use iPhoto to fill the missing gap, in a way that’s always felt hacky)
  • Use Dropbox, but forego a native experience and non-destructive editing, on top of having to pay for extra storage and manually keeping folders/albums organized
  • Sync with iPhoto, which would still take up quite a bit of room on your devices (even after they’re shrunk in size)

Recently, I even started testing Flickr which is *so* close to being ideal (they give you 1TB—with a T!—for free, albums sync, edits sync, and the new interface feels great in the browser or on the phone), but still lacks in some areas (particularly its appalling “Organizr” bulk meta editor, and lack of non-destructive editing).

So, you may not be surprised that of all the new features coming in the new iOS 8 (and even including OS X Yosemite), THIS is the one that’s gotten me the most excited!

All your photos on all your devices all the time. Edits propagate to all devices. Originals stay intact in the cloud, so you can revert any time. Albums sync across all devices. And any new photos go to all devices, as well. Native app. No thinking/setup required. So cool!

The only minor drawback: most people will have to add on to their free 5GB, if they have a big photo library. However, with their new pricing structure, I think it’ll be a fair price. About $1/month for 20GB. That’s plenty for me, but might not be enough for people who are constantly snapping pictures.

One thing I’m  interested to see is if they allow for bulk uploading into the cloud, though, since, without it, this only solves half the problem. I don’t see why they wouldn’t allow for that, but who knows. They’ve done strange things in the past. Like Photo Stream. Yikes!

Anyway, stoked! Who else is excited?

"

Rodger was a website forum called PUAHate.com, which describes itself as the ‘Anti-Pickup-Artist Movement’ and aims to reveal ‘the scams, deception, and misleading marketing techniques used by dating gurus and the seduction community to deceive men and profit from them.’

Its members are all men who have spent a lot of time and money on books and seminars and other materials that claim to help men ‘pick-up’ women - but failed.

The bitter, often misogynistic threads are full of tales of woe from men who don’t know how to get women to date them and blame the women themselves for the problem…

Rodger’s actions have been lauded on the site by other members who have called him a ‘hero.’

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE MENTAL ILLNESS TO YOU? THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY HE WAS PART OF IS CALLING HIM A HERO. OR DO YOU THINK EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM IS MENTALLY ILL TOO?

LET’S FACE IT: IT’S NOT MENTAL ILLNESS THAT’S TO BLAME. STOP BLAMING MENTAL ILLNESS. LOOK AT THE FACTS. THIS IS A CULTURE OF MISOGYNY THAT ENABLES AND ENCOURAGES VIOLENCE AND ENTITLEMENT IN HORRIBLE MEN.

Anonymous said: Hi. I have a few legit questions. If someone kills someone dont they have to be in some way shape or form mentally unstable? Can you be a completely stable person and murder? Also why is it bad to say that someone is mentally unwell when they killed someone? Also if someone has been confirmed diagnosed with a disorder and the do kill someone is it wrong to point out that disorder? If so then why?

meajoraswrath:

If someone kills someone dont they have to be in some way shape or form mentally unstable?

No. People who have no diagnosis at all and show no symptoms of diagnosis murder people all the time. They also commit other violent crimes. Believe it or not, some people are just entitled pieces of shit. Some people are just simply bad people. Mental illness has nothing to do with it.

Can you be a completely stable person and murder?

Yes. You can also commit mass genocide. See: Adolf Hitler, who was mentally stable, had NO mental disorder to speak of. His only “condition” was that he was a racist, homophobic sack of shit.

Also why is it bad to say that someone is mentally unwell when they killed someone?

Because it creates further stigma against mentally ill people. Because it affects how we are treated professionally, in hospitals, and even by police. A schizophrenic boy was murdered in his own home recently because a police officer shot and killed him SIMPLY BECAUSE THE OFFICER ASSUMED HIS DISORDER MADE HIM DANGEROUS.

Also if someone has been confirmed diagnosed with a disorder and the do kill someone is it wrong to point out that disorder? If so then why?

It’s not wrong to point out the disorder. I’m not going to tell you to erase someone’s identity. However, it IS wrong to make a LINK between their mental illness and the fact they murdered someone. You can say a black guy murdered somebody as stating a fact, and whatever. But the minute you act like he murdered somebody BECAUSE he’s black, then that’s super racist. Obviously. No one questions this because it’s common fucking sense, yet y’all act like it’s some mind-blowing revelation to tell y’all not to fucking blame a murder on mental illness.

P.S. A mentally ill person more likely to be a victim of a violent crime than they are to commit a violent crime themselves. Educate yoself.

P.P.S. If men murder because they are mentally ill, then why don’t we see the same pattern in mentally ill women. Wow holy shit it’s almost like people murder because of privilege and entitlement and not because they’re mentally ill.

"We don’t know if Elliot Rodger was mentally ill. We don’t know if he was a “madman.” We do know that he was desperately lonely and unhappy, and that the Men’s Rights Movement convinced him that his loneliness and unhappiness was intentionally caused by women.
Because this is what the Men’s Rights Movement does: it spreads misogyny, it spreads violence, and most of all it spreads a sense of entitlement towards women’s bodies.
Pretending that this is the a rare act perpetrated by a “crazy” person is disingenuous and also does nothing to address the threat of violence that women face every day. We can’t just write this one off – we need to talk about all of the fucked up parts of our culture, especially the movements that teach men that they have the right to dominate and intimidate and violate women, that lead to this, and we need to change things. Because if we don’t, I guarantee that this will happen again. And again. And again."

Some of these don’t even have non-White people in the background. That’s the reason I stopped watching “Friends”.
Like damn.. I [sorta] understand white people only hang out with each other cause our society is segregated. Okay… but DAMN, can we at least be in the background?? You’re in NEW YORK CITY… you’re walking down a sidewalk.. and NO ONE is non-white? Really?
