Google Glass auto-uploads to Google Photos as well as default Google+

It took a while to find this out; I couldn't get any info on the internets so I ran an experiment, making a short Glass video starring (who else) Gray Cat (above) and then seeing what happened.

The video auto-uploaded as usual to Google+ as well as to Google Photos at the same time.

Excellent news since Google+ is shutting down in August 2019.

I'm stoked.

Bonus: I discovered I can easily post Glass vids on Twitter with a click or two, so from now on I'll be putting them up there as well as uploading them to YouTube. 

I wish Glass's now-defunct "Upload to YouTube" hadn't been deep-sixed: it was simple and convenient.

Oh well, you can't have everything.

P.S. Now that YouTube's made it so easy to subscribe — just move your cursor over the round picture of me in my pepperoni T-shirt (in the live video link at the top of this post, not the screen shot just above) then click the big red SUBSCRIBE button.

Hop on board the bandwagon: 1,000,000 by December 31, 2018 or bust.

Sumo Wrestler Stress Ball — "Japanese traditional sports stress relief"


From the website:



The Sumo Wrestler Stress Ball is a brilliant idea, brilliantly executed from a design by Masato Yamamoto.

There is nothing more squeezable than the tire-like body of a sumo wrestler and you will soon be addicted to manipulating this unique stress ball, which is a replica of a sumo wrestler adopting a classic pose from the traditional Japanese sport.

There are two colors of wrestlers (beige, white), so get both if you want to stage sumo bouts!

Features and Details:

• Instructions: Japanese

• 3.5" x 2.4" x 2.2"

• Silicone sponge

• Made in Japan



Yo Susan — no sweat!
