- Google Fi
- Google Fiber
- Family Sharing for Google Music/Apps/Movies
All in all, it hasn’t been that much of a pain but with Google Fiber, I get 1TB of storage that is attached to an account I don’t do anything with, our Google Music account is tied to a different account than my Google Assistant so “Okay Google play (something)” doesn’t work right and so on.
I’m thinking about consolidating everything to a single Gmail.com-based account and setup Gmail to send as my actual email address.
Anyone gone through a similar process? Ideally, I’d like to lose as little data but will assume there will be some along the lines of playlists, etc.
Entering 2018, I plan on setting a New Years’ resolution of using social media less, and blogging more.
The founder of Drupal, a “competing” CMS to WordPress hits the nail on the head here. I’m planning on doing the same.
I do like that I look up old friends on Facebook. I like it as a directory, but as a content consumption tool, it seldom brings joy to my day. Maybe if it had a filter to only display “life news”—weddings, births, illnesses, deaths, new jobs and the like.
So yeah, here’s to blogging more and owning my own content more in 2018.
Today is January 1st, which in the Catholic tradition in the Solemnity for Mary, Mother of God and, since the 1960s, World Day of Peace.
Global peace is a hard nut to crack and something I feel powerless to directly impact. But, for 2018, I pray that we all can create for ourselves a little sliver of peace in our day-to-day life with the hope that it will inspire others to do the same and, in the end, makes the world a little better.
Being at peace doesn't mean inaction or acceptance of the world as it is, either. It is a calmness that centers us toward our Creator, hearing the whispers of the Holy Spirit guiding us to know what we can or can not do, strengthen us to do those things we can do but are afraid to, and settles us when we worry about the things we can not do.
I look forward to 2018 as a year of hope and of hopeful action.
I'm both proud of being so close to the gift card amount and upset at Target for not eating the one cent. They spent more on processing than they gained on the transaction.
