TECHNOLOGY: APPLE and GOOGLE with suck at tagging photos

I like to phot everything that passes through my hands.  ID cards, letters, people, etc. etc.

From time to time I need to find the “needle in a haystack”.  Unfortunately, I can’t “tag” photos to indicate what they are and why they’d be important.


I have to create “albums” and “folders” and what not that some developer thinks is “kool”.


Why not tags like Twitter and Facebook?  Why reinvent the wheel?  Like labels in Gmail but not in photos.



SOFTWARE: iMessage on the MAC OS X doesn’t report completely

Found a confusing “use case” with iMessage on the MAC OS X:

Sent two texts this morning, one worked and one failed repeatedly.

Figured out why it was failing, duh.

I text from the mac because I like the full keyboard. I text X and Y every morning and night. (“I’m alive … still!”)

This morning X’s went through to her iPhone as usual, but Y’s didn’t.

Then I realized iMessage uses the iPhone to text Y with SMS. And my iPhone was out of power. And, the MAC version of iMessage just reports: “not sent”.

Which technically is true, but it should say something like “no response from your Iphone, dummy”. Argh!

Strike one for a poor design. Or is that “a feature”?
