Oh, hey, I was going to change your username.

I forget what I was going to change it... "One pump"! That was it. But I forget what the joke was now.

If the photo had no date attached, or something's stripped the metadata, Google will pick up the uploaded date as the correct one. You can, of course manually adjust.

I sort of forgot that John Hurt was in 1984 and then also in V for Vendetta.

Not the most exciting app news, but you can now get Microsoft's Solitaire Collection (Klondike, Freecell, Spider, TriPeaks and Pyramid) on Android and iOS.

Sooo... I traded it in for £95, bought a Moto G4 sim free and put a 32GB card into it. Nice battery life, loads of room and a surprisingly good screen. The facebook app is laggy, but... meh.

Battery lasted about 3 hours. Always complaining about space running out.

(and I wanted something new)

Because he and Mrs Paz were trying new things in the bedroom, and the "something" was the 5X.

That vibrate setting was weak.

Indeed. For anal play, I don't think a phone has been buttered bettered since the 3310.

Is it my phone tracking movement with google fit, or my watch when both are on?

My S7 downloaded NOUGAT overnight which I installed this morning whilst driving into work. It seems.... very much the same, although the font up in the notification bar has changed a bit.

Also it's done that HA HA ONE OF YOUR ICONS HAS VANISHED BUT YOU CAN'T REMEMBER WHAT WAS THERE CAN YOU EVIL LAUGH thing.

The camera offered up instructions about some new swizzies which of course I've already forgotten.

Thrilling stuff.

Ooohhh, my Shield has just got the Nougat update as well. Nvidia's support for the tablet has been very solid in all fairness.

S7 Nougat thing that's better reportage - they've changed the 'Always On' screen thing to now actually display useful information, although this might be more of a Samsung thing than a Google thing so not specifically Nougat. I don't know for sure. And I don't care enough to find out.

Anyway, it now has extra icons that meaningfully relate to the application that generated them, a Facebook message icon, or a Whatsapp message icon, or a 'something is tethered to your hotspot' icon, or a torch icon, and, well, you get the idea.

It's definitely made the always on screen more informative. Hundreds of pounds well spent on that upgrade from the Nexus 5.

So my phone has done this three times now in the last month or so, it's either since the Nougat update or a Samsung update, I'm not sure which as I don't know exactly when it went up the shitter.

Basically, it'll just randomly stop backing up photos to my Google Drive, despite me changing no options at all, and all the options to back up photos to Google Drive, being present and correct.

Eventually it'll put a nag notification in the status bar and inform me it's not backing up my photos, and that I should review my settings, I click on the handy 'Review settings to back up now' link, to be taking to a settings screen where..... everything's already set correctly.

I then close the settings screen down having changed NOTHING AT ALL, and it immediately decides to start backing up all the photos it's missed, and they appear in my Google Drive a couple of minutes later.

Third time it's happened, most recently just this morning.

At a vague guess, it sounds like it's not doing it in the background properly. When you visit the settings it loads the app and starts the upload.

Might be wrong, but it sounds plausible.

The thing is, if I go into the settings screen without using the notification nag prompt, and then close the settings screen, it doesn't then start to back things up.

Like, I noticed a few days ago it wasn't backing up as I had to manually sync a couple of photos from the camera app. I checked the settings screen at that time and verified they were correct. A reboot of the phone made no difference either.

It only seems to be when it finally nags me about it and sends me off to the settings screen itself, that it starts syncing again.
