Backing up photos videos from your cellphone

At the end of December 2015 I got the new Apple iPhone 6s. It took me a while to get used to it. As I always had android Samsung cellphone and I was very comfortable with it. All my friends were raving about the Apple iPhone, so I decided to give it a try.

However, since then I hadn't backed up my digital files. I had tried to connect to my PC as I used to do with my Samsung and tablet, however I didn't get anything going alerting me about my files. It forced me to sign up with iTunes, which I disliked. Today I gave another try to figure out how to download my files. Bingo, I managed to find my files. I clicked on it and found the DCM folder where there were 3 files, within those folders there were total of 2136 files. It equaled to 4.47gb

As I always like to backup my files, I got my main Master external hard drive. I created a new folder there for my iPhone backups: "iPhone backups to May 16 2016" and there I quickly uploaded the photos. It took me a total of 30min to upload, pretty good. Then I had my second backup external hard drive, which is the Archival backup of the Master drive. That took only 6 minutes!

After all was archived in both locations, I deleted all the files on my iPhone.
I just check storage and iCloud Usage: storage and it shows I have used 6.6gb and available 4.8gb. I am supposed to have 16gb hmmm... where is the rest of the 5gb?
I believe the rest might be all those text messages, whatsup etc - got to go thru all that and get rid of.

June 1st we have a session on backing up photos. This seems to be a major issue.

Let's go down memory lane of TV entertainment. This used to be the series "What's My Line" - they would try to guess what line of business someone is. Very interesting and amusing indeed. Have you ever seen those series? No comparison with all those so called "reality" shows.

The glossary of happiness

We encounter many people along our life path. Some are always happy no matter what adversary they face. Others, there aren't any apparent reason to be negative, however they seem to always dwell on the negative. At times, words in translation get lost. Filling the gap in our vocabularies, specially those who know several languages. Here is a great article I hope you will find it useful: The glossary of happiness in the New Yorker by By Emily Anthes , published on May 12, 2016 Your thoughts and comments are welcome!
