    I find this point of view and observations pretty interesting. Of course the same applies equally to Google as the Google's Photo App is also geared towards photo archiving. Of course as a person who rarely takes pictures with the phone and deletes them almost as soon as they've served their purpose I'm OK with that approach, but looking at my wife's usage patterns I tend to agree with the author. Out of her 30GB+ of pictures a 30-40% chunk is definitely something she hasn't meant to keep, but lacked the discipline to find and delete once no longer needed.

    The person spoke so fast, it was difficult for me to understand her. (him? still pre-pubescent? The written article was supposedly by a guy. The voice in the video was very, um, soprano.)

    The functionality they propose already exists in apps. I don't see it as a responsibility of the mfg to build specific functionality into the camera other than expand exposure controls and other features common to cameras. So I guess I disagree with the article. (The attitude sounds more like a spoiled, entitled, clueless, "affluenza" life-inexperienced youth.)

    I haven't watched the video, only read the text. Again, based on my wife's usage I'd say the only thing that I'd like to see added is an ability to easily tag the photo as "temporary", so that it is easy to find and delete them in bulk at a later date and would exclude them from being backed up.

    I absolutely agree, specifically since I spent three hours last night prior to reading this post, deleting the pictures from Photos on my Mac.

    I still have more to go. That would be great if it went into a separate folder marked temporary.
