How to use Google Drive like a boss

Google

In 2018, Google Drive hit a billion users – making it the eighth of Google’s products to have over one billion users. But out of all of them, how many can claim that they’ve never struggled to find a file stuck between holiday pictures uploaded in no particular order?

Here is a round-up of tips to make the most of Google’s beloved storage service, so that you never again lose precious time scrolling past unnamed documents and duplicates of monthly budgets.

Learn which files can go where and how

Google Drive is all about storing files. But which files? Well, it turns out, pretty much all of them – it’s just a matter of knowing how to. If you install Google’s Backup and Sync programme, for example, all files on your computer, as well as the changes you make to them, will automatically back up to your Drive. You can also download Save to Google Drive, an extension that will appear on your web browser and that will let you save anything you see online and which you deem worthy of interest to a Drive folder. And don’t forget that you can save time and avoid downloading Gmail attachments by uploading them directly to your Drive instead.

Drive can also be a faster option when sending files – and that will come in handy when your email attachments reach Gmail’s 25MB attachment limit. Using the Google Drive icon at the bottom of your email, you can insert up to 10 gigabytes worth of pictures and documents. Another option, if your document can be shown to the public, is to share it to the web by clicking “Public – on the web” as you get a shareable link. The file, which will be in your name, will be made available to search engines.

New surveillance tech means you'll never be anonymous again

WIRED

The fight over the future of facial recognition is heating up. But it is just the beginning, as even more intrusive methods of surveillance are being developed in research labs around the world.

In the US, San Francisco, Somerville and Oakland recently banned the use of facial recognition by law enforcement and government agencies, while Portland is talking about forbidding the use of facial recognition entirely, including by private businesses. A coalition of 30 civil society organisations, representing over 15 million members combined, is calling for a federal ban on the use of facial recognition by US law enforcement.

Meanwhile in the UK, revelations that London's Metropolitan Police secretly provided facial recognition data to the developers of the Kings Cross Estate for a covert facial recognition system have sparked outrage and calls for an inquiry. The Information Commissioner's Office has launched an investigation into the legality of the program. But the scandal comes at the same time as a landmark ruling by the High Court in Cardiff that said the use of facial recognition by South Wales police is legal. (The decision is likely to be appealed).

Facial recognition is only the tip of the creepy surveillance iceberg, however. If strict regulation is brought in to govern the use of facial recognition, it is possible we may simply see a switch to one, or several, of the other forms of surveillance technologies currently being developed. Many are equally if not more invasive than facial recognition – and potentially even harder to regulate. Here's a look at some of what might be coming down the pipeline.
