Save multiple images in iMessage

A friend recently texted me a lot of photos via iMessage. I needed to save them to Photos so I could export them to my desktop and upload to Google Places for her business.

I was worried I would have to save them one at a time. I turned to Google and found this article on how to save multiple images from iMesssage.

  • Basically go into the message from your contact in iMessage.
  • Click on their name at the top
  • Click on ‘info’
  • Scroll down to the photos
  • Press and hold on one
  • Select ‘More’
  • Press on the images you want and notice the blue checkmark in the bottom right corner
  • When done hit save and boom!

Google’s caste system is bad for workers—and bad for Google, too — Quartz

We were at the world’s most enviable workplace, allegedly, but were repeatedly reminded that we would not be hired full-time and were not part of the club. Technically, we were employees of a legal staffing agency whose staff we’d never met. We didn’t get sick leave or vacation and earned considerably less than colleagues with the same qualifications who were doing the same work.

Sounds like Google is Uber for office workers. It does not appear to help create a very conducive culture all around.

I work remotely but feel a sense of culture that most of my office jobs have not had. Being fully employed is a big part of this as it gives one level of equality. Open meetings with the entire company is critical. Free access and encouragement to speak freely with anyone on the company is also critical. Companies and cultures die in silence.

While I might miss some water cooler banter I am also missing the micro aggressive non-verbal bullshit that is constantly rampant in any office space. Since I work for the work and not the social ness of my workers this seems like a good trade off.

Yes I like my coworkers and think I would probably hang out with most of them if we lived near each other. However I spend enough time outside of work to have a healthy social life.

Influence operations exploit divisions in our society using vulnerabilities in our information ecosystem. We have to move away from treating this as a problem of giving people better facts, or stopping some Russian bots, and move towards thinking about it as an ongoing battle for the integrity of our information infrastructure – easily as critical as the integrity of our financial markets. When it’s all done and over with, we’ll look back on this era as being as consequential in reshaping the future of the United States and the world as World War II.

This is what I am trying to get at when I say that social networks aren’t useful. There are much better methods of communication than signing up for a closed system that is purpose built to agree with you on everything. Resulting in your unwavering attention and obedience.
