    Can you block off zones? Only notify you if they enter the driveway zone? Very handy to eliminate car notifications.

    You can really refine it, I just haven't taken the time. No matter how well you tune it, you'll still get false alarms and get tired of looking at them.

    Had the same deal here Friday night. Was sitting down in my living room watching TV around 1:45 with the lights on. All of a sudden something catches my eye in my driveway. I sit up more to look out the window, and there is a guy walking down my driveway. As I stood up he saw me, turned and started walking out the yard. As I got to my door, he is two houses up trying to get someone's attention, I look across the street and there is another guy at my neighbours' BMW X1. I yell and the two of them bolt up the road. I grab the cell to call non emergency line, and as I am standing on my step talking to them two more are walking up the road and are grabbing another neighbours truck handles on the street. I yelled out get the fuck out of there, and they take off.

    first time I've had that issue in our area. fucking scumbags

    I'm guessing the Google Plus ones you installed don't bring back too many results?

    Copy and pasted this. Could be a c&p fail..

    Alex Harker was skiing with friends at the Lake Louise ski resort in Banff, Alberta, a week ago when the group stopped to take some photos on Harker’s Android smartphone. After shooting a few shots, Harker found that the AI-powered panorama stitching feature inside his Google Photos app had created the photo above as the suggested panorama for his scene.

    For some reason, Google Photos saw fit to insert Harker’s friend Matt as a colossal bust in the snowy mountain landscape, making the guy look like a colossus peering over the hill at Harker.

    [​IMG]

    “Google Photos offers you animations if several photos are taken in quick succession, sometimes puts filters on your photos, and offers panoramas if it notices your photos are side by side,” Harker writes.

    “I literally took like 3 pictures, one with them in, and two without them,” he says. “And for some bizarre reason Google Assistant offered me a really strange panorama of the 3 photos spliced together.”

    Here are the three photos Google Photos saw before it decided to create its masterpiece:

    [​IMG]

    Last Thursday, Harker shared the photo on Reddit with the caption: “I took a few shots at Lake Louise today and Google offered me this panorama.” The post has racked up over 187,000 upvotes and has become one of the top Reddit posts of all time.

    Good job, Google Photos. You’re so intelligent that even your fails turn into big wins.

    I'm dealing with millenials as interns at the moment. One felt "offended" after she watched a youtube video on frontend automation that was targeted for beginners. Which she is.
