I finally figured out how to retrieve my iPhone pics without having to actually find a plug and hook my phone up to my computer, and then move my pictures over to my computer and then move them to where I want them to go.
Okay, I sorta knew how to do it, but I hadn’t actually done it. But I did yesterday, via my new best friend Dropbox, and now I’m all set. I love me some Dropbox because I can put a picture or a file in my Dropbox folder on my laptop, and then I can access it on any of our other computers, including my iPhone. And vise versa.
P.S. I really do love Dropbox. And, in an effort to be completely transparent, if you decide you love Dropbox too and want to sign up for your own Dropbox account, I will get a free GB of space. But the real reason I wanted to share is because I’m completely relieved that I’m finally backed up. After my external hard drive failed the other day (5 years of pictures and videos, ohmygoshIalmostdied) I’m breathing a sigh of relief to have an online solution. Now my desktop, my blog, my website and all my pictures are backed up in one place that I can access from all our computers and all our mobile devices. All the time. And so I thought I’d share.
P.P.S. We even do our budget through Dropbox. So I can see our budget in real time and update it when I’m out and about – and shopping. And no, I don’t get anything if you get YNAB because it’s free. But I figured I’d share that, too.
P.P.S. I don’t love my budget quite as much as I love Dropbox. The end.
