The Morning After: Which 2-in-1 laptop is the best?

This week the new game consoles arrived, and Apple introduced its first Macs with the M1 CPU.

Our podcast crew can help make sense of everything that went down, but for something outside of games and Apple, Cherlynn Low lists the best 2-in-1 laptops you might be able to get right now.

Google won't offer free unlimited photo backups after June 1st

You’ll need to pay for Google One if you plan to back up more than 15GB of photos and videos.

Google Photos

Google plans to discontinue one of the best perks of Google Photos. Starting on June 1st, 2021, any new “high quality” photos or videos (items that Google has compressed to take up less space) you upload to the service will count against a shared 15GB cap that will include your Google Workspace documents, slides and spreadsheets. Once you pass that cap, you’ll need to pay for Google One storage.

To reduce the shock, any “high quality” photos and videos you upload before June 1st won’t count against the cap, giving you some time to decide if you want to continue using the service. And Pixel owners won’t have to worry about buying additional storage as they’ll be exempt from the cap.

Google also plans to introduce a new tool it says will help Photos users more easily manage their backed-up content. The feature will surface blurry or dark photos and suggest you delete them to save space. The price of Google One isn’t changing, at least: $2 per month gets you access to 100GB of storage.
