Photos stored in Auto Backup now accessible in Gmail messages with new button

Google today announced its latest addition to Gmail's email message composition tools, with the release of the Insert Photo button for its web version. Allowing users to access and insert photos that have been uploaded to their Auto Backup from their phone, including photos in emails through a web application is now simplified. Entire albums can also be shared, if images are uploaded and organized on Google Photos. Within the body of an email draft, users can resize images by dragging on any corner of the inserted photo.

Corning's USB 3.Optical cables now available

Corning's new USB 3.Optical cables are now available for purchase, offering greater durability and thinner technology compared to copper cables. Intended for a fast connection over longer distances, the cables feature a 5Gb per second data rate. The USB 3.Optical cables are compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 devices, and can extend a USB device's reach without requiring additional power supply. Pricing starts at $110 for a 10-meter cable, which can be purchased online.
