Google Shutting Down Google+ Photos !

Google announced in a post on its social network site, it will begin winding down Google+ Photos: on August 1st we’ll start to shut down Google+ Photos -- initially on Android, and soon thereafter on the Web and iOS. How to fix that ... ? So you need to download the new Google Photos today for uninterrupted access to all your photos, videos and albums. To do that use android.apps.photos. With the new app you’ll still be able to backup, edit, and share your photos and videos, with unlimited storage, automatic organization, and more. The biggest difference is that :
  • Google+ users had to actually visit the network on the web to access photos;
  • Google Photos has its own dedicated web interface.
Also your photos and video will still remain available for download through Google Takeout - a program that allows users to download a copy of their data stored within Google products.

The VirtualBox and Fedora 22.

I used the VirtualBox - version 4.3.28.xxxx and Fedora Linux 22.
The main reason was to test how fast it's the  Fedora 22 over VirtualBox.
And the answer was just a few minutes.
My hardware come with NVIDIA video card Geforce 740M, CPU: 2117U -1.80Ghz and 4Gb RAM.
I used Fedora-Workstation-netinst-x86_64-22.iso.
This will take some time when you install because this will use the network to download all packages.
You need to set one new  Linux os over Virtual Box and make this setting:
Load the Fedora .iso and start it with Show/Play button.

After that, if all packages are on your computer then the next step comes with unloading the .iso file and select the virtual drive.
This can be seen under Controler: SATA. Let all settings under Network: NAT.
Start it with Show button and you will see working well.

I like very much the new Virtual Box and Fedora also, because it's fast (~ 1 min) and I don't need to start another hardware to test my linux stuff.
