Google Drive Account Change
I recently came across an issue with Google Drive. I had started using it with one account on my MBP and then switch to a business account. For a variety of reasons I stopped using it with the business account and wanted to switch back to the original account (my main Google account).
I couldn’t do that, there was no way to log in to my business account anymore to disable the Google Drive on my computer. This left me quite frustrated and looking for solutions. Finally I figured out a way of deleting the old drive info without needing to do anything drastic like reinstall the operating system.
Exit the Drive app.
Open a Finder window.
Press Command + Shift + G - this will open a small panel asking you to enter a directory location
Type (without quotes) “~/Library/Application Support/Google”
Delete the Drive folder.
Open the Drive app.
Are you annoyed with those pops the let you know you’ve changed the volume?
Heres how to turn that off. Go to your system preferences and click sound. In the sound effects tab uncheck “Play feedback when volume is changed”
In the early days of mp3 players, before the iPod changed everything, before iTunes and before CD’s seemed obsolete (they were always obsolete to me) there was the RIO 600.
Rio shatters the personal sound barrier with customizable features and high-end audio you simply cannot get anywhere else! Capture and playback up to 1 hour of digital-quality music from the Internet or your CDs. Seize your audio, master your mix, retool your memory, even select your faceplate color - it’s radical freedom of choice. Rio 600 supports the dominant audio formats like MP3 and Windows Media, and can be upgraded to emerging digital standards so you can keep your Rio up-to-date. It holds 1 hour of digital quality music (32MB) or 16 hours of spoken word. Rio 600 features the following play modes: repeat one track, all tracks, or random play. Rio 600 has no moving parts so you can take the Rio anywhere and it’ll never skip a beat. Featherweight ergonomic design and large, easy-to-read LCD make it perfect for extreme listening activities.
Of course almost none of that was true, the RIO was a piece of crap. It worked half the time and made transporting an hour worth of music more trouble than it was worth.
There had been some mp3 players available before the RIO from companies we no longer associate with portable music. The big name at the time was the Creative jukebox, roughly the size and shape of a portable cd player.
Then came the iPod, it was completely different. I remember the first time I saw one. With it’s white acrylic shell and white headphones, it stood out. This was my freshman year of high school and it cost $500, well north of anything I could afford. But I wanted it. Up until then apple was known for the beige Apple II and those fruity iMacs. This literally changed all of that.
