    @johngordon Great question. No idea, but I’m more inclined to think “probably.” Google has historically been better about data preservation/migration than MS or Apple.

      @platkus LOL! It’ll be like TSA pat-downs: “Sir, I’m going to use the back of my hand when coming in contact with sensitive areas to ensure you have an optimum fit…” @tewha

          @mdhughes Yes, EOL’d a while ago. Google Photos actually reuses Picasa’s logo/icon.

            When Blue Shield updated our account, they made Spouse primary. With his name, his social security number, and my birth date. I am the only person handling this and always give my name for the primary contact. Someone thought otherwise because why?

                @platkus You keep coming back to that “point” like I haven’t responded to it. I really don’t get your goal here. And I’m not known for having this much restraint, either! 😝 @tewha

                  @chriskrycho Nah. THIS [posts.app.net] is a little snarky. That was a factual contest, with zero attempt at dismissal or denigration. Where’s the snark in saying “she’s not even an employee?” @platkus @tewha

                    @platkus So why are we still going back and forth? Yes, they’ve had women on stage. My error; I actually would like to see staff on stage during the keynote, clearly owning products the way Googke and MS have. Where’s the problem? @tewha @chriskrycho

                      @platkus Ok, so they have. What do you want me to do, delete the thread? After you pointed it out I clarified my specific interest, but you keep insisting my clarifications are invalid. Yes, Christy Turlington has been on a stage. Yay, equality? @tewha

                        @remus LOL. Just like their 0.7% black non-janitorial staff rates! 😈

                          @tewha So then @platkus can stop having a snit, unbunch his Apple-branded iDrawers and accept that lauding the Fruit Company’s competitors for having women staff on stage during the keynote and challenging it to match is not persecution? That’d be nice.

                            @platkus Perhaps they wouldn’t be “exploited” if Apple didn’t devote precious time at WWDC to empty marketing? @tewha

                              @tewha No harm done! We’re in total agreement there.

                                @tewha Maybe, but Google has had women from both engineering (a computer scientist talking about Google Now) and product (offline, maps, etc) on stage during the keynote. Not models. Not guests showing off their products. Google women.

                                  @danv2 I meant Build and I/O compared to WWDC (as of right now although it could happen in a couple weeks). Not even close. Hasn't been a woman of Apple's significance on stage for the longest time if not ever. I hope they prove me wrong.

                                    @tewha That’s awesome, but—admittedly not spelled out in my original post—I’m speaking of the keynote, the pinnacle of attention during these conferences. The Google I/O keynote is in progress; that’s what spurred the remark.
