1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    After some searching, I haven't seen a thread on this. I tried to upload a batch of pics I took with my Motorola Droid camera to Picasa. I've been able to do this successfully for last 6 months until recently. Now I am receving the following error message after each attempt: Failed Authentication Failed. Is there a way to re-sign into Picasa from the Droid? I thought they were always sync'd ?

    Don't know the specific issue, but I would try going to the home screen, menu, settings, programs, manage programs, all programs, my uploads, clear data.

    Thanks for the tip. I tried what you recommended above. I was still getting the same error. So I decided to go online and look at my Picasa account. Apparently I've maxed out my free photo storage. You're only allowed 1 GB. Its not unlimited like Gmail supposedly is. Guess I need to go back and delete some files.

    I'd still rather upload all pics to Picasa- as I feel this is more secure than FB changing their privacy settings practically on a daily basis.

    Upgrade Picasa storage: I paid like $20 for a year of +80GB. I think they have like $5 for 5GB or something, too. Well worth it just for the convenience and not having to delete stuff.

    I was getting a similiar error when I would use wifi. But when I switched to 3G it worked fine.
