How Using Long Filenames will Revolutionize Data Management

🔥NEW Use long descriptive filenames… I do.
For Video… My app can use the filename (FN) to determine the part of the video I want to see. Without that feature you are scrolling through the video just like you would pictures.
The FN contains the start point, duration, speed, repeat, freeze and much more.
Any media player should implement this easy and smart use of filenames.
Long FNs are the overlooked jem in computing.

Pics of Each and Every Receipt, License, Govt Taxes, Tickets...

NOW I'm curating everything where I have a receipt, tax info, Govt paperwork. Anything that I may be interested in keeping.
I take a picture... And immediately give it a long filename... DONE.
The info is mine forever and ever... And at my fingertips.
Maybe the greatest curator of all time...
