The Mio MiVue 658 Touch dashboard camera is generally a good piece of hardware.
Unfortunately, among some extra features (like included safety cameras warning feature) and some obvious things, found in most dashboard cameras (like being able to use it for just 10-20 seconds without external power source) it also has two huge fuckups, which may not be so obvious to people willing to purchase it.

It seems that GetGO, a loyalty program for Cebu Pacific airline, has some serious problems with anti-spam filters and marketing communication configuration...
I think, I don't need to explain, that there actually was no transaction at all.
When you're deleting your personal profile from Google Chrome browser, it...

Apparently they have some problems with their calculators at Google Groups!
Pretty nice, huh?

In case you didn't know, Windows can install a driver for an unrecognized device:
Where is your god now, Bill?
Well... sometimes you must tell your members a really honest reason, why you can't give them, what they're expecting to get!
Source: SharewareOnSale's promotion email.
OKI engineers proved that you can create a driver setup program, that is not only as less user-friendly as possible, but also isn't able to correctly detect a printer, it is supposed to install drivers for. In 2016 OKI developers proves that such things are still possible.

I was trying to find some rare route with SWISS Airlines and while one-way ticket was find, there were problems finding return trip on that route. SWISS informed me, that in this case I can fill out time table form to check, when their planes are flying on my return route. Well... I did so and this is, what I have found...

There's a stupid (hoping temporary) bug in Wizz Air website's configuration causing users, which are trying to unsubscribe from Wizz Air mail offers to see strange errors, they should not ever see.

British Airways website (actually: booking system) not only still looks like most pages looked ten or even fifteen years ago. Seems, that latest look change they had before Zuckeberg invented Facebook. You can only dream about optimized, mobile-friendly design. Anyway, that is not all. Their website is also full of stupid fuckups and nasty bugs.

It took five years to develop an image uploading mechanism in Google+, that does not block entire page from doing anything else, when uploading image. And that allows you to upload for than one image per once! FIVE years!
For five fucking years Google+ users had to struggle with extreme stupidity of not being able to write post's text during sometimes horribly long image upload process and in the same time were forced to upload image collection one-by-one.
Welcome to the future, Google!
Due to nasty bug in Gmail, warning about possible SPAM takes precedence over possible phising attack warning. Thus, if you receive an e-mail that is both phising attempt and is identified by Gmail as possible SPAM, then you will not see usual red warning, but a simple SPAM warning instead.

Ever wondered, if someone could design a program, who is saving changes without asking user for a permission to do so? Well... the answer is yes! There's even more. You must pay hundreds of bugs for shit-software, that do things like that. You don't believe? Well then, take a look at Enterprise Architect 8's Project Browser tree.

I was forced to change my phone to Microsoft Lumia 535. It was my first Windows Phone based device. The phone is generally a good pick (better in many aspects than all my Android-based phones used before). But, since it is (now) designed and produced by Microsoft, it would be impossible for it, to not have some serious fuckups. Here you'll find a list of biggest ones, that I found so far. Most of them are not too closely tight to Lumia 535 and there is a high chances of possibility, that you will find similar or the same in any other Lumia phone.

I was forced to change browser to Opera after years of using Chrome. The key reason was an absolute lack of Chrome on Windows Mobile and the fact, that on Android it was one of the worst, lest stable and most buggy apps, that I ever used. However, as I may expect, Opera is also full of fuckups, that are only waiting...

You start up your Windows, Skype starts up as well and welcomes you with the following error message:
And everyone knows all about it, right! DAX Error? TUCServer? WTF!
We just love all those Microsoft Fucks, that design their software with plenty of meaningful, self-explaining error messages, right?
You can't set home or work address in Google Maps using PC. You must use mobile device. If you don't have one -- you're screwed. If you do have one and open Google Maps on it and go to
My Places, as instructed, you may be surprised to find out, that this time you can't edit or delete your starred places and you must use PC for this purpose.
This is one of the most brilliant fuckups, Google Fucks has come so far!
I have never been using Microsoft Outlook, because this piece of software is huge, ugly and stupid. And most of all, it is a local, desktop program, thus (on contrary to all kind of webmails) you must install it anywhere in order to use it. Few days ago I was forced to start using this crap and I must admit, that Microsoft Fucks continues their long journey of bringing stupidity and fuckabillity to the highest levels.

SnagIt 8 is supposed to be somehow integrated with Skype, because it's uninstaller requires you to close Skype (among SnagIt's apps) before proceeding with uninstallation process. If you agree for an auto-close, you will be surprised to find out, that SnagIt's uninstaller is not only able to close Skype, but also... its own applications! I died laughing. How can any uninstaller not be able to close own apps (i.e. those, it is about to uninstall)? How can anyone design an uninstaller-like joke, which forces user to manually close all applications, that are being uninstalled?
If you set your Google Calendar's event to be repeated monthly at 31st day of each month, then what would be more reasonable in your opinion:
- repeat it monthly on every last day of a month -- 31st day of each month, that has 31 days and on 30th (28th or 29th in February) for other months,
- repeat it "monthly" on every 31st day of each month, that has 31 days and do not repeat it on every other month, that doesn't have that much days.
I don't know any person, who would pick second option. How can you call something being repeated "monthly", if it occurs only five times per year?
Unfortunately, due to Google Calendar engineers stupidity, second option is, what actually happens in current version of Google Calendar.
On Windows any program can hang and you usually fell no fear, because you can always use Task Manager to kill that nasty, hanged piece of software.
But, what if Task Manager hangs...
When you try to return data from Microsoft Query 97 to a Microsoft Excel 97 worksheet, the spinning globe icon (which signifies that a query is processing) may appear for a long time, and then the query returns no data to your worksheet. If you Google enough deeply to find a solution for this problem you may find solution filed under Q168702 in Microsoft Knowledge Base. It is just a rocket-science killer.

The biggest fuckup of all Nokia / Microsoft Lumia phones is, that you can't manually configure your Wi-Fi connection. You must use DHCP. If your local network does not offer this feature, you simply can't use that network. And you're sucked!
