Word has a nifty feature that helps user in printing envelopes. Cool, easy and useful. All was fine in Word 2007. Few days after I switched to Word 2010 only to discovered that some moron got his hands on code responsible for this feature in newest Word. At wasted it totally!
As always in Microsoft, it is about small things that are so anoying, because are small and could be fixed within moments.

SPAM filter onboard Gmail is pretty good. Actually, I haven't got any problems with it (the same amount of false positives as in all other similar tools) up until now.
I receive a daily backup summary generated by my own server. Backup process runs every day at 3 p.m. and about half an hour later I get a summary e-mail. Since this is auto-generated message, its content is always nearly identical. Some filenames differs sometimes . It's been working for over a year.

Quite interesting. For over a year this e-mail hasn't been suspicious to Gmail at all. Of course, I have never marked such messages as SPAM manually. And all of sudden, after receiving about four hundred of them, it started to wonder if it might be SPAM.

Google is the company that always is releasing own version of already existing software, services or solutions (browser, office suite... the list is long). Or providing users with free1, yet alternates way to solve or do something.
The only thing is that they nearly always have to fuck something up. Google Chrome's extension called "Remote Desktop BETA" is no exception to that.
1Free as in "we are stealing all your data with this, so you're actually paying with your privacy".
