This is the weakest part of Chrome browser and one of the biggest IT fuckups, this world has ever seen! To be honest, I simply thrill, whenever I hear "Chrome Password Manager". Thinking, what in the name of God did they wasted this time?
There are many, many huge fuckups in Android 4.0. About most of them I wrote in a separate article. But dropping the native-USB support in favor of some lame shit and extreme useless stupidity, called MTP (Mobile Transport Protocol), seems to be so devastating fuckup, that it surely deserves for a separate article.
If you change your website and some, old-time ago remembered, links stops to work, you must implement a permant redirect to new, working URL!
Failing to fulfil this simple rule may lead you into loosing your customers because no one want's to see some garbage, even when using old links.
Thus, this is very surprising that companies like eBay had fuckups like this!
The Pirate Bay (in cooperation with the Cybernorms Research Group -- researchers affiliated with the Lund University Internet Institute in southern Sweden) has made the third annual survey to "better understand file sharing people's needs".
Idiots at TPB and Cybernorms Research Group put:
- all countries from Central and South America to one group (one "continent"),
- while separating "all" countries from "North America" to a separate group.
So, if you select the latter one in step four, you have... two options to choose in step five: Canada and United States!
Surely, putting everything to one group, called "Americas" was beyond imagination of TPB or CRG morons.
There are new, enhanced security settings in KitKat, which causes, that you (the device owner) can't copy files directly to
Downloads folder. Well... you can, only these files are not visible on your device once you access this folder. This is first of fuckups on Android 4.4 KitKat. And so... the Google Android Fuckup Saga continues.
You know that PayPal isn't English? It is an AMERICAN English! And if you have any account with non-American nationality, due to large fuckup in PayPal, you can't access neither help system nor contact form. This is another big fuckup found in the world's largest on-line payment platform and it makes me start thinking if my money is as safe as I thought it would be just a few days ago?
When your account has so called non-standard (non-American) nationality, you can only select your own language and
English. You can't select
U.S. English< because this option isn't available on the list:
And since you're
U.S. English, any attempt to open Help Center or Contact Us page ends up with a beautiful error message:
Android 4.2 JellyBean has come to my phone this night, so Android Fuckup saga continues. Of course, again, I have lost my nearly entire data plan, during middle of the night, because on of the biggest Android 4.2 fuckups is, that it again download system updates via GPRS, giving a damn shit, whether user decided to update everything via WiFi only.
I understand that Microsoft Office is eager to secure me as much as it is possible. And therefore there was introduced a "read-only" mode. How Microsoft / Windows / Office "knows" which of my private files come from the Internet and which don't? It gives me the creeps... Moreover, it seems to be a cool, security-oriented feature. But why it works for printing documents too?
What harm can I do myself or to my computer, even though the document contains a malicious code or any other kind of unwanted content if I print it out on a piece of paper? Will that execute some harmful macro? Is there any reason or sense behind this, except for pissing me off each time I have to click on
Enable Printing button on such docs?
Linkedin does not use any solution that would presist user state across subdomains, i.e. you can be logged-in on
www.linkedin.com and logged-out (looking at the registration form) on
nz.linkedin.com. Or any other country-related linkedin subdomain.
In other words, you can display somebody's profile browsing through main domain (e.g.
http://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=66666666) and you're logged in. But when you use the very same guy's national URL (presented below his/her photo), e.g.
nz.linkedin.com/pub/some-guy/1/235/567 you'll see a form asking you to either login or register a new account.
What a lame!
If you ever lose your username/login at Clickatell (one of the world's biggest text messaging provider), you won't be able to recover it. Why? Since you go to a login page and click on
Forgot username? link, you'll be redirected to... Forgot Password form, where you're asked to provide your... username!
Nice! :] I just love stupid people in the Internet...
I've applied to Toyota Motor Group. As with every international company, I had to create my own "jobs" account and fill application form.
During application process I found these two issues:
- there was absolutely no e-mail validation -- you can use Toyota system to abuse or spam others!
- password to my account was sent to me in an unencrypted, plain-text e-mail.
OMFG! When I saw these two, I thought that in Toyota it is still 1993, not twenty years later! After Intel this second big, international company, out of two, which jobs-application system or procedure contains such enormous fuckups.
I can't find anything that could explain this. What is wrong? The bigger company you deal, the stupider IT team they hire or the more idiotic IT services provider they choose?
One day I found a job offer at Intel that I could apply for. So I decided to do it.
What I have found in apply form was nothing else than a pure madness and fuckup after fuckup. I though that "great Intel" will provide me with perfectly working job application system. Turned out, I was wrong. The bigger company you're dealing with the worst job application process you're about to go through.
This short post contains some fuckups I found in mobile Dropbox. Both in Android app and in mobile website version of dropbox.com.
Two of them are just tiny and many users will probably ignore them. But third one is a big mother fucker, which in certain situations may lead you to data lost. All these were found in Dropbox for Android 2.1.8, running on Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.1.1.
I've started to play Optime Software's Chess (website, Google Play, iTunes) on my Android device and I actually liked that game. I was happy to find out that they've released an iOS version for my iPad as well.
The dream has come to an end when I realized that this is one of the worst chess engines in the world, with many stupid errors and huge fuckups included.
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. And for over a year Gmail has been accepting this e-mail without any problems and it always landed in my Inbox. Today, for the first time, I found it in my SPAM folder. Why? Gmail informed me that its content is very similar to SPAM messages.
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.
When your session (cookie) is expired (because you have logged out of your Google account in some other tab), in most cases Google Calendar won't be able to handle such situation. Instead of logging you off automatically, it will keep bloating you with messages like "Cannot delete this item now, please try again within few minutes".
Pressing F5 and logging in again solves the problem. What a lame!
For several hours today, there were many fuckups in Google Wallet.
I can clearly see, that Google is introducing some serious changes to Google Wallet. But, why did they let themselves to run into situation, where current version works so badly?
I have exactly the same system installed on both my notebook and desktop computer -- Windows 7 Home Premium x64 Edition with Service Pack 1 and Polish Language Pack. On one of them (notebook) I can access external USB 80 GB 2,5 inch hard drive without any problems. On the other one (desktop) I can't access it at all.
Since Paint in Windows 7 was the only image editor that I had handy right at that moment and since it was updated to be quite good, yet basic image editor, I used it to do a small work on a really big (as for Paint) image.
Sadly, it turns out, that it can handle some basic operations on such big images, but it can't... open an image it just saved to disk!
Google Translate has a nifty feature of auto-detecting language based on source.
You can even automate this feature (call it directly from your browser's address bar or use it in search engines configuration). This makes things much quicker. The only problem is that sometimes Google Translate "translates" from English to... English!
Android 4.1 came down to my hands, so Android Fuckup Saga continues. Here, you'll find only fresh cookies. I'm not repeating old ones (which you can find here), since this is quite boring. But, yes, there are certain things wasted in 4.0 or even 2.3 and still not fixed up in 4.1. This article is the smallest one in Android Fuckup Saga, because even before finishing and publishing it, an Android 4.2 was released. Thus, most of the bugs (still not fixed in 4.2) went there.
...and why do I hate Google?
Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone is my first mobile device equipped with Android 4.0. I have never used that system before, so here is a bunch of my first-minute discovers and opinions. Keep in mind, that I'm using a "pure", Google-like Android 4.0. If you're using some modded version of Android or a vendor-specific version, provided by other producer than Samsung, you may not find some of these problems on your phone.
In this article you'll find some things you may need to consider before buying Canon Coolpix S3000 digital camera. I was using it for some longer time and it was very disappointing in certain areas. I wouldn't suggest purchasing it to anyone.
Gettin an unexpected error when decompressing a ZIP archive, using internal mechanism build into Windows XP (and newer) Windows Explorer (i.e. by clicking archive with right mouse button or dragging it somewhere and using proper option from menu to decompress)? Then you can be 99,9% sure that such archive is simply password-protected and encrypted in the same time. Windows can't handle such archives. But, in the same time, it is stupid enough to throw you some idiotic, pointless, meaningless errors instead of simply saying, that i does not operate on encrypted archives! What a low...
Year ago or so, I bought a paid Google Storage quota. Google -- of course without asking me, if I'm willing to do so -- set automatic renewal of my Google storage quota. Because I think what I think about automatic credit card operations, first thing I did after was to disable this (cancel renewal). To my extreme surprise this blocked me from manually renewing my subscription next year.
