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.

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.

Windows treats ZIP files like folders, you say, right?
If you still believe in such bullshit then try to:
- open some ZIP file,
- select some or all files,
- press Ctrl+X to cut them,
- navigate to some destination folder and
- press Ctrl+V to paste copied files.
This simple operation can take hours on Windows!

Control Panel > Printers after you delete it many times, try to instead first double click it to find what is being printed on it?
