I'd like to move a folder, but at the destination there's already a folder with the same name. OneDrive asks me, if I want to rename folder being moved and keep both of them?

No, I don't want to rename it. I'd like the destination folder to be overwritten, but...

Well... Oh, shit! It's Microsoft!

Yes, they've fuck it up... again!

That's the reason of years-long Google policy of deploying new features and version as fast as possible, without even a tiny QA.

These idiots are so lame and stupid that are able to break up even the most core feature (sending emails) during one of latest releases and not even notice this!

The Xiaomi Mijia Roborock S50 is generally a great robotic vacuum cleaner. It works and sweeps just perfectly... unless it hit the doorstep.

Then, as you can see in the above hoovering map, it gets completely wako.

Ever dreamed about any support that solves your issues in a matter of seconds? No problemo... register to Strava paid service and... here you go:

Of course you understand that these issues are not actually solved. It's just that a sport service that claims to have 85 million users is using so buggy user support platform that it closes issues in the moment they're created.

Question: How to contact Strava then? Answer: You can't.

Question: What am I paying for then? Answer: Screw you!

There's some magical limit on number of segments that a single user can create. Hell only know why there's such limit and why total number of segments is limited per... 16 hours not per full day or 24 hours.

But the best part is a notification to let you know that you've passed the threshold:

You see it after you created a segment (and failed to do so)!

In other words, you can click-out your segment as a complete moron only to hit the wall that you failed to create it due to limits enforced on you by Strava.

Strava engineers are too stupid (or too ignorant) to warn you that creating new segment is pointless before you start creating it.

Of course it completely doesn't matter whether you are paying to Strava or not. This stupid limitation is enforced equally for both free users and paid subscribers.

For recording sport activities Strava is just great. Full of features with great community and cheap paid subscription.

The problem is that everything works only when... everything works. If anything starts malfunctioning, is missing or isn't working as you expected then you are totally screwed. Because this is yet another company that has a support beyond any critics or imagination. That totally doesn't give a shit on their customers!

Yes, even those paid ones!

We have XXI century for 21 years so far and we have (in Europe) GDPR for three years. Privacy is key concern for everyone using Internet today, but not in Google.

Because Google hires a complete ignorants and morons at deciding level, which completely doesn't understand the meaning of the word "privacy", you are forced to use your real name in every Google Service.

And hell can get cold, but you won't be able to change this.

Effect? Millions of people are changing their names in their Google Accounts to some fake ones. Congratulate, Google Mornos!

It may happen in a really remote area (with a really poor Internet coverage) that Google Find My Device service won't be able to locate your device. In such situation you will be forced into... agreeing Find My Device service's T&Cs... again.

And then... over and over again... each time you hit "Refresh":

A real idiot must be responsible for writing this part of code.

Who else, if not a complete moron, could figure out such idiotic thing like displaying T&Cs, if there is no connection to the device?

Who else, if not a complete moron, could failed to catch such thing at QA stage?

In sharp words, you cannot register EA.com account, if you are from Poland and/or you're using an email address with Polish top-level domain:

And now what, Trip? Do I really have to abandon my homeland and move to another country in order to register account in your company?

TeamViewer is phasing out their Google Chrome extension. To speed up this process, their are false-blocking their free license users with following message:

There are three stupid fuckups in action here.

First is that their moron developers aren't even able to display correct value of until when a lock will be in force.

Second that timeout mentioned in this message usually happens about 15-30 seconds after actually establishing connection.

And third fuckup is that when you turn off Chrome extension and immediately run full-featured client, you'll see that your account isn't actually blocked, because you have full, uninterrupted in anyway access to the other machines or users.

Turning off TeamViewer client and switching back to Chrome extension reveals that... you're again blocked.

They say that a good quality powerbank is much heavier than its cheap counterpart, because includes batteries and accumulators of a better quality and in a bigger number. Only thanks to this you can get true 10 000 mAh.

They say, the heavier it is the better it is. Well... not!

If you want a truly good quality powerbank then simply test it. Check, if:

  • It looses all its charge during just a single month (must last at least a year since charging)
  • It has problem charging just a half sized battery and looses all the charge trying to do so

If any of above is true, you don't even have to open it up to expect some piece of clay or otherwise creative solution inside.

There are two approaches in UX into naming of call-to-action buttons in popups:

  • name buttons in all popups using generic names -- OK and Cancel
  • use Cancel + title of dialog as a confirm or call-to-action button's title

Well... Atlassian / Jira picked up the second one. And here are the results:

And now, what... Mike and Scott? Should we... cancel this?

Amazon and its great Amazon Web Services (AWS) may not be fully prepared for fighting COVID-19, but they're surely prepared for a possibility of a... potential zombie invasion! Or for the fall of our entire civilization... Whatever comes first! :>

Hard to believe? Well... here is the proof.

Since past few months Google has a serious problems in aligning their services with notifications they're sending to their users. For example, I am constantly getting a warning emails that I am sharing my location 24 hour per day with some persons. And when, in response to that email, I am checking this feature in my mobile Google Maps, it turns out that my location sharing is turned off.

Which is an obvious truth (at least for me) in my case because I have never ever enabled constant location sharing to anyone and I am only sharing:

  • on even basis -- until I reach given place when navigating in Google Maps,
  • on time basis -- for up to 1 hour ahead

So I am constantly sharing my location only to Google, NSA and USA gov! :>

Today, however, Google has surprised me again, with its inability to do a simple math. My 30% storage left magically turned out into 70%.

Only a complete moron could design a shopping app in the way like Glovo is. You're warned that your shop supports pickup only at the latest stage of order. When you are trying to set a delivery address. And after you wasted half an hour on completing your order.

Right before, through entire half an hour of actually doing shopping, there was no warning and the shop it self was picked up from the list of groceries from which Glove does deliver.

But, there are way more fuckups in this pathetic app.

Steve Jobs' philosophy was that you should feel like a king or queen from the very first moment when you start opening a package that holds your newest Apple equipment. That is why he was a mad perfectionist about boxes, wrappings, sealings and overall design. And... the magic worked for all those past years. Opening each new Apple box was like a small, private Thanksgiving.

Now, Steve Jobs is long dead. And so is the magic that he brought to life. Now, Apple thinks you are a mindless pieces of shit and a complete moron.

For the first time in my life I was forced to reset Windows 10 back to its initial state.

I was amazed by the facts that:

  • such handy and useful feature was ever developed,
  • it allows you to reset Windows to roots while keeping most apps and settings untouched,
  • the list of apps I will be forced to install again was surprisingly short.

I was, of course, surprised that this list ends on "M" not around "Z", but I believed (at first) that this is just a pure coincidence. Turned out, I was wrong.

...in Google Chrome. Finally ships with the newest feature...

Finally it can save passwords as a serie of stars! Fuck, yes! :>

No, Virginia, this user did not used all-stars as his password. He used a regular password with all the necessary characters, as defined by privacy policy in the given websiste. It was just a morons at Google Chrome dev team who developed such a crap.

I had some issues with my latest Booking.com's booking. There were certain things missing in reality against offer, but I managed to settle it out with the property owner itself. She agreed to refund me a 10% of the price that I paid. She decided to process this refund through Booking.com. That's where the horror started.

In short, sharp words -- while only about thirty seconds was needed to pay for this booking, thirty days was not enough to process a refund! I am more than certain that (after years of uninterrupted cooperation) I will never use booking.com again.

This is what happens if you employ QA-morons that tests your software on production environments. And you pay them that little that they don't even understand the fuckup, they're stepping into! :>

And mummy was always saying... never test anything on prod! :>
