You can't add any kind of review to any Google Play app under Microsoft Edge, because a review form that initially looks like this:
turns into this after 2-3 seconds since opening:
And nothing helps. Refreshing etc. Always the same. Unless you're able to add full review and rating in less than 2 seconds you won't be able to add it at all.
And nobody gives a damn shit about this. Neither Microsoft nor Google.
Recent changes in Google Navigation design, look and feel can actually kill you (yes... literally!). You will be staring to the map more than to the road to try to see info that was shown clearly and undoubtedly before these pathetic updates. Or you will be forced to make last second (again, literally!) decisions.
Both road behaviours can lead you into a serious troubles and even kill you in WCS.
Unfortunately, Google employs too many morons and have users' opinions too deeply in the ass to understand it.
Because there aren't too many applications that can literally lead to your death then this particular example is surely worth awarding "Golden Fuckup of the Year 2019", if not "Golden Fuckup of the Decade".

Or am I missing something?
When winter ends and March is coming, Google Calendar fails completely on event repetition functionality for events that are repeated by the end of each month:
It doesn't have such a repetition value like "end of month". And Google Calendar's developers are morons and didn't figured out that event set to repeat on 30th or 29th of each month must appear on February 28 in each non-leap year.
When you open up settings screen in Google's Photos app, you'll see this:
That's pretty much everything about how Google care for you, what you may want or think. Zero! You're useless, mindless idiot. You cannot control, set or change anything. You must use this app (and everything from Google) in the exact way how Google is telling you.
This is the pure madness of Google. This is the pure madness of today's IT. This is the pure madness of the world we're living today in. We control nothing. Others tells us how to live.
Google was so nice to inform me that I am sharing my location with...
I tried to add missing business hours to POI that I know. Google refused:
Darkness... I can see darkness...
With the introduction of a new Gmail design you cannot access contacts quickly and you have to add yourself a shortcut to 9-dot menu (another stupidity by Google):
This will open the "new" Contacts screen in a separate tab.

It turns out that number of fuckups and wasted things in the new Google Calendar design gets bigger and bigger. Not only Google Morons introduced a lot of new shits, but also wasted something what was working pretty perfectly in previous ("old") version of Google Calendar!
Liked previous post? There's more to come!

A brand, new Google Calendar interface design has flourished recently.
Unfortunately, entire power of dev team was spared on changing look & feel. No significant changes in logic & functionality can be observed. Including, still absolute lack of drag-and-drop event copying. Again, Google Idiots failed to discover and develop this awfully obvious functionality!

There are two ways of deleting a message in Gmail. You can delete entire thread (by using Delete button) or just one message in it:
The second delete won't be replicated in mobile Gmail. You will see this message still appearing in given thread, just as you would ever delete it. You must purge Bin folder in order to get this message delete in mobile Gmail.
Another fuckup discovered in Android... and in mindless heads of Google dev fucks.
When you're using some shared computer (i.e. university, hotel, airport etc.) and you want to get access to your Google services, you have four options:
- use Guest / Incognito mode,
- login in Google Chrome browser,
- login to each service used separately (i.e. Gmail),
- login to Google account via https://myaccount.google.com/.
Since you're cleaver user, you will most likely use Ctrl+Shift+Delete to purge browser out of private data. Great!
If you selected second option above (i.e. login to Google) then now you're really screwd! Next time you wake up you'll see your account completely purged out of all your private data.

Looking for self-desctruction torpedos. Is it a single search result...

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?
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.

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!
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 say "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.

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.
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".

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!
