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.

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.

Today's evening, after my father's seventieth birthday party, the world has ended for me. I opened up Google Maps to find a road back home and all I saw was...

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?

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?

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!

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.
