I have two Google Apps accounts, one linked to my Google Voice. I have my Contacts synced to both accounts.

Hangouts can't find most of my Google Contacts in either account from any of the web-based Hangouts (Gmail, Chrome app, Chrome extension, Hangouts website). To make a call I must cut-and-paste the number into the Hangouts dialer.

That is, I type the Contact's last name, but Hangouts does not find it: "No results matching <last_name>" even though the Contact is in Google Contacts. Google Voice in google.com/voice finds all Contacts. Google Voice in Gmail (in Firefox because GV it's now disabled in Chrome) finds all Contacts. Hangouts Android app finds all Contacts.

This is an ancient problem that Google hasn't fixed, but I got thinking that perhaps someone has found a workaround.

+Mayur Kamat  Do you know that Hangouts on web (all 3: Gmail, Chrome app, Chrome extension) does not find most contacts in Google Contacts? This has been reported hundreds of times in the Hangouts Help Forum, and submitted as feedback even more times. Now that you have abandoned Google Voice and Goggle Talk, you should consider fixing this major, inexcusable, ancient bug. If you don't know about it, you may consider either reorganizing your group or changing your career.

+Richard Koffler Climate control is just part of the technology necessary for terraforming. As a species we must eventually move beyond this rock or perish.

… is from Sheldon Richman’s October 11th Future of Freedom Foundation column, “The Housing-Financial Meltdown Revisited.”

[N]o matter how much the government controls the economic system, any problem will be blamed on whatever small zone of freedom remains.

To paraphrase Thatcher "Socialism is great till it runs out of other people's money".    Hollande is realizing this now.

Excelente. Muy auténtico. El cebiche y el chupe de camarones son de primera. (Translation for the gringos in the audience: Excellent. Very authentic. The cebiche and the chupe de camarones are first-rate.)
