Dear Fucking Google.

I've been trying to email this to you, but your support site doesn't contain a simple-ass email address so I can send you the following email I sent everyone else I using to deal with this problem :
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello, all.

About two weeks ago my android  phone stopped tracking GPS properly.

I would use Runkeeper for my tracking and it would STOP after about
4-5 minutes.

When I used Google maps to track my car as I drove, the icon no longer
moved smoothly along the map as I was driving.

I have contacted both Samsung Support and Runkeeper about this.  The
only word of advice I could get was to re install everything (wipe out
Runkeeper and Maps) and to factory reset my phone if that didn't work.

I think the problem is related to Google maps. Why?

I wound up resetting my phone and everything went back to working properly.

Then, this afternoon, while I was driving and tracking my position
with GPS, I noticed that I wasn't logged in to Google Maps.

The second I logged in my tracking was totally screwed.

The second I logged out my GPS tracking went back to normal.

Thoughts?

Maybe sometimes you just need an email a guy can sit down and read.

suck it.

I search "comically large things" and this shows up.

hey Google,

Your maps application went from fantastic to totally sucking.

Then I figured out that if I put the phone into Airplane Mode, it ignores the cell towers and works amazing again.

This is fine for runs, not so much for driving. Why don't you fix this?  GPS works great, so please don't tie your app to call towers that are owned by companies that are intentionally paying as little as possible to keep them working just enough to keep people from complaining and still paying their gougealicious contracts.

Or is this a marketing thing?  Did you actually let marketers hijack an otherwise sweet program for yet another buck?  If so...  SHAME ON YOU.

GPS normally updates your position every 8-10 seconds or so when using Runkeeper. My issue is that after roughly four and a half minutes it stops updating. After much reading and asking Runkeeper staff and Samsung for help with the GPS issue, I tried uninstalling Runkeeper and getting rid of all ...

Hey Netflix, I wanted to rewatch an episode of House Of Cards tonight. Your service through my Samsung SmartTV kept refusing to download the episode. I'm watching the episode now: It was faster to go download it with bittorrent and transfer the file to my NAS drive and then watch it than wait for your service to work.

And no, no Netflix. Do not even come back with "Its your TV." YOU go work that shit out with Samsung. 
You let them blare "NETFLIX READY" All over the box.

Nice place in the heart of Vegas with good gaming and a great pool.

I really like this place. Good tap selection, great food (get the poutine!) nice atmosphere. Only problem is it's smack in the middle of the definition of "suburban hell." It IS worth the drive for a decent meal, though.

Not much more than a dirt lot, really. Also, as of Aug 2105, the mailbox itself was gone.

The newly remodeled ElCo isn't much different from its old self. Still a good bargain, still full of the older crowd playing slots, still full of low limit fun to be had. Drinks are cheap and plentiful, and the remodeled rooms are pretty darn nice. The "Cabana Tower" across the street is pretty sweet, and just far enough away from the casino.

YES you want to stop by here. Belly Buns are fantastic, as were the spring rolls. Some nice custom cocktails on the menu, too. On top of all that, fantastic service.

Nice little bar, but actually a BIG place. Lots of nifty little seating areas. As far as the food goes, you only need to know one word: PEROGIES. Go get some.

In dire need of a remodel of all the rooms. If you get room 263, beware that: A) Your window looks directly into a HVAC unit on the roof B) The room smells HORRIBLE. Its not "this used to be a smoking room." Its "Something crawled in from the roof and peed on the carpet." The staff does what they can with what they are given to work with. Its a nice little hotel, it just needs a lot of TLC to bring it up to being worth whet they charge. Once I got my room changed the next morning, things were better. the pool/patio area was well tended to, its just the darn old rooms.
