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.

I search "comically large things" and this shows up.
GreatBigStuff is a brand name and registered trademark associated with and describes a unique line of products that are oversized replicas of everyday items.

The product line is ever growing (pun intended). The GreatBigStuff headquarters is currently located in Middletown, DE, occupyi...

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.

When I moved to Las Vegas and needed a local State Farm agent, Eric James was a not just a random choice but an incredibly lucky one as well. Mr James and his associates have always been helpful, courteous, and most importantly HONEST when taking care of my insurance needs. Great office, and a pleasure to do business with.

A Dive Bar that defines all other dive bars. The Double Down is a no-bullshit drinkers bar. Live bands on the weekends, many of them good, a few are great. Special appearances from local musicians might not be a big deal in most towns, but Las Vegas is home to some of the most amazing people in the business, and they love the chance to break away from doing the same old thing from their shows. Leave your attitude at home, grab a fistful of cash (they recently started taking credit cards, but that's for tourists) and get ready to get good and drunk!
