How can I batch edit the time and timezone meta info of my photos in an album? (Feature request?)

I also need this feature. For whatever reason several of my photos have a file date in the year 2030. Not sure if that happened in Windows or in G+. But either way, I've got a bunch of photo where it'd be great if I could just mass update the year back to 2002.

Has anyone else had GPS problems with a Nexus 4? Specifically, the accuracy has turned to garbage as of the past few weeks it seems. It appears to always/use the cell network for location now when I open Maps/navigate/etc, unless I turn off and back on GPS in my settings. This goes back to high precision, until I leave the app or turn off the screen; the notification at the top will continue to claim it's set by GPS for maybe a minute despite the increased inaccuracy, before disappearing. I've confirmed that location is from the cell network w/ the GPS Essentials app during that time frame as well.

This is super annoying...Is my phone damaged (hopefully the warranty would cover it if so), or was there some horrible update not too long ago that messed up GPS big time?

my wife's N4 seems to be behaving less than smoothly as well

dear Google, your setup of a new phone for a user using 2-factor auth sucks. Why do you prevent handling of SMSes when signing up for the first time? It is a PITA to go dig up a backup code from a phone, and you could have at least told me during setup or browser auth that if I use 2-factor, I should skip this account setup for now in order to receive the SMS, and then go to the settings to re-connect my account.

The variation is remarkable. In this one, iPhone 4s, Lumia 800, Galaxy Nexus, and Nexus S.

While finally tossing out an old Cr-48 shipping box the other day, I discovered the safety notice tucked away that I hadn't seen way back when I got the netbook. Looks like the copy editor had a lot of fun writing it up. :)

Bah, why must Google Photos bury the Albums link under More??

And why don't they have a Move option when selecting photos in #AutoBackup? That would make photo organization so much simpler, sigh...

What is causing Google to intercept phone calls and route them to my laptop? That is very obnoxious, and something that started only recently...grr.

Yes I'd call that a bug. It's not even an option anywhere that I can see. Although it doesn't happen all the time, it has happend at least twice now. Well ok, I could add my normal cell # as a new phone to Voice, but I haven't...

Is there a way to make a Google My Maps available offline in Android? Caching maps is great, but to be able to pair it with actual landmarks would make it perfect!

Is there a way to change your user agent in Android Chrome Beta? Specifically, I want to be able to view the 'dekstop version' of a page, which the ICS default browser does allow.

If you only have time to hit up one place for your pineapple cake fix, make Chia Te your goto spot (but they do have a variety of other fun fruit and nut flavors). This older bakery is often regarded as #1 for a reason, and expect long lines to show for it in the lead up to Chinese New Year. I'm docking a star because during those popular shopping days, it can sometimes feel like a crazy scramble to sift over all the flavors to fill your own box of cakes for yourself or as gifts, while competing against the other throngs of last minute buyers. Pay attention to the expiry dates on the packages; they can range from ~1-4 weeks! (I personally like the flavor here a little more than the younger upstart Sunny Hills, but you should try both and see which you like best. The latter store uses a more local pineapple, while their packaging and store have a trendier look and feel if you're mostly sightseeing.)
