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?

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.

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...

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. :)

Cloud Nine (클라우드나인) has a good americano for 3000. (Lattes 3800.) Also plenty of seating upstairs, and wifi at ~10 down / 28 up. Unfortunately the tabletops are pretty high, so may not be the best for long term laptop work.

Like a higher quality In-N-Out, but with prices reflecting that. (Wish In-N-out's fries were like the ones they had here.)

Really nice juicy, flavorful, great textured burger patty on the Wes Burger! All of that and the bun was spot on; wish there were more onion rings on mine is all. Also, I'd probably leave off the jalapenos and throw on some bacon next time if I'm feeling super indulgent. ;)

One of the best egg tarts in SF, if you can figure out when they're open and tolerate the lines.
