The issue goes beyond just this one format, it's about #opendata itself, but don't let that stop you from paying attention because it's "just one" format, or because "I don't use Lidar" (yet).  As a  practising GIS Professional for 20+ years the process of manipulating data into, through and out of proprietary formats has been the most aggravating source of inefficiency and wasted time throughout. Good GIS analyses are *hard enough already* without adding unnecessary barriers.

I love my data conversion tools. GDAL/OGR, FME and friends have a permanent place in my toolbox. Nevertheless if I could go to work and for just one week not have to use one to get the real job done, I'd be a much happier man. :)

How do I exclude folders from Picasa Google+ Photos Desktop auto backup?

I have all my photos under E:\Pictures, and want Picasa to show and organize all of them, however there are some folders within that that I don't want or need backed up.

[Feature Request] from the lock screen, access phone dialler without unlocking phone. Dialler wouldn't show Contacts, just be able to dial phone numbers directly.

If PowerToggles isn't the right tool for this, please tell me what might be. Thanks!

It's done. Saved game data transfer for a kid is complete, but it wasn't pretty.

eh? what's this about? 

Older sibling used own AppleID to put some games on younger sibling's ipad (under 13yrs not allowed own account.) Sibling moves away. No more updates. No new apps. Time passes. Younger get's own AppleID, wants to migrate years of saved material to own Apple-self. Apple says "No. Start over from scratch."

!??!

As far as I'm concerned Apple owes me about a thousand dollars for time lost figuring this out. More importantly they owe this kid and millions of other kids a sincere apology. There's no (&^)(&%&(*^$% reason for the process to be this complicated. Nobody is trying to pirate anything. All they want is their own eff'n data on their own eff'n devices under their own eff'n names.

...however, griping and ranting aside: points for me, I win! Whooho!!

Dear Internet,

How can a person get per-app network data usage information on iOS (ipod touch)?

On my phone (nexus 5) I get a breakdown for mobile (cellular) or WiFi, for arbitrary dates, for specific apps, and foreground/background in those apps; see screenshots. (Only thing missing is being able to slice by WiFi connection, to see diff between home WiFi and others.)

Ever since the kids got iPods we're using up our internet bandwidth quota well before the end of the month. I want to identify which apps are causing problems and give them the boot, pronto.

The alternative of disabling internet access for the wunderkind is not going to make me popular!

So what are our options? Save this Dad from a horrible fate. Thanks.

Thunder in snow storm, that would be really neat if it's true and not just an example failed AI :-)  #ykstorm
