Unhelpful search results. I'm trying to find a Hangouts client for my phone. Searching for "hangouts" returns the app "WeChat", which doesn't appear to accept a Hangouts account. It also returns "Viber", which doesn't list Hangouts in the description (I haven't tested it; I downloaded it, but the very first thing it did was demand my phone number so I deleted it).

I'm on iOS. I'm sick and tired of the countless bugs in the official client; they don't seem to do any testing with Bluetooth keyboards so I find myself having to report Bluetooth bugs every few versions. There's also currently a frustrating bug where you can set your preferred browser in Hangouts' own settings, but it doesn't actually respect this setting and just uses its own internal browser every time (which doesn't seem to support cookies and therefore doesn't work with several sites).

 

In short, yes, it's something that really annoys me! :)

 

Edit: And my phone just went "pling!" in a quiet office because Hangouts has decided to turn its sounds back on by itself.

@Skinnystaff Skinny mobile app often saying 'authorisation has expired' even though it hasn't.

Google searches getting ruined by findata and pinterest!! 

 

These websites are evil, my search for a projector in NZ yields a full page of pinterest and findata links of which none  are useful at all!!!  And for some weird reason, they don't even include my search term so why does google link to them????

 

I wonder if there is some way to exclude sites from google search by default!

No kidding. Pinterest doesn't even let you see anything useful without logging in, and they regularly nuke any accounts from Bugmenot. Why do people even post things on that site in the first place?!

Because they are sheep following other sheep.

The new FULL SCREEN uncloseable apps in some (free) iOS apps recently... extremely irritating and have no relevance to the actual app or my personal interests, so absolutely useless anyway!

Looking forward to Takeaways for tea......what a disappointment!

 

Carl's Jr (Bush Inn, Christchurch)... missed part of the order (The plain fries).

 

The CrissCut fries worked out @ $1 each!

 

The burgers were barely warm. (Microwave helped) (Do they still actually put sauce in them - or is that just for the photos?)

 

Overall rating is barely 5/10!

 

I won't be in a hurry to have Carl's Jr again!

 

(The "better half" picked it up on the way home - and yes the receipt shows the missing item) 

 

...and yes I did fill out their form on their website.

People still doing fireworks at midnight last night. Are people really not over it yet?

They were epic when they opened and I was a 'regular' but they have been going downhill ever since. I haven't been to one in over a year since they're no longer even on my potential fast food radar.

Yup - they certainly are going downhill! Shame, as they had burgers that I liked, and are actually the closest to my home. 

 

Probably won't even hear back from them either.
