My business has a Google Plus page here:,-156.2851497,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xef284bc45ffaaf1e!8m2!3d20.915941!4d-156.282961   I'm receiving notices from Google that Google Plus "Personal accounts" or "consumer accounts" will be de-activated on April 2.  To my knowledge, I only have one Google Plus page, and it has always been classified by Google as "Google My Business".   I'd like to know if whether my page is a personal Google Plus account or whether it falls under a different category which won't be affected on April 2.
Outlook 2010 IMAP to Gmail not working...
I set Outlook 2010 IMAP to Gmail March 1 2018 for a just one year old...
System was working perfectly until about 3 days ago...we do not know why it stopped...

Went thru the various attempts to connect to Gmail...would not connect...bad pw...
1.  I changed the pw in Gmail webmail...logged out and logged back in with new pw...I have a known good pw...
2. Attempted to log in again...I would get error message "email server rejected your login...
3.  I changed IMAP and SMTP ports...SSL/TLS and various combinations...nothing is working...
4. Ran scanpst and reported minor errors...repaired them...
5. Double checked Gmail settings and IMAP is ON....logged out and back in with new pw and it is good...
6. Double checked Outlook settings...everything matches up...double checked username spelling...double checked everything...
7.Googled "Outlook 2010 not pop gmail" various responses...nada...
8.Found this link ....went thru that process...nada...
9. Deleted email account in Outlook thinking profile is corrupted...
10. Now I cannot recreat the account in Outlook because Outlook will not connect up with Gmail...
11. Logged into Gmail webmail and turned IMAP off and turned POP on...
11. Tried to recreate the account but this time with POP settings rather than joy...

I have no idea what is going on...something is wrong within …
Ok all the Google heads, dev guys, etc out there, Im looking for better ways to group my tabs.  I usually have around 80 tabs open in Chrome at work.  We're a Google shop.  Ive noticed that I have several groups that could go together, e.g. 8 Google docs, 7 of our portal, bunch of Google Sheets, etc.  Is there a better way to stay organized?  Thank you techs, Mark88tabs
We are a non-profit that uses G Suite (Gmail, Google Calendar, etc...).  I've received a request from HR to download a copy of an employee's emails and chats.  Easy to do for your own account.  G Suite only allows delegated access to another user's mailbox so you can't download a copy of their data.  Any suggestions other than Google Vault (or resetting the user's password to access their account)?  We would have to pay for this service and as I said, we're a non-profit.

Thank for any suggestions!
Dear Experts

We have deployed customized business application which is developed using sugar crm and it is hosted on premises. The data that we store is confidential, we have challenges in achieving certain dashboards and understood from developers that they can deliver those but the server requires internet to fetch the javascript library from google server. The library is fetched on each page load and browser renders the chart. The URL from where the library is fetched is 
The chart we integrated with Sugar CRM only downloads a javascript library on each page loads and does not send any data to any server(According to Google). Please refer to this link:
Please suggest If we go with this integration will our data is not exposed to google, we do not suspect google but as per our internal policy we should ensure the data is not exposed to external network, please suggest. Thanks in advance.
Somehow, when I go to, I now get this.

How do I fix that?

I'm using Firefox, I don't have time to try other browsers.

Is there a way (without adding a gsuite account to Outlook) so that calendar appoints created within Outlook under a non GSuite account can replicate and showup in Google Calendar?  I don't know if google calendar can be synced to Outlook but not bidirectional?

I know this seems like a crazy question but I am being asked if its done.  

So to try and clear this up is currently configured in Outlook as a profile.   The user wants to add calendar appointments and have them sync to her gsuite calendar without having anything from her gmail calendar replicate back to her outlook calendar kinda one way.   So if she adds an entry in Outlooks Calendar it appears on her google calendar but nothing added on Googles calendar appears in her outlook calendar...  

I don't think this can be done but I thought I would check.
I have noticed anonymous callers ask me by my name which surprised me.  When I asked them, some didn't say but 2 said that my number was in google along with my name:
  • How is this possible?
  • How can I check if true?
  • Is my address there also?
  • How can I get rid of my phone number from those databases?
On my Lenovo Windows 10 I got an error "message prius/tesla/leaf/panamera application stopped working"

Hello Experts,

I have issue with an external client, he is using
a laptop with Cisco anyconnect vpn client and he would
usually connect to the vpn and would be able to browse the
internet and also access internal resources, shares and sites.

Today he connected from home and he was not able to browse anything,
I checked his laptop remotely and I was not able to ping google or resolve
any DNS names. To get him going I gave him default gateway IP in his VPN connection
but I am not suppose to do that.

My quest is why when he connects to vpN, the DNS stops.
I tried to replicate the issue using my hotspot and on my laptop
but i did not get the same symptons, my VPN does not give me GATEWAY ip and I
am able to browse plus access the internal resource.

I am certain this issue is local to his internet connection
at home.Please do let me know if anyone has any suggestions.

Hi, I have an android tablet, it's old and can't be upgraded. I'm afraid maybe it's a goner. I was trying to get to Google Play store, and I keep seeing this.
Screenshot_2019-02-25-14-47-29.png and also Unfortunately Google Play Store has stopped.

I've gone to all apps, cleared the cache, deleted the data, and rebooted a few times, but still this keeps happening. This is on Android v 4.4.4. Kernel v 3.10.0.
I have the codes below to get full address from Geo API google. It works fine
but now I need to get address, city, state, and zip. And I have no idea how to get them in c#.
I read the following article as well but it is in javascript 

        public static string GetAddress(string latitude, string longitude)
            string locationName = "";
            string url = string.Format("{0},{1}&sensor=false&key=AIzaSydsfBzalHtsdfsadfsadfasdfdsafTxZaIVQrePIK_Lfbv1QqPC_Xr5c", latitude, longitude);          
            XElement xml = XElement.Load(url);
            if (xml.Element("status").Value == "OK")
                locationName = string.Format("{0}", xml.Element("result").Element("formatted_address").Value);                             
                locationName = xml.Element("status").ToString();
            return locationName;

Open in new window
