No guaranteed, faithful audit trail is given by Google Docs.

Revisions Deleted by Upgrade: Google Docs' last official upgrade did not save, nor migrate, old Revision History to their new version, resulting in total ...

The IMAP interface to Gmail now provides access to chat messages. If you had already set up Gmail IMAP, then you only have to enable the IMAP visibility for the "Chat" label in the Gmail settings (in the "Label" tab, a "show in IMAP" tick box is available for each label). Update: this method works for Google Chat, but NOT for Hangouts, only conversations of ...

Here's how: Go to the Google+ version of your site ( http://www.google.com/+ ). On the left hand side, click on the "Photos" icon. Find and click on the album with the video you want to download.

I guess the only way to accomplish this is to install the (free) Evernote desktop client, select all notes and choose "Export..." from the File menu. There are different export formats available: Evernote (.enex), Web Site (.html) and Web Archive (.mht).
Easiest process was to go to Google Bookmarks, copy each of the starred items, and paste it to a note or Word doc. Log out of the Google account and log into the new Google account. Go to Google Maps. Paste each link from your doc into Google maps one by one and star each item as you go. Took me 5 minutes to do the 20 or so that I had. Very easy.
"It looks like the main difference is two-way integration: instead of just scraping data from Wikipedia dumps to produce a structured database (like Freebase and dbpedia do), it's going to store the canonical version of some of the information there, and pull from it to populate the infoboxes. One of the motivations seems to be to keep the data in sync ...

Google Takeout I understand your frustration, especially since everyone is telling you Picasa's only purpose is for sharing. Although it has a huge emphases on that, it is only the primary location for storing ones personal photos with Google's service. You were very close in your searches when you talked about Google's Data Liberation. There is in fact a ...

I figured out a way to export your starred locations. Go to your account settings Click on the section titled "Data Tools" Click Select data to download "Create an Archive" Check "Bookmarks" "Create Archive" Download and you're done! You'll get an HTML file with all the locations as addresses that are linked to the Google Maps.
I'm going to explain it as simply as I can. Picasa Web Album or Youtube, both are Photo/Video Sharing Service, where the main motive is the distribution of content among viewers, which can be done without the option to download. Providing the feature to download a content always has a copyright issue as they'll be giving you the complete control over that ...
It should appear below the progress bar, to the right, after the archive is created. Apparently, it doesn't show if the archive is empty. I get the same result for +1s.

I just thought that I would give a little update to the code. I tried log2log but I think that software is obsolete so don't bother. I needed to save my logs but unfortunately the code displayed does not work and I assume its because Meebo has made several changes since then. Anyways, I made a few edits and it worked perfectly. The steps are still the same ...
I have found many many requests for this feature to be implemented natively, but have not seen Meebo officially release anything and Meebo has officially released a webpage for downloading chat logs. It works until Meebo Messenger closes on July 11, 2012. However Also, I have found this: http://blog.meebo.com/?p=2348#comment-1140779 A friend Says: ...
There is no explicit way of exporting your Google Chat logs through a Google provided function but there are a number of different alternative methods which seem to be available.
