Seeing that there's no convenient way of doing this provided by Google, I've created a tiny online app for export of your starred locations: http://gexport.somee.com/ It's very primitive, but it does the job. (credits to endolith for the idea of implementation)

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 ...

Go to the Settings page (link at top right of Gmail page), Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab....

"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 ...

You can try going to http://m.facebook.com/ and click on "Messages". Select a person to view the history, and click on "See Older Messages" once. Notice that &start= part in the URL, that's the number of received and sent messages minus 7. Notice the &page_size=7 part in the URL.

In the Google Knol: Changing your gmail username or email address, it says: If you absolutely need the old label structure, the only solution is to use an IMAP client to connect to both the old and new account and copy over folders/labels.

You can then star those in the new account. Takes some work, but it does work. I did this when I moved my Reader from my GMail account to Google Apps. As far as I know, Trends is ...

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.

You can use an email client (e.g. Thunderbird) to download all your messages via POP - this will leave them online, but you will also have a local copy. This local copy can be backed up, which I do, or can be uploaded to another account. At least this worked for moving TO gmail, not sure if it will work for using a different provider.

Tough one: - This feature was repeatedly requested on Google's Forum, but no answer from Google - On Google's Data Liberation Front there is only the import/export solution - There is no official API, only reverse engineered ones for Python, C# or F# and I couldn't find any program built on these libraries that could do such a thing. I hope somebody can ...
