comment See Amazon shipment cost without disclosing personal information
Are you sure they don't just require your address? What country are you in and which amazon site are you visiting? (amazon.com?)

comment Select Email Notifications on My USPS
You could write a client-side mail filter, but I'm sure that's not what you're asking.

comment How does Google Maps see my hardware details (and decides to disable 3D view)?
browserspy.dk can help you see what information your computer makes available to websites.

comment Tweets don't show up in people's notifications tab
I've had people start following me in 2078 and 1878, so twitter's code is far from perfect (and/or their messing with time travel means your mention notifications were delivered in the far past or will be delivered in the far future)

comment Twitter trends without hashtags
I think twitter just looks at the words being used most frequently in tweets (ignoring 'a', 'the', 'I', etc). I'm pretty sure Twitter was doing trend stuff even before hashtags were popular.

comment Why does IFTTT dislike this RSS feed?
I should've updated this earlier, but it turns out ifttt/superfeedr dislike feeds with only one item.

comment Show planned highways at all zoom levels in Google Maps
Remember, you can use OSM's API to get this data without having to look at a map at all. That's the big advantage to using OSM instead of google maps (in my mind).

comment Show planned highways at all zoom levels in Google Maps
This doesn't answer your question, but have you tried openstreetmap.org to see if they have this data?

comment Does Google Shopping offer search in local stores?
There should be an "available nearby" checkbox, although, from experience, I can tell you that it rarely works. So, yes, Google offers it, but no, they don't do a good job of finding local products.

comment How does Google Books detect unusual traffic from a computer?
Your IP address is probably the major criteria. Things like User-Agent, lack of cookies/session id, etc, are probably secondary criteria. Using torproject.org may help

comment View PayPal history prior to 2011
If you go to "download history" (click on the Statements down arrow and select "download"), you can get this data 2 years at a time. I never noticed until now that the online history now stops at 11/20/2011 (3 year limit), that must be something new.

The recipe I created above is now working properly (but doesn't really answer your question)
