When you log into a Google site like GMail, Google also logs you into all your various accounts Google accounts - such as YouTube.

However a website can only set and ...

It looks like under an older Google Profiles system (such as Buzz) it was possible to have a pretty URL like you've found above. Google axed it as a default however, in part because it effectively exposed users' username / email addresses. The best article I could find on the topic was this blog post, which mentions: if you had selected a vanity URL for ...

Once a file is uploaded can others in my organization see the files and download them as they need to?

As Al mentioned, it's just a gimmick plus some JavaScript trickery that shows the 'real-time' increase - in practice, the amount is a fixed space which gets increased at regular intervals. This Stack Overflow answer explains how the JS bit works This is the code in charge of it. Looks like it is based on a time computation being mapped to a number of ...

The reason for this is that, for a number of security reasons, browsers have limited capability to interact with the operating system's clipboard. If you think about it, this makes sense as the content within a browser window/tab runs as an isolated sandboxed environment to prevent possible malicious interaction with the OS. As such, alternatives have to ...

You say you use Google App Engine API. Does that also mean you've used Apps to buy a domain at some stage? If so, then your transaction went through Checkout, which has now turned into Wallet. The last time I went into Wallet (to check that my credit card there was still valid, prior to a domain I'd purchased auto-renewing), I was asked to confirm my ...

try clicking this link, it may fix your problem: http://www.google.com/trends/?hl=en What happens is this: Google saves a state of your "current language" in their servers. They probably use this to customize ads for you. This "?hl=en" parameter tells Google you prefer a different language (English in this example). It works across all their services.

The Google Drive web app gets around a security feature on the browser. Without this security feature, a script on any web page you open could grab sensitive data from your clipboard. When you right-click in Google Drive, the script on that page shows the menu, and when you select "Paste" from that menu it calls another function in the script that attempts ...

This must have changed as I was just able to change my user name on the Google Voice Help Forum. Here is what I did.

I think your display name may be specific to each Forum so you might have to ...

Some things to keep in mind: Tracking subdomains, as referencing in links provided by Whitingx, is a different matter than tracking subdirectories within your website, and requires changes to your GA tracking code.

The vaguely named "Gmail" access is pretty much giving the application unlimited IMAP/SMTP access to your account (it provides an OAuth login which merely replaces giving it your password).
