What's the current consensus on the best way to remote into my home pc? Is it still TeamViewer? I had heard there were security issues with it - or was that LogMeIn.

I use Chrome Remote Desktop, works pretty well for that if you don't mind using Chrome.

Can I no longersort Youtube subscriptions by most recent activity?

I used to be able to do it A-Z or by recent activity, but now I can't find that option anywhere. It used to be a "toggle" next to the top of subscriptions.

I have 100+ subscriptions and I would really prefer to not have them alphabetically.

I only see them by activity, in that I see all the stuff added 'today' and then yesterday then last week and so on.

Even that would be better than alphabetically. It is almost useless like that.

On the web, the only option for me now is by activity (which I prefer). On mobile (iOS) it is now defaulting to sorting by new activity, but still has the option to show alphabetically.

So I noticed that in the Android app on my phone I could sort by activity....and then when I went to the web today it was sorted by activity....

So it is some setting tied to my user account but not one that I can change in Chrome. That is some bad programming. But I now have them sorted how I would prefer.

Wow, confirmed on iOS too. Go to the web and subs are sorted by activity. Open the mobile app and change sort to alphabetical. Refresh the web, and it's now sorted alphabetically. No way I can see to switch it back on the web.

That's some ridiculously bad design there Google.

Where did the customize notifications go in google calendar? When I go to edit a reminder or task there is no option to set notifications or edit when they occur. Between this and getting rid of Inbox Google has been killing my workflow.
