comment How to add/remove an individual song from device in May 2013 update Google Play Music app?
Took my device a while to get the update. The "Delete" menu item just moved the track to the Trash. It did what I immediately wanted—removing the track from the phone—but it had a pretty big side effect that could only be counteracted via the Play Music site.

comment How to add/remove an individual song from device in May 2013 update Google Play Music app?
Caching during playback does work. However, swiping on the song either in search results or in an album list appears to do nothing. (I tried in "On Device" music, so it should have been removed from the list if deleted.)

comment Turn off cell standby?
Just tested my Nexus 4 and it worked. I swear it wouldn't let me do that before. I definitely had to tweak a setting on one of the older phones to make BT work with Airplane Mode on.

comment Turn off cell standby?
Most Android devices I've owned don't allow Bluetooth in Airplane Mode. (That's a LG Optimus V, a Motorola Triumph, and a LG Nexus 4.)

comment How is a Nexus device “provisioned” when you buy it from Google?
Ryan Conrad said pretty much exactly what I was thinking. Since the device contacts Google during setup, it would be trivial for it to retrieve the desired account name. I considered having my Nexus 4 provisioned in this manner, then concluded that it was of no practical benefit because I still have to do the harder task of generating and entering a new Application-specific Password.

comment Google Now and pronouncing/recognising contact names
Gmail on the desktop supports this in the new contacts UI. Choose "Phonetic name" from the "Add" menu at the bottom of the contact details.
