2. Google Latitude photos do just the same. They are not updating...
Anyboy experiencing similar problems, or have a fix?
The photos seem to update, but slower in my contacts (People). But they don't update in the Google-based apps, which is wierd.

I can't speak for Latitude, but for Talk it does not sync with your contact photos. You should only see the photo that your Talk contact has uploaded for themselves. For example...if you tap the empty photo icon for yourself, you can choose a photo from your albums. The photo you choose will be seen by whoever you use Talk with. In reverse, you will only see a photo of one of your Talk contacts if they have chosen a picture for themselves. Thats why when you click on the empty photo box of one of your contacts nothing happens. Hope you understood that! Give it a try with one of your Talk contacts and see if it works. That's how mine is set up.
