The official Facebook app for Android asks for too many permissions, so I'm looking for an alternative. Any recommendations? How can I turn a 1TB external hard drive into networked storage that could be accessed from anywhere, not just within my network? Is there a way to easily stream my content directly from my Time Capsule to the Apple TV and cut out the middle man? Any ideas for what I can do with my decade-old 8.5lb laptop with a Pentium 4 processor, 1GB RAM, 40GB HDD and Windows XP? Is there a super-simple online calendar I can convince my luddite wife to use? Maybe if there's a "smartboard" calendar that hangs on a wall and syncs with Google Calendar? I'm looking for an app that will regulate the volume output on my android phone. Preferably something with integration for Tasker. You know when you go into the gym and you see those big buckets of combs in the weird blue Barbasol liquid? What's the proper thing to do with the comb after you've used it? Set it aside, toss it back, throw it out? Question about AT&T's Mobile Share Value plan: Yesterday while looking over my AT&T Bill, the site said I was eligible to switch to the Mobile Share Value plan. Problem is, I assumed I was still under contract since I re-upped to get a subsidized iPhone 5 18 months ago when it came out. What happened here? Am I still under contract, and if so when will the contract expire? I don't think I broke any rules? I recently upgraded my HTPC from Windows XP to 8. VLC for Windows 8 seems to be buggy as hell. Can anyone recommend music/video players that don't stink? Or any other essentials I should have? How does one get motivated to get started in the face of an overwhelming workload? (At work it's fine - it's the personal/educational projects that are suffering.) Read more...
