I've been complaining about it for years, but the most recent round of "updates" to the iOS built-in Podcasts app has finally broken this camel's back. I need a new podcatcher, but I realize I have no idea what's out there beyond Apple's walled garden. Details inside. [more inside]
Is there any way to add "featured image" capability to a self-hosted Wordpress site without CSS? Is there really no plug-in? [more inside]
I have used Yahoo mail almost since its inception, and used to be quite happy with it. But between ads which hold everything else up while they take too much time to load, and constant urging to change back to the new version (which performed even worse for me), I have had it with the post-Verizon Yahoo. I'm not willing to pay $50 + $20 a month for the ad-free service. So what are my other options? [more inside]
I would like an email app for my Android phone where I can view both my yahoo and gmail emails in a non-threaded style. I am fine paying for it. [more inside]
My father has a 2nd generation ipad mini that he cannot use because he has forgotten the password, and Apple customer support has been no assistance. Please help me help him use his device. [more inside]
I migrated my photos from Apple Photos to Google Photos and hate it. I can't migrate back, so now my photos are in multiple places. All I want is 1) all my photos in one place where 2) I can share to Facebook and 3) I can upload to Shutterfly. My next step is to hire a teenager, but I am hoping I don't have to. [more inside]
Where can I find underrepresented or up-and-coming games that I can post onto my YouTube channel that thousands of others aren't already playing? [more inside]
My phone data plan has been mysteriously eaten for ~3 months, despite no change in browsing habits. I disabled image loading in Firefox and that helped some with data usage and also helped me ID a culprit: unwanted video buffering. How do I stop video, especially HTML5 video, from buffering? Note: I am not interested in youtube only hacks, or Facebook's stop autoplay. The buffering data use is the injury, the autoplay is the insult. [more inside]
I have a feeling I haven't seen this because it doesn't exist, and perhaps it CAN'T exist! But here it is: [more inside]
In a fit of alcohol-induced brazen networking, I sent a Facebook friend request to someone I've been wanting to connect with. Now, much more sober, we are not connected, and I see the default "Add Friend" button on their profile instead of the "Friendship Request Sent" icon that usually shows up when a request has been sent but neither accepted nor rejected. I know one possible explanation is that the request was already received and rejected -- but what if I actually never pressed the button? [more inside]
I made an app that renders PDFs more readable on your phone. It also lets you browse the latest articles on the arXiv, specific to your field. This app has a very unusually / non-discoverable name, and so basically no users (according to iTunes Connect, Google Play stores. Except me, I think it's great!). [more inside]
For a long time I've been mulling a campaign to rename a local street and (possibly) a state county. I'd start with the street. It also has a park associated with it which I'd like renamed but feel like the street needs to come first. My hesitation is the negative attention that seems to come with these endeavors and I'm wondering if there are ways to protect myself. [more inside]
I just got a new computer and its CPU is described as "four core, eight thread." Can you give me a simple layperson's explanation of what that means? I don't know anything about computer architecture, and all of the Google results seem to assume a base knowledge that I don't have.
How do I keep a responsive web page from sliding around horizontally on mobile devices? [more inside]
I may or may not have been volunteered to help setup wifi for the neighborhood pool/clubhouse, halp me. [more inside]
What is the likely process and software for creating Google Developer videos like this one? It's basically a slideshow, but with lots of builds and transitions, and some subtle sound effects, perfectly synchronised to the audio. They also have a speaker overlaid on top. [more inside]
During my time using Windows XP I often used winamp to play music, along with a specific Visualization plugin. Please help me track it down. [more inside]
Hi All, Our Google Analytics stopped working this Monday at exactly 00:00 -- completely flat. I ran a GA debugger and tag assistant and they both show that tracking code is placed correctly. Here's what we did 1. We first updated Google Analytics from http to https on View Settings (3 column) 2. Day later when we saw that GA stopped working, we also updated Property Settings (2nd column) from http to https Did this make it stop working? I thought https was best practice for setting up GA but perhaps it was done incorrectly. How do I remedy this so GA works again? Thanks for your help! [more inside]
How can I use Chrome or Firefox's advanced about:config settings to tweak how many pixels/lines are shown for each time you do a full-screen scroll with the spacebar? I'd love to shorten the scroll by about 5% of the window height, but tried everything and can't seem to get it to work (or are there extensions to do this?) [more inside]
Looking for websites (especially Tumblr sites) that focus on contemporary urban day-in-the-life and street photography. There are a ton of them for places like NYC, Tokyo, Paris, etc. and I follow some of those. But what I'm really looking for are Tumblrs of cities and places that may be difficult for a monolingual English speaker to find. Places like: Lagos, Sao Paulo, Mumbai, Beijing, Karachi, Kuala Lumpur, Guangzhou... Please share your favorites!
