Mexico Border Crossing: please explain to me, an East Coaster, the viability of taking a cab from the San Diego airport, rolling my suitcase across the border, and taking a Mexican cab to Ensenada. It sounds insane to me, but people from Arizona insist this is a fine way to travel. [more inside]
I am in the UK and have a UK amazon account. My recipient is in the US. How should I send her books? The books are available on the US website - can I save money and shipping by having them sent from the US? if so how can I do that from my UK amazon account? Thanks, I fail at googling this!
I'm about to finish my PhD this coming Spring in the U.S., and although the funding I received was specifically for creating "practitioners" I'd actually like to sharpen my research and publication skills via a post-doc. The thing is, most researchers in my area are in the U.K. How do I introduce myself to them? [more inside]
My husband and I are traveling to London later this week for a 10-day trip (yay!). For part of the trip I'm going to be at a conference, and he will be doing some work things, so we need to be able to get in touch with each other, either via voice calls or text. I'm trying to figure out the cheapest way to accomplish this. [more inside]

I'm in the UK and want to download a free app that is only available through the US iTunes/App Store. I have memberships of both the UK and US iTunes stores, but unfortunately the credit card on my US account has expired. When it comes to the point at which I download the app (on either the computer or the phone) it asks for an updated credit card. If I could convince someone to "lend" me their iTunes login details for a short while, even if there was no money on their card, would this work? Anyone tried this or willing to help?
I'm considering ordering some relatively expensive gear online from the US, however the suppliers will only ship domestically. Being that I live in Australia, this is a problem. Does anyone know of some reliable proxy operators who will provide a US address for delivery, and then ship internationally? Is this worth the risk/expense?
