I have an idea that involves a lot of small (pocket) mirrors. So I want to go to a store that ideally has a lot of pocket mirrors of different sizes (shapes are not that important) on display, and play around with them before buying. Then after I find what I need, I'll buy a few. Problem is, I don't want to buy before browsing. Does anyone know of such store in NYC?

I have an old 1st generation iPhone that I left for dead two years ago, after it got wet and stopped working. I put it in a drawer and forgot about it. Eventually, I tried charging it, and it magically came back to life... But with a very peculiar problem: the on-screen image is a mirror image of what it should be. Everything is flipped horizontally, an exact mirror image... But the phone still expects the same touch input! For instance, to wake it from sleep, the slider appears flipped, as a right-to-left slider; but in order to actually wake it up, I have to slide my finger left-to-right. (my question after the jump) [more inside]

I've had a Canon 5D Mark II for about 2.5 years, and I've recently noticed some bad dust particle issues that are on the sensor or mirror, not the lens. Can someone recommend a good camera store in New York City that could do a good professional job of cleaning my sensor (and an idea of how much this will cost)? I've looked into cleaning kits, and I think I would rather have a professional do it. Thanks! [more inside]

I’ve been looking for the perfect two-mirror compact mirror for awhile now. It’d be a bonus if one mirror is magnifying. I keep finding some beautiful vintage
ones on Etsy, but they usually have a drawback – that one side contains crusty, decades-old makeup. Ick. If I were to buy a vintage compact, would it be possible to put a mirror in the second side? Perhaps a framer could do it?

In the shower this morning, I had an idea about backup support for disk drives. Since all my best inventions either have fatal fundamental flaws or have already been invented years ago by other people, has anybody already done this one for Linux? [more inside]

I'm trying to find part number(s) to repair a sideswiped passenger side mirror on a 2009 Ford Focus.
Most of the mirror is intact, so I'd like to replace only the piece that clips the mirror into the holder cavity. If this isn't possible, I'll grudgingly pony up for the whole mirror assembly.
Bonus question: is there a place to buy the part in Orlando, FL before Sunday?

I smashed my car's passenger side mirror against some scaffolding leading into my garage tonight. The mirror and plastic casing are still intact, but now dangling from a wire still attached to the car. I have to drive somewhere early tomorrow morning. What should I do until I can get to a garage? Duct tape it back in place? Will that damage my car's paint? Should I cut the wire and remove the mirror? TIA...

For a new iMac running Windows XP, I need to mirror/clone the display so it shows the same on the monitor and a projector. The graphics driver (for an ATI Mobiity Radeon HD 2600XT) doesn't support mirroring, but the iMac does it automatically. But the monitor and the projector have very different aspect ratios, and the same screen size gets applied to both. Is there a way to set two different screen sizes? There's nothing under the display preferences. Any third party software that would work?

Looking for a song a friend heard played at a club this time last year. The only thing he remembers about it is a lyric something like "Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the biggest QUEEN of them all?!" Anyone recognize it? Thanks in advance.

HELP me with this movie title PLEASE! As a child, I saw a black-and-white horror movie about a woman who lived in a house on top of a cliff. Her fiance fell off the cliff and died. She had a mirror at the end of a hallway. Whenever she looked at it, she was still young and beautiful. Many years later, she smashed the mirror and instantly aged and died. It gave me many nightmares back in the day (we had a full-length mirror at the end of a hall and I was terrified to look at it), but today I would love to see it again. After many unsuccessful Internet searches, I fear that y'all are my last hope. PLEASE HELP. Thanks!
