Took a seemingly bricked Samsung Galaxy Nexus to one of those repair shops. They "unbricked" it, but the thing seems useless. No Play Store on it, you can't set up a Google account... details inside. The shop says they don't know how to undo what they did. A way to salvage? [more inside]

I just got a Nexus 4. I want to sell my Galaxy Nexus. How do I delete my stuff and make it safe to sell? I did a factory reset but of the 16gb it tells me only 5.6 are free (this is with no apps on it) and says it still has photos and videos and audio (though I can't see that stuff in the gallery and other apps). Thanks! [more inside]
Would the Chromebook be right for me as a writing device? I'm looking to replace my old netbook I use for writing with something more swish and it looks to fit the bill, however I'm not a Google Docs user - how easy is it to transition to from using OpenOffice/Word? How well does the local storage/offline working option work? How easy is it to export Word files and how well does formatting carry over? Is there anything else i need to know?

I have a samsung galaxy s3 and he has a samsung galaxy note. What we want is sowhen one of us opens his or her diary, we see a combined diary showing his and my items in the same view. We don't need to edit each other's diaries necessarily, we just want to know when a shared workspace has been booked by the other so wedont double book it. How should we do this, s calendar doesnt seem to do it, is there a google calendar way of doing it perhaps?
How do I convert ics files? Since my work computer was upgraded to Office 2010 64-bit, I've been unable to sync my Outlook schedule with my Samsung phone (which uses Samsung New PC Studio). It will still sync with my Google calendar though. Both Outlook and Google only seem to export .ics files. NPS seems to import .nsf, .dif, .mdb and .vcs. I found a free .ics to .vcs converter online but it seems to convert a single appointment from what I've verified is a complete export of my calendar. How can I convert the files or otherwise get the phone calendar synced?
I am looking for advice on finding the best smart phone deals. I have an old clamshell phone. I need very little for myself...not even texting though want the occasional use of apps. I am currently moving to Denver and may switch from AT&T though my wireless and phones are bundled and very cheap ($90/mo for our two cheap phones and wireless for home though that would change *a lot* with upgrades?). I am really confused on what the hell is a decent deal. I don't make many calls whatsoever but my wife will be calling family or perhaps using Face Time/Messaging via an iPhone if we can afford. We don't need the newest and best phones but am not sure where to start for packaging costs, especially as we may do wireless separate once we get to Denver. Any thoughts on how you would go about this, where you would buy a phone (new or refurb), deals that have worked for you (assuming you don't use the phone for a lot but still want the options of some of the apps). iPhone? Samsung? Razr? Carriers recommendations? I want to go as low $ as possible but not make a stupid decision out of pinching the hell out of the pennies.

So Samsung has been ordered to pay Apple ONE BILLION DOLLARS. Let's assume this is final, and ignores appeal, etc. How would this actually happen? I can't see it being a big check delivered on stage. Bank transfer? Scheduled payments over the course of XX years? (Freightcars loaded with pennies delivered in spite?)

Allshare Error Message filter: We have recently purchased a Samsung Smart Blu-Ray Player. The big attraction for us was that it would enable us to play shows downloaded from the Internet via the Allshare program. However, after I downloaded Allshare and tried to run it, I received the following error: "The Allshare shared server has shut down. It will restart." I would close the message, and it would come back again and again. [more inside]
