Wanted: a device that places continuous sounds (music, random noise, mp3s) when it is plugged in. Most devices these days require you to plug it in to the wall AND push a button to turn it on.
Goal: I want to make my place less attractive to daytime burglars. I live in a small apartment in a complex where everyone (literally) is at work during the day, and there are daytime burglars who use bump keys. I've already thought through door alarms, etc - but I'm looking for something passive and low effort by me. My idea is to buy a timer with random on/off, and connect a device to it that plays household-like noises.
But everything I can think of requires you to turn it on manually (probably for energy saving.) I'm not looking for a PC based solution - want an appliance like device. Like radios from the old days - but ideally with music I can preprogram.
What's a good CD player/radio similar in quality to the ones Bose
produces? [more inside]
My boyfriend's across-the-hall neighbor loves to talk on his CB radio at all hours. We don't love hearing it through every speaker in the apartment. What can we do? [more inside]
I feel stupid for wasting a question on this, but what's the best way to get my iPod to connect to the speakers in my 2005 Toyota Corolla? [more inside]
Why do my powered computer speakers pick up interference from my cellphone, and can I make them stop? [more inside]
