Hiring an Android Developer

I'm interested in hiring a developer to build a native Android app. Before anyone gets nervous, I am a fairly experienced in dealing with technical people and I already built the iPhone version of this app myself. Because of time constraints I am choosing not to build the Android myself, there would be too much of a learning curve because I have never done it before. I would be able to provide the developer a designed comp of every single screen. [more inside]

Falling asleep to an audiobook

I've read myself to sleep all my life, and have been using various e-readers for over ten years (currently using FBreader on a Nexus 5). Books and e-readers have manual page-turning, so picking up from where I fell asleep is trivial. Is there an audio reader app that can use manual paging? [more inside]

Please help me transfer my itunes library to my ipod

My old laptop died, and I purchased a new laptop. I was able to recover the purchased songs from my itunes account, and they show up on my new laptop in my itunes library. However, my ipod won't load songs from my itunes library. It will only load the songs I have imported by cd, not the purchases from itunes. Can you help me? [more inside]

Moving phone service to Ting - What is 2G?

We are looking at moving to Ting. This will drop my husband's phone down from 3G to 2G. I don't know what that means. Is it capacity and, if so, for what? Speed? I just have no idea. He uses his phone primarily for texting. Phone calls and data usage happen but are pretty rare. Any help understanding this is much appreciated.

Can I get these movies from iTunes to a Kindle Fire?

I bought some bluray+DVD+download discs of some movies for my kids. When we're traveling, it's nice for them to be able to watch on their tablet - a Kindle Fire - but when I try to use the download code that came with the DVDs, it only gives the option to download to iTunes. Is there a way to get these onto a Kindle Fire? [more inside]

looking for supreme comfort, discrete headphones for office use

My ears are very sensitive to pressure, weight, and motion. Also, they are slightly different sizes. I'm looking for some IEMs that do not tug, pull, push, wiggle, rattle, or anything else. The option to have different-sized tips would be useful - so, most earbuds are out. Probably, something that has a plastic hook that goes around the back of the ear would be good - but it also can't be too cumbersome because I wear glasses. Finally, they need to look semi-professional - so, no over-the-head straps, headphones are right out, nothing with skulls or diamonds or silly bling. please help!

cats and glass dot com

I'm looking for a domain name that I can use for pictures of glass pieces I made and my cats. Possibly I will eventually sell glass stuff (not cats), but that is not an immediate plan. I am totally out of ideas that do not include my name.

External microphone for shooting video on an iPhone?

Suggest a microphone to plug into my iPhone 5S to improve the audio of my iPhone videos? Lavalier preferred, but a little shotgun thingie would be ok too. Hoping to achieve improved voice quality with less roomtone, and I need the audio file to record right onto the video file- I don't want to sync it in post. Thanks!

Note-taking Practices for Meetings

I've mostly worked in organizations without frequent meetings or the need for formal minutes. I'm curious about how this works in other types of offices. Do people generally take notes on their phones or tablets during meetings or are those types of gadgets even allowed? Is there a designated note-taker or stenographer? I prefer taking notes on paper but I'm curious about how technology is changing expectations in this regard. Are there any particular apps that are ideal for taking minutes?
