How can I get music from my computer to play all over my house? [more inside]
Does there exist a monochrome phone (one whose display gets clearer the brighter the sun gets) which can/does organize texts by person and/or conversation? I'd also be hoping for that other standard feature of monochrome phones, which is a couple of weeks between recharges.
My Nexus 4 is getting a bit long in the tooth, looking for something similar but with updated specs. I've gone through the G1, G2, and Nexus 4, and would just hop right on up to the Nexus 5, but I get the feeling that options have opened up in the current + last gen of devices. My list of prioritized features inside. [more inside]
My nine year old has declared that he's interested in technology and wants to work on a project this summer. I'm not completely sure where this comes from, since his exposure to technology has mainly been netflix and mindcraft. I'd love to find a fun project we could work on together. [more inside]
I want to start a few seconds video recording prompted by a gun blast. Plan is to attach a USB camera to a spotting scope and have my Mac start recording a few seconds of video the moment a shot is fired. The start and stop of the Video recording can be done with Automator ad/or Apple script. I am looking for an app or hardware solution to prompt the recording. It could be an application that starts a script once a sound exceeds a certain level. Perhaps even better a motion sensor that will sense the shock in the rifle stock. Thanks for your help. Rogier
My new job uses Salesforce.com and competition to uncover the good stuff, even from the semi-discarded "Shark Tank" leads and contacts. Teach me your tricks for sorting leads and contacts to find potential sales. What are the best filters to add when creating views to screen out junk? What are the best ways to make sure that if an old lead starts to come back from the dead (say, with fresh Pardot activity) that I get there first? I am ready to learn, sensei. Show me the way.

I am starting a job doing social justice organizing and I will be doing a substantial amount of communications work, including drafting emails, updating website content, designing newsletters and flyers, and using social media (twitter and facebook).

How do I delete multiple (several thousand) custom lists in excel all at once? I can delete them individually, but if I did that I would end up wasting a ton of time. [more inside]
My camera, which is a Kodak EasyShare C183 and which I've had since Christmas 2011, is malfunctioning. Whenever I turn it on, it turns itself off within a few seconds. It's indicating that it's a battery issue, but it isn't actually a battery issue because I put new ones in when it first started happening and it didn't help. Is there anything I can do to fix it? Alternatively, is there any way I can have it repaired for less than what it would cost to buy a new camera?

I've got a Arris SB6141 cable modem. When I hardline into it, I get over 100 Mbps down and about 20 Mbps up. When I connect it to a Linksys N-Ultra WRT160N broadband router, I get 0.5 Mbps down and 12 (?!) Mbps up. What gives, and how can I get more speed through my router?

I'm sick of the mess of usb and power cables all over my living room and specifically on the side table next to my spot on the couch. What solutions have you come up with to deal with the ugliness of an abundance of frequently used electronics that you want to have handy that passes a reasonable adult living room decor bar?

I like my Apple Watch so far. But the #1 reason I got it was to take it with me on long bike rides so I could see speed/distance/time at a glance. To my chagrin, after a short time out the cycling app quits, so when I glance down I see the watch face. And because I'm riding I can't swipe around to get back to the app. Surely there's a way to fix this? Or is the OS design that foolish?
For a while now, whenever I (or any program) tries to use cmd.exe, it will cause my computer to slow down to a crawl and partially freeze (the mouse still works). What could be causing this and how can I fix it? [more inside]
For a friend: I have a large covered trailer I use to haul around thousands of dollars worth of lawn care equipment for my landscaping business. I (and other locals in my line of work) have had equipment stolen from me, sometimes right in the middle of the day while working on a job. Recently, some expensive equipment has been stolen out of my equipment trailer. I work alone, and so I can't just have someone hang around the truck to guard it. And so now I turn to technology.

Around 1999-2001 (maybe earlier or later) my grandfather ordered a "PC". It wasn't a computer in the traditional sense, but basically an Internet terminal. [more inside]
