Is there any way to better manage books on a Kindle Paperwhite than jailbreaking the device? Or is jailbreaking reversible, or not that device-altering? [more inside]
I'm in the market for a new laptop, and I'm leaning towards something with enough GPU to play some nice games, like Civ 6 or Stellaris or XCom2 or Rocket League and other random games, but still supported well under Linux. What laptops and brands should I look at for reliable support? [more inside]
I will be changing email accounts and I would like to save my emails that I have on Office 365. How do I export these emails? thanks!
The receiver for the Home Theater In a Box system we bought several years ago is starting to glitch regularly. I just want to keep the speakers and replace the receiver with something small and simple, but I'm having trouble finding something that isn't 5" tall and $400+. [more inside]
I am trying to determine 1) Where to buy capacitors to replace the blown capacitors in my vintage Sansui AU-4400 stereo amplifier, 2) How to find modern day (or deadstock? is deadstock a thing with capacitors? don't laugh!) capacitors that are comparable and appropriate to the original capacitors I am replacing?

Last year, I did very well establishing and tracking habits on HabitBull in my iPhone but now I need a new habit tracker for Android. [more inside]
I want to use a second wifi router in my house to improve coverage (because the first wifi router -- also our Internet gateway -- is at one end of the house). Can I have the wired ports on the second device live, getting DHCP addresses from the first router? [more inside]
My wife paints high end figurative and portraiture paintings and will use digital images to help capture "tricky spots". It is not uncommon for her to work with the same image for hours at a time, without any adjustments. She has graduated from 11 X 17 prints, to her computer screen, and now we use an older 40" LED HDTV with an HDMI cable. [more inside]
I'm using a large and complicated set of equations to predict numerical data. Could this job be done instead by a neural network trained on the whole data set of input data and predicted data? [more inside]
As a child of Northern Virginia in the mid- to late- 1980s, I recall from many class and family trips to the Smithsonian the image of people carrying long white sticks with a telephone-like receiver on one end for audio tours. There were signs (with the symbol of the white stick) around the exhibits indicating where one could listen to audio about that exhibit. I think they were wireless, but I don't trust my flawed human memory. What was this technology? How did it work?
My girlfriend receives fairly regular anonymous calls - if answered, the caller breathes heavily and sometimes says her name. She's trying to block these, but somehow it seems that it's impossible to block all calls from withheld numbers on iPhone (Apple advised her to contact her phone provider), and when she did contact EE, she was told that her only option were to change provider or change number.

I want to buy an iPad Pro, but I'm torn between the 10.5 inch and 12.9 inch versions. If you've used one or better yet both -- is the extra screen real estate of the 12.9 inch worth the extra weight / possible awkwardness to hold? More specific questions inside. [more inside]
I recently found a Motorola WX416 flip phone seemingly locked to Canada's Chatr Wireless that I'd like to use with another carrier - is there a non-sketchy way to unlock it? The strict legality does not concern me (I can't imagine anyone cares at this point), but I'd like to avoid giving money to any of the scammy-looking "unlock my phone" sites out there.
I'm trying to re-activate an older-model Android phone that had been briefly lost (but subsequently found). I'm running into one stumbling block after another. [more inside]
Hi all, I've inherited a fairly horrible done site full kinks and NO ONE likes ModX, it's really a horrible CMS and not user friendly unless you got developer chops. That said, how easy are ModX to Wordpress migrations? I saw some cost around $1500 but unsure who is really proven in this space. Thanks
My iPhone has been having issues and just deleted my message history. However, I still have all of them on the Messages program on my Macbook. Is there a way to transfer them back to the phone? [more inside]
So I forgot my password to my Gmail account, and so I had to go through this process to recover it. Then I got a pass code to enter, and then another screen where I had to explain why my Gmail account belonged to me (something like that I forget). So I typed the reason "I forgot my password", and then it said a response will be sent back within 1-3 hours, and then they sent me another pass code to type a new password. I didn't know there was so much security for an unpaid Gmail account. Is the Google Accounts Team a group of actual people unlocking and analyzing Gmail accounts, or are these computers or bots programmed to monitor your email accounts? It's strange I had to type a reason to unlock my account.
I want to create an interactive walk-through of my college's admission processing steps for internal use. What's the best platform? And can you point to examples of this being done exceptionally well? [more inside]
I'm helping some family members divide property following a death. Is there a program I could use to generate randomized groupings of assets with each grouping having equal value? [more inside]
Can anyone provide links to news stories reporting any negative impacts experienced as a result of the use of smartphones (by either medical staff or patients/families) in a hospital/medical setting?
