A friend recently filmed a very nice 15 minutes of me performing, and I'd like to move it to my webpage as part of my permanent electronic portfolio/resume/cv. Feel free to talk to me as if I'm five when you explain how to do this. It's a wordpress.
I'm planning to buy an Amazon Fire (for mostly reading Kindle e-books) and, in three months, renew my smartphone. Then I saw a lady with a Samsung "phablet" (I guess a Galaxy E7) and the lightbulb turned on! [more inside]
Hola Mefi!, My 55 inch Vizio suddenly stopped turning on recently. The pain in the butt thing is that the only way to get it back on is to unplug it for ~90 minutes. Then it'll work for a few days until it doesn't. Rinse/repeat. I'm having trouble tracking down repair guides besides the standard backlight/flashlight test. Anyone else had this issue? Is there a great TV repair forum I don't know about somewhere?

At the office, they put in a Wilson Panel Antenna (looks like this one) for a stronger cell phone signal indoors (for Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile I think they said). My question is, can they (the network people at the office) intercept the signal such that they could see employee phone calls, texting, and web traffic?)
The light switch inside our bedroom corresponds to a wall sconce over our bed. My wife hates the lighting from it and would prefer lamps. What's the best way to get the switch to control plugged-in lamps? [more inside]
My significant other likes taking pictures of her creations in the kitchen, and she'd like to branch out into video.I have a DSLR, but am unsure how to approach the lighting setup. [more inside]

I'm trying to wire up our Burning Man bikes with rechargeable USB batteries as opposed to bulky, wasteful, PITA AA cell batteries. I'm having trouble finding something that will output the right voltage. Halp? [more inside]
My husband and I had a really bad fight some time ago. We have our differences politically, and some of it concerned arguing over political things the other person posted on their timeline. In a fit of anger, I unfriended my husband and removed my link to him in the family/relationships section. Anyway, we've long since made up and wish to restore our facebook connection. How do I refriend/restore our facebook relationship without it showing up as "news" for other people's timelines. The last thing I want is a bunch of "likes" at the fact that we are married or friends again, or for our inlaws to see we weren't facebook friends. Help!
Need new phone as mine is shot. Android is a must. Under $300 total preferably cheaper. Android CDMA network. But most importantly, it needs to have a great camera--not one that you have to manually configure to get good shots-- I just want a point and click. I'm too old and dumb to adjust this and that forever. [more inside]
I need a new phone. Everything I see is too big. So far, only the iPhone SE is on my list. Anything out there comparable to the SE? (U.S. use). Big phones allow doing things I do not do with a phone. I just want the thing to fit comfortably in my jean's pocket.
Would love any advice on how to deal with this situation: two months into a new S7 and the phone stopped making and receiving call. 2 hours with phone tech support and no luck. "Go into the shop and they will help you" I was told. Upon arrival i was told that it would be $75 dollars to assess or swap phones. After some arguing they agreed to try a hard reset. No luck. They said you can deal directly with Samsung if you dont want to pay us 75$ to do so. [more inside]
We don't have cable or receive OTA signals. We'd like to watch some TV (NetFlix, YouTube, network streaming). We have WiFi, a Samsung SmartTV(450, 2010?), a Toshiba TV, a Wii, an old MacBook w/ dying monitor (6,1 OS X 10.6.8), an old iPod Touch (4th Gen?), and an iPhone 5. Please suggest setups and options using the resources we have or cheap peripherals (<$100) that would make our TVing satisfying. [more inside]
I currently have a Sonos Play:1 and would like it to be a bit more mobile. I was thinking that utilizing some sort of portable power supply would be the best solution, but wasn't sure what I would need. [more inside]
