Is a phablet good enough for reading e-books?

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]

My Vizio 55" TV doesn't turn on unless unplugged!

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?

Can the office network dept intercept cellular signal?

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?)

Yes I feel ridiculous

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!

Please recommend sub $300 android phone with great camera. Verizon

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]

Help Me End the Tyranny of Big Phones

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.

Sprint Samsung S7 Troubles

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]

"Oh God, How I Miss TV!”

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]

What is the name of this Javascript code reminding visitors to sleep?

There was a bit of Javascript featured on a site like LifeHacker a few months back that would place a black page before a website at night telling visitors that their sleep was more important than whatever the contents of this website were. The page had a link if you wanted to bypass the gate. The application was the first project the team had worked on and their mission statement was that they developed web apps to help improve the world. Does anyone know what I'm referring to? Thanks!
