I'm having some struggles with Windows 10 after it performed an update. Everything is slow and I can't access tools like chkdsk, or boot to Windows media via USB or DVD. [more inside]
I got myself an older style bluetooth GPS receiver, to connect to my tablet in the car. The GPS puck runs on 2 AA batteries. Is there any way to make it run on USB instead? [more inside]
I need to track carbs, protein and fat. We cook meals almost exclusively from whole natural foods and MyFitnessPal is beyond torture to use. [more inside]
As Honda aficionados know, when your car has a mechanical difficulty and the lights go on, you don't have to pay the dealer $75 to run a computer check; you can do it yourself -- you just have to close a circuit, the relevant lights on the dashboard will flash on and off a certain number of times, and then you can look up the resultant number in a table to figure out what's wrong. This isn't working and I'd appreciate further advice. [more inside]
We text a lot at work and people are getting sore thumbs. They all have iphones and PCs with SIM-card receivers (plus twin cards that they use for data). I want them to be able to send, receive and respond to SMS on their computers, ideally with echoing on their phones so no information is lost between devices. Imessage or whatsapp etc aren't an option as the receiver may be on android or just as likely on a dumbphone. [more inside]
I want to make little applications to help my father run his small business and I'd like to make some personal applications for me to have fun/play with. I don't know much about programming, am not super math-y, and I'm having difficulty deciding what to learn. [more inside]
Just bought a Macbook Air without realizing it has half the storage space of my old laptop. Oops! What are my best options for storing the movies and tv shows that are taking up most of the room on my computer? [more inside]
If my wife and I wanted to watch first-run basic, 2nd tier and pay-cable shows in the highest quality possible, what service should we subscribe to? We're in Los Angeles. [more inside]
Is there a rule of thumb or formula by which I could figure out whether a camera with focal length F and resolution R at distance D would capture sufficient detail to identify people in images? [more inside]
Still sorting out our IT/media as per this question. One response was to mention getting an Nvidia Shield. I had only really heard about it but wasn't quite sure just what it is and if we can use it. After looking around the web, I still don't quite understand how it works and if it will work for us. [more inside]
Using Comcast (for home phone, TV and Internet) for some years but it's expensive. ATT bundled with the above three appears to give a big saving. What could possible go wrong? Your thoughts and advice needed please.
I can no longer enjoy music through my high-end headphones because the adapter cuts in and out, advances tracks, stops the music altogether, decides it's time to play the audio from an episode of "The Wire" etc. Besides taking this up with Apple, I'd like to hear insight from the forum. Thank you! [more inside]
I run a small 60-seat theatre, with a separate bar/lobby/reception area. I'd like a way to show a single camera feed of what's happening on stage, live (or with a minimal delay) to the television we have mounted in the lobby. This is not for security purposes, just to enhance our customer and front of house employee experience. Snowflake details inside. [more inside]
I want to have a dashboard to show up on my tv when I wake up everyday. It includes a google calendar, weather for the day, and potentially a number I have inputted through any means (google sheet, e-mail). How can I do this for barely any money? [more inside]
I'm hosting a Kentucky Derby party but I do not own a TV. Can I stream the race online? Better yet, is there a way to watch it through Roku? [more inside]

What is the best current way to get photos from film to a website? I assume I can have them developed at Costco or a drugstore and have the photos posted online or on a CD, but will the resolution be large enough to use in modern web design? Should I use a more professional service like Moon Photo or Dark Room?
For my Mom's birthday in December, I got her the jitterbug smartphone for seniors. Now it turns out that they no longer have any international service, and this stupid thing won't work in Canada, despite the fact that when I bought it I asked several times, and was assured that it would. What is my best course of action here? [more inside]
I need a simple, collaborative to-do app to replace Wunderlist. [more inside]
I've just got my first freelance job redesigning and optimizing a WordPress site. What should I do first and what are all the elements that need to be considered? [more inside]
