I do not have any voicemails, Android. SERIOUSLY.

I have a Nexus 5 running Android 6.01. I have a notification that will not clear that says I have 5 voicemails. I have zero voicemails. The internet is positively lousy with advice on how to fix this. Not a drop of it works. HALP.

Have FM transmitters for ipods/phones improved in the past 10 years?

I've tried a few in that time, nothing seems to have improved. But I'm old, hardly tech savvy. Want something to use around an apartment/house. Willing to spend $100.

How do I check the cartridge alignment on my turntable?

I have a Toshiba SR-F770 turntable, and I'd like to check the cartridge alignment for the first time, but I don't have a copy of the manual and the online sites offering it for download seem sketchy. I read this article but there are a few things I don't understand. [more inside]

wireless transmitter receiver set for home studio headphones?

I currently use a nice set of wired headphones attached to my audio interface in my home studio. The wire is a pain especially when playing guitar or drums. What's the best/cheapest way to get a transmitter attached to my audio interface and a receiver plugged into my existing headphones? I understand that the receiver will likely be battery operated but if the transmitter could be plugged into a power source that'd be a bonus. Specific product recommendations especially welcome. Thanks!

Which cheap Android phone/plan should I use, to work for Amazon Flex?

I got my onboarding notice for Amazon Flex. I need to be able to take this job, as I'm barely scraping by, and this pays about double what I'm currently making. Stumbling block: it requires an Android phone, I have an iPhone. I need to get an Android, but I'm going to have to borrow money to get one. So I need to know how I can get the cheapest phone that will work, along with a cheap data plan. [more inside]

Android App for Filming One-a-Day Stop Motion?

So I was thinking about doing one of those take-one-picture-a-day time lapse videos, but I wanted to also make it a stop motion video too. I'm kind of hoping that there's an Android app that would help me do this. So I'm going to describe what I think the perfect features would be for such a project, and hopefully someone will tell me if there's anything even remotely close to this. [more inside]

What is 'bloatware', why should I care, and how do I fix it?

After some research I have decided to buy this laptop, which has great specs for the price - but multiple reviews (like this one) say that while it's a good computer, it's "full of bloatware, which takes time (or a fresh Windows installation) to clean up." I barely even know what that means, much less how to actually go about doing it. [more inside]

Good Japanese Pre-Paid SIM Card?

Any Japan hands have any recommendations for a good prepaid SIM card? I'll be transiting through Narita and proceeding directly to Itami (Osaka Municipal Airport). If there is an affordable data plan that would be great although I will be purchasing mobile internet (LTE, Wimax or 4G) hotspot and it will be shared with members of my family. [more inside]

Third Party Web Apps to Unfollow/Follow Users on Instagram & Twitter?

My company's been using Crowdfire to follow people who follow similar organizations, then unfollow them if they don't follow back. I hate how sketchy and janky it is, plus the price. Any alternatives out there that allow you to unfollow/follow users on Instagram and Twitter? [more inside]

Not quite "sharing economy" but what?

I just read about the Copia app, that connects markets and restaurants with "left over" food to shelters and organizations that feed people in need. This is the best example of my question. What is it called when you have X (service, tangible) and are using technology to share it with people in need of X? And vice versa (you need X and use technology to find it). Is there anyone writing about this and/or studying this particular use of technology? [more inside]

MS Office Reporting Service

Before writing this from scratch I'd like to know if something already exists. The need is for a server that accepts data, document type and an optional template id, and returns an MS Office doc (powerpoint or excel) containing the data, in the selected template. [more inside]

Best video camera (GoPro?) for the field

Hi, I am in charge of procuring a camera for a team who will be traveling to isolated/rural/developing parts of the world for development work. Think Peace Corps but short term (2 weeks at a time). The team will have sporadic access to electricity, and I'm assuming zero access to wifi. [more inside]
