Multi user license KineMaster for iPhone

Hello hive mind, I am looking for a multi user license for the video editing app KineMaster for iPhone. It seems that our android brother and can easily get such a multi user license, but I’m having trouble finding similar for iPhone. If anyone has any ideas that would be great. This is a workplace and we don’t want to have to share iTunes logins or family sharing

I have my own 1-800# What do I do with it?

I purchased a 1-844 number for my business. Big scheme of things, I don't really need it. A strong majority of my business id done via email, but was able to get a number using the name of my company, so I picked it up. I was told that the number has to be at least 'parked' somewhere and I just can't hold onto it for months or years and do nothing with it. Ideally, I'd like to have it be able to forward to my cell phone, with the option to turn on/off the forwarding at will. (mainly business hours).....When the forwarding is turned off, i want the number to go to a dedicated voice mail system for my business only and to not share my personal greeting /voicemail on my cell.. can anyone recommend any services... The Free'er, the better....As of now, it is not imperative to my business dealings, but when it is viable, I'd love to have something in place. Thanks

How to fix battery corrosion in Walkman battery pack?

I opened up my Walkman Pro (WM-D6C) and found that, however long ago I'd last used it, a) I'd left batteries in the battery pack, and b) they corroded. I cleaned it up a bit and tried new batteries, but no luck. (The unit's otherwise functional, as it works with the AC adapter) Here are some photos of the unit: https://imgur.com/a/zBoOyfq [more inside]

Twitter bot that regularly posts screenshots of a given webpage

I'd like to create a bot that will, at regular intervals, take screenshots of a particular web page and then post those screenshots to Twitter. I'm tech-savvy but not a coder, so I'm looking for something as simple and off-the-shelf as possible, if it exists. Thanks!

my laptop preferences are becoming non-mainstream, why? and what to do?

New laptops are way better on the technical specs (battery, CPU power, RAM, storage, connectivity, etc.). But the keyboards feel terrible, the screens are short and wide, things break all the time, and nothing can be serviced or upgraded by the user. Manufacturers are clearly optimizing for someone else. But who? And what will I do when my laptop breaks? [more inside]

mac built in mic - panned right?

i have a 12 inch macbook that has dual microphones on the right side of the laptop. they're literally on the side, where the headphone jack is, not on the flat surface with the keyboard. when i record through that mic my voice sounds dead center to me, but since the mics are slightly to the right, shouldn't i be hearing my voice panned slightly right? i feel like this is a really dumb question. am i just not hearing it or is there some reason the audio is in the center even though the mic is to my right?

Help my make very boring recordings.

I'm trying to record the ambient sound of my walking using a smartphone, and I'm looking for a microphone to do so. I want a mic that is small enough that I can clip it onto my body that will not only record the sound of my footsteps, but will also capture as much ambient noise (distant dogs barking, any conversations that might happen, etc.). I would also like to do this recording using my smartphone. [more inside]

Can I use IFTTT to get a text when I get a particular email?

I think this should be possible with IFTTT, but I can't find it anywhere. Sometimes I'm waiting for an email reply from a particular person or waiting for an email with a particular keyword, but I'm not in front of my computer and not actively checking on my phone. I'd like to be able to get a text or some other kind of notification when the email arrives. (I don't want to get a notification if I get *any* email, because I get way too much.) If this is possible, is it safe to link my email to IFTTT? Is there some other way to do this with Gmail?

Talk to me about "smart" TVs. More specifically, how to make them dumb?

I'm in the market for a new TV, something 55 inches with all the 4Ks and HDTVs and Dolbys and the true blacks and the local dimming and HDRs and all that. But all TVs now are "smart" and I do not want that. I have some questions. [more inside]
