Getting Siri in my car

My car doesn’t have a Siri button. I want a Siri button in my car. Are there any Bluetooth, wireless Siri buttons out there I’m not seeing? (I’ve seen this thread.) I used to have a couple (Flic, CodaWheel or something), but they no longer work. Any other ideas for facilitating easy Siri access in my car? Hey Siri doesn’t work reliably, especially when music or podcasts are on. (iPhone X.)

I want a screen that hangs on my wall and shows my phone notifications.

I want to spend less time looking at my phone. I think it would help if my phone behaved more like an old-fashioned wall-mounted phone. To this end, I want a screen that is mounted on my wall and displays incoming phone notifications. [more inside]

'Browse my movie theaters' - does this exist?

Is there a site or app that will let me browse all showtimes for all movie theaters within only my own selected list of theaters? I'm looking for a one-stop way to browse all NYC indie theaters that accept Moviepass, while excluding non-indie ones and non-Moviepass-accepting ones. [more inside]

Help Me Hear, But Not See - streaming music edition

I like listening to streaming music services, but when I put it through the FireTV the tv (linked to a sound bar & sub woofer) the image on the tv screen is such a bummer. Is there some way to make the screen go dark or show screensaver images? I realize I can use bluetooth speakers w/ my phone, and I've done this. The problem w/ bluetooth is I can't have music playing softly in the background while listening to a podcast on my phone. [more inside]

How to archive old text messages?

I'd like to pull all the text messages I have off an iPhone 5c and save them to a PC, so that the phone has more free data but I don't lose the messages. Is this possible?

Know any iPad photo apps that can add borders without cropping?

I’m looking for an iPad photo app that can add a simple border (frame) to an image without losing any information (i.e. without cropping), for printing purposes. Snapseed and Photoshop Express both crop the photo when you add a border, and though there are messy workarounds for both, neither fit the bill because I need to standardise the process to always get the same border width. Any ideas? Thanks guys!

Vizio Smart TV showing signs of burn-in on screen. Time for new TV?

3 year old Vizio 50" smart TV has burn in, mostly on right side of screen. Not always but some times. One game of Freecell showed up, faintly, for a week, as have other windows that'd been left open. Currently the Freecell image is *almost* gone but that's happened before with other things, come and go. [more inside]

I need a good Home IT debug/best practices guide!

Hey all, I have a relatively simple home IT setup- An AC1750 router and a Motorola Surfboard Cable Modem. Nothing fancy, although a lot of devices connect to them - 2 iPads, 2 phones, a PS4, a Nintendo Switch, Roku, Hue, Alexa etc. Things have been hunky dory until the last week or two. I'm suddenly getting frequent service outages where the Roku rapidly connects and disconnects. And while I'd love to blame Spectrum (lol), I've also been having issues streaming from Plex or using the Roku remote. [more inside]

How can I find text in the message of an email (Apple Mail or Outlook)?

I would like to be able to look for a bit of text (e.g., "XXYY") in the subject OR the message of an incoming email, and flag it to myself somehow. I have found ways to apply rules in Apple Mail to the text of the incoming subject, but not the body of the email. I could also implement it in Outlook if it's a possibility there.

Away mode for Wink 2 Hub?

I want to set up an "away mode" for my Wink 2 Hub, so that it will do a number of actions when neither my nor my partner's phones are on our home wifi network (router is an Apple Airport Extreme, if it matters, and one phone is on iOS while the other is Android). Crucially, it needs to run only when *both* phones are offline, not just one or the other. I haven't been able to figure out how to do this using the Wink app or IFTTT. Any ideas?

Piano Tutor apps for iPad that support USB/MIDI Keyboards?

I've been meaning to learn keyboard for ages. I have a 49 Key USB MIDI Keyboard, and it works in various music apps and GarageBand if I plug it into my iPad via the Lightning to USB A adapter in the Camera Connection Kit. Are there any piano lesson apps for iPad that also support MIDI keyboards over USB?
