My laptop's been having a bit of trouble for the last two weeks or so. Things that normally boot up within a second now takes up to ten seconds. E.g. I'd click on an icon (say, firefox) and it would take about five seconds for the hover-over animation to show, then another five for the program to start. More deets below. [more inside]

I have an older (2006-ish?) tv with one HDMI port. I have three things (Roku, DVD player, and cable box) I would like to watch via the tv. I've been using an HDMI splitter that requires manual switching (I have to go click it to transfer between the cables), and it's in the process of active dying. I would love to replace it with something that (a) works and (b) does not require that I get up to click it when I switch from Hulu to cable. I'd love to avoid another remote control as well, but it's not a dealbreaker. Suggestions? [more inside]

Recently, a series of business contacts/customers (up to VP levels!) have found me on WhatsApp and seem to think it is appropriate to use this medium to communicate and request information that I feel should only be transmitted via Work Email. This makes me uncomfortable. How can I get them to email me instead?

If I want to park my car near my house it has to be outside of certain times & days because of parking rules. Is there an iPhone app where I can just input those rules, and then when I open the app it’s just a screen that says OK TO PARK or NOT OK TO PARK? [more inside]

Don't want to pay for monthly fee to have a second live idevice on my cell phone account, because I probably will only be using it a little bit here and there. Is using my primary phone as a wifi tether for a second idevice with a pos app like Stripe on it a bad idea? [more inside]
