Looking for a compact keyboard (UK) with Home/End keys, snowflakes ahoy!

At present, I'm using half of the Logicool K240 combo as a desktop-bound keyboard. While it's fine for gaming, when it comes to typing it doesn't come anywhere close to my Thinkpad keyboard for productivity. I find that I use the Home and End keys a great deal, but on the K240 these functions are invoked with a pesky function key, and I don't care for that. Also, this keyboard uses one of those USB dongles, which is infuriating in the age of Bluetooth. [more inside]

Bitcoin ATM? In a Kwik-E-Mart?

OK, I do not understand Bitcoin and how normal people who are not setting up a murder-for-hire even use it. I'm picking up some candy at the local gas station/ convenience store, and they have a Bitcoin machine. Like an ATM, but for cryptocurrency? It takes cash. So, Bitcoin value is over $15,000 right now, I'm assuming people are buying tiny percentages of a Bitcoin and not stuffing 15K in an ATM. [more inside]

How did Microsoft techs draw on my computer screen?

During a set-up call for Office 365, a Microsoft tech used a red marker to draw on what must have been the image of my computer screen that she saw. Simultaneously, the red marking showed up on my screen. The whole session went faster because she drew my attention to a particular spot on the screen and didn't have to wait for me to find it on my own. is there a name for this technology? Is it generally available? Does it work with screen sharing software like Team Viewer and Mikogo?

Can I fix my Roland digital piano myself?

Over the past couple years, certain keys on my beloved FP-3 digital piano (circa 2001) have started to have weird velocity-related behavior. For example, one always sounds at full volume no matter how hard/soft I play it; another will only sound at all if I hit it hard, etc. Anyone have experience with this sort of glitch & any idea what sort of repair task this is? If it's just a matter of disassembling & cleaning components or contacts, I could probably do that. If we're talking serious electronics repair, I might be out of my element.

What is google voice anymore?

My apartment call box currently rings my google voice number when people buzz me. I would very much like that number to ring my boyfriend's cell phone at the same time. It seems like Google has retired that feature. Can I still do it somehow, whether with google or with another service? Bonus points if it can ring an amazon echo or google home or something, too.

How to get music/podcasts to play when iphonex screen is off?

Ok, I know I need to do my homework as to how to work my new phone (iphonex), but: if I have media (iTunes, Spotify, a podcast) playing and then I use the right-hand button to turn off the screen, the media stops. My 6s definitely didn’t do this. Help?

Making Sonos play nice with Apple

We just got a Sonos system. I like to listen to podcasts, and would like my podcasts to play over the Sonos. I also want to listen to my podcasts while commuting, and have the system pick up where I left off when I get home.
