The click track on GarageBand for Mac is quiet. I would like to set up a track of just a snare (or a cymbal) playing quarter notes. What’s the easiest way to do this?

What's it called, the technical term, where 'portrait' mode cell-phone video is converted into landscape by adding out-of-focus side panels on either side, the out-of-focus stuff based on the original?
Is there any difference between front left and right speakers from a home theater (e.g. 5.1) system and regular bookshelf speakers? If I take only the front left and right speakers from a 5.1 home theater system, can I use them as regular audio speakers (assuming I have an amp and power connected properly) and have it sound normal for playing music?
Hi all, I recently purchased a Canon Pixma TS5320 printer (Wireless) and for some reason it keeps stating the cassette tray for the paper is empty or not correctly loaded, but I followed the instructions properly and it all seems all right to me, but nothing is working?
I have an older Macbook Air (2013, I believe) that I freshly installed the OS on (Mountain Lion). When I try to update to a later OS, it tells me it "cannot access the App Store". When I google this, none of the solutions work. I just want to be able to run Google Docs and use this as a writing machine. More issues inside. [more inside]
I know there are Nikon fish eye lenses, but I am wondering if there is one strictly for the Nikon Z line? I am ordering a Nikon Z 50 soon, but I will be getting an adapter for the AFS lenses.
Someone close to me is experiencing multiple calls to people in their contacts list apparently being spoofed from their phone number. Additionally, about a month prior to this, their Twitter was hacked. They are familiar with basic digital security and not to click on strange links, and say they haven't done so. What is the most likely reason for these two incidents, and how can they stop it? Additionally, what digital security measures should they take to protect themselves moving forward?
Two parter! I've just ordered the Apple Watch Ultra 2. Should arrive Friday. I primarily purchased it for the health-tracking benefits but am keen on other features. I have never owned a smart watch. What apps would you recommend I check out? What are perhaps some not-so-obvious things it can do / I should use it for. Part 2: What's the best way to learn to make apps for the Watch series? Thanks!
The house I've owned for 20+ years has an outdoor TV antenna on the roof which I've never used. Now, I'd like to use it for network TV occasionally. (An indoor digital antenna doesn't work well.) So, how do I find any wire that might be attached and inside the house, and connect it to my tv? [more inside]
Airalo eurolink eSim installed but we haven't left the U.S. yet. When we get to our first European stop I want to make sure I'm doing everything correctly. [more inside]

Hi. I am wondering if there is an adapter to change lenses on a Nikon Z 30 (mirrorless camera) to Canon lenses? I have one for Nikon EF lenses for the Nikon Z, but wondering if there is an adapter specifically for Nikon Z to Canon?
I am thinking of buying an ereader since my eyes are getting worse and my partner is giving me (gentle) grief about how much phone reading I do. Here's the thing: I will never buy a kindle, and I don't actually want to buy ebooks. I want Libby and Archive of Our Own, and that will pretty much cover all the reading I have been doing via iPhone for the past couple years. What ereader do I want? [more inside]
I'd like to help my son capture his thoughts and learn to type at the same time. I was wondering if there was any kind of application that used speech-to-text to create the target sentences to practice against. [more inside]
I'm looking for new ways or great examples of engagement in online training modules. What games, interactive features, or just creative structures have you seen or implemented in online modules? [more inside]
Interested in the experiences of those who have used both Android Auto and CarPlay in 2023, and how you feel they compare. I'm well aware of all of the other differences of Android vs. iOS - and have used both myself - but I'm really only interested only in your personal in-car experience. I can (theoretically) use both 100% wirelessly in my car.
