So apparently I encrypted my iPhone backup using iTunes. And apparently I didn't save the password down anywhere because I was like "oh that's so easy, of course I'll remember it." Which means now I can't. And I need to. I've now tried 70+ passwords, I've gone through my diaries of the days I did the last restore, nothing. So is there ANY way I can get a clue as to what it is? A first letter. Number of letters. SOMETHING.

I work for a large tech company that requires us to carry smart phones. I would like to keep as much information to myself as possible, but I don't want to pay for a private phone -- I don't use my phone too much. What's my best way to approach this? [more inside]

My phone totally shut down on me 2 days ago and then yesterday someone in my family had a serious accident.

I have been using Microsoft OneNote for some time on my Windows desktop, through the Office 365 site in Chrome and on my iPhone. All seems to have been working pretty well all that time across those devices, but I just saw two pages in a notebook disappear before my eyes and I can't seem to find them anywhere. [more inside]
I have a fairly physical job--lifting, walking, some climbing--and I'd like a pair of wireless earbuds with excellent sound for audiobooks. A lot of the online reviews talk about sound quality for music, but I want to hear the books well. A little noise cancellation would be nice, and if they could auto-pause when they fell out of my ears, that would also be useful. I have a Google Pixel 3a phone. Ideally looking for the $50ish sorts but can go higher. What earbuds do you recommend?

Say you have a cellular modem that runs off a 12V power supply. Say you'd like to run it off a 12V battery bank instead of a wall wart. The battery bank's output varies from ~12V to ~13.5V depending on sunshine and what else is plugged in/running at the moment. [more inside]
