We use Google Maps for a GPS when driving. We're in Germany, so this is in German. My 9 year old wants to know whose voice we are hearing. Has an actual person recorded the syllables? (Who?) How do they make it sound fairly natural and not robot-like? She says "I want to know ALL about how they make the voice happen!" I promised I'd ask you!
Mrs. Proust works from home. Her desk is extremely shallow. Front to back it is 14.5 inches. Is there a high quality monitor 24-inches or larger that she can use with her MacBook Air that will fit in this space and still leave room for her keyboard (and preferably her laptop)? [more inside]
I'd like to record some family history video chats with my mom. Zoom's built-in video recording feature produces recordings that seem lower quality than what the hardware itself could do (an ~8MB/min low-resolution recording from zoom vs a ~300MB/min high-resolution recording from my phone). Is there an option that would record both sides of the video chat but be higher quality? She'll be using a pixel phone, while I'll be on either macOS or a pixel 4 phone. [more inside]
When you touch a picture for a few seconds this window pops up with various options to share. It has a bunch of text message threads from iMessage along the top. There have been a couple of occasions now where I've almost accidentally sent a photo to someone from this screen. I really want to turn this off, it is only a matter of time before something happens that is embarrassing. How do I do this?
My 400+ CD collection is outrageously great. Don't want to sell as a collection or individually. I'd like to be able to enjoy them again by transferring to..? I know they're probably mostly available on Spotify, Pandora, etc. Have PC, no Mac or ITunes but would throw some money (and time!) to solve this. What would you do? Thanks in advance.
This is a boring question about "media devices." Should we level up our Playstation 3, or consider a different option for entertaining ourselves? HALP. [more inside]
This is another in my series of questions about telephone technology in 1991. [more inside]
When I originally setup my PC a couple of years ago, Windows 10, I put in a username that at the time I thought was funny. Now, not so much. [more inside]
Two years ago I gave TMobile 55$ prepaid, and they gave me a phone. The 16G memory is full and the phone is starting to glitch some, screen errors and the like. My girlfriend says that I should get a new phone, but I have no idea what I'm doing. I would not like to spend too much money. Thanks! [more inside]
For remote access to work for the next few months, I need a smartphone, solely in order to generate a one-time password each time I log on. I currently have a non-smartphone I'm very happy with and want to go on using. How can I manage this? [more inside]
I have to go in to work, and I bike. Am I being overly paranoid about my laptop? [more inside]
Makers, tinkerers, oculo-gadgeteers of MeFi, it looks as if it would it be fun to make some kind of hyper-specific recording apparatus with the new raspberry pi “high quality camera.” I have a pi but I don’t quite know what to do with it. The camera looks promising, but I am afraid it’s above the skill set of someone who still gets excited when they make a circuit and the led glows. Thoughts?
My wife wants a karaoke machine for our home. I’m tech savvy, but couldn’t carry a tune, even if it had a handle. Help me find the perfect little system for her! [more inside]
Made an important update to my business social media accounts. I included an image to accompany the post. Just realized the file name has some verbiage that is supposed to be for internal use only. Is this visible anywhere, or can I chill out? [more inside]
I'm considering purchasing a console for the first time as I think I'd enjoy the new Animal Crossing. However I'm not much of a gamer so I'd want to choose one that has other games available that I might like. [more inside]
Looking for a way to transcribe my decently-lengthy genetics lectures that doesn't thoroughly stress me out and take 8 hours. [more inside]
My mom is 90 and the new Samsung we got for her is so newfangled even I can barely figure out its set up and functions -- especially related to SOUND as there is NO headphone jack, no Bluetooth -- only the new optic sound hookup for a wireless headphone arrangement -- which is constantly failing and needs resetting -- which she is clueless about.

A couple of weeks ago when I went to log into Yahoo, I got the following message right after typing in my user name: 'Sorry, we were unable to proceed with your request. Please try again.' Since then, no amount of trying has gotten me further. Can you help me retrieve my account? [more inside]
I have a very large amount of papers that need to be counted, to the extent that doing it by hand will take dozens of hours. I have considered doing it by weight with an accurate scale, but I require a lot of accuracy, and some of the groupings of papers need to be separated, so I need to work in smaller batches. I was thinking of using a printer for this purpose - load up as much as it can hold, then "print" blank pages in groupings of 50 for example. [more inside]
