How to wipe data from broken iPhones?

I have two broken iPhones (a 5 and an original) that I want to recycle. They no longer turn on and are not recognised by iTunes when plugged into a computer so I can’t wipe the data that way. If I can open up the back of the phones is there a piece of hardware I can remove to ensure no personal data remains before sending them to be recycled?

Hashtag word generator/mixer

I’m looking for a program or app (prefer app for phone) that I can have, say, 10 groups of 100 words (hash tagged, but I don’t think that matters for the app/program) that I enter myself, then it will randomly mix them up for me and give me 30, or let me just select the first 30. This is for Instagram, to make it easier to add hashtagged words and save my fingers. I want to choose the words myself, not have them generated externally. [more inside]

iPhone has stopped recognizing my podcast app as the main media player

I have an iPhone X (software version 12.2) and as of yesterday, my iPhone has no longer been recognizing my podcast app (I use RSSRadio) as the main audio player even when I'm actively listening to it. If I swipe down to get to the control center, where it used to show whatever podcast I was listening to in the 'music' section, now it has a random song from the iTunes app queued up as ready to go instead.

Standard-issue red flag, or extra-red red flag?

OvuView, the fertility tracking app I've used (and recommended on here!) for years, just merged with TempDrop. Neat, I thought, since I'd been idly thinking of getting a TempDrop wearable thermometer anyway. Then I read their privacy policy, and I can't quite tell if it's as icky and insufficiently private as it sounds. AskMe, I need a second opinion. Relevant links below the fold. [more inside]

Any tricks for more Google Voice phone number choices?

Used to be, when signing up for Google Voice, you could page through tons of available phone numbers until you saw one you wanted. Now, for each area code or town, it only presents a dozen or so choices. Are there any tricks for seeing more? Or for getting a number on a desired exchange when a town has lots of exchanges (all within one area code)?

Reliable 8 mm / super 8 film digitizing in New York City?

I've got some irreplaceable family films from the 1960's and 1970's that I'd like to transfer to high-quality digital files -- or at least as high quality as one can reasonably get out of the 8 mm, Super 8, and Super 8 Ektasound formats. Looking for a reliable film transfer house in New York City that can do the job with minimal chance of loss or damage to the films. [more inside]

UX pros, what are even doing with these prototypes

I know that this isn't a UX-focused forum and this is a very niche question but here we go. I'm a UX designer and I really like using Axure because it lets me quickly mock up realistic interactions with conditional logic and a data set that I can manipulate easily. For a bunch of reasons I've been tasked with looking into alternatives and I'm not having much luck. [more inside]

What software programs/apps do I need to build an online test prep/exam?

I have been tasked with creating an online course of some magnitude, complete with a final exam, to be sold/administered by my employer. This is not my field of expertise, other than that I am generally computer savvy. What should I be looking for, what kind of learning curve should I expect, and is any of it free? [more inside]

Same email, same attachment, but

I reopened an email sent to me via Craiglist relay (through personals) in 2014. The person in the attached photo is the same as in the one I remember, but everything else is different. It's most likely that I'm misrembering or that I conflated his original photo with a different email, but is there any chance I'm not? [more inside]
