  • It can help, since it changes the angles that you hold your hands and wrists. Of course, there is always a chance that you will find the new angle uncomfortable. Each person is different, so it’s hard to say whether a keyboard I like would be the same one that you would.

  • I have to provide receipts for reimbursement when I return from business related trips. What’s the easiest way to convert photos of receipts taken with an Android phone to PDFs, which I can then forward to the appropriate person? It needs to be good quality.

  • We have one at my office for evaluation. Pretty good but not perfect, would be fair. It’s quite accurate most of the time, but requires a steady hand. It can also get a little tiring holding your hand in the air. I’d say as more applications become available that are specifically designed to work with the Leap, it will be more useful.

  • Since Microsoft and Nokia have such a symbiotic relationship in the mobile market, I doubt Microsoft would acquire BlackBerry, but maybe I’m wrong. The two main things that BB has going for it, as far as I can see, are BlackBerry messenger and its patent portfolio. I’m not sure who would value either of them enough to buy the company though.

  • I don’t know for sure if it is THE best (which is both subjective and objective to a degree), but the new Nexus 7 is pretty close. The Nexus 7 screen’s dpi is higher than a iPad’s Retina display. The Kindle Fire HD also has a nice screen.

  • I think the main thing to worry about is cutting yourself on the screen if it is broken badly enough.

  • What you are seeing is the march of progress. They must have an 802.11n compliant AP. You probably have an 802.11g device.

  • I haven’t used Firefox in a while, but there are a few website that I regularly visit that don’t work well with Chrome, so I dusted off Firefox. I updated Java, which had not been updated in a long time, and now I get a message that I need a plug in for Java, but it doesn’t tell me WHAT plug-in. How can I get it to work?

  • I sat today that Pebble watches are available at big box stores, and it looks like Apple is planning an iWatch. I can see the utility in something like Google Glass, you have a persistent display that is visible whenever you want it. I’m not so sure about so-called smartwatches.

  • Has anyone tried to replace the touch screen on a DS handheld? My daugher has an old DS with a broken lower screen. It’s not really worth sending in to have the screen replaced, but if I can do it myself I will try to fix it.

  • Office 2013 will open up a “Compatibility Mode” box when you open Office 97 files, which will allow you to convert the older files for use with Office 2013. It takes mere seconds and two mouse clicks.

  • I’ve heard people say that a wide range of space should be left free on a hard drive for best performance - anywhere from 5%, which seems too low, to 50%, which seems too high. So if I have a 2 TB drive, there should be 1 TB of free space? Riiiiiiiight. Is there actually a rule of thumb to follow on this?

  •   I’d like to see an uninstaller tool, so it would be easier to get rid of the associated file clutter when you drag an application to the trash can to uninstall it. Come on, if Microsoft can do it, why can’t (or won’t) Apple?

  • This subject seems to be surfacing quite a bit around various news sources. Apparently, a Kickstarter for a 3D printer is already a major success and it was just launched a couple days ago.

  • I was at a satellite office a few days ago, and one of the guys there who was using Gmail had multiple inboxes visible at the same time. It was handy, and let him have all the messages from one client in one inbox, while we could also see our own conversations in a separate inbox.

  • It's more or less the same, I think, but Windows 8 has some additional features. You can install Office 2013 and link it to Skydrive Pro.

  • It's always a bit of a guessing game to figure out what changes Google will make to their search engine algorithms. Google is becoming better and better at semantic understanding, so it recognizes keyword stuffing and low quality, spammy content.

  • You might want to give Undead Pixel a try; even if it doesn't work, it has a cool name. It will not work every time, but it essentially quickly cycles the pixel, which can sometimes "unstick" them. Undead Pixel is freeware, so you have nothing to lose, and if it works you can always donate a buck or two to the developer.

  • I have a friend who can't remember her WiFi password and didn't write it down anywhere. I have it stored on my Android phone (Galaxy S2), but of course all I can see is ***************. Is there a way to see the actual alphanumeric characters so I can help her recover the password (and get some helpful guy points)?
