- I’m showing some works at art fairs and usually sell a piece or two each time. I’ve only been able to take cash or checks, which has cost me some sales, so a credit card reader might be a worthwhile investment.

- I overheard a conversation today where two programmers were talking and one used the term “semaphore.” The only way I’ve ever heard the work semaphore used was in a nautical context, where it means naval flag signals. What does it mean in a programming context?

- Sorry, there is no way to do it that I know of, at least with stock iOS. As brendonfinch points out it can be done but not with stock iOS. I think the spam filter catches it here, but Cydia is for devices that are (rhymes with “nail broken” and starts with “j”).

- Over the past decade or so, I’ve gotten used to using my laptop to watch movies on DVD, and I was surprised to learn that Windows 8 wouldn’t support DVD playback out of the box. It was an easy fix; I just installed VLC player and never looked back. Why did Microsoft remove this feature in Windows 8?

- I used to use GrooVeIP all the time to make calls over WiFi, but the app used Google Voice and apparently Google is implementing changes that will prevent it from working after May 15, 2014. It’s not that big of a deal for me, but one of my buddies is between jobs right now, and based on my recommendation he uses GrooVeIP as his only telephone.

- I just got an email from Amazon telling me that Prime Membership would be increasing from $79 to $99 per year when my membership renews. That’s a pretty significant increase, as a percentage of the price, but on the other hand, it is only $20. Will this end up costing Amazon in the end, or was this a reasonable move on their part?

- It makes a difference; the lower the bitrate, the less amount of data transmitted each second and the lower the quality. There are other variables beyond bitrate, though - lossy vs. non-lossy formats, variable bitrate, coding efficiency, etc.

- Maybe. It has worked pretty well for Google with Android and, to a lesser extend, Chrome OS. At the same time, Ubuntu hasn’t exactly taken over the enterprise or home market. Plus, Windows PCs already have a significant price advantage over their main competitor, Macs.

- I’d say pretty safe, especially with the advent of multi-factor authentication. Of course, nothing is completely secure. A lot of it depends on the practices of the user/customer - after all the most popular password is 12345678 (or something equally lame).

- I’m not sure from your question whether your keyboard is not working at all, or you are just unable to enter your password. If it is not entering characters at all, you may have to send it in for repair.
