- Brilliant move by AT&T. Create data caps so that you can charge your customers when they go over, and monetize it so that you make more profit even when customers aren’t going over. I think that they are going to run into some problems with the FCC over this. I certainly hope so, anyway.

- I have a work issued Galaxy S4, which is a pretty nice device, except for one thing - the battery usually barely makes it through a day, and sometimes doesn’t even manage that. I consider my use to be fairly normal.

- I’m not sure what is causing your problem. I looked around a little to see if I could find anyone experiencing similar issues.

- henyfoxe answers Re: Have downloadable programs and SaaS made physical copies of software unnecessary?It still takes a lot of bandwidth to download some software, and a physical copy often makes re-installation much easier should it become necessary. Some software, such as many office suites, are huge and take quite a long time to download.

- Ok, to be honest, when I say “custom” I actually mean profanity. When I’m exchanging messages with my friends, it is not uncommon for us to use language that is a little off-color.

- There are apps that can do it for you, as the earlier poster mentioned. Another app that you might want to look at is MP3 InCall Recorder & Voice, which is available on Google Play. It is particularly good at making decent quality recording while also keeping file size relatively small.

- They all do that...occassionally at least. My Android phone does it once in a great while too. I would guess it is some type of software conflict, but I’m just guessing. Just hold volume down and power at the same time to reboot. Also, make sure all available updates have been installed.

- Autoplaying video or audio are right up there with me too. Another one that I think is a mistake is click-through slideshows with no option to view all. I understand the desire to get more page views, but the result for me is that I'm likey to simply leave the site instead, therfore there are actually fewer page views.

- The router at my office uses MAC filtering, but I can’t seem to find the MAC address on my Kindle Fire. Does anyone know where it can be found?

- My son mentioned that he wanted to use Arduino (a microcontroller, or in the words of the Arduino homepage, “an open-source electronic prototyping platform.”) for his science fair project. Of course, that means I will be trying to figure it out as well, and I know nothing about it.

- I think it is reasonably accessible for a pretty powerful program. You should be able to use the basic functions with little difficulty. As you might expect with Microsoft, there are lots of “wizards” to help hold your hand as you use different capabilities and functions. Fully exploiting the capabilities might require a little more effort.

- I'm having trouble getting my PC "trusted" since I installed Windows 8. When I go into Action Center and select "Trust this PC" it just redirects to Live account and nothing else happens. It's one of those things that is (or should be) super simple, but it's driving me nuts.

- henyfoxe asks Does it still make sense for HP to re-enter the smartphone market, and how could they do it?A little over a year after HP killed Palm and put webOS out to pasture in 2011, CEO Meg Whitman has been talking about HP introducing a new smartphone as an important part of the company's future. To be fair, the decision to throw webOS on the trash heap was made by former CEO Leo Apotheker, not Whitman.

- henyfoxe answers Re: Will the accuracy of election predictions push big data into mainstream consciousness?Somewhat, perhaps, although I don't know if most people will actually use or recognize the terms big data or data analytics. Nate Silver's Five Thirty Eight blog at the NYT, which you referenced, accounted for something like 20% of the NYT's site traffic on the day before the election, so people are clearly interested in the results.

- With all the speculation about the maybe/for sure/possible/not gonna happen iPad Mini being announced tomorrow, I have to wonder what other tablet's sales will be impacted the most - Google's Nexus 7 or Apple's own iPad?

- By default, you should be able to see that. It sounds like it got turned off somehow. Go into VIEW>VISUAL AIDS>INVISIBLE ELEMENTS. When you turn on invisible elements in that menu, you should be able to see the boxes again.

- One accessory that we will be seeing a lot of is the $30 adaptor that allows older accessories that use the iPhone through iPhone 4's 30 pin connector to work with the iPhone 5's new 8 pin connector.

- At Black Hat, one thing that came up was security issues related to NFC (near field communications) on mobile devices. This is an area of concern that is new to me. As NFC becomes a standard feature on more devices, how much of a risk does it really pose?

- The recent market share of the various browsers indicates that your concerns are shared by many users. Firefox's share of the browser market has been slipping while Chrome, whose rapid update model Mozilla tried to replicate, has been increasing.

- Most of us probably remember the tech bubble of the 90s, when you could pretty much add .com to the end of any word and get start up capital thrown at you by the millions. I may be exaggerating, but not by much. Unfortunately, that "tech bubble" burst, and a lot of people lost a lot of money as a result.

- There are quite a few good headphones out there, although not at $10 as you have realized. My favorite in-ear style are Klipsch Image S5i ear buds. I use them every day, and I think I spent about $125 on them. Once you get to the $100 price point you can start to find much better products.

- Canonical is apparently making a concerted effort to break into the consumer and enterprise market with Precise Pangolin, aka Ubuntu 12.04. Linux has been wildly successful in many areas, but I think it is fair to say that desktop OS is not one of them.
