FINALLY! This has been my only pet peeve with Google Calendar. I’ve always hated the fact that Google put any invite I receive on my default calendar, with no way to move it.

To think, all this could have been avoided had Microsoft not been so heavy-handed with how they handled the Windows 10 upgrade program. Trying to force/trick people into upgrading only soured the public on Windows 10, making them think it must be bad if Microsoft is forcing them to upgrade. Much like trying to get a Read more

As someone that works for a software company, this is way more work than the average user is going to be willing to do. Half of our users I talk to on the phone are beyond computer illiterate. A kindergartner could navigate better that most. Read more

They’ll spend stupid amounts on cell phone bills and home internet, but won’t spend the one time $100 for a decent new router.

I think the main consensus for cloud storage is having data saved offsite. You could have 50 NAS backups at home, but a fire, flood or burglary could eliminate all of it.

Side question for anyone that has done this - would it be relatively easy to take my data off Google’s cloud and stick it on a NAS?

You could just turn off the networking on the TV and use a Android TV, Roku, or Fire TV device.

Hi everyone. ^_^ I am Kai Nightmode, the author of Sprucemarks. I know becoming a Patreon (monthly or one time) may not be an option for everyone which is why you might want to grab a copy of the open source version of Sprucemarks before Jan 1, 2020 when it goes POOF and disappears. I made a video tutorial on YouTube

The developer specifically did this so people could use it for free. Personally I'm going to give it a try, and if I like it, $7 is plenty reasonable for the convenience of not having to sideload, and getting future updates. Everybody wins.

Don’t forget to check Humble and Steam! Their Black Friday prices are already online...snagged myself the latest GRID for over 50% off this morning, and I feel much better about doing it this way instead of going the G2A route.

I expect this has to do with a relative lack of local regulations preventing new towers going up in Idaho compared to restrictions in Oregon and Washington. There’s nothing in California yet either despite the fact that Qualcom is headquartered in San Diego and probably is the one making the 5G radios for the phones Read more

You should have prefaced this by telling readers to set their bar of expectations really low - I checked a few cities at random and in each of them, only a small handful of neighborhoods in the heart of downtown had any 5G coverage...and even that sounds better than it is, because when you zoom down to the Read more
