Oh dear god. If this ever ends up in stores they need to put it in a special room along with the pork rinds, pickled pigs feet, head cheese, and chit'lins. Then they should put a brightly-lit red warning sign above the door and hang some of those gross thick rubbery-plastic dangly things instead of a door, to make… » 2/23/15 7:11am Monday 7:11am

Excited to look into this and see if it can help with an odd issue I've been having. From the sound of it, possibly not, but I'll download it and check it out when I have time just to be sure.

For me, I have an Advanced Launcher Kodi shortcut on my home screen to launch Steam, and Steam is set to open in Big Picture… » 2/11/15 10:22am 2/11/15 10:22am

Happy birthday Lifehacker, and congratulations to the many writers who make it great! LH is at least a daily stop for me, on top of the specific "site:lifehacker.com" Google searches I turn to first any time I need a tech solution.

Lifehacker itself has to be among the top ten websites making the internet a better,… » 1/31/15 3:17pm 1/31/15 3:17pm

I think that first paragraph went something like:

"Today, if you're still wrestling today with a terrible inkjet printer at home today, do yourself a solid today and pick up the reliable Brother HL-2300 monochrome laser printer today for just $55 today, an all-time low price today." » 1/12/15 3:20pm 1/12/15 3:20pm

Your hypothetical has been my reality. I never use the in-store pickup option because my first and only experience with it was purchasing something from Best Buy online, only to learn after paying that it would not be available for pickup until the next day (despite being listed as in-stock at my store). After… » 12/30/14 2:00pm 12/30/14 2:00pm

Yep, that's an easy repair. I remember back in the days of the original Xbox, I read on the forums that you could cut an Xbox controller cord and splice in a standard USB cable, then use with a PC (via some open source drivers released by the community). I still wanted to be able to use my controller with the Xbox,… » 12/28/14 11:41am 12/28/14 11:41am

I was on the RC for a long while but eventually went back to Frodo because the new version of Aeon Nox doesn't allow you to change the viewtype on the Recent Episodes / Recent Movies homescreen modules, and I use them a lot. If anyone notices that this has been fixed, I'd love a heads-up, as everything else about… » 12/24/14 7:31am 12/24/14 7:31am
