This comment encapsulates one instance of superfluous language that grates my ear: "and then." Say "and" or say "then." They have a nuanced difference, but both together may as well just be "then." »
The one at Harbor Freight is not exactly the same. It's similar, but made by Chicago Electric, while the one shown above is made by Roburn. The two companies are not related. »
"Everybody's MacBook breaks."
What an hilarious concession. My eight-year-old Toshiba still runs beautifully. I've only ever replaced the battery and RAM, and those for upgrade purposes early on (the old parts were fine though). I carried that machine everywhere with me for a solid five or six years, too. »
Yeah, that is totally disgusting. I very rarely get sick, but I make absolutely certain not to eat without washing my hands. If the nearest place to wash my hands has any doors or elevators in between where I must go to eat my food, I will use my elbows, and I absolutely do not care what people think.
I've seen flu… »
I've done the cup of water, but I've got to say, there is a better way. Here's what you do:
1. Get yourself two clean paper towels, and moisten both. You don't want to wring them out too much—leave them just shy of dripping wet.
2. Place one paper towel on the plate; place the pizza on top of the paper towel; place… »
It is actually Windows 7, but if it's any consolation (and this is coming from a former IMAX 70mm projectionist), the sound systems used to synchronize digital audio to IMAX film, even today, runs on Windows NT 4.0. That's because some key elements of timing rely on a specific delay resultant from the combination of… »
"...the service integrates with your Amazon account so your progress on physical books and audiobooks are synced..."
Assuming by "physical books" you mean digital books purchased specifically for Kindle, then, yeah. Although—and I don't think many people would think about this—you can't sync between Kindle and Audible… »
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… »
If I thought black toenails were a risk of an activity I engaged in, I would not do that activity. Similar to the reason I don't do meth...
Yeah, comparing marathon running to doing meth. I'm going to stand by that. But then, I'm flat-footed, so maybe I just don't get it. »
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… »
Yeah, when I read this I thought, "I always knew about that...but thought it stopped working after Vista came out."
Not sure how this slipped past the editors at Lifehacker. »
Adam is in the news today, after taking down a Coca-Cola ad campaign using Mein Kampf. Suddenly his profile picture here on Lifehacker is very ironic... »
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,… »
That's great, but...
How about building in an option to relocate the Drive folder on a system without having to re-download all files? This penalizes the highest-paying users, and is a feature that competitors such as Dropbox already offer. »
This may be an effective set of strategies for people with creative jobs, but for those of us who have to be on alert at a moments notice for whatever emergency comes next, a lot of these things simply aren't plausible. »
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." »
