Re: Maybe we could have a column to discuss buy/sell sport equipment

There are plenty of web sites for selling-buying stuff, I think this one is for something else; but I might be wrong.
If lots of people think there is a reason to buy/sell stuff here, by all means :-)

You should try this If your microphone stopped working recently (Oct. '18) in Skype, Windows 10

My microphone just stopped working in Skype on Windows 10. I was sticking to the older Skype 7.something as lately every update seems to take away something I like. Anyway, "they said" 7 will stop working so I thought that's what happened so I upgraded to latest 8.30.something. Still no microphone. ...

This is how phones and computers could/should be in the future.

Here is a way to have all your data with you anywhere, and plenty of processing power when at your desk. The phone should contain enough encrypted storage (as SSD) for all your data (not suitable for data hogs); currently maybe hundreds of GB and most apps/programs. The phone should also have enough...

Re: Raspberry Pi is Overrated!

I also think people are using Pis in many applications where an Arduino would make much more sense. No worries about boot time, kernel updates, Linux hackers, much less power required. Also, nowadays some Arduinos use ARM processors that are much faster than the original and have enough memory, and ...

Re: America's Got Talent should accept less singers

I do agree singers have other shows they can compete on, so only very special ones (if any) should get to AGT.
In fact if we are to select based on "Talent" we should not hear anybody's story until they are eliminated or they win.
Now THAT's talent; that wins on talent alone!

"SevenHugs" should be more open about what "HugOne" does.

If you look at their website " https://sevenhugs.com/en/hugone/ " you might feel like the "HugOne" is the best thing that happened to sleep since sliced bread. If you're a technical person, you might wonder how they do what they claim, as some of the claims are no small feat, and some claims feel .....

Governments should drastically subsidize/reduce shipping cost of small parcels

Or find other ways so make it cheaper. It may actually fix the economy! The cost of shipping goods should keep-up with globalization and data costs. Governments should have a good look at all categories of “local” merchandise that would have a chance at competing with China if shipping wasn’t an obs...

Banking and the Stock market should go "Back to Basics"

The only reason for "top bankers" to have such high salaries is that they constantly invent new ways of moving money around in such esoteric ways that they make people think that they create value when in fact they create ZERO value (we exclude here the the only useful tools: simple loans that enabl...

How should Mrs. Clinton take responsibility for her actions?

Recently Mrs. Clinton said she's taking full responsibility for the mistake she made about the emails. I won't get into how big a mistake it was; I think she feels that since nothing happened, it's not a big deal. I don't know if that's true; things may still happen in the future; how do we know. Bu...

Why I think Mr. Trump should win the elections.

I don't think Mr. Trump is perfect; far from it. But he seems more real and honest. Even in not wanting to release his tax information there's some honesty :-) (Would YOU want to release your taxes?) Even in upsetting people. Even in saying stupid things. The main reason I think Mr. Trump may be a b...
