Don't want to pull Ethernet through your walls? Networking over Coax is an option. Cloning Over A Fresh Install, "The action cannot be completed because the folder or file in it is open by another program" is so annoying. More Help Recording A High School Musical. Why did Google Buy Motorola? Patents. To Protect Android. Hipmunk: 'cause searching for flights and hotels shouldn't suck. Users Fought Metered Billing in 1886, too. Why yes we do love good SEO!
Google spend buying Motorola Mobile (and its patents) to protect Android? Try $12.5 Billion., Meanwhile, AllThingsD asks "Is Google's Motorola Deal the Break That Windows Phone Needed?" And, hey, people hated metered billing back in 1886, too!
Tom writes in, "After nearly losing all of my data due to my laptop dying on me I've been looking for a good way to back-up what I have now. Is there any particular program you recommend to avoid losing my digital life (again)?" Matter of fact, we do: check out CrashPlan! You can back up to another machine for free, or pay for online backup. We walk you through setting it up in the video! We've got a code for a discount on Carbonite, too!
Mike wants to clone all the files from a computer, do a fresh install, then restore all those files back to the freshly rebuilt machine. Veronica's got ideas, whether Mike uses Macrium Reflect or Clonezilla... and there are lots of questions: will the restore include the updates? How about all the programs that were backed up? What about registry entries and data paths and ancillary files??? Watch the video!
Scott writes in "Recently I've been having an issue trying to delete or rename files in Windows 7 Home 64 bit. I keep getting the error message "The action cannot be completed because the folder or file in it is open by another program." Watch the video to find out what we'd try first!
Hipmunk.com, this week's "Website We Can't Get Enough Of" is a neat way to search for flights and hotels: it has the ability to sort your results by agony. What does agony mean in this context, you ask? It's a combination of price, duration, and number of stops. You know, all those things that make you insane when you travel!
Just moved into a house, don't want to punch holes in the walls to run Ethernet cable, don't trust Powerline networking, and don't want everything clogging up WiFi? Laurentiu is wondering about networking, or Ethernet, over Coax, aka the MoCA, or Multimedia Over Coax spec... we talk, options, like the NETGEAR MoCA Coax-Ethernet Adapter Kit (MCAB1001), why we don't fear Powerline and wonder when MoCA 2.0 will hit the shelves!
Gene's got some help for anybody with smaller ear canals, like Veronica! He writes, "try a set of Kicker's EB91 "In-Ear Monitors," they are designed for individuals with smaller ear canals. They even have the EB91M which includes a microphone so you can use them hands free with your phone." The EB101 look promising, too, and they're all very reasonably priced!
Rob C writes in, "I'm probably late, but Taking a line-out from the auditorium's soundboard is a good idea, but will take a lot of work to get the appropriate levels. The computer being used to record that track is going to need an entirely different mix than what the sound guy is mixing for a live audience..." We're gonna make you watch the video to get all one Rob's excellent suggestions!
