    There were some good games during this giveaway. I set a reminder on my phone and was able to grab them all. As usual they probably won't all get played, but who knows.

    What are your favorite LAN party games?

    SW needs a few patches to run smoothly. We spent about 30 mins getting everyone on the right version so I'd skip it if you don't want to spend time troubleshooting. Deceit is pretty good, easy to pick up and play. Teamwork makes that one more fun. Brawlhalla is like smash and it's also a good...

    Caller ID & block apps?

    I use Should I Answer in combination with MacroDroid. I use the first app to block telemarketers and unsolicited calls. I use MacroDroid to block a range of numbers with a wildcard if I get calls from similar numbers but the they change a couple of numbers at the end.

    Google Forgets to Tell Consumers That Its Nest Security System Has a Built-in Mic

    I was replying to the post implying the cell phones with mics are with us everyday and this nest device with undocumented listening features was not as bad. We may not know when/if the mics on our phones are on outside of using the phone, but we know they are there. Is a average person gonna...

    Google Forgets to Tell Consumers That Its Nest Security System Has a Built-in Mic

    Sure, but you know it's here. Not hidden as a feature they "forgot" about. Maybe this is silly to you because the device is small, but the reality of this is much larger.

    Need a simple video editor to edit colors

    You can make some adjustments to brightness in both Movie Maker or Openshot Video Editor. Those don't have batch processing. You might check out DaVinci Resolve. It's more complex but probably does what you want. All are free.

    WTB: Athlon XP 3200+ CPU

    I have one. It's been sitting around for years. I was just about ready to turn it into a key chain. While taking the pics I saw that 4 pins weren't perfectly straight so I straightened them. I'll clean it up if you want it.

    NVIDIA Wants Retailers to Sell GeForce GPUs to Gamers, Not Miners

    I bet if they really wanted to they could modify the BIOS of the card or GPU code to check if performing certain operations or code and block the mining process.

    Looking for an easy to use video editor

    You can try OpenShot, It's free and I think about on par with the old movie maker. Maybe not as many effects, but I've used it for a while and like it.

    Unable to transfer music from ipod (for free)

    I use SharePod to manage music on my 3rd Gen Nano. I'm not sure if it will work with your 6th gen. I have an old free version that actually lives on my iPod. I see there's a try and buy option now. Let me know if you'd like to me to up the free version somewhere.

    Surface 3 Problem

    I would try a new longer cable first. The dock probably doesn't care what cable you use. My SP3 used to have dock issues but those were solved with a firmware update on my surface.

    Get a minimum $75 Best Buy Gift Card with trade-in of working laptop B&M at Best Buy

    They really do mean anything that runs. I thought I'd have a tough time with my Dell C640 but once I saw you traded in a PII, I'm not worried. It's got 2 batteries so they just need to last through the inspection. I've traded in a few laptops so far, luckily I've gotten great service.

    What's your fallback card?

    My main is a 1050TI, fallback would have been my Radeon 7750 but that's about to go to a new home. I have a 5450 somewhere, but I'd probably go integrated for a while.

    Looking for a $75 drone

    The Mavic is great, but probably not for beginners. It does do a lot of the flying for you so you're not really flying it, more like getting it in the air and pushing it around.

    USB Extension won't work with Security Camera

    You may need to put a powered USB hub between your machine and camera. I agree, doesn't sound like the cam is getting enough power.
