    Note 3 Action-Memo Broken by Lollipop

    One of my favorite and most-used things on my Note 3 is the Action-Memo widget that acts like a big sticky note on my home-screen. I use it as a checklist, a shopping list, and to leave myself notes so I don’t forget stuff. 5.0 just installed on my Note 3 and apparently now they’ve merged S...

    500px?

    So I’ve been looking for a new outlet to display my photo work this year, hopefully getting more traffic than just posting on Facebook or [H] for friends to see, and hopefully ramping up my photo business a little more in the process. Instagram was a possibility to get more exposure but seems...

    Lightroom 6 ?

    Ok, so my new D750 is taking some amazing photos, but the raw files are 30+mb each, and my current copy of LR (4.4) is incapable of importing the NEF files. I got the Adobe converter to turn my NEF files into DNG which will import into LR 4.4, but now duplicating every raw file is taking a lot...

    Halp! Obscure Setting Question for Note 3 Guys

    Ok, really dumb question for Note 3 users. Google is failing me on this. How do I change the duration/length of the haptic feedback vibration? This is the vibration you feel when you hit the back button or menu button at the bottom. It’s also used for a few keys in the keyboard and...

    Best 120mm fans for HTPC

    I got a bearing going out on at least one of my fans here, the noise is is starting to become a nuisance while watching netflix... and since I'd rather be watching netflix than reading a thousand reviews on newegg or amazon, lets see what [H] recommends! :cool: So, what are the current best...

    StarForge

    I could have sworn we had a thread for this already, but I couldn’t find it today, so here it is again! http://store.steampowered.com/app/227680 StarForge! An early-access game on Steam that was in alpha for ages and ages – I bought in over a year ago not realizing what...

    Cheap Micro-SDHC Cards

    So I really want to get an extra-large micro-SD card for tons of music and video space on my Note3. I did a search for best price on 128gb cards, and surprisingly came up with quite a few in the $30-50 range, which is quite a bit less than the $120 on amazon for the real Sandisk one. So...

    Halloween 2013

    I need a good horror game to play for the next week or two! What are the odds Outlast will go on sale before then? I'm also considering Amnesia:MachineForPigs, but I didn't really care for DarkDescent so not sure if it's worth it. Any other good suggestions? I'm not easy to scare - need...

    Custom PS Brushes

    So I've been meaning for ages to build some custom brushes for easier organic looking painting in PS. Just today finally had the bright idea of looking up sites to download pre-made custom brushes, and hit THE MOTHER LOAD. OMG - loving this stuff so much! I downloaded about a dozen of the...

    Viewfiner AutoFocus Points (???)

    So I was looking today at the D600, and trying to decide how many kidneys I’ll have to sell to get one. Decided to open up the user’s manual and peruse the specs to make sure I’m ok with it against the D800. Only feature I’ve found so far that the D600 is missing that I...

    Recommend an HTPC Audio Solution

    I would like to replace either my Receiver or Sound Card to get a system that plays nice together. Would like to keep the budget within about $150-250 for one or both components. Ok, here's what I have in my setup now. (My gaming rig-in-sig doubles as my HTPC.) ● X-Fi Titanium Sound...

    Product Photos and Light Painting

    Doing a preemptive move here from the gun forum so we can dig a little deeper and get some good advice from the people here (and show off product photos and light-painting projects). GLSauron has a sweet-looking 10/22, but it doesn’t fit in his light-box. I suggested just using a large sheet...

    Any Newer Hack-&-Slash Games Similar to Rune?

    Ok – so I’ve been in the mood lately to crush some stuff! (a departure from my usual FPS diet) Rune was such an awesome game a few years ago – only game I’ve ever played where you could beat someone to death with their own severed limbs! \m/ Perfectly-responsive brutal combat system, crushing...

    Inconsistent Volume Levels

    TL;DR / Cliffs version: Having trouble w/ my X-Fi Titanium (DDL, S/PDIF 5.1) audio settings when watching movies in Netflix-Streaming and PowerDVD (v10 Ultra). Anyone know what audio config I should use to get louder audio in movies? It is too quiet! The problem I'm having isn't exactly...

    Any Hot-Seat MP in PC Racing Games?

    I'm looking for some good hot-seat multiplayer titles to play with friends on my living-room HTPC (using 360 controllers and/or M/KB). So far the only games I have that allow multi-player on the same PC are Street-Fighter 4, Worms, and Trine. I'm hoping to expand the list with some other fun...

    Android Sketcher - Post Your Doodles!

    Anyone with an Android phone who’s into drawing/painting really owes it to themselves to check this app out! I read it’s a port of “Harmony” but don't really know anything about that app or where it originated. Sketcher is an ultra-simple paint program where you start...

    Favorite Games for Android?

    My Incredible should be coming in today - I can't wait! :D This will be my first smart phone, so I will be in over my head for a while trying to figure out what all I can do with this amount of power. I'm looking forward a lot to playing games on the new phone, and I want to know what kind of...

    Portable View-Finder/Preview-Monitor?

    I’m wondering if any of you have ideas on a product that would fit this need. One disadvantage I’ve noticed of my DSLR is the lack of a positionable preview screen on the back. My last point-and-shoot camera had an lcd on the back that could be rotated 180-deg in all directions that was great...

    Flash Sync Speed Issues

    I experienced a really weird issue the other day when shooting with my remote flash setup. Wondering if you guys might have any solutions for this. On my D90 the max flash sync speed is supposed to be 1/200”. I have successfully gotten images to turn out as high as 1/250” by...

    Trying to Resist Buying this Horrible Lens

    I was randomly searching around super-telephoto lenses on B&H and Amazon (the vast majority of which I can't afford, since they cost more than my car), and ran across this one: Kenko 420-800mm + 2x Teleconverter for ~$180 This thing with the teleconverter is capable of 1600mm focal length...
