    Laptop Keyboard 2 Keys Same Character Issue

    Thanks for the suggestion. I took out the A key along with the surround keys and blew them with compressed air. I didn't work. I was planning on ordering a new keyboard anyways since it was missing 5 keys (it was cheaper to buy whole than individual keys) and was going to just transfer the...

    Laptop Keyboard 2 Keys Same Character Issue

    I got my hands on a used Sony Vaio SVF15215CDW Fit 15E and for some reason, the A key on the laptop keyboard is a 3. The 3 key is still a 3. An external USB keyboard works perfectly fine with the A being an A. It's the same whether I'm using Windows 7 or Windows 10 so it doesn't appear to be a...

    Everyone Still Using Their Galaxy Note 7

    My wife is still using hers. I just make sure I charge it in the morning and unplug it when it's 95% or higher. I know it's probably safest to either charge it underwater (a rubbermaid container filled with water sitting on top of a wireless charger) or have it sitting in a ceramic pot or...

    Line-X Covered Egg Drop

    I've seen it on a body of an old Wrangler and have considered it a cheaper alternative to the Starwood Motors kevlar paint job for my Wrangler. With that said, the Starwood one looks great and probably better than putting Line-X on your Jeep body.

    UberEats Drivers Are Revolting In London

    I though Uber drivers are *not* employees of Uber but essentially independent contractors. Things like minimum living wage doesn't apply to contractors, right? If you become an Uber driver, know what you signed up for. You don't get the same kind of labour protection as regular employees...

    AMD Radeon RX 460 Official Specification Information @ [H]

    I wanted the RX 460 to be a competitive card but after reading the review over on Bit-tech, I don't believe it is. In the usual battery of AAA games (probably not the target audience of the product though certainly the audience of their readers) it was well behind the GTX 950 in 1080p high and...

    Yahoo’s Marissa Mayer On 130 Hour Work Weeks

    You REALLY have to love what you're doing. Even if you do, 130 hours a week, it will grind you down. Personally, if I can do 130 hours a week and make millions, I'd do it short term and cash out after a bank what I feel is enough to live and and to make wise investments.

    Keep Your Damn Pokeman GO Playing Eyes On The Road!

    From my understanding, the game encourages people to walk so if it feels that you are going too fast, the game won't work. Driving would probably get you flagged within the game.
