Got a son or nephew in the 4 to 10 age range? Here are some great scifi/fantasy flicks from the 80s to re-live and enjoy. Of course great for the young ladies as well, just surprising how many of them had a young boy theme in the 80s.
p.s. And if you like these, also check out Comedies Not to Miss for the discerning adult.
Here are the microcontrollers I have with me sitting here on the airplane; about to take off for New Jersey to attend Angel Hack New York this weekend. Well, they’re in my bag, or else I think the passengers and crew would get a bit exited. :)
Wana get some chill off-the-billboard-100 indie tracks? or whatever. Hipster Chill
This is one of our families most used kitchen items. The $26 Hamilton Beach 40911 2-Quart Electric Iced Tea Maker. We brew about two pitchers a day on average.
It’s literally this easy to have fresh brewed iced tea:
- Fill pitcher to line with w water and pour in top
- Fill pitcher w ice to 2nd line
- Place one ‘family sized’ tea bag up top
- Press the one button
It works like a coffee machine, boiling the water and using the water vapor. This means you end up with distilled water, which removes much of the impurities in tap water.
We use regular Lipton iced tea bags available at any grocery store in the south, or $12 for 144 bags (only $0.08 a pitcher) on amazon.
What to remove all the voice memos from your iPhone? The iPhone app doesn’t have a ‘remove all’ option, but it is easy with the help of this little 3rd party app.
- Install i-FunBox, it is free, legit, and works on PC and Mac
- Select all the files (not the Sync folder) in the Voice Memos section (click the first item, hold down shift, click the last item), then right-click an item and choose “Delete” (see this screenshot)
- Close and restart the Voice Memo app
- In iTunes, there is a “Voice Memos” playlist. Similarly, select all items in there right-click, and “Delete”
There are a lot of posts out there with people asking. I just removed over 1,600 voice memos recorded over the last year with this technique. It’s been bugging my for two years. The iPhone user’s guide says you can just delete the items from the iTunes Voice Memos playlist, sync, and they’ll be removed from the iPhone, but that never worked for me. Hope it helps, cheers.
These are a great little pair of Bluetooth headphones for only $30 (when this was posted) with like 4.5 stars w over 2,100 reviews on amazon. They fold up nicely, have good battery life, decent volume and bass response, good noise cancelling phone mic, support A2DP and headset profiles, are easy to control with one main button plus +/- volume and next/previous track buttons. Not the highest fidelity of course, but of the half-dozen pairs of bluetooth headphones/buds I’ve purchased (from $200 on down), they’re my favorite for the value for the dollar.
(one last time, don’t expect Beats Audio, Bose QuiteComfort, or wired Sennheiser quality audio, but they do sound good and for $30 wireless headphones they’re a great deal)
