Hi...does anyone have any information about this case that has lights for selfies? I found it on FB after seeing the page like on another account. I went to the website but it doesn't have specific information, but it did have a launch date. Anyhow, I want to see some pics or get more information. I take a ton of selfies and I'm curious. Can anyone help me find any other info or actual pics?

Why don't cell phones come with front facing flashes?

GEARMAXX screen protector

I bought this GEARMAXX screen protector from eBay and have had on my iphone for about 10 days now. Applying the screen protector on the phone was straight forward and look and feel of it on my screen is great! Overall, Im happy with GEARMAXX screen protector which unlike the zagg I had on my other phone collected lint from my pants (wtf!)...well, I did away with it! :lol

Good Linux Distro for a Gateway 4010u

I've already tried Debian and all the distros related to Ubuntu like Linux Mint 17, Peppermint OS 4, lubuntu 14.04 and Pinguy OS 14.04.

I also tried Macpup and Bohdi but did not work because of issues with the Intel GMA 3600 driver. Seems like the Enlightenment desktop doesn't work and Ubuntu stopped supporting this driver after 13.

Peppermint 4 did work best out of all of them, but that's because it's based off of Ubuntu 13. I want a system that's more up to date.

I'm going to give Chakra Linux Descartes a shot tonight because I have read that Arch, which Chakra is based off of, continues to support Intel GMA 3600.

Any tips, tricks or hacks that I can try? Thanks.

Seeking an in-line disconnect/reconnect for standard phone line

After coming up blank in my search for a particular piece of hardware to do the job I need, I am hoping you folks may have a recommendation or resource to help me.

Electrical storms are common in our area and the damage that lightning strikes can do to the home utilities here is always a threat. I've invested in surge protection with several different products (each at least 100 USD, btw) in the past years, none of which turned out to be 100% reliable... and paid the cost. The last few I've tried supposedly had the phone line surge protected along with the power cords. But the last one (surge protector) destroyed during a storm led to to more drastic measures to prevent damage. Apparently, there is more potential damage from a surge th...

Living in a dead zone

Living in upper Michigan, cell service can be spotty in certain areas. I happen to live right in the center of one of these areas.
Living in a "dead zone", I have to walk halfway down the drive to make a cell call.
There's no cable where I live, so I had to get Hughesnet (sattlelite) for internet.
Now, I've heard of a thing called a "femtocell" that plugs into my router and provides a cell signal inside my home.
My question is where to get one and how much do they cost?
If someone could point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated...

Cursed iPhone 666 for sale. Get it before anyone else!

I have some cursed iPhone's 666 for sale. Get it before it comes out! (Or even before it's invented.)

The new iPhone 666 features a Retina scanner (forget about fingerprint scanner, THIS is the new s!t!), a 66 ultra pixel camera and a 6.66 ultra pixel user-facing camera (for selfies). It captures video in 6K Ultra HD. It has a holographic display, Bluetooth, 666 Terrabites of memory capacity, 66 GB of RAM, etc.

It includes SIRI assisted by the soul of your favorite dead person. Ever wanted to ask Hitler, Cleopatra or Napoleon Bonapart "How's the wheather?" and have them to answer back? Now you can!

In other words, it has everything else that the competence, but at a much higher price and fancier materials/look (Carved with the bones...

Motorola Razr v3

I'm just an old guy who needs a phone to be a phone. Currently I'm with Alltel which will soon be switched to AT&T...I may have to choose a new phone plus carrier. I currently have Motorola Razr flip phone which works great for me. (Great signal, large screen and good battery life) Is there any new flip phone out there that could compare with this for my three needs when used just a a phone?

Thank you,

Can a magnet in the case corrupt a cellphone display?

I know a magnet will corrupt the display on a computer monitor, and I wonder if this is what happened to the display on my old Samsung SCH-U450. »

Those black splotches weren't there before I started using a case with a magnet. I am reluctant to get a case with a magnet closure for my smartphone if the same will happen.
