Unleash the Power of Android with These Automated Apps

Unleash the Power of Android with These Automated Apps
And sometimes it re-detects your location once every 5 minutes without you moving. I tested this before by making my phone text me when I "arrived home." I was seeing if it would be worthwhile to move forward on. It wasn't. Tasker is always checking your location because it wants to run an exit task when you leave that area. Location detection is all from the phone, tasker just asks where you are. Edit: As I typed this I though "Tasker should let me set those variables on the fly", and sure enough they do!

Python For Microsoft Excel Company IronSpread Comes Out of Beta, Changes Name To DataNitro Y Combinator Winter Summer 2012 graduate Data Nitro (formerly known as IronSpread) has a simple proposition: it enables you to to use the popular programming language Python in Microsoft Excel. The plugin is free for individual non-commercial and enterprises will pay for the privilege. So far it’s only available for the Excel 2007 and 2010 for Windows. The company has no plans to support OSX. Although power users have long been able to use Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) to script Excel, and Microsoft is expected to support JavaScript in Office, Python is a strong addition to the Excel jock’s toolkit. Python is a top — if not the top — language with programmers by a number of metrics. The good news: You can still use all your old VBA scripts, Data Nitro won’t stop them from working. Other tools for working with Python code in Excel include Pyvot and Pyxll (hat tip to the Hacker News community for the links).

Online Audio Converter (MP3, WAV, Ogg, WMA, M4A, AAC) – media.io 10 Tasker Alternatives to Automate Your Android One of Android’s biggest strengths as a platform is its hackability. Being open source, the operating system enables users the freedom to tweak it and customize it in any way they want, way more than any other mobile OS out there. And no app has received more praise for being the tool of choice to mould Android in any way one wants, than Tasker. By combining an insane number of triggers, actions and related parameters, Tasker has for years now let us Android geeks make our phones our own, in every sense of the word. Let’s face it though: as powerful as Tasker may be, it is quite the devil when it comes to usability. I didn’t say Android “geeks” above in any lesser way; the learning curve with Tasker is known to be pretty high. Fed up with not being able to take full advantage of Tasker, I recently set out to find what else Google Play had to offer that came close to its power.

How to Make Limited-Time App Deals Last Forever At least in the case of the Starbucks free apps, the developers get paid. (At least that's how I understand it. I know, it gets in the way of consumer-bashing, but you can have your fill of that on the Consumerist.) You know the developers still get paid in these sales, right? I'm confused by your argument. Also, why do you think the developers do not get paid? Except, of course, the Amazon AppStore which does not pay their free app of the day developer and is generally extremely shitty to developers. Either that or I am, but you definitely aren't padding Apple's pockets any more either way. You would help him or her more by downloading this the free day.

The Skeptics Society & Skeptic magazine Beginnen met HTML + CSS Deze korte cursus is bedoeld voor mensen die willen beginnen met CSS en nog nooit een CSS-stylesheet hebben geschreven. Hij legt niet veel uit over CSS. Hij legt alleen uit hoe je een HTML-bestand en een CSS-bstand maakt en ze samen laat werken. Daarna kun je één van de vele andere cursusen [Engelse pagina] lezen om meer eigenschappen aan de HTML- en CSS-bestanden toe te voegen. Aan het einde van deze cursus heb je een HTML-pagina, die er zó uitziet: De uiteindelijke HTML-pagina, met kleuren en layout, alles met CSS NB. Alinea's die er uitzien zoals deze zijn optioneel. Stap 1: de HTML schrijven Ik stel voor dat je voor deze cursus alleen de allereenvoudigste hulpmiddelen gebruikt. Gebruik geen tekstverwerker, zoals Microsoft Word of OpenOffice. Stap 1 is je tekst-editor te openen (Kladblok, TextEdit, KEdit, of wat je favoriet maar is), te beginnen met een leeg venster en het volgende in te typen: <! De <body> is waar de daadwerkelijke tekst van het document komt. Stap 2: kleuren toevoegen <!

Prey's New Mobile-Friendly Webapp Finds Your Lost or Stolen Laptop, Smartphone I'm with you on the yuck factor. I didn't buy an S3 to get iOS buttons raping my eyeballs. The desktop webapp has iOS-like sliders, too...seriously, are we really complaining about this? Oh c'mon. EDIT: Actually, this could be a great next Hive Five. i wasnt complaining about the utility, that is great. i was actually wondering if prey does have a mobile site like Lookout. iOS always looks so old fashioned to me, that was my reason for 'eew.' and the right to complain about a free product that works really well and sound really annoying while doing so is a right we have had since Facebook started changing things up.

Make Your Own Chick-Fil-A Sandwiches at Home My view is that you're an idiot. Does that offend you? Not to be argumentative but: by sharing one's opinion in a public forum, one is inherently inviting others to share opinions of dissent. Stating one's views is easily one of the most offensive things one can do, especially when that opinion contains a dogmatic/kerygmatic judgment of others. In essence, just as What-his-nuts (I believe that is, in fact, his legal name) is free to share his opinions regarding the homosexual community, others are free to share their views of his fucktardedness. It is confounding to me to see people defend What-his-nuts' opinion with the "don't denigrate him for what he believes" argument (note, probably a better term for this) — of COURSE I will judge him based o his opinions and beliefs; I should. That said, I take a different tack on much of this, from a personal view, but I would argue that, just as one opinion is covered under protected speech, so is the expression of dissent to that opinion.

How to Block Annoying Political Posts on Facebook Add "i" to the end of "/Romney|Obama|republicans|Republicans|democrats|Democrats/" to make it case sensitive. Then you can just do this: /Romney|Obama|republicans|democrats/i Amazing! Do you know if this filters it on every device you use facebook on, or just the one you install social fixer in your browser? Just the one you install Social Fixer on. Seriously? I don't know about you, but there's no substance happening in my Facebook news feed. In your post so say to add the 'i' to make it NOT case sensitive, but TheChadd's comment says the 'i' DOES make it case sensitive. What about synced Chrome on multiple machines? Wow, this is what Lifehacker is for—making cynicism and division more convenient? Cynicism elects Republicans because old people vote more than young people. None of you seem ot be reading my comments here, or my notes in the post. I don't think so; but you can manualy export your Social Fixer options and import them on another computer. I believe TheChadd misspoke. Damn.
