  • Home automation company Wink under fire for surprise subscription mandate [u]

    Z-Wave items + Z-Way on RazberryPi + Homebridge. Best way to go. No monthly fees. Takes a small bit of setup.

  • News publishers push back against Apple's App Store commission fees

    Looking forward to contacting my current mortgage holder and asking them to 'rethink' what they charge me. And Also my credit card companies. I'll write them and ask them to 'rethink' what they are charing. Right? Because it all makes perfect sense...
    I realize you are being facetious but this is a perfectly acceptable tactic. Usually successful too. If the current rates on mortgages are a currently lower they know they can just lower their rate or lose all the interest income from you refinancing with someone else. They can still keep a good portion of the business if they just reset the rate on your loan. Same with credit card companies. If you are making on-time payments at the 15-20% rate and the alternative is you moving that balance to someones 0% promo they are willing to take a rate cut. All of this assumes you have good credit and have been honoring your obligations though.

  • How to reset and get into a locked iPhone or iPad

    If you put the device into lost mode you have the option to change the PIN code remotely. Not sure why erase device would be your go to option.
