Echo Show now available in the UK, what are some good uses of the screen?

1Submitted by Izwe - View comments

So far I've used mine to watch film trailers and view my shopping list, what else can it do?

Are there any bad picture of Spaceship Earth?

It seems no matter what the conditions, angle, camera or weather you can't take a bad photo of the golf ball.

Edit: Pictures*

WYR be the opposite sex for 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, or 1 year?

11Submitted by Izwe - View comments

You're fully functional in every way. If you are currently pregnant then that will get paused until you change back, if you get pregnant then unless you can go full term then the foetus will cease to exist when you change back.

Is there an Alexa wiki?

4Submitted by Izwe - View comments

Googling "alexa wiki" brings up results about getting your Echo to read articles from wikipedia, not helpful. A wiki that details all skills, features, commands, etc. would be grand.

[UK] Are there any RFID door locks which also have key operation?

1Submitted by Izwe - View comments

I'm struggling to find a smart multi-point door lock (e.g. the Yale Conexis L1 which also has a key hole for when the mains power fails. Ideally I'd like to use my own RFID tags (coughDisney MagicBandscough), but that's not a deal-breaker.

Anyone know of such a device?

Edit: Just want to clarify, you're not in prison for life, let's say 5 years for non-domestic burglary.

Figment/Imagination comic book

6Submitted by Izwe - View comments

I'm currently in WDW looking for volume 1 of the Figment/Imagination hard back comic book. I know I saw it on-property somewhere in the past few days, but I can't for the life of me remember where. I looked in the Imagination gift shop today and they only had vol. 2, I asked if they could locate it, but none of the comic books appear on their system. I've just got back from Springs and they don't have any comic books (other than Star Wars) it seems, nor could they locate it for me either. Anyone know where I might find it?

Can you pay for a Disney hotel upgrade on-property?

1Submitted by Izwe - View comments

My Google-poo has failed me on this one, I can find threads on free upgrades, and paying for them before you go, but none on walking up the the check-in desk of your (original) hotel and asking, "would it be possible to upgrade to Port Orleans?"

Is that a thing, does it happen, and if so how does one go about best asking for an upgrade?

Would Dropbox work if I set up symbolic links and selective sync on different devices?

3Submitted by Izwe - View comments

I know it's not a "simple" solution, but for £18/month I can backup an unlimited number of devices & bytes.

My idea is to use Dropbox by installing it on all my devices, having one folder in the root Dropbox folder for each device and only sync that folder on that device by using the "selective sync" option. Within the "device folder" I set up symbolic links to all the folders I want to backup.

Dropbox does 120 days of version history, so it covers accidental deletions and is a damn sight cheaper than many other "unlimited" offerings. Plus the mobile app is pretty great & free and the website can be used to download any file off any device from anywhere.

Thoughts? Am I missing anything?

WYR have a remote control for your body, or that of one other person?

2Submitted by Izwe - View comments

You can use the remote to change anything, so long as you/they remain human. Eye colour, height, weight, voice, flatulence, hair length, shoe size, strength, vision, anything you want changed can be tweaked whenever you want (you must be holding the remote (and be within Bluetooth range of the other person)).

(UK) General purpose with a real numpad & touch-screen.

2Submitted by Izwe - View comments

  • Total budget and country of purchase: £800+ (ex VAT), UK

  • Do you prefer a 2 in 1 form factor, good battery life or best specifications for the money? Pick or include any that apply. good battery life

  • How important is weight and thinness to you? weight is, but thinness is not

  • Which OS do you require? Windows, Mac, Chrome OS, Linux. Windows

  • Do you have a preferred screen size? If indifferent, put N/A. N/A

  • Are you doing any CAD/video editing/photo editing/gaming? List which programs/games you desire to run. a few, older games like Left 4 Dead, The Sims 2, Minecraft

  • If you're gaming, do you have certain games you want to play? At what settings and FPS do you want? Ultra settings is not required, but running at 1920x1080 would be required.

  • Any specific requirements such as good keyboard, reliable build quality, touch-screen, finger-print reader, optical drive or good input devices (keyboard/touchpad)? touch-screen & a real numpad are absolute requirements above all else, even specs & weight

  • Leave any finishing thoughts here that you may feel are necessary and beneficial to the discussion. The main use of this laptop will be for writing coursework and doing invoices, with the odd bit of older-school gaming. I'm still worried about Lenovo's spyware/rootkit, is that still a "thing"?

WYR: Everytime you sneeze you swap biological sex for 24 hours, or every time you sneeze you get $10.

37Submitted by Izwe - View comments

Option 1: Every time you sneeze, you transform into the opposite sex for a minimum of 24 hours. After 24 hours have passed, your next sneeze will transform you back to your original sex for at least another 24 hours. The process is instantaneous and painless. Sneezes that occur during the 24 wait do not count. If you are pregnant, the pregnancy will resume when you return to female form, unaffected.

Option 2: Every time you sneeze, $10 is added to your bank account, tax free. If you do not have a bank account, it will be added to a magic wallet which you can never lose.
