It is a great starting point but I am not sure it is the most optimized, I am thinking of writing an app to find best of the best Frequency for your FM transmitter based on your current location.

How to filter out items sold by Amazon.com ?

I had a $5 credit for choosing no-rush shipping for Tools and Home, Garden items.
but I couldn't make the credit happen for any item in my card,
The support told me the fine print says the item has to be sold by Amazon.com which is a bit confusing. because I am buying it from Amazon.com I am indeed not buying it from Ebay.com or Target.com So I asked the support how can I filter the items sold by amazon.com, they told me you can't really do that.

I found a small trick myself, just search for "soldbyamazon" in the search box.

Apple blocks Intel WiDi feature

All Intel CPUs come with WiDi feature (Wireless Display lets you mirror your screen to your smart TV) but apple blocks that hardware feature and makes you buy Apple TV.

I do NOT like that.

"We used to allow duplicate usernames ..."

Today I got an email from Drupal.com asking me to change a user name I had created 8 years ago ! part of the email says :
"Since there is a duplicate with your name, the alias will not work and your page will not exist on Drupal.org if you try to visit ...
Can you please re-name yourself at https://..."

8 years ago ... duplicate usernames were okay ?
