Uber commute

Boy I love how Uber uses the smartphone. Outsmarting local transit planners every day, giving us practical ideas that work.

Uber might be working on cheap self-driving cars that would offer its customers even better prices than regular taxis in the future, but it’ll be a while until the company can remove human drivers from the picture completely. In the meantime, Uber has other interesting ideas for the near future, including a plan to turn everyday commuters into temporary drivers with the help of an app.

Why can’t I paste into youtube comments on firefox

Another new day, another new break from Google’s youtube control factory.

This is the best fix. The other one stops pasting in other apps. GrayFace said Here’s a selective fix for YouTube: greasyfork.org/en/scripts/12433-fix-paste-on-youtube You need to install Scriptish or Greasemonkey first.

Clear your phone cache

I was almost out of memory on my s5. How was that possible I wondered? Turns out the cache was over 4gig. Why doesn’t android kitkat keep it in check?

Goto settings, storage, cache and then long press on cache to clear it.

Bluetooth Issues with Lollipop 5.0.1

Hopefully this will solve my similar problems.

1. Unpair both devices (remove the car from the phone; vice versa)2. Make sure you turned off your bluetooth3. Go to: Settings -> Applications -> Application Manager -> All4. Clear Cache first then Clear Data: “Bluetooth”, “Bluetooth Test”5. Enable bluetooth & pair again with your car6. IMMEDIATELY disconnect (you can do it from either way; car or bluetooth).. but keep the bluetooth turned ON7. Download latest “Bluetooth File Transfer” application from Google Play8. Open it and switch to the second tab (“bluetooth icon”)9. Select your car and do the following three things one by one (until they complete!!!): File Transfer Profile (FTP), Object Push Profile (OPP), Phone Book Access Profile (PBAP)PLEASE NOTE: each of these steps may take 5-10 minutes and will FAIL for sure (a “STOP” sign will pop up in the application after it completed the action partially. Be patience and wait until that. If you did all three steps you can close the “Bluetooth File Transfer” app and move on Step 10.)10. Go to Settings -> Security -> Trust agents -> Smart Lock (Google): ON11. (you may need to leave and re-enter to Settings to see it) Smart Lock -> Trusted devices -> Bluetooth -> your car
