Living Room Computer

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 17:40:43 GMT

I have an extra HDMI port on my new giant Ultra HD (4K) TV set (, and am thinking about a small (~<$300) Windows 10 computer to use both as a streaming device and a bit of browsing on the big screen . So far I've looked at the Intel Compute Stick, Kangaroo, and Shuttle Nano in both the Atom/Celeron versions and the Core i3/m3 versions and see pros and cons to all. I am conversant in IT at the enterprise level but my skills at the consumer level are woefully outdated. So... Knowing there are folks here who have the skills that I've let atrophy, what say you?

Introducing myself from Belgium

Hello, I am new to forums in general and it is about 1 hour that I try to use this forum. I managed to subscribe to the Calibre forum which is the reason I registered at mobile read. but I cannot see how to get on a "home" page the forum I subscribed to and how to post a question on that forum. I go through the FAQ but it does not help me much. Is there a tutorial somewhere explaining how to this ? I feed this principle of forum absolutely great and the only forum I ever posted was the microsoft community which was very helpful. thanks,

How to use a spellcheck dictionary for italicizing

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 01:26:18 GMT

In Sigil, Preferences>Spellcheck Dictionaries, I have added a dictionary called "Sanskrit" by selecting "Add" and pasting the words from a .txt file. Since these words exist in the various .xhtml files, now I would like to italicize them. How to do it? Could the said dictionary file be used to find and italicize the words?

Apple certainly weighs on us all.

Many of us use Apple for eReading, for time telling, for computing (I eRead mostly on the computer myself), and *CARS?* Some news on the CARs front. " Apple Car’s Failure Looks Like a Bad Sign for Apple. It Isn’t." I usually get the older cars of the family while my better half drives the latest and greatest, but this is of interest because it appears that there is no Apple Car on her horizon.

Obligations & Trust

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 14:26:24 GMT

Have you ever considered how Trust between a Buyer and Seller, is generally only one way, and what that really means? The way I see it, unless you are being given something for free, then the seller has certain obligations, especially if you are doing them the favor of giving them money and perhaps promoting to others. So in reality there is an imbalance occurring, especially when sellers don't meet their obligations, both written and unwritten. I'm not saying that a buyer doesn't benefit. Mostly they do, but not always, and really the buyer is the only one generally who has to extend trust. Trust that the purchase arrives, trust it is as specified, trust it is in good condition and will last a decent amount of time, trust it is legitimate, trust they are being charged a fair price ... and so on and so on. Without Buyers, Sellers, even intermediary ones like Amazon and other stores, would be nothing ... wouldn't even exist. So yes, from my perspective for sure, at the very least, there is certainly an obligation to the customer. The obligation is not a one way street though and neither should the trust be. Buyers Unite!

Greetings from Warsaw :wacky: I have started reading ebooks on my first iPad long time ago. But even with night mode on, I got headache after a dozen of pages :brood: To much light... One of my friends was ebook early adopter and he got first two or three e-readers. But they were not very good or convenient. It was my first Kindle Paperwhite, that was "it" :thumbsup: I needed something bigger, so I have bought Kobo Aura H2O as soon it was available on the market (I LOVE global village :love:), now I am temporarily using Kindle Voyage, I got for my husband, because he almost drowned it :shocked2: I will get Kobo Aura One soon :D I'm using Calibre to manage my library. I read a lot, mostly fantasy and SF :vulcan:, but not only. What I also love in XXI century, is that people devote their time and skills to improve products on the market. I have flashed my router with such software and my camera as well. I have installed KOReader on H2O, because it has features, my husband whined about :rolleyes2: I have been reading this forum for a while and finally decided to register :beam: who knows, maybe I could contribute somehow and stop being a parasite :smug2:
