Intel Centrino 6235 or 7260 Bluetooth not detected by Windows [SOLVED]

I came across an interesting tip today: […] Samsung RC530 and a 7260.HMWWB. Bluetooth can’t be activated on some notebooks, so you need to activate it manually with a hardware “hack”. Just get some Scotch Tape / Sellotape (in german “Tesafilm”) and stick it on pin #51 (picture). Put the card back in the PCIe slot and have fun . […] this workaround works also for the 6235 and other Intel Wifi/Bluetooth cards.. via Intel Communities. Well worth checking out

Select top 2 rows from records, grouped/partitioned by Unique ID

The Problem: A client needed a query that selected the two most recent tour dates for each user ID. This is an easy task for a single user ID because specifying the user ID and an ORDER BY tour_date DESC with a LIMIT 2 clause would get the dates needed. However, when there are a lot of users it gets harder. For a single date, the MAX function works great but in our instance it will not work because we

AT&T LTE data speeds in Low Wassie MO

This result is quite good considering the rural location as well as the trees/hills. Nice job AT&T! 🙂 This test was on a Lumia 635 no contract phone which is often available for less than $80 USD.

AT&T mobile insurance vs AT&T mobile protection pack

If you are buying a phone from AT&T online, you will likely be prompted to choose one of the following: My question was: what exactly is the difference between “mobile insurance” and “mobile protection pack”. The answer is, not much. Specifically, the “protection pack” adds: “personalized technical support; and an app to find your device.” The insurance is the exact same that you can get for $3 less if you choose only the insurance. What is surprising is that many phone manufacturers

GoDaddy changes manual renewal to auto-renewal. Lame.

GoDaddy: “Unless you have specifically selected the manual renewal option, your purchase includes enrollment in our automatic renewal service” This domain was set to manual renewal and I did not even notice an option during the checkout process to “keep” it that way, instead GoDaddy automatically set it to automatic renewal 🙁 I am not a fan of that. On renewal why not have leave it at the domain’s previous renewal designation?

Disable Android lock screen, ‘None’ option missing?! [SOLVED]

I had a lock screen that just would not be disabled on my LG G.Pad 8.3 tablet 🙁 Turns out it was because multiple users were enabled on my tablet. Deleting the extra users and just going back to my primary user allowed me to set the Lock Screen to ‘None’. Woot! 🙂 More info on lock screens and things that can cause them to go awry: How to Disable the Lock Screen in Android | Phone Tipshttp://blog.laptopmag.com/how-to-disable-the-lock-screen-in-androidVirtually every new
