Ask Slashdot: Unlimited Data Plan For Seniors?

hejman08 Re:Cable? (170 comments)

The WiFi is basically only in the library and a sort of break room, and since the place is ridiculous amounts of concrete, no signal comes close to her room.

Low-Carb Diet Trumps Low-Fat Diet In Major New Study

hejman08 The unpopular opinion (588 comments)

There are several diets out there- particularly Keto, that people have had a lot of success with. In just 2 months I almost lost 30 pounds (call it water weight all you want) and it was a low carb, high fat diet. My bad cholesterol even went down a couple points, and I still feel like I have my muscles. There is a lot of research supporting this idea out there, if you realize that the FDA is probably bought out by people who make high-carb, high-profit foods.

Netflix Expects To Be Unprofitable In 2012

hejman08 Re:Netflix pissed off all the whiny brats (323 comments)

On what plane of existence is 60% a tiny amount? I was actually a faithful customer since its inception, but raising prices that much out of nowhere when neither service is THAT worth it is probably why most subscribers left.

Ask Slashdot: Good Money Management Software with Phone Component?

hejman08 hejman08 writes  |  about a month ago

hejman08 (2461596) writes "I am looking for a money-manager software that I can use to track my credit card, a joint checking account with my wife, and a few other accounts. Currently this is accomplished by a rudimentary spreadsheet I pulled out of an unmentioned orifice a few weeks ago that has frankensteined itself into a somewhat manageable workbook. It works for what I need it to, and with my Dropbox account, I can edit it both at work and at home. The thing is, I'd really like something that's a) a little more professional than an Excel file and b) able to be edited with my Android. For example, if I go to Chipotle right now, I have to take a receipt home and enter in the spreadsheet when I remember I have a backlog of 10+ receipts, but I'd like something that I can just pull out my phone, enter it in, and have it synced to software (be it browser or installation based) that I use at work and home. It would also be extremely helpful if it can categorize purchases, but in a way that if I don't like its category or want to change it, or to not "count" a transaction such as bank transfers, I have the control to customize that aspect of it. Bonus points if it can create pretty charts a la Excel. My question is, does the almighty Slashdot know of such a software, preferably no more than say, 30 bucks US?"

Ask Slashdot: Unlimited Data Plan for Seniors?

hejman08 hejman08 writes  |  about 3 months ago

hejman08 (2461596) writes "I am having an issue with my grandmother who, like many of us, has discovered the wonders one can experience by browsing the internet while pooping. She is on her own plan through Verizon with 1GB of data, and she literally blows through it in 3 days or less every month, then complains about having nothing to do. They have WiFi at her senior center, but only in specific rooms, and she has bad ankles and knees so she wants to stay home. Internet service would cost 80 a month to add where she lives. What I am wondering, is if any of the genius slashdotters out there know of a plan that- regardless of cost of phone, which we could manage as a gift to her, once- would allow her to have at least 300 minutes, 250 texts, and truly unlimited data (as in none of that Unlimited* stuff that is out there where they drop you to caveman speeds within a gig of usage), all for the price of less than say, 65 a month? The big 4 carriers don't seem to have anything that would work for her."

Phonebloks and Motorola Announce Partnership

hejman08 hejman08 writes  |  about a year ago

hejman08 (2461596) writes "Turns out those who believed Phonebloks- the idea for a modular phone that could be updated and replaced piece by piece that created a giant hit on most of our Newsfeeds in the last 24 hours- were actually quite wrong. Motorola announced today that they are partnering with Phonebloks, and have actually been working on a modular phone for over a year. Project Ara is expected to be releasing developer kits this winter. Could this actually change the face of how phones will be sold and developed in the near future?"
