CNET cellphone editor Kent German joins Rescue this week to tell us how to ditch your landline phone and (maybe) your ISP completely. Plus, your mobile questions answered, like: Can I use a Kindle as a hotspot?
Welcome to CNET to the Rescue, formerly known as Real Deal, in our new weekly slot, noon Wednesday PT, with new host Josh Lowensohn. Everything about this podcast has changed, except our mission: To help dispel the fear uncertainly and doubt in tech, and help you get the most out of the tech products you own and use. This week: Road test and your questions answered. More or less.
Josh reviews iMovie for the iPhone and YouTube's new video editor. They actually work! Also, your questions answered, like, How does my WiFi-only iPad know where I am? And, How can I rescue music tracks I only have on my iPhone? Plus one question we couldn't answer: What's the best way to ditch cable and get current shows over the Web -- without a PC?
Josh schools us in saving your social connections and data for posterity, and also what makes the new game Minecraft so addictive. Plus: Rafe on passwords and laptop theft, and more questions about HP laptop reliability.
The home phone is not dead, at least not yet. We discuss VOIP and other technologies that make fixed phones more useful, and save you money. With Maggie Reardon of CNET News. Bonus: Road tests!
Today, Rafe and Josh rescue you from the indignities of working in a cubicle. We've got your rearview mirrors, your headphones, and should all else fail, your USB foam rocket launchers. Because, you know, work is war. Also: How to stream music on an iPhone, how to test your home network for open ports, and much more.
