I would like to buy an e-reader for my 7 and 10 years old children.

I would like to buy something in colour, so they can enjoy the pictures as well as the story.

I also need something that is only for books, and not another avenue for playing video games (so this rules out tablets).

The device needs to be sturdy, because children are destructive, no matter how well behaved.

At the moment I cannot decide between the Nook HD and the Kindle Fire.

Since the last update, my LG G2 phone has problems connecting to mobile data networks. Normally, it would connect automatically as soon as I lost a viable WiFi signal. Now it doesn’t, even when I see the mobile data network paired with the full signal icon.

Is there some solution or setting variation I can try to solve this issue?

I need to buy a new projector, as my old one needs to be retired. I have been a happy Epson customer, so I am wary of change. However, there seem to be some viable alternatives on the market.

Right now I am looking at the Epson VS230, which sports 2800 Lumens and seems enormous in pictures, and the Viewsonic PJD5533W, with 3000 Lumens and a bit less bulk.

Which would be the best choice?

I need to update the graphic card on my computer, and I am trying to find the best solution for my budget and for my gaming needs. The GeForce GTX 750 Ti and the Tadeon R7 265 are both within my price limit.

Are there significant differences between the two? Is there a consensus on the best one?

The LED notifications on my Motorola Moto G don’t work at all. All the relevant settings in the menu are checked appropriately, as I have copied them from those of a friend with the same model. But I don’t see any LED notifications ever. The sound notifications work fine, but never the LED ones.

Is there a way to fix this, because it seems silly to send it back to the shop for something like this…

I am having some issues with my HTC One or, more specifically, with its HTC Sync Manager. Every time I charge my phone on my laptop, the Sync Manager starts automatically, which is not a problem on its own. After I close the window, however, the program keeps on starting. No matter how many times I close the dialog window, it keeps popping up again.

Is there a way to make it stop, without getting rid of the possibility of using a computer-phone sync program?

I own an almost two years old Samsung Galaxy S3, which has always worked perfectly. Recently I am having some issues in reading my emails.

A couple of days ago, when I tried to sync the app, I got an error message stating that the password was incorrect.

I retyped it, but another error message stating that it was not possible to connect with the server appeared.

I decided to change the password in my account, but even the new password was not accepted.

What should I try next?

I have not bought an e-reader until now because I do most of my reading in the bathtub. I recently saw an advert for the Kobo Aura H20, claiming that it was waterproof.

Is this true? Does this feature make it thicker or more difficult to handle than other e-readers? Is it still a fast and responsive device?

I am a university student, and I have weekly readings that I need to do while on the move. I would like a portable device that would allow me to read files in both. Epub and.PDF formats. Most importantly, I would like to be able to modify these texts, such as underlining important bits, or taking notes about difficult passages. Is there an e-reader that does this, or am I better off buying a tablet?

I would like to update my Samsung Galaxy Note, but I cannot decide if I should move to the new iPhone 6 Plus.

Is there a significant difference between the two devices? How do they compare on some basic functions (i.e. display resolution, power, camera…)? And, ultimately, which one is the best at what it does?
