    Nope -- from Blvd East in Guttenberg / West New York Area.

    Hoboken is at sea level.

    I would try unchecking the screen timeout and see what happens.

    A detective might know that by checking information in his previous NFC-related screen grab -- one of the reasons I am not a fan of the foursquare app. But fortunately we are all "lounge friends" and have no reason (or desire) to snoop. ;)

    P.S. This is also the reason my GPS shows "home" as the store around the corner from my neighborhood. No need to let a would-be thief use my own phone to swing by the house while I'm out!

    If I made my Foursquare venue a "Home" then it would hide my address, but I honestly am not terribly worried. My building is an apartment with 17 units in and I don't have my unit in there and you need to be buzzed in.

    But never thought about that keeping Home as somewhere NEAR your house and not actually your home address.

    I missed this post somehow this morning. I'll check this option out too. Thanks.

    Same reason you should never leave Home programmed in a car GPS. Nothing like a turn by turn guide from you to have your house robbed.

    Hello all, what's a good Call Recorder app for our SGN? Also, can a call recorder app be used on unrooted phones? Thanks...

    PS: the apps on the market get a lot of poor ratings.

    By the way everyone, I downloaded Splashtop and have been messing around with it. Very cool! It's the opposite of AirDroid; instead of controlling your phone from your computer, Splashtop allows you to control your desktop from your phone! Controls take a little getting used to, but it was very cool to see my laptop screen in a very tiny version on my phone. Highly recommended, even just to try it, laugh, and then delete. It's free, so why not? Still, I can see some pretty good usages from an app like this, so I'm keeping it.

    Are you kidding? It's one of the reasons I still hang out in the lounge...well that and all the really cool/knowledge people.

    I use Pulse on my phone and even with that I still don't always catch the feeds you post. Keep it up...as long as it's not a huge pain in your...you know.

    Thanks!

    Hahahaha, um, in all honesty, it is kind of a pain. I probably have too many RSS feeds. That's why I wanted to check to see if anyone actually reads it. XD But if you guys do still like it, I'll keep it up every day or two.

    I downloaded mine from Amazon Appstore, and mine is indeed working just fine. Where are you trying to download from?

    Okay, good to know, I'll take GetJar out and put in a link to a story about Amazon Appstore instead.

    EDIT: Done, thanks vandyman.

    I downloaded this earlier and messed around with it for a bit. I couldn't figure out how to drag a file but maybe that has to do with connecting to a Mac. As a FAOTD on Amazon, it was fun to try out, but I think I still like TeamViewer better. I have used it for years to fix my mom's computer problems from my computer and now I can connect from my phone in a pinch too!

    Hmm, very interesting, no client side installation needed? How do you gain access to the computer?

    Sorry if my last post was misleading. There IS a client-side installation required.

    I installed it on my mom's computer and set it up to run as an extension which runs on startup. It includes an auto-generated ID and you set your own password during installation. You can install a client only or a full install (I installed the full version on my Mac so that I can connect to mom's PC or allow my phone to connect to my desktop).

    It wasn't your post that was misleading, the TeamViewer website says "Instant remote support – no need for any installation on the client side".

    Isn't a program like Tasker or Llama easier than setting up the NFC tags? Plus, you can't very well set up a tag at someone else's house, for example.
