I have ordered a Google Pixel II XL smartphone. It does not have a 3.5 audio jack. It does come with an adapter from C USB to 3.5 audio. That is fine for audio, but I wish to be able to charge the phone at the same  time. I am assuming that if I can locate a "One in, two out" C USB adapter box then I could charge and listen to audio at the same time. Can anyone search the multitude of items on Amazon and recommend a device that will accomplish this goal? Also acceptable would be one C input and a 3.5 output along  with a C USB port for the charging cable. I have no idea if such an item exists. Can you locate either or both of these items for me on Amazon?

Is Microsoft Edge more secure than Google Chrome?  If so, why is that?  Will Chrome or other browsers catch up?  Doe it make sense to use Edge since is ships with Win 10 and may be more seamlessly integrated with Windows Defender?  Looking to reimage some pcs in a small private school and I want to increase our security as transparently as possible.

I have Microsoft outlook mail box which syncs with my gmail box. Unfortunately I have reached the limit of what Outlook allows. I get constantly the message "The message store has reached its maximum size. To reduce the amount of data in this message store, select some items that you no longer need , and permanently (Shift+Del) delete them."

I have been advised to move emails into a new archive box which I managed to do for a bit but now I cannot transfer anymore without getting the same message. I now also get the message "G Suite Sync    Error synchronizing. Google message store could not be accessed."

Can anyone help me please?

Good Day,

I am thinking of sharing internet between two different offices. Kindly advise the best device to use, because we got fiber into the first office and don't want to pay multiple internet fees for the other office.

Based on google maps the distance is roughly: 250Meters, these buildings are the tallest around.

I need a 95% always working system , as internet is very key to e-commerce operation.

Do I run another fiber or simply use a bridge?

I'm looking for recommendations for a online booking / scheduling system.  Needs to be simple to use one that you can recommend because you've used it and it works.  
I'm searching Google and have come up with quite a few options though I really want to get an opinion from you guys as to what's worked for you.

Our extended family owns a holiday house. With family in different countries and towns, email just isn't cutting it when it comes to booking the place for holiday periods.

All I need is a portal where family members can put in the dates they want the house and we're all notified of that request.

Any clarifications on requirements, just ask.

Adding a image in Google Sheets App. I can usually ad the image with the + icon and the add image appears, but I am not seeing a way to add a image currently.

How do I fix my example, so if I select Open link in new tab,  the new tab opens with the url I selected in it.
I'm using Google Api to integrate google login in my Android App. It works very well, at the moment, and I'm able to retrieve the user name and the email, but I'm not able to retrieve the user profile pic.

When I try to execute

Open in new window

, I always get "null". I set the profile picture in my google account, so I'm pretty sure I should get something different from "null". Obviously, photo_url is declared as Uri.

As I read on Google Developers, I added .requestProfile() to retrieve information about the user profile, but I always get null for the profile photo.

How can I solve the problem?

On a new 2016 RDS deployment, I have an issue where any customization made by a user is lost when they sign off.

We are using User Profile Disks.

I originally had selected 'store all user settings and data on the user profile disk'
I've since tried moving to 'store only the following folders' and un-checking 'roaming user profile data' and 'user registry data'

Nothing seems to work and I can't figure out why this data is not being saved.
I currently upload finish line pictures from races I time to Google + and share the gallery with race finishers so they can find their picture.  I would like to take that a step further and share each finishers individual picture with them.  I believe Google Vision has the technology to do that...albeit for a pairing participant bib number with bib in the image.  Is anyone familiar enough with this api to give me some direction as to how to do this?  Also, any idea how this product is priced?
Is it possible to setup offline file sync within Google File Sync within Windows?

We would like to be able to store and sync our documents on our local Windows 10 computers rather than solely having to access these files within the Google File Stream Cloud.

If this is possible how can it be done?
Greetings, all!

I am using Linux Lite on some remote maintenance systems, and I installed 2FA with Google Authenticator.  All works exactly as expected; upon login, I am first asked for my authenticator security code, and then for my password.  Also, in Terminal, all sudo functions are the same - first asking for code, then password.

Where I run into problems, is on desktop apps that require root.  I click the desktop app, and the only prompt that ever pops up is a single password field.  (it is labeled password).  This is for doing most things in the GUI that require root.  I can't use the authenticator code, and the password alone won't work.  The only place in the GUI which works seamlessly with the authenticator code is the initial login, as well as all sudo functions in Terminal - works great.

Forgive me  - but am I missing something?  Or is it that going forward, ALL activities must be conducted only in terminal that require root?  (I hope not - this is for other simple point-and-click users to use as well)...

I really appreciate any input - thanks so much!


Because of a new work project, I now need to sign in with Google to the email associated with my client. So, during working hours, I must be signed in that way with Chrome.

However, I listen to YouTube Classical music videos all day when I work, and my YouTube account's associated with my personal Gmail account. If I log in to YouTube (with IE) with that personal account, will it interfere with my work Gmail doings in Chrome?

I would like to create a GPO on a Windows 2008 R2 server to set Google Chrome as the default browser.

The two solutions i have found are setting the default file associations to an .xml file for chrome though each KB i have found the path to Windows Components/File Explorer does not exist in 2008R2.

The other is making edits to the registry and i don't not feel comfortable pushing that out to multiple PCs on the network.

Any help would be appreciated.
