1. I did the bixby setup and adb commands but I can't "disable bixby in settings", there simply isn't such a setting anywhere (i have note8, see screenshots). I tried to disable bixby home with package disabled but that's annoying popup whenever I long-press. If I don't disable it, bixby itself pops up. Is there any other way?

2. Tasker integration seems broken or I don't understand something. I try to start voice recorder on some button and if I play the task in tasker itself it works but when I press the button it just vibrates and doesn't do anything.

Please help, I bought pro versions of bxactions, tasker, and easy voice recorder specifically for this and it just doesn't work :(

Using virtualenv for more than Python projects
Sorry, it's not a complete instruction, just a thought. It occurred to me (some time ago) that Python's virtualenv is, essentially, a simplified version of system "prefix", it has bin, lib, include, and can have more stuff when needed. If you're willing to ...

Ok, it seems I want X1 Yoga after all. But I'll probably wait for Gen 3
Generation 2 of Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga was announced at this year's CES with both small and big improvements. They finally added Thunderbolt 3 ports with USB-PD charging support, which makes it slightly better deal than Yoga 910 (which is still visually mo...

ORICO — small things that stand out
More than once I've written about stuff made by Big Brand manufacturers so I decided to balance things out by writing about a mostly-unknown but good things. In short, if you need something small like HDD enclosure or some cable or USB hub or a dongle of so...

UK plug and wall socket is probably the best there is
While we are on the topic of sockets and chargers. UK three-prong plug (type G) allows you to put heavier things into the socket and they will sit there securely. Also it's rated 250V/13A allowing more powerful appliances and probably safer than any other p...

Universal USB-C laptop chargers can't become industry standard fast enough
Adapter I had for charging my laptop broke yesterday. Now I need to give you a bit of a background to explain what kind of adapter that was. So, Lenovo produces lots of different laptops. And, just like all other manufacturers, they have lots of different c...

Public key transition statement
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE---
Hash: SHA512

So, I've generated a new GPG keypair. It has a set of subkeys (one per usage),
which, theoretically, should make it all more convenient and secure. Also it
uses currently-recommended algorithms (4096-bit key ...
