Smart Remote by Sevenhugs - it adapts to whatever you point it at, and controls through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or Infrared

Smart Remote is the world’s first 'context aware' remote control for your home. It lets you control (almost) anything in your smart home with just one touch. You just need to point at the device you want to control and it's screen adapts instantly.

Smart Remote is compatible with over 25,000 devices and counting. It gives you the ability to control any device via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or Infrared.

How does it know what you are pointing at ? The 3 room sensors provided in the starter kit allow for indoor positioning. Smart Remote combines an indoor positioning system with 9-axis motion tracking sensors (accelerometer, gyroscope and compass) which means Smart Remote knows its location and orientation in space and therefore what you are pointing at in 3D. This is the first time a consumer electronic product integrates such a high precision indoor-positioning system. When objects are less than 20 in (50cm) from each other, Smart Remote will display a carousel. It will feature the different devices so you can select which device you want to control.

So the one downside here is that it is really room bound to where you have those 3 room sensors. The team is working on the multi-room feature, to make it possible to use Smart Remote in the whole house by installing additional sensors in the future.

The world's first smart remote to control anything with just one touch. Sevenhugs brings you the Smart Remote that is universal, simple, and completely customizable.

This All-In-One System Rescue Toolkit Automatically Repairs Your Windows PC
 
Paul Vreeland has built a new, “lite” version that packs most of the same tools and can automatically run against and repair common Windows problems for you. If you liked the original, you’ll love this. The beauty of the original was that it offered a number of great utilities to help you troubleshoot your system if you had PC problems, without a whole bunch of trial versions, bloated utilities, or “we found X errors now call me to fix your computer” demos. The Lite version dials some of those tools back and makes the scan and repair process automatic, so you can use the toolkit, walk away and grab a bite to eat, and, hopefully, come back to a repaired and functioning Windows system — or at least some more information about what you should do next if the toolkit couldn’t fix your problems.
We highlighted Paul Vreeland’s System Rescue Toolkit a few months ago, but now he’s built a new, “lite” version that packs most of the same tools and can automatically run against and repair common Windows problems for you. If you liked the original, you’ll love this.

The new sheets v4 api is designed to allow all the goodness of Google Sheets directly from other platforms.

So of course I couldn't resist creating a VBA api which uses it. This allows you to push or pull a sheet (or a number of sheets) between Excel and Sheets in just a line or two of VBA.

It handles Oauth2 directly from VBA too, so it couldn't be simpler.

After a recent debate, jamgrl has insisted that I post proof to some of my 'lies'.
She is as a numb fuckwit, as thick as a bag of spoons and I regret ever trying to have a discussion with her, but here we go...

Here is her original post.
https://plus.google.com/101237098412141015909/posts/c1Rked6CJju

About 40/50 replies down she posts a link to a Huffington post article that is meant to debunk Evolution. The attached is the interchange between myself and ?her?.

She is that thick she thinks that this comedy piece of satire is actual facts. She is too damn numb to even comprehend.

I tried to tell her, but she just called me a liar.

Thiests, you should be embarrassed that she represents you.

Zero credibility, a pseudo Christian.

+Steven Sep There's no way to prove a statement false one makes about having doubts let alone the object of the doubt!

This was a no smoking pub prior to the change on law. Family friendly, food is your stock stuff, nothing to shout about. Lots of TVs so it's good if you fancy something to eat when your football team is playing (get there early though)
