A few tech hacks to make you life easier and make you seem way smarter to those around you.
HOW TO FINALY GET RID OF ONLINE ACCOUNTS YOU DONT’ WANT
It's sometimes super annoying to close online accounts, as services will bury the option under settings and help menus. Well, say hello to a website called ACCOUNT KILLER . COM. It gives step-by-step guides on how to delete online accounts from popular websites with ease.
We think little tricks are fun, too. For instance, when you press K or spacebar while watching a video on YouTube, it will pause or play the video. How neat is that? And it works regardless of where you clicked last on the page.
There are other shortcut keys too:
- Press J to rewinds 10 seconds
- Press L to fast-forward 10 seconds
- F puts you into full-screen
- Home takes you to the start of the video
- M mutes the sound
- Up and down arrows turn the volume up and down
DON’T THROW AWAY YOUR OLD PHONE
Much like the hack for turning disused phones into Dashcams, you can also use an old phone as a smart home camera alternative. With a simple APP CALLED MANYTHING, you can put the old device to new use. CNET has a full tutorial on how to do this.
