#geek - #What's a good smartphone that I can get for my grandmother?


What's a good smartphone that I can get for my grandmother?

The title says it all, I need to find a smartphone that would be good for my grandma to use. She uses reading glasses, so I'm guessing a smartphone with a big screen is a must-have for her. Nothing too expensive and powerful like a current-day flagship, but not slow enough for her to complain about. Oh, and um, she doesn't speak English so I guess a phone that has multiple languages as well.

#geek - #Have you ever used a hydration bladder at your desk, couch, or in bed?


Have you ever used a hydration bladder at your desk, couch, or in bed?

Asked the folks over at /r/campinggear and many were appalled at the idea but I find the hydration bladder useful when I'm hung over in bed / at my desk balls-deep in my work or gaming. Something satisfying and convenient about drinking through a hose/bite valve system but I hate the "floppy bag" design and want to get some feedback before I spend money to design a better one, adapted for home use.

I imagine a sort of minimalist matte-finish insulated stainless steel capsule with a 3-4L capacity; removable endcaps for easy cleaning; detachable drinking hose + bite valve; something that would stand upright and blend in with any tasteful battlestation setup; something you might fill up in the morning and try to deplete by bedtime to ensure you are properly hydrated.

Any design recommendations or feedback on the concept appreciated.

Are there any other sites like Clash.me or "Let Them Sing It For You"

That are "text to speech" synthesis sites that use clips from songs, films, TV, and other recordings?
