The US will have no problem with it. Your concern should be with the Indian side. There are a couple of potential issues: The possible appearance that your sister is importing the game to resell it. She can mitigate this by opening the package and bringing you only the important parts, without the outer box. A game disc with no box shouldn't arouse ...

I would recommend using Prey for security. It's open-source and covers any sort of device you would possibly be using. I use a mac and android tablet for my technology needs and don't worry too much about antivirus programs. It really depends on what OS you end up with. For windows I can recommend AVG Free. I'm a big fan of wordpress for blogging. It is a ...

There is an iOS app called 4sqwifi. It is based on foursquare location-based service to find the closest WiFi to a specific point, together with possible usernames and passwords if one has provided them! The URL address is http://4sqwifi.com/

I use an app on Android called WeFi, which does a constant scan around me to find Wifi spots. It then tries to force a connection, and if successful, plays a little tune to let me know. I can then stop and use the wifi. Of course, this only helps if you're within range of a wifi - you could be 500m from one and not know. However, it got me thinking, ...

I've been googling a bit these last few days and I found a website that seems helpful to me. Eventful : It's a website that offers what I was looking for, allowing me to filter events by date (it's possible to filter just those events taking place today) and different categories and including links to buy the tickets for any of them.

In an amusing coincidence, the Melbourne subreddit today deviated into a discussion on transport apps, and one of the ones suggested was Offi - a multi-city public transport app. The cities/countries it claims to support: Supported countries: • Europe • United Kingdom • Ireland • USA (San Francisco, Philadelphia) • Australia (Sydney, New South Wales, ...

Ha! I finally found it! The app is not in the Android App store, but it works fine. The software is called "Metro" as I remembered, it's offline and works quite nicely with 400 cities.

Have you tried meetup.com? A lot of the groups there are software or IT focused, but if you dig around a little you can also find some smaller outdoor or hiking groups, arts&crafts, special movie events, language groups etc. - at least in the bigger cities. The website is mobile friendly, but i'm sure they also have an app.

Hostelworld has apps for iPhones and Androids, as a well as a mobile-optimised website. Couchsurfing has mobile apps too but because of the model Couchsurfing works on, this isn't for "booking" accommodation in anyway. What you'll find that "unconventional" accommodation typically does not lend itself to be easily integrated into software-based inventory ...
