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 ...

Even if many countries switched to 00 (which is apparently recommended by the ITU) in the last decades, the international dialing prefix can indeed be different. Traditionally, business numbers were written as + [country code] [number without the long distance prefix] and it was up to the caller to substitute the right call prefix. Fortunately, modern mobile ...

I'm by no means an expert on China, but the map coverage at Open Street Map seems to be pretty good, at least for the urban areas I checked. I also can't speak to the Great Firewall's preferences, at least today, but if you put an OSM mapping app on your tablet, you should be able to load up the China maps in any country that permits access to the map ...

Consider TripIt. You can forward pretty much every receipt/confirmation/booking email to plans@tripit.com, and it will automatically scrape them and add the details to your itinerary, which you can view on the web or in mobile apps for iOS and Android. It doesn't have a built-in catalog of activities like inspirock does, but you can manually add events to ...

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 ...

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. I will keep digging ...

I've seen a few apps like these, but they all focussed on only a few cities. As a recommendation, use Facebook: Go to http://facebook.com Click 'Events' in the left column. Scroll down and click 'Popular Events Nearby'. Annoyingly, the resulting list is sorted by some vague popularity rating, not by date.

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, ...

Try the app “GPS Navigation (Sat Nav)”. It uses OpenStreetMap, and the maps are available offline (one country map is included in the price of the app, you need to pay extra for additional maps, currently it’s $10.99 for the whole world). You can tap a location on the map and get directions for going there, with different options for driving, walking or ...

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.

I've faced interviews at the US Embassy in Dhaka twice (in a span of five years) and both times it was for attending tech conferences/company retreats in the US. You should present all the documents related to your work (any contract letter) along with the invitation letter when you go to the interview. Also, make sure to keep some of the other paperwork ...

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.

Ok. Let's start with some disclaimers. The information provided below applies to the US and Canada only, though most GPS devices including the ones listed are likely to have maps and ability to guide you in other parts of the world. If anyone tested this outside those locales please let feel free to update the answer as needed. A lot of new in-car GPS ...
