My friend dropped her kindle outside on a rock. It bounced off the rock and hit something metal. Then she tried turning it on. It wouldn't and she tried plugging it on, but the light wont turn on. We have googled and read all the articles but there is nothing that will work. What should we do? Please contact me  at christmas3rd@gmail.com

I have a Pantech P2020 unlocked and not network. It only supports English, Francais, Espanol and it doesn't  support Vietnamese. I'm annoyed  when my phone may not display Vietnamese properly. Someone says that I should up ROM and install some tools but I donn't know. How can I add language on my phone?

I want to know what parts I need to build a mobile internet (not phone) device. Not with any of the phone features on it, just a mobile internet device.

Question: what are the *best* wireless speakers out there? Wireless speakers are everywhere and the idea seems great, but every one I have heard so far disappointed in terms of sound. 

I have come across a couple of companies that I don't really know much about - Dynaudio and Moos Audio - both claim to have extremely high quality wireless speakers. Would you view these as 'as good as it gets' today? Are there any serious alternatives? Are there any technology down sides to either of these if I have all my music on a Mac, in FLAC format. The speakers I need are for a dedicated music setup where I stream from the Mac - these are not for a TV.

Why can I not walk up to a dumb monitor anywhere, at my office, my home, the airport, etc, and have my phone wirelessly connect to it and act as my "computer."

Almost every 'innovation' I've seen since the invention of the pop-up has seemed to be in service of the developer at the expense of the user. Having had to recently cancel downloads from Adobe because they tried to sneak Chrome and Google Toolbar onto my wife's system as a ride-along is only a recent and blatant example of how our entire electronic ecosystem is geared toward influencing user behavior instead of the other way around. Is there any company operating out there that actually sees empowering user choice as a core value?

One major challenge in mobile commerce is making the entry of billing information less cumbersome. Are there any new things on the horizon that will help e-commerce mobile app developers make "checking out" less painful?
