I’m getting paranoid that someone else is logging in to my Gmail account. Is there some way I can tell, or even just tell if there’s more than one logged in browser?
I’m having problems with applications complaining that they can’t run on my Win8 system due to lack of RAM. My friend suggested it was the Kindle app, but I don’t believe it. How do I figure out what *is* eating up my memory?
I get a lot of status updates and notifications via text message from FedEx, UPS, Apple, AT&T, and more. Useful, but annoying that they’re always these 4 or 5 digit numbers. How can I give them all names?
I know I can delete all cookies in Google Chrome on my Mac OS X system, but can I delete the cookies — or a specific cookie — from a specific site in the browser?

They both offer me the ability to identify the location of my computer if it’s stolen, but what Apple doesn’t help with is what to do once you find your stolen device again. And that’s a dangerous task to take into your own hands…
Ever wanted to buy a phone that wasn’t tied to a particular carrier so you could just drop in the SIM card of your choice and go? There’s a market for unlocked smartphones and one company that has a surprisingly robust lineup is San Diego-based Infosonics / verykool.

When I go to Twitter.com, the trending list is for people who live in New York City. That’s nice, but I’m based in Mexico City, not NYC. How do I change the trending now list in Twitter?
