Paul asks…

How does Google Voice work when you have no cell phone reception?

Can anyone explain in steps? I’m a little lost. But anyways, yeah I’m basically moving to an area where there’s no cell phone reception for calling/texting. There’s wi-fi and I have been suggested Google Voice for texting/calling. Can anyone care to explain?

admin answers:

Google Voice is a service by Google (obviously) that gives you a single phone number that you can give to people. Calling this number will forward calls to your home phone, work phone, or cell phone. With this service, Google also offers free texting and calling through internet connected devices.

First, sign up for Google Voice at voice.google.com, then follow these steps to place calls/texts

For free CALLING through Google:
1. On your computer: go to gmail.com, and simply place a call through the Chat box.
2. On your Android device: use an app such as GrooVe IP ($4.99) to place calls through your internet connection.

For free TEXTING through Google:
1. On your computer: navigate to voice.google.com and start a new text message.
2. On your Android device: either use the official Google Voice app, or GrooVe IP.

Joseph asks…

How to disable google voice call forwarding?

Is there anyway possible you can disable call forwarding with google voice, if so how do I do it?

admin answers:

I think you just uncheck the phone numbers under settings in your phone

James asks…

How do I make a Google Voice call from my cell phone and keep my cell phone number private?

I have a Google Voice phone number and account. I only give out the Google Voice phone number. But if I return a call with my cell phone while I’m not at my computer, how do I keep the actual cell phone number private and only display the Google Voice phone number on the other person’s phone?

admin answers:

You need to dial using Google Voice app. Only then will your Google Voice number shows instead of your cell number.

admin answers:

You definitely show signs of anorexia nervosa… 438 calories is an awfully precise number and is a 1/5 of what you should be eating… It appears you have developed the disorder out of a need for control and this can happen when you feel like there are so few things you can control in life… My advice is to find a good psychiatrist (not a psychotherapist as they need no licensing to practice) and they can help you get back on track

PetSmart – The Facts

Information regarding the Grreat Choice® Recall

With the recent FDA announcement of a salmonella investigation involving peanut butter products distributed through the Peanut Corporation of America (PCA), we began working closely with all of our vendors to verify whether there are any implications for our customers and their pets through the products sold in our stores.

Although we are not aware of any reported cases of injury or illness related to peanut butter products in our stores, we are conducting a voluntary recall as a precautionary measure and have removed these products from our shelves and website.

Background
Effective January 20, 2009, PetSmart® is conducting a voluntary recall of seven of our Grreat Choice dog biscuits (peanut butter and assorted flavors). We initiated the recall after determining these products sold between August 21, 2008 and January 19, 2009 contain peanut butter product linked to the salmonella recall announced by the FDA.

While some of these products have been tested and no traces of salmonella were found, we have recalled these products as a precautionary measure.

Because of the potential risk, we’re immediately removing these products from our shelves and website.

What Has Been Recalled?

* Here’s the complete list of products included in the recall with their UPC code, also known as a bar code.

Check the description and UPC of any food you may have against this list. The UPC can be found on the product label under a series of bars. If you need help, ask any PetSmart store associate.

Grreat Choice Dog Biscuits
UPC Description

73725702900 Small Assorted 32 oz.
73725700601 Small/Medium Assorted 4 lb..
73725700605 Small/Medium Assorted 8 lb..
73725702755 Small/Medium Assorted 10 lb..
73725700638 Large Assorted 8 lb..
73725700779 Extra Large Assorted 8 lb..
73725700766 Peanut Butter 4 lb..

* At this time, only these UPCs are affected.

What About Other Peanut Butter Products?

* We’re in communication with all of our vendors to make sure there are no other products implicated by the FDA announcement, and that we have the most updated and accurate information to share with you concerning this recall.

Salmonella
Salmonellosis is an infection with bacteria called salmonella. Most persons infected with salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and most persons recover without treatment. However, in some persons, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. In these patients, the salmonella infection may spread from the intestines to the blood stream, and then to other body sites and can cause death unless the person is treated promptly with antibiotics. The elderly, infants, and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.

See our Salmonella Q&A for more information on how this can affect you and your pet.

What We’re Doing About the Recall
Any news that involves a pet food recall naturally causes uncertainty and worry for our customers. We are deeply concerned, and our first thoughts are for the well-being of you and your pets.

* Please be assured that, as always, we’re handling this recall with the utmost urgency to ensure our shelves and website are free of recalled product.

* We’re immediately removing all recalled product, and have precautions in place to make sure they are not re-stocked.

* To the best of our knowledge, and based on information from our suppliers and government regulators, customers can continue to use pet food and treats that haven’t been subjected to recall.

What Should You Do?

* If you purchased any recalled treat products, you should discontinue use immediately and return the pet food to any PetSmart for a complete refund or exchange.

* If you have any concerns that your or your pet’s health has been affected by any of these recalled treat products, we recommend you contact your medical professional.

* Keep informed. At PetSmart, we’re committed to keeping you informed of any developments regarding the recall. We’ll continue to post any updated information on this website, as well as in our stores.

Ken asks…

How to use google maps on my android without wifi?

I have an htc desire hd and although it comes with locations, I would like to use google maps but without the use of data. Can I just download the map of my location with google maps or is it constantly in need of wifi? Thanks

admin answers:

First of all, you worded your question wrong
and no unless you have wifi everywhere you go you will need data to use google maps in various locations

Mandy asks…

How does Google maps on an iPod Touch work out where you are?

I have an iPod touch and just got the upgrade so it has google maps. There is a locator function that can pinpoint where I am and shows it on the map. Since the Touch uses wireless not cell phone signal, how is it locating me?

admin answers:

It locates you via your router so if your using your neighbors internet it would locate his house instead of yours and so forth. Hope that helps you out

Chris asks…

How do you copy maps from google images?

I need to copy part of a map form ‘google maps‘ for a project I am doing, but I can’t do the usual ‘right click-copy-paste’. Does anyone know how to copy the map whilst you are on the part you want?

admin answers:

Take a screenshot of it. Mac: Shift-CMD-4 and drag the handles around what you want to keep. It will leave a “Picture.png” file on your desktop. Windows: Alt-PrintScreen

Daniel asks…

GoOgLe?!?!?

how do i post or can i post something on google i want to post a pic

admin answers:

Actually, you have to put it on a website, they have a crawler which goes through all the web pages on google and gets pictures off of them. I’m not for sure about this either, but I think thats how you do it.

John asks…

GooGLE?!!?

Is it just me or when you go to www.google.com, the page is black?

admin answers:

It not just you

Thomas asks…

When is the google phone coming to Verizon Wireless and did it already come to Verizon Wireless?

Did the google phone come to Verizon Wireless? Is it the HTC DROID ERIS and/or the MOTOROLA DROID? Are there several versions for the google phone? Is the google phone different for each cellphone network? How much is it? I heard that is was coming to Verizon Wireless in the spring but I am not sure. If you know anything, please answer. I really want to know when the google phone is coming to Verizon Wireless and if it came out already.

admin answers:

At this time the HTC Eris and Motorola Droid are the only Android based phones for Verizon and run the latest versions of the Android OS. The original Google phone, the T-Mobile HTC G1, will probably never be released to another carrier because it can only run the first generation Android OS.

(not mine just saw it on the internet and thought it was interesting, but mostly i just wanna nkow the answer and most importantly, why.)

admin answers:

There is no correct answer to this question because you really are not asking a question. The answer is 0%. Or maybe 100%.Flicity flee may be the correct answer. You give a multiple choice, all of the answers are wrong, so it is a two part question, you neglect to say that.There is no scientific outcome. This question is kind of a modern day Koan. I know that this is not your question, i’ve seen it before.
