Have to confess I laughed at the phone in the cup which quickly upgraded to a phone and 2 cups. Not really 21st century and not very suave! Happy with my clock radio alarm, thank you. The other hacks are pretty helpful and even downright useful. Many of them apply to a MacBook but I tried the fast forward and rewind keys for YouTube on my Dell laptop running Linux and it works a treat. What a great idea. I often need to wind through YouTube clips , so thanks for that! I hope you find a life saver in one of these hacks from UrAvgConsumer.
