Best Buy stores accept TVs for free, and Hennepin County residents can take theirs to a drop-off site for free until July 1 (after that there's a $10 fee). Other recyclers, like Tech Dump , will take TVs for a fee. What other electronic devices can be recycled. Projectors, DVD players, VCRs, rechargeable batteries, alarm clocks, boomboxes, iPods and other MP3 players, digital cameras, camcorders, memory cards, cellphones, chargers, calculators, computers of all kinds, monitors, tablets, cables and... This is not a comprehensive list, but check with the recycler or retailer to see what items they accept. If I take my electronics to a recycler, what happens to them. The collector, whether a retailer or recycling company itself, will look at your items to see if any are worth refurbishing and selling to someone else. If not, the recycler gets it. The recycling company will handle the disassembling of the items in-house or send them to another place that handles the items. If a local recycler isn't certified, you can ask them what companies they do business with and do a little research on your own to make sure the companies are reputable.
It might be even more than that eventually, a truly independent gadget, but a vast majority of its current core functions -- making calls, sending messages, getting information, even playing any third-party games -- require your iPhone to be on,... You sync music with Apple Watch via your iPhone and the Apple Watch app, no Mac or iTunes required (but, the music must be on your phone in the Music app, or in iTunes in the Cloud). I paired a few sets easily via the Apple Watch's Bluetooth settings: the ones I tested in the video above were the Plantronics BackBeat Fit , a highly-rated comfy pair of fitness-targeted wraparound wireless sport earbuds. In the Apple Watch Music app, you need to Force Press and select "Source" as Apple Watch. Once that awkward step is done, music plays just like on an iPod. Fitness Apple has two built-in fitness apps called Activity and Workout, and both work away from the iPhone. The only thing you can't do away from your iPhone is track your walk or run with GPS: that requires your iPhone. Third-party fitness apps can't be used away from your iPhone, either. In fact, all third-party apps -- those not created by Apple -- need an iPhone connection to work.
var tt_sections =... /* ]]> */ I believe I’ve reached the point where my main concern with a new iPhone release isn’t getting a new case for it, but checking compatibility with alarm clock docking stations. Of all the accessories I use with my iPhone, an alarm clock dock is the only one I use every day (or night, if we’re worrying about semantics). iHome is generally the first place a look, and they’ve recently expanded their product offering to include the iHome iPL22 Lightning dock with FM clock radio. Unlike some of their products that also accommodate the iPad and iPad mini, the iPL22 is sized specifically for the iPhone and iPod touch. The height does raise your phone well above the nightstand, though, so if you’re using it in conjunction with one of the iHome apps (more on that in a bit), you should have no trouble finding the time without having to sit up. The iHome iPL22... Of course, snooze (which also acts as a dimmer when the alarm isn’t going off) is the largest button on the dock.
