According to the excellent tech news feed Gizmag News, the universal law of gadgetry stipulates that your user manual gets separated from your gizmo. And so it does. Gizmag has found a site, SafeManuals
, which has hundreds of thousands of gizmo user manuals accessible online. It's probably going to change your life by making operational once again that super-fast add-on with the easily forgotten password. I tried it out for a Whirlpool dishwasher which has decided to do a two-blink sequence instead of scrubbing the family crockery. And a hand-held Brother labeling machine. Nix on both. I tried the Brother website etched into the labeller and got several useless FAQ answers to a posted question 'Why does my machine display “ERROR” when I press the print key?' But, it's early days and 500 manuals are apparently added to SafeManuals daily. And if you've just lost one of the most universal of gizmos, your TV remote, here
, courtesy of CrunchGear is a remarkable remote you can use to to find it. Try not to lose it.
