10 Ways To Open A Wine Bottle

10 Ways To Open A Wine Bottle

If you don’t have a corkscrew, there are still many possible different ways to open a wine bottle. I classify various methods into 3 categories. Which one of the 10 ways is easier, safer & available? To save you the time, I review 10 different ways to open the bottle, make a few experiments to verify that they are working and compare the merits & effectiveness.

Toward the end of the video, at time 8:09 I will present the top ranking of the 10 methods. My chopstick method is the winner because it is usually available & easy to use although it has its limitations. The limitations of other methods are also discussed.

We can never skip fun in any video, if you want to impress your friends at the party and if your cork is inside the bottle, I will show you a way to take the cork out.

Please use the comment section below to share what is your favorite way to open the bottle.

Google Voice Shutdown 3rd Party VoIP Interface

Google Voice Shutdown 3rd Party VoIP Interface

Google Voice is going to shutdown the XMPP VoIP interface for 3rd party products such as ATA (for example Obihai device) or GrooVeIP apps. This will happen after May 15, 2014. So at minimum you need to do something about it because after that date those 3rd party products will not be working.
While Google voice is still free, this will cause some inconvenience. At the end of this video, I will give you one solution. Since we still have some time before May 20014, this video will focus on the big picture such as what is Google Voice, what is VoIP and how do they work. If needed, I will compare different alternatives in another video. The goal is to have free or very cheap voice services. This video also is a good starting point for people who want to cut the phone cord, stop paying your phone bill and move to something free or cheaper.

Rotate Tires Without Any Special Tools

Rotate Tires Without Any Special Tools

How do you Rotate Tires Without Any (extra) Special Tools. Depending on what kind of tools you own, tire rotation is not a difficult job. Many people have jack stands or pneumatic jack. But what if you don’t have any special tools?

You have to use something, just not to use special tool. I define the “special” tool as anything that does not come with the car. I assume your car comes with one jack and one compact spare tire. Some cars do not recommend tire rotation such as some BMW, they even do not provide spare tires (run-flat tires), the car does not come with jack either, so this video is not for you if that is the case.

Do You Need Wheel Alignment? How Is It Done?

Do You Need Wheel Alignment? How Is It Done?

 

Do You Need Wheel Alignment? May be yes, may be not. It depends on the degree of Toe, Camber and Caster.

Second question is, if you do need alignment, what kind of package price should you choose? Because not all cars make the alignment adjustable, you may not want to pay the standard price without getting the benefit.

My car has over 150K miles & has never been aligned. The camber and caster are not adjustable by design. The toe is only marginal out of alignment, but in order to save my viewers money and time I decided to go through the professional alignment anyway. This video will show how the alignment is done in a shop with the state of the art laser machine.

If you have a Honda Accord & want to know the valid degree range, it is shown at the time 12:50 of this video.
