If you’re looking to get data working on Straight Talk’s AT&T MVNO network, use the above settings.
I switched from using Straight Talk’s Verizon network to their AT&T network and the APN settings on their website did not work for me. I finally found those, thanks to prepaidmobilephonereviews.com, and they work great.
Coming from Windows and Linux distros, I was used to using a tiling application with my desktop. This is a program that allows you to move windows to fill certain portions of your display with keyboard shortcuts. For example, in Windows 7+, holding down the windows key and pressing left or right will fill the left or right half of the screen with that window.
If you’re looking for this on Mac OS, check out Spectacle. It works great and it’s very customizable.
Update June 8, 2020: Spectacle is no longer supported so I have switched to Rectangle.
For a while now, I’ve had issues with my Raspberry Pi rebooting by itself. At first I thought I was drawing too much power with the items I had plugged into the USB ports. So I unplugged them both (an external hard drive and a USB WiFi dongle), but the Pi kept rebooting. Finally, I remembered that I had traded the power supply out to use as my phone charger a while back. It turns out that the new power supply I was using is only rated at 550 milliamps. That’s a lot less than the old supply I was using, which was 1 amp or 1,000 milliamps.
Even though the Pi uses micro USB for power, you can’t just plug in any charger or power supply that will fit. Look for a 2 amp supply, like this one: EasyAcc 5V 2A Micro USB Charger. Or check out other options on Amazon.
Install and configure minidlna on your Raspberry Pi and make sure it’s on the same network as your Smart TV. Your TV’s media playing application should see the Pi on the network and let you browse and play videos on the Pi.
