There's no feeling quite like the horror that ensues when you drop your iPad in a sink full of water, or your phone flies off a table screen-first onto a hardwood floor. But are you destined to spend hundreds on repairing or replacing the device? Fortunately, no. There are plenty of ways to solve common technology blunders cheaply and easily.

The Problem: "My camera won't turn on."...Read More »
The Fix: This common camera conundrum is easily fixable, says Chris MacAskill, co-founder and president of SmugMug, an online photo sharing and storage site. "It's likely a battery issue. Make sure it's charged and properly inserted and the battery door is closed.

1. Stainless Steel Flatware: Retailers are moving utensils out this month to make way for new styles. To find the best bets for your table:
- Look on packaging or pieces themselves for an "18/10" marking - 18 percent chromium and 10 percent nickel. Chromium gives flatware strength and keeps it from rusting, while nickel helps it resist acids and gives it a silver-like look.

- Good knives are forged as one piece. The blade should be finely serrated, and have a little "give" so it won't break when cutting hard foods - grasp it at either end and flex to check for slight bendability.
