WTF is... DLNA?

Tony Jarvie
WTF?

Nice....6 months ago!

You say that "only this month, LG announced that its debut Windows Phone 7 handset, the Optimus 7, will support DLNA-streamed playback." Well, that's nice, but you make it sound like something new.

I'm sitting here with my Sony Ericsson Vivaz (yes, I wish I'd got an X10, but it was too expensive then - my Vivaz was free) and if you go into apps, Media serv. then you see the DLNA server already installed on my phone out of the box.

Since the Vivaz is a Symbian device, I assume that it's on, or at least available to, many Nokia handsets too.

Stop

Prior art?

So... are you telling us that Sony have applied for a patent for the Optimus Maximus keyboard, only in a keypad format?

Note to Captain Kirk: Warp speed will kill you

Tony Jarvie
FAIL

I object!!

How can you call ANYONE a "boffin" when they clearly haven't watched/read enough Star Trek to know how this isn't a problem?!?

Warp bubble - protects the ship while it travels at sub-light speeds therefore mitigating the collision speeds.

Navigational deflector dish - what part of the word "deflector" befuddles you?

BTW, for all those talking about the Bussard Ramscoops - may I point out that they are at the end of the warp nacelles, therefore BEHIND the leading edge of the dish? Not relevant.

Note about relativity;

When in a warp bubble, the ship travels at significantly BELOW light speed. There was a novel written (I think a TNG story) where some-one had lost everyone they knew apart from those on the ship because their warp drive failed and they spent a couple of years travelling at high impulse speed. Because they had then been travelling closer to light speed, time dilation was more noticeable and they had aged at a reduced rate relativr to everyone else in the universe.

Phones?

Reading through the specs on the website, I think this is supposed to say "photos".

"Play media contents in external HDD or memory through USB (MP3, JPG, XViD) "

Microsoft kills Santa Claus

GPS for the guy in the red suit?

You: Where are you?

Santa: I am in the North Pole. Where are you?

You: Scotland

Santa: I have no idea where that is. Tell me a little about your life in Scotland.

Erm, isn't this the guy that's supposed to know where everyone lives, and visit them on Christmas Eve?

You: Do you like Microsoft?

Santa: I want to replace Windows with Artificial Intelligence.

That has to be the best response to that question!

Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot K850i camera phone

K810 Torch

If you're looking for a torch for the K810 (might work with K800 too - I don't have one, so I can't say) then visit esato.com. It's a website that reviews mobiles, etc, but specialises in SE.

Do a search for k810 and torch, and you should find that there's a small java program that uses the auto-focus red light as a flash.

I've been using this since upgrading from my old K750 and discovered that I used the torch a lot more than I realised, and have been happy with the results.
