Question

Can you pair it with more than one phone? I assume it broadcasts the video to all connected devices - if so, can you have 3 way conversations between (say) your spouse and the person at the door (does it relay sound between paired phones)?

Re: Java?

1. Are you seriously claiming that you cannot use vector instructions in C code? With the proper switches, gcc can output vector instructions, as can intel's icc and doubtless others.

2. gcc can to better than 'only optimises once' - I direct your attention to profile-guided optimisations. I will concede that an adaptive optimisation scheme would do better at optimising for runtime-variant behaviour.
