|Experiments show how two people at two different heights precieve time differently. A person at a cliff for example would age slower than a person at sea level - by a few billionths of a second in a lifetime.
|SkyFire web browser by SkyFire.com

|I just installed SkyFire for my cell phone 15 minutes ago - unbelievable!
Just when they said that Windows Mobile is dead.
SkyFire will play Flash media on Windows Mobile, Android, pretty much anything. I was able to view Flash banners, YouTube (which is flash), even Flash games.
Adobe themselves won't give you flash for your cell phone.
If your phone has arrow keys, up-down-left-right, clicking on any arrow key will produce a mouse pointer - just like Opera mobile browser.
SkyFire not only lets you watch embeded youtube videos, it lets you watch streaming media. For example, the browser's default homepage has a link to live TV so you can watch for example CNN, Fox, NBC and CSPAN or live radio.
SkyFire loads faster than Opera mobile. But I think Opera is a fuller over-all browser. Whereas SkyFire concentrates on media such as flash and streaming media.
What do they get for giving you a free browser full of goodies?
After you've installed and launched the browser, there's an optional login link. Note: I said optional and that its a link. So I guess they make money by collecting your personal information - optionally for now anyway. And as of now, there's no advertising.
All this from a 15 minute observation -- and I've never heard of this before.

|A very good explanation of Unicode -- UTF-8 vs ISO 8859-x
2010-02-11 19:31 UTC|
|This solves a lot of problems I've had with web pages that are not of character set ISO 8859-1 western.
Some GUI web page generators now produce HTML files that are ment for UTF-8. These don't display well on a web server that is set to default character set ISO 8859.
The whole page may come up on a web browser such as firefox (not Internet Explorer) with just these three characters:
UTF-8 is newer and it may be a good idea to default to that.

These body scanners for use in air ports captures a full body image of a person including genitals. The image is delivered in the form of a negative like that of film in old cameras. When inverted on a computer using common photo software, a full color image of the person is revealed.
