Physicists demonstrate time-warping principles 2010-09-28 13:57 UTC
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 2010-08-23 15:26 UTC
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.

Only one piece of software is installed to your phone. Clients such as laptops and other devices don't need any extra software to install.

walkinghotspot.com does not provide a trial download. So you would have to pay first then try.

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.
