BBC HD

 

The world is now growing up with high technologies. Many people have got the new Slim (HD) High Definition TVs.

After we so some quality HD DVD’s and Blue-rays. Here comes more from BBC 

             

The BBC HD Channel

BBC always is great channel. It brings us all the world news and great shows about Space and Astronomy. As BBC HD channel is a trial service now, we would like to see great shows of astronomy in HD format. This will be so amazing 🙂 or what do you think?

I would also like BBC to show us some of its great astronomy Documentaries in HD format like the Space Episodes by Sam Neill. (previous post)

There are also many ways of getting BBC. Like the BBC iplayer, BBC on PC and BBC radio.

I would like to see in near future BBC on HD mobiles, I can see one of the greatest mobile TVs is here from Sony Ericsson.

           

Just imagine you carrying one of this devises and watching Astronomy programs in brilliant views. I can’t wait to get one of this 🙂

Scientists find Reason for Dropped Calls

Scientists at Canada’s Queen’s University have been trying to work out why mobile calls drop for no apparent reason, and the good news is they think they’ve got an answer.

The bad news is there’s not a lot you can do about it.The problem is caused by solar flares, the fiery storms on the sun’s surface that create the Northern Lights effect. Thomson and his team found that during solar flares, phones routed through cellphone towers with antennas facing the sun had higher rates of dropped calls.

The rate could be as high as nine per cent, calculated during one morning rush hour in the U.S. Midwest. This connection between the sun and dropped calls, says Thomson, explains why the number of dropped calls increase in the summer compared to winter. source:smstextnews thestar esato

This also happens in a tunnel, under bridge, elevator and subways. But the reason which happens in other places are weird like this explanation of the sun flares. If you have any other explanation please add it here 🙂

Talking about Apple’s iPhone

Talking about Apple’s iPhone

pr0xy k1ll3r from liveandbeyond.com has a few good points on the iPhone… 

"Despite the fancy UI and all the buzz created around Apple’s iPhone here is the low down on why it sucks…

1.       It will be a closed platform running software approved by Apple only. That means Apple will get a huge cut from selling the software through its iTunes store. It may even charge a dollar per ring tone.

2.       It does not have 3G, but will have EGDE (2.5 G). EDGE is so 2006. 3G is faster but eats up the battery life, and apple may not have a good battery in place to support 3G.

3.       You cannot have an extra battery for iPhone. It is sealed. wtf? You can’t carry an extra battery?! Or do you have to send it back to Apple to change it so that they can charge you more money for it. What about when the phone hangs up, as most smart phones do? The best solution is to remove the battery and restart again as none of the buttons or touch screen buttons work. Let me see how they get around this problem…

4.       The Price: $499 (4GB) or $599(8GB) with a two year contract, by the time the contract is over your iPhone will probably be scratched all over like the Nano or be made obsolete by better phone on the market. Think at the pace at which the gadget market is going. 4Gb in 2008 – 2009 ? CRAP!!!

5.       Other reasons are poor battery life, no expansion slot, what is the RAM, Processor speed and other technical details?

uhm.. Let me see how Steve Jobs thinks he can capture 1% of the mobile phone market with this high priced phone that only high-end users can afford. Who knows, maybe he can but only by riding on the current popularity of the iPod…"

blue ray disc !

SONY’S DISK drive division is working hard to introduce Blue-Ray. It merged with NEC in April and will try to take as much market as possible. But despite the fact that some Blu-Ray consumer recorders are out and about, there won’t be any computer drives on the shelves before August.While Sony can’t say much about the pricing of such drives, it can say one thing: they will be expensive. Its Blu-ray drives will be able to read and write DVDs, CDs as well as Blu-Ray disks. In fact the disks are already available and they should cost between  £70 and £106 for a single-layer 25GB disk and much
more for 50GB dual-layer platter.

Turkish designed Nokia 888 communicator concept phone

Nokia 888 phone

It may not be coming to a retailer anytime soon, but the Nokia 888 communicator concept phone is making headlines in design and communications industry journals. Designed by Turkish student Tamer Nakisci for the Nokia Benelux Open Design Awards, this concept includes a malleable interface. The ability to twist and bend the phone into many shapes, even a wristband, means users can carry the phone on their wrist or clipped onto other devices.
