Difference between Flash 10.1 and Flash 10x?

Is Flash "10x" just a general term for a new version or unconfirmed verion of flash that'll be 10.1 or better? Just curious because the Nexus one said its capable of 10.1 and the HTC EVO will have 10x...

data plans

I'm not sure if I'm wording this correctly. If we buy a data plan phone from say eBay, are we required to have a data plan thru our dealer? I would simply put a SIM card in from a flip phone, but the dealer says that AT&T will eventually find out we have a data plan phone and charge us for a data plan even though we don't want one.

Im sure this topic has been covered, but im a new BB user and wondering why BB's don't have flash player. and ive read that most smart phones don't have flash player. we're paying good money for the phones, shouldn't we have that already included. i know they're in the middle of getting something set up for BB to have flash, so I hope we don't have to wait too long for that upgrade.

What's your perfect Android?

I'm feeling a bit bored on a Sunday afternoon, so I thought I'd start a random thread. So, here's what I would look for in a perfect Android device, what are you looking for?

My specs:

3.9 to 4.1 inch diagonal, 480x800 or 480x854 aspect (anything bigger is too much for me)

LCD screen and NOT one of those garbage AMOLEDs
5+ MP camera (I'd tolerate an 8 MP, but it wouldn't be a deal breaker)

HDMI out port

REAL Android keys on the bottom with an optical pad (like the HTC Desire and NOT the fixed capacitive buttons on the HTC Incredible and most others)

Physical send/end keys squished down in the corners (like the LG Ally)

Display should wrap all the way to the sides of the screen (iPhone-like clearances on the left and r...

Dear Adobe,

Your Ad campaign against Apple is a joke. You are publically stating that the internet should not be controlled by any one company yet you literally BRAG about your proprietary control of web video on the internet.

Is this your way of saying "we are going to make flash open-source"? I mean, if not, knock it off!

What a huge pile of hypocrisy. wow.

Apple has every right in the world to controll what is and is not allowed on the device they have designed, manufactured and sold.

The best part about this whole ad campaign your running is that you are bashing yourself for being a closed and controlling company.

Get your buggy, defective and antique hands off of my phone and computer Adobe.

Apple doesn't want flash on it's ...

Good 4G Info Wimax vs. LTE

Wimax and LTE are not competing against each other. There is no winner/loser. They are not made to destroy each other. Wimax is going nowhere. Ultimately wimax will have more coverage. Why? Because cities will use wimax for everything from parking meters to free wimax. Cable companies will use it as last mile of service. Walmart will use it for connections from store to store. Every corporation will use it to replace wifi and a wimax phone will be able to use all those towers for free. That is the wonderful thing about wimax. The standard says any app, any device, and any founding carrier. LTE is only a cellphone standard, only going to be used by cellphones. Comparing them is like comparing current 3g cdma to wifi. Completely different uses...

Newer technology can track a cell phone user’s location within 60 feet.

Cell phone evidence helps crack 1,000s of cases

Newer technology can track a cell phone user’s location within 60 feet.

Sun Sentinel

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — To crack the case of a speeding Porsche that left two men dead in its wake, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., police turned to a crime-fighting ally: the U.S. Secret Service.

The same government agency that protects the president and zealously pursues counterfeiters played a role in the investigation by analyzing cell phone records for the car’s owner and one of his friends, police records show.

The analysis helped lead to vehicular homicide charges against the Porsche’s owner, Ryan LeVin, who is now in the Broward County Jail without bond.

is there a single, wireless earpiece that is stereo ?

I'm yet to find one that is a single, wireless earpiece that is stereo.

I want to listen to music from phone. I know I won't be able to split left and right sound, that's fine.


I do want that to be STEREO / A2DP so I can connect to my laptop AUDIO, and listen to WHATEVER audio is on the laptop.

How can it be this hard to find this ?

I don't want a wraparound, or a dual ear-bud type deal.

I want a single wireless earpiece that is stereo.

Cost is not deal breaker.

can anyone please help with this little request ?!
