Quote from: ziznak on August 17, 2012, 04:17:23 AMI'm curious to know exactly how far along "they" actually are with this wi-fi as radar tech? Very cool technology and supposedly totally undetectable since the device only sniffs wi-fi waves and doesn't transmit anything you can't even tell swats about too pop through the door and double tap yer ass like Osama. I have a great little program for sniffing wifi traffic called Comm View for wifi. Although I'm not using it to triangulate my neighbors position next door I'm sure it's the predecessor of this new wi-spy stuff.

Quote from: Mind Flayer Monk on November 02, 2013, 04:13:26 PMAre you selling that?I am developing more touchscreen compatible stuff so I am on Windows 8 much more often. But I still have an XP pc and its still going strong.
Quote from: area51drone on November 03, 2013, 12:43:23 AMWhat type of software do you develop that actually needs touchscreen? POS systems? Artist software?
Quote from: Camazotz Automat on October 31, 2013, 08:21:37 PMI am underwhelmed by the iPhone 5C's blue, pink, green, white, & yellow plastic shells. Should a power CEO on Wally Street whip out something that evokes a Fisher-Price blue plastic shark? Or at best something that looks like a "back to school" hand held Texas Instruments calculator from 1991?
Quote from: (Redacted) on November 27, 2013, 03:01:52 PMI have a tech question for the techies in BellGab land.I need a headset that cancels out background noise in my environment for work. Are there any headsets out there, that do not reduce audio quality, but will reduce noise? I want to plug it into my cordless home landline phone, and I do not want my clients to hear any background noise during calls.I finally found a phone that has a headset jack, now I need to find the right headset. I'm willing to put down the bucks for a good one. Just wondering if anyone might have some tips, or know a headset that they have used that works well? Bluetooth is out... won't work for my job.What do you guys think... ? Thank you in advance.
Quote from: onan on November 27, 2013, 03:08:21 PMI have a head set made by champion for shooting. They significantly reduce the sound of gunfire yet let normal conversation be heard. It isn't the same as not having something covering your ears. Not sure if that helps you or not.
Quote from: Juan on November 27, 2013, 03:31:56 PMI was thinking about those shooting headsets, or the Bose headsets, but I don't think that's what you're looking for. You want the background noise where you are reduced so that the person on the other end of the phone line can't hear it, right? If so, I don't have any ideas.
Quote from: The General on November 27, 2013, 03:58:49 PMOnan misunderstood...
Quote from: The General on November 27, 2013, 03:58:49 PMI would think that what you need is more about the microphone than the headset (or ears) part. Onan misunderstood... you need a telephone headset with a MICROPHONE that doesn't pick up background noise.And in that case, I would suggest something with a unidirectional dynamic mic. Do they make that for telephones? I don't know... the kind I'm thinking of are the kind a drummer would wear to sing... like this...http://www.zzounds.com/item--SHUWH20I just have no idea if such an animal would plug into a phone.
Quote from: onan on November 27, 2013, 04:04:35 PM*sigh* not the first time. sorry I was of no help.
Quote from: The General on November 27, 2013, 04:11:35 PMHaha. Sorry O-Dude. I suppose I could've worded that a bit differently...."It is with all due respect that I would like to suggest that my esteemed co-forum-member of several years, Sir Onan, through no fault of his own, and only trying to be of service, may have at least partially and uncharacteristically misunderstood what it was that you were asking with help for."
Quote from: DanTSX on November 06, 2013, 08:23:58 AMI have a white 5c. It looks and feels pretty damn nice. I am a professional, and lunched with a "power CEO" from Wall Street just last week.
Quote from: DanTSX on November 06, 2013, 08:23:58 AMShould a "Wall Street power CEO" whip out a gangsta-bling gold iPhone 5s?
Quote from: DanTSX on November 06, 2013, 08:23:58 AMActually, I think this is the best iPhone to date. The 5s admittedly has moderately better specs and features that are not really ready for prime time yet. It also feels flimsy and there are a lot of reports of it being buggy. The 5c being an improved 5 is stable, cool-running, and proven while in a better package. Sorry, aluminum is not ideal in the dimensions of the 5/5s. The best material for the job is plastic if Apple is unwilling to use stainless steel again.
Quote from: Juan on November 27, 2013, 04:42:30 PMSome of these phones use some kind of limiter or squelch circuit. It cuts out the background noise for a long as you're talking, but as soon as you stop, it raises the background volume to full level. I've been on the receiving end of such calls and they're very unpleasant. I'd watch out for them. Something like the General suggested would be much better, if you can find one.
Quote from: wr250 on December 12, 2013, 10:30:35 AMi bought a fm transmitter of ebay, plugged it into my computer speakers headphone output. now i can listen to old Art Bell shows around the house with my mp3 player (it has a fm radio function).
Quote from: onan on December 12, 2013, 12:47:49 PMMy only radio in the house is my alarm clock...
Quote from: wr250 on December 12, 2013, 01:17:40 PMmany cell phones have a fm radio feature, ipods and most mp3 players as well.
Quote from: onan on December 12, 2013, 02:41:26 PMI can stream many stations over a computer. I was just saying I don't own a decent radio.
Quote from: wr250 on December 12, 2013, 03:00:59 PMmy point was i could hook this transmitter to my computers headphone output, and stream anything the computer will play to any fm radio receiver, including the ones on cell phones/mp3 players/ipods/etc, and not be tethered to the computer, or have to crank it up full volume (over gf's tv watching , for example)
