Comment swimming pool (Score 1) 422

On my first night of my Ibiza holiday I dove, slightly intoxicated, into the swimming pool and stayed there for at least hour. Not sure if I also pissed in the pool.
I forgot my new iPhone was in the pocket of my swimming trousers. Next day I found my wet phone, still in the pocket, after weeks drying in the sun it worked again. I had to repace the battery though.
I bought a new iPhone in the meantime and gave the one from the pool to my girlfriend, she's very happy with it.

3D Blu-ray Spec Finalized, PS3 Supported 157

Lucas123 writes "The Blu-ray Disc Association announced today that it has finalized the specification for Blu-ray 3-D discs. The market for 3-D, which includes 3-D enabled televisions, is expected to be $15.8 billion by 2015. Blu-ray 3-D will create a full 1080p resolution image for both eyes using MPEG4-MVC format. Even though two hi-def images are produced, the overhead is typically only 50% compared to equivalent 2D content. The spec also allows PS3 game consoles to play Blu-ray 3-D content. 'The specification also incorporates enhanced graphic features for 3D. These features provide a new experience for users, enabling navigation using 3D graphic menus and displaying 3D subtitles positioned in 3D video.'"
