    Thread [Q] Sending remote signals over HDMI to optimus?

    HDMI 1.3 incorporates a function to allow the tv remote to control other hdmi units, called regza link in my toshiba tv, but most manufacturers have their own (semi-compatible) versions. From what i understand from the tech specs, the optimus x2 does have HDMI 1.3, so i wonder, can i use the tv...

    Thread Suggestion to devs: audio to IR adapter + remote control app

    I cant program, simply to dumb to learn it, but i had a idea that i think is worth spreading :) Use the audio output jack, connected to a IR diode and write a app that uses audio bursts to control a ir reciever (tv, stereo and so on). I dont know enough about the ir diodes to be able to tell...

    Thread Use android phone as generic bluetooth keyboard/mouse?

    I would love to be able to use my phone as a bluetooth keyboard and mouse for my media center (ps3, xbox media center), but cannot find any info about this..

    Thread store a sim-card and use it "offline"?

    I had a idea but couldnt figure it out with a google search.. The sim-card is as i understand it merely a storage card for a bunch of identity-data. Couldnt it, at least in theory, be possible to make the phone scan and save the sim-card info? That would make it possible to leave the card at...
