Ask your burning questions on battery technology, screen innovations, wireless networks, and much more."</i><br /><br /> <img src="http://www.smartphonethoughts.com/images/Kris-Oct05-PDCFutureHW.jpg" alt="User submitted image" title="User submitted image"/> <br /><br />What would you ask if you were in front of a panel of mobile experts from Microsoft, Motorola, HP and Lenovo? Would you ask them about the Bluetooth eye glasses that can help you read the tiny Smartphone screen without squinting? Or would you ask them about speech recognition? Or maybe you would like to know whether a RAZR based on Windows Mobile is in the works or not? The attendees in this PDC 2005 panel discussion asked these and some other interesting questions. This discussion recording is <i>1 hour 27 minutes long,</i> I would recommend viewing it over the weekend. :-) And do let us know your thoughts and comments. I will post mine later. ;-) All I will say for now is that, I was pretty amazed when I heard the Motorola representative praise HTC for doing a fine job with Windows Mobile.

I have been trying to download stuff from this site for the last day, and no matter when I try it, the download will start and then slow down to a crawl before eventually timing out. :evil: I'm guessing that they are getting hammered with traffic. I will keep trying. There are some interesting things posted there.

That's why you need to watch it late at night like around midnight, like I did. ;-) Or over the weekend.

But the site is slow at times.

I started to download it last night around 11:30. Within 15 minutes the ETA was 9 hours. When I got up this morning, it had timed out. :( I will keep trying, but I think it's going to take a while. :roll:

Try watching it live, instead of downloading the zip file. I remember trying the zip file and having a hard time. Then just played it live.

What zip file would that be? I can't seem to find a zip file. The streamed version is unwatchable here, keeps stopping.
