    What cool geek things can you do with yours?

    I'm looking for geek stuff. The kind of stuff that makes people say "Holy crap, you can do that with your phone?"

    Example would be the qik.com service that streams video live from your device.

    What other, useful or not, cool things are out there?

    Skyfire is just a browser.

    Is hulu a free service or is it subscription based?

    I can't believe you just said that??? It's a phone browser that will play flash videos without the use of an external player. And it will access sites that the iPhone browser can't. Try watching a video on hulu from another browser. You can't.

    Back to topic - how about controlling the heating/air conditioning/security system of a commercial office building via a vnc connection on my Q9c. Geeky enough?

    Just out of curiosity, what's the big deal about watching video on a 2" screen? Sure, for short things here and there, but why would you want to for something long, like a TV show?

    I have 3 kids (16/13/11). If we take my car (Honda Odyssey - seats 8) on a long car trip, we have the video on for them (middle and back row). Richard is driving and wants to listen to the radio, and I use my Q to "catch up" on TV shows I have missed. (Prefer to bring the laptop and use Tivo to go, but Q is "always" with me...)

    hahahahahhaha Don't get your panties in a bunch about how awesome SkyFire is. I get how cool it it, I have had it forever but non-geeks don't get the cool factor of SF. It's still just a browser.


    Now that's geeky. Not that I have the cash to install all that in my building but still very cool.
