    *breaking news* Warsaw captured with Lumia 1020 from "Nokia Copter"


    Chregu, I think it's something for you ;)
    greetings!

    Edit: There are also two other videos available on Nokia Poland's youtube channel. Showing Cracow (Krakw) & Wrocław

    Yeah, it was more a rhetorical question ;-)

    But it must be very impressive standing next to one of those things. What are they used for (purpose, not function)?
    When they're off they are impressive, when they're on they scare me. Which is not a bad thing.

    First I want to give you a simple formula, E=IR, where E=voltage, I=current and R=resistance (every thing in electricity has resistance) This formula is known as Ohm's Law. It is the basis for electricity. All electrical circuits can be reduced to this simple formula. Of course there are some real world factors and other things come into play when dealing with AC voltage but in essence this is electricity.

    Looking at the formula you will realise that E and I are inversely proportional. So if you have a high E you have a low I and vice versa.

    Transformers use this principle, which is why I'm stating it. Transmission lines run at a high voltage 'E' but a low current 'I'. So what a transformer does is either increase 'step up' or decrease 'step down' these values. So taking typical transmission to a house. You'll have a power station which then uses a 'step up' transformer to get the voltage to a high level, say 110kV, then at the other end you'll have a 'step down' transformer to reduce the voltage down to say 11kV (this is for industrial voltage levels). You then get localized transformers say on street (they tend to be green boxes) that will reduce the voltage to home use, 230V in EU.

    Transformers change both current and voltage. As voltages are reduced down you typically have current increasing. Depending on the windings within the transformer you can get different values. This is known as the transformer ratio. I'm not going to go into that.

    Probably clear as mud?

    Well I sorta understood that because I had an electricity section in one of my computer classes :P

    I could have made it simpler but I wanted to pass on some knowledge. There's actually a lot more to it than that but it gets more complicated and I'd start to lose people.

    Yes I know. There's still threads popping up about WP8.1 and people saying that they have friends who won't go for a WP because they're not confident that it will be upgraded to WP8.1. Tiring.

    I don't get it either why do people think there not going to get updated to WP8.1, Microsoft said there going to upgrade all on WP8 to WP8.1!!!

    MUST THERE BE A SIGN!

    No need for a sign - just tech bloggers to stop spreading FUD. That's all it boils down to. I am seriously considering going on a crusade and making a website for reviewing journalists based on bias, style and content then post the link in every comments section I can find to that reviewers current score. Should straighten them all out - give them a metacritic style score - maybe it should be a critacritic score.

    You start and I'll gladly sign up. Hell I'd be happy to write a few for you. I'd love to start with Charles Arthur of the Guardian.

    Will look into it - the only thing really bugging me is having to read through all the awful reviews and misinformation and make sure I get every single one of the incompetent turds on my website then try and remain impartial while giving out scores all the while avoiding cease and desist orders

    LOL! Yeah reading the dribble will be hard.

    I don't see the cease and desist being an issue. Some of the comments I see on the reviews are pretty nasty. The best way to do it would be like having a page with each reviewer and an overall score rating and a 'review' of them. :P
