There's nothing on that site that says it will work with an iPad.

Dumbshit ignores that it doesn't have drivers for the iPad, but thinks that
a device weighing just a few ounces, and that's 2" by 2.5" will load up a
backpack.

1) This assumes the 'Pad has a bluetooth profile installed that knows
how to deal with this baby

2) the 'Pad owners will all look like Larry at the Waffle House, with
his little Nokia tablet

no, he's making fun of "here it comes, all the things that you need to
make the 'Pad useful are making it not useful at all".

Those specs just mean that the iPad can connect to it. That doesn't mean
it can _use_ it once it's connected.

That implies that it's not useful without the camera, which is patently
false.

You're wrong.  If you check further, for it to work with a Mac, you have to
install its own driver, and there's nothing on that web site that says it
has a driver for the iPad.

So although it is hardware compatible, the lack of a driver means that it
won't work.

From the website:

Bluetooth Easy � Bluetooth wireless technology makes setting up your
BT-1 a breeze.

Simply install the BT-1 software and turn on the camera. Pairing begins
automatically.

Presumably, they will write an iPad app to make it usable.

Until such one will be available.

The same with tethering. The 3G-less iPad will connect witl iPhone but
will it connect to the 3G through the iPhone?

Perhaps.  Of course, they'll have to get it through the App Store approval
process if they do write one.

That said, they'd be fools not to.  But will Apple approve it?  I notice
that it recharges via USB; if they don't offer a power supply, there's
going to be a problem with recharging it if you're not near a computer.

It is trivial to have a wart with the some connection.

It all depends on whether or not the iPad will support the necessary
Bluetooth profile. Remember that originally you could not stream music
over Bluetooth from the iPod Touch or the iPhone because the only
the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile later. If they support the Basic
Imaging Profile (BIP) then a Bluetooth camera connection would work.

I think that the iPhone and iPod touch support only the HFP, HSP, and
A2DP profiles. Most other smart phones support all those plus at least
BIP, FTP, OPP profiles. I expect that the reason that these others are
not supported on the iPhone is because they could enable the user to be
a "data hog."

The list of Bluetooth profiles is at
"http://bluetooth.com/Bluetooth/Technology/Works/Profiles_Overview.htm".

Had I been a potential purchaser, I'd wait until I was sure such one was
available. But of course, I have really no need for a camera on an iPad.

What I will be waiting for is to find out whether the 3G-less iPad will
support 3G-access through bluetooth and an iPhone 3G. Steve Jobs never
mentioned tethering.

Well you know in the US, 'tethering' is almost a cuss word to the cell
provider!  :)

Well, I called my carrier earlier today [monday; now it's past
midnight]. The guy I got was quite sure that tethering would be possible
through bluetooth. I already use my iPhone as a 3G modem to my MacBook -
so why not to an iPad ?

Nope.  Bluetooth is divided into "protocols", communications modes to
facilitate connections between specific devices.  "Handsfree Headset"
for your sellphone is one of them.  A2DP Apple just "discovered" so the
damned things would actually play STEREO over BT Stereo headsets is
another.  The phone controls, where the pushbuttons on the headset will
operate the phone that doesn't work on Apple's crapware is another.
There are many, many useful modes, should the bastards that make this
crap, Apple or not, care to ALLOW you to have them.....

HID - Human Interface Device - Bluetooth keyboards, mouse, devices
humans use to communicate with computers over Bluetooth all use HID.

FTP - File Transfer Protocol - Similar to FTP on the internet, but
between Bluetooth devices.  It lets me connect my Samsung NC10 netbook
to my Nokia N800 Linux tablet so the File Managers can see what's on the
other devices' various storage medium, copy/paste/move files between
devices rapidly, wirelessly.

OBEX - Object Exchange.  Another way you can get stuff from one BT
device to another, directly, freely.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluetooth_protocols
Here's more......

Apple's network appliances, ipod, iphone, ipad, itouch have a wonderful
history of supporting only BT cellphone headsets, not even in stereo
(A2DP) until crushed by the customers to do so.  You'll be lucky if iPad

It's why your Macbook refuses to tether to your iPhone's internet.  The
protocol is removed to prevent it.  We can't have you getting internet
service from the "unlimited data" access your iphone is supposed to be
paying for, can we?  That might mean you'd actually USE BANDWIDTH!  How
stupid would that be?

I see they are adding it to the iPhone/iPad when the new OS is
released. Bt-1.com must be working with the new updated Apple SDK for
developers from last week.

But it is implemented in such a way that your carrier has to accept it. And in the cell phone area the United States is a developing country with only one major carrier supporting GSM and 3G. I tether my MacBook to my iPhone when in need, and my carrier sees no reason why I should not be able to do the same with a 3G-less iPad with a bluetooth connection. We've got four carriers three of whom sell iPhones [and you can use iPhones on the fourth too] so whether they allow tethering to take place or not is competition parameter. Of course, all carriers allow tethering. So the lack of tethering is not an iPhone issue, it is a US and an AT&T issue. -- Per Erik R�nne http://www.RQNNE.dk Errare humanum est, sed in errore perseverare turpe   0 Reply per (496) 2/2/2010 10:49:13 AM In article <Xns9D12DC7F0843Cnoonehomecom@74.209.131.13>, Larry <noone@home.com> wrote: > It's why your Macbook refuses to tether to your iPhone's internet.

Actually, in the US at least 3 of the major carriers, including AT&T, allow tethering if you pay them enough for the data plan. AT&T makes an exception of the iPhone, for reasons I know not. > I tether my MacBook to my iPhone when in need, and my carrier sees no > reason why I should not be able to do the same with a 3G-less iPad with > a bluetooth connection.

Have you actually tried tethering with the carrier which doesn't sell iPhones? My experience is that if there is no carrier file on the phone with data settings for the carrier whose SIM is in the phone (i.e. the carrier doesn't sell iPhones, all carriers which do sell iPhones have a file) then, while you get menus to manually configure most of the data settings, the tethering menus are gone. There's no way to configure tethering on a carrier which doesn't sell iPhones as far as I can tell. I hence suspect you'd be in the same boat with the fourth, non-iPhone carrier as with AT&T no matter how much that carrier wanted you to be able to tether.

Until recently, it supported only handsfree headsets. It didn't even have stereo. It STILL doesn't support the AVxxx controls so the headphone buttons can control the music player and phone. Have they fixed that? It "tethers" over USB to iTunes so they can sell you something. It does NOT tether to a real computer to use iPhone as a MODEM for that computer, iTunes or no iTunes.

ATTWS won't allow iPhones to tether unlimited service for$US30.  Their system can't even keep up with the low
data usage of the iPhone, itself.  Tethering to a real computer would
simply bring an already overloaded system to its knees in the big cities
ATT services.

Tethered service with only 5GB/month of data, from most carriers in the
USA, is overpriced at around $US60. ATTWS is no exception. They screwed up making a deal with Apple thinking the Iphone would be like the other smartphones that use very little data without tethering to a real computer.

AT&T makes > an exception of the iPhone, for reasons I know not. Not so in Denmark. I pay$14 a month and get up til 100 MB data traffic
for free. More traffic gives extra pay as does phone calls and sms. But
I would never have to pay more than $17.50 a month for the data traffic no matter how big it becomes. I now see that the standard subscription for iPhone users is$70 a month
with unlimited data traffic, free sms and free telephone until 10 hours
a month.

The same company offers another option without telephone. $9 a month for up til 50 MB data trafic for free and then 20 cents per MB data traffic extra until the maximum of$70 is reached. The prices are rounded off to
fit with USD - obviously they are meant for a laptop rarely used to
access the internet through 3G.

Depending on the location, the subscriptions mentioned give a speed of
up till 16 Mb/s - on my old iPhone 3G up till 2100 Kb/s down and 188
Kb/s up on my slow. The new iPhone 3GS is much faster.

Of course, most places I just use the local WiFi connection ... and
people with need of more data traffic choose other subscription options.

I haven't tried and I even think it would be difficult to do so - and
some people say that tethering with this 3rd company isn't possible with
the iPhone. But there are no problems with the other three and you can
freely move between them.

In the U.S., tethering is not supported on the iPhone on the sole
carrier that sells it. The 3G infrastructure on AT&T is already
overloaded and if they allowed tethering it would make it much worse.
It's not the iPhone that doesn't allow it, it's AT&T.

If and when they do allow tethering, it is unlikely to be unlimited, and
it is likely to cost extra.

Uh, CDMA is used in about 50 countries. And the iPhone 3G isn't on GSM anyway, it's on W-CDMA. It's rather trivial to make the same device with different radios. The phone manufacturers have been doing it for years. You could buy essentially the same phone with CDMA, TDMA, and GSM. If they did an iPhone for T-Mobile they'd have to do it with a different radio since T-Mobile W-CDMA is at 1700 MHz.   0 Reply scharf.steven (901) 2/3/2010 7:07:18 AM nospam <nospam@nospam.invalid> wrote: > In article <1jdbtvv.1gy3wzp138x9qiN%per@RQNNE.invalid>, Per R�nne > <per@RQNNE.invalid> wrote: > > > The iPhone runs on hundreds of other carriers than AT&T but probably > > Apple should let T-Mobile sell iPhones in the US too. > > they could, but it will only work at 2g speeds since t-mobile uses a > different 3g.

Unfortunately, Larry is right. The tethered data plans are $60 a month for 5GB. The iPhone cannot be tethered in the U.S., and it's a virtual certainty that the iPad will also not be tetherable, at least not at the$15 or $30 rates that were announced.   0 Reply scharf.steven (901) 2/3/2010 7:55:10 AM In article <marc.heusser-D2CFC5.08490903022010@news.uzh.ch>, marc.heusser@byeheusser.commercialspammers.invalid says... > > In article <Xns9D12DC7F0843Cnoonehomecom@74.209.131.13>, > Larry <noone@home.com> wrote: > > > It's why your Macbook refuses to tether to your iPhone's internet. > > What? > It works on my iPhone with my MacBook Pro. > > The only explanation could be that your friendly phone provider decided > not to allow it.

It's a very good deal if everything that you want to do is do-able on
the iPad. The Citrix support looks really interesting. You should be
able to do nearly everything other than tethering with it.

And of course the development costs are small when you consider that Qualcomm would be thrilled to design the radio section of the device, if they haven't done so already, just to be able to get the royalties on another 20 million or so devices that would likely be sold if the iPhone were on Verizon. It's another SKU for Apple to keep track of, but the volumes are enormous. Whatever AT&T is paying to keep the iPhone away from Verizon, it better be a pretty huge number of dollars to justify all the lost revenue to Apple, not only from sales of the phone, but from content sales as well.   0 Reply scharf.steven (901) 2/3/2010 9:41:03 AM On Wed, 3 Feb 2010 03:29:49 -0500, Larry wrote (in article <Xns9D14239339888noonehomecom@74.209.131.13>): > per@RQNNE.invalid (Per R�nne) wrote in news:1jdbtvv.1gy3wzp138x9qiN% > per@RQNNE.invalid: > >> and why should Apple develop a smartphone >> for one country only? >> > > Because it's the elephant in the room and several other countries use CDMA > phones, too? > > Just a guess.....(c;] > > Maybe it's because the CDMA carrier's USA 3G coverage map looks like: > > http://vzwmap.verizonwireless.com/dotcom/coveragelocator/images/maps/3Gcomp > arison.pdf I find this map quite interesting. I have a Verizon smartphone, and I live in West Palm Beach, Florida. According to this map I'm well covered. However... I usually get one bar, and have lots of loss of signal, and various other problems. This is actually my _second_ smartphone from Verizon, and the first one behaved the same way. I have _serious_ problems with it from home and from various other locations around Palm Beach County. If I go south into Broward or Dade things improve dramatically; if I go north into Martin or St Lucie, things get worse. But the map says that I should have good coverage all the way up the Atlantic coast throughout the state, and north into Georgia. Hmm. Something not right here... It gets worse. Precisely because the Verizon phone gives so much trouble, I also have a T-Mobile phone... and it gives me three to four bars and never drops a call or otherwise loses the signal. It works perfectly. Verizon is gonna be history as soon as the current contract ends. > > CDMA/EVDO - RED and GREEN > > GSM 3G - BLUE and wait, it's hard to see T-mobile's color...purple? > > Not everybody in America lives in huge cities.

They didn't have much choice. 1700 MHz was the American answer to Europe/Asia's 2100 MHz (which couldn't be used in the Americas because it overlaps with the 1900 MHz band). AT&T and Rogers didn't bother with 1700 since they both purchased considerable extra spectrum for the TDMA->GSM conversion, and had enough left over from that to accomodate 3G in the GSM bands. T-Mobile was too short of spectrum for that, however, and so had to buy what was being auctioned at the time, which was 1700 MHz. I think T-Mobile US and Wind, a startup carrier in Canada, may be the only two phone companies in the world running UMTS 3G in the band (there are some CDMA operators too). Then again, if you look at new 3-band 3G phones made by other manufacturers, of which there are quite a few now (it was fairly rare when the first iPhone was introduced), you'll find they are usually sell two models if they sell world-wide: 850/1900/2100 for the Americas and Australia, and 900/1900/2100 or 900/1700/2100 for Europe and Asia (with the latter maybe going to T-Mobile too). Essentially the current iPhone is an American phone, it is missing UMTS 900. I note, however, that newer versions of the Infineon chipset say they support up to 5 UMTS bands in their glossies, and dual-band WCDMA power amplifiers are available to replace the 3 single-band chips Apple uses now, so Apple might be able to add 900 and 1700 to a new model in the same board real estate as the current model. I'd buy that phone just for the band coverage.

In the case of South Florida, where CDMA has none of the preferred 800 MHz spectrum, roaming buys you very little. The other GSM carrier, T-Mobile, is all 1900 MHz, and they limit roaming onto AT&T to areas where T-Mobile has no presence. Since the GSM carriers use two different bands for W-CDMA 3G data, and no phones have both bands (at least not yet) 3G roaming would not be possible even if the carriers permitted it. When I have visitors from GSM only countries, and they want to go buy a prepaid SIM card for their phone, I advise them to forget about that idea and I let them use a spare CDMA phone that I have on a very low cost prepaid carrier that uses Verizon. Not only is the coverage far, far better than GSM (especially in the kinds of places they visit when in the U.S.), it's about 1/3 the per minute rate, and data is available at a not-too outrageous charge.   0 Reply scharf.steven (901) 2/3/2010 6:18:20 PM Per R�nne wrote: > SMS <scharf.steven@geemail.com> wrote: > >> Uh, CDMA is used in about 50 countries. > > I have been directed to such a list.

Maybe in Dade and Broward. They're piss-poor in Palm Beach County once you
get west of I-95. Yes, there's perfect reception out in Palm Beach, itself...
but I don't live on The Island, and I don't work there either. Out where _I_
live and work Verizon's service is the worst cell service I've ever seen, and
that includes trying to use (ick) Cable & Wireless in Jamaica and elsewhere
in the Caribbean. There's a _reason_ why Digicel ate C&W alive when they
started up in Jamaica; Digicel sold the phones they'd budgeted for a year in
the first three months, and had to bring in more. They went from zero phones
to 250,000 in under six months, while C&W went from nearly 400,000 to well
under 300,000 and falling free in the same time. Even when C&W literally gave
away phones and cut their access rates they still lost customers, 'cause
their service was _rotten_. Verizon is _worse_. At least where _I_ am.

Roaming means that you're about to be robbed at gunpoint by the cell company,
'cause you're gonna be charge premium prices for minimum service. Verizon has
(or had) a roaming agreement with Cable & Wireless in the Caribbean, 'cause
until recently C&W used CDMA phones too. I looked at the 'roaming' prices and
resolved to leave my Verizon phone in Florida just in case it might turn on
accidentally. T-Mobile uses GSM. I've unlocked my T-Mobil phone and can just
get a SIM from Digicel and use that while in the Caribbean. Roaming? What's
that?

This is true for international roaming, but not for in-country roaming
in the U.S.. Now in the U.S. the four major carriers don't charge extra
for roaming, but they severely limit it.

If you leave your phone on while doing international roaming but don't
answer it, you can return the calls via a more economical method. I use
my CDMA phone in Asia like this, returning the calls identified in the
caller ID either from my GSM phone with a prepaid SIM, or from a
landline via OneSuite international access numbers. If it rolls to voice
mail they don't charge you for the call and at least on Verizon, AT&T,
and T-Mobile you can access the voice mail systems via back-door numbers

You got it all wrong, Vicky.  Hell, I lived in Iran and worked for the
Iranian Air Force from 1977 until the shah left in 1979 when the theists

I don't know about Verizon, but AT&T and T-Mobile charge you
double if you let a call go to voice mail while roaming; once
for the incoming call and once for the overseas operator's
call back to your voice mail.  I got AT&T, and T-Mobile before
them, to let me turn off the voice mail divert for exactly
this reason.

Well prove to me you love the Jews. Go to this month's Super Bowl in
their southern home in Miami. If SB Security doesn't get  you for your
wild posts on USENET the 'theists' will probably welcome an old friend
of the Shaw with a spectacular terrorist attack that will go down in
history which we can all see live on TV.

From what I read here on USENET IPHONE I see several admitting
Verizon's old network isn't so hot in Miami so don't count on your
PAGE PLUS being any  good around there either.

Maybe AT&T will allow you to have 3G for $30 on that Nokia 800 with a 3G USB dongle?

In the U.S., the difference is in the cost. If you have unlimited 3G
data on an iPad for $30/month, and you can use your laptop, WiFi smart phone with no data plan, etc. through the iPad, you're going to save a lot of money each month. By contrast, if you have an iPhone on AT&T you're paying at least$70 month before taxes, fees, and messages, for
only 450 minutes a month.. Realistically, if you sign up for 900 minutes
a month, and 200 messages a month, you're going to be at around $115 a month once you pay all the taxes and fees. In the U.S., if you don't want to pay two 3G bills a month, you're much better off with either an unlocked iPhone on T-Mobile prepaid with no data plan, and a$30 a month iPad, or an smart phone or multimedia phone
on Verizon's prepaid carrier PagePlus which offers 1200 minutes, 1200
messages, and 50MB of data for under $30 a month. I expect that AT&T may decide to give a break on 3G service to those that want both an iPhone and an iPad on 3G, or a lot of the iPad customers will drop their iPhone, or unlock it and use it on T-Mobile prepaid.   0 Reply scharf.steven (901) 2/4/2010 10:14:39 PM Michelle Steiner <michelle@michelle.org> wrote in news:michelle- 5FC84D.08352504022010@nothing.attdns.com: > You were wrong because it was merely a regime change from one form of > theism to another.

The main difference is that you will always have your iPhone in a
trouser pocket or in your belt. You will not want to go around with your
iPad everywhere. For that purpose it is too big and clumsy.

Yes - a secular emperor culturally based on shia islam and politically
on enlightened despotism. Compare him with Russia's Peter the Great and

Precisely why I think it's going to crash.  If you have to carry an iPad
around, why not just carry your Mac Air or great little netbook and have a
REAL computer running your favorite software.....not some Apple Box Office

bigger, heavier, shorter battery life and not optimized for the things
that the ipad does. different product for a different purpose. and what
if the person's favourite software is on the ipad?

A laptop is too big and clumsy to use as an eBook in a bus or train. An
iPhone too small. But just handy for lots of other stuff.

Not all Iranians hated the Shahanshah.  I stood in a long line of screaming
Iranian fans behind a low fence waiting for Her Majesty, the Shah's
beautiful wife, to come by in Park-e Saie, which was about a block from my
house in Tehran, a beautiful city park everyone enjoyed on a summer day.
She was there for an art fair which was just huge!

Iran's problem when I lived there from 1977-79 was there were two kinds of
Iranians....educated, hard working, filthy rich Iranians and uneducated,
dirt poor Iranians with very little what we'd call "Middle Class".  There
were two boys, about 12-13 years old, who dragged a gas welding rig and two
big tool boxes down our street to a vacant lot full of waiting Jianes
(French Peugot 2CV, the "Deux Chaveau" tiny car).  My 12-year-old Iranian
taxi driver told me they were very rich because every day they fixed lots
of cars in that vacant lot in the desert sun.  They had nearly no overhead!
Very smart, indeed.  You'd see two little feet sticking out from under a
2CV and hear the occasional clunk and curse like good mechanics anywhere.
By sundown, the lot would be empty, the boys flush with Rials on their way
back up the street towards home.  The poor Iranians, of course like poor
people anywhere, were where the religious zealots got their base, promising
them when the mullahs took over things would be different.  They kept their
promise.  Iran is a decaying dump, today, its ports mostly empty, its proud
oil tank farms destroyed or deserted, it's people all dirt poor....except
for the mullahs.

You misread, as usual to defend the company.  They don't now have
iPads...they have netbooks or AIR and are already using them for ebooks.  I
don't think they will waste another 500-1000 dollars (50-75 Euros) on an
formats, not just the ones Apple/ATT/ebook store chooses to allow read on

Will it read .lit?  Will it read a .lit ALOUD to them as they lay in bed?
They can now and are doing it by the thousands.  I just don't think it's
going to be "cool enough" to replace the AIR they paid BIG MONEY for just
last fall or compete with the ubiquitous \$299 netbook already in their
hands that does everything their desktop computer can do with the SAME

Did you know that when you are using 3G for data you are also using
3G for voice?  You can only connect to one network at once, whether
it is 3G or 2G, and which ever network you are connected to provides
both voice and data.

Users in San Francisco know this since AT&T's 3G network, which is
overloaded, drops voice calls in busy places, but forcing the phone
back to the less-busy GSM network usually fixes that.  And in fact
the carrier you use, 3, has no GSM network in Denmark but voice still
works.

I'm curious about that one.  Do you know this company?

They're listed as a 450 MHz CDMA operator in Denmark.

You can't trust that list since it includes companies which gave
up on CDMA years ago or which never operated a CDMA network at all
(e.g. Telefonica in Mexico, LaqTel in Trinidad).  I'm not sure it

Well that's the problem Larry. The Air, while a very nice form factor
with a good screen, was too expensive and did not sell in high volumes.
Instead, there were a lot of people installing OSX on netbooks.

You're looking at the iPad from the wrong angle. Neither a netbook or an
iPad is intended to replace a desktop or laptop. They are small form
factor devices to use when you don't want to carry something larger. The
netbook runs all standard software and can even have multiple operating
systems installed, but you would not want to run anything that needs a
lot of processing power on it. The iPad runs all iPhone software and
will likely be a better eBook reader than a netbook. And with much lower
in wireless.

I hope the iPad is a huge success. This will drive applications
development. Hopefully no one will have to jail break an iPad to get
many of the useful applications, as is the case with the iPhone.

According to:

They use UMTS.

And I have now crossposted to the Danish cellphone group - where people

The only evidence I eventually found to the existance of the attachment was in the file menu which showed the "save attachment" entry in black, ie not greyed out as usual. Is there a setting at my end that I know nothing of or is this a problem with the sender? ...

Problem using Solve
Dear Sirs, I am new to Mathematica. I am trying to solve a linear system of equations (28 equations/unknowns). The coefficients of this system of equations are function of a set of parameters (deep parameters of my model). I need to solve this system of equations for different values of the deep parameters. To solve the system I use the following command: solution = Solve[Thread[test4[[cho2]] == 0]]; I can solve the system of equations for some values of the parameters. But in most cases I get the following warning message: RowReduce::luc: "Result for RowReduce of badly c...

OPENCBM Problem Solved!
This is a reposting of the original message I listed in OPENCBM & GUI4CBM4WIN. This will make help easier to find for anyone else having the same problem as I did. The original problem: The XM1541 cable not working with OPENCBM. It works! The answer: XA1541 cable. If you have a Compaq Presario SR1500NX with a Mainboard Asus A7V8X-LA Solution, you MUST use a XA1541 cable with OPENCBM. The XM1541 will NOT work on this computer system. I want to thank Wolfgang Moser and Spiro Trikaliotis, creators of OPENCBM, for their time and patients in helping me to solve my problem with OPENCBM. ...
