  • How exactly does the pedometer work on the Sony Ericsson W580i?

    In my manual, it said nothing about where to position the phone to accurately count your steps. I know it has the advanced calibration feature, but that still doesn't answer my question about positioning.

    Let me phrase this another way:

    I tend to keep my phone at the front of my pack, which is centered over my chest. In order for the pedometer, once calibrated, to accurately count my steps, would I need to keep it somewhere closer to my hips - like in my pocket?

    I think this is a brilliant feature to include on a cell phone, and I hope to have it help me improve my health, but I need to know it's working properly, and not giving me a loose estimate of steps taken in a day.

    Thanks in advance for your insight!

  • Is there more peace in the world than strife?

    I mean in the human world. And at this point in time, not historically.

    What do you think? Please, feel free to elaborate or espouse your own theories!

  • How is a biopsy performed on the skull?

    My mother has an area of her skull (bone) that has been shown to be inflamed via CT scan. She is wondering how a biopsy would be performed on the affected bone: by needle? Or by something larger, like a scalpel? Would the doctor have to shave a part of her head to do the biopsy?

  • Is the visitor counter on my 360 page lying?

    I want to know if Yahoo's visitor counter is legit. Has anyone else had suspiciously high numbers of 'visitors' view their 360 sites?

  • How do you puree meat without a food processor?

    My seven-month-old son is ready to begin trying different meats, but we don't have a food processor to puree it with.

    How do I prepare meat for his consumption without one?

    (Note: I haven't found any jars of prepared baby food at the store that contain just meat; I've only found things like casserole, which he isn't ready for just yet.)

  • What is that "Lorem Ipsum" filler copy used in templates?

    You know, when an example of a template is up for review before being published... The main blocks of copy (text) often seem to contain phrases, starting with "Lorem Ipsum..." (or something close to that).

    It sounds Latin.

    If it is, what does it mean?

    And why not use English words (if it's an English template, or, say, French if it's a French template)?

    In fact, why not use keyboard smashings (asdf jkl and the like)?

    There has to be a reason for this. Can anyone help? Please, it has bugged me for over ten years now!

  • What is that absorbent stuff inside disposable diapers?

    I accidentally threw a[n unused] disposable diaper in with my laundry tonight, and it exploded everywhere, leaving little clear gelatinous globules covering my laundry, my washing machine, and my hands.

    Just what is this stuff inside diapers, anyway?

    And do I have to rinse the globules out of everything before I re-wash it?

    Is this stuff somehow toxic, and are we all going to die!?? (kidding on that one)

  • Which is preferred, "it's not" or "it isn't"?

    This question has been rattling around in my head for weeks now.

    Is there a different connotation for either?

    Is one 'more correct' than the other?

    Or are they completely equal?

    Can you give me other examples of similar contractions, where one would be more preferred over the other?

  • Who can view my Yahoo 360 blog page?

    I want it to be available to the public, but it seems that when I try to view it from another computer, it isn't possible when that user isn't logged into their Yahoo account.

    For example, I tried to paste the link to my 360 blog to my fiance, who then entered it into his browser. A page asking him to log into his Yahoo account showed up. Then, once he logged in, he couldn't even see the blog, just my main 360 page w/ lists!

    Even still, the counter on my main page still says '0 page views'.

    I checked the settings on my blog, and the 360 page itself, to make sure everything is set to 'public'.

    I have even searched Yahoo web and 360 for my nickname, my real name, and my location, and have turned up nothing - even though 360 says you should be able to.

    Do users have to be a) logged in with a Yahoo account, and b) on my 'friend' list (or 'invited') to view my 360 blog?

    If so, I don't think I'll like the service very much. I wanted my page to be viewable by the general public.

  • Help! I'm addicted to Yahoo Answers! What can I do?

    I answer a handful of questions, then check on the status of the questions I've asked, then close the browser.

    Then I open the browser, look through my bookmarks for something interesting, and end up back here.

    I'm just so glad people want to hear my pompous frothings!

  • Is Latin spoken as a language nowadays?

    If so, where? And by whom?

    ... Or is it an ancient language?

    In what situations is Latin spoken, besides the Church, or in naming new species?

    What is the 'use' of learning to speak Latin in today's world, for the average person?
