    Done...I have a caveat you might want to consider for this survey though. I wouldn't be willing to spend a dime on my heating/cooling system until it breaks with the exception of maintenance. Now when I build a home and get input on what type of system I put in the home, all of those answers become different. Where I wouldn't be willing to spend $1,000 to upgrade my system now, I would be willing to spend $4,000-$5,000 more on a system for the options you described in the survey.

    So, how long till we see cell phones similar to the one used by Mr. Stark?

    Granted it'll be virtually impossible to have a frame that thin with all the phone being transparent, but I could see something similar to the Galaxy Nexus in size with the areas above and below the screen being the only parts that are opaque and the rest transparent. Many advancements in the size of components need to be made as well as major leaps in battery tech, but I think it can be done. There's already tech out there for transparent batteries. I don't think it'll be possible to have transparent speakers, connectors, wires/conductor traces/circuit boards, processors, etc. but I think the bulk of the phone could possibly be made transparent one day.

    haha, I've just fallen into the 'older' category, lol. I think everyone here except for Stigy is over 25.

    haha, that would be cool...but I don't think it would be fully transparent.

    We already have transparent batteries???

    The technology is out there and prototypes have been made. Also there is technology out for transparent OLED screens as well. If they make some strides in the battery tech (right now the transparent ones have about half the capacity of normal ones...so I've read) then we could conceivably have all of the electronics contained in the top or bottom (or split between top and bottom) with all the circuit traces/conductors running along the edge between top and bottom and the transparent OLED and battery stacked on top of each other with a transparent insulator between the two to keep the heat from affecting the screen.

    Myself, two stepsons, Evan, 2 cousins, sister in law and father in law are all in July. And my anniversary and my parents anniversary too. We just put up a tree and have Christmas in July. But we have Lobsters & Steamers instead.

    I'm a May baby too. A cusp baby really - depending on what horoscope you look at I'm either Taurus or Gemini. I do tend more towards the Taurus side though. :D

    Geez, all of you are "young uns". At 42, I feel ancient in here! :eek: Okay, not really...I don't act my age, which successfully prevents me from feeling my age.

    I am the cusp! Wife is May 26, so barely cusping Taurus...she is true Gem. I am more of the Cancer side of things, though I drift into Gem every now and then.


    I may just be turning 30 this year but I have the knees of a 40 year old...no joke! I have no PCL in my left knee which has nagging ACL issues. My right knee has seen one surgery, at age 7, and is prone to a displaced kneecap. That's what hockey and rugby, along with being hit by a car, will do to you. I also played baseball like a football player (read: lots of collisions)!

    Wife is another August baby. My birthday is easy to remember as it's Pearl Harbor day.
    26 here so I don't have much on you, Stigy.

    I and 2 of my younger siblings are 2 years apart and all with in a week of each other in june. The fourth baby was 8 years later and on Jan 1...go figure!!
    And my better half is in November.
    (And I was born in 1978....so although I should feel young, serious injuries over the years have reduce my ability to be a kid...sometimes. But at least I can play with my kids!!!)

    So tooth out, swollen and sore but headed home for stronger drugs ice and a nap...see you all on the flip side of this pain!!!!

    Does anyone know how to organize folders in the gallery by putting the pics in an order you want rather than alphabetical or by type or date? I want to order the pictures in a logical manner that lets me show them in a certain order. Thanks!

    Well I lost the battle to the chocolate-craving-fat-chick that inhabits my body. She picked a good fight to win though. Dunkin Donuts has a Cocoa Creme donut out for MIB3 and its divine. :cool:

    THE AVENGERS WAS SO MUCH AWESOMENESS!!!

    Anyone who saw it did you stay for clips after the end?

    A weekend take of almost $208 million. A record breaking Saturday and Sunday. $655 million take world wide. I hope this takes over Avatar.
