    Here's another awesome product from Aukey. Once again, I'm not being paid for any reviews. I'm given a product and asked to give my honest review.

    This touch lamp is GREAT for finding your Samsung Galaxy Note 8 at night, or for lighting up the room so that you can find your Note 8 charger (Now it's officially SGN8 related):)

    The light is very light (19.8 Oz), but sturdy. It's netural decor will make it an enhancement to any room. The touch activator is located on top (reflective silver) so there is not small spot to locate for activation. It is powered by AC 100-240V 50/60 Hz. It consumes 6w and has 20 LED's. You can control the brightness by turning on the lamp by touch, then touching and holding it as the light decreases and increases once at the lowest setting. Once you find the desired setting, the touch activation remembers that setting until you change it again or unpluge it from its power souce.

    The sensor is reflective, and that tends to gather fingerprints. A soft cloth and a few swipes later will take care of that. The cable is about 6' long and it is sturdy.

    Overall, this will make a nice addition to the bedside or where ever else you put it when you need to locate your SGN8 with minimum lighting. I would definitely recommend this to all of my friends!

    Well, I"ve been trying to make this related the best that I could. I had asked one of the moderators about it (posting for Aukey) and he said that it was okay as long as I acknowledged that I wasn't being paid for the reviews. My appologies if you did not see the humorous attempts to comply.:oops: It lights up the room to make the SGN8 easier to find (as stated). :p

    I think it was the fact that you (twice) named a specific phone which came across as a little odd. I sort of knew what you were doing, but couldn't help thinking "but what if I don't have a Note 8?". ;)

    I have a degree in mathematics...not a master of the English language and I kinda suck at it. Forgive my mistypes. But.... it was explained as an obviously humorous attempt to be funny. I missed the mark. BUT....many accessories for the Note 8 work for other phones too. ;)

    In spite of all of that, Aukey makes some great products and I do have a note 8 and many of the products are relavent.

    @Unforgiven....FORGIVE! It's okay if you like one of my posts too.:p

    Oh, I wouldn't worry. For one thing, all of my degrees are in physics, which isn't a discipline noted for being much more literate than mathematics ;). For the other, I found the idea of a tabletop light that was an accessory to a particular model of phone was kind of amusing (that's just the way my mind works).

    Physics?...we should get together and solve all of the worlds problems and answer the one question that has plagued me for many years. My other degree is in Aeronautical Science, so I have always wondered if you could take an airplane into outer space, accelerate it to the speed of light, then turn on the flashlight of the SGN8 (to stay on topic here), would it do anything???:thinking::thinking::thinking: I'm sure that our brother Newton and his laws of motion would apply, but there are just to many variables as to who would see it.:D

    Well since we are in the off-topic forum here...

    Actually Einstein has a clear answer to that one: you can't accelerate it to the speed of light! Of course if you have enough energy you can get very, very close: the protons at the LHC travel at 99.999999% of the speeds of light, for example. But there's only about a nanogramme of protons in the beam, so accelerating a spacecraft to that sort of speed is much harder. However, the first postulate of the special theory of relativity is "the speed of light in vacuum has the same value in all inertial reference frames", and this allows us to answer the question of how the light would appear to you and how it would appear to me.

    So if you are in a spacecraft that's travelling at 99.999999% of the speed of light relative to the Earth and turn your phone's flashlight on, you will see the photons from the flashlight travel away from the phone at the speed of light (i.e. if you were to measure the speed of the light coming from the phone you'd get an answer of 3*10^8 m/s). You'll also see the Earth flash past you at almost the speed of light in the other direction.

    Watching from the Earth, I won't see your phone's flashlight because it's inside the spaceship ;). But let's say you strapped it to the nose of the ship so that I could see it as well. What I would see is your ship passing me at 99.999999% of the speed of light, and the photons from your flashlight passing me at 100% of the speed of light, i.e. 0.000001% faster than your ship.

    So you see the light speeding away from your ship at 3*10^8 m/s. I see the light travelling just 3 m/s faster than your ship. That apparent contradiction is the consequence of us both seeing the light travelling at the same speed, but differing about our own motion (I think I'm at rest and you are passing me at high speed, you think you are at rest and I'm passing you at high speed in the opposite direction). And both of us are right: what relativity means is that neither of us has some special status, so you can't say that one of us sees what's "really" happening and the other is being fooled, both of our measurements are equally valid. The reason there's no contradiction is because while we measure the same speed of light we are measuring distance and time differently (how else could we both see the same speed when we're moving relative to each other?). The maths is very simple, but applying it correctly tends to be trickier!

    As to what would happen if you could travel actually at the speed of light, the correct answer is "the theory does not describe that possibility". Logically I would see the light travelling at the same speed as the ship, so to me it would look like you see the light as stationary. But I would also see no time passing for you (your clock has stopped). So if you ask me what I expect you to measure for the speed of light, it would be distance (0) divided by time (0) = undefined. But as I say, the theory doesn't describe this situation, because you cannot accelerate any material object to the speed of light.

    Of course I would strongly recommend not trying this experiment. If your ship is passing the Earth at LHC velocities, it means that it's also passing through the interplanetary medium at those speeds. We call that a vacuum, but it isn't: there are atoms, molecules, dust grains etc there, and effectively each of those is coming at your ship at the speed of an LHC beam particle! The density might be low, but you are going to pass through 300,000 km of this stuff every second, so your ship is going to take a lot of hits. My guess is that you'll pick up a lethal radiation dose before the radiation damage weakens your ship to the point where it breaks up, but I'm not a material scientist so that's only an educated guess ;).

    Best answer seen to date. However, I'm unsure if you would actually see the light IF....and that is a BIG "IF" I could accelerate to the speed of light. I'm thinking that I would see it, but no one else would on the ground. It's actually designed to be a trick question based on the laws of relativity. Go figure I'd present that to a Physics genius. Well played Hadron...well played! :rob::cool:
