Youtube player supports Stereoscopy (3D) content. The player provides various options to deliver 3D content differently to your browser. There is an option “Cross-eyed” to watch 3D (with 3D) with your naked eye. But, you should strain your eyes to overlap two images. (I tried and couldn’t make it L). Other options should allow you to watch the video using the 3D special glasses. Currently, youtube doesn’t support Polarized 3D glasses.
Watch this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?
Copying text from the video:
HOW DID I MAKE THIS?
I simply used 2 identical (very cheap) cameras and placed them in the same general direction (both level with the lenses separated about 2 1/2 inches from each other). Then I resized the videos in editing and placed them next to each other (like you see in the "cross-eyed" setting). Once it was uploaded I added a few tags to trigger YouTube's new 3D viewing feature. The tag "yt3d:enable=true yt3d:aspect=3.55:4" is a custom tag I made specifically for this video and may not work for your video if you use it but it wouldn't hurt to try I guess. So just put that code into your tags if your video looks like mine.
HOW TO ANIMATE IN 3D:
Unfortunately, I had to cross my eyes to edit in 3D. I don't have any big fancy programs or a team to animate for me like most 3D studios have. So I like to keep it simple. It was a pain in the arse making this but it worked and I'm happy for that.

Android running on an iPhone. A member of iPhone development team called Planetbeing have ported Android to run on iPhone. iPhone can be configured to dual boot iPhone OS and Android phone. I even had a glimpse of Android running on iPhone in one of my friend's mobile. I would rate the experience is quiet better than the Samsung I5700 galaxy spica The graphics transition is quiet faster.
The port is currently available only in the first generation iPhones. Hope it would soon be available in iPhone 3G and 3GS models. The source code is available online here
Have a glimpse on this video.

Linux users, just use the 'cat' command to merge the files. The syntax that I used is as below:
$ cat file_name.avi.* > filename.avi
This works because the cat command takes filenames in alphabetical order and merges the files.
- Have fun.

- 800 MHz Qualcomm processor.
- Android v1.5, you can upgrade to v2.1.
- 16M color, compared to 256k color in my current mobile.
- 3.5 mm audio jack. SE users will understand why this is a required feature :)
- 3.2" TFT capacitive touch screen display.
- wi-fi, gps
- The most appealing thing is you get a xVid/divX player application.
With Android, you have a open box. You can write and use your own applications. Current market price is around Rs.12,000. No wonder, if I buy this as my other mobile soon :)
