    Woman streams

    Does "stream" here mean "run with tears"?

    No, it refers to streaming video on the internet - showing video in a compressed format in real time.

    You watch the video in a continuous stream as it downloads, versus waiting to download the entire file before playing it.

    I believe she posted the recording to her Facebook page, which uses streaming video.

    She used a new Facebook feature called live streaming which effectively connects the sending device's video camera directly to the playback screen on any device watching the stream. Viewers don't have to wait for a video to upload; they can watch it while it's being recorded.

    I hear that the next-generation iPhone will be able to do the same kind of thing with audio. So, if I wanted to talk to you but you were not nearby, I could tap a few icons on my phone and your phone would make a noise to alert you that someone wanted to talk to you. If you wanted to accept the request, you'd tap an icon labeled something like Answer, and our devices would be virtually connected to one another. You would hear my voice as I was speaking, and I could hear yours when you were speaking.

    Of course, one hears all sorts of far-fetched things. Only time will tell whether this one becomes reality.

    We have been able to do "live video calling" for years on smartphones and computers. It works like a phone call but with video and it works over your data connection, not via the phone line.

    It's not the same as live video streaming, which was described in the first few posts here.

    A few nights ago, a friend of mine attended a music concert. For about three minutes during the show she "live streamed" it over Facebook. Anyone who is friends with her could watch it as she broadcast it, almost as if they were there with her.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Ahh, live audio streaming, brought to you by Alexander Graham Bell since 1876.

    Apple apparently has a patent on technology that would allow them to remotely disable peoples' phone cameras while at event like concerts, to prevent this sort of thing.

    Of course the entire "Big Brother" vibe of actually deploying such a technology has prevented that. So far. Imagine a world where the police or army can disable your camera whenever they want.
