Perez faces up to life in prison. He had been stabbed nine times and suffered blunt force trauma to the head, a deputy medical examiner told jurors in the 437th District Court.

Prosecutors acknowledged during closing arguments Friday that Perez was not the one who wielded the knife. His uncle, co-defendant , already has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for that.

But under Texas' law of parties, anyone who directs, encourages or aids a crime is just as responsible.

Playing a real time video stream from iPhone camera on a 20 seco

I am trying to see if it is possible to record a video from the iPhone's camera and write this to a file. I then want the video to start playing on the screen a set time after. This all needs to happen continuously. For example,Sherlock dvd I want the video on the screen to always be 20 seconds behind what the camera is recording.

Some background:

I have a friend who is a coach and would like for his players to be able to see their last play. This could be accomplished by a feed going to a TV from an iPad always 20 seconds behind what is recorded. This needs to Nikita series continually run until practice is over. (I would connect the iPad to the TV either with a cable or AirPlay to an Apple TV). The video would never need to be saved and should just be discarded after playing.

Is this even possible with the APIs AVFoundation offers? Will the iPhone let you write to a file and read from a file at the same time to accomplish this? Any other better way to accomplish this?

You can probably do things to help shrink the amount of memory you need to buffer, like reduce the size of the frame or resolution. As for playing those frames out of the buffer, you could either write the last X seconds from that circular buffer out to a file (which you could then open via AVAsset assetWithURL:) or you might be able to create something from the buffer directly via AVAssetReader.Breaking Bad dvd I not 100% certain, having never done exactly what you trying to do myself.

Phonegap or native for a TV Guide app

Really the decision to use phonegap comes down to abilities,Nikita series resources and performance needs. Phonegap will be slower than native just by it's very nature that it's another layer on top of native whereas native is optimized to be as fast as possible. Then the second question is your resources. If you only plan on releasing to one platform and have the ability to build native, that could make the most sense. On the other hand if you don't have the resources and want to build to multiple platforms quicker, phonegap will definitely fill that need.

For frameworks, there is sencha, jquery mobile, Dojo Mobile (I find that framework to be the most difficult to use) and Kendo UI (newest of the bunch but not really free either).

PhoneGap just wrapps a native-app South Park Season 14 hull around a browser-application. This means: the phonegap-app must simulate a webbrowser and its javascript-engine. It does not convert your application into a real native app. This makes phonegap-apps slower than native apps.

I made bad experiences with an app that is scrolling through a long table of more than 1000 items, each of them holding five text-strings and two icons. Scrolling through the first 10 or 20 items was reasonable, but at item #50 it became really slow, and beyond item #100 scrolling was almost imposible.

classics films headed to DVD

Some of last summer's big productions start hitting DVD this October, as witness "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," "Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs" and "Land of the Lost." Don't those titles kind of sound like the same movie?

For something completely different, ' "Silent Light" takes place in a Mennonite community in Mexico. Long, slow, quiet scenes observe one farmer's crisis with adultery. The story seems like a remake of Agn's Varda's "Happiness" but turns out to be a remake of 's "Ordet." If you haven't seen those movies first, please do.

"Private Century," made in eight episodes for Czech TV, assembles home movies of people who lived through WWII and the rise and fall of communism, so that great events are examined in terms of their impact on ordinary families, weddings, birthdays. History is a collection of individuals. Movie cameras were pricey, so not everyone had them. A common thread is that people got through the war fine and then went to jail or lost possessions in peace. Most are at least 30 years old and not always in great shape, but a few are imaginative and striking, such as when he traces his own shadow or superimposes his face on classic portraits. A series of skits, such as a man watching TV of a man watching TV of a man watching TV, etc.,Pretty Little Liars actors make him seem like the of Germany.

's "Nightwatching" illustrates a theory about Rembrandt's masterpiece "The Night Watch." As drama, Greenaway's painterly approach is more static than the painting and becomes sour and sombre. A bonus documentary on the same topic is informative and could replace the feature.

": Free Radical" collects the first three films of this free-wheeling, satirical director who thrived on the breaking of taboos and the destruction of narrative forms. These are very 1960s collisions of provocative ideas about work, sex and death. (He eventually had to leave Yugoslavia to make uncensored outrages like "Sweet Movie," which is available from Criterion.)

Among classic reissues, Walt Disney's " and the Seven Dwarfs" is being released in a Blu-Ray "Diamond Collection" promising interactive features. It includes a standard DVD; the regular DVD package arrives in November. There are also new editions of "Bedknobs and Broomsticks" and "Pete's Dragon," musicals that combine live action with animation; these aren't on Blu-Ray yet.

"The Wizard of Oz" has been repackaged many times, but after all, it's possibly Hollywood's greatest movie. Now there's a 70th anniversary two-disc edition and a four-disc "ultimate collector's edition" (also on Blu-Ray) that adds two silent movies, a TV movie with as , and new extras. A remastered "My Fair Lady," another evergreen musical, adds minor extras.

Running almost 10 hours, 's "The Human Condition" could be called the Japanese "Gone With the Wind,"Friday Night Lights Season 5 but that undersells this story of one disillusioned man's travails through Japan's wars in China and the Pacific. A mammoth achievement in widescreen black and white, now from Criterion.

"The Five Deadly Venoms" and "King Eagle" are '70s classics of swordplay and hand-to-hand styles directed by master , who threw his camera into the action. From the same studio, "Shadow Boxer" has another vengeful hero, a real-life champ who died before the film came out.

A TV classic awaited by many, "It's Garry Shandling's Show" was a partly improvisational spoof that discussed its own status as a sitcom. All 72 episodes are now coming out on 16 discs.
