Scala Language  - 
 
Hi, I'm still finding my feet with scala. Can anyone explain to me how this map function can full fill its contract and return a 'DbOperation[B]' when its anonymous function param only returns a 'B'

def map[B](g: T => B): DbOperation[B] = (db: AmazonDynamoDB, tablePrefix:String) => g(safeExecute(db, tablePrefix))

(This code is taken from the DbOperation class of the "async-dynamo" project on github that I'm trying to get my head around as a side project.)

Is there some syntactical sugar in Scala that could auto-magically wrap this 'B' in a 'DbOperation' that I'm not seeing?

Thanks

Thanks +Boyd Smith. Its the implicits that caught me out. I've used implicit params before but not implicit conversions, and I've never seen implicit classes before (thanks for the link).

After a little looking I've found that IntelliJ actually subtly underlines the part that is implicitly converted and if you put your cursor on it and press Ctrl+Shift+Q it shows you the possible implicit conversions being used.

Bug Reports  - 
 
Just tried to use the app on my Samsung 10.1 tab running 4.0.4. Appears to work in the sense I can see the device to cast to and the appropriate screen appears (Google music, you tube etc) but nothing actually plays. YouTube app on my phone says "device is taking an unusual amount of time" but it never plays.

Doing some reading of old posts I see it might be a flash player issue (flash doesn't work on my table). Think I'll install a newer ROM and try again.

Hang  Gliding Doggy.

Very cool photo of Dan McManus and his service dog Shadow as they hang glide in Utah, they've been doing this for about nine years.

McManus suffers from anxiety and Shadow's presence and companionship help him to manage the symptoms.

Man's best friend at its finest... ^_^

Help Me!  - 
 
Hi. I'm looking to buy a NAS device and was wondering what people would recommend in terms of CC support. Ideally I'd like something that could trans-code unsupported video formats to CC compatible ones too.

Suggestions please :)

+tim wilkins yep! Go for that... I have the same with Plex Pass lifetime subscription and Android App to send Media Files directly from the Plex Server to the CC. No need to transcode anything on my Android Device at all its just for Plex Remote control purpose. From a technical point of view I like the FreeNAS approach very much... One server running FreeNAS and Plex, powerful enough to transcode with Intel i5 and at least 4-8GB of Ram.... That works smoothly.

I've been trying the last few beta builds but I'm still getting the video stopping to buffer every 2 second or so. Anyone else have this issue (from nexus 5)
