Are you on crack??
doubling the refresh rate on CRT tvs is definitely useful to fight against flicker as each phosphor will emit light in a burst rather than LCDs that emit a steady glow.
Having a couple of less significant bursts lessens the amount of flicker.
I think the only reason to do so on flat panel screens is another marketing ploy or because the 'in betweening' processes are now very good. Doubtful!
I remember my dad arguing with a sales man who told him a television refreshed at 100 Mhz
Also he had an argument with a man in a bike shop who said that one of those training machines you attach your bike to generated no heat.
re: Copyright, patents and the DMCA
I think there must be a point where you can copyright something numeric. After all, couldn't you claim that the contents of a DVD or a file is just a very long number?
It would be interesting if you could copyright any number, what x86 number would we be using now?
I'm not sure the issue is about having anything illegal to hide really. I think the worry is what an FBI individual could do with the information, such as blackmail a closet homosexual Mormon for example.
