Freeview HD - your questions answered

peter 3

No

Instead of having a switch over to Digital and then introduce HD it would have been better to combine the two as many said back before the trials began. Otherwise everyone who want's HD and has already likely got Digital, will throw away their new box, and buy a new box.

Everybody loves the BBC and it doesn't cost anything, Murdoch should learn a thing or two.

More interesting

If the information was only released on a need to know basis, like weapons stations on Mars they could mount a server half way and have it respond to queries in half the time it would take earth to respond.

Jobs Horns

2.2 Terrabytes

Is for a 95% success rate and the complete table is 128 Petabytes I think.

Most executives will have 3G phones if they make any money. This tech will let people listen and record calls close enough to their location, best use would be those telephone banking calls where people have to type in their password assuming they call from the same place often enough and this software allows you to pick out their phone.

Boffins render full HD million-point animated hologram

Does it have to be real time?

Can't we just play back their work on an identical rig that could do a test

and adjust till it was calibrated, then watch 3D movies instead of computer

games.

Either way this the coolest thing ever.

Government unbans dirty vids but bans 'legal highs'

FAIL

Ignorance of the law is no excuse

2 years for posession of GBL, like acetone free nail polish?

The net is going to cast very wide to include the bulk chemicals used to produce synthetic drugs like Spice, as they will start altering them to avoid whatever the new law lists as illegal.

Esepcially if like GBL they can find something that metabolises into something else, or where the user performs some final process like mixing with alcohol or some common drugs from the chemist.

It may just create a new art of drug making that results in something far worse or addictive, like glue sniffing.

Why have it on the card.

Paris Hilton

Mistakes are part of learning

Have they tried feeding it chocolate or shining a laser onto it maybe

bathing it in radiation or playing popular 80's hits on oversized loud speakers.

If they don't have a microwave right next to the petri dish or leaking containers of

DNA lying around then nothing will happen!
