iPlayer repeat fees threaten BBC earthquake

delivery charge

Dont market it as paying for a program, market it as paying for content delivery, servers, archive upkeep, forward investment.

Want to view it straight away (live)? Covered in license fee. Perhaps even make 'live' within 2 weeks of first showing.

Want to view it a month later? 10p to have it accessible as much as you like. No license fee required.

Met Office wants better supercomputer to predict EXTREME weather

Distribute it?

Offer a program for people to use idle cpu power like the folding@home and other systems do. There's your new supercomputer for a fraction of the price, and keeps upgrading itself for you.

They have 60,000 followers on twitter, there's probably a few thousand willing to do this, if not more.

Microsoft mulls touchscreen controller for next-gen Xbox

Thumb Up

Not as brave as Nintendo.

I doubt they'd do that as XBHD is so easily corrupted into XBAD.

Though if they are trying to ape Nintendo and its Wii, let's call it the Xcrement, an increment on the last xbox of course ;o)

Crap for gaming, but maybe helpful for other stuff.

Hm. Accuracy with controllers is an issue for the games which earn big moneys (FPS). A tablet based controller isn't going to help much. It would make a rather nice remote control for the media features though.

Then again, we can do that from our phones. Get it so it will control the volume on the telly and the input selection, and we're all set.

It is becoming apparent

from all these comments, that there's a great big gap in the market in America for a decent ISP.
