This sounds great but the real question is what's its Weissman score?

Honestly having briefly looked through recent videos on their channel - this is the third or fourth 'stunt' of this type. Previous highlights include same guy filling a bath with gelatine and submerging in it until it set and sitting in a bath with a friend before it's filled with plaster.
Each has millions of views.
Yep they are definitely serious.
We are on Sky Fibre unlimited in the UK - no usage caps or traffic management. I can download at full speed 24/7 for a month with no drop in service if I needed to.
Check: http://www.sky.com/shop/terms-conditions/broadband/network-management-policy/ and scroll to the section for "Sky Broadband Unlimited, Sky Broadband Unlimited Pro, Sky Fibre Unlimited,
Sky Fibre Max, Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro, Sky Ultra Fibre Optic products*"
The only listed drop in service is for external network issues or faults.
It's not even expensive really.
From my point of view there's the 'bang for your buck' factor to consider as well, at least for the 'average' home user.
I have a desktop I game on, stream my rubbish gaming occasionally and do all the things gamers do while playing. Granted I don't have much time to game these days but more cores/threads makes that experience smoother and I found the recent AMD Ryzen 5 1600 (OC'd to 3.85Ghz) to be a good match, especially considering the relatively low price.
Would I like an 18 Core/36 Thread i9? Probably. Could I justify the significant extra cost for my, probably quite common, use case? No. Same goes for the Ryzen 7 1700/1800 though - the extra cores don't add up to a useful performance boost for the price, in my use case.
As always your mileage may vary - but the real winner of all this is the consumer. Actual competition between Intel and AMD is a GOOD thing. Whichever camp you prefer.
That's a fair point but in this case it's mostly whether or not he saw what was subsequently reported.
It seems reports of his discovery are actually second hand, complete with transcription errors missing out words such as 'small' and no mention of colour.
It's possible he was really looking at the shadow of one of the Jovian moons traversing across the planet.

Too expensive, considering the level of power compared to other consoles - although I love the idea behind it.
On top of that there's limited third party support which has always been a killer for Nintendo products and the quoted battery life range is wide enough to be something BT would come up with.
Sorry but this is likely going to fail, although that might mean Nintendo will switch to just producing games that bit sooner. They really excel at that and would be a good fit on other consoles/PC.
Except that's not quite what they said and it's been a common misconception this morning.
Upgrading to Windows 10 is free IN the first 12 months after release, after which presumably such an upgrade will have a cost.
There's no indication of a subscription model for that upgrade, indeed to quote:
"This is more than a one-time upgrade: once a Windows device is upgraded to Windows 10, we will continue to keep it current for the supported lifetime of the device – at no cost."
I'm not overly surprised.
I remember seeing a small community actively campaign against a new tower being located in their village, due to it's proximity to a school. They were successful and the tower was never built, however within a month the local paper ran a story in which they all complained about the rubbish mobile signal.
Tower and rubbish signal were the same network and yet they didn't connect the dots.
