The poster has demanded we remove all his contributions, less he takes legal action.
We have done so.
Now Tyberius Prime expects him to start complaining that we removed his 'free speech' since this message will replace all of his posts, past and future.
Don't follow his example - seek real life help first.

Houra for the Cern.
My little finger tells me that the morons of the RIAA and co. won't see this on the good eye.

That's a LOT of porn, shold keep you busy for a while. Guess now you'd be waiting on your computer to process the information rather than the connection to send it.

Streaming DVDs, hmmm. Mix a computer and a television and guess what, you have online video stores where you pick a movie and watch it immediately. Guess that's just one of many possibilities.

InI: Transporting and processing datas are two different things.
As you said, it's the grid/clustered computing of a task that achieves it faster, not the huge bandwidth alone.

I may be pessimistic but I don't think that grid computing will hit the mass market within the next years/decade. People will not let others "steal" their own computer power and/or will find that intrusive and may fear that anyone could have access to their personnal datas. The SETI@home and similar initiatives rely on people willingly giving cpu time. For that reasons I think grid computing will stay in professionals circles.

So far, grid/cluster computing is mostly done in LAN and the 100Mbps bandwidth ( for the low costs network solutions ) is not really a problem. At least, huge bandwidth could help to increase the size of the clusters in industrial/governmental domains.

Nonetheless, huge bandwidth will provide new ways to access datas. It'll increase the fusion between computers, the internet and the previous medias. Jeez, I can't wait to watch PayPerView streamed DVDs on my fridge

Why watch TV on a fridge when you can unroll your poster thick television and hang it anywhere.

This whole thing reminds me strangely of Back to the Future II, where he is playing Wild Gunman in the 80's cafe. "What, you mean you actually have to use your hands?"


"What, you mean you had to WAIT for downloads?"

Also, think of all the wonderful streaming penis enlargment spam videos you'll get in your email.

It will popularize the video-conferences, and remote patients care and maybe remote operations in hospitals.

Ramasax: No, no! I don't want to think about penis enlargement video spam

InI: I thought you were doing an analogy to Sony's new buzz word.
Sony have done some hype around the "grid" capability of the PS3. BTW I find that utopian, since every game will try to use as many PS3 as possible so when the children won't have school all the games will look and behave like crap, and who will pay the phone/net bills for all the PS3 used when you play to VirtuaFighter 12 ?
