54% would buy television from telecom if the price was right.

| | | | |

Alex's Hoskalyuk's IT Facts blog says Lyra Research's survey results (2/28/2005), with 1,000 people, about their interests in switching to television provided by the phone company. The survey examined consumer usage of advanced digital-video services, broadband-Internet access, and cellular and landline telephones; interest in new features enabled by triple-play integration; and attitudes toward existing and potential television-service providers. For 54% the biggest advantage to cut the cable or satellite TV and move to telecom TV would be lower price. For 17% a la carte channel choice would be the primary motivator. 14% are excited about a single bill covering their phone, high speed Internet access and television. 11% don't know why they would choose telecom TV over other offers, and 4% would switch if some exclusive programs were available on telco TV line.

| | | | |

Tax season is here and April 15th is near for U.S. citizens, and this was a good timing for those who do taxes on their computers. Gracie's Broadband Reports security forum thread mentions Michelle Malkin's article on people's tax return information being exposed to the public due to P2P programs like Limewire and eMule. The problem is not the software, it is the way user share their folders/directories.

Henry Earl was arrested 900 times for alcohol intoxication, and he was quite happy when he got his mugshots taken since 1992. There are currently 62 photographs, and I am sure that number will keep rising! I wonder if he is trying to be in Guinness World Records or something.

Octopus species that can walk with two arms!

| | | |

Yahoo! News reports two little species of Indian Ocean octopus can tuck up six of their arms while running on the other two, U.S. researchers reported on Thursday. They can use their other six arms to disguise themselves from predators, either as rolling coconuts or clumps of floating algae, the team at the University of California Berkeley and Universitas Sam Ratulangi/Sam Ratulangi University in North Sulawesi, Indonesia found. The discovery, published in Friday's issue of the journal Science, discredits theories that walking requires hard bones and skeletal muscle, as octopuses have neither. The story has a streaming video clip as well.
