"A group of computer savvy researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have developed a new software protocol capable of transporting an entire DVD's worth of data in about five seconds. (Think of that as a two-hour movie, including the added features.)"
Here's my favorite line:
"The most obvious use for FAST, according to researchers, is in the science community, where there is an inherent need to reliably push data and results from experiment to researcher and back again. "
Uh, shouldn't that be: "The most obvious use for FAST, according to people who know better, is at home (or work or school), where there is an inherent need to reliably download pron, mp3s, and warez at high velocities."Posted by tmonkey at April 10, 2003 01:53 AM
