    No doubt about cloud computing being major. I just found the statement about video conferencing being unimportant somewhat absurd!

    found this article on internet, goes to show how retarded our ISP's services and prices are

    "You could well be a pro at getting virtual headshots, but without a decent internet connection, your shooting is just as good as a baby weeing aimlessly at the ceiling. As such, Demon -- which may or may not be a hint about the operator -- reckons some obsessed gamers wouldn't mind switching over to its £21.99 ($34.19) per month Game Pro service, in return for a low latency ADSL2+ broadband connection of up to 20Mbps downstream and 1Mbps upstream. Sure, this is hardly a bargain compared to other 20Mbps offerings, but with traffic prioritization, a static IP address, and 24-hour support all in the box, you might actually start winning for a change."

    so basically they are saying that paying 34 bucks a month for 20 mb internet isnt a bargain for them. wtf!! i would murder to get that price.
