Creator of increasing TV bandwidth wins 2004 Young Inventors Award
First prize winner Wang Qi Jie showed how his product increases the transmission capacity of existing optical fibres.
Television viewers can then receive greater bandwidth without the added cost.
Wang said: "We can provide more information or data in the same optical fibre without additional costs to the customer."
How is it possible to cram more bad televison throught our networks? I am sure Singtel is still going charge me higher for the addtional bandwith.
What about increasing the quality of television without the added cost? That will sure be a moneymaker.

Mr Tarman: "I used to take a cup of thick black coffee first thing in the morning. But I now find that reading the daily views, suggestions and criticisms on education wakes me up much faster.

You only news source is CNA and Straits Times?
I don't know, but the word "GroupThink" comes to mind when i read this news.

Ok, but I can't afford a premium product. A budget version is fine for me. Got something like that? Are there any budget version of *anything* left in Singapore?
What about a price range that most middle-class Singaporean family (2 children) can afford comfortably? I guess not.
