American Mathematical Society :: Feature Column American Mathematical Society :: Feature Column Common economic wisdom suggests that if markets are free to operate without intervention, the good times will roll. The recent world economic crisis, now sometimes referred to as the Great Recession, seems to suggest a more complex reality. Much of modern economics is based on the assumption that the "human actors" in the "economic drama" behave rationally.

Does 4K x 2K Offer Lasting Value To Consumers? | DisplaySearch Blog It’s clear from discussions across the supply chain that the industry is considering launching 4K x 2K (3840×2160) resolution TVs, which have four times the information content of current 1080p products.

Internet and e-mail policy and practice Internet and e-mail policy and practice In two previous messages we looked at the question of how hard it will be to get IPv4 address space once the original supply runs out, and how much v4 address space people really need. Today we look at e-mail and IPv6. Of all the applications on the net, mail is probably the one that is least affected by NAT, and will be the least affected by running out of v4 addresses. For one thing, mail doesn't need a whole lot of IP addresses. You can easily put 10,000 users behind mail servers on a single IP, and even a giant mail system is unlikely to need more than a few hundred IPs. (For example, all of Hotmail's inbound servers sit behind 24 IPs.)

A pilot gigabit project initiated by the government is under way, with 1,500 households in five South Korean cities wired.
