3 Big data security analytics techniques

It's Bravehearts versus Lionhearts, the qualifier for Euro2000, and it's due to be broadcast live on the Web 2pm tomorrow. BSkyB, which owns the viewing rights, has joined up with BT and UUNet to produce what is apparently the first live Web broadcast of an international football match. The company has said it will give the match unprecedented bandwidth to maximise image quality, but while it is an interesting first, the results are likely to be far from perfect. Unfortunately, we won't be able to tell how well the technology faired. Faced with a dodgy 2in X 3in screen on a computer at home (alone) or a perfect 200in X 300in TV screen in a pub with mates, the latter appears to have the edge. ®
