19 October, 2008

the week it was, 19 October 2008

Australia Government decided to spend the budget surplus (A$10.4 billion) to safeguard the Australian economy. Not to bail out the banks as in USA, but to give direct benefits to pensioners, low-income earners, first time home buyers. The stimulus package hit the markets. Qantas Airline was in trouble again. A preliminary report blames a computer fault involving the autopilot. Modonna and Guy Ritchie confirmed their separation. Here's the weekly The Week It Was. As usual, the clip is available in H.264 format. Why do I prefer H.264 video codec? See this QuickTime codec comparison page and judge yourself.

QuickTime: The Week It Was
(Click the screenshot above to watch the video clip)

Australia Government decided to spend $10.4 billion budget surplus to safeguard the Australian economy. To give direct benefits to pensioners, low-income earners, first time home buyers. “Decisive action, responsible action, early action” as the Government called it. The stimulus package hit the markets. A Qantas Airbus went on diving for no appeared reason, it dropped 200 metres (650 feet) in mid air. The flight control computers commanded a nose-down movement. 74 injured, no causalities. Modonna and Guy Ritchie confirmed their separation. Modonna is worth about $500 million, and Guy Ritchie is only worth $35 million in comparison.

Although personally I found YouTube's format is usually then direct video download ot streaming, I know there are many people prefer YouTube. For those who prefer videos in YouTube format, here's YouTube version:

H.264QuickTime 7The video clip is encoded with state-of-the-art video codec H.264, which delivers stunning quality at remarkably low data rates. QuickTime Player 7 (free) is recommended for watching the video.
