7 December, 2008

the week it was, 7 December 2008

Many survivors returned home from Mumbai which was under attack by Islamic militants. The only captured terrorist said the group planned to kill 5000 people. The protest in Bangkok's main airports had a good ending, the protesters got what they wanted, removing Thailand's prime minister. The Reserve Bank of Australia cut the official interest rate by one full percent (1%), and two major banks passed on the full percentage cut.

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.

Personally I found YouTube's video quality is usually less than direct video download or 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.

Hey Ant, you never mentioned that December 7th is also known as "Pearl Harbour Day", after the infamous attack by the Japanese at Honolulu , on a peaceful Sunday morning in 1942 I think. This was the catalyst that brought the US into WW2.
