Wonderful Spuriosity!

And if “spuriosity” isn’t a word, it probably should be. It seemed the best way of describing the report that Dr Nigel Bannister, a space scientist at the University of Leicester has worked out that on a per-byte basis, text messaging is much more expensive than getting data from the Hubble space telescope. It’s a very silly and utterly pointless comparison, which is probably why it was used in a recent TV documentary.

Read the press release for the detailed figures, or read the report on The Register for the comments.

It’s research like this that has made this country what it is today.[1]
