Ive seen those giga pictures before and the resolution is amazing! I recently read where someone has developed a camera with something like a 100GB resolution. Its a medium format and costs about $50k, so slightly out of my budget. lol

According to Big Sis; everyone of them, is a 'Tarrist'. Or, a potential terrorist.

I was talking to a guy in the know just the other day and he was telling me he's seen photos taken from space that zoom so much you can read a dime laying on the sidewalk. Crazy

That was a cool movie. Likely pretty accurate. Remember the '74 move The Conversation, with Gene Hackman?
