For turn markings and the like, there's no reason not to have marking 100 yards each side of the turn.

Curiously, in Britain, it's the narrow winding roads that are the least likely to have road markings in the first place. And compared to the nice broad straight roads that are pretty much the norm in the US, some of our country roads are extremely narrow and twisty.

Comment Broadcast doesn't matter. (Score 1) 105

Maybe Japan is different, but I really suspect that 4K and 8K broadcasts are simply not going to be a big thing. People who with the latest technology are a lot more into streaming than broadcast TV.

The broadcasters giving streaming services another leg up seems idiotic, and business as usual.

This was probably pretty easy for them. Apparently they have two people watching the movie, and they discuss it afterwards. They also watch it in "cinema-like" conditions, which I guess means they also have a projectionist.

The price is probably worked out assuming that there are going to be a lot of controversial films, that need long reports, management sign off, discussion with the film-maker over what needs to be cut to get a rating and the potential for appeals.

None of this really applies here.

Comment I guess they have that right. Bad idea though. (Score 1) 442

I can totally understand that they don't like adblock. And I guess there's no reason they shouldn't bar them, if they feel it appropriate. They aren't part of the advertising industry, after all.

However, they are clearly operating in the same sphere. It would benefit the advertisers have both sides aware of the views of the other.
