so it sounds like a simple FFT to pick one with biggest high frequency coefficients. You can do it yourself smapping pictures at different focus and simply comparing file sizes: better focus = finer detail = more high frequency content = more information to store. Think JPG Quantization table and quality setting.

Actually NO, its not standard. Have you ever tried pitching ideas to big corporations? They will all tell you to fuck off instead of signing your NDA. Only exception is if big corporation really wants something you have and is the party that initiated contact. Reason for this corporate behaviour is right there in the article. Risk of being sued is too big.

When you are in the top 3-5% of skilled players.

'Gaming equipment' is a gimmick designed to tax gullible morons. Bright green/red/blue stripes/leds on everything, LCD screens on the BOTTOM side of the mouse, gaming chairs, blinking headphones, its all bullshit for suckers. LOOK AT ME I have $200 keyboard Im so l33T!!!1.

I managed top 5% in Cod 4/RtCW a long time ago using ordinary MS Optical 1.1a. Top 3% in WoT using shitty office model A4tech.

People are so irrational its not even funny.
