What would be the point of blocking TV ads? Unlike on web sites there's no other content when ads are being broadcast (some might say there's not very much content between the ads on most channels anyway...). And presumably TV channels would be much happier not to be available on Free than websites would, so it would likely backfire anyway.
The spam hotline idea should be the default! Do ad companies really complain about people's evil spam filters on their email accounts?
Thousands of schools already use fingerprints for registration, as well as in plenty of their libraries. I guess most of them are 11+ or 13+, but is it really so different just because this is in primary schools?

While the likes of a 3D Miley Cyrus concert aren't exactly groundbreaking, this will give 3D viewing at home much more publicity, paving the way for even more interesting projects in the future. In partnership with retailer Sainsbury's, Channel 4 are producing free 3D glasses so that as many people as possible can watch them, although it's unclear which of the various types they'll be. "

Whether those who have glasses and enjoy the show will number more than those who complain about being left out remains to be seen, but it'll certainly give the broadcaster lots of publicity.

To quote the message that appeared on my Wii from Nintended about the update, 'This update also ads a new feature to the Mii Channel. You can now move a Mii from the Mii Plaza to the Mii Parade. To do this,...'.
I am in Europe, though, so maybe Nintendo held off giving us this one for a while in case it just blew our minds with its promptness.
