So there is an 87% chance that the person can be uniquely identified.
Though taking your point into account means there's only a 50% chance of that.

And then looking at that 50% chance, there's a 50% chance that that is right.
So the overall chance approaches zero. Amirite?

Comment It's surprising how much power new TV's use. (Score 1) 619

I got a 50" plasma about 6 months ago. I researched all the specs to make sure I got a great tv - and I did. But what I hadn't paid any attention to was power consumption. I was pretty surprised when I learned my new TV uses 690W.

If you look at the back of a plasma tv they have fans on the back. The screen itself gets warm enough you can feel the heat on the back of your hand 3" or 4" away.

Do LCD's of this size use this much power?
