This isn’t spam I block. This is spam I’m collecting that I’d like to eventually report and/or investigate (long story). It’s been days now (not opening any messages to check the last time I received e-mail), and I don’t know what to do. I usually expect perhaps dozens a week, but unless a spam network was recently taken down, I figure Hotmail is blocking e-mail at its source. Has anyone else been having similar problems?

Twice the height and twice the vertical, this HDTV will have four times the resolution of current HDTVs. The name 4K comes from nearly the number of horizontal pixels, contradicting the practice of using the vertical resolution as a standard.
According to the aforementioned Wikipedia article, YouTube does provide 4096 x 3072" content, which is higher than the 3840x2160 pixels such that “4K” is. Is it overkill? Will consumers embrace a higher-resolution standard when some think 1080p is good enough? Only time will tell.
