Now, if Canon properly implements some sort of binning, they could get the best of both worlds: high resolution when read noise isn't a problem (i.e., bright scene) and good SNR in dim scenes, albeit at lower resolution.
Right. Comcast (allegedly) rips off the consumers and the state fills its pockets with another 100 million dollars of taxpayers funds paid via Comcast. That's just fucking fantastic.
According to KOMO News, the lawsuit is seeking more than $73 million in restitution to pay back Service Protection Plan subscriber payments; full restitution for all service calls that applied an improper resolution code, estimated to be at least $1 million...
I could be reading it incorrectly, but it seems that (if the state wins) >$73M+$1M goes directly to the customers.
IANAL, but I would guess (???) that if the money *didn't* go back to the subscribers/taxpayers, then they could turn around and file a class action (though again, my understanding is that the subscribers will be getting a fair chunk of the $100M if they win).
