Bits and bytes: Radiohead gig and Halo winners
Published 28/09/2010 | 05:00
Shaky-cam footage of gigs is nothing new thanks to the proliferation of mobiles and YouTube is littered with badly recorded, barely audible clips.
But Radiohead saw the potential when a group of 60 fans pooled their footage of a concert in Prague last month. The fans had edited the slightly wobbly clips into a two-hour stream - but it was hardly worthwhile until Radiohead kindly gave them the original high-quality audio recording.
Now you can enjoy the whole show for yourself for free.
- For those of you with an incredibly short attention span, Senor GIF unearths amusing but brief video clips. It uses the long-standing GIF animation format, which means they're quick to load and require no wacky plug-ins to view.
- Venerable Galway bookstore Kenny's is playing a game of David versus Goliath with the launch of its online shop, promising comparable prices to Amazon and free shipping to anywhere in the world.
- The winners of the Halo: Reach competition were Tom Heffernan, from Kildare, Suzie Kenny, from Dublin 11, and Gary Fox, from Tipperary. Each gets a new Xbox 360 console and a copy of the hit game.Fan friendly : Radiohead's Thom Yorke
