UK's Sky TV lowers cost of entry with NOW TV box and Big Idea #175 is Emotion

Now TV Box And £10 includes post and packing
Following (but I think not intimately connected) Google's Chromecast product release comes news that Sky are releasing a low cost entry to their UK pay TV offerings in the form of a Now TV receiver.
Rather than a satellite decoder (and associated dish) this is a streaming solution at an amazing  £10 giving the chance to access premium Sports and Movie content (you can buy a 'day pass' for the premium content) that also provides catch up services for the UK Free to air channels.
It's being promoted as making your TV  a smart TV and it'll be interesting to see if it can help expand the audience as the UK's paid Satellite TV growth comes to a halt.

Great to be picking fruit - Blackcurrants and Gooseberries ('Hinnonmaki Red I think)





Big Idea 175 is Emotion

Emotions (in humans) cover a wide range from fear to joy (and there are plenty of others too) - Charles Darwin pointed out the importance in being able to judge the emotions of others.

Some emotions are linked to hormonal changes and the release of adrenaline that occurs in dangerous situations is thought to provide a boost that assists flight.
