Wilderness? Only 10% of the land area is remote – more than 48 hours from a large city

But global travel and international trade and just two of the forces that have reshaped our world. A new map of Travel Time to Major Cities – developed by the European Commission and the World Bank – captures this connectivity and the concentration of economic activity and also highlights that there is little wilderness left. The map shows how accessible some parts of the world have become whilst other regions have remained isolated.

Still plenty of places not to get hit by a freighter.  Thanks to S/A for the find.  LINK

    They only use the Blu-Ray discs and that is a major
    reason as to the reasons PS3 games is not easily copied.

    There isn’t any reason why anyone should encourage piracy.
    Defence electronics is another prime example, but given China’s aerial electronics current capability, then ‘technology drag’ is less likely to be an issue.
