Adena at All Points Blog points out the rather exaggerated reports in the UK computing press about the upcoming lanuch of Giove-A a micro-satellite developed in Guildford.
Rather than be used my mobile phone users to locate cinema listings !!!
Giove-A has just one important job to do..
Giove (Galileo In-Orbit Validation Element)-A is designed to broadcast signals on the frequencies that the operational Galileo system will use, a case of use the frequency or lose it !!
So much for the well informed technical press..
