Well, tonight is the season finale of American Idol, where we get to find out which of the two remaining Davids is our American Idol. It will take Fox two hours to reveal that single bit of information. That is a pretty low data transmission rate - 0.5 bits per hour. If we downloaded an MP3 of a 3 minute song at the rate of 0.5 bits per hour we'd be waiting about 800 years for the download to finish.
