After proving last year that pigeons can transfer data faster than broadband ADSL, Israeli technologists have found an even much faster method: SNAP (SNAil-based data transfer Protocol).: Employing snails strapped to Ben-Hur style chariots with DVD’s as wheels, the group found SNAP to transfer data faster than any other conventional technology. The only downside I see is that if these fast-running, lettuce-eating African snails become the de facto Internet standard in the home, will our salads ever be safe again?
