NetProphet: Time zones.
WITHthe recent kerfuffle about time-lag on racing broadcasts, it was interesting to read on the gambling blogs, about a time-delay `scam' ring being uncovered in Hong Kong.
The gang, busted for illegal bookmaking, had links to the Triads (who doesn't?), and posted people at football matches in England and Spain, who relayed instant goal news via mobile phones.
The Hong Kongbased team then leapt in to bet in-running with local net bookies, who presumably had a longer time-lag on their own information feed. Genius.
